Happy New Year! All things are made new!
Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things,[d] and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
When beliebers get to heaven all things will be made new! What a glorious day that will be. But we must act now, many who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ will not see the new heaven and new earth. We are to be witnesses to those here and NOW! PRAY for the lost, WALK in victory to be an example to others, SHARE God's love TO ALL. You 2 Can B used by God!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
I praise you Lord for how you use my sins and failures to humble me, for how this opens me for the inflow of your grace--amazing grace, that enables me to hold my head high, not in pride, but in humble gratitude for your undeserved, unchanging love and total cleansing! #amazinggrace #trustingtheLord
When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Appears, uncover, make visible, make known.. When Christ "appears", who is our life, then we will "appear" with Hm! Hallelujah!
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
No matter what we are going through today, we are assured all things work together for good. God gives us strength to go through the tough times and shows us Himself as our strength. #BeStrong #Godisgood
Answer me speedily, O Lord;
My spirit fails!
Do not hide Your face from me,
Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.
Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;
In You I take shelter.[a]
Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness.
Revive me, O Lord, for Your name’s sake!
For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
In Your mercy cut off my enemies,
And destroy all those who afflict my soul;
For I am Your servant.
Do you trust in the seen or the unseen? Do you trust in this world or God? Choose this day whom you will serve! Whom you will put ALL (100%) of your trust in.
1 John 2:3-6
Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
Do YOU know Christ? Do YOU keep His Word? Are YOU in Christ Jesus? If the answer is YES, then you KNOW HIM! The love of God is perfected in you. Then WALK in His ways. Be a victor not a victim. #IamSecureinHim
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
In Christ we are secure of His love and free from condemnation. Who are you in Christ? #WhoIaminChrist
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
“They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My special treasure
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
We are right where the Lord wants us when we feel like He is all we have left. He loves us too much to let us remain as we are. We are His "special treasure". May God's peace surround you and sanctify your WHOLE spirit, soul, and body!
