The Last Days and the Left's Lies, Part 3 - By Sean Gooding - https://www.raptureready.com/2019/11/06/last-days-lefts-lies-part-3-sean-gooding/
Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law."
Once again thanks for the emails that you send. Some are encouraging and others not so, and that is okay. The mere fact the people are reading these articles is enough for me. Plus, those that are not encouraging force me to be more deliberate in my study and in my defense of what is true. George Orwell said this, "In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." Jesus put it this way in John 3:19-20:
"And this is the verdict: The Light has come into the world, but men loved the darkness rather than the Light, because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come into the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."
As we approach the Last Days, the prevalence of lies will grow and grow as the world system prepares the masses for the Anti-Christ to appear. Remember that there will be strong deception once the Lord's churches are taken out of the way, and then God will send strong delusions that the people should believe THE LIE. In 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 we see this dire warning:
"10 and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. 11 For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie, 12 in order that judgment will come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness."
Notice in verse 10 that these who refused to love truth have every wicked deception directed against them. They reject the very truth that will save them; and, ultimately, they will be allowed to believe all the lies of the world system and then, in particular, THE LIE (see verse 11), whatever that lie will be about the missing billions of people that have been suddenly taken out of this world by God. This is why it is so important that the Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:25 that we need to assemble together more and more as we see the last days approaching. While we are together, we are to encourage each other; and, more importantly, we are to spend time in the truth of the Bible. Without it and its truths, we too could fall prey to the lies of the system around us.
Let me offer one lie that is coming to a head as an example, and then we will move on to the actual lesson. The world keeps telling us that men and women are the same. So, when men who identify as women want to compete in women's sports, they completely dominate. Right now, trans-men are dominating women's athletics, cycling, wrestling, weightlifting, and on we can go. It is clear to the real women that the men are stronger, faster and have more endurance. Let me offer an example, according to Google:
The fastest women's mile runner is Sifan Hassan who recently set the world record with a time of 4 mins 12 seconds; however, the fastest man is Hicham El Guerrouj with a time of 3 mins 43 seconds (29 seconds faster). Just a week or so ago, a man broke the 2-hour mark on a marathon. Men are bigger, stronger, faster, often have more endurance, different muscle structure, different fat contents in the body, and on and on we can go. This is the truth; God made us that way. But the Lies of the left are going to destroy women's sports because no one wants to admit the truth.
Sadly, too many Christians have fallen into the lies because we do not spend enough time in the truth. Christians are not called to be social justice warriors; we are called to manage the planet, but only God can save it. We have two jobs: love God wholeheartedly and then love your neighbour. This is all done so that people can see Jesus more and more and come to Him for salvation.
Now to the actual lesson for today. Over the past few weeks, we have looked at another verse in conjunction with our theme verse; that is 2 Timothy 3:16-17:
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
In the first two lessons, we looked at the importance of doctrine, and we mentioned things like the doctrine of Creation: God made us in His image. The doctrine of Salvation: Jesus is the only way to be saved. As we mentioned earlier, there is a doctrine that God made men and women differently, and there is no amount of social engineering that will change the genetics that God put in place. Men cannot be women, and women cannot be men. It is that simple; no matter how many surgeries they have, or hormones they take, they cannot change the DNA. This is a doctrine.
In the last lesson, we spoke about reproof and correction. Reproof is defined as "an expression of blame or disapproval." Correction is defined as "a change that rectifies an error or an inaccuracy." Thus, reproof is pointing out sin and wrong; correction is then doing it the right way. We gave an example of this reproof and correction from Ephesians 4:28:
"Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth."
Here Paul highlights the improper behavior: stealing, and offers a correction: go and work. The Bible is filled with these; take the time to read the book of Proverbs.
Now we will look at the final part of the verse from 2 Timothy. Before we do, let us recap the theme verse from Proverbs 29:18: People need proper revelation, the proper teaching and exposition of the word of God to help them to be restrained in evil. Simply put, the more a society hears the teachings of the word of God, the less evil the people will be. Now you can understand why there is such a push to remove the Bible from the schools, from the public in general, and to remove the Ten Commandments from view, to remove in God we trust from sight. To make the Bible out to be an obsolete book that is filled with racism and violence, a book to be avoided not embraced.
It is very hard to promote sin and evil if the majority of the people know the Bible. It is hard to promote socialism, for instance, when the Bible makes the idea of personal ownership of things like land and livestock a man's right. It is very hard to promote paying people not to work when the Bible says a man who does not work should not eat. It is very hard to promote abortions when the Bible addresses babies in the womb as people with a purpose from God (read Jeremiah 1). We also see that true happiness comes from obeying God's laws; yes, by living under God's rules.
