So, so good!! I often wonder what it’ll be like to live for eternity. No disease 🦠.

No hatred. 😡 No violence.🔫 No murder. No “Deep State” government. The list is long.

Then I remember I shall see Him in all His Glory. And behold Him in the Beauty of His Holiness!!! The thought of it wrecks me!!

I find myself longing for that day. But I know, that I know, I am here at this time in history to war for His kingdom to come and His will to be done on Earth. I have a part to play in bringing a Billion souls to Christ. I was born to be a warrior in the KINGS ARMY. So, by His grace and will, I will occupy until He comes. Amen. Even so, Lord Jesus, come.

Thank you, Pastor John, for reminding and teaching us that it is is God who is able (Greek dunameou) to keep us and present us before His glorious presence without fault and great joy. Before I read your devotional today, I was reading through Matthew and came to 26:64. There Jesus replied to the high priest who adjured Jesus to tell them whether He is the Christ , the Son of God. Jesus said to him, "You have said it; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you shall see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven."(NASB) In my Greek-English New Testament it reads "the Power" (Greek dunameos). The same Greek work is used in the two passages, a verb in Jude, a noun in Matthew. It means "inherent ability; inherent capacity to carry out, power by virtue of one's own ability and resources" (The Discovery Bible Synonym Glossary, Moody, 1987). So it is truly God's own power that keeps us and will present us before His presence. We can relax and rest in His power to get us to His presence in heaven.
