My Home is Not A Real Home Yet

These past few days I'm reminded by God that this world is our temporary pitstop. 

"Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
(Jesus, Luke 9:58)

It is indeed very beautiful to have a loving home community, strong home church, an accepting family at home and familiar faces who beam with their smiles widely when they see you around. 

But remember that a home is still not a real home yet. Read about New Jerusalem and the wonder that God'll bring for those who love Him at the end of the ages. 

No matter how much we love our home, a home is not the real home that Jesus has promised us. That's why we eagerly wait for His second coming and the final judgment day. We're on the waiting of the revelation of our true home: heaven. 

To be with the one we love, to see His glory and worship Him together with the elders, for the rest of our lives... No pain, no tears, no sorrow, no injustice, no evil, imagine that kind of home :)

In the last days the mountain of the Lord ’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; 
it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. 

Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” 

The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. 

They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. 

Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. 

Everyone will sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the Lord Almighty has spoken. 

All the nations may walk in the name of their gods, but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever. (Micah 4:1-5 NIV)
