Greetings Pastor, First Lady, Saints and Friends I greet you in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Scripture: Rev. 21:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.

Ref.-Is. 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord has spoken it.

Rev 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Others: Is.35:10, 61:3,5:19 and let us not forget Mat. 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted

Theme: Cry On God's got a Plan.

History: The book of Revelation calls itself an Apocalypse (or revelation), which Jesus gave, for his servants, through his angle to John.
Revelation-has to do with disclosing, uncovering, or unveiling what previously was hidden, making known what had been secret-used theologically, however, revelation refers to God's deliberate manifestation of his plans, his character, and himself.

Intro: In today's world we are faced with many trials tribulations. Especially if you happen to be Christian you have the world in all its self-centeredness and man instituted regulations, tugging; if not at you, then at those whom you love. You go through trusting God, believing the word, praying and crying out to God. You say,"I have my help, I can make it. Then "it" happens. What? It... disappointment, broken promise, shattered dreams, broken relationships, deceptions, disaster,

Let's look at the word TEARS. Trials, Errors, Anger, Repentance, Salvation.

Consider with me in the 1st place Trials

Trial- a state of pain or anguish that tests patience, endurance, or belief. Turn to Hebrew 11:36 -And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment

1 Peter 1:7 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 honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus
• All of us will have trials
• All of us will be put to the test
• All of us will be cast down, but not utterly destroyed as
scripture has said

We will at one time or the other have to experience a trial or two or three or four or five. .. and so on
But, we must remember that as we "go through" God is right there with us.
• As we "go through" we must remember that the way has already been made for us to come out. (1 Corin. 10:13)
• As we "go through" we must remember that.. Your word have I hid in my heart.
• As we "go through"...greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world
• As we "go through"...who God bless, no man can curse .
• As we go through...If we faint not.

Shake somebody and tell them...DON'TFAINT!

Consider with me in the second place Errors

An error is an act, an assertion, or a belief that "unintentionally" deviates (turns from) what is correct, right or true. A mistake
• We have all made them
• We have all at one time or another turned fro God to seek our own way
• Thought we knew what was best for us
• Thought, well I'll let God work on that part and I'll work on this part
• Thought that "we" had all the right answers

Rom. 3:23 for all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.

Tell someone you're not alone.

Consider with me in the third place Anger

Anger is a strong feeling of displeasure or hostility.
• We all feel this emotion at one time or another
• For one reason or the other
• Due to one situation or another

Eph. 4:26 says:
Be angry and sin not; let not the sun go down on your wrath
• What ever angers you resolve it before night comes
• Pray about it
• Let God truly lead you and you will have the right answer
• When all else fails, just let it go.
• Release yourself from it grips.

Tell someone (EXHALE)

Consider with me in the fourth place Repentance

It is a sincere repentance, Involving acknowledgement of wrong doing in the since of both admitting guilt and feeling guilty.
Realize that repentance will restore, heal and replace feelings of guilt and inadequacies.
• Repentance is a gift from God that keeps you faultless and blameless
• It brings you peace
• It comforts and heals
Remember true repentance requires some crying out to God. Is a sorrowful, soul pleading cry for forgiveness.
• Repentance is not only for the unsaved but for the saved as well.

Tell somebody "I Like That"!

Lastly consider with me Salvation:

Salvation is defined as: Preservation or deliverance from destruction, difficulty or evil. A source, means or cause of such preservation or deliverance. Theological definition is a deliverance from the power of penalty of sin; redemption.

Mat. 1:21: And she shall bring forth a son and thou shalt call his name Jesus (Savior) for he shall save his people from their sins.

• We know that if we confess with our mouth and believe in our heart that God hath raised him from the dead we shalt be saved
• We also know that once we receive him, the real trouble starts
• Enemy doesn't want us to have a gift that he refused
• He is jealous and mad at you .:. His job is to cause us to fall and to try to keep us down
• He needs to try to get as many as he can before Jesus comes back.

Tell somebody "It won't be me!"

In my conclusion:

What I have tried to convey is that, the tears we shed are not by any means without meaning. For we have seen that trials, errors, anger and repentance all lead you to salvation. Or, to Jesus.
So saints, when you find yourself down-don't count yourself out. When you feel alone, know that God is ever present, and he will never leave you or forsake you. He said he would stick closer than a brother. Know that as we stay focused on him that hurts, pains, disappointments and maybe even death will come, but we must stand fast in god. We must be like the tree by the river, well rooted and grounded in God's word.

Knowing that when it is all said and done. We shall be with our Lord. That all the tears we have shed during this journey we are on in Christ. That his promises are true, and there will be no more crying, pain or death and God himself shall wipe away all tears from our eyes and we shall inherit the earth along with all of his promises to us.
So, cry on. God's got a plan.

If there be any here today that may be in the midst of a trial or you are experiencing things in your life that you don't quite know how to deal with. Why don't you come today, accept Jesus as your
Lord and Savior.
