WHEREIN DWELLETH RIGHTEOUSNESS

2 Peter 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Living in a world that is so heavily laden with sin and corruption, makes it a little difficult to imagine what it would be like to live in a world without it and to live where righteousness dwelleth.

To live in a world where there is no sin is not very appealing to many people.  I often hear people joke about preferring to go to hell with the sinners because their idea of heaven is too peaceful and boring.  I say they should be careful what they wish for, and if they knew the Savior of the world, heaven could not possibly be boring in any way.  The joy of the Lord is unknown to them.  The peace which only He can instill escapes them nor do they know the warmth and comfort and strength and peace of true love.  


For when one experiences the joy of His love, there is nothing else to be desired more than this.  It is life sustaining more than physical nourishment for we do not live by bread alone.  We can exist on bread alone, but we are only truly alive by the nourishment that comes from His living word and knowing Jesus.


I patiently and longingly wait for His kingdom on earth with new heavens.  To worship Him all the day long will be Heaven on earth, and well worth the wait.

Hi Annon. I am so thrilled and blessed that you are still here with me. I am staying blessed by the love and grace of our amazing Lord, and always looking up with you waiting for our redemption.

It is a most exciting time in which we live and I am blessed you are here to share it with.

One very noteworthy event taking place in our world right now is all the volcanos that are erupting. Wow...Chile, Indonesia, the Philippines, the West Coast (underwater off the coast of Oregon and said to have no end in sight now since it has erupted), and lava lakes in Hawaii. I have read there are even plumes in Nevada and Helium 4 is being released at Yellowstone which is leading some to believe it is awakening as well.

Hold tight to your faith and pray for the Lord Jesus Christ to find us worthy in some small way to escape all that is about to come upon the earth.

It is all in His hands - including us. All praise and glory to the one and only true God.

I love you my brother in Christ and thank you for uplifting me the way you always do. Our Lord is coming. I rejoice so deeply within my soul at the mere thought of it...joy unspeakable.

Indeed what an intersting time to be alive! The signs are everywhere my dear sister. There is nothing good left in this earth. I know and believe that Our God takes care of His own. We call upon his mighty name and rest under his wings.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

Annon.

Hi Annon. I think it is a most interesting time to be alive, but I also know that many people are scared by what they are seeing (those who are paying a little bit attention anyway), and it sure seems and feels like we are nearing a tipping point of some kind. Whether it be martial law in the US, a catastrophic disaster or an economic crash, we may witness a lot of unrest.

But no worries because God does take care of His own and as the darkness grows so does the light.

Love and blessings to you always.

Well hello Matt_333 and thanks for the link; can't wait to see it!

I am doing well; all things considered with a few bumps along the way, but many people seem to be going through hard times of sorts, and I am blessed for your asking. So glad you are still here also. How is everything with you? How many years have we been hanging out here now??

There is a lot of truth being revealed right now and expect it will get even more so in the near future. May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ continue to bless us with the truth according to His precious holy word.

Thanks again my brother in Christ for dropping in and for sharing the video.

Hey FF!

I've been stopping in once every couple weeks for the past four years to see if you posted anything, and to read the comments. I've been around since this site was created, but I went through a few years of not viewing this site.

You are right..... we all have crosses to carry.

As for how is everything going for me - I can't complain about much. The Lord has blessed me with a lot of good things in this life.

Concerning the video, I'm curious to hear your take on it. I'll be checking in to see what you write. I want to make sure I'm not straying off path, by hearing what my true family thinks about this video. I'm just searching for truth, and I feel this video provides a lot of it.

God bless you FF! Your brother in Christ, Matt.

Hey again Matt. I am sorry to say the video wouldn't load, but it looks like I can rent it or buy it which I plan to do soon. I watched some other material of his and from that it seems like he is on the right track as far as who God's chosen people are...and who are not. This is an area of great interest to me and of great importance to understanding our world. I too am just searching for truth. The truth according to His word and not what this world would have us believe. They are always at polar ends - exact opposites.

It brings me great joy to be searching along side with you.

Matt_333 said...

I too have great interest in this area FF.


This is the site I found the video on:

I hope it works for you. If not,I pray the Lord guides you down the right path, and if it is in his will, you will be able rent/buy it in due time.

Well, persistence can pay off! I got to watch it Matt and you were right, it was worth the time. I do believe in the spiritual Israel and not the physical Israel. Isn't it just like satan to twist and turn everything around to deceive for his purpose. I really cannot fathom why anyone would willingly choose to follow him instead of Jesus, but this is our world...for now. I certainly hope and pray we are going to soon witness prophetic events because He is drawing near.

I really enjoyed the video and agree with it - they are of their father the liar. I believe they are from the caucus region once known as Khazaria and moved to the physical land of Israel and converted to Judiasm thus calling themselves Jews but are NOT, but are of the synagogue of satan. I don't believe God's chosen people could or would treat the Palestinians they way they do, if they were truly His people. Sorry, I could go on and on, and I am excited to see the truth revealed and am expecting so much more on this amazing journey to the end of satan's reign.

Love to you in His precious holy name, Matt. Stay blessed and keep looking up and searching for truth according to His word. It is all so amazing as is our wonderful and mighty Savior. All praise and glory to Jesus for all that He has done, is doing and is to do. Come Lord Jesus, come quickly. Your people and all creation groans.

Matt_333 said...

I agree with basically all you said FF.

The only thing that makes me not completely trust everything in the video, is the fact that Anderson has been on Alex Jones show a few times. I found this out recently, and I don't trust Alex Jones at all.

May God shine his light before you, and guide you into all truth that you are seeking. In Jesus Christ's name I pray. Amen.

faithful forever said...

Interesting...I do not care for Alex Jones at all either and it does make Anderson lose some credibility for being associated with him, but the bottom line remains the same. I believe Jacob's name was changed to Israel to represent people and not those who dwell in any certain land. I had also seen some of Anderson's beliefs/teachings on homosexuality which I did not agree with. But still sticking with the bottom line that the Jews unfaithfully broke the covenant with the Almighty One, and we are all the same in Christ and it matters not at all about the external, but the internal (the heart) and there is no fooling God about this. Or anything else for that matter! Praise His precious holy name for all He has done, is doing and all that is to come.

Thank you for your beautiful prayer and may He be the only light unto your feet as well by brother.

The verse of the day at Biblegateway:

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
Revelation 21: 2-4 NIV

Stay blessed and keep looking up for our redemption is drawing nigh. YES! Come Lord Jesus, come quickly Lord.

"We can exist on bread alone, but we are only truly alive by the nourishment that comes from His living word and knowing Jesus."

AMEN, sister! Even the babes in Christ who have settled into the standard "just go to church and you'll be fine" routine keep going to church because the power of that nourishment. It angers me that hatefulness and worldliness can be taught to the hungry by using select scriptures. Those lessons damage our sensitivity to the beauty of the truth of God's love, leaving many resigned and patiently waiting for death to have their spiritual questions answered. If only more people got the "read the Bible every day" habit, realizing that God has given everyone full access to the source of his teachings. Why do so many people simply depend on preachers to read our scriptures for us and report to us what they have found every week? We don't read because we don't know how enriching and nourishing those words are, how it like miracle grow for our very souls. Until we are alive in that truth, we merely exist.
