“Happy They That Trust In Jesus”

 

HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy people!
Happy, though despised and poor.

Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.

Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.

As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
Thus protected,
All their foes they boldly dare.

  1. Amen, this I have found to be so very true all these many years.
    The Lord’s words as found in Psalm 23: Psa 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    Psa 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    Psa 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    Psa 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    Psa 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Psa 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
    Speak His TRUTH forever more!
    Thank you for posting this lovely poem…….
    The Lord bless you!

  2. Thank you , Salvation is one of the most important Truths that can be shared today and Jesus tells us we are to Ask, Seek and Knock so we can understand His Truth and with us being in the Generation of the End Times we are to also look for the Signs that He told us about too (1Thessalonians 5 :2 -6 – Mathew 24 – Mark 13 – Luke 21:6-38 – Daniel 9 – 11 – 12- Revelation 2:9-11 – 3:10 KJV)

    I would very much value your thoughts in regard to what has been shared in this Message although you will find that with all the Scriptures included to confirm it’s Truth it does have a lot of wordage but when we know and understand God’s Truth it sets us Free to be all He wants us to be.

    Below the Introduction…… is God’s Wonderful Plan of Salvation as Confirmed by Scripture, it is very important for our Eternal Hope, Spiritual Peace and Inner Joy.
    If your not using the KJV where the Scriptures are Translated from the Original Hebrew and Greek Manuscripts, you may find it helpful to also read in context the Scriptures that are in your own Bible Translation.

    As shown in some of the Modern Translations there are differences which I will be sharing more about in the Conclusion below and in future Posts and also what to look for so you can recognize Cults and all other False Teacher’s deception too. I was involved in a Ministry to Ex -Cult Members and I felt much Compassion for them but also for those still trapped in Cults or deceived by other False Teachers.

    Introduction………

    We can be assured by the Confirmation of Scripture that Salvation is a Free Gift given to us by God’s Mercy and Grace (John3:16-18KJV) and our Heart Repentance shows that we have Faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour who Redeems us from Eternal Punishment and in Him we will be cleansed from all Unrighteousness and made Spotless (1John1:6-9- Daniel 12:10 KJV) which we will than show as we walk according to the Spirit and not our Carnal Flesh (Romans8:1-4 KJV)

    God tells us that not one of us will be lost when He knows us as His own, He Preserves our Soul (Psalm 97:9-11KJV) and when we ask He gives us Spiritually all we need and when we need it and also provides for our other needs including Healing and sometimes this is Miraculously or through His other tools such as Medicine and Caring Doctors who have Integrity, He gives them knowledge to Help us and He also makes available safe and Healing Natural resources that were Created by Him too. All good things come from God and Healing is very Good.

    We Give our Heartfelt Thanks to our God of Love and we Praise and Glorify Him as we show His Love in what we say and do. We put Him first No one else or anything that He has Created for us to enjoy including what Worldly Mankind propagates as more important than Him which is Spiritual Adultery.

    God’s Wonderful Plan of Salvation

    God tells us to put our Carnal flesh to death…….

    Romans 8:12-15 Therefore Brethren we are debtors not to the flesh to live after the flesh ye shall die but if by the Spirit ye do mortify the deeds of the body ye shall Live because as many are led by the Spirit of God they are Sons of God. (KJV )

    2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises dearly beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God. (KJV )

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ who is your Life appears then you also will appear with Him in Glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth: fornacation, uncleaness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence and covetousness which is idolatry. For which things sake the wrath of God is cometh on the Children of disobedience. (KJV )

    Galatians5: 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have Crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts if we live in the Spirit let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory provoking one another envying one another. (KJV )

    1John 3:2-4 Beloved now are we the sons of God and it doth not yet appear what we shall be but we know that when He shall appear we shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is. And every Man that hath this Hope in Him, Purifieth himself even as He is Pure.(KJV )

    1Peter 1:21-23 Who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead and gave Him Glory that your Faith and Hope might be in God. Seeing ye have Purified your Souls in obeying the Truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned Love of the Brethren, see that ye Love one another with a Pure Heart fervently Being Born Again not of Corruptible Seed, but of Incorruptible by the Word of God (John1KJV) which Liveth and Abideth for ever.(KJV )

    1Peter1:14-16 As Obedient Children not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance. But as He which hath called you is Holy so be ye Holy in all manner of Conversation because it is written; Be ye Holy for I am Holy.(KJV)

    2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a Great House there are not only Vessels of gold and of silver but also of wood and of earth and some to honour and some to dishonour. If a Man therefore purge himself from these(Romans 8:12-15KJV ) he shall be a vessel unto Honour, Sanctified and meet for the Master’s use and Prepared unto every Good Work.(KJV )

    God tells us that we are to Aim to be Perfected in His Love…….

