Dear John Tng and faithful doves—and all readers,
Subj: An Antidote for Feeling Very Down Today—Please Share this with Everyone!
I couldn’t help but notice the postings yesterday (on another Forum) that some were feeling very down. When I feel that way, it’s usually because of feeling rejection from family and people that I really care about. I have armed myself with some very good Christian Music CD’s and DVD’s; of which, Bill Gaither’s (4 volumes DVD’s) All Time Favorite Homecoming Songs and Performances are definitely my favorites, to get me happy and joyful again in the Lord. It’s really great on a big screen TV with surround sound.
Following is one of my favorites which you can access on Youtube.

As most of us know, we are sooo… very near to the end (the Day of the LORD’S judgment and wrath, and also His Salvation).
[Read Isaiah 25:9(NIV) 9) In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” (This pictures the Rapture!)]
Be assured that the truly righteous (not the hypocrites) will be Raptured the same day that fire and sulfur rain down from heaven (Read Lk 17: 26-37 and Lk 21: 34-36).
Read Habakkuk 2: 1-4 2And the LORD answered me and said, write down the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. 3For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. 4Look at the proud; his soul is not straight or right within him, but the [rigidly] just and the [uncompromisingly] righteous man shall live by his faith and in his faithfulness. (Amplified Bible).
Hebrews 10: 37-38 37For still a little while (a very little while), and the Coming One will come and He will not delay. 38But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it]; and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him. (Amplified Bible)
Jeremiah 15: 19-21 19 Therefore this is what the LORD says: “If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me; if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you will be my spokesman. Let this people turn to you, but you must not turn to them. 20I will make you a wall to this people, a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to rescue and save you,” declares the LORD. 21 “I will save you from the hands of the wicked and redeem you from the grasp of the cruel.”
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 24-25 KJV) Maranatha!