The Bible, when properly taught, provides us with foundational truths called doctrines; it provides us with an understanding of what is wrong and tells us what is right. Once these two parts are in place, we are then equipped to do "good works." Equipped to live righteously. One cannot live righteously without proper doctrine and without Godly reproof and correction. Good works is the fruit of the two.
Now let us first deal with the Lie of the Left: They say we are all good. Man, they say, is intrinsically good and may at times make a few mistakes. The saying 'I'm okay, you're okay' was coined a while ago, and neither side is true. We are not okay. A society without laws does not get better. Let me offer an example: There is a movie series called The Purge; there are several movies in the franchise, and I have watched one of them. The premise is that for one night there is no law. On this one night, you can do whatever you want without fear of the police. The movie is filled with death, pain and mayhem. This is what really happens when men cast off restraint. We unleash the evil in us. The Bible puts it this way in Romans 3:10-18:
10 As it is written:
"There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one."
13 "Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit."
"The poison of asps is under their lips."
14 "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness."
15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace they have not known."
18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes."
This is the reality of who we are without Jesus. Read it slowly; let it sink in. Let the Holy Spirit open your eyes to what mankind is like without Jesus. According to these verses, we are incapable of good works. Look at verse 12: "There is none who does good, no, not one." Neither you nor I can do anything good. You are not okay, and neither am I.
But God has a ray of hope to offer us. When we take the Word of God seriously - when we regard it as precious, when we properly study it, read it, recall it, store it in our minds, when we submit it and regard it as powerful in our lives - we are then equipped in Jesus to do good works. But they can only be done after we have submitted to proper doctrine: God is Holy; we are not. God is good; we are not. God can save us; we need to be saved. Good works can then be done once we have begun the process of allowing God to change us. This is called sanctification or transformation; this is after we have been saved and now have the Holy Spirit living in us.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
Now, we can do good works. Now we can begin to be obedient to God. The Holy Spirit in us, and we are clothed in the righteousness of God and not in our own goodness, which the Bible tells us is no goodness at all. In Jesus, clothed in His righteousness, indwelt by His Holy Spirit and armed with the Holy Word of God, we are now capable of doing good works; and the first work is the surrender of our own bodies to the Lord. Take the time to read these verses in Romans 12: 1-2:
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
We will pick up with these verses next week and discover how we can do good works in Jesus, by Jesus, and for His glory.
Who will lead the Palestinians after Abbas? - Shimrit Meir -
Opinion: Though no attempt has been made to push Abbas out of office, his age and ailing health require those vying for his job to consider their options as they wait for nature to take its course
The attention given to the Palestinian arena, minimal as it is in normal times, is even less today.
From Iraq to Lebanon, social and security issues make headlines, while in Israel - the political stalemate is all consuming.
But below the surface, actual shifts are afoot, which may affect the near future.
In other words: everyone is preparing for the day after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is no longer in charge.
It appears as if nothing dramatic as happened. Abbas is not dying or even hospitalized, though rumors about his failing health pop up every few weeks.
He will be 84 in ten days, he has cancer, suffers from depression and smokes like a chimney.
He blamed his failure to quit cigarettes on the troubles President Donald Trump has caused him.
Though the "Deal of the Century" seems now to be off the table, the PA's financial troubles are only growing, and the Palestinian national movement is at one of the lowest points in its history.
Abbas's age and frail health has so far prevented a battle between potential successors.
People believe nature will take its course so attempts to push him out of office have not been made.
Because both Israeli and PA security forces have invested years-long efforts, Hamas is absent as a military force in the West Bank.
Hamas' leadership understands that their hopes of assuming control through military means will fail, so they intend to make use of the available democratic and procedural means such as parliamentary elections.
Winning those seems likely, and if successful, a Hamas member will assume the position of speaker, which will position the movement perfectly, to take over the presidential post when Abbas is no longer able to fill the role.
Hamas's electoral prospects are difficult to foresee. Results of the public opinion polls conducted in the PA should not be considered trustworthy.
The last elections were in 2006, and then Hamas won a large percentage of the vote.
But that was before they took control of the Gaza Strip and imposed on its population a life of extreme poverty and hunger.
Many in the West Bank are frustrated and critical of the current government. Still, it is doubtful they see the situation in Gaza as a better option.
A possible path to the future leadership of the PLO may come from Fatah (the Palestinian National Liberation Movement).
