A Day Without Tears!
Have you ever cried, and it was not because of the onions? Or have you lost a loved one or wrecked your car? Truth is, we all shed tears. Life events can be emotional.
In the Bible, Hezekiah cried before he died. Esther cried while pleading her case before the king. And then there was the woman in Luke 7:38, who washed the feet of Jesus with her tears. Did you know that God has collected all of our tears in a bottle? (Psalm 56:8)
But I have good news. A day is coming when God will wipe away all tears (Revelation 21). Hurtful experiences here on earth will vanish when we enter the Presence of Jesus. O happy day!
Have you thought much about Heaven? Do you have family and friends there? What is Heaven like? The Apostle Paul tried to describe what he saw during his celestial experience in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Paul proved that it is impossible to describe the indescribable and to explain the unexplainable. The Apostle John had the same difficulty as he tried to detail what he saw in Heaven. Using human terms to explain the miraculous was impossible. Finally, John quoted Jesus in Revelation 21:5 who said, “Look, I am making everything new!”
The Heaven God created is more amazing than going from the quill to the Gutenberg press. In contemporary terms, its’ like leaping from the yellow pad to a computer. Heaven is more than a paradigm shift. It is an entirely pristine creation! Not like anything you can imagine or conceive.
As Cordie Bridgewater wrote: “In heaven no drooping nor pining, No wishing for elsewhere to be; God’s light is forever there shining, How beautiful heaven must be!”
Because Heaven is a supernatural creation, we must try to adjust to God’s answers to our questions. Have you ever asked, “This world is so bad, why doesn’t God do something about it?” Well, dear one, God did do the best He could when He sent Jesus to the earth.
Have you ever said that you have nothing to live for? Well, dear one, actually you do. Heaven alone will be worth it all. And then, you will see Jesus, the One who gave His all for you.
The truth is, God is working on this old world, and providing strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow. Be encouraged today. God has everything under control.
Next week, I will share more thoughts about heaven. But “until then, my heart will go on singing. Until then, with joy I’ll carry on. Until the Day, my eyes behold that City, until the Day, God calls me home!” (Stuart Hamblen)
THANK YOU to those who faithfully send in funds each month to keep this ministry in operation. The high cost for WEB hosting and other expenses surrounding this ministry keep rising quickly. If more of you could begin to send in financial support weekly, monthly, or as you are able, this will relieve some of the pressure. Please pray about this need. Thanks and God bless you!

The Lord always keeps his promises
Psalm 145:13-20 NLT - The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does. The Lord helps the fallen and lifts those bent beneath their loads. The eyes of all look to you in hope; you give them their food as they need it. When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing. The Lord is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness. The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them. The Lord protects all those who love him, but he destroys the wicked.
Prayer: Dear Lord - Knowing that you keep your promises calms my fears. You are gracious and righteous. If I have needs, you will provide. Help me to keep my promises to you, and to believe and rest in you. In the name of Jesus I pray.
Therefore, comfort each other and edify one another.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
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.
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 >>>>
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.
Romans 8:26 ESV

The Apostle Peter is giving a good word to Believers who are burdened down with the persecutions of the day. It was not easy to live for Christ then, and done correctly, it is not easy to stand for Christ today.
Peter wrote in 1 Peter 5:6 KJV – “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.” The first two words hurt. Few people can humble themselves. But this is the plan of God for us to please Him. The Hand of God represents His authority and leadership. We are to relinquish our pride and allow God to lead.
If we submit to Him, we will find that He will raise us up for respect. Of course, nothing is guaranteed in this life. We may never know notoriety or acclaim on this earth. It is fleeting anyway. But certainly, in the life to come we will be exalted with Him in glory.
We are to be faithful to God and to wait patiently before Him, with the spirit of humility and steadfast love. James 4:10, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you!”
