Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed by they name
thy Kingdom Come
thy Will be done,
in earth as it is in heaven,
give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive them that trespass against us,
lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil,
for thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever.
This current time is challenging one. One of my dearest friends is very ill. I can’t go into details but i fervently pray to the Lord for his deliverance. This friend is someone very dear to me and has been there all of my life. I really do pray Lord that you will give me the strength I need to support him and to give the doctors and medical professionals all they need to cure him.
It is in these difficult times that I must remind myself that my hope isn’t in this evil fallen corrupt world, but in the world to come. When the Lord Jesus returns He will make all things new. Those who cannot walk will walk. Those who are in chronic pain will be in pain no longer. Those who are enslaved will be set free. Those who hate this current life, this current world and all its corruption and suffering, will be filled with joy and will rejoice in spending eternity in the presence of the Lord their God.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
These are the promises for the Kingdom of Heaven. I simply cannot wait until that day. Amen. Maranatha.
