"Could our redemption draweth nigh!"

 Could our redemption draweth nigh!
Luk 21:25 KJV - And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Luk 21:26 KJV - Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Luk 21:27 KJV - And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
Luk 21:28 KJV - And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Luk 21:29 KJV - And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
Luk 21:30 KJV - When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
Luk 21:31 KJV - So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
Isa 24:20 NKJV - The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, And shall totter like a hut; Its transgression shall be heavy upon it, And it will fall, and not rise again.
Isa 24:21 NKJV - It shall come to pass in that day [That] the LORD will punish on high the host of exalted ones, And on the earth the kings of the earth.
As we see the day approaching, let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works!

Hbr 10:20 NLT - By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place.
Hbr 10:21 NLT - And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God's house,
Hbr 10:22 NLT - let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
Hbr 10:23 NLT - Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.
Hbr 10:24 NLT - Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
Hbr 10:25 NLT - And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Hbr 10:26 NLT - Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins.
Hbr 10:27 NLT - There is only the terrible expectation of God's judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies.
Hbr 10:28 NLT - For anyone who refused to obey the law of Moses was put to death without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
Hbr 10:29 NLT - Just think how much worse the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God, and have treated the blood of the covenant, which made us holy, as if it were common and unholy, and have insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit who brings God's mercy to us.
Hbr 10:30 NLT - For we know the one who said, "I will take revenge. I will pay them back."He also said, "The LORD will judge his own people."
Hbr 10:31 NLT - It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

For His Glory, Honor, & Praise,
