Now in this hope we were saved, yet hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24-25
The HOPE that is spoken of in the New Testament, is not like the English word---HOPE, the New Testament HOPE does NOT contain UNCERTAINITY, but it contains the CERTAINITY of something that is yet to be REALIZED It is the ULTIMATE PROMISE of sharing in the GLORY of the ALMIGHTY GOD.
It is the CERTAINITY or HOPE of the PROMISE of God that a TRUE BELIEVER, will, one day, be FREE from SIN and DELIVERED from an ETERNAL DESTINY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS. This is POSSIBLE, because of the REDEMPTIVE WORK of His SON, on an OLD RUGGED CROSS. And for those who will come to JESUS CHRIST for the SALVATION of their souls, by FAITH in Him, will receive the PROMISE of a BODILY REDEMPTION and an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. This PROMISE brings us HOPE---the CONFIDENT EXPECTATION of this final step of the plan of SALVATION.
Our citizenship is in Heaven, from which we also EAGERLY wait for a SAVIOR, THE Lord Jesus Christ. He will transform the body of our humble condition into the likeness of His GLORIOUS body, by the POWER that enables Him to subject EVERYTHING to Himself. (Philippians 3:20-21) This is what we, the TRUE BELIEVER, EAGERLY WAITS for. It is our HOPE---A CONFIDENT EXPECTATION of our ETERNAL DESTINY. Do you possess this HOPE?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you have NO HOPE. Your ETERNAL DESTINY is HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. This is NOT what God wants for you. He has a WAY for you to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, which is; for you to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO HIM, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and have that HOPE---A CONFIDENT EXPECTATION of your ETERNAL DESTINY---HEAVEN. So do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
