“WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HOPE!” Conclusion!

When you have lost faith, you can hope.  The requirement of hope is to glory in Tribulation.

Bro. Gibbs asked brother Roloff:  “How are you doing? His answer:  “The Bible says I’m fine.”

If you have no patience you’ll have no experience, because patience is waiting on God. From experience comes hope:  Godly expectations. What is it that keeps hope going?  Hope!

Someone said, “Life with Christ is endless hope, without Christ it is a hopeless end.”

As long as there is eternity, there is hope, because hope is believing when you cannot see or understand, and waiting when you cannot have faith or patience.

I cannot see today, but tomorrow I will. It may be a whispering hope, but have hope. Those of you who are sick, have hope.

Those who have a loved one in a cemetery, you have hope to see them again.

In the very last words in Genesis, it is said of Joseph when he died, “they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.”  The word coffin here is the same word used for “hope chest.”

The song writer said, “On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand … my hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”

All hope here on earth begins at Calvary and ends at the rapture.

Here are three encouraging thoughts:

HOPE IS THE DESIRE OF OR FOR AN OBJECT.

HOPE IS THE EXPECTATION OF OBTAINING IT.

HOPE IS THE CONFIDENCE OF BELIEVING IT.

HOPE!
