Heb. 10:25 “... let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
from Elmer and Eleanor Enlow: September 1995
WE HAVE COME INTO A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF WEALTH!!
This happened over 60 years ago “ before we knew each other!
We were transferred from the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of God.
We were born again, made new creatures in Christ Jesus and children of God.
We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ, destined to be changed into the likeness of Christ.
Christ lives in us, and so does God the Father.
Our sins are forgiven and we are robed in the righteousness of Christ — God sees us that way. Unworthy though we are, we are growing in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We were transferred from the road to hell to the road to heaven, and made possessors of eternal life.
If we should die, our spirits would go immediately into the presence of the Lord. If Jesus comes first, we would be caught up to meet the Lord in the air, our bodies instantly changed into the likeness of Christ’s resurrection body. We would be forever with the Lord.
In heaven there will be no sickness, suffering, pain, death, devil, demons, rebels, sin or sorrow. We will be in new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. In God’s presence there is fullness of joy, and there will be pleasures forevermore, as we serve Him with gladness of heart.
Meanwhile we have many exceedingly great and precious promises: the Lord’s presence, joy, peace, provision, guidance, strength, help, victory and blessing in the midst of trials, etc., etc., etc.
All of this and more became ours when we trusted in Christ Who died for our sins and rose again. We gladly surrendered our lives to Him and are trusting in what He did for us, not in what we do. Salvation is the Gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast.
We are full of praise to God for His mercy and grace to us in Christ Jesus for the tremendous riches that are ours, and desire to share them with others who desire to take the same route we have taken.
