'Comfort, O comfort ye My people,says your God.
Speak kindly to Jerusalem: and call out to her that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been removed'
"And brethren, what sort of place shall heaven be?
Heaven shall be a place of perfect rest and peace.
They that dwell there shall have no more conflict with the world,
the flesh and the devil;
their warfare is accomplished,
and their fight is fought;
at length they may lay aside
the armor of weakness and decay.
Our faces shall no more be pale and sad;
no more shall we go out from the company of those we love and be parted forever - that word, "farewell" shall never be heard again.
There shall be no more anxious thoughts about tomorrow to spoil our enjoyment,
no sharp and cutting words to wound our souls, because our wants will come to a perpetual end, and all around us shall be harmony and love.
There we shall labor and toil no more,
for the days of mouring shall be ended.
O Christian brethren,
what is our light affliction when compared to such an eternity as this?"
(J.C. Ryle, The True Christian, 275-6)
Have a glorious day in the Lord.
I would love to hear from you.
