God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for Him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

God blesses those who are humble, for they will be satisfied.

God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.

God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.

God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are My followers.

Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.
Matthew 5:3-12 (NLT)


First, I want to remind you that in the last days there will come scoffers who will do every wrong they can think of and laugh at the truth. This will be their line of argument: “So Jesus promised to come back, did He? Then where is He? He’ll never come! Why, as far back as anyone can remember, everything has remained exactly as it was since the first day of creation.”
II Peter 3:3-4 (TLB)

Dearly loved friends, don’t always believe everything you hear just because someone says it is a message from God: test it first to see if it really is. For there are many false teachers around, and the way to find out if their message is from The Holy Spirit is to ask: Does it really agree that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, actually became man with a human body? If so, then the message is from God. If not, the message is not from God but from one who is against Christ, like the “antichrist” you have heard about who is going to come, and his attitude of enmity against Christ is already abroad in the world.
I John 4:1-3 (TLB)


He told us how an angel had appeared to him and told him to send messengers to Joppa to find Simon Peter! ‘He will tell you how you and your household can be saved!’ the angel told him.
Acts 11:13-14 (TLB)

They replied, “Believe on The Lord Jesus and you will be saved, and your entire household.” Then they told him and all his household the Good News from The Lord.
Acts 16:31-32 (TLB)

You can be very sure the evil man will not go unpunished forever. And you can also be very sure God will rescue the children of the Godly.
Proverbs 11:21 (TLB)


Jesus replied, “Marriage is for people here on earth. But in the age to come, those worthy of being raised from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage. And they will never die again. In this respect they will be like angels. They are children of God and children of the resurrection.”
Luke 20:34-36 (NLT)


When Jesus and His disciples came to Capernaum, the collectors of the Temple tax came to Peter and asked, “Does your teacher pay the Temple tax? “Of course,” Peter answered.

When Peter went into the house, Jesus spoke up first, “Simon, what is your opinion? Who pays duties or taxes to the kings of this world? The citizens of the country or the foreigners?” “The foreigners,” answered Peter.

“Well, then,” replied Jesus, “that means that the citizens don’t have to pay. But we don’t want to offend these people. So go to the lake and drop in a line. Pull up the first fish you hook, and in its mouth you will find a coin worth enough for My Temple tax and yours. Take it and pay them our taxes.”
Matthew 17:24-27 (GNT)

“Teacher,” these spies said, “we know you tell the truth no matter what! You aren’t influenced by the opinions and desires of men, but sincerely teach the ways of God. Now tell us, is it right to pay taxes to Rome, or not?” Jesus saw their trick and said, “Show Me a coin and I’ll tell you”.

When they handed it to Him He asked, “Whose picture and title is this on the coin?” They replied, “The emperor’s.” “All right,” He said, “if it is his, give it to him. But everything that belongs to God must be given to God!” And they scratched their heads in bafflement at His reply.
Mark 12:14-17 (TLB)


And I shall send forth My angels with the sound of a Mighty Trumpet blast, and they shall gather my chosen ones from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven.
Matthew 24:31 (TLB)


Hallelujah! Yes, praise The Lord!

Praise Him in His Temple and in the heavens He made with Mighty Power. Praise Him for His Mighty Works. Praise His unequaled Greatness. Praise Him with the trumpet and with lute and harp. Praise Him with the drums and dancing. Praise Him with stringed instruments and horns. Praise Him with the cymbals, yes, loud clanging cymbals.

Let everything alive give praises to The Lord! You praise Him!


Psalms 150:1-6 (TLB)


And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.
Genesis 12:2 (ESV)

Make your motions and cast your votes, but God has the final say.
Proverbs 16:33 (MSG)


Everyone should take care of all their own people. Most important, they should take care of their own family. If they do not do that, then they do not accept what we believe. They are worse than someone who does not even believe in God.
I Timothy 5:8 (ERV)

Make your motions and cast your votes, but God has the final say.
Proverbs 16:33 (MSG)