Two possible candidates who have been waiting in the wings are considered strong contenders:
One is Jibril Rajoub, who is currently in charge of sports for the PA and has made a name for himself through the national soccer team.
The other is Mohammad Dahlan, who has been banned from the West Bank by Abbas but is believed to have a strong following in the Gaza Strip, enjoyed financial support from the UAE and seems to have Egyptian President Sisi in his corner as well - something Abbas is less than thrilled about.
Whoever the successor will ultimately be, the animosity for Hamas, expressed by the current leader will disappear and the factions will certainly make the effort to mend fences.
Iran, Hezbollah Using Mexican Drug Cartels To Infiltrate US - By Rami Dabbas/Clarion Project -
Iran and its terror proxy Hezbollah are financing Mexican drug cartels, smuggling people into America and recruiting them (for pay) as sleeper jihadist cells.
The recruits are mainly immigrants to Mexico from the Middle East, mostly from Lebanon where Hezbollah is based.
The coordinated operation is part of Iran's war on America.
While Iran and Hezbollah are known to be active in the drug trade further south in Latin America, many are unaware that Iran, through its proxy Hezbollah, finances money laundering operations and human smuggling through the Mexican drug cartels at the U.S. border.
The operation is founded on the known fact that the U.S.-Mexican border is easy to penetrate, with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants and asylum seekers from Mexico and other Latin American countries coming into the U.S. from Mexico every month.
In southern Chiapas in Mexico, there are Muslim communities. These communities are made up of Syrians and Lebanese who migrated to Mexico decades ago as well as recent Mexican converts to Islam. In addition, Islam is gaining a foothold and in southern Mexico, with indigenous Mayans converting by the hundreds.
These communities are funded in the Diaspora and all contain sleeper cells. With the help of Mexican drug cartels, they finance and traffic extremists to the United States.
Canada has also become their target after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lifted the visa requirement for Mexican citizens.
For example, Ayman Juma, a Lebanese citizen linked to Mexican drug cartels and involved in the drug trade in Latin America and Mexico, is a member of the Hezbollah. He is also associated with al-Qaeda.
Juma has smuggled tons of drugs from Mexico to the United States. The money made is partially used to fund terrorism, especially to prepare terrorist attacks against Israel as well as Hezbollah's activities in America.
Hezbollah also managed to smuggle 200 illegal Lebanese immigrants through Mexico to America. All of them are part of a network of Iranian and Hezbollah supporters.
After his arrest, Mahmoud Youssef Kourani, a Lebanese citizen who infiltrated the United States through the Lebanese-Mexican smuggling network, admitted to the FBI that he spent part of his time in the United States to raise funds to support Hezbollah's activities.
Kourani carried out operational activities as a long-term sleeper agent, acting on behalf of Hezbollah's external attack-planning component, the Islamic Jihad Organization (IJO), such as identifying Israelis in New York who could be targeted by Hezbollah and finding people from whom he could procure arms that Hezbollah could stockpile in the area.
"While living in the United States, Kourani served as an operative of Hezbollah in order to help the foreign terrorist organization prepare for potential future attacks against the United States," said U.S. Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers.
These included buildings housing the FBI and U.S. Secret Service in Manhattan, as well as New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and a U.S. Army armory.
Taken together, the arrests of Kourani and another Hezbollah operative, Samer el-Debek, led the U.S. intelligence community to revisit its longstanding assessment that Hezbollah would be unlikely to attack the U.S. homeland unless the group perceived Washington to be taking action threatening its existence or that of its patron--Iran.
Following Kourani and Debek's arrests, the director of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center said in, "It's our assessment that Hezbollah is determined to give itself a potential homeland option as a critical component of its terrorism playbook."
What Will You Take With You? - By Dennis Huebshman -
"For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26 - emphasis mine)
"By this, all people will know you are My disciples, if you have love for one another" (John 13:35).
"Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world" (1 Timothy 6:6-7).
How about a very brief, but very deep verse? Exodus 20:3, "You shall have no other gods before me."
I remember a saying from a number of years ago that said, "Whoever has the most "toys" when he dies, wins." Truth is, there are many people today who are putting their faith and hope into the "things" of this world. Guess what?! That's a major favorite ploy of Satan, to get people away from Jesus and keep them focused on the "toys" of this world.
Go back just for a moment to 1 Timothy 6:6-7, where it tells what we brought into this world, and what we can take out of it. The main descriptive word is "nothing." Where true believers are going, we won't need any material things from this earth.
In the movie Ghost starring Patrick Swayze, he makes a statement at the end about taking "Love" with him to paradise after he died. Realizing the movie was totally a secular fictional work, this statement is nevertheless on the mark.
