Misery & Joy
Joy Comes in the Morning
11-9-16, The past eighteen months of the US Presidential election was misery. Those of us who felt [me] that the corrupt Mrs Clinton should never have been the Democrat candidate and with no opposition ... was appalled. Many people just seem to glide on by without misery one; happy as ever. But no one is happy all the time; unfortunately a good part of being in a world of sin is having a life filled with much misery.
There is a difference however for the true born again believer in Christ. Although we are aware and often do suffer many difficulties of life; we know God is in control. We also know:
"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy
comes in the morning." (Psalm 30:5) "Let us not be
weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not." Galatians 6:9
Our complete joy will come when we meet our precious Lord. Until then, we do have His miraculous peace ... and although Obama still sits [soon 'sat'] in our White House ... on January 20, 2017 let the reapin' begin!
4-21-21, We must obey God. Psalm 119:1-8 Jesus' sacrifice doesn't give us permission to commit sin. Romans 6:2 His sacrifice gives us the path to forgiveness; but THEN we cannot deliberately, repeatedly & without regret go back to our sinful ways. If we do that, we were never born again in the first place. Repent, turn to the Lord for salvation. John 3:3, 7; Hebrews 6:4-6

2-12-21, When we look at the truth of God and His requirement for salvation we realize there's only two 'religions.' WORKS or FAITH': Whether it be Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, Mormonism that all preach doing certain 'works' to achieve forgiveness and eternal life with God; OR FAITH: repentance and trust in the finish work of Jesus living for Him. Ephesians 2:8-10, John 3:36.

He spoke of being forsaken & then triumph as His task as human was complete shedding His perfect blood for the forgiveness of sins to all who repent believing in Him. His body was thirsty. And last of His reunion with the Father. Matthew 27:46; Luke 23:34, 43, 46; John 19:26-28, 30; Mark 15:34
✝️ 5-7-20, Sins □ Jesus Harshly Condemns; He said, “God knows our hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
