(v.3) The clouds be rolled back as a scroll, the trump shall resound and the Lord shall
descend, Even so- it is well with my soul.
A. At His coming we (the faithful) will find wellness (peace) in our souls.
1. When the world comes to an end the faithful will find peace. Peace that is found as we leave the world and enter our reward, a dwelling place with our God and our redeemer
a. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all
who obey Him, (Hebrews 5:9)
2. Though the world comes to an end, for the faithful, the lifestyle they have always desired begins. It is a life that is spent and is filled with glories and rest provided by Him who loves us most of all
a. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
b. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
Thoughts to consider
1. Is it well with your soul? Are you at peace because you are one of God’s children?
2. Without God we will know no peace, with God, the faithful can find peace at any time
a. Come and hear, all you who fear God, And I will declare what He has done for my soul.
b. In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.
