EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

TEXT: Revelation 21: 2-4
KEY VERSE: John 14: 2 “In my father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
From earth to heaven is by death or rapture. The righteous man is taken away from the evil to come. Prepare yourself in righteousness for death or rapture. It was when I read Delightful Revelation Of Heaven and How To Get There that I knew that some time it is the delight of God to allow some people to die.
The joy of heaven is great when they see one soul enter heaven. They all jubilate and make great noise. The people are happy with their God that another one has come in. Satan has failed. In God's wisdom, He is taking the righteous ones one-by-one to heaven and bringing eternal comfort to their souls. God is doing great job, both in heaven and on earth.
He wants the saints in heaven to also hear report of what is happening on earth. So it is the delight of God to remove righteous, diligent, faithful ones from this sinful world and take them to heaven. But majority will be going in the rapture and that shall be very soon. The ransomed saints shall have glorious eternal bodies.
Have you noticed the behavior of a child when you put a new cloth on him or her. Excited, he will turn and say mummy see, Daddy see, he will go to his friend see my cloth, see my cloth, touch it now. The body that God will give you, you will look at that body and just be laughing. Glorious body! Shinning body!
If you were deformed in any part of your body, maybe one of your hands was cut off, over there all will come back in fullness. If you were blind, your eyes will be opened and made perfect. If you were lame, your leg will be straight and made perfect, and not only straight you will look perfect and beautiful.
Your beauty will be more than the beauty of all the people on earth put together. When compared with earthly artificial beauty of Miss Nigeria, Miss Africa, Miss America all put together, your glorious body will so exceed them that you will prefer to throw that fading beauty away to the dustbin. It Is wonderful, the reward waiting for you is great.
Thought for the day: The ransomed saints shall have glorious eternal bodies.
Song for the day: Heavenly Father You are wonderful….
Bible reading for the day: Haggai; Revelation 16.
