BEYOND YOUR PROBLEMS,
THERE IS HOPE
Sometimes our problems can be so severe that we can often despair of finding a way out.
Things can look so hopeless. Its even worse if there is no-one to whom you can turn, but I
hope that this website can provide some help in this area. My wife and I have gone to the
expense of the Internet and I have taken the time to write this, especially to provide help for
those who are going through a difficult time in their lives. Please take the time to read it
carefully. You might initially want to shut off, but if your problem is serious enough you owe it
to yourself to benefit by what is written.
Right now I want you to see TWO WAYS WHICH PERHAPS CAN HELP, no matter
what your problem is. Firstly, you should know that BAD AS YOUR SITUATION MAY
BE FOR YOU NOW, THINGS CAN CHANGE.
Look at this: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more
death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things
are passed away."
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed
GOD WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT HE INTENDS TO MAKE ALL THINGS
NEW. THERE WILL BE NO MORE PROBLEMS LIKE THOSE YOU ARE GOING
THROUGH NOW. NO MORE PROBLEMS OF ANY KIND. NEVER AGAIN.
If you have a Bible you can check this out for yourself in the book of Revelation, chapter 21, verses
1 and 4.
That is in the future, but THERE IS HELP FOR THE PRESENT TOO.
To understand the help available for the present we need to know what really happened in
the world, many years ago. The Bible records how that a rebellion occurred - of all places -
in heaven. Lucifer, who was the first, or senior, of the angels, decided that he wanted to have
for himself the worship which belonged only to God. Finally, there was war in heaven, and
Lucifer with the angels who supported him, was cast out to this earth.
So that the rebellion wouldn't spread to people on earth, God gave to our first parents a
simple test of belief and obedience. If they failed, they would share in the rebellion which had
been started by Lucifer, and which carried the penalty of death. When our first parents
Adam and Eve failed the test and disobeyed God, humanity became engulfed in the rebellion
which has affected every generation and every person ever since.
PROBLEMS WHICH CAUSE SO MUCH ANGST AND HEARTACHE NOW are a
direct result of the rebellion against God which started so long ago. STAY WITH ME
NOW; THERE IS GOOD NEWS COMING.
You may well be the innocent party in the problem which is worrying you, and someone else
may be making your life very difficult. What follows next may seem a little strange at first
BUT LET ME ASSURE YOU THAT THERE IS GOOD NEWS AHEAD. Although you
may have quite likely lived a good life, still there are times when we, every one of us, have
done things that are not right. NOW YOU MAY BE THINKING that it is about time you
had some help for your problem. I'M COMING TO IT. I did suggest earlier two ways of
help. STAY WITH ME NOW. DON'T LOSE ME NOW. This is important. Notice this;
YOU CAN HAVE PEACE IN YOUR HEART and help from God if you accept what
follows in this website. Not doing what is right,- and every one of us has at one time or
another failed to do what is right - not doing what is right is called sin in the Bible, which also
says that "all have sinned", and further, that "the wages of sin is death."
NOW HERE IS SOME VERY GOOD NEWS. We have seen that God intends to make
all things new. He will build a new earth, where your problems, (and others' problems), will
not exist; a place where there will be no more tears, no more death, no more sorrow, no
more crying, no more pain. To accomplish this, HE CAME TO THIS EARTH AS JESUS
CHRIST AND HE PAID THE PENALTY OF DEATH FOR THE SINS OF ALL
PEOPLE. THEN HE AROSE AGAIN, FROM THE DEAD, PROVING FOR ALL TIME
THAT WHEN HE SAYS HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS NEW, HE CAN AND WILL
This is what the Bible says; "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son
that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
You can check it out for yourself in the Bible in John chapter 3 and verse 16. Read verse 18
too. Now you know that by the simple act of believing in the name of Jesus, you can have
the promise of eternal life and share in the future new earth. THAT SHOULD GIVE YOU
TREMENDOUS HOPE AND ASSURANCE. When we believe in Jesus we believe in His
plan not only to save us from our sins but also to restore in us His image.
I want to show you one other thing and then I want to talk about your problems. When we
first believe in Jesus, we don't really have much idea what He will do for us.
But look at these two statements from the Bible:
"BY GRACE (or unearned favour) YOU ARE SAVED THROUGH FAITH, AND THAT
NOT OF YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD."
"BUT NOW THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD...IS MANIFESTED (or shown), being
witnessed by the law and the prophets, EVEN THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD
WHICH IS BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST UNTO ALL AND UPON ALL THAT
BELIEVE." (You can check these out for yourself in the Bible in the book of Ephesians
chapter 2 and verse 8, and in the book of Romans chapter 3 and verses 21 and 22.) These
amazing statements tell us that when we believe in Jesus, He will save us and give us His
righteousness (or goodness).
NOW WHAT ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS? If you have been following the above and
believe that Jesus gave His life for you and as a gift promises you eternal life where there will
be no more sorrow or crying or death or pain - if you truly believe this, God will give you
peace and you will be better able to deal with the problems which are causing you so much
distress at present. Look at this promise from Jesus; "These things have I spoken unto you
that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have trouble: but be of good cheer; I
have overcome the world." (John 16; 23) Now I said at the beginning that there could be two
ways of help and I have shown them.
FIRSTLY, there is the amazing fact that God intends that in the new earth which He will
make, all things will be new. THERE WILL BE NO MORE PROBLEMS OF ANY KIND.
No more crying, no more tears, no more death, no more sorrow, no more pain.
SECONDLY, I have shown that the way to have PEACE IN YOUR HEART is by believing
in Jesus Christ and His plan to save and restore us. Inherent in this is His promise to give us
His own righteousness (or goodness), as we believe in Him. This means that we will be given,
as a gift, His strength, His goodness, and His power to enable us to choose the right. In fact,
He will put in our hearts a real desire to do what is right. And so long as we continue to have
faith in Him (for this is what belief in Him really means), then we can continue to receive as a
gift, His righteousness.
If you now believe in Jesus and have found peace in your heart you will be in a much stronger
position to face your problems. Let me recommend that each day, and indeed throughout
each day, that you renew in your thinking your belief in Jesus. And talk to Him as a friend -
ask Him to help you. The few verses in the Bible which I have shared with you are just the
beginning. Let me suggest that you expand your understanding by reading the book of John,
(next to Luke), especially chapters 1, 3, 13, and 15, together with the Epistles of John (nearly
at the end of the Bible). Try also reading in the book of Matthew, especially chapters 1, 5, 6
and 7. Once you have discovered these treasures, you may be ready to read the many items
of help in the rest of the New Testament, as well as in the Old Testament.
There is no follow-up from this website, and no email address. Especially if it is new to you,
read this article again and again. If you have followed the above you should now know that
there is hope beyond the clouds of your present problems. More than this you should have
found peace in your heart, as well as hope and assurance for the future. If you want these
things to continue read more of the Bible each day, renew your belief in Jesus, and ask Him,
every day, to help you.
Just one other thing; if you want to add real happiness to the peace that you have
experienced, find someone each day and share with that person what I have shared with you.
May God bless you.
