‘Let your heart not be troubled, neither let it be afraid. I go to prepare a place for you and then I will come back and take you to Myself so that where I am, you shall be also. In my Father’s house there are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you so.’ ‘Absent in the body, present with the Lord’
We are citizens of a Celestial City with foundations, Whose Builder and Maker is God. That city that Abraham hoped for, that City whose streets are paved with Gold, that city where there will be no sickness, no disease, no crying, no pain, no sorrow, a city of joy unspeakable and full of glory, no wickedness, no weakness, no darkness; a city where the sun will not be necessary but the glory of the Lord shall be its brightness. Heb11:10
10For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.Heb11:10
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, NIVPhil3:20
1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2In 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.
3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also .NIV John14:1-3
O how I long to go and be with Him, my Saviour, but it is more beneficial for you that I stay. For I have a work to do, the work that the Father gave me to do. I must be about my Father’s business and finish it. Jesus finished His work and cried, ‘It is finished!’ Paul pressed on for the mark of the prize of the high calling in Jesus and when he finished proclaimed, ‘I have fought the good fight, I have kept the faith , I have run, finished my race.
I must fight the good fight of faith ahead of me. I must keep the faith as I fight. I must run and finish my course and race, and finish well.
I must not defile my garment as I wait for my Master. For the Marriage Supper of the Lamb shall come and the Bride must make Herself ready.
In my Home, there shall be tens upon thousands, upon thousands, that no one can number, all praising the Living God, singing, ‘Great and marvellous are Your works, O Lord God Almighty, just and true are Your ways O Lord. Who shall not fear You , and glorify Your holy Name? Great and marvellous are You ways O Lord. Rev19:7-8NKJV Rev 7:9 For you alone are holy.
