Do Not Let YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED! Amen.

Jesus himself promised his disciples and followers that he would come again. Before he was crucified he said, "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place  for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also." - John 14:1-3 .

After Jesus' resurrection, at the time of his return to heaven, the angels also promised "that this same Jesus" would come back again. As the Bible says, "They [Jesus' disciples and followers] were looking intently up into the sky as he [Jesus] was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them.  'Men of Galilee,' they said, 'why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.'" - Acts 1:10-11.

And this is the promise of hope that every true follower of Jesus has. Jesus is coming again and this evil world with all its sickness, sadness, sorrow and suffering will come to an end for all who put their faith and trust in Jesus for their eternal salvation. As God's Word says, "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4 .

What a day, glorious day, this will be!"

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, 
Thank you for Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins. And thank you for his resurrection from death and the grave, and that he is now in heaven preparing a place for all his true followers. Thank you for this wonderful promise. Help me to know for certain that my sins have been forgiven and that I will go to be with Jesus forever when he returns, or if I should die before he comes again.  Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.
