HOPE in JESUS alone

 

Romans 15:13

King James Version

13 Now the God of hope fill you 

with all joy and peace in believing, 

that ye may abound in hope, 

through the power of the Holy Ghost.


Born agains are taught by the HOLY SPIRIT.

SPIRIT taught me much, early on.

I've been born again three years now.

The lessons have been intense.

And here's what I found:

ALL hope must be focused in JESUS alone.


Only JESUS can give us REAL hope.

Why can't we have hope in man?

Scripture answers that, with great certainty:

Genesis 6:5-6

King James Version

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man 

was great in the earth, 

and that every imagination 

of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the Lord 

that he had made man on the earth, 

and it grieved him at his heart.


Psalm 146:3-5

King James Version

3 Put not your trust in princes, 

nor in the son of man, 

in whom there is no help.

4 His breath goeth forth, 

he returneth to his earth; 

in that very day his thoughts perish.

5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, 

whose hope is in the Lord his God:


Jeremiah 17:9

King James Version

9 The heart is deceitful above all things, 

and desperately wicked: 

who can know it?


Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


Romans 8:1-8

King James Version

8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them 

which are in Christ Jesus, 

who walk not after the flesh, 

but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus 

hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do, 

in that it was weak through the flesh, 

God sending his own Son 

in the likeness of sinful flesh, 

and for sin, 

condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the righteousness of the law 

might be fulfilled in us, 

who walk not after the flesh, 

but after the Spirit.

5 For they that are after the flesh 

do mind the things of the flesh; 

but they that are after the Spirit 

the things of the Spirit.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; 

but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: 

for it is not subject to the law of God, 

neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh 

cannot please God.
