The hope that is within you is the same hope that raised Christ from the dead. Hope is desire–mixed with the Word, becomes faith–that births spiritual energy–the life of God within you–manifests to the Glory of God! It all begins with hope, but if hope is not built upon it remains as hope and nothing more. The end is never accomplished if the foundation is not built upon.
Many Christians never move beyond the foundation of hope. They hope they are saved. They never look into the perfect law of liberty. their eyes never feed on My Word. Their ears hear very little of My Word and yet they hope. What basis do they have to anchor that hope? They can’t know for sure if they are even saved, because they choose to remain ignorant to My Word that would be their anchor secure of truth. It is a futile practice that repeats over and over throughout the generations.
“Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand and we rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.” Rom. 5:1-5
“May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Col. 1:11-14
