Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People
Thank you, Mr. Berendt, this is very wise and encouraging!
Good food for thought, thank you!
Thank you for these wise and encouraging words!
This is the kind of article we all need to read! It puts our focus on the real future, and helps us to put our trust in the only One who will bring lasting peace and happiness. Peter helps us to focus not on our 401 K, 403 B or other retirement funds, but upon the coming kingdom of God. May God hasten that day!
I’m thankful you found the article helpful!
Thank you for the encouragement!
Glad you found the article helpful. You may also find the study guide: “You Can Have Living Faith” helpful, too.
Glad to be of help. Our God is so merciful!
Part two will be posted shorty. Thank for asking!
Thanks, Ben. Thy Kingdom come!
Thank you for your kind words, glad the article was helpful. All the credit for the article goes to God. And may God continue to bless you as you continue in your walk of faith.
To respond to the comments above as to what those who have washed their clothes in the Tribulation (Revelation 7:14) will look like. They too will be fashioned into the image of Christ and God the Father. Indeed, as resurrected saints, we will become sons and daughters of our heavenly Father (2 Corinthians 6: 18). Furthermore, notice these scriptures which show we will be in Christ’s and His Father’s image:
Philippians 3:21: “Who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.”
Psalm 17: 15: “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.”
1 Corinthians 15: 49: “And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear[a] the image of the heavenly Man.”
1 John 3:2: “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
