“But the path of the just is as the shinning light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. “ ( Proverbs 4: 18). Beloved the future of this world does not look very bright and promising, but for the believer it’s going to get better and better, because we are getting closer to the time when Jesus comes back to rule the world in peace, and love, with no more war, and no more devil, and his demons around for 1,000 years. (See our class on Revelations 21). ” The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” ( II Peter 3:9).” we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” ( Acts 14: 22b). Trials, troubles, suffering, and adversity can bring out the best in a Christian, because it drives us closer to the Lord.” And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.” ( Daniel 11: 35). So the sooner it gets worse in this world, the sooner it will get better for the believer. Why do you think God made Adam and Eve with a free will, knowing the future, and what they would do, and all of us ever since? God knew we all would sin and come short of his Glory. ( Romans 3:23). The Lord wanted us to learn that we needed him, and his love and that we can’t make it without him.“I am the vine ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”(John 15:5).” Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” ( Zechariah 4:6b). ” Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.” (Psalm 105:4).
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
