Acts 1: 3
After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.
The suffering ended for Jesus and it will end for you. After. There is life after. Suffering is never the end. It never has the last word. We must believe for after. Some suffering has to run its course. Let it. For your day is not over. Your day will come again. You will rise again. It happened for Christ and He has made sure it will happen to you.
Jesus had to convince people he was alive. Some people don’t want you to come back. Some have written you off and will not re-write the script. Some want to believe but cannot believe. You need to give many convincing proofs. Keep showing up, every day, be there, let them see you, you are here again!
Jesus spoke the Kingdom of God and so must we. We live in a dark world where there is a prince of darkness who wants to steal, kill and destroy. There are rulers, authorities and powers fighting against the Church, against you. There is s kingdom who will put you on a cross and think you are finished. But you are storming back and what needs declaring is the rulership of God, the domain and authority of God. His kingdom is here to heal, to save, to deliver, to raise! Here right now.
