How wonderful is it to know that one day we shall rise to everlasting life through Jesus Christ our Savior. By God, we will live again!
“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)
Let not the riches of this present age deceive us into believing we are rich. We brought nothing into this world and we will take nothing out of this world. Only our faith in Jesus gives us hope for eternal riches.
Therefore, what manner of people should we be, knowing all of this that we see will one day be gone? Look to God, strive for endurance, give ear to the faith and never give that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, an opportunity to dwell in our hearts and minds.
Retribution will come, but it will come from God; we only need to be silent. For now, pray for one another, bless one another and encourage one another with these words.
