Preparing yourself for the return of Jesus

Joan Boney ... apostle/prophet

During all the years since being born again, our goal should have been to keep the word of God... to find out what the Bible says and to do that and to cling to that Word regardless of opposition coming to us, even opposition by our own pastors.

Between now and the return of Jesus, this should  certainly be our goal.

As we read the Bible, we examine ourselves and our doctrine, conforming ourselves to the Word in the New Testament by faith and by the Spirit of God that is in us.

Thus the apostle Paul says:

Romans 12:1-2   I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


Jesus said:

John 14:23-24    If a man love ME, he will keep MY words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

He that loveth ME not keepeth not MY sayings:


Matthew 5:32    But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Mark 10:6-9    But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

11-12    And HE saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

I Corinthians 7:10-11    And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:  But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.


I Corinthians 6:9-10    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (homosexuals), nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

(We did these things before we were born again but after we were born again and forgiven and cleansed by the blood of Jesus, if we return to our sins and do these things it is a very serious matter, after we come to the knowledge of God.)

Hebrews 10:26-31    For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

For we know HIM that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto ME, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.


We must not live by the standard of today's world, committing fornication at will, divorcing and remarrying at will, approving homosexuals and lesbians, living in drunkenness, hating, exalting oneself.

Thus Paul said "be not conformed to this world."

If this world becomes our standard, we put ourselves in the position to be judged with this world in the wrath that is coming from God because of the sins of this world.

While there is still time, conform yourselves to the Word of God.  Support the sayings of Jesus in the New Testament.  Aline yourselves to the Word of God, the Holy Scriptures.

Knowing this:

II Timothy 3:16-17   All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
