John 14:15 

             If ye love me, keep my          commandments.


     No one is going to slip along and slide into those gates of pearl.  It will take effort to learn the will of the Lord in His Word. Those snares of

the devil will have to be met with a solid “thus saith the Lord.”  It will take effort to flee from the surrounding temptations that separate us from Jesus.


     Just as Jesus came here to live and show us how to resist evil and do good works, we are to follow His example and walk with Him so we can walk into heaven with Him as Enoch did.