As Christians, we are commanded to love one another as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit has loved us. Chapter 13 of 1 Corinthians is designated as the "love verses." Paul tells of all he could have, such as speaking tongues, prophetic powers, faith - but without love he would be nothing. Verse 7 states, "Love bears all things, believes all things, endures all things." Finally, verse 13 sums it all up, "So now, Faith, Hope and Love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is Love."
Jesus spoke many times about "rich" people, and Matthew 19:23-24 are the go-to verses on this. "And Jesus said to His disciples, Truly, I say to you, only with difficulty will a rich person enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Again, I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God."
Jesus isn't saying that being rich makes it so difficult, but rather, how the people with wealth look at their worldly possessions instead of being concerned with the condition of their eternal souls. It's sad, but we have even witnessed a number of "so-called" Christian ministers turn away from the Lord in pursuit of the lure of the riches of this earth. Jesus made it plain that if anyone seeks riches here rather than serving the Lord, their treasures are all on this earth. These people may have started out thinking they had all the right motives, but when money became involved, 1 Timothy 6:10 came into play, "For the love of money is the root of all evil..." When these people leave this earth in death, they will have a very miserable forever. Another old saying is, "You don't see u-haul trailers at a funeral."
You can take a person of absolutely no wealth, but if they have received the gift of Salvation, and have Jesus in their hearts, they are guaranteed a home forever with the Savior. In fact, Jesus Himself said he would "prepare a place" for us as given in John 14:1-3. As long as we are on this earth, we can't even begin to imagine how wonderful our eternal paradise will be. It's beyond any comprehension right now, but we will have all eternity to enjoy our lives in Heaven. The "things" of this earth won't even enter our thoughts.
Just imagine a world totally without pain, no imperfections, not having to say good-bye to loved ones because of death. It will be an atmosphere of pure love and true fellowship with everyone. No jealousies, no vain pride, no sin of any kind. Our biggest desire will be to serve our Savior for giving us this totally perfect life. Our only "cost" is to accept Him as our Savior, and ask His forgiveness for our sins. No one who truly receives this gift will be turned away (Romans 10:9-13).
Jesus demonstrated how difficult it is for the rich to be saved in His encounter with the rich young ruler in Matthew 19, Mark 10 and Luke 18. He was asked by the young man what had to be done for him to inherit eternal life. Jesus told him to follow the commandments, to which the young ruler stated he had done so all his life. Jesus then told him he needed to sell everything he had and give it to the poor. This would give him treasures in Heaven. The rich young ruler walked away in sadness because he had "many possessions." He was not willing to part with earthly things to receive a Heavenly reward. His entire being was based on what this earthly life had to offer.
If you were to take a serious look at the world today, what people can see, feel and possess is most important to them. The idea of living for an unseen Savior, son of an unseen God and part of the unseen Holy Trinity including the Holy Spirit, is foolishness to them (1 Corinthians 1:18).
Satan has been active on this earth from the creation through today, and will be an influence all the way to the end of the millennium. He will be bound for the last 1,000 years, but human nature will still be sin-influenced until the last judgments of this earth are completed. Satan knows what is written in God's word about his fate, but he's just arrogant enough to believe he can somehow overcome it. Only after receiving our eternal immortal bodies with the same mind-set as the Savior will we be totally free from the sin-nature that started at the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3).
God made it very plain by repeating a specific promise three times as to who can be saved. Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13 all say that everyone - all - who call on the name of the Lord will be saved. Joel was before Jesus' time, but the message was the same. Whoever lived for God before Calvary, and for Jesus from Calvary forward would be given eternal life in Heaven. Those who turned away and accepted the "things" of this earth would be separated from the Father forever.
Revelation 19:20 gives the fate of the final antichrist and false prophet, followed a thousand years later by Satan himself in Revelation 20:10. In Revelation 20:11-15, the fate of all the ones that will be separated forever is given with the White Throne Judgment, ultimately to be tormented forever in the Lake of Fire that was created specifically for Satan and his demons (Matthew 25:41).
One thing to understand: there are some really devout people of wealth that realize it was the Father that allowed them to have everything they possess. They live lives of being generous to others, and not "worshiping" the things they own, but instead worship the Savior. Yes, it's difficult, but it can be done. It's a "heart-condition" that brings them close to Jesus. What Jesus was referring to, in a lot of cases, is the wealth takes over the heart, and it becomes "hardened" against Spiritual things.
