The LORD has a cup! Also, there is a cup of abominations that we can find in The Book of Revelation.
Which one are we going to partake from?
We must drink from one or the other.
This is a Vision I had recently: I saw a ‘Golden Cup’ placed in front of the most gorgeous staircase you can ever imagine.
It looked like in a Palace for sure, with the most beautiful red Velvet carpet.
The stairs were going upward!
I believe the vision could be applied in one of two ways.
The devil makes the world alluring — but he lies! He gives no pay off as he promises.
His final end has already been decreed as to be in the lake of fire with his other fallen cohorts.
Its a shame any of mankind chooses to trespass there!
On the other hand, The LORD’s Cup is full of suffering.
Still we know if we partake of His sufferings we will also partake of His Glory!
“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” Romans 8:17
“If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:” 2 Timothy 2:12
How many of us really get what lies ahead of us in eternal benefits? We can’t fully yet:
“But as it is written, ‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.'” 1 Corinthians 2:9
We are if Christians, climbing up Jacob’s ladder.
We should be climbing a little higher and a little higher at all times. In other words going from glory to glory!
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of The LORD, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of The LORD.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
Still as one old friend used to tell me to get higher, we must go lower. (Meaning, of course to go to our spiritual knees.)
So many are losing heart today in looking at all that is coming on the earth.
Do we not get it yet?
We are ‘Royalty’ if we belong to Jesus Christ!
Yes, we must prepare and know we are in for some even harder times, ahead.
Still we can not even grasp how much awaits us if we choose right!
Some benefits we will reap on this side. All in eternity for sure if we run this race set before us till the end!
Don’t give up or quit this race!
I am here to encourage you on today.
Come on, get back up!
Revive and Refresh in The LORD!
We are gonna make it!
Now, which cup are we going to drink from? I do ask you again.
God bless you all.
“Ye cannot drink the cup of The LORD, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of The LORD’s table, and of the table of devils.” 1 Corinthians 10:21
“The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.” Psalm 16:5
“Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of The LORD, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of The LORD.” 1 Corinthians 11:27
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.” Revelation 17:4
