The gap between this present reality and the blossoming of the true life of body and soul, will be non-existent. As the Christian steps over the threshold of eternity we will become more ourselves, than we have ever been, and a perfect image of Christ, which is our true desire. Never again will corruption, sickness, poverty or sin, ever snap at our heels, but we shall be truly free to extend our abilities, explore the many worlds beyond the space and time that we are presently confined to.
We will have no need of anything, and no strength will be lacking as we live as we are supposed to live, in true fellowship with the Spirit of God and the bodily presence of the Saviour. We shall be safe forever in the loving arms of a Heavenly Father, who has purposed that we should be there with Him. All our Fear will completely dissipate and love will be made complete in every realm, so that safety and confidence will be our constant experience.
I don’t know what I will do, because I wouldn’t be able to take it in anyway in this present restrictive atmosphere, but everything will be the expression of enjoyment, love and ultimate creativity.
No one will hold the Redeemed back, or remind us that we are only human. We shall stretch our hands out and praise our maker with every fibre of our being, and the strength of rejoicing will fill every part of mind and body as we fill up with his power and presence.
No longer will there be need for comfort or refuge or restraint, as the wisdom and majesty of God fills our being and we know him truly, and the power that raised Christ from the dead.
As we walk the ways of our life in the here and now, we walk closer to him with each passing day and feel and know a growing knowledge of his ways, truth and love, so that when he calls us home, we will go gladly, and it will not be a wrench, for we will be familiar with his presence and call out his name as we meet him.
What it will be to meet him face to face, I cannot know. To have no regrets, because he has washed them all away and to have treasure for him, to give him, will cause those wonderful words to be heard… “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord…”
What a gathering.! What rejoicing as we enter his felt and known presence for ever…
