Hope is Not Possible in the Faith, Hope and Love Trifecta…Unless Truth Drives that Faith
It is not easy unveiling hope to the hopeless. The hopelessness, in actuality, becomes their hope, just as in the day of Isaiah…..Isaiah 5:20 (ESV) 20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
To try and explain the Victory of an Almighty God and the Glorification of this God through His propagation of a Righteous home for His Bride, according to Scripture….Look to your future as Peter described the corrupted Creation melting away in the Consumng Fire and the New Heavens and New Earth born in Righteousness which Christ brought to the Elect through His Sacrifice and Vanquishing of death…..entropy of corruption to be slowly overcome, and the Reprobate fewer and fewer, as His Righteousness grows in His People and the Creation that GROANS to see the unveiling of the Sons of Glory, the Children of the Father inside the Son….Romans 8:19 (ESV) 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. ….that the unrighteousness of sins’ decay and death be destroyed and Life be Glorified through His Bride, the Elect, the Church…..see the tearing away of the unclean and the unveiling of the eternal home of the Elect advancing to fullness in the increasing Righteousness ….
Isaiah 51:6 (ESV) 6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look at the earth beneath; for the heavens vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and they who dwell in it will die in like manner; but my salvation will be forever, and my righteousness will never be dismayed.
See the time of the 1000 figurative years before His return, of the Glory of Jesus Christ through His Bride, where the sinner will obey through the Law’s ubiquity as it is written in rising fullness on the hearts of the Elect and the nature of Creation itself will begin to receive Righteousness in its bosom with the ferocity of the flesh eaters calmned…….
Isaiah 65:17-25 (ESV) 17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind. 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy, and her people to be a gladness. 19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress. 20 No more shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the young man shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They shall not labor in vain or bear children for calamity, for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the LORD, and their descendants with them. 24 Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall graze together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain,” says the LORD.
…..and in “returning and rest” we await victory in the One Who brought all to be and maintains cohesion of reality’s myriad…..
Colossians 1:15-20 (ESV) 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
May God give His Children Eyes to See and Ears to Hear…..Hope
