Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

Tom's books include: Called By Christ To Be ONE, The Time Of The END, The Season Of The Last Generation, Worship God In Spirit And In Truth, Daniel And The Time Of The END, and Overcoming The Evil One. They are available at amazon.com. They can also be read without cost by clicking on link: Toms Books.

To receive Christ Jesus as a child by faith is the highest human achievement.

Today, the Bride Of Christ is rising up in every nation in the world! Giving Glory to Her Savior and King, Christ Jesus!
Today, the world is Raging against God, Rushing toward Oblivion! Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation!
Today, America is being ground to powder because of it's SIN against God!

1 CORINTHIANS Chapter 9 - The Rights Of An Apostle

The Rights Of An Apostle

Am I not free? Am I not an Apostle?
Have I not seen Jesus our Lord?
Are you not the result of my work in the Lord?

2 Even though I may not be an Apostle to others,
Surely I am to you!
FOR YOU ARE THE SEAL OF MY APOSTLESHIP IN THE LORD.

3 This is my Defense to those who sit in Judgment of me.
4 Don't we have the right to food and drink?
5 Don't we have the right to take a believing wife along with us,
As do the other Apostles and the Lord's brothers and Cephas?
Or is it only I and Barnabas who must work for a living?

7 Who serves as a soldier at his own expense?
Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its grapes?
Who tend a flock and does not drink of the milk?

8 Do I say this merely from a human point of view?
Doesn't the Law say the same thing?

9 For it is written in the Law of Moses:
'Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.'
Is it about oxen that God is concerned?

10 Surely He says this for us, doesn't He?
Yes, this was written for us,
Because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes,
They ought to do so in the hope of sharing in the harvest.

11 IF WE SOW SPIRITUAL SEED AMONG YOU,
IS IT TOO MUCH IF WE REAP A MATERIAL HARVEST FROM YOU?

12 If others have this right of Support from you,
Shouldn't we have it all the more?

But we did not use this right.
On the contrary, we put up with anything
Rather than hinder the Gospel of Christ.

13 Don't you know that those who work in the Temple
Get their food from the Temple,
And those who serve at the Altar
Share in what is offered on the Altar?

14 In the same way,
THE LORD HAS COMMANDED
THAT THOSE WHO PREACH THE GOSPEL
SHOULD RECEIVE THEIR LIVING FROM THE GOSPEL.

15 But I have not used any of these rights.
And I am not writing this in the hope
That you will do such things for me.
I would rather die than have anyone deprive me of this boast,

FOR I AM COMPELLED TO PREACH.
WOE TO ME IF I DO NOT PREACH THE GOSPEL!

17 If I preach voluntarily, I have a reward;
If not voluntarily,
I am simply discharging the Trust Committed to me.

18 WHAT THEN IS MY REWARD?
Just this:
That in Preaching the Gospel I may offer it
FREE OF CHARGE,
And so not make use of my rights in Preaching it.

19 THOUGH I AM FREE AND BELONG TO NO MAN,
I MAKE MYSELF A SLAVE TO EVERYONE,
TO WIN AS MANY AS POSSIBLE.

20 To the Jews I became like a Jew,
to win the Jews.
To those Under the Law I became like one Under the Law
(Though I myself am not Under the Law),
So as to win those Under the Law.

21 To those not having the Law
I became like one not having the Law.

22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak.

I HAVE BECOME ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN
SO THAT BY ALL POSSIBLE MEANS I MIGHT SAVE SOME.

I DO ALL THIS FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL,
THAT I MAY SHARE IN ITS BLESSINGS.

24 DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT IN A RACE ALL THE RUNNERS RUN,
BUT ONLY ONE GETS THE PRIZE?

RUN IN SUCH A WAY AS TO GET THE PRIZE.

25 EVERYONE WHO COMPETES IN THE GAMES
GOES INTO STRICT TRAINING.

THEY DO IT TO GET A CROWN THAT WILL NOT LAST;
BUT WE DO IT TO GET A CROWN THAT WILL LAST FOREVER.

26 THEREFORE I DO NOT RUN LIKE A MAN RUNNING AIMLESSLY;
I DO NOT FIGHT LIKE A MAN BEATING THE AIR.

27 NO, I BEAT MY BODY AND MAKE IT MY SLAVE
SO THAT AFTER I HAVE PREACHED TO OTHERS,
I MYSELF WILL NOT BE DISQUALIFIED FOR THE PRIZE.
(1 Corinthians 9)
