Blessed be the everlasting God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be praised for His abounding mercy, His majesty be adored. When from the dead He raised His Son with exceeding greatness of His Power and His might which is available for those who believe. God raised Him and exalted Him far above all and crowned Him with glory and occupied a place of honour and authority. He is seated and clothed with a garment down to the foot and girt about the breasts with a golden girdle in all His dignity.
His resurrection and exaltation gave us a blessed hope. In fact, He has begotten us again unto a living hope. It is truly an encouraging hope, transforming hope, purifying hope, courageous hope and comforting hope. Above all, Christ the hope of glory dwelleth in us.
Saints by the power of God are kept and we walk by faith as strangers here, but Christ shall come and call us home in glory. When our loved ones will rise first, we who remain shall join them and will be gathered together unto the Lord in glory. The very first time , we will behold His glorious face and will become like Him. So, we shall be transformed morally and physically for we shall see Him as He is. Then, no more separation, but always with the Lord and we will experience unhindered fellowship, being together at and around the Tree of Life, Christ up in glory.
And God has fixed the happy day,
When the last tear shall dim our eyes, When He will wipe these tears away. And fill our hearts with glad surprise.To hear His voice, and see His face, And know the fullness of His grace. When sin no more obstructs the sight, And flesh and sense deceive no more, When we shall see the prince of light, And all His works of grace explore;
What heights and depths of love divine. Will there through endless ages shine! What will it be to dwell above, And with the Lord of glory reign? Since the blest knowledge of His love. So brightens all this dreary plain; No heart can think, no tongue can tell. What joy ’twill be with Christ to dwell….Because, we have fullness of joy in the presence of the Lord and at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Have a blessed Christo-Centeric Lord’s day with every blessing.
We live in a world of conflict. The conflict between light and darkness. The children of Israel pitched before them like two little flocks of kids; but the Syrians filled the country.
Thus saith the LORD, because the Syrians have said, the LORD is a God of the hills, but he is not God of the valleys; therefore will I deliver all this great multitude into thine hand, and ye shall know that I am the LORD. And they pitched one over against the other seven days; and so it was, that in the seventh day the battle was joined: and the children of Israel slew of the Syrians an hundred thousand footmen in one day. — Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. You do not fear them, the Lord shall fight for you. .. battle belongeth unto the Lord. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. They shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee. Have a blessed weekend.
Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all. PEACE is more than joy, and is far deeper than happiness. It is that restful sense that all is well which comes from confiding in the word of God. Christ Jesus is called “ the Lord of peace.” He is the only Man who ever walked through this world of conflict, conflict between light and darkness, yet He walked in perfect peace at all times – until in Gethsemane He faced the judgement He was to bear when taking the sinner’s place upon the cross. As a result of that work peace has been made between God and the needy sinner, a peace which is entered into by faith alone.But there is not only peace with God which has to do with the sin question which has been settled forever. The peace of God is poured daily into the heart that learns to commit all to Him in prayer. There is calm – the calm of sins forgiven. Through knowing sin on Christ by God was laid; and looking upon Him and resting on His merit and knowing that our debt He fully paid. And there is a calm about the unknown future; the earthly road; the fuller life above; And things unknown here and in life’s hereafter- Vex not the soul who knows that God is Love.
Have a peaceful weekend with every blessing from above.
