YOU ARE WELCOME.

The two Angels beckoned unto the Disciples while looking up on the mountain where Jesus ascended before their eyes. "Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
This is just a tip of the iceberg. I hope what The Apostle Peter and Paul said of his imminent return gives another insights of his earthly returns.Brethren Christ comes.Keep looking up for the trumpet is at hand.Be at alert.

Mrs. Sarah F Adams' Hymn.

Nearer,my God to Thee
Nearer to Thee
E'en tho' it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams i'be
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven
All that Thou send'st to me
In mercy given
Angels to beckon me
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Then with my walking thoughts
Bright with thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I'll raise:
So be my woes to be
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!


Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky,
Sun ,moon and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Mrs Adam's  thoughts was reflected  over what has transpired within her heart some hudreds years ago.She wanted to draw near unto God.Her song revealed the true state of her Christian's Life.Her song has become household hymn in every Christian home where Christ truly reigns..

You could see a repentant heart sobbing over this song because such heart felt the vacuum existing in between it and God but the fact is as the heart draw near to God we become no hollow.
You can't be hollow as you draw near God because you begin to get equipped and he begin to revealed himself to you.

James 4:8 says "Draw nigh to God and he will draw near to you"

I thanked the Lord for this wonderful song.I believed this is a new song that bring healings.She has been inspired by the Holy Spirit to compose and tune this hymn this way.Really,she has been a blessing.

Yes James 4:8 enjoined us to draw near to God.We are not left out because God too will draw near to us.It is a little but signficant advice.The more we sin the  farther we get to God.The more we abstain from sin, the more we get nearer to God.
The more we pray in Holiness, the more we draw ourselves to God and the more hears us.

She said though trials and temptations may come but they will draw her further to, nearer to God than farther away.It is our tradition to pray against woes but they will come.Jesus said  once we have become his ,his own, we shall face trials and great tribulations in this world but we should cheer up for he has overcome the world.

So cheer up! cheer up!! whatever the situation on grounds.
The devil has said lots of things, i knew, but God has said a few ,those few were  even from the word of God.God might not have spoken to you through his Holy Spirit or through visions,though they are vital for your Spiritual life.
What you have to do is to keep Drawing near and cheer up too!
When you cheer up! Your mind in the midst of trials will be able to sing and to cleave to God.



The end is sweeter for us, for we shall all one ,one one days, leave this world to meet Christ in the air.You must get up there joyfully on your joyful wing.See you there when the rapture come,but DRAW NEAR TO GOD SO AS TO GET UP ON JOYFUL WING.
