Shielded by God’s Power

Lots of talk about the last days.

Several days ago I wrote about a false messiah presenting himself to the ultra orthodox Jews in Israel. False prophets are 10c a dozen, but there are not many false messiahs running around in Jerusalem. For years I have been writing about faith in Jesus. Faith that comes from hearing the word. My readers are those who have heard the word of God. I wrote so that you would believe. Life can be so difficult when we do not act according to God’s will. We are in an evil world that is becoming more blatant by the day. Through faith in Jesus we are shielded by God’s power. Now believe Jesus’ disciple, Peter.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Peter 1:3-5 NASB)

Salvation of our soul

That doesn’t mean we will escape suffering grief in different ways. Trials are necessary to the refining of faith that results in salvation. Through faith we are shielded by God’s power until our salvation is revealed. I am thinking that this revealing will probably happen soon because of what I am witnessing. The faith of many of my brothers and sisters is now being refined by fire.
