  2. Joseph kept a strong faith through his uncanny trials & was greatly blessed! (Gen.50:20) God has a promise to all Christians today. Rom 8:28.
  3. It’s ironic to fear a sudden passing – but hold no regard for choosing death little by little.’ Never let devoted faith decay; eternal life is only in Christ.

  5. (LIFE) contains the greatest conditional word (IF). Jesus teaches abundant & eternal LIFE is found only in Him. Anyone Can Have LIFE, IF … (Jn. 14:6)
  6. Joy, zeal, peace, even eternal life are by-products of God’s grace. Anyone desiring these can ask: “How is grace obtained?” & find the answer. Rom 6:3-14.
  7. Reservations for Heaven must be made on earth. ‘No –Tickets-Sold-at-the-Gate.’ (passes to the alternative abode are default by choice.) Matt. 25:31.
  8. We all eventually ask ourselves this question, but do we know the correct answer? Q – What is the purpose of my life? A – Ecclesiastes 12:13-14,
  9. In a world where ‘everything changes,’ it’s comforting & amazing to know – GOD is always the Same. Psalm 90:2.

10.‘7 days without God….. (Sin-day, Mourn-day, Tears-day, Waste-day, Thirst-day, Fight-day, Shatter-day)…makes a ‘fool Weak.’ Psalm 119:15.
