              Moving Day!

                   (Part #2)

Last week, we started a series of articles on the Second Coming of Jesus. In a moment, our bodies will change and we will be transformed! We will move from this natural body to our heavenly, eternal body – Moving Day!

This earthly body has become the focus of such industries as clothing, entertainment, medical, and cosmetics. They hope to cause us to choose their products to make our bodies more attractive and healthy. Many people gauge their self-worth by how they look. Their perceived body image often determines assumed self-image. This is a huge mistake.

While Hollywood idolizes the outward signs of physical attractiveness, God looks on the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). Beauty is vain (Proverbs 31:30), so we are called to pursue the “imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious” (1 Peter 3:4 ESV).

These earthly bodies are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Though medical science has made significant discoveries about the body, God has kept many mysteries to himself. And yet, as amazing as our bodies are, there are limitations physically and spiritually. 

Spiritually, you can enlarge your capacity for the Presence of God. This is a choice that you make. God has charged us to “grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). Why? Because as our spirit and soul grows, the Holy Spirit has more room to fill us, and Christ has more room to reveal Himself to us. 

Physically, this earthly body is too frail for earthly conditions. Our back aches, head hurts, teeth decay, and our knees get stiff. Indeed, life is fragile here. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says, “We have this treasure in jars of clay.” Clay breaks and dissolves.

The Apostle Paul rarely complained when he was imprisoned, beaten, or otherwise persecuted. But he did have one complaint in 2 Corinthians 5:2 (NLT), “While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.”

Paul was looking forward to that moment of transformation (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18), when we drop off this earthly body of pain and sorrow. And on that glorious day, we will be “swallowed up by life!” He longed for the freedom of Heaven. There, we will be free from bodily limitations, sickness, and pain. Gone will be fluctuations that include staring into space, lethargy, frequent drowsiness, and disorganized speech. Death will be no more.

Consider these amazing words by Dottie Rambo: “I have questioned the loss of a loved one. ‘Cause the grave seems so final and cold. But we’ll meet again where death has no vict’ry. In a land where we’ll never grow old. Tears will never stain the streets of that city. No wreaths of death on my mansion door. Teardrops aren’t welcome beyond the gates of Glory. ‘Cause the heart will never break anymore.”

Next week: What will our eternal body be like?

Pray for Uvalde

SCRIPTURE

& PRAYER

Jeremiah 18:1-6 NLT - The Lord gave another message to Jeremiah. He said, “Go down to the potter’s shop, and I will speak to you there.” So I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel. But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. Then the Lord gave me this message: “O Israel, can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand.
Prayer: Dear Lord - All praise to You my Savior and King. The scripture today reminds me that I am in Your hands. This is a far better place to be than being in the hands of any other. Please mold me into a vessel that will bring honor to You alone. Help me to submit in everything. In the name of Jesus I pray. 

BIBLE  PROPHECY

REBUKE!

by David G. Rose

 

In the second letter to the Thessalonians, the Apostle Paul is reminding the church about Last Days teachings regarding the Second Coming of Jesus. He recaps for them the past lessons of the Apostles, and he seems righteously agitated that they could be so easily led astray by false teachers.

Paul states in 2 Thessalonians 2:5 KJV – “Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?” This is a stern rebuke to the Believers who opened their ears to the evil instruction of heresy. Because they failed to keep the faith, Paul gave them a firm scolding in Christian love. 

Paul knew that he would soon pass from the scene. Those who followed were expected to keep the teachings of the Faith true and pure. This is the work of the pastor. They must not be easily swayed when preaching. Remember the charge given to every preacher in 2 Timothy 4:2 KJV, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

Authentic preachers of the Gospel preach the Word of God, not some current best seller. The preacher must not waver according to the whims (seasons) of their congregation, but must “reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and doctrine.”
 

Therefore, comfort each other and edify one another.

1 Thessalonians 5:11

 

Finally....

For stay at home Christians...

We started this ministry with you in mind. Recent reports state that many Christians no longer attend a church. They have been offended, or have to work, or they cannot physically leave their home, and so they stay at home. The coronavirus has closed many churches. 

 

Our heart is to reach out to you with Bible studies, hospital visitation, prayer for the sick, serving the Lord's Supper, counsel, etc. Just call on us and we will be your personal pastor.

 

There is no obligation or membership. When you need personal ministry, click here for more information >>>>

The Ultimate Statistic

I love statistics. In fact, let the record show I am a stat freak. For example, I know the odds of getting a hole-in-one are 1-in-12,000. The chance of you winning the Powerball jackpot is 1-in-292,201,338. The odds you will be audited by the IRS are 1-in-130. And how about this startling stat: Bart Starr never threw 20 touchdown passes in a season for the Green Bay Packers. 

Stats can be interesting, fun, boring, helpful, and misleading. It has been said, “Figures can lie, and liars can figure.” True enough. But there are some statistics that don’t lie and are therefore worth taking a serious look at. 

The ultimate statistic is 10 out of 10 people die. We may not have a diagnosis yet, but we are all terminal. The current average life expectancy is 78 years; that’s only 28,470 days or 949 months. Approximately 150,000 people die every day around the world. The fact is, one of these days you will be part of the 150,000. How do I know? Because of the ultimate statistic – 10 out of 10 people die. You just can’t beat those odds. 

The Bible says, “The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart:” (Isaiah 57:1). Psalm 37:20 tells us, “…the wicked shall perish…”  Numbers 17:12 sums it up, “…Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish.” It is unavoidable, undeniable, inevitable. It is the ultimate statistic. No one gets out alive. 

Hebrews 9:27 says it this way, “It is appointed unto men once to die and then the judgment.”  Given the ultimate statistic and the unbeatable odds, that 10 out of 10 die, perhaps we should be more concerned with the judgment.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:24).

All-day Praise!

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
