are alive and remain shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17
JESUS PAID OUR DEBT OF SIN
Jesus stepped away from His throne to walk this earth, die our death, and defeat the power of sin over us. Jesus will one day return for those purchased with His blood.
We who've been "Bought by the Blood of the Lamb" are filled with the "Spirit of the Living God." We are part of a Heavenly Kingdom! Heirs of Heaven! Joint heirs with Christ Jesus!
JESUS WILL GATHER HIS OWN
One day Jesus will come again and gather His children to heaven. God will wipe away all our tears; there will be no more death or sorrow and no more pain, which I can scarcely imagine.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things
are passed away.
He'll deal with those who've spent their lives oppressing and terrorizing the weak and vulnerable. He will handle those whose hearts and lives seek only selfishness, pride, lust, and injustices.
KINGS AND KINGDOMS
Kings and kingdoms will one day tremble before the "Throne Room of Almighty God!" King Jesus will rule and reign with justice, kindness, and love!
May you remember this day who you are and who you belong to today. Are you walking this earth as Jesus did, full of love, humility, conviction, forgiveness, faith, and concern for those in need? May His Kingdom come, and His will be done in and through you.
O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubim, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.
MY PRAYER TODAY
O, God of all Heaven’s Armies, God of Israel, you are enthroned between the mighty cherubim! You created the heavens and the earth, and You alone are God of all the world's kingdoms.
We pray, O Lord, that your Spirit will flow freely through our lives. We ask You to keep Israel in Your hands and bring peace to Jerusalem.
I thank you for our nation, the United States of America, and especially the nation of Israel! I pray our leaders will have your wisdom and will do everything right in your eyes!
I pray that you bless your people everywhere and be with those persecuted for Your sake.
