- Day 78 -
Hearts That Wait Patiently for Your Messiah
2 Thessalonians 3:5
Let there be glory, honor, and praise to our eternal King who is coming for us, because we are waiting for Him. “For from days of old they have not heard or perceived by ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him” (Isaiah 64:4). “…So that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our master YAHshua Messiah” (1 Corinthians 1:7). “May the Lord [YAHveh] direct your hearts…into the patient waiting for Messiah”(2 Thessalonians 3:5 KJV).
We are to be patiently waiting for YAHshua, enduring whatever we have to wade through. Paul says, “For momentary, light affliction [including the desolation of this earth and all the terror and pits that await its inhabitants] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison” (2 Corinthians 4:17). “A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand,but it shall not approach you.You will only look on with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.For you have made YAHveh…even the Most High, your dwelling place” (Psalm 91:7-9).
No evil will overtake us as long as we make YAHveh the Most High our tabernacle and abide in His presence through the blood of the Lamb. So as you wait for YAHveh, you are to “straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near” (Luke 21:28).
The book of Daniel is an accurate prophecy of the last days. What Daniel was shown made him so sick that he was appalled and knocked out from sorrow and grief. It was just too much for his earthly nature to contain. The angel told him, “Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time [we are almost there]. Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand [the ones who will praise Him and sing the song, “glory, glory to the Righteous One”, because they have wisdom, insight, and can understand what YAHveh is doing]. …How blessed are those who keep waiting and attains to the…end of time!” (paraphrased; see Daniel 12:9-10,12).
How blessed are those who keep waiting and attain to the end of those days. Waiting, waiting, waiting, we must continue to not grow weary of waiting. He who is coming will come soon, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back” (Hebrews 10:38 NIV).
