Obeying God’s commandments is how you love the Father and Jesus with all your heart with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind. Upon Christ’s second coming will you have Jesus’ and the Father’s commandments written on your heart, mind, strength and soul or will the devil have left his mark on you?
**NAB DEU 11:18 **
“Therefore, take these words of mine into your heart and soul. Bind them at your wrist as a sign, and let them be a pendant on your forehead. Teach them to your children, speaking of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest. And write them on the doorposts or your houses and on your gates, **so that, as long as the heavens are above the earth, you and your children may live on in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers he would give them.” ****“For if you are careful to observe all these commandments I enjoin on you, loving the LORD, your God, and following his ways exactly, and holding fast to him,…” **
A man’s strength in battle or at work is in his arm, wrist and hand. To bind God’s law on your wrist is to write it on your strength. When Christ returns it is His and the Father’s will that he will be looking for as the mark on the strength of your arm, on the forehead of your mind, in your heart, and on your soul.
**NAB REV 14:9 **
A third angel followed the others and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast or its image, or** accepts its mark on his forehead or hand**, he too will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger. He will be tormented in burning sulphur before the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment shall rise forever and ever. There shall be no relief day or night for those who worship the beast or its image or accept the mark of its name.” This is what sustains the holy ones, who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. I heard a voice from heaven say to me: “write this down: Happy now are the dead who die in the Lord!” The Spirit added, "Yes, they shall find rest from their labors, for their good works accompany them."
Will you write Jesus’ and the Father’s law on your heart, strength, mind and soul, or, will you allow Satan to put his mark on your heart, strength, mind and soul.DEU 6:8 DEU 11:18 EXO 13:9 EXO 13:16 REV 13:16 REV 14:1 REV 14:9 REV 20:4 REV 22:4
