True Gospel with SAVIOUS-PARKER KWINIKA: Rejoice for He ever prevails over evil
REJOICE in the Lord. This is especially for you that feel abandoned by The Almighty Jehovah God during challenges. I say rejoice.
Jehovah God is with you. Rejoice at all times.
As followers of Jesus Christ, the true Prince of Peace, it is paramount to always rejoice during both the good and bad times.
I am quite aware life has some uncertainties and frustrations. However, when one rejoices in the Lord, all these fears and worries disappear faster than one says, “Rejoice.”
Depression and anger owing to financial challenges, marriage breakups, and stress or loss of employment are prevailing challenges. The list is endless but when you are in the Lord, hope and courage are guaranteed.
The book of Philippians 4:4 states, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”
The same verse in the New International Version reads, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice,” while the New Living Translation states, “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again–rejoice!
This is Jehovah God’s most anointed apostle of all time, Paul of Tarsus. He knew that when you are in the Lord, joy, peace, happiness, hope, faith and love are the pillars that superseded suffering.
Rejoicing in the Almighty Jehovah God always brings health and eliminates stress and anguish.
When rejoices in the Lord, disappointments, pain, anguish, stress and frustrations are easily dealt with.
I really like Paul. Spreading Jesus’ true gospel across the world, he faced a mammoth task, risking persecution, imprisonment and resistance by non-believers, yet still found joy in the Lord.
Paul knew well there was always salvation to come after his death hence rejoicing in the Lord.
Rejoicing in times of challenges always assures us of hope and a better future.
Rejoicing in the Lord Almighty Jehovah God brings joy to the heart. It motivates us to keep doing positive things all the times despite daily challenges.
Even the devil, can be confused by joy, continuous happiness in times of trouble drive the wicked ones to drop their evil machinations.
Romans 5:10 states, “For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!”
The New Living Translation version states, “For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.”
The English Standard Version reads, “For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.”
2 Samuel 6:14 quotes one of my favuorite kings of ancient times, David. He danced in rejoice to the Lord while wearing a priestly garment.
The New International Version, reads, “Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might.” The New Living Translation reads, “And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment.”
I like the English Standard Version, which states, “And David danced before the Lord with all his might. And David was wearing a linen ephod.”
The book of 1 Thessalonians 5:16 wraps it all, stating, “Rejoice always.” The New Living Translation states, “Always be joyful.”
In that regard, no challenges is insurmountable when we rejoice. So, faced with persecution, feeling undermined or experiencing tribalism, xenophobia or whatever challenge, I say rejoice in the Lord.
Those who believe in this true Gospel, say Amen!
