Daily Devotional, Year 2 – DECEMBER 29

Come Out of Her, My People! Part 37: “Up Into The Promised Land!” CONTINUED

.

.

.

.

.

In the not too distant future, this sad world will come to its final end.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Teachings_of_Jesus_38_of_40._the_rapture._one_in_the_field._Jan_Luyken_etching._Bowyer_Bible.gif

.

And for those who persevere through the coming, “Time of Jacob’s Trouble”, there will be the final reward of entering into the Promised Land, which God has prepared for all them that love Him.

.

And it’s a wonderful land, in which the everlasting hills will resound with the joyful noise of laughter and of singing, and of distant bells ringing in triumph of life-everlasting!

HOW SHOULD WE PREPARE?

.

.

Yes, He is calling us out of Babylon, the world.

.

And He is wanting us to purify our hearts from all the Babylonish confusion which we once thought to be, “normal”, and renew our minds with the pure knowledge of goodness, which all the rest of His universe lives by.

.

A LITTLE WHILE LONGER!

 

.

Yes, this Planet in Rebellion has almost come to its final judgment.

.

And though we cannot predict exactly how much longer we must remain here, we do believe that it will NOT be hundreds of years like the Tribulation of the Dark Ages.

.

God will cut short this present Tribulation, for the sake of His Elect.

.

.

.

.

.

CHRIST’S LIFE TO BE OUR LIFE

.

And so, as His faithful followers, let us not think that the forsaking of the ways and wares of this Babylonish world is an undue burden.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

No, but let’s remember that Christ came and lived in this world, entirely in harmony with the principles of Heaven. And He tells us, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life!” Yes, the life of Jesus is to be our life!

.

Jesus is the light of this world! And He says…“he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12

.

And so, to come out of Babylon, simply put is, to walk, even as He (Jesus) walked.” 1st John 2:6

A COMPLETE EXODUS

.

Yes, this is the great commission which God has given us: to purify our hearts and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgconform our lives to His life.

.

And the call is now going out for His people to finish up this work, by making a complete Exodus away from the Babylonish world.

.

Oh no, we must still live here, and work, and continue to provide for our families.

.

But we are to continue here even as Christ walked in this world: in complete conformity to the principles of Heaven.

“RIVERS of PLEASURES FOR EVERMORE!”

Psalm 16:11

.

And though walking as Jesus walked naturally results in forsaking so much of this present selfish world.

.

But God is not an austere God!

.

No, the pleasures of Heaven are much greater and far more satisfying than the selfish little pleasures of this desperately wicked world!

.

Listen… “They (the Redeemed) shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house; and Thou shalt make them drink of the river of Thy pleasures.” Psalm 36:8  

.

Does, this above verse sound austere?

.

Not at all!

.

LET’S HURRY ALONG…

.

And so, dear Stranger & Pilgrim! Let’s use our remaining time here to good account!

.

Let’s continue to hide His Word in our hearts, and shun all fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, perfecting holiness in the fear of the Lord.

.

And let’s count it all joy when God burns away each and every one of our cherished idols, knowing that He is molding us into His glorious image!

.

And let’s get excited that soon, very soon we will finally enter into that wonderful Promised Land, where all sorrow and sighing will be replaced by joy and gladness forevermore!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

ETERNITY NOT A PUFFY LITTLE CLOUD!

.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish” Proverbs 29:18

.

In the beginning, God placed our first parents in a beautiful garden. But as a result of sin, this world lost much of its beauty. The curse has marred, to a great extent, the pristine condition of nature.

.

But there are perhaps many, who are under the impression, that God’s redeemed will spend all eternity sitting on a puffy little cloud, strumming a harp. Nothing could be further from the truth! “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:” Revelation 21:1

.

Do we really imagine that the same God who created that incredible garden for our first parents, would then put us through all this sorrow and hardships of this life, only to now stick us in some boring situation, for all eternity? Such people don’t know God nearly well enough.

.

The beauty and innocent joys of this present world, are just a faint reflection of what awaits all those who persevere on the upward pathway to that Celestial City of God.

.

.

.

.

.

.

LET’S CATCH A VISION OF THAT PROMISED LAND

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wildpferde_Tripsdrill.jpg

.

So Signs Of Heaven encourages the reader to begin to get a vision of the New Heaven and New Earth, and begin to get excited about it. When we hear the cry of a new born baby, or the innocent laughter of little children. When we see a little forest creature having fun, or we enjoy a walk along the sand at the ocean, and hear the majestic roar of the crashing waves. These, and the many other joys of life were created by the One who has also gone to prepare an even more beautiful place for us to live. He knows our needs, and will provide a place: a far more wonderful home than this sin-cursed Earth!

.

And when we finally cross that river, and we stand together on the shores of that world to come, we will look in amazement at what He has in store for us there. And then we will know for certain, that “His mercy endures forever”, because “God is love”!
