"Everything is going to be Alright"
No matter what you are feeling, experiencing, or going through today, I can tell you that Everything is going to be alright.
“How long, O Lord, holy and true, how long until you avenge our blood?”
"I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony. 10 They shouted to the Lord and said, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?” 11 Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been."(Revelation 6:9 ESV)
The question is, “When is there going to be justice for what’s happened to us?”
God’s answer is, “Rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.” (V 11)
He will make it right.
He will redeem them.
He will vindicate them—and not just vindicate them,
He will put them on thrones with Christ to rule the nations.
How many today are crying out to God, “When are you going to give me justice?”
When are you going to answer my prayer?
When are you going to draw my children to You?
Question, “How long, O Lord?”
The Ultimate message of the Bible is that God makes everything RIGHT.
Genesis 1:1, In the Beginning God created the Heaven’s and earth.
Revelation 22:7, “And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
The Bible ends with this glorious scene of final reward. The final story of Revelation, the New Jerusalem and the city and all things made new. (Revelation 22)
1. This is a TRUTH for your FAITH to lock on.
Genesis 18:25, Far be it from you to do such a thing, to put the righteous to death with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be that from you! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?”
Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV, For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
2. This is why you can be faithful now, because you know the the end of the story.
Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV), Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Mark 10:28, Then Peter began to say to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You.” 29 So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife[a] or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, 30 who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life.
In the book Revelation John is saying: “People, you’re doing this—great. Keep it up. Be faithful, overcome, and here’s your reward.”
I can have confidence and encouragement now.
I can worship God now.
I can endure against all opposition
If Christianity is outlawed, if a gun is stuck to my head, if I’m in prison) because I can know that he will make it right.
This is the message to the Church for every generation in whatever situations they find themselves in.
3. A TRUE BELIEVER HAS AN . . ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE OF LIFE.
Hebrews 12:1-4 ESV, Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. 4 In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.
Romans 8:18 MES, “I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times.”
John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
That is STILL the MOST POWERFUL TRUTH EVER SPOKEN it will RING for all ETERNITY for those who Receive Christ, Follow Christ. . . Because:
It will be ALRIGHT All of it!
Blessings to you,
