The people go from CHAINS to spiritual faith; from SPIRITUAL FAITH to courage; from COURAGE to liberty; from LIBERTY to abundance; from ABUNDANCE to selfishness; from SELFISHNESS to complacency(self satisfaction); from COMPLACENTCY to apathy (lack of interest); from APETHY to despondency; from DESPONDECY back again to BONDAGE.
Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34).
CONSIDER THE PROFIT AND THE LOSS!
CONSIDER THE LIVING GOD!
“For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; GOD HIMSELF that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. LOOK UNTO ME, and BE YE SAVED, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:18, 22). “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be SAVED” (John 3:17). “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES; for in them ye think ye have ETERNAL LIFE: and they are they which testify of ME” (John 5:39).
The Lord Jesus said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have it more ABUNDENTLY. And this is LIFE ETERNAL, that they might KNOW thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (John 10:10, 17:3).
HE REMAINS TRUE AND FAITHFUL TO HIS WORD!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
