Works Required

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14      HEAR THE END OF THE MATTER, THE CONCLUSION: FEAR THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE FULL DUTY OF MANKIND.
    FOR THEOS WILL BRING EVERY WORK INTO JUDGMENT, WITH EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN OVERLOOKED, WHETHER IT BE GOOD, OR WHETHER IT BE EVIL.

Matthew 25:14-30      "FOR JUST LIKE A PERSON about TO GO ON A JOURNEY, WHO CALLED HIS OWN SLAVES AND ENTRUSTED HIS POSSESSIONS TO THEM.
    TO ONE HE GAVE FIVE TALENTS, TO ANOTHER, TWO, AND TO ANOTHER, ONE, EACH ACCORDING TO HIS OWN ABILITY; AND HE WENT ON HIS JOURNEY.
    IMMEDIATELY THE ONE WHO HAD RECEIVED THE FIVE TALENTS WENT AND TRADED WITH THEM, AND GAINED FIVE MORE TALENTS.
    IN THE SAME MANNER THE ONE WHO RECEIVED THE TWO, GAINED TWO MORE.
    BUT HE WHO RECEIVED THE ONE, WENT AWAY, AND DUG IN THE GROUND AND HID HIS MASTER'S MONEY.
    NOW AFTER A LONG TIME THE MASTER OF THOSE SLAVES CAME AND SETTLED ACCOUNTS WITH THEM.
    THE ONE WHO HAD RECEIVED THE FIVE TALENTS CAME UP AND BROUGHT FIVE MORE TALENTS, SAYING, 'MASTER, YOU ENTRUSTED FIVE TALENTS TO ME. SEE, I HAVE GAINED FIVE MORE TALENTS.'
    HIS MASTER SAID TO HIM, 'WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SLAVE. YOU WERE FAITHFUL WITH A FEW THINGS, I WILL PUT YOU IN CHARGE OF MANY THINGS; ENTER INTO THE JOY OF YOUR MASTER.'
    ALSO THE ONE WHO HAD THE TWO TALENTS CAME UP AND SAID, 'MASTER, YOU ENTRUSTED TWO TALENTS TO ME. SEE, I HAVE GAINED TWO MORE TALENTS.'
    HIS MASTER SAID TO HIM, 'WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SLAVE. YOU WERE FAITHFUL WITH A FEW THINGS, I WILL PUT YOU IN CHARGE OF MANY THINGS; ENTER INTO THE JOY OF YOUR MASTER.'
    AND THE ONE ALSO WHO HAD RECEIVED THE ONE TALENT CAME UP & SAID, 'MASTER, I KNEW YOU TO BE A TOUGH PERSON, REAPING WHERE YOU DID NOT SOW & GATHERING WHERE YOU SCATTERED NONE.
    'AND I WAS AFRAID, AND WENT AWAY AND HID YOUR TALENT IN THE GROUND. SEE, YOU HAVE WHAT IS YOURS.'
    BUT HIS MASTER ANSWERED AND SAID TO HIM, 'YOU WICKED, LAZY SLAVE, YOU KNEW THAT I REAP WHERE I DID NOT SOW AND GATHER WHERE I SCATTERED NONE.
    THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE PUT MY MONEY IN THE BANK, AND ON MY ARRIVAL I WOULD HAVE RECEIVED MINE BACK WITH INTEREST.
    THEREFORE TAKE AWAY THE TALENT FROM HIM, AND GIVE IT TO THE ONE WHO HAS THE TEN TALENTS.'
    FOR TO EVERYONE WHO HAS, more SHALL BE GIVEN, AND HE WILL HAVE AN ABUNDANCE; BUT FROM THE ONE WHO DOES NOT HAVE, EVEN WHAT HE DOES HAVE SHALL BE TAKEN AWAY.
    THROW OUT THE WORTHLESS SLAVE INTO THE OUTER DARKNESS. THERE WILL BE CRYING AND GNASHING OF TEETH.

