We are mortals – we live one life and die one death – then it’s eternal joy in heaven or eternal misery in hell. We ask the Lord for forgiveness of our sins and we die daily to our flesh that we will not practice sin.. (That is knowingly committing sin – over and over, knowing that it is sinful and doing it anyway) We learn our lessons from past sins and walk the journey of life learning from our mistakes – asking for and receiving forgiveness for our sins along the way- this is a daily journey – to our eternal destination. (That is if we are believers in Jesus Christ and have made Him Lord of our lives . Those who have not will live eternally – but not in heaven.)
Hebrews 9:27-28 The Voice (VOICE) 27 Just as mortals are appointed to die once and then to experience a judgment, 28 so the Anointed One, our Liberating King, was offered once in death to bear the sins of many and will appear a second time, not to deal again with sin, but to rescue those who eagerly await His return.
What are you doing with your life? Have you given thought to this passage? One Life – to fulfill the destiny for which God Himself created you. Are you fulfilling your destiny or are you running away from it and serving the evil sinful devil?
God is the God of life not the God of recycling – He is creative – He creates – He has all creative power and He creates mortals to live one life and die one death. Jesus came once and offered His life so that our sins can be forgiven. He will come again to rescue those who eagerly await His return. We are only promised today. I Love the Voice Translation of the Bible –
James 4:13-17 The Voice (VOICE) 13 Listen carefully, those of you who make your plans and say, “We are traveling to this city in the next few days. We’ll stay there for one year while our business explodes and revenue is up.” 14 The reality is you have no idea where your life will take you tomorrow. You are like a mist that appears one moment and then vanishes another. 15 It would be best to say, “If it is the Lord’s will and we live long enough, we hope to do this project or pursue that dream.” 16 But your current speech indicates an arrogance that does not acknowledge the One who controls the universe, and this kind of big talking is the epitome of evil. 17 So if you know the right way to live and ignore it, it is sin – plain and simple.
He is the God of second chances during life – Jesus is always there to offer forgiveness for wrong mindsets, for sin – He gives us one life to live and one death to die.
Holy Spirit of Truth – Please come and impart truth to this generation – I pray for the Salvation of this generation of people – that they will know You – The Truth and that You will make them free, Jesus Christ You alone are the Way, Truth and Life, No man comes to the Father except by You. John 14:6The Voice (VOICE) Jesus: 6 I am the path, the truth, and the energy of life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
I personally, eagerly await His return. Do you? The choice is always yours..Life – Death – Heaven – Hell. but rest assured you only have Once to Life and Once to Die.
Ephesians 4:21-24 The Voice (VOICE) 21 If you have heard Jesus and have been taught by Him according to the truth that is in Him, 22 then you know to take off your former way of life, your crumpled old self—that dark blot of a soul corrupted by deceitful desire and lust 23 to take a fresh breath and to let God renew your attitude and spirit. 24 Then you are ready to put on your new self, modeled after the very likeness of God: truthful, righteous, and holy.
Romans 12:2 The Voice (VOICE) 2 Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.
Abba Father – I pray in Jesus name – I take my seat in Christ Jesus – take the authority given to me by the Power given to Jesus and I apply His blood over each person – I pray individually and corporately that each one will come to know You Jesus and crown You Lord of their life and that we will all corporately be the Body of Christ that Jesus is coming for – walking in power and authority – living the one life that You have chosen us for and fulfilling our destiny in You.. Amen
