Hebrews 10:31 - It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. -- Are you holding fast to Christ to the end?

The Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, - Galatians 1:3b-4
Revelation 3:21 says those who overcome, and conquer will receive the Crown of Life. Are you overcoming against the temptation that the devils hurls at you? And through the power of Your Spirit We can overcome, we will overcome, we must overcome!
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. - John 3:36 If you are outside of Christ today the wrath of the living God abides on you and as 1 John 3:8 make clear, you are a child of the devil. True salvation is not found in our works and performance but in the work and performance of another, Jesus Christ, the God man who came in the flesh. He lived the perfect life that we never could, He died the death under the wrath of God as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of those who believe. Flee to Christ, flee from the Wrath of God to Jesus Christ who is the City of Refuge, the only place of refuge is truly in Christ alone.
We ask Lord then you'd be pleased to continue to equip us for the battle. Arm us with jealous cares in thy sight to live, thy servants Lord prepare, a strict account to give. We bless your name Lord, we admit thine is the victory, the glory, the majesty. Now and Forever. Amen.
