Whispering Hope


We are looking forward to God's promise of new heavens and a new earth afterwards,where there will be only goodness.-- 2 Peter 3:13 (LB)


O dear God, "Where there will be only goodness."
After centuries of war, greed, and lust.
After indulgences shamelessly practiced
After hatred, hostility, jealousy and abuse.
Murder and martyrdom, crime
and cruelty, curses and rebellion.
After whimpering cries from starving children
After tragedy and catastrophe
Loneliness and despair
At last... at long last"There will be only goodness.
"O dear Lord Your promise is Your guarantee
But please hurry a little!

Yes, He promised us new earth and New Jerusalem - this time is near.

Watch therefore and pray at any time, so you can avoid all this, what is coming and stand before the Son of Man. - Luke 21, 36.

What I can't understand is with the internet now connecting all instantly, WHY do we as people lack the concerted effort and the will to change the bad things???
