RIP while You Live in this world
If you have ever walked through a Memorial Park/cemetery you have seen RIP
on every head stone.
RIP is the acronym for Rest In Peace. Living in a world laden with sin makes this impossible to do unless you know the answer that is available to Every one but enjoyed by very few. This chaos has been around every since sin entered into the perfect world that God created for the first couple to enjoy sinless perfection and perfect peace was theirs if they kept the one law that He had given them to obey. God also gave His heavenly creatures that perfect peace but many of them were influenced by Lucifer to follow him in his rebellion against God and God could NOT allow this so He expelled them from His perfect heaven. If I could ever think that God made a mistake it would be that He gave His heavenly and earthly creatures the ability to make a choice ( free will.) God did not want a world of robots but one of creatures willing to follow His perfect plan and Rest in Peace as they were promised by God and make it known to the world. Under the inspiration of God, Isaiah penned these words; “Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” Isa. 26:3). In order to rest in this perfect peace of God while you live in this now imperfect world you must have first exercised saving faith and made peace with Him by accepting His Son Jesus as your Lord and Savior. It’s a FREE Gift available to all. (Eph. 2:8-9), you can then enjoy that perfect peace that passes All understanding that the Apostle Paul wrote to the Philippian church about as found in (Phil(4:7). Jesus confirmed this in (Jn. 14:27)
