Not A Dream At All!

I heard a loud voice shout from the throne: God's home is now with his people. He will live with them, and they will be his own. Yes, God will make his home among his people.  He will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain. These things of the past are gone forever.  Then the one sitting on the throne said: I am making everything new. Write down what I have said. My words are true and can be trusted.  Everything is finished! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will freely give water from the life-giving fountain to everyone who is thirsty.

Revelation 21: 3 - 6

If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, there will come a moment when there will be no more death, suffering, crying or pain.  Everything will be new!  There will be no more corruption and decay.  Nothing will be broken and in need of repair.  The frustration of living on this dying earth will go away and be replaced by the total satisfaction of living in the presence of God Almighty!  

Your first reaction to the reality of living with God in Heaven may be to think that it is a dream!  But the dream goes on and you come to know that this wonderful dream is not a dream at all, but is the new and eternal reality!

Your job on this earth is not to work to qualify for Heaven.  Jesus paid that price and if you love and believe in Him and are obedient to His commands you will go there.  Your task is to make yourself ready for Heaven.  In doing that, you will draw many others to know Jesus as well!

“Lord Jesus, help me to be ready for Heaven, so that when that Day comes I will be perfectly at peace with You forever!  May Your Name be praised!  Amen.”
