12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do
Ezekiel 11:19-20 Amplified Bible
19 And I will give them one heart [a new heart] and I will put a new spirit within them; and I will take the stony [unnaturally hardened] heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh [sensitive and responsive to the touch of their God],
20 That they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances, and do them. And they shall be My people, and I will be their God.So what is that Silver Lining that we all look for. The scriptures counsel that those who diligently seek shall find. I had the impression that there is a Silver Lining but in a different way. I know that the silver lining is the Atonement, and I know it is the hope and promise of the reality of the Savior Jesus Christ and his promised return for us. Are we the only generation that has hoped for a silver lining, a ray of hope or a reason to continue on? Think about the disciples in Jerusalem, the Saviors last day on earth; when the Savior had given his last prayer, and given the gift of the Holy Spirit, as everyone was looking at him, watching him leave and ascend into the cloud,what were they feeling?
9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
