Revelation 21:1-5

Revelation 21:1. ‘Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 5. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”‘❤

God is Fair

God is fair. I hear people say He is not, but they just do not understand. God has unlimited power, more than the best imagination on earth can fathom. And yet He made a plan and wrote it down for us in the Bible so we all know what it is. We know from that Bible what God’s will is, what His plan is, how it will happen, what we need to do to be saved and what will happen next. That is extraordinarily fair. He made a plan, wrote it down for us, gave us the plan, and is following the plan. You cannot get more fair than that. Everyone is on the same page as far as having the knowledge about and chance to be saved. We all know. So God is more than fair unequivocally.

People use the fairness argument s a cop out and to blame God for wanting us to worship Him rather than ourselves or the drug of their choice. People are selfish and want what they want, this myopic view that robs them. They believe the lie that obedience is oppressive when in fact, it frees us to joy and peace but doing whatever we want leads to sadness and depression.

God made us and all of us inside wants Him. God is the only One who can satisfy. And He loved us enough to be very fair and make a plan, write it down in the Bible, get it to us and follow the plan. And He goes above and beyond fairness to grace by helping us follow His plan whenever we ask. He loves us that much!!❤❤❤

Acts 2:36-39

Acts 2:36. ‘”Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.” 37. When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38. Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”‘❤
