"Although a wicked man commits a hundred crimes and still lives a long time--yet surely I know that it will be well with God-fearing men, who are reverent before God!" Ecclesiastes 8:12
Believer, it will be well with you!
Consider how safe, how sure, how happy are you!
For when others go to Hell--you must go to Heaven!
When others go to the devil--you must go to God!
When as others go to eternal prison--you must be set at liberty, and at ease!
When others must roar for sorrow of heart--you shall sing for the joy of heart!
Consider, you must have . . .
all your well-spent life to follow you--instead of all your sins;
the glorious blessings of the gospel--instead of the dreadful curses and condemnations of the law;
the blessing of the loving Father--instead of a fiery sentence from the righteous Judge.
Let death come when it will, it can do you no harm; for it will be but only a passage . . .
out of a prison--into a palace;
out of a sea of troubles--into a haven of rest;
out of a crowd of enemies--into an innumerable company of true, loving, and faithful friends;
out of shame, reproach, and contempt--into exceeding great and eternal glory!
For death shall not hurt you with his sting, nor bite you with his soul-murdering teeth; but shall be a welcome guest to you--in that it is sent to free you from your troubles which you are in, while here in this poor world.
