John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have an everlasting life.”
God’s business is rebuilding and reconstructing so that He can present to Himself a glorious church which is holy without spot or blemish.
God is doing some things in us. He is doing something new in us…rebuilding our inner man.
But, polishing is painful. The process of removing wrinkles, spots and blemish is painful.
However, the result is good and mighty and glorious.
Old saying: “No pain, no gain.” relates to this…hmm sounds familiar.
Israel’s Restoration Assured…
Ezekiel 36: 16-36 says,
16 Again the word of the Lord came to me: 17 “Son of man, when the people of Israel were living in their own land, they defiled it by their conduct and their actions. Their conduct was like a woman’s monthly uncleanness in my sight. 18 So I poured out my wrath on them because they had shed blood in the land and because they had defiled it with their idols. 19 I dispersed them among the nations, and they were scattered through the countries; I judged them according to their conduct and their actions. 20 And wherever they went among the nations they profaned my holy name, for it was said of them, ‘These are the Lord’s people, and yet they had to leave his land.’ 21 I had concern for my holy name, which the people of Israel profaned among the nations where they had gone.
22 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. 23 I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Sovereign Lord, when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.
24 “‘For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. 25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. 28 Then you will live in the land I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful and will not bring famine upon you. 30 I will increase the fruit of the trees and the crops of the field, so that you will no longer suffer disgrace among the nations because of famine. 31 Then you will remember your evil ways and wicked deeds, and you will loathe yourselves for your sins and detestable practices. 32 I want you to know that I am not doing this for your sake, declares the Sovereign Lord. Be ashamed and disgraced for your conduct, people of Israel!
33 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt. 34 The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. 35 They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.” 36 Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the Lord have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’
The book of Revelation prophesied about The Beast and the False Prophet.
Now, Psalms 91:1 says, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
When calamities and abomination will come upon the face of the earth, we who will live in PEACE, JOY and LOVE in the LIGHT of God shall survive and even surpass these biblical prophesies about the end times. And, then the King of Glory shall come in and bring us unto Himself to dine with Him in the marriage supper.
Then the end will come.
If God is for us, then who can be against us?
ALLOW ME TO SHARE…
Earlier today, while our church service is about to end, one woman who’s a prophet said that while we’re having our worship service, she saw a vision of Jesus coming with His chariot and with holy angels. Then she saw the congregation vowing in the altar with women transformed into like a bride wearing clean garments and instead of holding bouquets of flowers, she saw them holding a candle with fire on its candlestick. She was told then by the Lord that He was doing something in us, to clean us, to purify us to be perfect bride ready to meet Him in His second coming.
To God be the glory!
