But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Cor. 2:9)

I love this verse, don’t you? Many times when I need to encourage my own heart, I think of this verse. I remind myself that despite all the beauty around me, Heaven will have more. I can’t even fathom this in my finite brain!

I remember when I was first saved, how I looked for the rapture to happen at any moment! I looked up so often then. I have thought about the rapture every day since my salvation, however, not with the same enthusiasm. I’ve allowed the cares of this world to slowly quench my enthusiasm. Forgive me, Father. So I sit here this morning, renewing my strength and renewing my enthusiasm.

1 Cor. 15:51-55, Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Titus 2:13, Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Acts 1:11, Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

So once again, I am looking up!! Our Blessed Saviour’s return is imminent because the Word says so. Our Saviour’s return can be at any moment so I need to be busy doing His work and leave the cares of this world in HIS care.

  1. How we all look forward to this day.
    Rev: 21:4; “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

    I love this hymn….what comfort and blessing it brings to my heart.

    WHEN WE SEE CHRIST
    Oft times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
    We’re tempted to complain, to murmur and despair;
    But Christ will soon appear to catch His Bride away,
    All tears forever over in God’s eternal day.

    It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
    Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
    One gliimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
    So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

    Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
    We’re tossed and driven on , no human help in sight;
    But there is one in heav’n who knows our deepest care,
    Let Jesus solve your problem – just go to Him in pray’r.

    It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
    Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
    One gliimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
    So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

    Life’s day will soon be o’er, all storms forever past,
    We’ll cross the great divide, to glory, safe at last;
    We’ll share the joys of heav’n – a harp, a home, a crown,
    The tempter will be banished, we’ll lay our burden down.

    It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
    Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
    One gliimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
    So bravely run the race till we see Christ.