Matthew 25:31-46      "BUT WHEN THE SON OF MANKIND COMES IN HIS GLORY, AND ALL THE ANGELS WITH HIM, THEN HE WILL SIT ON HIS GLORIOUS THRONE.
    ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE GATHERED BEFORE HIM; AND HE WILL SEPARATE THEM FROM ONE ANOTHER, AS THE SHEPHERD SEPARATES THE SHEEP FROM THE GOATS;
    AND HE WILL PUT THE SHEEP ON HIS RIGHT, AND THE GOATS ON THE LEFT.
    THEN THE KING WILL SAY TO THOSE ON HIS RIGHT, 'COME, YOU WHO ARE BLESSED OF MY FATHER, INHERIT THE KINGDOM PREPARED FOR YOU FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.
    'FOR I WAS HUNGRY, AND YOU GAVE ME something TO EAT. I WAS THIRSTY, AND YOU GAVE ME something TO DRINK. I WAS A STRANGER, AND YOU INVITED ME IN;
    LACKING CLOTHING, AND YOU CLOTHED ME. I WAS SICK, AND YOU VISITED ME. I WAS IN PRISON, AND YOU CAME TO ME.'
    THEN THE RIGHTEOUS WILL ANSWER HIM, 'LORD, WHEN DID WE SEE YOU HUNGRY, AND FEED YOU, OR THIRSTY, AND GIVE YOU something TO DRINK?
    AND WHEN DID WE SEE YOU A STRANGER, AND INVITE YOU IN, OR LACKING CLOTHING, AND CLOTHE YOU?
    WHEN DID WE SEE YOU SICK, OR IN PRISON, AND COME TO YOU?'
    THE KING WILL ANSWER AND SAY TO THEM, 'I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU DID IT TO ONE OF THESE BROTHERS OF MINE, even THE LEAST, YOU DID IT TO ME.'
    THEN HE WILL ALSO SAY TO THOSE ON HIS LEFT, 'DEPART FROM ME, CURSED ONES, INTO THE ETERNAL FIRE, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS;
    FOR I WAS HUNGRY, AND YOU GAVE ME nothing TO EAT; I WAS THIRSTY, AND YOU GAVE ME NOTHING TO DRINK;
    I WAS A STRANGER, AND YOU DID NOT INVITE ME IN; LACKING CLOTHING, AND YOU DID NOT CLOTHE ME; SICK, AND IN PRISON, AND YOU DID NOT VISIT ME.'
    THEN THEY THEMSELVES ALSO WILL ANSWER, 'LORD, WHEN DID WE SEE YOU HUNGRY, OR THIRSTY, OR A STRANGER, OR LACKING CLOTHING, OR SICK, OR IN PRISON, AND DID NOT TAKE CARE OF YOU?'
    THEN HE WILL ANSWER THEM, 'I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU DID NOT DO IT TO ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE, YOU DID NOT DO IT TO ME.'
    THESE WILL GO AWAY INTO ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, BUT THE RIGHTEOUS INTO ETERNAL LIFE."

Ephesians 2:10      FOR WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS FOR GOOD WORKS, WHICH THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) PREPARED BEFOREHAND SO THAT WE WOULD WALK IN THEM.

Philippians 1:29      FOR TO YOU IT HAS BEEN GRANTED FOR CHRIST'S SAKE, NOT ONLY TO BELIEVE IN HIM, BUT ALSO TO SUFFER FOR HIS SAKE,

Hebrews 10:24      SO, LET US CONSIDER ONE ANOTHER TO PROVOKE UNTO LOVE AND TO GOOD WORKS,

James 1:22      BUT PROVE YOURSELVES DOERS OF THE WORD, AND NOT MERELY HEARERS WHO DELUDE THEMSELVES.

James 1:25      BUT ONE WHO LOOKS INTENTLY AT THE PERFECT LAW, THE law OF LIBERTY, AND ABIDES BY IT, NOT HAVING BECOME A FORGETFUL HEARER BUT A WORKER, THIS MAN WILL BE BLESSED IN WHAT HE DOES.

James 2:14-26      WHAT USE IS IT, MY BRETHREN, IF SOMEONE SAYS HE HAS FAITH BUT HE HAS NO WORKS? CAN THAT FAITH SAVE HIM?
    IF A BROTHER OR SISTER IS LACKING CLOTHING AND IN NEED OF DAILY FOOD,
    AND ONE OF YOU SAYS TO THEM, "GO IN PEACE, BE WARMED AND BE FILLED," AND YET YOU DO NOT GIVE THEM WHAT IS NECESSARY FOR their BODY, WHAT USE IS THAT?
    EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HAS NO WORKS, IS DEAD, being BY ITSELF.
    BUT SOMEONE MAY well SAY, "YOU HAVE FAITH AND I HAVE WORKS; SHOW ME YOUR FAITH WITHOUT THE WORKS, AND I WILL SHOW YOU MY FAITH BY MY WORKS."
    YOU BELIEVE THAT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) IS ONE, YOU DO WELL. BUT THE DEMONS ALSO BELIEVE, AND TREMBLE.
    BUT ARE YOU WILLING TO RECOGNIZE, YOU FOOLISH FELLOW, THAT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS USELESS?
    WAS NOT ABRAHAM OUR FATHER FOUND RIGHTEOUS BY WORKS WHEN HE OFFERED UP ISAAC HIS SON ON THE ALTAR?
    YOU SEE THAT FAITH WAS WORKING WITH HIS WORKS, AND AS A RESULT OF THE WORKS, FAITH WAS PERFECTED;
    AND THE SCRIPTURE WAS FULFILLED WHICH SAYS, "AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED THEOS, AND IT WAS CREDITED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS," AND HE WAS CALLED THE FRIEND OF THEOS.
    YOU SEE THAT A PERSON IS FOUND RIGHTEOUS BY WORKS AND NOT BY FAITH ALONE.
    IN THE SAME WAY, WAS NOT RAHAB THE PROSTITUTE ALSO RIGHTEOUS BY WORKS WHEN SHE RECEIVED THE MESSENGERS AND SENT THEM OUT BY ANOTHER WAY?
    FOR JUST AS THE BODY WITHOUT the SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO ALSO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD.

Revelation 22:12      BEHOLD, I AM COMING QUICKLY, AND MY REWARD IS WITH ME, TO REPAY TO EVERYONE ACCORDING TO WHAT HE/SHE HAS DONE.
