"Re: Mercer/Looking For the Blessed Hope"


 
Mercer,

Thank you for the outstanding article Looking For the Blessed Hope by John
McTernan! A real blessing! A Must read!!

Especially these excerpts:

The blessed hope is spiritual life to a believer, and without it,
worldliness sets in and chokes the word of God in a person’s life.

We are to be aware of world events in light of Bible prophecy, but our
anticipation should be for the blessed hope. Focusing on world events
rather than the blessed hope can hinder one’s faith and often create fear.
No matter what happens in the world, we are to stay focused on the Lord
Jesus’ Second Coming. This is the anchor for your soul in the time of
trouble.
