From Tribulation to Jubilation

During this time of pandemic, I pray all are doing what you can to "stay at home" in safety for yourself and your families.

Though we are seeing the suffering of many, it is not a surprise to the LORD. We are in a fallen world, but Christ Jesus tells us:

John 16:33, Jesus said, "I have told you these things that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, distress, and suffering, but be courageous; I have overcome the world." Jesus has paid the penalty for mankind's sins upon the Cross.

Acts 14:22, "It is through many tribulations and hardships that we must enter the Kingdom of GOD."  One Day there will never even be a memory of this sinful world for we will be given new bodies that will never again know the sins of this fallen universe.  The following verse tell us:

I Corinthians 15:53-54, "For this mortal body must put on immortality. Then the Scripture will be fulfilled that says, 'Death is swallowed up in victory!"

Revelation 2:10, "Fear nothing that you are about to will have tribulation. Be faithful to the point of death and I (Jesus) will give you a Crown of Life (for all eternity)!' "

In all things, our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD is the answer to everything!

GOD's Promises to Mankind

Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Jesus Christ our LORD!"

John 3:16, For GOD so Loved the world  that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life!"

Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace you are saved through faith and not of yourselves: it is a gift of GOD, not of works lest any man should boast."

Acts 16:31, "Believe on the LORD Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, and your household!"

Acts 4:12, "Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved!"

John 14:6, "Jesus said, 'I Am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.' "

Have you asked Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins? It's as simple as that. With your heart you come to Him truly in sorrow for your sins whether big or small, and ask His forgiveness. 

Romans 3:23, "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD."

I John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, He Who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness!" Praise the Holy Name of Jesus Christ!

Happy Easter To You!

Matthew 28:2-6, "There was a great earthquake, for an angel of the LORD came down from heaven and going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.

"His appearance was like lightening and his clothes were white as snow.

"The guards were so afraid they shook and became as dead men!

"The angel said to the women, 'Do not be afraid, for I know you are looking for Jesus, Who was crucified. He is not here; He has risen just as He said.' "

Existence doesn't end at death. Jesus said all people will be resurrected - some to eternal judgment and others to eternal life. Those accepting Jesus as their Savior for paying the penalty for their sins upon the Cross will receive eternal life in new resurrected bodies. Those rejecting Jesus' free gift of salvation will be resurrected to judgment with an eternal punishment which they will pay for all eternity. (Revelation 20:11-15 for the lost; Revelation 21:1-4 for the saved) 

John 11:25-26, "Jesus said, 'I Am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies; whoever lives and believes in Me will never die! Do you believe this?' " Praise you, LORD Jesus, I do believe in You with all I am!!!

Praise our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD for His free gift of salvation and resurrection to eternity with Him!

Pray Without Ceasing

Philippians 4:6, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GOD."  GOD is all knowing. I John 3:20 tells us, "GOD is greater than our hearts, and He knows everything." 

John 14:14, "You may ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it!" This promise Jesus has made to His children of salvation. He has a purpose during these perilous times of the coronavirus. Millions will come to His salvation during this time. This life is temporal but the new life in Christ Jesus is eternal. Another promise to His born again believers is: Revelation 21:4, "He (Jesus) will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the OLD ORDER of things has passed away!"

Hallelujah, there is a New Heaven, New Earth, New Jerusalem awaiting for us! Revelation 21:1-4, "I saw a New Heaven and New Earth for the first heaven and earth (present time) passed away...I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from GOD!

"I heard a loud voice from the throne of GOD saying, 'Now the dwelling of GOD is with men, and He will live with them. They will be His people and He will be their GOD!' " Eternity is awaiting all who come to Christ Jesus for the salvation from their sin. Do you know Jesus? It is very simple. Acts 16:31, "Believe in the LORD Jesus, and you will be saved-you and your household!" Simple belief, asking Him to forgive you of your sins. Believe in your heart not just in mind. One Day there will be no more sorrow, pain, aging, disease, or death; only eternal life in the new bodies we will receive from Him. Sin will be no more remembered! Only the glory of our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD will permeate in us for all eternity! Praise His Holy Name forever and ever!
