PURE spiritual milk

 

1 Peter 2:1-3

King James Version

2 Wherefore laying aside all malice, 

and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, 

and all evil speakings,

2 As newborn babes, 

desire the sincere milk of the word, 

that ye may grow thereby:

3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.


If you're not born again yet, it's time to be one.

For it's all preparation now.

That we may be ready, and acceptable, when GOD decides on the Rapture.

As a new man in CHRIST, it's time to "desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby".

Being born again, and believing the pure WORD of GOD, matters for these reasons:

1 Peter 1:23-25

King James Version

23 Being born again, 

not of corruptible seed, 

but of incorruptible, 

by the word of God, 

which liveth and abideth for ever.

24 For all flesh is as grass, 

and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. 

The grass withereth, 

and the flower thereof falleth away:

25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. 

And this is the word 

which by the gospel is preached unto you.
