Theme: WHERE COULD SAFETY BE FOUND?
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 Holy Bible clearly reveals that it is only in the Kingdom of God fully established that mankind would be blessed with everlasting life in perfect peace, safety and happiness by His grace. (Isaiah 33:20; 51:3,11) Those who deny themselves for God’s sake to be doing righteousness now will be rewarded with peace and safety in God’s Kingdom. Apostle John Stated: “…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. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” – Revelation 21:1-5. See also 2 Peter 3:13.
The people of God, therefore, are enjoined to serve Him diligently in truth and righteousness in other to enjoy these bounties by His grace. “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” – 2 Peter 3:11,14. See also Hebrews 12:28.
