See the Father (Forever)

“Some day in the soon future, perhaps today(!) we will be leaving our homes and going up to heaven to be with our heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. Still, how many people are planning on staying here, living and surviving beyond Armageddon, not even knowing that there is a heavenly home, a Promised Land filled with spiritual milk and honey that we have been called to inherit? It is in knowing Jesus Christ who is the embodiment of the LORD Jehovah who shows us the way, the life, and the truth, just as Moses taught to the Hebrew race before they left their bondage behind. Christ is the fullest manifestation of Jehovah’s relationship with man, he that hath seen me {said Jesus} hath seen the Father- John 14:9.” ~LMJ~

Exempt You Are ─ Indeed You Are!

For God hath not appointed {called or chosen} us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ– I Thessalonians 5:9. It is truly amazing to me how many born again believers fear the wrath to come because they think that they are going to go through the tribulations that are sure to come. However, and thankfully, bless our God and our Savior because we will be totally exempt from all the wrath to come! Jesus Christ gave his life to deliver the children of God, not only from the wrath to come, but also from the fear of the tribulations and judgments of eternal damnation and the pains of Armageddon. God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, has chosen us to obtain complete salvation and complete wholeness by the accomplished work of our risen Lord and Savior.” ~LMJ~

The Calling of God

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

It would be next to impossible to present the grace of God to others enthusiastically while being fearful about our own future. Today we are bombarded from every direction with unimaginable fears about doomsday, Armageddon, and the wrath of God. These fears have been running rampant for years around the world and have scared people, especially Christian people, half to death. However, most about what people say regarding the future for the Christian believer and the world are, simply put – not true!

I Thessalonians 5:9-10a:
For God hath not appointed {or called} us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us . . .

To be appointed for an office or a position someone needs to call and appoint us. God has called us to Himself even before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4 and I Thessalonians 2:12). Contrary to popular thought, belief, and doctrine, our calling is to obtain salvation rather than wrath. We have the God-given right and privilege of obtaining this calling based entirely on the completed work of our Savior who died for us. In the Greek text, the word saved is sozo and means to be made spiritually whole (through the receiving of the gift of holy spirit), and to be saved from eternal death (into the lake of fire), and judgment (at the last day). Because Jesus gave his life for you and for me, we are truly saved from the wrath to come. Jesus already passed completely through the judgments for us. This is all included and given to us in the calling of God.

I Thessalonians 1:10:
And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Our deliverance from the future wrath is thankfully based on the completed work of our heavenly Father Who raised Christ from the dead. Yes—there will be wrath coming in the future; however, the believers are totally exempt from wrath and will be rescued by “. . . His son from heaven,” who will take us back to heaven with him (I Thessalonians 4:13-18). Not only will we be delivered from the wrath to come but Jesus has also “. . . delivered us from this present evil world (Galatians 1:3-4).” Life with our Savior began by our belief and confession of Romans 10:9-10, and from that moment onward we have the privilege and the responsibility of learning and living in the true grace and calling of God, being made free from any and all of the wrath and judgments to come upon this world. Have a great day, God bless you!
