FUTURE of SAINTS

 

Who are the saints?

What future have they got?

First, let's get something right --

It's not the world who decides who becomes a saint.

Only GOD decides.

The Bible tells us more:

Psalm 37:28

King James Version

28 For the Lord loveth judgment, 

and forsaketh not his saints; 

they are preserved for ever: 

but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.


Psalm 116:15

King James Version

15 Precious in the sight of the Lord 

is the death of his saints.


Daniel 7:18

King James Version

18 But the saints of the most High 

shall take the kingdom, 

and possess the kingdom for ever, 

even for ever and ever.


Daniel 7:21-22

King James Version

21 I beheld, 

and the same horn made war with the saints, 

and prevailed against them;

22 Until the Ancient of days came, 

and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; 

and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.


Daniel 7:25-27

King James Version

25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, 

and shall wear out the saints of the most High, 

and think to change times and laws: 

and they shall be given into his hand 

until a time and times and the dividing of time.

26 But the judgment shall sit, 

and they shall take away his dominion,

 to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

27 And the kingdom and dominion, 

and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, 

shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, 

whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, 

and all dominions shall serve and obey him.


Zechariah 14:5

King James Version

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; 

for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: 

yea, ye shall flee, 

like as ye fled from before the earthquake 

in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: 

and the Lord my God shall come, 

and all the saints with thee.


Matthew 5:5

King James Version

5 Blessed are the meek: 

for they shall inherit the earth.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: 

for they shall see God.


Matthew 5:10

King James Version

10 Blessed are they 

which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: 

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


Matthew 27:50-53

King James Version

50 Jesus, 

when he had cried again with a loud voice, 

yielded up the ghost.

51 And, behold, 

the veil of the temple was rent in twain 

from the top to the bottom; 

and the earth did quake, 

and the rocks rent;

52 And the graves were opened; 

and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, 

and went into the holy city, 

and appeared unto many.


Romans 8:27

knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, 

because he maketh intercession for the saints 

according to the will of God.

2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, 

to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, 

called to be saints, 

with all that in every place 

call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, 

both their's and our's:

according to the measure of the gift of Christ.


Ephesians 4:10-12

and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, 

for the work of the ministry, 

for the edifying of the body of Christ:


Revelation 5:8

King James Version

the four beasts and four and twenty elders 

fell down before the Lamb, 

having every one of them harps, 

and golden vials full of odours, 

which are the prayers of saints.
