Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. Revelation 12:10
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
The Lord upholds all who fall,
And raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look expectantly to You,
And You give them their food in due season.
You open Your hand
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all His ways,
Gracious in all His works.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them.
The Lord preserves all who love Him,
But all the wicked He will destroy.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord,
And all flesh shall bless His holy name
Forever and ever. Psalm 145:13-21
Thank you for visiting 🙂
God bless you wholeheartedly to envision His glorious kingdom here on earth in your heart as we await His return to take us home and be part of His Kingdom.
What a glorious day that will be, stay in His grace!
NOTE: *Baptism is ‘identifying with Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection’*. We put away our old self and rise a new person in Christ. His sacrifice and gift of grace. If it is in your power to do so, do. Jesus Himself was baptized [full immersion], and we are called to emulate Him. However if one cannot be baptized, (like the thief crucified next to Him), know God will understand why you were not able too. Trust Him, He knows your heart. Though it’s not a reason not too if one can.
But those doing right come gladly to the Light to let everyone see that they are doing what God wants them to.” John 3:21 TLB
(That, by the way, is what baptism pictures for us: In baptism we show that we have been saved from death and doom by the resurrection of Christ; not because our bodies are washed clean by the water but because in being baptized we are turning to God and asking him to cleanse our hearts from sin.) 1 Peter 3:21 TLB
God bless you!
