“Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us according as we hope in thee.”_(Psalm 33:22)
Humankind lives on the mercies of God. This is undeniably true because it is the mercy of God which is keeping us breathing until the time we die. In effect, there won’t be any mercy in the aftermath of our death. Gospel truth like this, is the right weapon to defeat and abolish the belief held or opined by some adherers and believers who share in the lies of mercy after death.
Specifically, the only hope of every living soul is to die in Christ and finally end up with Is Creator in Heaven. If that is not your goal in life, then Satan has a fruit of ignorance for you. God’s Word tells us that He will have mercy on those He will have mercy. As a result of that, all our wish in life is to receive the mercy of God in productive times like this, doing all that His mercy has pardoned us to put aright. Therefore, our greatest prayer is to ask for the tender mercies and loving kindness to endure for us.
Jesus Christ is the hope of our glory. The glory in this context will come only when we have received His mercies and turned into new leaves. Jesus Christ died on the Cross of Calvary to atone for our sins by writing them off with His blood in order for us to be stainless and prepared in absolute godliness. His sacrifice shows that God will go every length to forgive us our sins. His mercy towards us is the expression of His greatest love for humanity.
The main reason God shows mercy to mankind is not only to save us from wallowing in hell, neither is it to provide us with the greenlight to continue sinning. It is to being us into the rejection or abolition of sin, and into communion with Him in holiness and righteousness. Without holiness or sinlessness, no one can see the Lord. The mercy of God is not to cripple us in sin or fuel our persistence in stubbornness.
His mercy is to free us from sins and grant us the likeness of Holy God, our Father. He who has hope in the God of Israel, will have to receive His mercy in order to accept to walk in His ways and make it to Heaven.
*PRAYER*: Lord Jesus, have mercy on my soul on the last days. AMEN*
