Hope Of The World

In the midst of growing darkness, and in recognition of our readers who are embedded in locations of great persecution - I felt strongly compelled to post this song. I believe it must be intended to reach someone today - I have no idea who or why, but whoever this is intended for, I hope it gives you strength and courage in the realization of who is really in control of things.

Maranatha brother or sister - it won't be long now. Cling to the hope that Christ Jesus has given us. I believe we need to be uplifted in the promises of Jesus and the lyrics offered below may do the trick as we contemplate the majesty and glory of our Lord and Savior - Jesus - I pray that this will uplift those who need a boost today. God Bless you brothers and sisters, with whom I will spend eternity. Personally, I'm ready to get this party started and leave this cesspool called earth. Who's in?

The second two (now three....sorry, I couldn't resist:) are on me:

Below is today's parting scripture to contemplate, especially for those facing daily, intense persecution - we're all praying for you brothers and sisters. We will see you soon:

Matthew 5: 

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

He said:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Beautiful and encouraging! Scott, you are a kind soul who is encouraging many. I am sure there are many like myself that read this a lot and don't always post a comment, just know that what you are doing and what you have done has made a difference in the life of God's children <3 God Bless

It will be interesting to see how God will care for identifying/organizing folks at the marriage supper of the lamb. Maybe we will have name tags or maybe he will have someone announce that all the Prophecy Update friends will meet Thursday evening at 6:00 PM over by the Tree of Life.

Actually I am sure there be a whole new dimension for us to experience that will blow our present way of conducting business out of the water.

Can't wait!

See you all soon. :)

Sadly enough, wall street bulls are
back, dow up ALMOST 100. It would
appear that the drop yesterday was
a fake.

But I MUST BE A REALIST, rally is
rally and this means that UNCERTAINTY is again introduced
into the picture.

DOW highs on 22 MAY 2013 may YET be

and if that happens, then it could

we will see.

I was wrong about 13 JUNE, quite
sure of it. The market makes
people humble quickly....yet BULLS
are not even close to humble, not

David God Bless. I don't know how you do the midnight shift. My sister was a hospital nurse her whole career and she worked the midnight shift pretty much the entire time. You have my respect.

Yes I love that Mercy Me song too. I thing we will spend the first 10,000 years completely amazed at God's creativity. We simply have no idea what he has planned for his children!

Alice said...

Scott, thank you for the music and Scripture! It truly blessed me!

And just think... Soon and very soon we will all be singing a NEW song!!!

Scott said...

Good point Alice! :) - a new song as well....

I love the passages in Rev 19 which show us all celebrating Christ's return to earth for his 1,000 year reign. The really cool thing about that is - the apostle John saw US - all of US - the Church Saints there in Heaven - including you and me. what an awesome thought

WV ---- Im doing night work about one and a half years now, i don't mind coz i can take my mp3 player with me and listen to people like Chuck Missler, Charlie H Campbell, Chuck Smith and others. I have learned so much working nights, i could never bring my mp3 in on the day shift as i would not be aloud to have it.
God Bless..
