JUST PASSING THROUGH

Just for a moment try to imagine a world without hatred.  Imagine a world where love is truly unconditional and justice reigns; Not by appearance shall he judge, nor by hearsay shall he decide, but he shall judge the poor with justice, and decide aright for the land’s afflicted. A place of peace, although,   you will hear of wars and rumors of wars see that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” Matthew 24:6 (NKJV) A place where pain does not exist. I know it sounds like a fantasy and the girl with the rose colored glasses appears a bit delusional.   I can assure you, it is not a fantasy but a promise” 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.” Revelation 21:4 (NKJV)

Imagine just for a moment, a place where there is no racial divide or evil intent where “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

There are those that would strongly argue against such far-reaching ideas but I challenge those to try to imagine.  Once you are able to imagine this, try trusting Jesus and the promises of God’s word.  Wait, before you close your mind; let me ask you, “what do you have to lose?”   We live in a world where there seems to be very little to be hopeful about; a world that has become cynical and disparaging.  Social media has presented us with all types of challenges (ice bucket challenge, post a pic challenge, set yourself on fire challenge) and many take the plunge.  Why not take one more challenge; one that could be life-changing?  There is nothing to lose but everything to gain.  For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26 (NKJV),

Be encouraged my friends, even as you try to imagine; you have not even come close to the reality, “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”img_4582As the Elders said in time past, “This world is not our home, we are just passing through”.  This is just a rest stop on our way to, “The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”  BE ENCOURAGED!

 Prayer: Father we thank you for your peace, the peace you spoke into existence as you declared, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
