The Bible says that one of these days those who are alive and love Jesus will hear a trumpet sound and then they will be changed in a twinkling of an eye, then we will lift off from the ground and meet Jesus in the air and go to heaven with Him. It says that we are to encourage each other with these words. I think that the day is coming soon when this series of events will take place.
There are several very positive things about this event. The first is that we will get a new body. The body of our humble state will be changed into conformity with the body of Jesus by the exertion of the power that He has to conform everything to His will. I wonder almost continually what my new body will look like and what it will feel like and what I will be able to do, how strong I will be, how we move and travel and how smart will I be, how clear and powerful will be my thinking. If I am going to be just like the body of Jesus it is going to be amazing, for sure. My present body aches and hurts most of the time, but I just remind myself of my new body whenever the pain gets bad. Can’t come to soon for me.
The second cool thing is that we will be gone from this earth with all that is going on. I get so weary of all the conflict, with all the weirdness, with all the evil and it will be so refreshing to be in a perfect place with none of what we are experiencing now. A place of perfect beauty, amazing joy, and abounding love among all. The light at the end of the tunnel for sure. I truly believe it is any day now, so live like it.
