Are You Really Excited About Eternity and Meeting Jesus?

Or Are You Dreading it?

“keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.” -Jude 1:21 (NASB)

What fills our minds in these now intense witnessed and perilous times? With such fears as future pandemic’s, power grid failures, storms, stores closed, layoffs, unemployment,  riots, destruction, etc? With all these negative things occurring around us in what or in who do we look to for comfort?

Is it something of or in the world? i.e. unemployment $$$, bank accounts, people, churches, etc?

Or is it in Jesus Christ?

Have our minds been inundated with thoughts of Jesus and His word, meeting Him at some appointed day in the future and then going home to Him? Have we leaned on our faith that the Lord God would watch over us (those that are His) and protect us?

All these questions and thoughts linger within and without but on which side do you land when faced with the world, your faith and Jesus Christ? Are you trusting in Him at all times? Even in your dread, in your fears, in your circumstances? Is your faith unwavering, strong, secure and rock solid in the Lord? And are you longing for His return and your eternal home at His house in heaven? Bottom-line: is the Lord your Master?

Consider the parable told us by Jesus in Luke 12 concerning men and their Master:

Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. 36- Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. 37- Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes;” -Luke 12:35-37b (NASB)

These men were waiting – all the time – for the return of their Master from the wedding feast so that they might – immediately – open the door to Him when He arrived. They were not playing around. They were always watching and waiting. They were always thinking about his return. This was no joke! They lived in their faith, trusted in their Master, and waited for Him in anticipated joy and expectation. They then were blessed because they were focused on his return and alert to when he arrived. Can this describe you and me?

Or perhaps you are hung up in worldly stuff. Hanging on the things that make you feel secure in your present state of mind and being. But the real litmus test is if you fell into very difficult circumstances who and what would you seek out for help? Jesus or the world? Or what if you were facing death, what would help you to face this situation? Jesus or the world? And are you waiting for Him?

“You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God.” -James 4:4 (NLT)

Finally, with all this said, do you long for the day that you get to go home to Him? Are you waiting anxiously to enter the gates of heaven and live forever with the Lord? Please face these questions head-on and don’t ignore the reality of life here and now and finally your eternal life. And please don’t make your religion, your god! Religions cannot save your soul from eternal damnation, only Jesus Christ has the power to save – trust and hope in Him alone!

If you have not considered these things now maybe the time for a complete reassessment of your walk (or lack of) in the Lord. Today is the day of salvation for we are not promised tomorrow. Are you totally committed to the Lord God Almighty? Have you been washed clean by the blood of the Lamb, forgiven of your sin, repented of your sin and dwell in the reality that when you pass from this life to the next it will be in paradise and not in hell?

The Lord is full of love, kindness, mercy and forgiveness but our action items are to obey the instructions in His word – the Bible – and seek His forgiveness through our confession of sin, profession of His Son, and in total repentance. Please read and heed Romans 10:9-10 and call upon the name of the Lord today. He will hear and He will answer.

“so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” -Heb 9:28 (ESV)

“Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” -2 Peter 3:11-12

There are No “But’s or If’s” in Real Faith

What Does Your Faith Look Like?

“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” -Matt 17:20 (KJV)

What does your faith look like today? Is it strong, medium or weak? How do you know; what’s the key to finding out?

Jesus said that if we have faith, the size of the smallest of seeds – the mustard seed – we could move mountains. Often times I think of this in my walk as a Christian and I feel small, faithless and ashamed of my unbelief. When in reality, all I have to do is ***completely*** trust in the Lord. But folks, where the tire hits the road – this sometimes can be extremely difficult since we seem to want to lean on this world’s advice, or ways. But we should not!

We should put aside the but this or but that of if this or if that happens then our prayers would be answered or our desires would be met in the Lord. The “but’s and the if’s” at times stifle our faith. This but’s and if’s can also immobilize us in believing the Lord will take care of it or provide it (if it is in His will, that is – 1 John 5:14). And when this occurs, fear can set in and then our faith overridden with it. I can speak from experience in these matters. What about you?

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” -Heb 11:6 (KJV)

Examine Heb 11, and observe how the pillars of faith in the Bible believed God and He made it happen. All they did was believe! Why, at times, can we not do this? Too many obstacles in our way or naysayers telling us this or that will not happen?

“Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act.” -Psa 37:5 (ESV)

What we need to do is focus on pleasing Almighty God and by doing this it pleases Him – this is our goal – this is our mission in the life! Put off the unbelief and put on trust, hope and faith. For by these simple acts of showing our faith can we assured that the Lord will provide exactly what we need and at the precise time. This is faith in action! And we must take this position at all times, through thick and thin, tough and easy. You see the days are growing darker as we approach the return of the Lord and so our faith in Him must be shored up, and built up in knowing that He will take care of us if we trust in Him.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” -Heb 11:1 (KJV)

Friends, I hope these few words would help build up you faith and keep you from saying or relying the but’s and if’s concerning your hope in the Lord meeting your needs. He will … He hears but we must come to Him in faith and trust, nothing wavering, no double-mindedness, just flat-out faith, hope and trust. Please take time every day with little to no distractions to spend time seeking the Lord, praying, asking, believing and show Him your faith is strong in His provision. .

 “Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your hearts before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah” -Psa 62:8 (NASB)

“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6- But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. 7- For that person ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8- being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” -James 1:5-8 (NASB)

Psalm 46 – “Be Still and Know That I Am God”

God Is Our Refuge, A Very Present Help in Time of Trouble

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2- Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, 3- though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah” -Psalm 46:1-3 (ESV)

Almighty God is with those who make Him your refuge and your strength. For those that live a life of holiness in the Lord Jesus Christ and trust in Him with all their heart, mind and soul, He will be with us every step of the way no matter what mountain we face.

War now plagues the planet with the onslaught of Russia and the Ukraine, tensions between the US and Russia have never been higher. Israel and Iran are about ready to duke it out. China any day now stands ready to wipe our Taiwan. Times are extremely concerning and this next war/s could be devastating. So in spite of all these negative things happening globally, where is your faith? In stuff or in the Almighty?

For those that profess and confess Christ as their Savior, repenting of their sin and claim Him as their Lord they are assured that He is with them every step of the way. How do we know this? Scripture says it many times. He promises to be with us in everything – in every storm, every turmoil, every circumstance – if we will but trust Him in all things. Not in just the good times, but the tough ones too. For He is in absolute control no matter what happens … anywhere. This fact must be an anchor solidifying our faith mooring it to our hearts and minds. For there is no reason to fear. Why? Take a look at Luke 12:6-7 with me for a moment…

“Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7- But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” -Luke 12:6-7 (KJV)

It says that He numbers even the hairs of our head. That’s how much He loves and cares for those that are His. IMO, not even one hair will be harmed if He does not approve or sanction it. Not one! Let this sink deep into your soul and reflect on it as often as necessary. Remember, His will will be done – Lord’s Prayer, Matt 6:9-13.

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth” -Psa 46:10 (KJV)

Put your full trust in Him friends with unwavering and steadfast faith.

Be still and know that He is God and there is no other. He loves us and says the Angel of the Lord will encamp around those that fear Him and He will deliver them – Psalm 34:7. This my friends, you can take to the bank. Just remember it’s His will that will be accomplished and not ours. Pray and seek Him with utmost sincerity and honesty in complete humility. He will hear us and He will do what is best for us. This is faith in action. This is trust in action. Do not speak words of doubt but speak words of deliverance, strength, protection … claim Psalm 91 over you and your family.

“The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.” -Psalm 34:7 (KJV)

So do not fear, and do not be troubled. For fear is not from God – 2 Tim 1:7. Fear paralyzes you and immobilizes your faith. It should have not any root in the rock-solid believer’s life. Be strong and courageous for the Lord will be with you wherever you go – Josh 1:9. 

“You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” -Isa 26:3 (ESV)

Be at peace with God, set your mind on Him. Trust in the Lord!

Again, remember, be still and know that I am God, says the Lord God Almighty. Be calm inside and not driven by the winds and waves of newscasts and reports that paint a very bleak picture of what’s going on. The media is herding people into a corral of fear and worry, scrambling for everything but God. Be quieted and assured that our lives are in His hands 100%. Share this with others and help them build up their faith in Christ in this trying time. Share the Gospel as this is a perfect opportunity to tell others about the free gift of salvation and the Good News come down from heaven to a sin-ridden world.

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” -Rom 10:13 (ESV)

And please ensure you are right with God. If you only do one thing today … pray and seek His face. Ask forgiveness for your sin, then repent of it. Please ensure through your lifestyle that God knows your name and you know His. If you’ve drifted, come back. If you’ve backslid, return to Him. He is waiting at the door, please let Him in.

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” -Rev 3:20 (KJV)

Be blessed today beloved and let your assurance of salvation shine through what you do, say, and think.

Turn to Scripture to help you through this time and turn the TV down or off!

Rmember, God is still on the throne…don’t put your trust in mere men, or in your portfolio (wealth accumulations), or in your money or in ANY idol that you’ve set up pushing God off the throne of your life. Instead, turn to the Lord and put your full trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and in Him only.
