Do you now believe?

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" John 16:33.

In the world you shall have tribulation, but let not your heart be troubled, be of good cheer, trust and believe in God. "For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God" John 16:27.  

If you’re a true believer Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy" John 16:20.

Do not be anxious about your life, about the many troubles and trials to test you. They’re a nuisance of course but remember He’s made it easy for us to relate with the Father, breaking all barriers between us and God.

He [Jesus] came for this one reason, to destroy the works of the devil, and to give us direct access to the Father.  

He said, "At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you" John 16:26. But you will pray for yourself to the Father instead.

"And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full" John 16:23-24.

In the world wherein you have tribulations, here is how you should pray; go directly to the Father and ask him, and he will give you what you ask for in Jesus’ name. He said, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace." 

This he said knowing "...the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;" John 13:3.

"All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you" John 16:15.

When you ask the father in his name, he said, "he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you." Ask, using his name, and you will receive peace in abundance, and your joy will overflow. Why should you ask? Because he’s no longer with us; "A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father" John 16:16. But he’s not left us comfortless; we still can ask the Father in his name that our sorrow may be turned into unspeakable joy full of glory.

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 
 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.

"Be not ye therefore partakers …

Christ in you the hope of glory!

God created all things by Jesus Christ, "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him" Ephesians 3:12
Faith, not your own, but that we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
By the faith of him, "the dispensation of the grace of God", was given to us also. Paul says, "by revelation he made known unto me the mystery...Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed...by the Spirit." Ephesians 3:3-5. The revelation is unique my friend.
He wrote also saying, "Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ." Ephesians 3:8-9. We don’t just fellowship anyway anyway but we’re enlightened, an…
