OK, for today's lesson Brother Bob asks my friends everywhere Are you rejoicing about the blessed hope? The picture above tells us what the blessed hope is at Titus 2:13 saying Looking for that blessed hope (that is) the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ (when Jesus appears in the clouds to meet the caught up living and dead in Christ saints with eternal blessings). Right now get saved, repent, stop sinning, make Jesus God of your life, and daily believe that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again and become a saint rejoicing in the blessed hope.
Friends all over this earth, we should all be looking for this blessed hope every second of the day, rejoicing that Jesus could soon gloriously appear in the clouds, catching up saints to Jesus to leave this wretched earth and receive peace with our Lord Jesus forevermore. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 promises For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Today multitudes of people do not rejoice in this blessed hope. Most people love this world more than Jesus. They want to enjoy and stay with their money, mansions, palaces, gold, and silver on this earth instead of getting caught up to live in eternal peace with Jesus in the clouds. These people don't want to leave their earthly wealth. I have news for these unbelievers in Jesus as God; 2 Peter 3:10 says the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Only the Word, Jesus, and what we do for Jesus will last forever. Jesus said at Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Romans 5:1-2 tells us to rejoice in the blessed hope of Jesus' soon appearance in the clouds to meet His saints with eternal peace. This scripture says Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God ( note Romans 5:2 tells us to rejoice in the blessed hope of Jesus' soon glorious return and appearance as God in the clouds). Friend reading this anywhere, Are you rejoicing in this blessed hope? Just the thought that Jesus could appear any second where saints leave this sin cursed world should make anyone rejoice and leap for joy. It's so much better to be with Jesus than on this earth in the most expensive mansion with billions of dollars.
Alright, let's see some blessings saints receive if they look for the blessed hope of Jesus' soon appearance in the clouds. Take time to say Philippians 3:20-21 pictured above For our conversation is in heaven, from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (looking for the blessed hope of Jesus' appearance in the clouds). Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able also to subdue all things unto Himself.
We should all rejoice while we look for the blessed hope when Jesus will soon change our vile bodies to be fashioned like unto His glorious body. When the saints meet Jesus in the clouds during the blessed hope and receive glorious bodies, no one will be blind, deaf, lame, or dumb; The hospitals and funeral homes will no longer exist because there will be no more sickness or death with our Lord Jesus during His 1000 year millenial reign on earth and in the kingdom forevermore.
Rejoice and say Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing; for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. Also say Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.
OK, let's see what else occurs when a saint rejoices and looks for the blessed hope. According to 1 John 3:2-3 pictured above if anyone looks for the blessed hope of Jesus' soon return to earth in the clouds to meet and bless His saints, they will want to live a holy pure life on this earth. The scripture says Beloved, now are we the sons of God and it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when He shall appear (in the clouds) we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is; And every man that hath this hope (the blessed hope) in him, purifieth himself, even as He is pure. Wow, whenever someone rejoices and looks for the blessed hope, they stop sinning and become holy, sanctified, and pure.
Brother Bob tells all my friends everywhere don't let Him (Jesus) catch you with your work undone. If you live every second rejoicing and looking for the blessed hope that Jesus could return in the clouds the next moment, you'll become holy, sanctified, and pure. Unfortunately, most people today are hobknobbing around with all the sins of the day; buying lottery tickets, shooting dice, playing poker, shacking up, committing adultery, taking drugs, and drinking whiskey. These sinners practice sin constantly with no shame. Saints can sin but they don't practice sin like lost unbelievers in Jesus as God. 1 John 3:6 says Whosoever abideth in Him (Jesus) sinneth not (these are saints who are ashamed when they sin and do not practice sin when they look for the blessed hope Jesus); whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him (these are unbelievers who don't know Jesus is God who constantly practice sin with no shame).
The bible warns us not to commit the same sins done by the children of Israel during the days of Moses. Their sins and punishment were written for examples that we should not lust after evil things. 1Corinthians 10:7 tells us Neither let be ye idolaters, as were some of them, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples; and they are written for our admonition upon whom the ends of the world are come. Friends, heed these examples; remember avoid the punishment that the people received during the days of Moses by looking joyfully for the blessed hope which makes saints holy, sanctified, pure, and blessed with Jesus.
Alright, as we all rejoice and look for the blessed hope, you might ask When is the Lord Jesus coming back? Brother Bob says the answer is in a little while. Hebrews 10:36-37 promises For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. for yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
Jesus is coming back in a little while. I don't know how long a little while is but it won't be long now. You better get ready friends all over this earth; Jesus is coming back soon. Jesus said at 2 Corinthians 6:2 I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee, behold, now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation.
A STORY ABOUT A BLESSED 100 YEAR OLD WOMAN
There was a 100 year old lady that always told every preacher
That's the best preaching I ever heard
One Sunday after this woman again told the preacher
That's the best sermon I ever heard
Someone in the congregation yelled
She says that to everyone
Do you think she's telling the truth?
The preacher replied Yes
My preaching's getting better all the time
