Habakkuk 2:3-4 (NET)
For the message is a witness to what is decreed; it gives reliable testimony about how matters will turn out. Even if the message is not fulfilled right away, wait patiently; for it will certainly come to pass – it will not arrive late.
Look, the one whose desires are not upright will faint from exhaustion, but the person of integrity will live because of his faithfulness.
When Amara believed in the LORD Jesus, she was made to understand that because she believed, she was going to have eternal life, experience the resurrection of the dead and have the same kind of glorious body that Jesus has right now (Phil 3:21). She was made to understand that our glorious bodies will reveal our real nature as Sons of God (see Rom 8:23 in AMP). These bodies cannot grow old or fall sick; they will walk in the divine nature as naturally as we walk in the physical nature now.
Amara was also made to understand that because of the resurrection, she would sit with Christ in glory and judge the world, and even angels (1 Cor 6:2-3). She understood that she was going to inherit everything that belongs to God because she is a joint heir with Christ. Because of these things she understood, trials and temptations could not make her compromise her faith. She knew what was at stake.
The gospel message is not only good news about salvation from sin and condemnation; it is also good news about our glorious eternal destiny in God through Christ Jesus. In 1 Corinthians 15, we see Apostle Paul explain the gospel message he preached, and a great part of that chapter was about the resurrection of the dead-our glorious eternal destiny.
Go into today remembering that the gospel brings hope to those who receive it and causes them to live by faith [and faithfulness] because of this hope. Read Col 1:23.
