What is the SEAL of the HOLY SPIRIT?

 

I had no idea.

So I searched SCRIPTURE.

And here's what Scripture had to say:

Ephesians 1:13 

King James Version

13 In whom ye also trusted, 

after that ye heard 

the word of truth, 

the gospel of your salvation: 

in whom also after that ye believed, 

ye were sealed with that holy Spirit 

of promise,


Ephesians 4:30 (KJV)

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, 

whereby ye are sealed unto the day 

of redemption.


2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (KJV)

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you 

in Christ, 

and hath anointed us, 

is God;

22 Who hath also sealed us, 

and given the earnest 

of the Spirit in our hearts.


2 Corinthians 5:5 (KJV)

5 Now he that hath wrought us 

for the selfsame thing 

is God, 

who also hath given unto us 

the earnest of the Spirit.


John 6:27 (KJV)

27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, 

but for that meat which endureth 

unto everlasting life, 

which the Son of man 

shall give unto you: 

for him hath God the Father 

sealed.


Revelation 7:3-4 (KJV)

3 Saying, 

Hurt not the earth, 

neither the sea, 

nor the trees, 

till we have sealed 

the servants of our God 

in their foreheads.

4 And I heard the number 

of them which were sealed: 

and there were sealed an hundred 

and forty and four thousand 

of all the tribes 

of the children of Israel.


Revelation 9:4 (KJV)

4 And it was commanded them 

that they should not hurt 

the grass of the earth, 

neither any green thing, 

neither any tree; 

but only those men 

which have not 

the seal of God 

in their foreheads.


Revelation 14:1 (KJV)

14 And I looked, 

and, lo, 

a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, 

and with him an hundred forty 

and four thousand, 

having his Father's name written 

in their foreheads.


Revelation 22:4 (KJV)

4 And they shall see his face; 

and his name shall be 

in their foreheads.


Isaiah 42:1 (KJV)

42 Behold my servant, 

whom I uphold; 

mine elect, 

in whom my soul delighteth; 

I have put my spirit 

upon him

he shall bring forth 

judgment to the Gentiles.

What Did GOD Command PARENTS and CHILDREN to Do?

 

God is precise.

Nothing could be more precise than what He commanded parents and children to do, very early on in the Bible.

What GOD commands PARENTS to do:

Deuteronomy 6:5-7 

King James Version

5 And thou shalt love 

the Lord thy God 

with all thine heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy might.

6 And these words, 

which I command thee 

this day, 

shall be in thine heart:

7 And thou shalt teach them diligently 

unto thy children, 

and shalt talk of them 

when thou sittest in thine house, 

and when thou walkest by the way, 

and when thou liest down, 

and when thou risest up.


What GOD commands CHILDREN to do:

Exodus 20:12 

King James Version

12 Honour thy father 

and thy mother: 

that thy days may be long upon the land 

which the Lord thy God 

giveth thee.

What Does FEAR the LORD Really Mean?

 

What does it really mean when the Bible says, "Fear the Lord"?

As always, Scripture is precise, and you will understand clearly through these verses:

Proverbs 8:13

for this is the whole duty 

of man.

How to WALK with JESUS

 

We all know there is a great urgency to live right by God.

The Lord JESUS showed us how.

Allow me to share with you a MAGNIFICENT find today -- a chapter in Scripture that can be a clear, and comforting guidepost, on how we are to conduct ourselves, and become pleasing in the eyes of God.

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.

3 For ye are dead, 

and your life is hid with Christ 

in God.

4 When Christ, 

who is our life, 

shall appear, 

then shall ye also appear 

with him 

in glory.

5 Mortify therefore 

your members 

which are 

upon the earth

fornication, 

uncleanness, 

inordinate affection, 

evil concupiscence, 

and covetousness, 

which is idolatry:

6 For which things' sake 

the wrath of God cometh 

on the children of disobedience:

7 In the which ye also walked 

some time, 

when ye lived in them.

8 But now ye also 

put off all these; 

anger, 

wrath, 

malice, 

blasphemy, 

filthy communication

 out of your mouth.

9 Lie not one to another, 

seeing that ye have put off 

the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on 

the new man, 

which is renewed in knowledge 

after the image 

of him that created him:

11 Where there is neither Greek 

nor Jew, 

circumcision nor uncircumcision, 

Barbarian, 

Scythian, 

bond nor free: 

but Christ is all, 

and in all.

