How is it going to go on?

Many people are unsure about what their future is going to be. Some go to fortunetellers and to those who read cards and ask them about their future. They believe that they will receive the right answer to their question.

As a Christian, I know who determines and holds my present and my future in the hand. For HE says in John 10:27: "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."

The disciples went with Jesus to the temple at Jerusalem. They were amazed about the large stones of the temple place; from the outside it looked like an unconquerable fortress. Only Jesus stayed quiet and did not share the enthusiasm of the disciples, but rather said, "...there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." Mark 13:2. Jesus did not speculate or make assumptions, he hopes and does not doubt. He knows for certain what he is talking about. What he says is the truth!

40 years later, the legions of Rome march in and stand in front of these walls, they occupy Jerusalem and destroy both the city as well as the temple. That which nobody believed would happen, happened. Jesus saw it all ahead of time.

God's Word is the truth! Every prophesy which is not fulfilled will be fulfilled. Also, the future of the nations is recorded in the Word of God. The future of those who love God and are obedient to Him is revealed in His Word, also of those who reject HIM.

Paul writes to the church and says that we have become God's people and possession. How? Through our obedience to His Word and the gospel of Jesus. I am a living building stone as part of the temple of God, a temple which can not be destroyed. Jesus has conquered the fear about the present and the future in my life, for He has become my God and savior. Is He your God and savior too? rw
