What bible verse is this too shall pass?
We have undoubtedly all heard the saying “this too shall pass” at some point in our lives, generally when someone is going through a difficult time or when you are not sure what to think about a situation’s ending.
However, while waiting for change in life, the adage “this, too, will pass” feels apt, knowing that any bad situation will eventually be in your rearview mirror rather than your windshield.
Many questions if this saying comes from the Bible, perhaps from the Lord Jesus Christ or one of His devoted disciples.
This too shall pass bible verse KJV
We all experience hard times. Sometimes, it seems like everything is stacked against us. And when this happens, you might wonder if life can get any worse. But then you remember there’s always light at the end of the tunnel, and things just seem to work out in the end. Consider what Jesus teaches us about suffering in Luke 14:1-6 which is commonly called “The Parable of the Unjust Steward.”
Acts 2:17 KJV
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
~ Acts 2:17 KJV
Joel’s prophesy was delivered to Israel. Its complete and final fulfillment is linked to Israel’s ‘times of refreshment,’ which will occur during Christ’s second coming and millennial kingdom rule when Israel has embraced Jesus as their Messiah.
However, for those Jewish believers who believed in Christ on that great day of Pentecost, their seasons of refreshing had already begun, as they were born-again of the Spirit of God and became members of Christ’s body.
The end days prophesied by Joel began during Christ’s first coming, but the prophecy’s entire majesty will be realized at His second coming.
That is why it is written in the Bible that it shall come to pass. This means that although it might take time, it will surely come to pass.
Isaiah 65:24 KJV
“It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; while they are still speaking, I will hear.
~ Isaiah 65:24 kjv
God has assured his children, “It will also come to be that before they call, I will respond; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.
This should not come as a surprise to us. God is all-knowing and sees the future before it happens.
He can discern the thoughts of all of His created beings, and He has a plan to redeem those who put their confidence in Him.
Having been given this assurance, we should learn to trust in God, who will always answer our prayers.
Ezekiel 12:25 KJV
For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.
~ Ezekiel 12:25 kjv
the word of the prophecy delivered out in his nature by true prophets never fails but is always fulfilled; as it concerned the siege of Jerusalem and the Jewish captivity:
It will not be prolonged any longer: I will say the word, and I will do it, saith the Lord God of hosts; should the prophecy of their destruction be given out in their days, but it should also be fulfilled in that time; which they could trust, because he who said it was the Lord God of hosts.
This too shall pass meaning
And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:
~ Genesis 8:6
After the flood that God had sent to destroy the end had ended, the rapidly draining water had dipped low enough that the summits of the mountains were seen in the preceding stanza.
This milestone was reached; Noah had to wait for another 40 days before sending out a raven via a window in the ark, maybe on the roof (Genesis 8:7).
This is a sailor’s strategy for finding dry land: a bird that does not want to land on the sea will fly high enough to look for miles around, and if it cannot find dry land, it will return to the boat (Genesis 8:9).
There appeared to be nothing acceptable close early on. This indicates that the visible mountaintops were most likely rather far away.
In our life, we may be experiencing different flood that is trying to drain us; we should not be afraid because this too shall pass away.
And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
This is the fourth particular date in the chronology of events surrounding the flood and its aftermath that we have been provided.
The first was the day it began to rain. The second was the day the ark touched down in Ararat’s highlands.
The summits of the mountains were visible above the waves on the third day.
One rationale for providing such precise dates is to stress the text’s historical aspect. The deluge is described as a real-life occurrence, not as something that happened “once upon a time.”
Just as this disaster ended at the appointed time, so will our sorrows and problems come to an end at God’s appointed time.
This too shall pass Deuteronomy
It’s easy to get discouraged by what we see around us or what we hear about others’ struggles. But there are ways to overcome discouragement and find hope in what lies ahead. The first step is remembering that God is still in control even when circumstances seem out of our control
But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
~ Deuteronomy 28:15
The term “curse” is used throughout Deuteronomy 28 to express what will happen if there is disobedience to God’s word as his children.
Curses are consequences of sin and rebellion against God in Deuteronomy 28.
God made it quite obvious how to comply and what would happen if you did not.
God still takes obedience seriously, even if the repercussions in Deuteronomy 28 are peculiar to Israel at this moment in their history.
The penalties for disobedience are severe. However, on the other hand, obedience is rewarded with blessings.
Even in our present-day world, we should be obedient to God’s word so that His blessings will pass in our lives.
And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
~ Deuteronomy 28:1
This chapter includes a lengthy discussion of two words: blessing and curse. This is because they are tangible things with severe consequences.
The blessings have been placed ahead of the curses. God is slow to anger but quick to forgive.
Blessing is something he enjoys doing. It is preferable to be led to what is good by a childlike trust of God’s favor than to be scared away from it by servile fear of his vengeance.
The benefit is inevitable if they faithfully listen to God’s words. Allow them to maintain religion, in its many forms and powers, in their families and nation, and God’s providence will prosper all of their exterior concerns.
Because the preceding blessings and curses are to be pronounced in such solemn tones, Moses takes the opportunity to expand on both of them, to show the Israelites what they and their posterity could expect from God, depending on whether they complied or disobeyed the terms of the covenant they were now under.
This too shall pass bible verse NIV
God is always there for us if we let Him into our hearts and minds. He has promised that no matter what happens, everything will be alright in the end. So when life throws at you a curve ball and seems like it could not get any worse, remember that God has promised that it will get better in the end.
And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, even among the survivors whom the LORD calls.
~ Joel 2:32 (NIV)
God, in His divine grace, provides an opportunity for Israel and the nations to be redeemed from His righteous wrath by calling on the name of the Lord.
We are told that it shall come to pass that “Whoever calls on the name of the LORD will be delivered,” we read.
This is God’s promise to anyone who put their faith in Christ for salvation during the Church Age and the Great Tribulation.
Everyone who prays to Him for rescue, both now and throughout the time of trouble, will be saved.
We live in the grace dispensation as Christians, and everyone who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus throughout this Church Age is saved by grace through trust in Him.
And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
~ Acts 2:21 (NIV)
It is simple to be rescued from the coming destruction that will face the world.
God has promised us that it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
The redemption terms could not be any clearer or more straightforward than this.
The offer is broad, accessible, and universal; the only stumbling block is the sinner’s heart.
This was recently observed by those who watched Jesus die on the cross. One of the robbers who died with Him entrusted his everlasting soul to Jesus.
Even though he had no good reason to be saved, Jesus told him that he would get to heaven.

“This too shall pass”
And when it does, it will not be because you were stronger, or braver, or more skilled than your opponent. It will be because you were smarter.
The things that happen to us in life are never as important as how we respond to them.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
~ Luke 21:33
Heaven and earth will pass away, but God’s words will stand the test of time. The prophecy comes to a basic conclusion. “No word of mine will ever go unfulfilled,” the Master said.

All creation, including the earth and the stars, will pass away in their own time, but these sayings of mine, which foresee their impending vanishing into nothingness, will outlast both earth and heaven.” Acts 21:33
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

In the past, many psalms and prophecies were prophesied by holy men of God, and Jesus came to fulfill them.
There are still more prophecies that will be fulfilled, like His second coming and His millennial reign on earth.
Heaven and earth will fade away one day, for this world has been tainted by sin, but the Lord Jesus’ Words remain faultless and will not pass away.
