"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

DARKEST BEFORE THE SONRISE! A Good Friday Message with Select Texts from MATTHEW 27

~ By James Fire

Introduction: As Christians we know that GOD is love (1 JOHN 4:7), and as children of GOD we understand that “all things work together for the good, to those who love GOD, to those called according to His purpose” (ROM 8:28).

So, we are sometimes bewildered when bad things, especially tragic things happen in our lives. Because GOD is all-knowing and all-powerful, and that He is all-loving, He could stop such tragedies in our lives if He wanted to.
We often ask the question in such tragic situations, “LORD if You love me, and You knew this was going to happen, and had the power to stop it, then why didn’t You?”
This causes some professing believers to turn away, believing that somehow, GOD let them down; they even question GOD’s love.
Some with a heart of bitterness and disillusionment even question GOD’s existence!

Introduction: There are many questions about REVELATION 21:4, regarding GOD wiping away all of our tears; tears in heaven? How could this be? What in heaven could there be that would produce tears in the eyes of the saints?
I think a possible answer lies in the last verse of the previous chapter:
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

GOD would need to wipe away tears and expunge from us the sorrow of witnessing this scene; that while the justice of GOD will be served on Judgment Day, we think of the needless devastation of these souls, damned for eternity. 

 If only they had humbled themselves and received Christ – they would have shared in the grace and blessings of heaven along with the rest of us, solely based on Christ’s redemption of sinners.

I pray that the reality of this future sinks into our hearts and minds and renews in us a compassion and intense desire for the lost to come to Christ and believe the Gospel.
Those tears will be wiped away and sorrow and crying will be no more . . .
