Disheartened? Don't be-keep your eyes on the throne

Recent victories that leaves you with a sickening thud in your heart is your initial reaction as you read the news of the Supreme Court rulings and the actions of Texas officials. 

However, I pray for all believers and conservatives do not be faint of heart and remember the promise of Jesus that He's coming soon and will take us home.

Look forward to glory land 

Look forward to His promises

Look forward that in the end, it will be worth it all that we kept the faith despite the over-increasing odds that lays in place before Christians. 

2 Timothy 3:1-5, " the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!"

1 Thessalonians 4:1-2, 11-12, 14-18, "Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more...." 

"...For you remember what we taught you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others..."

"...For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words..."
