Persevere, Brothers and Sisters!

Hard times are coming. We haven’t seen anything yet. They are happening as we speak and it is going to get worse. We had better be digging into God. Our foundation must be upon The Rock or we won’t make it when it gets really tough. If we can barely stand now, what will happen to us when everything around us is failing? Now is the time to prepare. We must not wait. It is no time to be caught up in this world and it’s ways.

We have some encouraging words from the book of Hebrews.

Let us draw near to God (Heb.10:22)
Let us hold on firmly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful (vs.23)
Spur one another on to love and good deeds (vs.24)
Meet together with other believers and encourage one another, all the more because we do see the Day approaching (vs.25)

Don’t deliberately keep on sinning, why? Because if you do, then there remains no more sacrifice for you sins, only the Judgment (vs 27) (Remember this is written to believers!)
If you are deliberately sinning, you are trampling the Son of God under your feet. You are treating the blood of the covenant that set you apart as an unholy thing. You are insulting the Spirit of grace (vs.29)

Remember those earlier days after you had received the light (after you were first saved). Reminisce of those days (vs 32) Look to those days and find encouragement!
Don’t throw away your confidence. Don’t loose it. We must have confidence, especially for what lies ahead! You will be rewarded (vs 35)

YOU NEED TO PRESEVERE! Why? So that when you have done God’s will, you will receive what he has promised (vs 36)
We must live by faith, not by sight. If we shrink back (not live by faith) God will not be pleased with us (vs 38)
Those believers who shrink back will be destroyed. But we are not those, right? We are those who believe and are saved (vs 39)
Amen!

    Thank you for the encouraging words. So much of what we see around us is garbage and it’s good to know that there is a fellow thinker out there in the blogosphere!

    Keep up the good work.

    Praise God brother!

    I think a lot of people’s foundations are being shaken and I agree, things will probably get much worse before they get better. I believe that judgment is beginning and God will be doing mighty things to try and wake people up to the false security they have invested so much of their lives in.

    Thanks for telling the truth. I agree with joyous life, it’s encouraging to see others standing for the Word and not what man says! God bless you and hopefully we’ll get to connect soon.
