“We are Christ ambassador’s….

By Pastor Donny Granberry

Ambassador – (Webster’s) a diplomatic agent of the highest rank accredited to a foreign government or sovereign as the resident representative of his or her own government or sovereign or appointed for a special and often temporary diplomatic assignment.

We are agents of the highest rank of a foreign government for a special and temporary assignment.

• We are agents with the highest rank (we have been adopted, and joint heirs with Christ)

• We are of a government, not of this world (and of the increase of His government there will be no end, he has been given a name above all other names)

• We are on a special temporary assignment (if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am you may be there also)

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 NIV

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
