we leave this year behind, we should leave this year on a positive
note. The same key verse, Revelation 19:11 still
applies to our discussion. The last discussion, Faith-empty,
was the negative view to this verse.
The rider on the white horse is named Faithful and True. Everyone on
earth struggles with being 'faithful'. Couple relationships are dashed
because one or the other (or both) have been unfaithful to each other.
So too, in the spiritual realm, our relationship with Jesus Christ is a
Each of us determines if we will have a couple relationship with Jesus
Christ. If you make the commitment to have this couple relationship,
then you are the Bride that Revelation
19:1-10 talks about. This is an everlasting relationship
transcending the removal of the old earth and heaven (Revelation 21:1) and continues on into the
new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2).
The positive side of this couple relationship is found in Psalm
Because the rider in Revelation 19:11 is
FAITHFUL and if you as the
other partner truly 'LOVE the LORD' and are FAITHFUL to Him, the
will protect you. Can you imagine having the One who made everything,
having the One who has all Authority in heavan and earth, and having
this One as your Husband? He certainly can take care of you. No matter
what the economy, bosses, neighbors, or even the devil himself may do
to you, you will be protected now and forever by your Husband. So,
and let your heart take courage,
All you who hope in the Lord (your FAITHFUL husband).
The new year will be challenging for many as the global recession
really begins to take hold; as many organized churches will lose sight
of why they exist; and as many will experience oppression as they have
never experienced it before.
YOUR HEART TAKE COURAGE'!
You are part of a FAITHFUL couple relationship.
