“For surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off.”
~ Proverbs 23:18
As sure as the Bible teaches there is a God, a Savior and a need for salvation, the Scriptures teach there is a hereafter. This present world is not all there is. There is another place, another time, which spans all eternity. Each person has an appointment with the hereafter. The Bible describes the hereafter as one of two places: heaven or hell, paradise or perdition, eternal joy or everlasting justice. Where will you be? For those trusting in Jesus Christ, your hope will not be cut off.
“I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore”.
~ Psalm 16:8-11
Prayer Life Pause: Heavenly Father, help me to always set You before me that might heart remains glad and I can rest in the hope of enjoying Your presence and pleasures forevermore. In Jesus; name, amen.
“A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before Him. Thousands upon thousands attended Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened”.
~ Daniel 7:10
Daniel’s apocalyptic vision of God’s final judgment should strike fear in the hearts of those outside the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. Do not be one of the ten thousand times ten thousand who go to stand before our great and final Judge with nothing to plead your case but your own unworthiness. Make it your life’s ambition and supreme concern to cling to the salvation offered only by faith in the Jesus Christ. For once the court is seated, and the books of judgment are open, it will be too late.
Prayer Life Pause: Heavenly Father, this prayer is for all who do not know the redeeming touch of your Beloved Son. May You open their hearts and their souls to receive Your saving grace of eternal life before it is too late. In Jesus’ name, amen.
