Greatest Prize of Completing The Race

Then one of the elders asked me, "These in white robes--who are they, and where did they come from?"  I answered, "Sir, you know." And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.  Therefore, "they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. 

Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat.  For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.

Revelation 7:13-17, 21:4, 22:1-5

Don't you find it beautiful?

It's a place where tears are nowhere to be found.. No disease, illness, any kind of sickness of the body and of the soul. Nomore broken heart, no war, no death, no sorrow, no pain, no condemnation, no evil.

It's only us the saints together with God. It's a place of eternal worship, continual hymn of praises and adoration, a place of endless joy and laughter, ceaseless dance and for all we know, God is the only thing that matters in the world.

We'll see God sitting on the throne, side by side with Jesus and all His angels. The old-timed saints that we always know in the Bible such as David, Abraham, Isaiah, and even Adam and Eve will be there, together with us, worshipping the King.

This is just the right thing to keep me walking straight in the right path. God's path. The earth isn't where our hopes as Christians lie. And although heaven on earth is such an amazing thing, we should look forward to the greatest prize of going through this Christian lifestyle.

Being a Christian is never easy, you know. It's so much easier to do all the wrong things.. The heart is vile by nature so following God means dying to all those nature. What a tough life, sigh.

Till I see you face to face, God.

God bless you!
