“A Living Hope”
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, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 1Peter 1:3-5
When a person comes to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART for the SALVATION of their soul they receive what Jesus told Nicodemus, when Jesus told him that he MUST be BORN AGAIN, (John 3:1-21). They receive NEW BIRTH into a LIVING HOPE, which is based on the resurrection of the LIVING Jesus Christ.
They are given an INHERITANCE that is INCORUPTIBLE, it can NEVER perish, spoil or fade. And it is KEPT in Heaven for that NEW TRUE BELIEVER, who through their STEADFAST FAITH is SHIELDED by God’s own power, even in their darkest hour, until the coming of the final stage of their SALVATION, which will be revealed in the LAST TIME.
This final step of the SALVATION of the soul will come when Christ Jesus is REVEALED in the LAST TIME. When He RETURNS to earth, during the SECOND COMING. This is the LIVING HOPE for ALL TRUE BELIEVERS.
What is your status? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you do NOT have a LIVING HOPE, but you do have a CONDEMNED SOUL. However, God is giving you an invitation NOW to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and receive a NEW BIRTH into a LIVING HOPE, with an INHERITANCE awaiting you in HEAVEN. Do it NOW, while you still can! He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
