In 1 Corinthians 13:13 we read, “Now abides faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” We tend to speak a lot about faith, and certainly focus on the importance of love, but a life without hope is a life lived in depression and uncertainty. God in His infinite wisdom, has revealed to us in the pages of His Word what His plan is working toward. The importance of Eschatology (The study of the last days) is seen that it is given to give us hope and perspective in light of the culture around us. Hope introduces life and happiness into this sin-stained and death-filled world. Yet, sadly, most people in this world know nothing of the advantages and privileges that true hope brings. W are reminded in Hebrews 6:19, that we have “an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast. The hopelessness of the world stand in stark contrast to the genuine and lasting hope that God offers, by giving us and understanding of the redemptive plan that He has for mankind. The Bible began to reveal God’s plan of redemption way back in Genesis 3:14-15, and the entirety of the Word of God is given to enable us to understand the plan and purpose of God in sending His Son not only to provide redemption but to rule and reign on this earth. Warren Wiersbe once wrote, “When worship and prophecy are divorced, the result is mere religious curiosity.” My friends, always remember that God has a plan and purpose in what He is doing on this earth. If we believe that the return of the Lord is soon, then many of the things that we are seeing take place are exactly what we should expect. Don’t loose hope, in the midst of your circumstances. Look to the Author of Hope, and rest in the Words that He has given to us.
