On this Christmas morning, and throughout the Day,"
I pray that joy and peace,
Yes, because the time that we are currently living is so short. That when our LORD'S calling us up into the clouds takes place, we will surely hear the sound.
For 1st Thessalonians 4:16-17 assures us by saying:
For The LORD HIMSELF will descend from HEAVEN with a shout, with the voice of an Arch Angel, and with the Trumpet of GOD.
And the dead in CHRIST will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet The LORD in the air. And thus we shall always be with The LORD.
[And knowing that those WORDS are comforting, yet the days we live in, are evil;
I ask you to consider this WORD from Revalation 12:12
Therefore rejoice, O Heavens, and you who dwell in them!
Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea!
For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that his time is short."
Have you noticed how pain and suffering, have increased in these last days? This reality makes me consider how Mathew 24:37 has this to say]:
But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of The Son of Man be.
[And considering the possibility, that the days that are as the days of Noah, are currently upon us.
Could it also be, that because disobedience to GOD'S WORD and commandments, are overwhelmingly taking place on the earth today.
Pain and suffering, are so overwhelmingly prevalent?"
We've all had to go through pain and suffering."
Yet, in our time of pain and suffering, "How many of us have asked the question, “If The LORD is good, and HE is for me: "Why then, has HE allowed this affliction to come upon me?”
And The BIBLE supplies the details to every possible question.
We are all given a good explanation.
Romans 3:23 assures us]:
For all have sinned
and fall short of The GLORY Of GOD.
[And through Galatians 6:7-8 we are assured]:
Do not be deceived, GOD is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
For he who sows to the flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to The SPIRIT will of The SPIRIT reap Everlasting LIFE.
[Yet, because the vast majority of humanity, does not seek GOD, nor search for answers in The BIBLE.
They understand very little when it comes to LIFE'S most important questions."
And so as a rule, they are unable to fully understand the mystery of pain and suffering."
So I advise everyone to seek the counsel that comes from GOD.
With that said,
Consider this question posed to each of us who know that GOD'S WORD is LIGHT.
Isaiah 50:10 poses this question.]
“Who among you fears The LORD,
Who obeys The VOICE of GOD'S servant?"
Who walks in darkness and has no LIGHT?"
Let him Trust in The NAME of The LORD and rely upon his GOD.”
[And knowing that JESUS CHRIST - The WORD of The LIVING GOD, spoke these WORDS on the Day of HIS RESURRECTION]:
"Do not cling to ME, for I have not yet ascended to MY FATHER; but go to MY
Brethren and say to them, 'I AM ascending to MY FATHER and your FATHER, and My GOD and your GOD.
[By this we know that The WORD of TRUTH,
that is from GOD;
Is, GOD, "even over HIS WORD!"
So we must Trust GOD, and do
what HIS WORD sends us to do!"
For HE sends us to make for ourselves Treasure in HEAVEN, because there will be a time
when HE finally calls us HOME."
And knowing that now is the time, to awake out of sleep.
How many are confused, in regards to the Rapture of the Church?
For those who are,
Consider how the apostle Peter was also confused, when in John 13:6-7]:
Peter said to HIM, LORD, are YOU washing my feet?"
JESUS answered and said to him, "What I AM doing you do not understand now,
but you will know after this."
[In like manner, we don't understand everything about the Rapture of the Church now.
But we will know after this.
So in the meantime, simply Trust GOD, and cast all your cares upon HIM."
For HE, Beloved Brethren,
cares about each of us!"
Simply LOVE GOD above all else, and our fellow man,
as we LOVE ourselves."
Care about the SALVATION and well being of others, even as we care about ours.
For in this, the fulfillment of GOD’S Law is complete.