    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect. (KJV)

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the Principles of the Doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto Perfection not laying again the foundation of Repentance from dead works and of Faith toward God. (KJV )

    Philippians 3:14-16 I press toward the Mark for the Prize of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore as many as be Perfect be thus minded and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, where to we have already attained let us walk by the same rule let us Mind the same thing.(KJV )

    2Timothy 3:17 That the Man of God may be Perfect throughly furnished unto all Good Works. (KJV )

    1John 4:16-19 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of Judgment because as He is so are we in this World. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him because He first Loved us. (KJV)

    1John 2:4-6 He that saith I know Him and keepeth not His Commandments is a liar and the Truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His Word in him verily is the Love of God Perfected hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he bideth in Him ought himself also so to Walk even as He Walked.(KJV )

    Colossians1:27-29 To whom God would make known what is the Riches of the Glory of this Mystery among the Gentiles which is Christ in you the Hope of Glory whom we Preach warning every Man and teaching every Man in all Wisdom that we may present every Man Perfect in Christ Jesus where unto I also labour, striving according to His Working which worketh in me Mightily. (KJV)

    2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally Brethren farewell be Perfect, be of good Comfort, be of one Mind, Live in Peace and The God of Love and Peace shall be with you. (KJV)

    The Apostle Paul did say at one time that he hadn’t been fully Perfected but that he would put the past behind (Philippians 3:12-14KJV) and Aim to be and before he died he said that he would receive the Crown of Righteousness showing he was Perfected and did not Sin. This was the same as some others were in the Church at that time which is confirmed in Scripture they had not died either. (2 Timothy 4:7-8KJV) and we can also be Perfected in Love and not Sin before we die and we will have no fear of punishment as we long for Jesus’ Return(1John 4:16-19KJV)

    God tells us we will No Longer Sin when we are Born Again …….

    1John 3:1-11( 9 ) Whosoever is Born of God doth not commit Sin because His Seed remaineth in him and he Cannot Sin because he is Born of God.(KJV)

    1John 5:18-20 We know that whosoever is Born of God Sineth not but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself and the wicked one toucheth him not. (KJV)

    1John 3: 1-11( 6-7) Whosoever abideth in Him Sinneth not, whosoever Sinneth hath not seen Him neither known Him. Little Children let No Man deceive you, he that doeth Righteousness is Righteous even as He is Righteous.(KJV)

    1John 2:28-29 And now little Children abide in Him that when He shall appear we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If ye know that He is Righteous ye know that every one that doeth Righteousness is Born of Him.(KJV )

    John 8:34-36 Jesus answered them; “ Verily, Verily I say unto you whosoever committeth Sin is the servant of Sin and the servant abideth not in the house forever but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you Free you shall be Free ye shall be Free indeed.(KJV)

    Romans 6:18-20 Being then made free from Sin ye became the Servants of Righteousness. (KJV)

    Romans 6:6- 7 Knowing this that our old Man is Crucified with Him that the body of Sin might be destroyed that henceforth we should not serve Sin because he that is dead is Freed from Sin. (KJV)

    Romans 6:11 Likewise Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto Sin but Alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.(KJV)

    Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no Condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who Walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. (KJV)

    Romans 8: 4 That the Righteousness of the Law might be fulfilled in us who Walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.(KJV)

    1Peter2:24 Who His own self bare our Sins in His own body on the tree that we being dead to Sins should Live unto Righteousness by whose stripes ye were healed. (KJV)

    Ephesians 4:23-24 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind And that ye put on the New Man which after God is created in Righteousness and True Holiness. (KJV)

    Luke 6:45-46 A Good Man out of the Good Treasure of his Heart bringeth forth that which is Good and an evil Man out of the evil treasure of his Heart bringeth forth that which is evil for of the Abundance of the Heart his mouth speaketh. (KJV)

    Romans 6:5-7 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death we shall be also in the Likeness of His Resurrection. Knowing this that our old Man is Crucified with Him that the body of Sin might be destroyed that henceforth we should not serve Sin. For he that is dead is Freed from Sin. (KJV)

    Romans 6:22-23 But now being made Free from Sin and become Servants to God, ye have your Fruit unto Holiness and the end Everlasting Life. For the wages of Sin is death but the Gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord.(KJV)
    Romans 6:1- 2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in Sin that Grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we that are dead to Sin live any longer therein? (KJV)

    2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises dearly Beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God. (KJV)

    1Peter 1:21-23 Being Born again not of corruptible seed but of Incorruptible by the Word of God which Liveth and Abideth for Ever. (KJV)

    1John 2:4 He that saith I know Him and keepeth not His Commandments is a liar and the Truth is not in him.(KJV)

    John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not Sinners but if any Man be a
    Titus 2:13-15 Looking for that blessed Hope and the Glorious appearing of The Great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ who gave Himself for us that He might Redeem us from all Iniquity and Purify unto Himself a peculiar people Zealous of Good Works. These things Speak and Exhort and Rebuke with all Authority. Let no Man despise thee.(KJV)

    Daniel 12:10 Many shall be Purified and made White and Tried but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall Understand but the Wise shall Understand.(KJV)

    Conclusion…….

