Many Strands Challenge ~ Seeking God’s Wisdom for 2014 ~ Day 85

Seeking God's Wisdom - Day 85

Today’s Assignment ~ Make sure that you have your prayer journal with you as you complete each day’s reading.  You are going to want to keep track of the verses that are resonating with you, as you read.

1. If you have not already done so, answer the questions in this blog-post;

https://heisourstrongtower.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/many-strands-challenge-seeking-gods-wisdom-for-2014/

If you have answered them…review your answers prior to reading today’s assignment.

2. Say a prayer asking God to reveal Himself to you through His word.

3. Read Revelation 21-22 and as you read, highlight verses that are speaking to your heart and reflect on these questions…

• What is the main point of this portion?

• What does God – Father, Son or Holy Spirit – reveal of himself?

• What insight am I given about myself and into my life situation? Is there an example of a warning to heed? A promise to claim?

• What does Christ require of me now, in thought, word or action?

A reflection on today’s reading…

We made it!!!  We will be reading the last two chapters of the New Testament today.  I am so proud of us for persevering through the past couple of months and finishing strong.  Congratulations friends…we did it!  On to what spoke to me in today’s reading…

5 “And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. 7 All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

8 “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Revelation 21:5-8

The other day I posted to my personal page; “Either I am with God and the truth that is found in the Bible or I am against God…there is not a third option!!!”

I believe Revelation 21:5-8 agrees with what I shared.  There are two groups, those who are victorious will be God’s children and He will be their God.  And then there is the other group. Cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars…their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

No matter how much some may wish for, or fool themselves into believing in, a third option…there are only two choices.  For all who BELIEVE there is a promise to become a child of God and for all those who reject, dispute, refuse, deny, discard, dismiss, disregard, forget, neglect and ignore God…there is a promise of eternal damnation.

Friends, we are sinners who has been saved by grace.  It is only through God’s mercy on our souls that we will fall into the first group, not because of anything we have done, but because of what Jesus did!

Jesus is who the New Testament is all about!!  Who He is and what He did for you and for me!

Come back tomorrow for one more assignment on Seeking God’s Wisdom for 2014!

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
