In St. John’s Revelation we hear the distant triumph song of our God. Christ is not just our king, he is the king of the universe. In this sermon we looked at Christ’s crown, his conquest, and his return on the Last Day.
What will heaven be like? Often we struggle to grasp the picture God lays out for us of our eternal home by his side. All we know is a sinful, fallen world. While I love the carpet of fallen leaves, in heaven we won’t see death ever again. This Sunday we’ll work through some of the details of our heavenly home.
The Sun of Righteousness rising with healing in its wings might not be a familiar picture, but to God’s Old Testament people, it was one that they looked forward to. That sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t want to see that every morning?
“Jerusalem the Golden – with milk and honey blessed!” Feeling weary and oppressed? Can we ever comprehend what joys await us beyond the pearly gates? This Sunday – Saints Triumphant Sunday – we take time to ponder all that is heaven. In our message we’ll find that death means you’re only asleep in Jesus.
Are you looking forward to the end of the world? That might not sound like a great way to start your week, but God’s take on the end of the world is a great source of comfort for the Christian. Do you see the injustice in the world? God does too! Do you see the crippling effects of sin in the world? Of course, God sees the suffering. We learn from Scripture that creation groans under the weight of sin. Come this Sunday to hear God’s rescue plan. Because when God ends the world, he will take us home to heaven.
