We Know How it All Ends

Are you worried about the future?

There is no reason for us to be worried about the future, because we know that He holds the future:

He tells the end from the beginning:

"Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:" (Isaiah 46: 10)

We also know that Jesus is coming back for us:

"20He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
"21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." (Revelation 22: 20-21)

Jesus is our Witness, for He testifies with assurance: "I come quickly!"

"Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec." (Hebrews 6: 20)


"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." (John 8: 36)


"And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel." (Hebrews 12: 24)

He wants to be with us more than we want to be with Him:

"6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. " (Romans 5: 6-9)

When we read Romans 5: 15-17, Paul reveals to us our destiny in Christ Jesus:

"15But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ." (Romans 5: 15-17)

Today, because our future is in Christ, and He holds our times in His hands, we know how everything ends: Christ all in all.
