Can’t Wait for Heaven
I can’t wait for heaven… what I mean by that is, I am really excited for it to come, sort of like the way I couldn’t wait for Disneyland when I was a kid. Thankfully, my tastes have matured somewhat and I am more deeply looking forward to eternity than I was the Matterhorn or Fantasyland.
I recently read Revelation again with my wife. I’ve taught the book, I’ve read and re-read it, I’ve memorized portions of it, I’ve even listened to it on tape or CD. But everytime I come to chapters 19-22 I am thrilled all over again at what God has in store for His universe and for true believers.
I recommend the reading of this book. Don’t be afraid. It’s the only book in the Bible that specifically promises blessing to those who read and keep its words. It will do your soul good to realize that this life is not all there is. There’s an eternal existence to live for right now.
I know that in many churches, they won’t touch the book of Revelation with a ten-foot pole. Too hard to understand, they say. Too controversial, others chime in.
But listen: it’s the revelation of Jesus Christ, not the hiding of Jesus Christ. It’s easy to understand, if one keeps the main idea in mind. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy (Rev. 19:10). In other words, it’s all about Him and His kingdom. The Lamb of God has become the Lion of the tribe of Judah. He is King Jesus.
Don’t you love Him?
