The heavens are telling the glory of God;and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech,and night to night declares knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words;their voice is not heard; yet their voice goes out through all the earth,and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes forth like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,and like a strong man runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,and its circuit to the end of them;and there is nothing hid from its heat.
The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure,
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the LORD is clean,
enduring for ever;
the ordinances of the LORD are true,
and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honeyand drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover by them is thy servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
But who can discern his errors?
Clear thou me from hidden faults.
Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,and innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
Who will rise up to be in Paradise today?
Who will sleep 1,000s of years and be awoken when the twinkling of an eye will occur and the trumpet is blown first on the Mount of Olives to rise to go to Jesus?
Revelations tells us of martyrs who scream for "fairness" are comforted by God, given white robes and put back down to sleep to rise up.
Jesus and St. Stephen forgave what was happening to them and they saw Heaven before they died. Jesus said He would be in Paradise very quickly.
David said goodness and mercy would be the footprints he would leave. And David would dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
Jesus promised us in this life we would have trouble.
And He would overcome.
I'm going with forgiveness. God will call many to leave Heaven and rise up again already having been living the Abundant Life with Jesus.
Believers who have died are resurrected from the grave first - 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18- time the dead receive their new eternal bodies - both physical and spiritual bodies. Their souls are in heaven and at the resurrection return to earth with Jesus to receive the resurrected body. The resurrected body is like Jesus' body after His resurrection. 1 John 3:2.
Forgiveness makes pathways in this life and the next. And it tells one how God feels about whiners. They arrive, invited to arrive, on the late train.
It is a joyous thing in all circumstances to call on Jesus for HELP!
1 Timothy 2:5-6
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.
Father God, Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. Let me be for Jesus and let all other things pale in comparison. Amen.
