No Hope?? 12/18/16
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS!!!
Romans 8:24-25 (KJV)
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
The above two Holy Scriptures I, along with my dear friend Ronnie J., MEMORIZED many, many tears ago!!
In fact, we MEMORIZED several whole Chapters of Scripture together!!
What a DIFFERENCE in one' life can be made by KNOWING the Words of God!!
Psalm 119:9-11 (KJV)
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
With "THESE WORDS" we are able to "COMFORT ONE ANOTHER!!!!"
1 Thessalonians 4:18 (KJV)
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
I HATE being or touching on ANYTHING political-but we live in a political world.
A famous politician/celebrity made a disturbing statement last week that I blatantly disagree with-enough to speak out against it.
Beloved, OUR hope is not in man or anything of this life!!!
Psalm 38:15 (KJV)
15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
Psalm 42:5 (KJV)
5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
It would even be foolish for me to say more!!
GOD IS THE JOY AND THE STRENGTH OF MY LIFE!!!!"
When I arose this morning, (PTL for arising AGAIN!), my FB account re-posted my sermon from 12/21/11:
It is hard to believe it has been so long, but I believe that was the year that a dear friend of ours lost ALL of her children PLUS 2 grandchildren and daughter-in-law if a fiery airplane accident!!??
WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT THE LORD!!??
1 Corinthians 15:19 (KJV)
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
TODAY, beloved, IF you find YOUSELF alongside the mighty Apostle Paul, and "DESPAIR OF LIFE, take HOPE IN CHRIST!!!!
2 Corinthians 1:8 (KJV)
8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
Colossians 1:27 (KJV)
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
The KEY to THIS life is:
CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY!!!"
ALWAYS REMEMBER AND KNOW THIS:
Proverbs 13:12 (KJV)
12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
It is not "IF the desire cometh" but "WHEN the desire cometh!!"
PRAISE THE LORD/HALLELUJAH/GLORY TO GOD!!!
GOD BLESS YOU TODAY!
