|I know from the Word of God, The Bible, that the Promises are available to all Christians the moment
we believe by faith in God. What we believe forms what we say and what we do. When we say and
do the will of God, our rewards begin now. We can live with His promises now and not wait until
My Father God owns it all and I am His son and a joint heir with Jesus Christ.
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through
Christ. Galatians 4:7
All the world can give you is Nothing. You can have “Everything” and still have essentially nothing
One of the greatest generals of all time was Alexander the Great. Before his death 323 years before
the birth of Jesus, Alexander had conquered the entire known world. How happy was he? It is said
that he sat down and cried because there were no more nations to conquer.
For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
When Alexander took his army from Macedonia and crossed Hellespont, he arrived at the city of
Troy. Many of the early Greek and Italian leaders considered themselves to be descendants of the
ancient Trojans. Alexander immediately went to the tomb of Ajax, one of his hero-gods, where he
sacrificed and worshipped. Most of the great leaders of his time and before worshipped dead gods.
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as
God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my
people. 2 Cor 6:16
I’m so thankful that I serve a living God. Where He leads I will follow.
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches,
but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; that they do good, that they be rich
in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; laying up in store for themselves a
good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. 1 Timothy 6:17-19
Alexander the Great was used without his knowledge for the sake of the Gospel. When he unified
most of the world in the Greek language, he prepared the way for the Greek New Testament to be
received and understood.
