As 2022 passes and 2023 arrives, for those of us in the KINGDOM OF GOD, we celebrate because it is one year closer to the COMING of our Lord, Savior and King JESUS to take us HOME to be FOREVER with our FATHER in HEAVEN (Matthew 24:36, 25:31-34).
We CELEBARTE because on the DAY OF CHRIST at his COMING we look forward to our inheritance of LIGHT that is required for ETERNAL LIFE (Matthew 25:31-34)!
“Wherefore God saith: ‘[AWAKE THOU THAT SLEEPEST, AND ARISE FROM THE DEAD, AND CHRIST SHALL GIVE THEE LIGHT]’” (Ephesians 5:14).
“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51).
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST TRUMP]: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this [MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY]” (1 Corinthians 15:52–53).
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that [GOD IS LIGHT], and in him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5).
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the [FATHER OF LIGHTS], with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).
JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God says: “[I AM COME A LIGHT INTO THE WORLD, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON ME SHOULD NOT ABIDE IN DARKNESS]’” (John 12:46).
Now, therefore, as the only way to get the things that are eternal is through Jesus Christ who died for us; for this purpose then we should live unto him and not unto ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15).
“Jesus Christ the same [YESTERDAY], and [TODAY], and [FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8). “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).
