Blessed Sabbath and Blessed Hope

Dear Brethren,
I enter this Sabbath with a saddened heart as two of my friends have been laid to rest this week. I hope and pray that they were each ready to sleep in the Lord. I believe that we are soon going home and what it shall like to be not only reunited with friends and loved ones but see our Savior face to face. The promises of the scriptures are becoming more and more precious. 

"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 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 he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful." Rev 21:1-5

"For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. " Isa 66:22-23

Happy Sabbath brethren. May the fellowship with the spirit of the Father and Son be blessed among you all.
