Have you ever daydreamed about taking a vacation to an exotic tropical island? In 1998 a television show titled Fantasy Island premiered. Two of the main characters that stand out in my mind are Ricardo Montalbon who played the role of Mr. Roarke, and Herve Villechaize who played the role of Tattoo.
Fantasy Island was an exclusive tropical island visited by guest who paid $50.000, to fulfill their ultimate fantasy. At the beginning of the show Tattoo rushes to ring the bell and shouts “The plane! The plane!” to announce that the guest were about to land. Mr.Roarke announces “My dear guest, I am Mr. Roarke, your host ,“Welcome to Fantasy Island.”
Shows like this portray exotic beaches, with all types of exotic surroundings, even exotic foods. In these shows and others like it, we saw people enjoying themselves, sunbathing, shopping, eating, etc. The scenery was almost breath-taking.
Imagine yourself lying on a beach covered with golden sand, with the sea so blue, and so clear that you can see the bottom. You can also imagine exotic flowers and trees, with a sweet- smelling breeze that seemed to sweep your feet.
Why dream? You can have an experience that greatly exceeds this fantasy? Heaven is the paradise that all Christians look forward to. Men often refer to exotic places as paradise. Earthly exotic places can’t compare with heaven.
To find a paradise that you can live in eternally read Revelation 21. Mentioned there is a city made of pure gold like unto glass, even the street of the city is pure gold. There are also pearls and precious stones found there.
Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior by grace through faith. Because as Christians we have more in store for us, than any earthly exotic island.
