This is part three of God is our Hope. Today we discuss, God is our hope for tomorrow.
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does he prospers.” Psalm 1:1-3, ESV
I recently finished my study on the book of Revelation and since this episode is all about Christ coming as a babe in a manger and waiting for His return, let's dive in and see what the Bible says about our future hope. Don’t let the book of Revelation intimidate you, even if all you do is read it or hear it, God says we are blessed.
Revelation 1:3 , ESV “Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.”
This Christmas, remember what Jesus' birth means;
HE IS OUR HOPE, our eternal hope!
This little babe in the manger was destined for great and mighty things.
He was the fulfillment of countless prophecies.
His life shows us how to live, shows us how to depend on and trust in our Father God, just as Christ, Himself did.
His death restored us.
He took on our sin, our shame, for us to have life in His name.
His resurrection means He’s alive, death, and suffering was not the end for Him and it is not the end for us who have fallen on our knees, repented of our sinful nature, and believe in Him, that He died on the cross for our sin and rose again on the third day and is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven.
Come quickly Lord Jesus,
The Spirit and the bride say, “COME”
