Some Certainties in an Uncertain World


I want to lay out some Certainties in an uncertain World.  Some unmovable principles in a time of shaking and flux.  When things change, what can we hold on to that is unchangeable? 

I believe God want us to be established and steady.  He has given us all that we need to equip us in a crazy and crumbling world.  In the past, His presence and His word has held those who trusted in Him.  In the face of death and danger, they were strong and courageous.  They did not flinch. They did not retreat.  They did not whimper and complain.  They were strengthened by His Presence and by His Word.

Hebrews 7:

24But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.

25Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

2Cor 1:

20For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

21Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

22Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

2Cor 5:

1For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

3If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

4For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

5Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

6Therefore we are always confident….

Eph 1:

 

13In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Some things we can be certain about:

  1. God is still God and always will be (He is in control)

His Nature.  His Character.  His Will.

He will do what He says He will do

He will always be who He says He is

  • His Word is absolute and is totally reliable

Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

His Word Reveals:  God’s feelings.  God’s purpose.  What to expect in the future. 

  • Jesus loves us and always will

What can separate us from the love of God?

Romans 8:

35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  • The Church is the safest place to be in times of trouble

18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

  • The Brotherhood of Believers provides comfort in times of strife

1 Thessalonians 4:18  Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 

  • The Truth will make us Free (from all things the devil has or does)

31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

You can be certain  that God is for you and not against you.  He loves you and always will.  He is with you and will never fail you or leave you.  He understands your pain, your sorrow, and your weaknesses.  He wants you.  He has made provision for you.  He has given you Grace innumerable times in the past.  He will be your Fortress.  Your Protection.  Your Solid Foundation.  Your Assurance in times of uncertainty.  He is your Friend.  Your Father.  Your Redeemer.  Your Help in time of Need. 

He will see you through and keep you in spite of any circumstance or situation.

TRUST HIM
