Early in scripture we read of the promise God made to Abraham that he would be the father of many nations, and it is throughout all these generation’s that God has prepared a people known as the children of Abraham all of which we are the seed of Abraham. It is through repenting and turning to Christ there will be a people innumerable that has been redeemed back to God by Christ! “And they sung a new song, saying,, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests; and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy i the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and glory, and blessing”.(Revelation 5:9-12).
We can see now that God is renewing the earth daily by tornadoes, mudslides, typhoons, and fires and before anyone says this is not true and weather has nothing to do with God then reading Nahum 1:3…….Job 37:11-14……Psalm 18:11-15…….Psalm 148:8…….May help. As this world passes with fervent heat (2 Peter 3:7-13), the new heaven and earth will be a place where nothing will defile, pervert, or twist the word of God any longer as it will be a place of true worshipping of a Sovereign God and his Christ that man lived for and will forever praise! Jesus said we are to overcome as he did, and by doing so we will be counted worthy to be of those who will be resident’s of the New Jerusalem “Bu ye are come unto Mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect. And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel”.(Hebrews 12:22-24).
If we live our lives as God expects a Christian to do then we know to overcome as Christ our Saviour also did! Anything worth having is well worth the effort it takes to get it, and persecution is many times the way a Christian acquires heaven. “But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches”.(Revelation 2:25-29).
Jesus said of all the calamity that will be upon the earth before his return, we are to endure and fight the good fight of faith. Times will be chaotic but we are not to be troubled for he is our Sabbath rest and we need to learn to meditate upon the word and be prepared for his return! May we live our lives worthy to reign with the King Of Kings and Lord Of Lords one day!
