VerseD: Revelation 21:4

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:4, ESV

God’s people, who trust in the Faithful One, shall find the end of suffering and loss when He renews Creation. We cannot fully comprehend the glory to come nor the bliss of God’s complete presence and peace in that Day.

VerseD: John 16:33

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33, ESV

Christ proved through His resurrection that nothing can stop Him.

This world may beat us down, but through Christ we shall arise on the New Earth in glory. This hope gives us the courage to face whatever comes our way.

VerseD: Ezekiel 36:26

Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
EZEKIEL 36:26, NASB

When we are born again as Christians, God renews our hearts and fills us with His Holy Spirit. And we will know this is true by our newfound devotion for God and His Word, love for the Church, and urgent compassion for the lost.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17, ESV

In Christ, you start over. “Born again” means your soul is cleaned and renewed, and God is changing the way you think, feel, and act.

You are no longer the old you. Walk in the new.

VerseD: Zechariah 2:10

Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for behold, I come and I will dwell in your midst, declares the Lord .
Zechariah 2:10, ESV

Heaven is not some ethereal place where we will live forever.

Christ shall establish His Kingdom on the new Earth, and we will live with God and He with us in this renewed world!

Proverbial Thought finished going through Proverbs on Thursday, but much wisdom and guidance can still be garnered!

It amazes me the number of people who confess belief in Jesus Christ as Savior, yet they remain content to keep living life the same way or in way of “just getting through.”

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
2 Timothy 1:6-7, ESV

 

my life is moving
i try to follow
but what is missing
i still feel hollow
it is Your Spirit
moving inside me
that i have needed
fill me completely
i can do nothing
without Your power
make me a new thing
one that shares Your heart

Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 10/13/2013

Here is your reminder to get on over to Proverbial Thought for some daily wisdom!

Perhaps you have heard that time happens in cycles. Everyone goes through cycles. The earth goes through cycles. Our lives go through cycles. The writer of Ecclesiastes pointed this out 3000 years ago (and chapter 3 was made into a song by “The Byrds” in 1965!)

One of the cycles that is evident throughout history is God doing something amazing, people glorifying Him, and then people falling away from God. This happens in many ways, and the most prevalent in the past 2000 years is focusing too much on rules and regulations within the Church/Judaism.

Therefore, we must always go back to the beginning: GOD. In Jesus Christ, the firstfruits of the new righteousness (1 Corinthians 15), we always have a fresh start. May we seek Him first and always.

 

there is a new thing

God is doing something new

He is going back to the beginning

starting with what looks old

God is sick of the religion

that proliferates His Body

the new thing now needs to come

to bring us back to God

it is time to abandon

everything that gets in the way

it is time to turn to the Son

and His grace and peace