12 Put on therefore, 

as the elect of God, 

holy and beloved, 

bowels of mercies

kindness, 

humbleness of mind, 

meekness, 

longsuffering;

13 Forbearing one another, 

and forgiving one another

if any man have a quarrel against any: 

even as Christ forgave you, 

so also do ye.

14 And above all these things 

put on charity

which is the bond of perfectness.

15 And let the peace of God 

rule in your hearts

to the which also ye are called 

in one body; 

and be ye thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ 

dwell in you richly 

in all wisdom

teaching and admonishing one another 

in psalms and hymns 

and spiritual songs, 

singing with grace in your hearts 

to the Lord.

17 And whatsoever ye do 

in word or deed, 

do all in the name 

of the Lord Jesus

giving thanks to God 

and the Father 

by him.

18 Wives, 

submit yourselves 

unto your own husbands

as it is fit in the Lord.

19 Husbands, 

love your wives

and be not bitter against them.

20 Children, 

obey your parents 

in all things

for this is well pleasing 

unto the Lord.

21 Fathers, 

provoke not your children to anger

lest they be discouraged.

22 Servants, 

obey in all things your masters 

according to the flesh

not with eyeservice, 

as menpleasers; 

but in singleness of heart, 

fearing God;

23 And whatsoever ye do, 

do it heartily, 

as to the Lord, 

and not unto men;

24 Knowing that 

of the Lord 

ye shall receive the reward 

of the inheritance: 

for ye serve 

the Lord Christ.

25 But he that doeth wrong 

shall receive 

for the wrong 

which he hath done: 

and there is no respect 

of persons.

Colossians 3 

King James Version


In summary:

1. Seek those things which are above -- CHRIST.

2. Mortify evils of the flesh and idolatry.

3. Put off anger, malice, blasphemy.

4. Forgive one another.

5. Put on charity.

6. Let the peace of God rule in your hearts.

7. Be thankful.

8. Let the word of Christ dwell in you.

9. Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus.

10. Wives, submit to your husbands.

11. Husbands, love your wives.

12. Children, obey your parents.

13. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger.

14. Servants, obey your masters.

15. Fear God.

16. Do everything heartily, as to the Lord.

The MAGNIFICENCE of GOD

 

Do we really know how magnificent God is?

Scripture tells us what we need to know.

7 He stretcheth out the north 

over the empty place, 

and hangeth the earth 

upon nothing.

8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; 

and the cloud is not rent under them.

9 He holdeth back the face 

of his throne, 

and spreadeth his cloud 

upon it.

10 He hath compassed the waters 

with bounds, 

until the day and night 

come to an end.

11 The pillars of heaven tremble 

and are astonished 

at his reproof.

12 He divideth the sea with his power, 

and by his understanding 

he smiteth through the proud.

13 By his spirit he hath garnished 

the heavens; 

his hand hath formed 

the crooked serpent.

14 Lo, these are 

parts of his ways: 

but how little a portion 

is heard of him? 

but the thunder of his power 

who can understand?

Job 26:7-14 

King James Version


3 Great is the LORD, 

and greatly to be praised; 

and his greatness is unsearchable.

4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, 

and shall declare thy mighty acts.

5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, 

and of thy wondrous works.

Psalm 145:3-5 

King James Version


12 He hath made the earth 

by his power, 

he hath established the world 

by his wisdom, 

and hath stretched out the heavens 

by his discretion.

13 When he uttereth his voice, 

there is a multitude of waters 

in the heavens, 

and he causeth the vapours to ascend 

from the ends of the earth; 

he maketh lightnings with rain, 

and bringeth forth the wind 

out of his treasures.

Jeremiah 10:12-13 

King James Version


4 He telleth the number of the stars; 

he calleth them all by their names.

5 Great is our Lord, 

and of great power: 

his understanding is infinite.

Psalm 147:4-5 

King James Version


13 Let every soul be subject 

unto the higher powers. 

For there is no power but of God: 

the powers that be 

are ordained of God.

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, 

resisteth the ordinance of God: 

and they that resist 

shall receive to themselves damnation.

Romans 13:1-2 

King James Version

Why Did JESUS Love Sinners?

17 When Jesus heard it, 

he saith unto them, 

They that are whole 

have no need of the physician, 

but they that are sick: 

I came not to call 

the righteous, 

but sinners to repentance.

Mark 2:15-17 

King James Version


 Scripture says we are all sinners.

But why does JESUS love us, still?

