The other day a thought struck me, bringing great joy and excitement to me, that Teresa and I are going to be living in Israel soon!
For those of us who follow Christ in our faith, we have a new hometown to look forward to in the near future for eternity!
“The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of My God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from My God; and I will also write on them My new name.”
( Revelation 3:12 )
There are two hometown options for a person to choose from in regard to eternity. The city of New Jerusalem is the preferred option, the second option is much, much less desirable as it is in a desert climate.
Have you asked the Lord for your free airfare reservation for your transportation? If you will love Him and ask of Him, He will write your name in the book of reservations. He has already paid the price for you.
Be ready, as His charter air service will be arriving soon to pick up all of His pre-ticketed friends. Watch for the “Rapture” charter air service whose promo tag is “You will be Caught Up into the Air by our service!” The flight’s boarding call will be announced by a trumpet blast.
Your reservation is not only for the Rapture air service. It also serves as the reservation for your very own home in the city of New Jerusalem, a home designed by Him specifically with you in mind. The construction has been underway for about 2,000 years!
As a beautiful song says:
“People get ready,
Jesus is coming,
To take from the world His own.”
