John 14:2-3, Revelation 21:9-21

Revelation 22:1-6, 12-16

The other day I was driving and a cloud caught my eye.  It looked like it had pink cotton candy on top of it.  Wouldn’t that be great if it really was cotton candy?  Well, things like that don’t happen on Earth, but if God wanted to, he could do that in Heaven.

Jesus is preparing a special place in Heaven for those saved Christians that cling to God’s word and strive to please Him.  In the book of John, we read that there are “many mansions.”  And in Revelation, we read that the New Jerusalem is made of gold with the wall foundations  “decorated with every kind of precious stone.”  The city gates are made of pearls.  Also, there is a crystal-clear river that comes from God’s throne and goes through the city’s center.  And by the river is the tree of life.  Liberty Bible Commentary says, “Satisfying fruit will be there in abundance; the saints will partake of it.”  It also states, “what was lost in Genesis is regained in the Revelation…”

Our God is a tremendously rich king, of course much greater than any earthly kings.  If our king reviews our lives and is pleased, we’ll get to enjoy what Jesus has been preparing for us.  I hope there’s a horse in my special place.  What do you hope is there for you?  Maybe someday God will provide His saints with real cotton candy clouds.

I’m thankful Jesus is coming soon!  Aren’t you?
