Quite often we find ourselves in ‘situations.’ Way out? PRAISE! We have been provided a way, THE Way!
God be merciful unto us, and confer on us, or invoke in us, His divine favor, Amen.
We ask God to look favorably on us; and cause His face to shine upon us; Selah.
That our way may be known upon Earth. We ask that God bestows saving health and His awesome grace among all nations.
“Let the people praise Thee, O God; let all the people praise Thee.
O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for Thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon the Earth, Amen.
Let the people praise Thee, O God; let all the people praise Thee. Then shall The Earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the Earth shall know Him.” Psalm 67:1-7
We sing “Our God is an AWESOME God, He reigns from Heaven ‘above.'” So much is said in this hymn/song.
We DO NOT know, BUT have been afforded a glimpse.
“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.” Revelations 21:4
What is more inspirational than this verse about Heaven? Here we see the end of all suffering, pain, mourning, and crying and even the cessation of ‘death’. It is about the most precious time when God will wipe away every tear, and when God wipes a tear away, it’s gone forever!
“In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?”
In this verse, Jesus is reassuring them that He is about to leave, but He will come back for them again. If not, He “would have told” them. In the meantime, He’ll be preparing a place for them and for us as well, if we are one of His disciples.
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” Romans 8:18
Here, Paul is basically saying that we can’t possibly compare the sufferings of our present lives and the evil that’s in the world today, with the glory that’s yet to be revealed to us! It’s like a set of scales. Take a grain of dust on one side (today’s suffering in real time), then take all matter in all the universe on the other (Jesus’ Shekinah glory and the Kingdom, eternal life), and it’s not even a contest. Whatever the believer’s were going through at the time, and whatever you are going through right now, nothing can compare with being in the presence of God some day! Not even Paul could describe that glory, for it’s beyond human imagination or words. It is something we all will experience, remaining in constant communion with our Father in Heaven through Jesus His Son.
No other name: Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at The name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God The Father.
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
