Resetting Priorities in 2016

world-chaosWorld-wide ISIS attacks, extremely erratic weather in the U.S. and other nations, Europe collapsing from immigrant invasions, more Ebola-like deaths and diseases, Western nations going into economic tailspin, etc.: Considering signs of such pending chaos–all of which point to Our Lord Jesus Christ soon return to earth–Christians should re-prioritize plans for the New Year.

For one thing, we must decide what is more important to us: the people and things of this world or what God commands us to do. His instructions in Colossians 3: 1-2 read: “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”

Notice He says “things” in heaven, not people or Himself or His Son. So what ‘things’ does The LORD speak of?  The Book of Revelation, chapters two and three lists some of those highly treasured ‘things’ in the world to come that believers are instructed to cherish.

*  The privilege of eating of the tree of life which Adam and Even threw away, and of not being hurt from the “second death,” and to eat of the “hidden manna”–special spiritual food–which so many of the Jews disdained during their escape from Egypt.

*  A white stone of victory which will have our own new individual and highly valued spiritual name  which no other person will have or even know about.

*  Power of the nations to rule them with a rod of iron.

*  The morning star; dressed in white clothing and not not having our names erased out of the book of life.

*  Being presented to God The Father as one of The LORD’s overcoming believers. My, My, My!

*  Standing as a trusting pillar, upholding God’s truths in His temple; having the Name and City (New Jerusalem) of God, along with one’s new name written into one’s body for everlasting identification.

*  Sitting with The LORD Jesus in His throne and then sitting with Him as He sits in God, The Father’s,throne-of-god throne. Wow!

Overcoming believers, God’s most important people will rule the universe with Him. Beloved, these gifts for all eternity are for those who build gold, silver and precious stones for The LORD listed in 1 Corinthians 3: 11 – 14 while we are on this earth.

So in 2016 let’s work on what The LORD considers precious by getting into wholesale Christian Bibles reading it, believing it and practicing it more than ever in the few coming years we have left before Christ’s Return!
