|MOST ASSUREDLY I SAY TO YOU, THAT YOU WILL WEEP AND LAMENT BUT THE WORLD WILL REJOICE AND YOU WILL BE SORROWFUL BUT YOUR SORROW WILL BE TURNED INTO JOY....John 16:20.|
THE MAJORITY RULES..........FOR NOW!
There are certain times in our life, our Christian lives, that we lament and our sorrow is great and the world goes on rejoicing around us with its superficial, temporary fun and games.
The scriptures call this conduct or conduct of this
KNOWING THAT YOU WERE NOT REDEEMED WITH CORRUPTIBLE
THINGS LIKE SILVER AND GOLD FROM YOUR
RECEIVED BY TRADITIONS
FROM YOUR FATHERS. 1 PETER 1:18.
SO IT WAS THAT THE BEGGAR
DIED AND WAS CARRIED BY THE ANGELS TO ABRAHAM'S BOSOM
THE RICH MAN ALSO DIED AND WAS
The majority may rule for now or at least seem to rule but as Christians, we should always remember that it is not our day yet. Though we have times of rejoicing in CHRIST and JESUS is such a wonderful and awesome friend, a just King and a tender LORD, a sovereign saviour and mighty GOD and helper in time of need we still lament. We low as we go, with the seed of life. 1 Samuel 6:7-12.
These are sobering words, spoken in sincerity that we may not fall away in difficult seasons but remembering our LORDS words we are strengthened and sustained. Psalm 46:1-4.
The remnant will remain
Regardless what comes our way, as followers of the
Lamb of GOD we shall do valiantly, for it is He who shall bring down our enemy
FOR THIS IS A FAITHFUL
FOR IF WE DIED WITH HIM, WE SHALL ALSO LIVE WITH HIM
IF WE ENDURE, WE
SHALL ALSO REIGN WITH HIM
IF WE DENY HIM, HE ALSO WILL DENY US
IF WE ARE
FAITHLESS, HE REMAINS FAITHFUL
HE CANNOT DENY HIMSELF...2 TIMOTHY 2:11-13.
