As I read through a litany of posts at those shocked and appalled by the election results....I kept thinking, "really?!?!" Disappointed ~ I get, even concerned....but shocked....are you really?? Sadly proves how lulled to sleep God's people have become, how much in denial or how ignorant of the time in the Story of the World we have been CHOSEN to live in. Times are hard and will get harder; rise up, wake up, and stand up PEOPLE OF GOD. Be prepared to stand as His Remnant regardless of what comes in the days ahead ~ your strength, hope, peace and future resting solely in HIM. Put on the whole armor of God and rest assured in Knowledge of the Truth at the End of the Story.
Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” ~ NKJV
Our Hope does not rest in the world in which we live......live like it. Stand for what we believe, but don't let your behavior be as those of the world. We are called to fight & stand for what's right till the end, but remember that hatefulness has no place in His army. Don't forget that we are just strangers passing through on our way to our Eternal Home. We are here because we have a Job to do; accept the challenge, the CALLING, and just do it.
1 Peter 2:11 "Friends, this world is not your home, so don't make yourselves cozy in it." ~The Message
♪♫ All I know is I'm not Home yet, this is not where I belong; Take this world and give me JESUS; This is not where I belong..."♫♪
Praise the Lord in the TRUTH of those words, in the hard times, in the hardest of times that are most likely to come. Keep your eyes and hearts focused on that End of the Story. What a day that will be....what a beautiful thing to rest our hopes in, and what a joyous Homecoming we will have!!
1 Peter 1:3-5 " Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."~NKJV
~ I also love 1 Peter 1:3-5 from The Message "What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole."
