  1. The Word of God endures forever.

    The First Letter of
    1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the elect who are sojourners of the
    Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
    2 according
    to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit,
    unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you
    and peace be multiplied.
    3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according
    to his great mercy begat us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of
    Jesus Christ from the dead,
    4 unto an inheritance incorruptible, and
    undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
    5 who by
    the power of God are guarded through faith unto a salvation ready to be
    revealed in the last time.
    6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, ye
    have been put to grief in manifold trials,
    7 that the proof of your faith,
    being more precious than gold that perisheth though it is proved by fire,
    may be found unto praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus
    8 whom not having seen ye love; on whom, though now ye see him
    not, yet believing, ye rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of
    9 receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
    10 Concerning which salvation the prophets sought and searched diligently,
    who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
    11 searching what
    time or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did
    point unto, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the
    glories that should follow them.
    12 To whom it was revealed, that not unto
    themselves, but unto you, did they minister these things, which now have
    been announced unto you through them that preached the gospel unto you
    by the Holy Spirit sent forth from heaven; which things angel desire to
    look into.
    Wherefore girding up the loins of your mind, be sober and set your hope
    perfectly on the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of
    Jesus Christ;
    14 as children of obedience, not fashioning yourselves
    according to your former lusts in the time of your ignorance:
    15 but like as
    he who called you is holy, be ye yourselves also holy in all manner of
    16 because it is written, Ye shall be holy; for I am holy. 17 And if ye
    call on him as Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to
    each man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear:
    18 knowing that
    ye were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from
    your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers;
    19 but with
    precious blood, as of a lamb without spot, even the blood of Christ:
    20 who
    was foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but was
    manifested at the end of times for your sake,
    21 who through him are
    believers in God, that raised him from the dead, and gave him glory; so that
    your faith and hope might be in God.
    22 Seeing ye have purified your souls
    in your obedience to the truth unto unfeigned love of the brethren, love
    one another from the heart fervently:
    23 having been begotten again, not of
    corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which
    liveth and abideth.
    24 For, All flesh is as grass, And all the glory thereof as the flower of grass.
    The grass withereth, and the flower falleth:
    25 But the word of the Lord
    abideth for ever. And this is the word of good tidings which was preached
    unto you.Be encouraged believers stay in the will of God.
  2. Amen
    Thank you for the word brother

    God bless
  3. For the glory of God alone its His word your welcome dear brpther and all who are truly His God bless stand strong.Love you all.
  4. Writing only a few months since, Mr. Spurgeon said: — "We live in
    perilous times; we are passing through a most eventful period; the
    Christian world is convulsed; there is a mighty upheaval of the old
    foundations of faith; a great over-hauling of old teaching. The Bible is made
    to speak today in an unknown tongue. Gospel teachings, the proclamation
    of which made men fear to sin and dread the thought of eternity, are being
    shelved Calvary is being robbed of its glory, sin of its horror, and the
    power of the Gospel weakened. There is no use in mincing matters; there
    are thousands of us in all denominations who believe that many ministers
    have seriously departed from the truths of the Gospel, and a sad decline of
    spiritual life is manifest in our churches.... The case is mournful. Certain
    ministers are making infidels. Avowed atheists are not a tenth as dangerous
    as those preachers who scatter doubt and stab at faith. A plain man told us
    the other day that two ministers had derided him, because he thought we
    should pray for rain.... Have these advanced thinkers filled their own
    chapels? Have they, after all, prospered through discarding the old
    methods? The places which the old Gospel filled, the new nonsense has
    emptied and will keep empty."