Scripture explains why.

16 For God so loved 

the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him 

should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 

King James Version


29 My Father, 

which gave them me, 

is greater than all; 

and no man is able to pluck them 

out of my Father's hand.

John 10:29 

King James Version


37 All that the Father giveth me 

shall come to me; 

and him that cometh to me 

I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the Father's will 

which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me 

I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again 

at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up 

at the last day.

John 6:37-40 

King James Version


15 Then drew near unto him 

all the publicans and sinners 

for to hear him.

2 And the Pharisees 

and scribes murmured, saying, 

This man receiveth sinners, 

and eateth with them.

3 And he spake this parable 

unto them, saying,

4 What man of you, 

having an hundred sheep, 

if he lose one of them, 

doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, 

and go after that which is lost, 

until he find it?

5 And when he hath found it, 

he layeth it on his shoulders, 

rejoicing.

6 And when he cometh home, 

he calleth together his friends 

and neighbours, 

saying unto them, 

Rejoice with me; 

for I have found my sheep 

which was lost.

7 I say unto you, 

that likewise joy shall be in heaven 

over one sinner that repenteth, 

more than over ninety and nine just persons, 

which need no repentance.

Luke 15:1-7 

King James Version


23 For the wages of sin is death; 

but the gift of God 

is eternal life 

through Jesus Christ 

our Lord.

Romans 6:23 

King James Version


8 But God commendeth his love toward us, 

in that, 

while we were yet sinners, 

Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8 

King James Version


2 And he is the propitiation 

for our sins: 

and not for ours only, 

but also for the sins 

of the whole world.

1 John 2:2 

King James Version


15 Ye judge after the flesh; 

I judge no man.

16 And yet if I judge, 

my judgment is true: 

for I am not alone, 

but I and the Father 

that sent me.

The POWER of GOD Over Nations

 


How much do you know of GOD's power over nations, kings, rulers, and over every being He created?

Let Scripture tell you, in no uncertain terms.

1 In the beginning 

God created the heaven 

and the earth.

Genesis 1:1 

King James Version 


26 And God said, 

Let us make man in our image, 

after our likeness

and let them have dominion 

over the fish of the sea, 

and over the fowl of the air, 

and over the cattle, 

and over all the earth, 

and over every creeping thing 

that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man 

in his own image, 

in the image of God 

created he him; 

male and female 

created he them.

28 And God blessed them, 

and God said unto them, 

Be fruitful, 

and multiply, 

and replenish the earth, 

and subdue it

and have dominion over the fish 

of the sea, 

and over the fowl 

of the air, 

and over every living thing 

that moveth upon the earth.

Genesis 1:26-28 

King James Version 


13 Let every soul be subject unto 

the higher powers. 

For there is no power 

but of God: 

the powers that be 

are ordained of God.

Romans 13:1 

King James Version


21 Have ye not known? 

have ye not heard? 

hath it not been told you 

from the beginning? 

have ye not understood 

from the foundations 

of the earth?

22 It is he that sitteth 

upon the circle of the earth

and the inhabitants thereof 

are as grasshoppers; 

that stretcheth out the heavens 

as a curtain, 

and spreadeth them out as a tent 

to dwell in:

23 That bringeth the princes 

to nothing; 

he maketh the judges of the earth 

as vanity.

24 Yea, they shall not be planted; 

yea, they shall not be sown: 

yea, their stock shall not take root 

in the earth

and he shall also blow upon them, 

and they shall wither, 

and the whirlwind shall take them away 

as stubble.

Isaiah 40:21-24 

King James Version 


15 Behold, 

the nations are as a drop of a bucket, 

and are counted as the small dust 

of the balance

behold, 

he taketh up the isles 

as a very little thing.

Isaiah 40:15 

King James Version


24 The earth is the Lord's, 

and the fulness thereof; 

the world, 

and they that dwell 

therein.

Psalm 24:1 

King James Version 


28 For the kingdom is the Lord's: 

and he is the governor 

among the nations.

Psalm 22:28 

King James Version 


17 All nations before him 

are as nothing; 

and they are counted to him 

less than nothing, 

and vanity.

Isaiah 40:17 

King James Version


18 And Jesus came 

and spake unto them, 

saying, 

All power is given unto me 

in heaven 

and in earth.

Matthew 28:18 

King James Version 


12 With the ancient is wisdom; 

and in length of days understanding.

13 With him is wisdom and strength, 

he hath counsel and understanding.

