Unlimited: Look Forward to the Heavenly Kingdom
Feb 11, 2022 237
And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom (2 Timothy 4:18, NKJV).
The city of the great King is a place of active service. Ransomed spirits serve Him day and night in His temple. They never cease to fulfil the good pleasure of their King.
Jerusalem the golden is the place of communion with all the people of God. We shall fellowship forever with the noble host of the elect, all reigning with Him, who by His love and His power has brought them safely home. We shall not sing solos, but we will praise our King together in a great chorus.
What are you looking forward to the most in the heavenly kingdom?
Heaven is a place of victory realised. Every victory in this life is just a foretaste of the joy that awaits you when the Lord will tread Satan under your feet, and you find yourself more than a conqueror through Him who has loved you.
Paradise is a place of security. When you enjoy the full assurance of faith, you have the pledge of that glorious security which will be yours when you are a perfect citizen of the heavenly Jerusalem… I offer my thanks, even now in this life, to Him whose love has taught me to long for the heavenly Jerusalem; but my thanks will be even louder in eternity, when I come home to that heavenly kingdom. – Charles Spurgeon
