Proverbs 19:1. Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.  

Beloved, all through the Bible from eternity past, eternity present and eternity future. There is one attribute that had remain constant with God the Father. It is faithfulness . Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; 1 Corinthians 1:9: God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. God remains faithful, dependable, reliable and truthful . His words still remain yes and amen. 2 Corinthians 1:20. For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.. Many in Bible days both in old and new testaments shared this gracious attribute of God. Numbers 12:7. My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.  Nehemiah 7:2. That I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the ruler of the palace, charge over Jerusalem: for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many..Daniel 6:4. Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.

Galatians 3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. Ephesians 1:1. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: Beloved, very unfortunately globally in Christemdon , there is dearth of this virtue. Believers have lost this virtue . In place of faithfulness, vices of dishonesty, deception are now the other of the day. God's power and presence have departed from the church, from pulpit to the pew. The drive for fulfillment and gains of the world at all cost , have now replaced godliness and contentment. Integrity, truthfulness have no relevance again in the church world. Beloved, it is true that, we are still churchy, relying on past glory. The church globally is now Ichabod. The glory has departed. 1 Samuel 4:21. And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband. No wonder the blessed Holy Spirit, the head of the church in this dispensation inspired the wisest king to wake up the church from complete sliding back to restoration, places this admonition at your disposal. Proverbs 19:1. Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool. Beloved, see how the scriptures severally affirm this all important admonition. Proverbs 15:16: Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith. Proverbs 16:8: Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.  Proverbs 28:6: Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich. I am persuaded of you, that you are not like this,  but just check up are you not following the multitude in their drive to be fulfilled at all cost, sacrificing morality, truthfulness and integrity?  You need to know that God has not changed. He required from His saints of all ages and that includes you, faithfulness. 1 Corinthians 4:2  Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.  Beloved, may the Lord find you faithful at a time like this and bless you as He did for saints of old in Jesus name. Luke 19:15-19. And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.  Remember, it is better to be content with little and loose God to gain anything, no matter how it will benefit you. Proverbs 19:1. Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool

Dearly beloved, the uniform testimonies  of our Lord Jesus Christ, during His earthly ministry was impeccable morality. He was acclaimed to be holy, godly, righteous and truthful . See these uniform testimonies yourself. Remember out of the mouth of two or three witnesses God confirms His words. 2 Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. 1. Himself: John 17:19. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. John 8:46. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?  John 14:30. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 2. Angel Gabriel : Luke 1:34-35. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. 3. The apostles. Acts 4:29-30.  And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.4. The traitor Judas: Matthew 27:3-6. Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. 5. Pilate the Roman governor: John 19:4-6. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. 6. Paul apostle. Hebrews 1:8-9
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.  Hebrews 7:26. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 7. Testimony from glory: Revelation 19:11-13. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  JESUS'S  EXEMPLARY LIFESTYLE OF BIBLICAL INTEGRITY. FOLLOW HIM.  The Bible says, because you are a believer, a disciple , a follower of Jesus, you should be like Him. It is not an advise but a compulsion. Luke 6:40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. The grace of God is available for you to accomplish this. 2 Corinthians 9:8. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. Dearly beloved,  what will be your lifestyle when this is done are these. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15. For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 1 Peter 4:1-2. Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. May the good Lord find you faithful at that day in Jesus name. See these videos, your lifestyle should never have a resemblance of either. God bless you. 

Friend, the rapture is dawning. The Lord shall help you to be prepared and eligible, when it takes place in Jesus name. One great virtue that will count and matter in the life of those that shall be raptured or those who shall end up living with Christ, should they exit this world before then, is biblical integrity.  Very unfortunately, those that are presently pursuing self fulfillment at all cost and sacrificing integrity, Jesus our Lord from glory has this for them. It shall not be your own portion in Jesus name. Revelation 3:15-19. I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.  Jeremiah 5:4. Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.  Friend, but for the likes of you that shall be eligible, these shall be your lifestyle now till Christ comes. Philippians 4:8. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Isaiah 66:2. For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. Matthew 5:3: Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Isaiah 57:15: For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.  Receive grace to be committed to this lifestyle till Jesus comes in Jesus name.  Friend, because you shall really be ready when our Lord comes, be committed to the following.1; avoid justifying evil which is the other of the day in Christemdon presently. Luke 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. 2. Avoid courteousness. Live a lifestyle of godliness with contentment. Luke 12:15. And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. Hebrews 13:5. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 3. Never gain anything at the expense of your precious undying soul. Matthew 16:26: For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 4. Always live with eternity in view.  Deuteronomy 32:29. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! . Colossians 3:1-4. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.
