Encouragement for Doves. Article below recently posted by Dr. Dave Reagan of Lamb and Lion Ministries of McKinney, Texas.Our Promised Victory
What is our promised victory? Let me summarize it for you.
- We are promised that at any moment now we will be taken out of this world in the Rapture of the Church.
- We are promised that God will then pour out His wrath on the wicked world leaders who currently thumb their noses at Him.
- We are promised that Jesus will then return to reign over all the world in glory and majesty from Mount Zion in Jerusalem, and all the earth will be flooded with peace, righteousness, and justice.
- We are promised that we will ultimately be given an eternal home on this planet after it has been refreshed and perfected by God.
- We are promised that we will live eternally on that new planet in glorified, immortal bodies in the presence of our Creator and Savior.
Again, how can I be certain of these victorious promises? Because the Bible tells me so. And the Bible can be trusted as the infallible Word of God. How do I know that? Because it is the only book in the world that contains fulfilled prophecies.
And, because all the prophecies concerning the First Coming of the Messiah were literally and precisely fulfilled, we can be confident that all the prophecies about the Messiah's return and triumph will be literally and precisely fulfilled.
Let's take a quick, overview look at God's Plan for the Ages. There are four major prophesied triumphal events on the horizon that we as born again children of God can look forward to: The Rapture, The Second Coming, The Millennium, and Heaven.
The Rapture. Our first promise of victory is the Rapture of the Church....