    By their Teaching it has been shown to be True with the confirmation of Scripture that some Theologians, Evangelists and Pastors and so most of the Christians in their Congregations or those who also accept their Teaching when shared through the Media or in their books, do not fully know or understand God’s Plan of Salvation in Scripture which is confirmed in the Old and New Testament and when read in Context is very clear.

    They may be believing in their own understanding or what they were taught in error instead of asking for God’s Wisdom which none of us were Born with.(Proverbs 4:7 – Proverbs 2:6-7- James 1:5-6 KJV)Jesus tells us to Ask, Seek and Knock and He is our only Spiritual Teacher(Matthew 23:8-10KJV) who Leads us into all Truth by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.(1Corinthians2:9-16-John 16:13-15 – 1John 2:26-28- Psalm 32:8KJV)

    They may also not know that Scripture is never to be of a Private Interpretation but that we are to be seeking God’s Truth revealed by The Holy Spirit to us as He is Empowered to do and Confirmed in the Scriptures. They may be using some of the Modern Translations that have unintentional error, although some Translators belonging to Cults or who are False Teachers and seeking to deceive Believers or to confirm their own fleshy beliefs, have deliberately taken out of Scripture parts of God’s Truth that contradict what they wrongly believe and also added error to His inspired Words.(2Timothy 3:17KJV)

    I’m sure like me when I discovered the differences and not just in Cult Translations you will not only be surprised but amazed that they could alter God’s inspired Words as they have done by taking away from it and adding to it but God keeps His Word Pure and His Truth will always be shown and confirmed, it can’t be deleted.

    But Thankfully False Teachers including those in Cults find they can’t blot out God’s Truth in His Inspired Words permanently even though they seek to do this by continually adding to and taking away from the Scriptures in their new Translations and also when their teaching their Cult Members or their followers. They do this because God’s Truth in Scripture confirms without doubt that their teaching is in error and it will always be because what they Teach to deceive and what many of them also believe has no Inspired Godly Foundation and will be shown to be so.

    This is why it is important for us to continue to Pray for Cult Members and those who have been deceived by False teachers so their Spiritual eyes will be opened and they will recognize deception and be rescued but it will always be their choice to Repent and put Right the wrong they have shared and done or they will be made accountable now and Eternally (Revelation:18-19KJV)and this warning is in reference to any Scripture that is changed or added to in all the other Books of the Old and New Testament not just in the Book of Revelation as it is called today, all Scripture has Prophesy, the Names of the Books were added later.

    We will show we have God’s Salvation and that we will be Eternally in Heaven not Hell by our Faith in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and this is confirmed by our Love and our Obedience to Him in all things (1John3KJV) we will reject evil and seek to do Faithfully and Willingly His Good Works which He has Ordained for us to do (Ephesians2:10KJV)through The Holy Spirit’s Empowering,

    We know we are not saved by doing our own works motivated by our Carnal flesh. Although we are told to Work out our Salvation (Philippians 2:12-14KJV) it does not mean that we can earn it but we will show in Words and Actions that we have it. (Matthew25:31-45KJV)

    With God knowing by His Foreknowledge (2Timothy 2:19-21KJV) all those who are His from Eternity and also those who will reject Him, He knows all things and nothing is hidden from Him. He knew us before we were Conceived and when we would be Born, He knows what we are thinking right now and what we will do and say next.

    Our Abba Father knows our Hearts and that we will Repent showing we Believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and this is why He chooses us to than be conformed into the image of Jesus (Romans 8:29KJV) and this is before we die not after. We will than show by our Words and Actions that we are Perfected in His Love and we will walk as Jesus walked on this Earth, Holy and Righteous, how Beautiful are the Feet of them that bring Good News.

    All this confirms that God our Abba Father also knows we won’t reject Jesus in our Heart which is the unforgivable Sin because it is blaspheming the Holy Spirit, they are calling Him a liar, He witnesses to us of Jesus’ reality and shares His Truth with us as it is confirmed by God’s inspired Words in Scripture (John16:13-15 -1John 2:26-28KJV)
    But how can anyone be brought back to Repentance (Hebrews6KJV) when they reject in their Heart Jesus who is our Advocate and our only Mediator (1Timothy 2:5KJV) and than knowing choose to continue to Sin without shame.

