There are symmetries or little balances in Scripture that keep presenting themselves. While I have some of them in mind all at once I'd like to record them. For example, when Job lost his children during Satan's assault on him, he didn't know that he would have seven more children restored. When Moses lost the privilege of entering the Promised Land through his disobedience, he didn't know that one day he would stand on the Mount of Transfiguration with Jesus and Elijah as a kind of consolation prize. When 3000 Israelites were slain at the foot of Mount Sinai for worshipping the golden calf while Moses was receiving the Ten Commandments, the Levites that slew them didn't know that some hundreds of years later 3000 would repent and come alive spiritually at the commemoration of the giving of those same commandments when Peter preached to them at Pentecost. Speaking of Peter, when he denied knowing Jesus three times he didn't know that a resurrected Jesus would give him three chances to express his love instead, and be re-commissioned each time to feed and shepherd His flock. God has so many ways of restoring the years that the cankerworm has eaten, so many ways of making up to us our losses, disappointments and setbacks, that it's impossible for us to keep up with them all!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
