Glories of Home
… for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God.
I have been thinking of a place called Heaven recently, with the loss of so many of my loved ones and friends, the splendor of Heaven has captivated my mind. The thought of heaven being filled with the presence of the Lord God Himself compelled this brief writing in hopes that your heart would be drawn to a place we call, “Home.” The Bible describes heaven as a place in which sadness, pain, and death itself will end, and the presences of the LORD will enrapture your soul for eternity.
Scripture tells us of a few sights we will see when we enter heaven’s gates. We will come into the very throne room of the Majesty on High. Knowing that God’s throne is forever in heaven gives us presences of mind that He is everlasting, unchangeable, and in complete authority. He governs the world, not merely as Creator, but as Savior.
We are told that around the throne of God is a rainbow as Ezekiel envisioned and experienced God’s glorious and triumphant grace (Ezekiel 1:28). We are clothed with the garments of salvation and covered with the robe of righteousness which is imputed to all believers (Isaiah 61:10). The saints clothed in His righteousness will be invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb, a feast prepared for His bride (Revelation 19:9).
These are only a few of the sights that we will see as we enter the splendor of heaven. Our journey “Home” will be the most magnificent trip ever taken. No human could ever compose a city like heaven where we will dwell with Christ forever. How glorious it will be and yet, this is only a dim account of what heaven will be like. At first glance, we will see His nail-scarred hands. Every knee will bow before the One who was slain and all will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God (Philippians 2:10-11).
Lord, thank You for heaven.
