Who Makes You Different From Anyone Else?

All people and all things on earth are from God and through God and to God. It is written, "For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen." (Romans 11:36)

Therefore, the prayer that the Lord Jesus taught us includes this: "... For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen." (Matthew 6:13).

The joy in heaven belongs only to the Lord, not to the servants. It is written, "His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'" (Matthew 25:23).

No one can grasp the kingdom and the power and the glory except the only true God. It is because I AM will surely destroy any other beings. And so, anyone who comes with Christ to God must deny himself through faith, and take up his cross to do away with the body of sin, and go to him outside the camp, and crucifiy the flesh with its passions and desires. It is written, "Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: 'If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.'" (Mark 8:34).

That applies to all people on earth. And so, in the Bible, without distinction between the Israelites and the Gentiles, God already said to His faithful servant: "Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites." (Exodus 19:5-6). And again, He said by His faithfull son: "Then he told this parable: 'A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any.'" (Luke 13:6).

All things that God created were created for Him to love them. And so, the Lord Jesus whom God sent said, "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." (Matthew 5:43-45). And also, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16).

And the gospel said, "As the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.' For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile--the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'" (Romans 10:11-13).

Therefore, those who are in the love opened through the curtain will live in God forever and ever, entering into the joy of their Lord. It is written, "And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him." (1 John 4:16).

The thoughts of God are like that. No one was separated before God from the beginning. It is because the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are all of one. It is written, "Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers." (Hebrews 2:11).

Therefore, the preacher of the gospel said, "It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God--that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: 'Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.'" (1 Corinthians 1:30-31).

"He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world." (1 John 2:2). Amen, Amen. Thank you, Lord.
