We have been studying HOPE. Yeshua Jesus came that we might have assured HOPE in Him. Our HOPE will always be in Yeshua Jesus through eternity!
God never changes. His ways are righteous… meaning true and right. So why would He change? He and His Word are consistent. So, He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. (Psalm 55:19, Psalm 110:4, Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 7:21, James 1:17)
Psalm 145:17, “The Lord is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all He does.”
Psalm 33:4, “For the word of the Lord is right, and all His work in truth.”
Ezekiel 12:25, “For I am the Lord. I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass”
Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Revelation 22:13, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were there at the beginning of creation in Genesis. They are going to be there at the end in Revelation. Immediately after the fall of man…God spoke His prophecy of HOPE in assurance of His Savior. God’s character is to finish what He starts. He always fulfills His Word. He is faithful. He is the Creator. The earth and all in it is truly His.
Yeshua Jesus was there at the creation. That was in the beginning. When God’s kingdom of mankind and earth fell, He prophetically spoke His plan of restoration through His Messiah. He had given authority of earth to man. Therefore, Yeshua Jesus came as a man to be the legitimate Savior as the second Adam and the sinless Son of God. He leads us all the way to the end.
Revelation tells us only Yeshua Jesus is worthy to open the scroll. Might this scroll be a legal title deed of covenant ownership over all of the earth? Might this scroll be the document that pronounces judgment on evil in the earth? Or might it be both!
Yeshua is worthy and can legally claim authority over the earth; and will physically come and remove evil from the earth; and take ownership as King of King and Lord of Lords. We, His followers will joyously and thankfully live and rule with Him. He is our eternal HOPE of righteousness, resurrection, and glory in Him. He is faithful to His plan, His word, His promises, His prophecy. Yeshua Jesus is our eternal hope…now and into the future forever.
Psalm 119:81, “My soul faints for Your salvation, But I HOPE in Your word.”
Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
1 Peter 1:3, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living HOPE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”
1 Peter 1:13, “Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your HOPE on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.”
1 Peter 1:21, “Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and HOPE are in God.”
1 Peter 3:15, “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the HOPE that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,”
Our sure HOPE in Yeshua Jesus is awesome! Why are the people in the world so depressed, stressed, anxious, desperate, even suicidal? They may not know about the HOPE we have in Yeshua Jesus! If anyone comes to know Him, then that person can find real HOPE!
