Revive hope. Do you need your hope revived?
There is so much going on globally, it can get overwhelming, to say the very least. Especially if you follow the alternative news in conjunction with mainstream news. Man!
The economy is going down the tubes, bankers are being murdered and tortured, terrorists swarm and invade every single nation, the Middle East is a ticking time bomb, Illuminati satanists are getting bolder and are increasing exponentially, lethally-manufactured and severe weather, escalating terror threats, planets and stars freaking out in space, drought in one hand with poisoned water in the other, volcanoes blowing their tops, earthquakes rattling our nerves, road rage, out of control murdering police, … I won’t even touch on tyrannical reign and all of the abounding political garbage because …
IT’S ALL JUST TOO MUCH!
If there was ever a time to be spiritually discerning, by the grace of God Almighty, it is now. There is no denying that we are in the last days. It is so overwhelming and frightening. I don’t want to be around for what is coming, I don’t want to be tortured or nuked! Will the world come to an end?
Let’s look at and focus on the facts.
FACT: The Bible does not say anything about the world being terminally destroyed, not that I can find. Ah, but a skeptic would throw Matthew 24:35 out there, yes?
Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will by no means pass away.”
Yes, His Words will remain forever for they are established in heaven. If His Words are established in eternal heaven, then heaven can not pass away. Not the substance of the heavens and earth, which will always remain, but Christ is speaking of the qualities of heaven and earth, which will be altered: they will be renewed and refined, but not destroyed. The bad qualities, or evil circumstances, through the sin of man, will be removed and pass away, but they themselves will continue in being. Or His statement could be considered a comparative expression, that the heavens and the earth, and their ordinances, which nothing can be more firm and strong, being fixed and supported by God himself, shall sooner pass away, than anything asserted and predicted by Christ would. “But My Words shall not pass away.” Revive your hope.
FACT: Jesus has already achieved the victory. He conquered death and verified His deity with His resurrection from the dead. Absolutely nothing is too difficult for Him, He is the True Messiah. He is the triune God, God the Son. Revive your hope.
FACT: satan’s reign on earth has an expiration date and his abilities are limited. he is not omnipotent, he’s just a fallen angel. (BTW I purposely do not give his name the proper noun acknowledgment; doesn’t deserve it.) Revive your hope.
FACT: Judgement is coming to the inhabitants of earth, yes. This judgement is not the same judgement that Christians will receive much later before God on His throne. This judgement is final and very costly. It is the destruction of evil on the earth and it is the bottom line damnation of unrepentant souls. God is cleaning up and clearing out the contamination of the world. Why would He clean up something that He is ultimately going to destroy? Nations certainly will be destroyed. Leaders and other unrepentant will be destroyed. But the world will not. Revive your hope.
FACT: Jesus, the Mighty Warrior and Majestic King of kings, Lord of lords is indeed returning to earth. Sensational hope in that knowledge. Revive your hope.
FACT: God has been patient with mankind far beyond any human capacity, verifying His Godliness, if I can call it that. His patience stems from His waiting for more people to accept His free Gift of salvation. He truly does not want a single soul to perish. Souls. Remember that satan does not have a soul, and he certainly will perish unending. Forever. If you are a Christian revive your hope. If you aren’t Christian, you can be. So revive your hope when you make that choice.
FACT: Souls; humans created by God have souls. No other living creature has a soul. We are special and unique in that fact. Revive your hope.
FACT: The horrific DNA experiments of half bloods do not have souls. These experiments are manmade and sometimes demonically made, the nephilim for example, who continue to procreate today. These are satans counterfeit “creations”. Angels do not have souls, good or bad it doesn’t matter soul-wise. the Bible tells us that the uncreated Creator, God created the angels but does not state that they were created in God’s image, since that was reserved specially for mankind. How do I know this for sure? Jesus did not become man to save the angels. He lowered Himself to become man to save mankind, Who God created beginning in the Garden of Eden with Adam and then Eve after God created the heavens, the earth, and the seas and everything good within them. Revive your hope.
FACT: God created the heavens and the earth and the seas already mature. Everything was already greatly mature upon creation. Just like man, Adam. He was created in maturity, not as a baby. Spectacular craftsmanship God displayed with the beginning being mature; Masterful! NOTHING is too difficult for God! Revive your hope.
FACT: I do not want to be around for when the stuff finally hits the fan. But He knew when I would be born or not. He knows me inside and out, what I can handle and what my breaking points are. He has spared me and also has healed me from death too many times for me to ignore. He knows precisely who is here for these last days. So I can either continue to whine and fret about being here or I can get with the program. I choose to get with His program and discover what skills I have that He wants to utilize and strengthen my spiritual “man” by being disciplined in my reading the Word, the Holy Bible. He has so many answers in that wonderful Book!
Do you feel like you’re being lifted, are you feeling His outstretched Spirit of peace and hope, even just a glimmer?
1 Peter 1:3-5 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
Psalm 27:4-6 “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.”
He is waiting for you. He doesn’t want you stuck in the muck.
He has a definite purpose for each and every one of us. He tells us to lift out heads. He tells us to watch for Him because most assuredly He is coming for us! He tells us not to look at the circumstances, but to prepare and to believe upon our Blessed Hope; the rapture of the saints. He also tells us what signs to watch for and compares them to labor pains. See how He enables us and helps us? He hasn’t abandoned us, and never ever will. Because He does not have faithfulness. He is Faithfulness.
Do you have the love of God, have you accepted His love? It is the triune God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, the God of creation that I speak about. NOT Jesus the prophet but Jesus Christ the Son of God. He has given us a priceless, yet free to us Gift. It’s available to every single person, no matter what you have done or are doing. Won’t you accept His free Gift of eternal salvation? While you still can, no one is guaranteed a tomorrow.
The Holy Spirit is nudging you. Today is the day of your salvation. It’s as easy as your ABC’s to know if you are saved.
A. Admit you are a sinner; all of us have sinned and fallen short because we are not perfect. Confess your sin to God and repent (turn away from sinning).
B. Believe that God sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth to pay for your sin, a price you cannot pay, that Jesus died and rose from the dead victorious, defeating death and the grave and even now stands at Gods right Hand. Only His sacred Blood Covering will clean you before God.
C. Call on Jesus’ Holy Name. Ask Jesus Christ of Nazareth, God the Son, the True Messiah into your heart to be your Savior. Confess with your mouth, believe in your heart, and you will be saved. Rejoice!
