THE WONDER OF IT ALL
As we await our Lord's return for the church, I
draw attention to who we are and what we do now as His church, that one day we will look upon with what I pray will be an
informed amazement, how God brought us all together here to give Him the Glory and do our ministries in the life He provided.
Let us make this time to remember forever
in His Book of Life.
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will
come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
But first, the great teaching of The Apostle Paul, that we can
count on because our Lord KEEPS HIS WORD:
1 Corinthians 15:54-57
" So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall
have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death,
where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks
be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
"For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name
is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit
of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones."
God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him."
1 John 5:13
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye
may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
THE CALL OF GOD TO COME UNTO HIM
" And the Spirit and the
bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take
the water of life freely."
has nothing to do with the chronology of the Church nor our presence in the Tribulation. It is a invitation by the Church
for Christ to come and by The Spirit for sinners to come to Christ NOW which is our work through the Gospel of Jesus Christ
This IS the invitation today! If a person
unsaved is tired of drinking of the cesspools of the world, WE, in the power of The Spirit, invite them TO COME TO HIM!...NOW,
before it's too late. We do it through The Gospel in The Spirit of love.
"Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that
hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."
" In the last day, that great
day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink."
THE NEW JERUSALEM AND THE UNIVERSE:EVER
BRIGHT BY THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
"And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had
no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light
"And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall
be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there
shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they
shall reign for ever and ever."

In the presence of enemies
He overshadows us
His every word is
And He will raise us up unto forever

A LOVE NOTE FROM THE
APOSTLE PAUL FOR LOVERS OF CHRIST
" Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus,
and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our
Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the
eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the
glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according
to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own
right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is
named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to
be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all." Eph.1:15-23
" And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