    But our Abba Father would not have Chosen us to be Conformed into the Image of Jesus The Living Word, who is One Spiritually with Him and The Holy Ghost in The Godhead or Trinity as They are called today (1John5:7KJV) if He knew we would reject Jesus and fall away as some do even after hearing His Truth as Confirmed in Scripture and having Faith in and partaking in Spiritual gifts such as Prophecy, Knowledge, Speaking in Tongues, Healing etc (Hebrews6KJV)

    But all these were done and more without (1Corinthians13KJV) God’s Perfect Love, they remained Childish and so with not being Born Again and with not having the Mind of Christ, they depended on their own Worldly understanding motivated by their Carnal Flesh which is about all about their own fleshy Self-gratification and not empowered by His Perfect Love.

    God tells us in (1Jonn1KJV) that we are calling Him a Liar if we say that we don’t Sin which when read in Context and with Spiritual understanding also means that we believe we don’t need His free gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus either, as claimed by Atheists and of course Pagans.

    But than if we say we will continue to Sin, than we are also calling God a Liar and it shows we are still in darkness.(1Jonn1:5-7KJV) and not Born Again and Perfected in His Love (1John3KJV) after putting our Carnal flesh to death through The Holy Spirit’s Empowering as we chose to walk in His Fruit. (Romans 8:1(12-15)KJV)

    The Apostle Paul (Romans7KJV) called himself wretched because he continued to Sin although not wanting to, he didn’t say it was OK to continue to Sin but was sharing that he did and that it grieved him but he also knew that Jesus would Set him Free from the Slavery of Sin (John 8:34-36 KJV) and he shared how to do this (Romans8 -Romans6 KJV) in the Scriptures shared in God’s Plan of Salvation above and also in other Scriptures.

    Satan who comes as an Angel of light to deceive and hurt us, has the right because of the fall to put us to the Test which he did with Jesus(Matthew4:1-10KJV) Abraham, Job, Paul, Peter etc, his intent is to get us to Worship and glorify him instead of God and he will temp us and we need to be on guard not to fall into Sin before we are Born Again but if we do Sin and have Heart Repentance, Jesus who is our Advocate will intercede for us and we will be forgiven.(1Jonn 2:1-6KJV)

    God tells us that not One of us that He knows as His own will be lost Eternally, He preserves our Soul and gives us what is needed (Psalm 97:9-11-Psalm 107: 8-9KJV) according to His Good will for us (1Corinthians 2:9-16 KJV) in Christ Jesus.
    Having put our own Carnal flesh to death (Luke 6:39-42 KJV) than when needed we are to warn in Love and for Love(James 5:19-20 -2Timothy 4:2-3KJV) with the Confirmation of Scripture (2Timothy 3:16-17KJV) those who continue to Sin so that Satan does not get a foothold in their Lives and because we are not to agree with evil or allow ourselves to be compromised by it. (Isaiah 5:20-22KJV)

    But we are not to judge anyone’s Eternal Salvation(Romans 14:9-12KJV)even if we can see by their Actions and Words they are walking in their Carnal Flesh or they claim not to believe in God because they may still come to Heart Repentance on their Deathbed or before through the good seeds that were planted in them and watered, only God knows their Hearts and their Eternal Destiny because only He knows the Future but we Pray for them Trusting in God and knowing all those He knows as His own will receive His Free Gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus.

    This does not mean that we continue to share God’s Truth with those who reject it or who are contentious(Romans2:7-9KJV) meaning they continue to Sin willfully showing they have not had True Heart Repentance(Ephesians 5:1-20KJV) or with those who propagate their own fleshy Worldly understanding that is not confirmed as God’s Truth in Scripture seeking to confirm that it is OK for us to continue to Sin until we die because we are under Grace. No but we continue to Pray for them hoping they will Repent and than we move on in Love although still leaving a way open for them in case they come to their senses and seek Unity and Fellowship with us.

    We also remember that our Sins are not about our Weaknesses and Shortcomings which we all have and these may include Physical disabilities, Learning or Mental and Emotional problems.

    We are never to judge others or ourselves Critically and without Love and Compassion. (Philippians 2:1-5KJV) When we worry God does not condemn us instead He Lovingly reassures us that He is always with us and will work everything out for good because we Love Him.

    He also tells us that if we get Angry which is a emotion, we are not to Sin by holding onto bitterness and resentment or to seek revenge, we are always to forgive those who hurt us. We also willingly from the Heart, help those in need both Spiritually and Materially. (Matthew25:31-45KJV)
