Earnest Expectation! 6/10/15
 

Earnest Expectation! 6/10/15

 

 

 

 

Romans 8:19 (KJV)
19  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

 

EARNEST EXPECTATION-from a compound of <G575> (apo) and a compound of kara (the head) and <G1380> (dokeo) (in the sense of watching); intense anticipation :- earnest expectation.

Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

 

INTENSE ANTICIPATION (IN THE SENSE OF WATCHING!)

 

Although God has DELIVERED me from watching the "talking heads" on the nightly cable "news/lies," I still find myself with too much time on my hands during the day.

 

What is that OLD saying?? "Idle time is the devil's workshop!"

 

As I sit watching over Amanda and oftentimes at night when neither she or I can sleep, I turn to my computer out of boredom.

 

There awaits me a "wealth" of news/lies!!!

 

Even FB contains column after column of "news/lies."

 

And just as Michael Corleone said on Godfathers 3:

 

"JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I WAS OUT-THEY PULL ME BACK IN!"

 

As YOU well know, most of the "news/lies" is DEPRESSING!!!

 

Sadly, the long trusted people and institutions we once honored and TRUSTED are no longer what they were and should be.

 

There is SOMETHING about wealth, fame and POWER that changes a man or a woman!

 

How true is the oft quoted phrase:

 

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

 

Most folks do not know the next line of this famous quote:

 

"GREAT MEN (WOMEN) ARE ALMOST ALWAYS BAD MEN (WOMEN)!!!

 

Just as the above quoted Scripture, WE, who await His return WAIT with:

 

INTENSE ANTICIPATION (IN THE SENSE OF WATCHING!)

 

The CREATURE (YOU and I are the CREATED ONES IN HIS IMAGE!)

 

EARNESTLY EXPECT Jesus return and the return to ORDER and true JUSTICE!!!!!!!

 

For US, this world and this life affords little to none satisfaction.

 

David also observed the inequity in THIS world:

 

Psalm 37:35 (KJV)

  
35  I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

 

 

Beloved, does this INEQUITY and LAWLESSNESS also VEX your soul????

 

I could go on and on about all the lies, innuendos and wickedness of man, but instead WE must get our eyes off of this world and look heavenward:

 

Colossians 3:1-2 (KJV)

  
1
 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.   
 

 

2

 Set your af fection on things above, not on things on the earth.

 

 

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE our God LAUGHING at the foolishness of men and women who "THINK" they are in control and power:

 

Psalm 2:1-3 (KJV)

  
1
 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?   
 

 

2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying

 

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  

 

GOD LAUGHS IN THEIR FACES:

 

Psalm 2:4 (KJV)

  
4
 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.   
 

 

Today, may WE, His children and soldiers of His Cross, also laugh, for:  

 

"THE LORD SHALL HAVE THEM IN DERISION!!!!!"

 

DERISION-a primitive root; to deride; by implication (as if imitating a foreigner) to speak unintelligibly :- have in derision, laugh (to scorn), mock (on), stammering.

Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

 

THIS is OUR future and eternal HOPE:

 

Revelation 22:3-5 (KJV)
3  And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:   
 

 

4  And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.    

 

5  And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

 

AMEN AND AMEN!

 

GOD BLESS YOU TODAY AND ALWAYS!!!
