Before & After Christ
Before Christ, due to suffering & hopelessness, we may feel like this:
“1After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. 2He said:
3“May the day of my birth perish,
and the night that said, ‘A boy is conceived!’.”
(Job 3:1 – 3)
More precisely, it’s hopeless till “He Resurrected and defeated the most powerful enemy, death itself!”
“The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man (Judas) who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.” (Matthew 26:24)
But since Lord Jesus came, there’s now hope for all sufferings and pain to eventually cease to exist. The verse below proves that this will happen in “time”:
“and God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and the death shall not be any more, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor shall there be any more pain, because the first things did go away.’.” (Revelation 21:4)
Indeed, Blessed is the Day in which Christ Jesus our Lord was born:
“10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all people. 11Today in the town of David the Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord. ” (Luke 2:10 -11)
Note that in the verse above, it’s written in truth that the “Good Tidings” of “Great Joy” due to Christ being Born is “not” for some or believing people only, but for “all” people.
Blessed Saviour of the World, indeed!
Remember, “only verses” tell “100% truth”.
So, where there are “no verses” to accompany a claim or there are “verses against” a claim, it follows that the claim is just an “opinion” of men which is either a “lie” or a “half-truth” of some sort.
Don’t be deceived.
Read carefully again. Revelation 21:4 assures that in “time”, Death (which includes Second Death too) will cease to exist because all these belong to the “first” order of things arising from ‘sin of the world’ (singular – all sin in the whole world) which is taken away by Christ Jesus alone. The verse below proves this fact:
As John the Baptist said, “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29)
