As human beings, we all have desires, but it may surprise some of you that Jesus does too. One of them is the keen longing to have us with Him, for it is with great joy and anticipation that He eagerly prepares and waits for us. Jesus said just before His earthly departure nearly two thousand years ago, that He was “going to prepare a place for you, that where I am, there you may be also” – John 14:2-3.
So why aren’t we in heaven yet? Apparently, things are not quite ready, but all the indications are very clear that our home is just about complete and we might be moving in very soon! Jesus will whisper to all who are awaiting His appearing by saying, “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!”
Sadly, for some Christians, the soon coming of Jesus sounds more like something to be feared rather than a great blessing to anticipate. Dear fellow believer, know the nature and disposition of our loving Redeemer. He will be calling us to His place soon enough. It is a place that no mind can conceive. A place that even human imagination is incapable of visiting. It is a place unlike any other. Jesus is coming soon! “Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus,” is to be our heart’s desire; is it yours ?
