The Best Life Is the love of Christ

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches
and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.

"To him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing
and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever." Hallelujah!



 

 Psalm 33:11-12

[Updated  NASB
The counsel of the LORD stands forever,
The plans of His heart from
generation to generation.

Blessed is the nation whose God is
the LORD,
The people whom He has chosen for
His own inheritance.

 Psalm 22:22-31

I will tell of Your name to my brethren;
In the midst of the assembly
I will praise You.

You who fear the LORD, praise Him;
(Note Malachi 3:16-17)
All you descendants of Jacob,
glorify Him,
And stand in awe of Him, all you
descendants of Israel.

For He has not despised nor abhorred
the affliction of the afflicted;
Nor has He hidden His face from him;
But when he cried to Him for help,
He heard.

From You comes my praise in the
great assembly;
I shall pay my vows before those
who fear Him.

The afflicted will eat and be satisfied;
Those who seek Him will praise the LORD.
Let your heart live forever!

All the ends of the earth will remember
and turn to the LORD,
And all the families of the nations will
worship before You.

For the kingdom is the LORD's
And He rules over nations.

All the prosperous of the earth will
eat and worship,
All those who go down to the dust
will bow before Him,
Even he who cannot keep his soul alive.

Posterity will serve Him;
It will be told of the Lord to the
coming  generation.

They will come and will declare
His righteousness
To a people who will be born,
that He has performed it.

 Isaiah 53:1

Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the LORD
been revealed?

St. John 3:16

[Updated  NASB]  Jesus said in our Bible

"For God so loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish,
but have eternal life.

St. John 3:8

[Updated  NASB]  Jesus said in our Bible
"The wind blows where it wishes and you hear
the sound of it, but do not know where it comes
from and where it is going; so  is everyone
who is  born of the Spirit."

 St. John 14:6

[Updated  NASB]  Jesus said in our Bible

Jesus said to him,
"I am the way, and the
truth, and the life; no one comes to the
Father but through Me.

 1 John 4:7-17

[Updated  NASB]

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is
from God; and everyone who loves is born of God
and knows God.

The one who does not love does not know God,
for God is love.

By this the love of God was manifested in us,
that God has sent His only begotten Son into
the world so that we might live through Him.

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that
He loved us and sent His Son to be the
propitiation for our sins.

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought
to love one another.

No one has seen God at any time; if we love one
another, God abides in us, and His love is
perfected in us.

By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us,
because He has given us of His Spirit.

We have seen and testify that the Father has
sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God,
God abides in him, and he in God.

We have come to know and have believed the love
which God has for us. God is love, and the one
who abides in love abides in God,
and God abides in him.

By this, love is perfected with us, so that we
may have confidence in the day of judgment;
because as He is, so also are we in this world.
 

 St. John 14:11-15

[Updated  NASB]  Jesus said in our Bible

"Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because
of the works themselves.


"Truly, Truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater *Works* than these he will do; because I go to the Father.

"Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be  glorified in the Son.

"If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

"If you love Me, you will keep
My commandments.

Psalm 23:1-6

[Updated  NASB]

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me besides quiet waters.

He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths
of righteousness
For His name's sake.

Even though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the
presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.

Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow
me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

St. Matthew 10:32

[Updated  NASB]  Jesus said in our Bible
"
Therefore everyone who confesses Me
before men, I will also confess him before My Father
who is in heaven.

Acts 10:34-44

[Updated  NASB]

Opening his mouth, Peter said:
"I most certainly understand now that God is not
one to show partiality,

but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right is welcome to Him.

"The word which He sent to the sons of Israel, preaching  peace through  Jesus Christ
(He is Lord of all)

you yourselves know the thing which took place through out all Judea, starting from Galilee, after the baptism which John proclaimed.

"You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who where
oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

"We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross.

"God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible,

not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.

And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead.

"Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins."

While Peter was still speaking these words,
the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were
listening to the message. 

St. Matthew 5:1-11

[Updated  NASB]  Jesus said in our Bible

 When Jesus saw the crowds,
He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down;
His disciples came to Him.

He opened His mouth and began to teach them,
saying,

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is
the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall
be comforted.

Blessed are the gentle, for they shall
inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for
righteousness, for they shall
be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall
receive mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall
see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall
be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who have been persecuted
for the sake of righteousness, for theirs
is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people insult you and
persecute you, and falsely say all kinds
of evil against you because of Me.
