RICH inner life


The LORD JESUS said:

John 6:40

King James Version

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.

What can the world give me, that I don't already have in JESUS?

What celebration, or festivity, can take the place of daily fellowship with the LORD?

It's a voluntary stepping back from the world, in order to dedicate life and work for JESUS.

And all these, for the GLORY of GOD alone.

It is ironic that the deeper the grief at a loved one's passing, the deeper the fellowship with CHRIST, too.

Only JESUS can heal such a heart.

Of course, I will never be able to grasp the grief GOD had in offering His beloved SON, as sacrifice, that believers may be saved.

Ephesians 1:7

King James Version

7 In whom we have redemption 

through his blood, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

according to the riches of his grace;

But how many remember that sacrifice?

How many really celebrate the true meaning of the LORD's birth?

Again, I will maintain, that unless, and until GOD makes you born again, you won't be able to understand His ways.

Scripture will remain elusive.

Only the HOLY SPIRIT can help us understand the LORD's will, ways, and WORD.

That's why JESUS asked we be born again.

John 3:3-7

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 

How can a man be born when he is old? 

can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, 

and be born?

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

We need the SPIRIT of GOD, to discern things.

1 Corinthians 2:14

King James Version

14 But the natural man receiveth not 

the things of the Spirit of God: 

for they are foolishness unto him: 

neither can he know them, 

because they are spiritually discerned.

A rich, inner life can only be possible, through SPIRIT.

He will teach us everything we need to know about JESUS.

He will make Scripture easy for us to understand.

In such a way that there is no debate, nor doubt.

There is only a fullness of understanding.

And a delight in obedience to GOD's commandments.

As well as excitement at what SPIRIT may teach you, each moment.

Had I not had that rich, inner life with JESUS, no way can I produce 67 blogs, hundreds of posts, and 24 books in the 39 months of my being born again.

GOD's timeline has become my timeline.

I await the return of JESUS for His faithful.

On the day we meet Him up in the air, and remain forever with Him.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

When JESUS is your heart, you delight in His promises.

In eternal life which He has promised you.

And the citizenship in heaven that awaits you.

How, then, can any worldly festivity fulfill my heart?

It always pales, in comparison to what JESUS offers.

Revelation 21:1-5

King James Version

21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: 

for the first heaven and the first earth 

were passed away; 

and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, 

new Jerusalem, 

coming down from God out of heaven, 

prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, 


the tabernacle of God is with men, 

and he will dwell with them,

 and they shall be his people, 

and God himself shall be with them, 

and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; 

and there shall be no more death, 

neither sorrow, 

nor crying, 

neither shall there be any more pain: 

for the former things are passed away.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, 


I make all things new. 

And he said unto me, 


for these words are true 

and faithful.
