Despair To Sure Hope

When I first hear the word Hope, I don’t think about anything "sure" but about a possible

brighter future. However, when it comes to our Sure Hope in Jesus Christ, the Bible really shows us how He is an absolute Hope, not wishful thinking or positive thoughts. We can rest assure, that He is all we need to live with peace in our hearts no matter what storms may rage around us.

There was a time when I despaired because I had no hope. My life was supposed to end at the age of 20 due to a misdiagnosis of a disability. Terrified of what would come after death and sure that there had to be meaning to life, I let myself sink down low. But, thanks to praying, Christian family members, and the fact that God hears our heart's cry for Truth, He opened my eyes. I was never one to believe in anything just to make me feel better. I had to know if there was an absolute Truth to why we are here. It's a long story, but the bottom line is, God showed me that the Holy Bible really is His infallible Word. An incredible peace flooded my heart and years of fear, sadness and despair lifted like a lead blanket. I went from doubt, to Sure Hope.
Nothing To Lose 
If you are in despair or depressed, searching for the meaning of life...I affirm, based on life experience and God's Word and answer to prayer, that Jesus Christ is our only Hope. He really is the Way, the  Truth and the Life. You have nothing to lose, if you doubt, tell God. He knows our heart and our questions. I learn more every day and know that I can't do one good thing a part from Jesus.
Here are just a few of MANY Bible verses that sooth the sad soul. Open your heart up to Him and let Him show you Truth. There is absolute Truth.
[Act 2:25-27 KJV] 25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
[2Co 1:3-12 KJV] 3 Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. 6 And whether we be afflicted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation. 7 And our hope of you [is] stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so [shall ye be] also of the consolation. 8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: 9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: 10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver [us]; 11 Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift [bestowed] upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf. 12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

[Rom 5:1-5 KJV] 1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
[Psa 42:11 KJV] 11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.
[Psa 16:8-11 KJV] 8 I have set the LORD always before me: because [he is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence [is] fulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore.
[Act 10:36 KJV] 36 The word which [God] sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)
[Rom 8:5-6 KJV] 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace.
[Psa 34:17-19 KJV] 17 [The righteous] cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. 19 Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
[1Pe 5:7 KJV] 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
[Jhn 5:24-26 KJV] 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
[Rom 15:13 KJV] 13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
[Rev 21:3-7 KJV] 3 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. 4 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. 5 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. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
[Psa 31:24 KJV] 24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
[Rom 15:13 KJV] 13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
[Rom 16:20 KJV] 20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen.

Truth Research Recommendations: Puritan Pictures

Here is another channel we recommend called: Puritan Pictures by Jared and A Video called 

Truth Research Recommendations: Mike Hoggard

We have a Pastor who has the calling of a Watchman, one who watches and warns God's sheep about dangerous wolves, often those wolves are in sheep's clothing. He likes to prove what is conspiracy fact verses what is conspiracy fiction. We recommend listening to him as well. He has a pile of Pastor Mike Hoggard is his name.
resourceful videos. We have been watching and listening to him for about three or more years now, and can confirm that he is a committed believer, with a heart for the Truth.

Real Truth - Conspiracy Fact

Spiritual Warfare Is Real. 
The Bible says toward the end of Ephesians, that our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual forces in the unseen realms and that we are to put on the full armour of God (my paraphrase). To many Christians, the term Spiritual Warfare is something they avoid like the plague. I have even heard someone state that they can't think about it, it scares them to know that demons and such are fighting against Christians. Based on our experience, we know this battle is real and definitely recommend following God's Word in all areas of life. Since His Word says this battle is real, it is real and worth knowing about. No soldier goes into a battle not knowing a thing about their enemy. To walk into a battlefield blind folded, wouldn't be done.

One of those ways that we want to research the strategy of our enemy, is researching the whole Conspiracy theory realm to learn what is fact and what is not. Until we learned about what is really going on in our godless world, we always believed everything we heard from mainstream media, never questioning anything. Once, we began researching and questioning, it became clear that things are not always how they appear to be. That we have been deceived many times trusting the world without asking any questions.

One of the channels we like to listen to is called, Round Saturn's Eye is a You/tube Channel run by a fellow named David Bass. He was once involved with "Hollywood" and after some experiences, he recommitted his life to Jesus Christ. This fellow has deep, intense videos discussing or exposing the meaning behind a lot of things that we still don't know anything about. Some we understand, some we may never understand, and some thoughts we may never really believe. But what matters to us, is that his heart, since committing his life to Christ, is sincerely that those who will listen, will surrender their lives to the Only Sure Hope we have, Jesus Christ. As well, the fact that he teaches about a lot of symbolism and other subjects that are true. David speaks with authority, and a heart for the human race.

If you wish to delve into learning about the meaning of symbols and about secret societies, and other topics you may have never heard about before...learning the details about this spiritual battle and weapons of our, of God's enemy, then please put on the armour of God before you research topics like the truth behind the meaning of symbolism (ever look at the back of and American One Dollar Bill? Or look closely at many logos or branding messages on our favourite products?), and  how there are "anti-Christ" organizations attempting to deceive the masses using techniques to brainwash people by using the media in all it's forms including Hollywood and the music industry.

 The point is, if you are interested in learning from credible sources, we just want to share a few that we believe are committed Christians, who know what they are talking about. Of course, no one is equal to or above God's Word, so always, always double check what anyone says, with the Bible.
We recommended digging deeper into what is beneath the surface of what we see, but this research can get consuming because is is interesting and often eye opening. So Balance your research. Pray for guidance. The topics we have looked up are many, but here are just a few:  conspiracy theories, the meaning of the cube, 9/11, the Truth movement, Kennedy Assassination, freemasonry, illuminati, Bohemian Grove, Bilderberg, Saturn, The pyramid with the eye of Horus, the Kabballah, CERN and many more. Some are just interesting and have no "spiritual meaning."
