OUR times are in GOD's HAND

 

Philippians 1:6

King James Version

6 Being confident of this very thing, 

that he which hath begun a good work in you 

will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:


What is your destiny?

Would you really know it?

Where would you find truth about it?

If you're not born again, JESUS commands you become born again.

That you may be born of the SPIRIT, and understand the ways of SPIRIT.

The TRUE born again doesn't divine the future.

Our fate, our lives, our work, our friends, our families, are in GOD's HAND alone.

Psalm 31:15

King James Version

15 My times are in thy hand

deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, 

and from them that persecute me.


SCRIPTURE -- the WORD of GOD -- testifies of it.

GOD, in the OLD TESTAMENT, said:

Isaiah 46:9-11

King James Version

9 Remember the former things of old: 

for I am God, 

and there is none else; 

I am God, 

and there is none like me,

10 Declaring the end from the beginning, 

and from ancient times the things that are not yet done

saying, 

My counsel shall stand, 

and I will do all my pleasure:

11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, 

the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: 

yea, 

I have spoken it, 

I will also bring it to pass; 

I have purposed it, 

I will also do it.


Isaiah 55:11

King James Version

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: 

it shall not return unto me void, 

but it shall accomplish that which I please, 

and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.


Jeremiah 1:5

King James Version

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; 

and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee

and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.


Jeremiah 29:11-13

King James Version

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, 

saith the Lord, 

thoughts of peace, 

and not of evil, 

to give you an expected end.

12 Then shall ye call upon me, 

and ye shall go and pray unto me, 

and I will hearken unto you.

13 And ye shall seek me, 

and find me, 

when ye shall search for me 

with all your heart.


JESUS, in the NEW TESTAMENT, said:

John 6:37-40

King James Version

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; 

and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.

neither shall any man pluck them 

out of my hand.

which gave them me,

and no man is able to pluck them 

out of my Father's hand.

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.

Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God 

as a little child 

shall in no wise enter therein.

wait for it; 

because it will surely come

it will not tarry.
