Be Of Good Cheer!

John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

We serve a risen Savior! Easter Sunday is just ahead. For the first time in American history, Christians won't be allowed by government law to assemble together as a church on Easter Sunday! Think about that dear friend. Oh what a privilege it is to gather together as Christians. Many people are scared today of the much dreaded Coronavirus, which the media has hyped to hysteria levels. The nations of the world are afraid, but our God is not afraid! Isaiah 40:15, “Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.” 

Nothing ever startles, panics or occurs to God! The Lord created all life! Acts 17:25, “Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;” Jesus Christ created all things. John 1:3, All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” God is still on His throne in Heaven, and the earth is His footstool. Acts 7:49, “Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?”

Our omnipotent (all-powerful) Savior never changes! Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” The world continually changes, people change, society's moral values change, trends come and go; but our God NEVER EVER CHANGES!!! Malachi 3:6, “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.The inspired King James Bible hasn't changed!!! The modern Bible revisions keep changing, confusing naive pastors and churchgoers, but the eternal inspired Word of God is UNCHANGING!!! Did you know that the New International Version (NIV) changed it's content by 38.8% between the 1984 NIV and the 2011 NIV? It is true! No wonder the churches are changing so quickly nowadays, sliding down the abyss into Hell! 
“Do not ask for fears to be removed; ask for courage equal to the fears.” —Pastor Jack Hyles

We Serve A Risen Savior!

I am NOT worried about the Coronavirus! Isaiah 54:17, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.I am not afraid of dying, not in the least. I would prefer not to die in some unpleasant way; but death itself does not intimidate me, because Jesus removed the sting of death on Calvary's cross (1st Corinthians 15:55-56). In this miserable world, the only reason I even care to live another day is BECAUSE HE LIVES!!! ...
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus; He came to love, heal and forgive; He lived and died to buy my pardon, an empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives! Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, because He lives, all fear is gone; because I know He holds the future, and life is worth the living, just because He lives! —Bill and Gloria Gaither, song: “Because He Lives (1971)
I love you in the Lord dear reader, whoever you may be. If you are not a child of God, then please get saved RIGHT NOW before it is too late! If you are God's redeemed child, then, BE OF GOOD CHEER because our blessed Savior lives and all fear is gone! 
2nd Timothy 1:7, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
