encouragement praise

Soli Deo Gloria – Restoration

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Philippians 4:4 -9

Jesus is my Savior and Rescuer.  He restores us to God.  He shall restore all of creation to God.

Jesus Christ is returning, sooner than most think, to rescue us, to restore us to the place and existence for which our soul longs.  Nature groans under the curse, waiting for that day.

He will return for us, to take us to a place where there will be no more tears, no more suffering, no more death.  We will live in the presence and glory of the almighty God.

John 6:38-40 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

We will be in heaven, with God, forever, only because of Jesus.

Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever.  For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints.  They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.  The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever. Ps. 37:27-28.

We have faith in what God accomplished in the past.  Our hope is in what he promises for our future.  He promises a perfect and lasting peace for those that put their trust in Him.

knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. … So we do not lose heart.  Though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.  For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen.  For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Cor. 4:14-18

God, give us the eyes to see and the strength to truly believe in your eternity for us, and to live in that hope.

“… He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Rev. 21:4

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.  Praise Him all creatures here below.  Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  Amen.

We praise you God for your Glory.  We REJOICE in you Lord.  Forever.

“Surely I am coming soon.” Amen.  Come, Lord Jesus!  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all.  Amen. Rev. 22:20-21
