In truth, I tell you, everything you attach to the earth will be bound in heaven, and all that you lose on earth will be resolved in heaven. For the kingdom of heaven is like a housemaster who left early in the morning to rent workers for his vineyard. After lying down with the workers on a day of denar, he sent them to his vineyard. When he went out at the third hour, he saw other people doing nothing in the market, and he said to them: You will also go into the vineyard, and I will give you all that is right. So they left. When he went out around the sixth and ninth hour, he did the same. … To quote a human example, my brothers, even with an alliance made by man, no one cancels it or adds it as soon as it is ratified. This is our second point: how do we agree with God? Look at this beautiful writing that shows us how to direct our thoughts up to the level of the word. Do not deprive yourself of one another, except perhaps by unity for a limited time, so that you may surrender to prayer; but then you come together so that Satan does not seduce you because of your lack of self-control. Do not be adapted to this world, but transform yourself by the renewal of your Spirit, so that you may discern by trial what is God`s will, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Put on all of God`s armor so that you may be able to oppose the devil`s plans. For we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against the masters, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers on this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places. Therefore, take all of God`s armor, so that you may resist the bad day, and that you have done everything in his power to stand firm. Standing now on the belt of truth, he put the shell of justice and made for your feet the readiness that the gospel of peace has given. … Everyone knows that smoking is bad for you. We all have an intellectual and logical convergence on this. Why are millions of people still smoking? Because they don`t agree emotionally that it`s bad for you. Smoking has done something for them who have treated their pain with medication. Often we felt accepted. Medicating the pain in their heart now is worth them more than the high risk of cancer later on.
Stopping is not what they want to do. No emotional agreement. Do not worry about anything, but in all, through prayer and entreaties through thanksgiving, let your entreaties to God know. The revelation of Jesus Christ that God gave him to show his servants what is to happen soon. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who was witnessing the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ, yes, of all that he saw. Blessed is he who reads the words of this prophecy and blesses those who listen and hold what is written in it, for time is near. John to the seven churches of Asia: grace and peace on the part of the one who is, who is and will come, of the seven spirits before his throne, and of Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead and the lord of the kings of the earth. He who loves us and who has freed us from our sins by his blood… Trust the Lord whole of your heart and do not rely on your own understanding.
Didn`t I order you to do it? Be strong and brave.
