Ps. 1:2 But his delight & desire are in the Law of the Lord & on His Law (The precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders & studies) by day & by night. vs. 3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water…

     This is how we stay away from deception. Deception is going to continue to become more & more in these las days & we need to stay focused on the word & what it says how to stand firm & planted firmly & rooted & grounded in Him. 

     Let me say first, we must have our faith in what Jesus did at the cross and that will produce in us the desire and the insight to Gods word. 

Matt. 24:4 take heed no man deceive you.

Col. 2:8, Matt. 24:24 for false Christs & false prophets will arise, & they will show great signs & wonders so as to deceive & lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God’s chose ones).

     We must habitually day & night meditate, ponder & study the word of God.

     What are we doing everyday? Is our time spent on temporal things? It is what we are doing everyday that will either strengthen us or cause us to be defeated. (provided our faith is in Jesus & what He did at Calvary.)

Ps. 1:1 says we are blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, & enviable) if we DO NOT walk & live in the counsel of the ungodly. That means do not follow their advice, their plans & purposes. (So Dr. Phil is out, Oprah is out!)

     Many times when we run into trouble we ask others for advise, be very careful. This can cause more trouble & heartache than what you had before you ask them.

Walk & live, the bible says so much about how we should walk & live our everyday life.

1) DON’T LIVE IN THE PAST:

Phil. 3:13 forgetting what lies behind & straining forward to what lies ahead.

     We can’t walk & live in the past. FORGET IT! We are now new creatures…

2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any person is [engrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a NEW creation (a new creature altogether, the only [previous moral & spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh & new has come!

     You can not change the past. You are forgiven of the past. Today is a new day walk & live in it. Jesus died for us so we can walk & live in newness of life. We are forgiven. (jer. 31:34 & Heb. 8:12 says He will not remember our sins no more.  Ps. 103:12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions form us.)

2) LIVE IN THE NOW!

Today is the day of salvation. (2 Cor. 6:2)

Now therefore fear the Lord & serve Him in sincerity & in truth: & put away the gods which your fathers served… (Josh. 24:14)

Choose you this day whom you will serve. (Josh. 24:15

Keep your mind on Him. 

Is. 26:3 You will guard him & keep him in perfect & constant peace whose mind [both its inclination & its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, & hopes confidently in You. 

So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him…)

Read: Phil 4:8 Think on these things!!! 

Gal 5:16 But I say, WALK & LIVE [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to & controlled & guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly NOT gratify the cravings & desires of the flesh (of human nature without GOd) vs. 25 If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit).

Eph. 4:15 Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all thinks, speaking truly, dealing truly living truly]. Enfolding in love, let us grow up in every way & in all things into Him who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed one). 

Eph. 5:8 Walk as Children of light [lead the lives of those native born to the light}

Col. 3:1-2

Eph. 5:15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully & worthily & accurately, not as the unwise & witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people) making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.

Eph. 6:10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which his boundless might provides]

We can only truly live if we are IN HIM & let HIM live through us & yield to Him daily.

     I like how Phil. 2:13 put it: [Not in your own strength] for it is God who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing & creating in you the power & desire], both to will & to work for His good pleasure & satisfaction & delights. 

He gives us the strength & the power to live right each day. He gives us the want too & the ability to do His will. 

Rev. 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, & they that hear the words of this prophecy, & keep those things which are written therein: FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND.

3) LOOK TO THE FUTURE:

Heb. 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author & the finisher of our faith. 

Do not worry or fret about the future. 

Phil. 4:6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance & in everything, by prayer & petition(definite requests), with thanksgiving…

Matt. 6:27 And who of you by worrying & being anxious can add one unit of measure to his stature or to the span of his life? vs. 33 But seek (aim at & strive after) first of all His kingdom & His righteousness (His way of doing & being right), & then all these things taken together will be given you besides. So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow…

Titus 2:13 awaiting & looking for the [fulfillment, the realization of our] blessed hope, even the glorious appearing of our great God & Savior Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed one).

1 Thes. 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven… those in HIm, past & present will be caught up with Him in the air. Therefore comfort & encourage one another with these words. (read the whole scripture)

Rev. 21:4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; & death shall be no more. Neither shall there be anguish (sorrow & mourning) nor grief nor pain anymore, for the old conditions & the former order of things have passed away.

Rev. 22:12-17 He is coming quickly! Look for Him. Keep your eyes turned up toward His coming. He is coming for those who are looking for His coming. Rev. 22:7 Behold I come quickly… Heb. 9:28 …to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, & patiently] waiting for & exception Him.

James 7:7-8; John 14:2-3; Rev. 4:1; Rev. 22:20

     Forget the past, live in the now, and look for His coming. How we walk and live each day will either bring us closer or farther away for Him. We can not save ourselves, but we need to live and walk in Him or we will be deceived. Watch and pray! Keep alert! Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ & HIm crucified, ONLY. Do not be deceived!!!!
