End Times

I listened to a news report last night about what has happened in Italy and was reminded that some of these same things have been foretold for our country in the End Times. We should make ourselves ready, make sure that we know positively that if we died tonight that we would go to heaven and live with Jesus Christ and other members of the Trinity.

I was reading in Revelation about a scene in heaven that thrilled me. I'm putting it into my own words starting with chapter four.

"A door was standing open into heaven and a voice told me to come up. I did and saw a throne where One sat that was as beautiful as a jewel and a rainbow like a halo was around the throne. There were 24 smaller thrones that surrounded the large throne where 24 elders sat dressed in white garments and wearing golden crowns.

Thunder and lightening came from the throne and before it was a sea of glass like crystal where four living creatures sang night and day, "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God, Almighty, Who was and Who is and Who is to come."

Then the elders fell down before Him on the throne and threw down their crowns saying, "Worthy art Thou, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for Thou didst create all things, and because of Thy will they were created."

And I saw a Lamb standing and He came and took the book out of the right hand of the One Who sat on the throne. The four living creatures and the 24 elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having a harp or a golden bowl filled with the prayers of the saints. They sang: "Worthy art Thou to take the book, and to break its seals; for Thou wast slain, and didst purchase for God with Thy blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. And Thou hast made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth."

Then myriads and myriads and thousands and thousands of Angels, the living creatures and elders were saying in a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessings."

And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them were saying, " To Him that sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever."

The four living creatures kept saying, "Amen." And the elders fell down and worshiped.

What a glorious peek into what heaven is like! Until Christ comes for us, we'll have to be satisfied with John's glimpse.

Thank you for joining me in my walk and sneak-peek into heaven.
