The Big O

What is heaven like?  Will we ever know?  What is there for us after death?   Will the Lord let us go?  To heavenly mansions?  Will He show ... your place with Him?

For those who love the Lord, who are ransomed, restored and redeemed by the precious blood of Christ Jesus, He will share His loving kindness.   We have the blessed hope of a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness dwells.  This is no vain hope for the Lord Jesus will rule and reign supreme over all as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Sometimes Christians can taste in this life that heavenly life, and know the blessings of the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.  There can be times of spiritual bliss, peace and joy that no human or worldly enterprise can bring about.  Only Zion's children can know that intimate relationship which brings this wonderful life, abundant and spiritually rich.  It is not related or achieved through wealth, worldly wisdom, prestige, privilege or personal power.  It is a gracious gift of God to give eternal life, abundant life which can be, in some small measure, tasted and experienced in this age. But it will be fully manifested and known in the life to come, in the time when Jesus comes again to rule and reign. Hallelujah!

I thank God that He reveals His loving kindness and the riches of His grace now and in eternity.

Eye has not seen,
Ear has not heard,
No mind has conceived
 what God has prepared for those who love Him.

We have glimpses.  We see through a glass darkly.

Yet one day we shall see Him face to face..

And that will be amazing.  Orgasmic. Overwhelming.   The Big O.  O it will taste so good and take You completely (if you are His).
