God wants us in Heaven:
Updated: Aug 26, 2019
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish…
What is it to perish? It is to die in our sins. It was once described like this: (without bright angels to smile upon us as they wait to carry us away from earth; to die without the Saviour's glorious presence to cheer us in the valley of the shadow of death. It is to be turned away from the shut door of our Father's mercy, because, like the foolish virgins, we are not ready when the bridegroom comes. To perish is to lose the smile of God, the company of the redeemed, the society of angels, the glories of the heavenly world, and, with no ray of comfort or gleam of hope, to be driven away into outer darkness, into misery and woe, without deliverance and without end. The very thought of this awful perdition made Jesus weep over Jerusalem and say, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem: thou that killest the prophets and stonest them that are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not.") Folks we may not have much on this side of eternity, but what waits for me on the other side is beyond my words according to the Bible. The half for sure has half been said what is waiting for God’s people who know Him as Lord. Glory to His Name!!
