THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. (John 14:16-20)

Tweet: A Christian is not someone who lives for Christ, but someone within whom Christ lives. Christ thinks through his mind, loves though his heart, sees through his eyes, speaks through his mouth, touches through his hands, and lives through his life.

Tweet: As the Father lived in this world through His Son, who lived His life in this world through His Father, who was living within Him, Christ lives His live in this world through Christians, who live their lives through Christ, who is living within them in the person of the Holy Spirit.

Text: He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. (John 14:21)

Tweet: The true test of one’s testimony of love for Christ is one’s obedience to Christ’s commands. Many a modern-day churchgoer sings on Sunday, “Oh, how I love Jesus,” only to ignore throughout the rest of the week everything Jesus ever said.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof. (Isaiah 6:11-13)

Tweet: Like in the God-forsaking homeland of the ancient Prophet Isaiah, the hardheartedness of humanity in our present-day world will persist until the obstinate are removed and only God’s remnant remain.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod, and took it; At the same time spake the Lord by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot. And the Lord said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia; So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt. And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory. And the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, whither we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape? (Isaiah 20:1-6)

Tweet: God’s true prophet clothes himself with sackcloth, showing his uncomfortableness in the world, and exposes himself to this world’s shame and ridicule, as a sure sign to the complacent and conceited of their coming condemnation and comeuppance.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: If ye love me, keep my commandments…He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. (John 14:15, 21)

Tweet: The true test of your testimony of love for God is your obedience to God.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. (Isaiah 6:9-10)

Tweet: The lot of the Lord’s prophet is to proclaim what people refuse to listen to with their ears, to look at with their eyes, and to learn in their hearts.

Tweet: Obedience does not make God love you more, but it does show your love for God.
