Revelation 13<quoted text> Yes, eternal life is all that we are working for with our hopes invested IN Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 15:19
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
I cannot identify with working 'for' eternal life... not even with hope... but only working for my Father in heaven... here on earth.
Blessings and Peace >>>Lawest<<<
My friend, >>>Lawest<<< I do not debate salvation, but know it... and what I share is because I do. Otherwise there would be no meaning behind working for my my Father in heaven, who has never failed me... even if sharing in WSJLM. Not living in this world as many do, but in the spirit of his kingdom within, there is no fear of who is false, or what to believe. It is written...“8 “The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31<quoted text> >>>>>Irrira< <<<<
Having hope in THIS life only, merely means that our only chance for salvation is in this life only because when we enter the judgement, there will be no more opportunity to repent and take Christ unto ourselves, because it will be too late at that point, as the Bible says........let him who have an ear.
"working" for salvation also means living a Godly life before our Lord here on earth that we may be counted worthy to enter therein into the kingdom.
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Perhaps someone reading posts sometimes will understand what is being said... and benefit. Many need encouragement at this point in time at hand...
I have not been in for 3-4 days... so whatever your week-end brought your way I trust it was fruitful and peace filled.
Blessings and Love always.
