08 Sep What Will Your Reward Be?
Holy angels of God are messengers of God. They deliver God’s messages to the designated recipients. Hebrews 6:18, lets us know that “by two immutable things, it is impossible for God to lie.” Therefore, God’s angels cannot lie either as they are delivering God’s messages.
Jesus said in St. John 5:39, to “search the scriptures”. If you search the scriptures on this topic you will see that on numerous occasions in the bible that angels delivered God’s prophetic messages and proclamations that always came true. There are too many to take note of in this short essay but I will give a couple. The angel delivered the message to Zechariah that despite his age, he would have a son. It was fulfilled by the birth of his son, John the Baptist. The angel delivered the message to Mary that even though she was a virgin, she would give birth to the Savior of the world. It was fulfilled by the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.
There was one other prophecy given by angels that I would like to bring to your attention. In Acts 1:9-11, (9) And when he (Jesus) had spoken these things, while they (Apostles) beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. (10) And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men (Angels) stood by them in white apparel; (11) Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
So again, here is a prophesy by angels. Should all the other prophecies be true but not this one? Search the scriptures, all the others came true. So yes, dear reader, this one is going to come true also. Will you be prepared when it does come true? If you have sin in your life when he returns, you won’t be prepared. The spiritual condition you are in when Jesus returns is the condition you will be in for eternity. Even the song says, “Sin can never enter there” Revelation 22:10-12, says, (10) And he (Jesus) saith unto me (the Apostle John), Seal not the sayings of the the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. (11) He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. (12) And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
So a reward is awaiting each and every one of us. Each day brings us closer to our reward. If you have not done so, Stop, Drop, and Turn! Stop sinning, repent of your sins and accept Christ as your savior. Drop whatever is holding you from doing so. Turn to God.
Please consider. What will your reward be?
