18 But not a hair of your head will perish(NRSV)
God promised His children that death is not the end, but only the beginning of eternal life. Those who have been redeemed and reconciled to Him by His grace through faith in Yeshua will never perish but have everlasting life in His presence.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
By your patience possess your souls.
Even in the midst of the most horrible situations, God never forsakes His people.
But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I gave Egypt for your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
PRAY FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO PROCLAIM GOD’S PROMISES OF ETERNAL LIFE TO ISRAEL.
