Instructions For the True Believer

“Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.” Ezra 9:12

Do not marry an unbeliever. Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.

Do not seek their peace. What makes the worldlings happy is not what should make you happy. Your happiness is in the things of God and the blessings given by him, i.e., the Holy Ghost, prayer, the Word, a peaceful home, helping others
especially find the way of grace.

Do not seek their wealth. Your treasures are in heaven while theirs are here on
earth. Where your treasure is, that's where your heart will be. They will think it
a big thing to save up for retirement in a big way and some of them will obtain it
but many will not. Those who do, will only have a few felling years of pleasure
only to soon embrace hell.

You will be strong. Your strength will be in God and you will not fear the
constant fear of man. You will have power in the Spirit in order to see
deliverance to others.

You will eat good. You will be blessed and God will satisfy your mouth with good
things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. You will desire the things
of God and the things of his Spirit along with his word.
You will have an inheritance that you will leave to your children. Your children will pass on to their children
