Count On It (by Dr. David Jeremiah)
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
When you read or watch The Chronicles of Narnia or The Lord of the Rings, you know that what you're watching isn't reality- that it's fiction created to entertain and to convey a message. Unfortunately, too many people - even Christians - view prophecies about the future that way.
Think about it: Millions of Christians being removed from planet earth instantly; a one-world ruler gaining power before being assassinated and coming back to life; cataclysmic natural events in the heavens and on earth; Jesus Christ appearing on a white horse in the sky, accompanied by millions of saints and angels - sometimes people view these happenings like science fiction: They've never happened before, so it's unlikely they'll happen in the future. But you have to ask whether your doubts can stand up against the words of Jesus Christ and the apostle Paul. They both said, in essence, "Count on it. The future of the world is as certain as the past."
If you are not confident that your doubts are stronger than Jesus' and Paul's declarations, consider recommitting yourself to the trustworthiness of Scripture.
God promises to keep His people, and He will keep His promises. Charles Spurgeon
Thanks to Wendy Fury, I will be posting the Twelve Commandments... one each day. The pictures are adorable and the "commandments" are good. Today: I've made up my mind to be happy; it's a choice I make. It's payday Friday here and I love the simple task of passing out checks and greeting the people with a smile and a kind word (and candy today).
