You have a Message? Your Future? Joy!
For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Isaiah 55: 12
Joy: (Hebrew): simchah: blithesomeness or glee, (relig. or festival) Exceeding (-ly), gladness, joy (fulness), mirth, pleasure, rejoice (ing).
One of the first miracles in Jesus’ ministry involved a marriage feast, and can you imagine the wonderful rejoicing of the saints when the saints go marching in? So, even though the saints, those who have repented of their sins and believed in the Lord Jesus Christ that He is the Son of God and that he came in the flesh, died on the cross for our sins, and arose from the dead on the third day, go through challenges and face hardships. The good news is we have hope that joy will be in our future because the Lord is with us. He has already faced the challenges of life and overcame the world by faith so He is a great guide for navigating the seas of life. He also has gone before the saints to prepare a place for us that where He is we may be also. He bare our sins in His own body on the tree that we being dead to sins should live unto righteous. He is our righteousness and our redemption as we have been purged from old sins so we can hopefully see a far off. In other words, God has been working a master plan and purpose for your future before you ever knew He was at work because He first loved us. The good work He has begun in you He is able to perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. So, much joy is in the believers future. The believer in Jesus will also be led forth with peace, and creation claps its hands and sings before the believers as they walk into their wonderful future with their Savior. Whosoever calleth on the name of the Lord shall be saved the bible teaches. This is a free call but it cost the Lord everything and He did it so you would be able to enter into the joy of the Lord. He loves and adores you. He created you and has peace for you today, not as the world gives peace. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Jesus: He which is, and which was, and which is to come has joy unspeakable and full of glory as we yield our lives to Him. God’s chosen people the children of Israel have faced many obstacles. However, even though terrorist attempt to rain down fiery missiles upon their cities their defenses are in place. The same way the shield of faith quenches all the fiery darts of the enemy. Remember Joy is in your future if He is on your side because He is already there.
