I have trouble in my life. Jesus promised me that I would. He also conquered death and I get to share in His new life with Him.
God has decided the help me get fit for the Kingdom where Jesus is King of God’s country. How do I get fit? Can I do it without training. Resistance training is a good example. I stress my muscles so they can grow. I want to be fit. I want to grow.
It isn’t easy though. It requires real discipline. It means I have to train, even on days when I don’t feel like it. The power of the Holy Spirit is here to help me.
Justice is on the way and will not be denied.
So I have to suffer some now. It feels like a big deal but is it really. God’s justice is on the way. Justice is coming. It will come in God’s time but justice will come. I can count on it.
Jesus will appear coming from heaven in a blaze of fire. Jesus will come with His angels. Jesus will even the score. There are many who think that there rebellion against God is going to work. It won’t. God haters and God deniers are being warned. Yet, they still rebel and mock God. God will settle the accounts with all them that are giving us, the followers of Jesus, a bad time.
His coming will be the break I’ve been waiting for. Those who refuse to know God and refuse to obey the Message will pay for what they’ve done. Eternal exile from the presence of the Master and his splendid power is their sentence. But on that very same day when he comes, he will be exalted by his followers and celebrated by all who believe.
This is good news. Justice is on the way and will not be denied.