The main point of all of this is to have Jesus in your heart as your Savior, no matter what your lot in life is. The day is coming soon when all true believers will be called up to meet Jesus in the air (1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17), and we will leave this earth exactly as we entered it - with no earthly possessions including clothing!
We are grateful for what the Father has given us to help make our lives easier. The point to remember is, we own nothing. It belongs to God, and is His to do with as He pleases. On a personal note, my prayer is that when we are called, someone will be "given" our things and see that it was a Christian that had been here. With all the evidence that will be left behind, it might just be what is needed to bring more souls to Jesus. As of the things of this earth, I give you a quote from the late Dr. Martin Luther King, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are Free at Last!"
This could very likely be our "Victory Cry" as we rise up to meet our precious Savior face-to-face for the very first time. "I Can Only Imagine" what wonders await us. No matter whether through death or the Rapture, our living will have just begun. Eternity is a very long time, and to turn it down for the material things of this earth is a tragedy that cannot even be imagined. There is no third option; Jesus or Hell - it's entirely up to you. Choose wisely!
Come Lord Jesus! (Maranatha!)
Daily Jot: Are you on Power Save mode? - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
Americans who believe in Judeo Christian values repeatedly have been told that they are not good people. The left has adopted a culture of attacking anyone with whom they disagree. It even has a name-cancel culture, where people are essentially "canceled" for expressing something these brutal hate mongers don't like. Yet they accuse everyone else of hate, especially Christians. Christians are hated for believing in creation, that life begins at conception, that marriage is between a man and a woman. Our dignity, honor and belief system have been under attack. This is a society where the moral ground is increasingly given way to the power of darkness. It seems that light is in power save mode.
But there is one thing that no Hollywood actor, no "politician," no political system, no culture war, no struggle between the classes, no forced healthcare or Islamic terrorist can take away from us--The Holy Spirit. Jesus said in Acts 1:8, "But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." Think about that--the uttermost part of the earth. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, "For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." Zechariah 4:6 says, "Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the LORD of hosts."
The Holy Spirit. Ruach Ha Kodesh. You are powered by the Holy Spirit. No election, no depression, no oppression, no darkness can usurp that power, unless you let it. During this dark time in our nation, we need to exercise our Holy Spirit power. Notice the Lord said to receive the Holy Spirit and then be witnesses first in Jerusalem, then expanding out to Judaea and Samaria, then unto the uttermost part of the earth. He didn't say to be witnesses in the church pew, then inside the church's self improvement program, and then inside the church's conference on self improvement. He was telling us to receive the Holy Spirit and engage with the world, not draw back from it.
Pew Research says 65% of American adults describe themselves as Christians, down 12 percentage points over the past decade. Meanwhile, people who describe their religious identity as atheist, agnostic or "nothing in particular," now stands at 26%, up from 17% in 2009. Even so, we are in a vast, vast majority. If we as Christians were fully engaged, our American society would not be giving ground to the darkness that is prevailing. We are told in Ephesians 5:8 to "walk as children of light." Romans 13:12 tells us to "put on the armor of light." And Ephesians 6:17 says to take the "sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" and verse 20 tells us "that therein I may speak boldly as I ought to speak." We as Christians are powered by the Holy Spirit. You are powered by the Holy Spirit. Don't be on power save mode, let the power of your light shine.
Daily Devotion: Better Days Ahead - by Greg Laurie -
In the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the LORD through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.-Daniel 9:2
Have you ever been reading the Bible when all of a sudden a verse was speaking directly to the situation you were facing in that given moment?
That is what happened to the prophet Daniel. He didn't have the Bible like we have today, but he did have something of great value. He had a scroll of the prophet Jeremiah.
And as he was reading through it, Daniel realized that the prophecy Jeremiah gave was happening in real time-in Daniel's lifetime. This impacted him, and he experienced a personal revival.
At this time the Jewish people were living as captives in Babylon. Jeremiah and other prophets had warned Israel to turn from their rampant idolatry or judgment would come upon them.
But the people ignored it. And finally, that judgment came.
I'm sure that as Daniel read through Jeremiah, he came to this very familiar passage where the Lord said, "After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place" (Jeremiah 29:10 NKJV).
Then God said, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, . . . thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope" (verse 11 NKJV).
Recognize that last verse? In principle it applies to us today. Maybe you're in a Babylon of sorts right now. Life isn't going the way you hoped it would. And you don't know if it ever will improve.
I'm certain of this: Better days are ahead for you. Ultimately God will work out whatever you're going through, for your good and for His glory. The better days ahead that I'm certain of are the days of Heaven, when we'll be in the presence of the Lord.
