The last rays of light that will fall on this darkened earth just before the end comes will be a revelation of God’s character of love. This is Bible teaching:

 

That last “revelation” will obviously be the same as the light of that “another angel” who comes down from heaven having great power. The “earth is lightened with his glory” (Rev. 18:1, 2). It’s not legalism gone wild, nor soft-soap emotionalism; it’s love (agape).

 

That “glory” in turn will obviously be the same as the message Jesus describes in John 12:32, 33: “‘I, if I am lifted up, will draw all to Myself.’ This He said, signifying by what death He should die.” That “love” which will “reveal the character of God” must be the same love that “holds together,” “controls” and “compels,” or motivates the ones who believe in Jesus. They are moved henceforth to live only for Him, “no longer for themselves” (2 Cor. 5:14, 15. There is tremendous power locked away in that “love” known as agape. Jesus longs to put His character in every believer! John 3:16

 

Again, that revelation of love in the last days must be what Paul meant when he said that he “determined not to know anything among [the Corinthians] except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2). That was not extremism; it was only a “reasonable service” that Paul saw as appropriate to the extravagant love Christ had shown for him  ( Rom. 12:1). It was agape, not ordinary human love. Paul saw what we have not yet seen clearly.

 

In these last days when sin and selfishness will become so rampant, the Lord Jesus will be honored by those who “follow the Lamb [the crucified, risen Christ] wherever He goes. … They are without fault before the throne of God” (cf, Rev, 14:1-5). Whoever they are, there WILL be such a people who will glorify Christ! We might eventually be surprised who will end up in that group; let’s walk humbly before Him.

God has done this to demonstrate his righteousness both by the wiping out of the sins of the past and by showing in the present time that he is a just God and that He justifies everyone who has faith in Jesus Christ.  Romans 3:26 (J.B. Phillips New Testament)

Jesus longs for you to come to Him so He can change you into His image and likeness thus  ready for Heaven!! 2 Corinthians 3:18, 2Corinthians 5:14-15,17,20, 1John 3:2

  2. SOMEDAY SOON a poem given to me by GOD:::

    In heaven there will be no poor, all will have equally of heavens open door.
    God will give to everyone’s desire all that’s needed, even bread and fish upon the fire.
    I want to meet all God’s children, my sisters and brothers, we’ll have the best reunion yet.

    The only things I’d miss I know,are the thunder, lightening and the snow.
    The Bible tells us that Gods’ essence is the thunder and lightenings presence.
    And He will create a world so pure; I won’t miss the snow I’m sure.

    There won’t be anything to bite us or to sting, we will be in harmony with every living thing.
    I have never seen the seven wonders of the world, but He will re-create new wonders to be unfurled.
    This earth will have more beauty anew, that everywhere will be a breathtaking view.

    There won’t be anyone disabled, infirm or old; we will be fit as fiddles and more precious than gold.
    Every eye able to see and every knee able to bow, to worship our God and praise him every hour.
    The song of Moses and redemption we will sing, so loud that all of heaven will ring.

    But most of all Jesus, I want to meet,and be taught at the masters’ precious feet.
    There are many questions to ask and much to learn, especally of Gods’ love and of His concern.
    Ages and eons God has known,and through it all His love He has shown.

    Jesus left His place in heaven His home, and gave up His seat beside Gods’ throne.
    I don’t deserve the blood washed robe, or the sacrifice and love on the cross Christ showed.
    Someday everyone will see how and why Christ died for the sins of you and I.

    Soon is the day Christ will come, then it will be over, finished, done.
    Time’s running out, the end is near, the seventh angels’ trumpet we will hear.
    Be ready to meet Him, please don’t wait, repent now today, before it’s too late.

  3. Thank you for your in-site into the Love Of God and Jesus Christ, our Savior. It is more than I can understand. But I accept it and want to understand it better, and make it a part of my life. God be with you and bless you abundantly.

    • Thank you Anita for visiting!! Yes God’s love is absolutely amazing!He loved us while we were still sinners!! Praise God!!
      But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
