MORNINGTIME 2058
 
Who THROUGH FAITH subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: (this is the good stuff where we win and come out on top), and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a BETTER RESURRECTION: And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. (This all looks a little hard to swallow, where is God in all this)? And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, RECEIVED NOT THE PROMISE: Hebrews 11:33-39. The Promise of returning with Christ, we ALL do that together, the living and the dead In Christ. If you're looking for The Easy Life, this isn't it. Christ suffered and died, and rose again into life eternal, showing us The Way, of how it would be done. All the old Prophets knew there was something good at the end of life, something that would make ALL their suffering seem as nothing when they got to The End, they just didn't know it would be Christ. They knew "something" was coming, we know Him as Christ. Christ will make ANY AND ALL suffering seem as nothing, when we see Him Face to face, all of us together. What a day that will be. Here's the point. Whatever "Life of Suffering" we may have, will all be washed away with Tears of Joy when we all see Christ TOGETHER. There is no escaping the coming suffering, IT'S ALL BEEN DONE BEFORE. At the end of the day, ALL WE GET IS CHRIST, and if THAT'S not enough, YOU'RE LOST. FIND CHRIST, and, Be Blessed.
