1 Corinthians 1:10

King James Version (KJV)
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.  Amen.

 I read a lot on the internet, and especially enjoy reading the comments. Every once in a while, and more frequently lately, I come across a comment that resonates with my spirit as I could be saying or writing the comment exactly as it stands.  I love the edification of another one of God's people being so joined with my heart and mind, and brings a joy that is hard to describe, but they always make me rejoice.  Interestingly enough, the comments have one thing in common.  They all mention Jesus' Second Coming drawing near.  They praise His name and their words glorify Him, as I hope and pray mine do.

The world is in a state of transition. And confusion.  But, His people are not walking in this darkness.  We know the changes that are happening are for the fulfillment of prophecy.   We know that as the darkness grows, so will the light of the Lord. He is the good shepherd who cares very deeply for His little flock and He knows each and every one.  

Do not let your heart be troubled by all that we see going on, rather give thanks to the Mighty Redeemer for drawing closer to redeeming His people.  We are covered in His precious blood which He willingly shed for us and the promise of dwelling on this earth with Him is worth the wait.  Patiently and longingly we wait because we know He is coming.  Make a joyful noise unto the Lord and sing Him praises all the day long.  

1 Peter 1:7-9

King James Version (KJV)
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.  Amen.

Praise to our Father for not making us one of those who will be scurrying under rocks to escape His wrath.
