Final Save

1 Corinthians 15:52

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Being human we go through time and in the process we undergo changes, some of them physical and some of them mental, Some of the changes we make are decisions on our part, while others are divine intervention. When we review the past, especially at an older age, memories of emotional moments are blurred by the physical degradation of the body. We may find our memories are not as clear or accurate as we would like.

My knowledge of God’s Word, my relationship with God, and what God has done for me is a spiritual journey and as such my failing memory cannot be trusted. 

Ephesians 1:4

even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love

We were chosen long before we were ever born. In God’s will we were always His. We aere destined for a life with Him that we have not yet discovered because sin is still present. When we are changed in that final delivery into the eternal realm, sin will be absent from our lives.

I look forward to that with the same faith that pulls me forward without knowing what tomorrow brings until God speaks. We live this life of faith because we are on a journey to our final destination and each step is one of uncertainty because we trust God.

My final question in all this is rhetorical in nature.

When we are delivered and we see Him face to face, what happens to faith?
