A TRUE Christian's "Labor" Day...

Labor NOT
for the food
which perisheth


.. but for that food which endureth
unto Everlasting Life+,
which the SON+ of Man
shall give unto you:
for HIM+
GOD The FATHER has sealed.
John 6:27

Yes, that is what true Christians labor for, whether they work directly in a ministry or indirectly minister to the ones The LORD sends their way. True Christians constantly work to establish the Kingdom of GOD+: in themselves, in others, in their home, or in their public workplaces. Temporal work is simply doing the necessity of the day; it is NOT the reason for living. Temporal work is NOT what gives a Christian his identity. Thus, we labor for that "food" which endureth unto Everlasting Life... food which does not spoil.

Why can the SON+ of Man give us Everlasting Life?
? ? ?
Our LORD HIMSELF+ told us why:
Because ( for the reason being that )
HIM+ has GOD THE FATHER
sealed.
* * *
The Greek word for sealed means to MARK WITH THE OFFICIAL SEAL OF THE SOVEREIGN POWER ( king, emperor, top authority). Usually with his signet ... a stamp or ring ... which was impressed in hot wax upon whatever item was being sealed by the authorities. Certain death would be brought upon ANYONE who broke through the seal unlawfully.
.
This can be seen in Daniel 6:17 when King Darius of the Medes, a great, conquering, military might, placed the Prophet Daniel into the lion's den:
And a stone was brought,
and laid upon the mouth of the den;
and the king sealed it with his own signet,
and with the signet of his lords,
that the purpose might not be changed
concerning Daniel.
.
The powerful military government of Rome also sealed a famous stone with the official signet of Rome, Matthew 27:65, 66.
Pilate said unto them (the Jews),
Ye have a watch: go your way,
make it as sure as ye can.
So they went ,
and made the sepulchre sure,
sealing the stone,
and setting a watch.
.
Of course, we recall that SOMEONE+ DID BREAK THROUGH this "official" sealing of the tomb, bless GOD!
.
Because NO-ONE, not even the greatest military might upon earth, could hinder The LORD JESUS CHRIST from breaking through that Roman seal upon HIS+ tomb ...
NO-ONE is able to hinder HIM+.
NO-ONE,
NO MATTER THE MILITARY POWER AT HAND,
CAN HINDER
CHRIST JESUS our LORD+
from giving us who follow HIM+ to the death
Everlasting Life+...
Because it is HE+,
our LORD JESUS,
WHO+ has the
Unbreakable Seal
now,
directly from The FATHER.
+ + +
No man cometh unto The FATHER,
except through ME+ .
And, MY+ FATHER,
WHO is greater than all,
gave them to ME+,
and NO ONE
... seen or unseen...
can pluck them
out of MY+ FATHER'S Hand.
I
and
MY+ FATHER
are
ONE
.
