After Jesus had risen, He ascended into Heaven…but He said, “I’LL BE BACK!” He left us here to fulfill the Great Commission of spreading the Gospel.
Read John chapter 14. You will be blessed! Jesus told us in that passage, “Let not your hearts be troubled: You believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL come again and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
I was thinking about these verses the other day as I watched the glorious sunrise from my front window. The thought crossed my mind…if God made all of this beauty that surrounds me in six days time…what will Heaven be like? He’s been gone over two thousand years, “preparing” a place for ME and for YOU if you KNOW Him. If He did all of this in six days…I can’t even imagine what beauty Heaven holds!
We read in the book of Revelation, that the city of Heaven has twelve gates made of pearls, streets of gold, walls studded with precious stones…WOW! I can’t wait to see it; but the best part of all…I will see Jesus…face to face!
So when things down here get hard to cope with, remember what Jesus said: “Let NOT your heart be troubled…You believe in God…believe also in ME!…I WILL BE BACK AND TAKE YOU WITH ME!”
