Good Morning! Continuing my thoughts about heaven I was reminiscing about the scripture in John 14:2&3 that says... [Jhn 14:2-3 NKJV] 2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, [there] you may be also. God's house is Heaven and he is inviting us to come into His home, not as a visitor, but as a permanent resident. Inside His home are mansions. It doesn't really say that you and I are the recipients of those mansions but that Jesus is going to prepare a "place" for us.
That's alright with me as long as I am there to enter it. It's not a fixer-upper that He has remodeled, but a brand new place created by Him. He has been working at it for 2,000 years in our time or 2 days in God's time.
Think about it, the whole city of brand new places are sitting there uninhabited waiting to be filled. I bet Jesus is anxious just waiting to show us what he has personally made for us. I can see Him asking His Father...is it time!
You see, timing is everything! [2Pe 3:9 NKJV] 9 "The Lord is not slack concerning [His] promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." When the last sinner is saved then... [Mat 24:31 NKJV] 31 "And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Jesus will see the looks on our faces when our new home in heaven is presented to us. What a time that will be when all the empty places will all be filled. Not one vacancy will there be. I could speculate about other things that might be in heaven, but honestly, our minds are so limited that we don't really know all the things He has for us because we have never seen the things He has prepared for us!
I am just giddy just thinking about it! So to quote the last part of Revelation 22:20 ... Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
