As we draw nearer to that glorious gathering unto our Lord Jesus, how important it is for each of us to see ‘the big picture’ during our earthly pilgrimage! Having a heavenly mindset allows us to detach ourselves from the world and all of its empty attractions.
Yes, in our present condition we do indeed groan, but we also look for that glorious promise of being with Jesus in the new heavens and new earth. “Seeing” the new heaven and earth takes the sting out of even death itself.
Jesus said that when we see the prophetic signs begin to come to pass, we’re to, “look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption draws near.” Saints, “our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” The door of heaven will open soon, and we will be home at last!
Rejoice, be glad, and honor the Lamb of God! The King is coming!
