Message #7: "Bible Mail"
Greetings. The Lord told me to write another message today. It has been a while since the last one, because the Lord hasn't given me any words of instruction or exhortation to write so I have had no need to do another mailing. The same is true today , however, he has put several Scriptures in my heart. I hope the following Scriptures will serve to increase your knowledge of the Almighty God and multiply your faith and lead you to repent if you need to repent and help you to seek and serve HIM.
"Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honored his name. 'They will be mine,' says the Lord Almighty, 'in the day when I make up my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son WHO SERVES HIM. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not" (Malachi 3:16-18).
"I will give you a new heart and put a NEW SPIRIT in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws" (Ezekiel 36:36-37). P>

"Therefore, BRETHREN, we are DEBTORS (have an obligation), not to the flesh to live after the flesh. For if YE (brethren) live after the flesh, YE shall die; but IF ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God" (Romans 8:12-14)
"So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature" (Galatians 5:16).

"No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him. Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. He who does what is sinful i s of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother" (I John 3:6-10).
"Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires" (Galatians 5:24).
"If WE deliberately keep on sinning AFTER WE have RECEIVED the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearul expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. . . .

"To the Jews WHO HAD BELIEVED HIM, Jesus said, 'IF you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. THEN you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.' They answered him, 'We are Abrahams's descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?' Jesus replied, 'I tell you the truth, EVERYONE who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed'" (John 8:31-36).
"But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you WHOLE-HEARTEDLY OBEYED the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness" (Romans 6:17-18).
"As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in ALL YOU DO; for it is written: 'Be holy, because I am holy.'" (I Peter 1:14-16).
