Today, I felt led to speak about the glory of Heaven. In Exodus 25, we read how God described the design for the Ark of the Covenant, God’s Sanctuary, the Golden Lampstands, and more. As we read about the pure gold and special construction methods that God explained was necessary, I realized that these directions are to ensure that the “home” for God’s glory is perfect. “Exactly as I show you…, so you shall make it” (Exodus 25:9).
I believe that just as Jesus is preparing for us a place in Heaven, that He also is making sure that the home He is preparing for us is just as perfect (John 14:2-3, Revelation 21:18-23). God has called us righteous because what Jesus did for us on the cross (2 Cor 5:21); therefore, our heavenly bodies should also be provided a glorious place to spend eternity.
Will you get to experience Heaven? (John 3:3) You have the opportunity if you accept Jesus in your life.
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” – Romans 10:13
Hmmm, it’s pretty neat how these little revelations are revealed to us. I first started reading the Bible in 1994, and now 20 years later, I still discover little nuggets of truth and understanding that many times I don’t even remember reading in the past. I love how God has made the Bible a Living Word from Him (Hebrews 4:12), revealed to us, only when we are ready to understand.
