There is no doubt the promises attached to this verse can 't be compared money or any material gain. Ignorance has a way of keeping you around your destiny but the Holy Spirit has a way of revealing it to you.

We have now the earnest of the Spirit : That is a down payment with payment in full to come at His return : From time to time Spirit of God is so manifestly wide open at times I believe that I am already in heaven with my Lord : If I see the down payment as so unspeakable and full of Glory : no wonder we need a glorified body to be IN the very presence of God for eternity : Oh !! Glory what a time such as this :

This scripture excites me but also causes me to pause......how important it is for us to draw close to the Holy Spirit who will give us great revelation of the things of God!


LARPEI TIMOTHY's comment on 2014-05-15 13:15:29:

Another infinite power of our creator.Do christians really thirst for such things? I am not sure of myself.God Help us crave and yearn for your devine promises.May we always Truly hunger and Thirst for things Above as stated by paul in his letters to the colossians in chapter 3.

God is wonderful indeed, i still cant tell why He loves us this much... no words can explain what awaits us home


Toni's comment on 2014-03-05 08:46:19:

This is only for a select group of people not the Sunday church goers or those who sit on a deacon board or play in the church choir and think that is salvation It s not for the fearful or the faithless or the liars or backbiters etc But this is for those who have died out to the world and surrendered all to God Those who call on the name of Jesus day and night The ones baptized by the Holy Ghost and the fire These are they who when they are tried and endure are found worthy to receive God s glory in their lives It pays to love God It pays to fear Him and to trust in His Word The Word of God is Jesus We can not even begin to comprehend what revelations and songs and prophecies and visions and wonderful works God has in store for those who love Him And who does Jesus says loves Him Those who keep His commandments Amen

Mimi's comment on 2013-11-25 01:01:02:

God is awesome. We have no words to describe him. One day no more pain, no more suffering, no more living in a cursed and sinful world. What a great time that will be. Thank you Father!


millicent's comment on 2013-11-18 23:53:38:

this Scripture encourages me to perseverance in life .that there is blessings at the end of the tunnel once I love God .so I dont need to give up now.


victoria's comment on 2013-11-14 06:23:26:

anything can happen for those who love the Lord .
God is full of surprises beyond our wildest dreams !
I know of a catholic woman who was very kind to someone . When the person died she left 5 houses to that catholic lady !Jesus also died! Just imagine what He has left us in his inheritance !


John k zulu's comment on 2013-09-19 12:29:07:

Chisomo Meya's comment on 2013-09-05 01:41:08:

Praise the living God, who was, who is and who is to come, may His name be praised forever and evermore. This verse is so beautiful, i just loves it, it increases my faith so much, it gives me so much courage,knowing that as i am a child of God, having been made rightous and being the righousness of God in Christ Jesus, i love God so much,as He has made it possible for me to love Him through His Holy Sprit whom He has given freely to me in my union with Lord Jesus Christ. This verse is so rich,full of hope. This verse gives me assurance,to know that there is more for me. Thank you.


Conrad chitibwi isaac JR's comment on 2013-08-12 07:52:23:

This scripture always it hits my mind,i always increase the love i have for God. This gives me an ***urance that my love for God is not in vein.


charity nyapokoto's comment on 2013-08-03 01:35:18:

This verse give me theg great honour to know that because i am born again ,i am chosen to see,to hear and to comprehend all what God has for me.the only one thing i have to do is to take the devine life , the gift of righteousness,the grace of God.all what is in God is given to me by his spirit.so this is only given to the born again children of God.those who are not born again can never comprehend what we have in christ jesus.this is hidden to the world.is only revealed to us the beloveth of God.pPraise God!!!!!!!!.


glen's comment on 2013-07-28 07:45:51:

this was said ti me in a church in 2001 (I think)
my eyes have been opened since april this year 2013. it broke my heart to see what was happening , so much so that i honestly cried out to god for help. i called a minister in the middle of the night because i hadnt been able to sleep for approx 2 weeks . what i saw made me physicaly sick (honeslty ) after praying to god I was able to rest & get some sleep. this is all new to me. ive even been reading the bible to understand better. all ill say is that things are going to get very bad. so if you a re reading this i ask you to collect non perishable food & probably water. have a bible handy I have jehovas witness one & a study guide. if anyone is hungry it would be good to have something for them to eat. oh , have a bible handy. good luck . im thinking of you. love, glen


Keisha Johnson's comment on 2013-07-26 11:36:13:

As I read this scripture it reminds me that my greater is coming and regardless of what it may look like, God promises says that God has a plan to prosper me and eyes have not seen nor ears have heard what God has in store for me. I just have to remain humble, activate my faith and wait on the Lord!!!!!


styles's comment on 2013-07-02 12:29:33:

I really love this scripture because we has individuals we cant look at people for their outward appears we must be spiritual at all time. For the spirit of carnality can creep in and make you beleive that all is well but God.God have the last say on your life. Prepare a table in the presence of your enemies.
