SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/27/15- “The LORD Gives A Peace, That Overcomes The World!” (John 16:33)
Premise Question: When one chooses to receive and follow Jesus Christ as their personal LORD and Savior, thereby, becoming a full fledged member of The Company of The Redeemed, with all of its afforded incredible rights and privileges and its wonderful blessings and benefits; does that mean then, that one can assume and fully expect that they will avoid having to face or go through any difficult trial, trouble, tumult, tragedy or tribulation during their life here on this earth?
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NLT)
“I, The LORD, have been completely open and transparent with you, making you aware of some things that are hard to hear and accept, but I’ve done this purposely, for your comfort and assurance of having and being at perfect peace in Me. Although, you will definitely experience many trials, trouble, tribulation and distressful sorrow, while living in the world, I, The LORD GOD Almighty, personally encourage you to not allow any of that to rob and deprive you of your joy that I’ve given you. So, be brave, stay strong in The LORD, with the unalterable and completely immutable fact that, I, The LORD GOD Almighty, have utterly defeated the world, with an overcoming triumphal victory; therefore, that makes you an Overcomer, as well. (John 16:33 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The quick and absolutely true response to this premise question is: NO! But, that quick and abruptly succinct response doesn’t even begin to adequately nor properly convey the full ramifications of what surrounds this question nor does or can it truly depict the complete joy, the all surpassing peace and great comfort that comes to one, as a direct result of one choosing to give their life over to Christ! For every promise of The LORD GOD is faithful and true, being most reliable and trustworthy; and is therefore, absolutely and totally, forever dependable! So, when The LORD GOD, our Redeemer and wonderfully gracious and most merciful Savior, Jesus Christ, says that we most assuredly will experience trial, trouble, tumult, tragedy and tribulation while sojourning here upon this earth, but that we are take heart and are to be entirely alright and completely at peace about all of this, because He, The LORD GOD, has overcome the world and all of it, for our sakes! Blessings…
