New Year 2019, How goes it with you?
The world situation is filled with many problems. The LORD JESUS CHRIST came to save us from our sins. Even in these turbulent times there is hope for you. JESUS said HE would be coming back to earth someday for believers in HIM. In the Gospel of John chapter 14 JESUS says that HE will come again and receive us to HIMSELF. If you are born again according to John 3:3 that means you!
The Blessed Hope we call it. In the Book of First Thessalonians chapter 4 we read verses 16-18.
For the LORD HIMSELF shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of GOD: and the dead in CHRIST shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to MEET the LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
* Those who have died physically that are believers in CHRIST are in Heaven now. When JESUS comes down for the Blessed Hope we call the Rapture their once physical bodies on earth will be taken up to meet their spirit and become whole in a new Heavenly immortal body. Those who are alive at this coming will be taken up bodily and be changed from the earthly to the Heavenly. What a great day that will be!
* The Bible says in First Corinthians chapter 15 verse 52
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
* In First John chapter 3 verse 2
Beloved, now are we the sons of GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when HE shall appear (JESUS) we shall be like HIM; for we shall see HIM as HE is.
You need the salvation and forgiveness JESUS offers you. There is no hope of everlasting life without HIM. Everlasting punishment is not what you want. JESUS came to save, not destroy lives, but you have to act on the words HE said. COME. There is great judgement coming to this earth. JESUS is the Creator GOD. The Gospel is true. JESUS died for our sins. was buried, and that HE rose again from the dead. HE has power over death and can forgive you for your sins. Hope is offered to you. What will you do with it? Someday I will be in the Father's House, I hope you will be too! Mike
