HOPE IN THE SECOND COMING Titus, 2: 13 “Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ"
HOPE IN THE SECOND COMING “ One of the most solemn and yet most glorious truths revealed in the Bible is that of Christ's second coming to complete the great work of redemption. To God's pilgrim people, so long left to sojourn in "the region and shadow of death," a precious, joy-inspiring hope is given in the promise of His appearing, who is "the resurrection and the life," to "bring home again His banished."” E.G.W. (The great controversy, chap. 17, page 299)
HOPE IN THE RESURRECTION “ For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus … For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first . Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words ” 1 Thessalonians, 4: 14, 16-18
HOPE IN THE RESURRECTION “ Hope and faith strengthen the soul to pass through the dark shadows of the tomb, in full faith of coming forth to immortal life in the morning of the resurrection” E.G.W. (That I may know Him, December 22)
HOPE IN ETERNAL LIFE “ For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life ” John, 3: 16
HOPE IN ETERNAL LIFE “ He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away… He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son… I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple” Revelation, 21: 4, 7, 22
HOPE IN ETERNAL LIFE “ Hope has been set before us, even the hope of eternal life. Nothing short of this blessing for us will satisfy our Redeemer, but it is our part to lay hold upon this hope by faith in Him who has promised. We may expect to suffer, for it is those who are partakers with Him in His sufferings who shall be partakers with Him in His glory. He has purchased forgiveness and immortality for the sinful, perishing souls of men, but it is our part to receive these gifts by faith…
HOPE IN ETERNAL LIFE “… Believing in Him, we have this hope as an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast. We are to understand that we may confidently expect God's favor not only in this world but in the heavenly world, since He paid such a price for our salvation. Faith in the atonement and intercession of Christ will keep us steadfast and immovable amid the temptations that press upon us in the church militant. Let us contemplate the glorious hope that is set before us, and by faith lay hold upon it” E.G.W. (That I may know Him, March 14)
