THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (1 Peter 1:3)

Tweet: The Christian’s hope is a living hope in the resurrected Christ. It is safe and secure as long as the everlasting Christ is alive. Therefore, unlike the rest of the world, the Christian has an endless hope rather than a hopeless end!

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. (Isaiah 59:14)

Tweet: A perfect description of present-day America found on the page of an ancient prophecy: Justice is shoved out of the courts, righteousness is plumb out of sight, truth is scorned in the public square, and integrity is scarce throughout the land.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:29)

Tweet: I cannot save myself nor anyone else. Only God can do it. Therefore, the work of God is to trust Christ to do it, not for me to try to do it. Whereas I need to be obedient to Christ, so that He may do His work through me, I don’t need to try to do His work for Him.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7)

Tweet: God will do nothing until He informs His prophets, who He has called to inform His people. Although people may ignore God’s prophets, the prophets leave the people without excuse, having forewarned them of all that is to befall them.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. (Romans 15:13)

Tweet: Those who truly hope in the Lord, will be filled with joy and peace, as they trust the Holy Spirit to grant them abounding hope by powerfully affirming to them God’s precious promises.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. (1 Peter 4:7)

Tweet: As we see the end draw near, we must be sober-minded, singularly focused on heavenly things, self-controlled, not caught up in world events nor carried away with worldly things, and pray steadfastly, constantly and without ceasing!

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Tweet: Temptation is not a crime against God, but common to man. Christ has not saved us from temptation, but from sin. He has not ousted temptation from our lives, but enabled us to overcome it in our lives!

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26-33)

Tweet: Contrary to popular opinion, there’s no such thing as cheap or costless Christianity, nor a “crossless” follower of Christ.
