I just want to build up your faith in God's promises and yesterday we talked about terrorism and not being afraid to die because we have such a great promise waiting for those who die in Christ. So today I would like to strengthen your faith a little more by sharing another great promise along with yesterdays.
John 14:1-3 "Let not your heart be troubled you believe in God, believe also in Me. In MyFathers house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."
Don't let your heart be troubled my friend, if you believe in God you also believe in Christ and He is preparing a place for us in His kingdom and His promise is sure that He will come again.
Matthew 24:30,31 "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect fro the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
Doesn't that get you excited friends, let's be sure that we are ready for that great event that will end all the terror and sin in this world. Everyone will be one with Christ and His Father and with the Angels. The wicked will be destroyed and we will reign with Christ forever and ever. Get yourself ready and pray for your families and help them to see the great reward that God has planned for His people. Nothing will equal what God has planned for His elect, nothing, 'eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him."1 Corinthians 2:9.
If you want to read a description of what heaven and the new earth will be like, read Revelation 21,22. It's a beautiful land where everyone is loving and kind and sin no longer reigns, no tears there, no heartache, no pain, no sickness, happiness will pervade the atmosphere. I long for that day and want to make sure my heart is entwined with the heart of Christ day by day until that great day.
Please I beg you to be ready, you will never regret your decision to follow Christ. Grandma Joan