14 Behold, 

he breaketh down, 

and it cannot be built again: 

he shutteth up a man, 

and there can be 

no opening.

15 Behold, 

he withholdeth the waters, 

and they dry up: 

also he sendeth them out, 

and they overturn the earth.

16 With him 

is strength and wisdom: 

the deceived 

and the deceiver 

are his.

17 He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, 

and maketh the judges fools.

18 He looseth the bond of kings, 

and girdeth their loins 

with a girdle.

19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, 

and overthroweth the mighty.

20 He removeth away 

the speech of the trusty, 

and taketh away 

the understanding of the aged.

21 He poureth contempt upon princes, 

and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.

22 He discovereth deep things out of darkness, 

and bringeth out to light 

the shadow of death.

23 He increaseth the nations, 

and destroyeth them: 

he enlargeth the nations, 

and straiteneth them 

again.

24 He taketh away the heart 

of the chief of the people of the earth, 

and causeth them to wander in a wilderness 

where there is no way.

25 They grope in the dark 

without light, 

and he maketh them to stagger 

like a drunken man.

Job 12:12-25 

King James Version


21 The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, 

as the rivers of water: 

he turneth it whithersoever he will.

Proverbs 21:1 

King James Version


14 If my people, 

which are called by my name, 

shall humble themselves, 

and pray, 

and seek my face, 

and turn from their wicked ways; 

then will I hear from heaven, 

and will forgive their sin, 

and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 

King James Version 


17 This matter is by the decree 

of the watchers, 

and the demand by the word 

of the holy ones: 

to the intent that the living may know 

that the most High ruleth 

in the kingdom of men, 

and giveth it 

to whomsoever he will, 

and setteth up over it 

the basest of men.

and princes decree justice.

to generation.

King James Version


19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power 

to us-ward who believe, 

according to the working of his mighty power,

20 Which he wrought in Christ, 

when he raised him from the dead, 

and set him at his own right hand 

in the heavenly places,

21 Far above all principality, 

and power, 

and might, 

and dominion, 

and every name that is named, 

not only in this world, 

but also in that which is to come:

22 And hath put all things 

under his feet, 

and gave him to be the head 

over all things 

to the church,

23 Which is his body, 

the fulness of him that filleth 

all in all.

Ephesians 1:19-23 

King James Version 


21 There are many devices 

in a man's heart; 

nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, 

that shall stand.

Proverbs 19:21 

King James Version


18 O thou king, 

the most high God 

gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father 

a kingdom, 

and majesty, 

and glory, 

and honour:

19 And for the majesty that he gave him, 

all people, 

nations, 

and languages, 

trembled and feared 

before him: 

whom he would he slew; 

and whom he would he kept alive; 

and whom he would he set up; 

and whom he would he put down.

20 But when his heart 

was lifted up, 

and his mind hardened in pride, 

he was deposed from his kingly throne, 

and they took his glory from him:

21 And he was driven from the sons of men; 

and his heart was made like the beasts, 

and his dwelling was with the wild asses: 

they fed him with grass 

like oxen, 

and his body was wet 

with the dew of heaven; 

till he knew that the most high God ruled 

in the kingdom of men

and that he appointeth over it 

whomsoever he will.

Daniel 5:18-21 

King James Version


9 Who knoweth not in all these 

that the hand of the Lord 

hath wrought this?

10 In whose hand 

is the soul of every living thing, 

and the breath of all mankind.

Job 12:9-10 

King James Version


2 I am the Lord thy God, 

which have brought thee 

out of the land of Egypt, 

out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have 

no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee 

any graven image, 

or any likeness of any thing 

that is in heaven above, 

or that is in the earth beneath, 

or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, 

nor serve them: 

for I the Lord thy God 

am a jealous God, 

visiting the iniquity of the fathers 

upon the children unto the third 

and fourth generation 

of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them 

that love me, 

and keep my commandments.

Exodus 20:2-6 

King James Version 


15 Love not the world, 

neither the things that are in the world

If any man love the world, 

the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, 

the lust of the flesh, 

and the lust of the eyes, 

and the pride of life, 

is not of the Father, 

but is of the world.

1 John 2:15-16 

King James Version 


10 Be wise now therefore, 

O ye kings: 

be instructed, 

ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear, 

and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, 

lest he be angry, 

and ye perish from the way, 

when his wrath is kindled but a little. 

Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalm 2:10-12 

King James Version
