NO DEAD END

“The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be there, and His servants shall serve Him faithfully. They shall see Him face to face.” –Revelation 22:3-4 On this last day of the Church’s year, in this new millennium, Jesus says, as quoted in the last verses of the Bible: “Remember, I am coming soon!” (Rv 22:7) After Jesus’ final coming, those who have been faithful slaves of Jesus will go to heaven and see the Lord face to face (Rv 22:4). “Never again shall they know hunger or thirst, nor shall the sun or its heat beat down on...

PASSED AWAY

My words will not pass.” –Luke 21:33 To describe death, we say: “He passed away.” “The heavens and earth will pass away” (Lk 21:33; Rv 21:1). “Created things will pass away” (Heb 12:27). “The world with its seductions is passing away” (1 Jn 2:17). “The world as we know it is passing away” (1 Cor 7:31). Almost everything is passing away. All this passing away is a terrible problem for all human beings, for the Lord “has put the timeless” into our heart (Eccl 3:11). Our heart for the timeless is threatened and disturbed by all this passing away. This...

THE FEAST OF FEASTS

“The angel then said to me: ‘Write this down: Happy are they who have been invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.’ ” –Revelation 19:9 In the USA, today is Thanksgiving Day. Many of us will be enjoying the traditional Thanksgiving feast with our families. We hope that this feast will prefigure the ultimate feast, “the wedding feast of the Lamb” in heaven. To accept the Lord’s invitation to His wedding feast, we must make a covenant of love with Him, completely give our lives to the Lord, and have a relationship with Him which transcends marriage. This wedding...

Curiosity or care to change?

Rev 14: 14-19 ; Lk 21: 5-11 When will these things happen? We are more interested in knowing when certain things will happen and curious about predictions and premonitions, than understanding what is the right thing to be done and make the right moves in life at the right time. Mistakenly we postpone the necessary and crucial transformations in life for an opportune time which sometimes does not come at all or it gets too late by the time they come by. The month of November insists on the urgency that is involved in personal conversion and community dedication to...

THANKSGIVING ALL TOGETHER AND FOREVER

“You will be delivered up even by your parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and some of you will be put to death.” –Luke 21:16 Many of you in the USA will be spending Thanksgiving with your families and relatives. As you visit with the family, pray that none of them will betray you and turn you over to the police to be executed for your faith in Jesus. Pray also that you yourself will not turn them in to the authorities when persecution rages against the disciples of Jesus. If we and our families are committed 100% to the Lord,...
