Today (4/7/10) is my Mom's 91st birthday. She has been a "rock" to those who have believed in her for her entire life. She has been a mother of seven, a teacher of thousands, a world traveler, and much more. Now she is about to enter His rest under the altar with her cherished husband, Thomas to await the coming of the Kingdom created by Israel, their sixth child, Robert. Those who were once not a people, are now God's people, Israel, a holy nation! "Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; He will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." (Rev. 6:9, 7:16-17) "And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken. A voice says, "Cry out." And I said, "What shall I cry?" "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the LORD blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever." (Is. 40:5-8) The WORD! "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. ... From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another." (John 1:1-5.....16) "....my people, will know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and bring you up from them." (Ez. 37:13, Is. 26:19) "They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection." (Rev. 20:4-6) "You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God." (Ez. 36:24-27) From my Mom comes a Kingdom that will soon encompass the entire earth, a Kingdom that will not be shaken for time indefinite. (Hebrews 12:28) So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed." (Is. 28:16) "They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore." (Micah 4:3) "If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no rain." (Zech. 14:17) Peace Mom! Over and out. Love, Bobby
