Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:3-9
The heavenly joy that came with the new life was meant to carry the child of God through this life’s darkest times into the perfect day. I mean the joy of salvation. Joy is disappearing from the earth. As this world sinks deeper and deeper into darkness and despair, the Holy Spirit will pour upon true children of God supernatural joy that will make people marvel. This is why God ordained these sacred feasts so as to rekindle and restore to those who have come out of darkness into His marvelous light joy unspeakable and full of glory.
