Theme: LOOK UNTO ME AND BE YE SAVED

Text: “And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.” – Isaiah 32:17, 18.

Comment: The Bible gives the understanding that God will destroy the devil and bless and save His people in due time. There is need therefore for patience. The Prophet Isaiah says: “Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.” (Isaiah 35:3,4)  When all wickedness is put away by God and man attains perfection, then paradise will hold sway all over the earth. – Revelation 21:4;  1 Corinthians 2:9.

 

Let us therefore march on with faith that the time will come when all our travails in this world and shall not even “be remembered nor come into mind”. (Isaiah 65:17) David the prophet declared: “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” – Psalm 126:1-6.
