There is plenty of cause for weeping in the world today.
Sex trafficking. Abortion. Poverty. Warfare. Disease. Murder.
John wept when it appeared that no one would be able to open the scroll of destiny heaven, and thus set right everything that is wrong in the world.
But he was told to “weep no more; behold the Lion of the Tribe of Judah…” (Revelation 5:5).
For those who are not in Christ when he comes in glory, his appearing will mean “weeping and gnashing of teeth.” But for those are are in him, for those who have repented and trusted Christ alone to reconcile them to God, his appearance will mean the end of weeping.
Do you weep over the apparent chaos in the world? Behold Jesus, and weep no more.
Do you weep over actual injustice in the world? Behold Jesus, and weep no more.
Do you weep over threats to your:
- social standing?
Then behold Jesus, and weep no more.
Do you weep over your sin? You should, but having wept, behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, and weep no more.
Because Jesus conquers all, he is entitled to all our praise.
- Jesus conquers death
- Jesus conquers destiny
- Jesus conquers despair
