CONFUSED about the WORLD?

 


JESUS assures us:

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.


Confused about how the world is?

Don't be.

It's just being true to who it serves.

Instead, find comfort in FOUR things:


1. GOD loves us.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.


2. The Word of God -- JESUS, SCRIPTURE -- stands forever.

Isaiah 40:8

King James Version

8 The grass withereth, 

the flower fadeth: 

but the word of our God 

shall stand for ever.


3. JESUS is unchanging.

Hebrews 13:8

King James Version

8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, 

and to day, 

and for ever.


4. JESUS has defeated the devil at the CROSS.

Hebrews 2:14

King James Version

14 Forasmuch then as the children 

are partakers of flesh and blood, 

he also himself likewise took part of the same; 

that through death he might destroy him 

that had the power of death, 

that is, the devil;


Don't expect the world to make things clear for you.

It was coded to keep you in the dark, for it loves darkness.

It has a different lord.

Let JESUS light your way instead.

John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, 

saying, 

I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me 

shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.


What the world withholds isn't important anyway.

Only the truth of God remains.

Scripture will be fulfilled.

Revelation 22:10-15

King James Version

10 And he saith unto me, 

Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: 

for the time is at hand.

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: 

and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: 

and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: 

and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, 

I come quickly; 

and my reward is with me, 

to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, 

the beginning and the end, 

the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, 

that they may have right to the tree of life, 

and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, 

and sorcerers, 

and whoremongers, 

and murderers, 

and idolaters, 

and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.


Time to make a stand now.
