Grace + Faith =  Salvation

Eph 2:8-9  It is by grace through +  faith that you are saved =  Enter in the kingdom of God.

John 3:5 Jesus replied - Unless you are born of water + spirit you will not  = enter into the kingdom of God.

Grace is Gods part- you have nothing you can do.
Faith is our part-> in the process of trusting of God.

How does Faith come in to a person? - Listen to what Jesus say to you.
Rom 10:17 - Faith comes by hearing the word of God -- Listening the word of God. - Listening to Jesus say to you.
Jesus = Word.  John 1:1

God speak to us if we listen to what the word wants to say to us.
Jesus those who has ears let them hear. Those who want to listen let them hear.Are you ready to obey  to what the word says. Like Mother saying to the kid. Will to listen to what I say?

Words of Jesus

Studying the words of Jesus could be the best thing to happen - to analyse what Jesus  is saying to us  - The Words of God to us.

Those who will love me will obey my commands.

Drink Not!!

- Drug - intoxicating.

Most people drink some alcohol. However, even a small amount of alcohol can be dangerous if you drive, operate machinery, or take some types of medication.
Nutritional standpoint - Its not good for health.
Results in poison to your body.
Alcohol is a drug that is absorbed into the bloodstream from the stomach and small intestine. It is broken down by the liver and then eliminated from the body.

- Why drink.

Beer contains 5% alcohol 
Wine - 10% alcohol

 > Defiling your self
 > Satan a opportunity to  attack you.  - Not having the armour of GOD.

Daniel 1:8, "But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank.* We are at liberty in the Lord, but we still have to be aware of how our actions affect othersPeople will often say, Well, I can wear what I want or drink what I want or do what I want because I'm not under law. I'm under grace. But the Bible shows us something else that we need to consider:Romans 14:21, "It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak."1 Corinthians 8:11-13, "And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend."1 Corinthians 10:23, "All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not."Alcohol has caused countless numbers of people to experience death, heartache, broken homes, sinful mistakes. You name it. Obviously a whole lot of people are stumblingbecause of it. Instead of justifying your drinking, realize that someone else may be made weak because of you.We should be aware of the image we portray as ambassadors of Christ. In whatever we are doing, we should ask ourselves, "Will this thing cause someone weaker in the faith confusion or alarm?" "Will this cause those who do not know the Lord to believe I am worldly?" "Will this make my kids think that I approve of them engaging in this behavior?"* I don't want to give anyone any "ammunition" that they can use against me, and also I don't want to weaken my testimonyWhen we personally engage in something, to a certain extent doing it "disqualifies" us from speaking out against it. How can I tell my children not to drink alcohol if they see me drinking? How lame does it sound when they say, "But you do it," and my response is, "Oh, but I know my limits."The Bible tells us to "Abstain from all appearance of evil" (1 Thessalonians 5:22). We are not to even give the appearance of doing something that may be judged by someone as evil. If someone sees me at a restaurant with a glass of wine in my hand, do they know whether that is my first glass or my fifth? All they see is someone drinking an alcoholic beverage. I want people to behold my good works, not my questionable behavior.1 Peter 2:12, "Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation."And this applies to other areas of our life, not just the appearance we give when we drink alcohol. For example, I know of an unmarried Christian woman who has a male roommate. Now, no matter how innocent their relationship is, to the world it appears that this couple is "shacking up," possibly fornicating. They are giving the appearance of evil.We need to see our lives through the eyes of others and act in a way that glorifies God. And we need to do all we can to not give place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27) or do things that weaken our testimony as Christians.* We are to be salt and light!Matthew 5:13, 14 tells us, "Ye are the salt of the earth...Ye are the light of the world."As a Christian I should be striving to set an example to others. I want to show the world that they don't need to drink to be social and happy -- they can be filled with the Holy Spirit. I want to show my brothers and sisters that they don't need to conform to this world's standards. They don't have to just blend in. What good is salt if it has lost its flavor or light that is hidden under a bushel?Romans 12:2 "Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God."1 Peter 2:9, "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.."Matthew 7:13-14, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."This world is doing a whole lot of "broad" stuff that deals with alcohol, fashions & beliefs. I do not want to live like the world, look like the world, or agree with the world, unless, of course, the world is saying that Jesus is Lord and that He is the only way to be saved! I want to lift the world to higher standards, God's standards. I want to glorify God in all that I do. 1 Corinthians 10:31, "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."* We are at war with Satan and are subject to spiritual wickednessThere is a war going on, and I don't want even one person to take this war lightly or be unprepared because they caught me slacking off. I don't want to give the impression that it is okay to "relax with a little wine" while the Enemy is plotting and scheming!1 Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."Ephesians 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."1 Peter 2:11, "Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul..."* And, finally, for the people who insist that they drink "responsibly," can you even really trust yourselves to know when enough is enough?

Church the Bride

Keywords - Bride - church - preparing the bride- radiant church - washing by the word.Christ, the Bridegroom, has sacrificially and lovingly chosen the church to be His bride.

Promise of Jesus - John 14:2-3 Coming of Jesus

Holiness and preparedness.

(Ephesians 5:25-27).
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy ...
Who is presenting.
-> Word cleans
-> presenting  -  with out stain and wrinkle or other blemish
-> Holiness

2 Corinthians 11:2Faithfulness
I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.
Now as the church submits to Christ

Revelation 19:7–9 (NIV)
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! 
For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. 
8 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.”

(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)
Revelation 21:2
Apostle John sees the city coming down from heaven adorned “as a bride,” meaning that the inhabitants of the city, the redeemed of the Lord, will be holy and pure, wearing white garments of holiness and righteousness. Some have misinterpreted verse 9 to mean the holy city is the bride of Christ, but that cannot be because Christ died for His people, not for a city.

Revelation 22:20 (NIV)20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” 
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom, Past and Future
Bethrod King called Jesus.
‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, andon a colt, the foal of a beast of burden’” (Matthew 21:4-5).

Matthew 25:1-13

That was their job, their calling—to be ready (v. 10).

->Neglecting the importance of salvation.

-> Not serious towards the second coming.

-> Loosing the focus of Target in life.

Cannot share why?

It’s meant to teach the impossibility of borrowing faith. It’s meant to teach the impossibility of borrowing the power of the Holy Spirit—the impossibility borrowing obedience and faithfulness.

Dangers Don't Loose out

Jesus comes back. “I never new you.” 

Hence ever ready and preparedness.

Verse 13 says, “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”
