If I would have sat home this summer and let our fear gripping society overwhelm me with strangling fear, I would have never had the occasion to craft this melody and perform it rejoicing in the Lord! And certainly, no memories but only the fear of man would have haunted me!
May the Lord grant each one of you watching this video delight to achieve new heights in Him!
Going to the Son Video
There are several possible scenarios to enjoying this video and maybe more! I’ll cover just two here.
- Those dying and immediately facing the Lord and walking on the boardwalk path, “Going to the Son” to meet the Lord for the first time, 2 Corinthians 5 8 or
- Those nations that are born again coming to Jerusalem to meet the Lord and give their hearts to the Lord, psalm 87. Those nations that are at war with Israel today.
- And finally for those that just want to take a stroll away from the noise that this world has to offer and enjoy God’s nature!
Covering the First Scenario
I started wondering what if will be like in our first moments in the new heavenly life with Jesus? Yes there is scripture to state angles will there to greet you in your entrance into eternity upon dying. So when will we meet Jesus? Yes in the millennial period (covered elsewhere on my site), Jesus will abide in Jerusalem and many would would meet Him there. And certainly at the Rapture too, (covered elsewhere on my site)! The judgement seat of Christ is certainly a time to meet Jesus too. And yes death of this body.
Death of the Body
2 Corinthians 5 8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
Angles Greeting us
Hebrews 1 14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?
Luke 16 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried.
But how will it be, and when do we get our assigned house to live in? Do we wait in line? Do we get an assigned ticket? Will we get a lessor house if it is determined we did not live up to our faith fully in Christ?
John 14: 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
Judgment Seat of Christ – Not the Great White Throne
2 Corinthians 5 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.
Romans 14 10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Covering the Second Scenario
See psalm 87. Those born spiritually with a change of heart. This spiritual rebirth of nations has never happened yet and will happen in the 1000 literal millennial period occurring after the seven year tribulation period!
4 “I will make mention of Egypt and Babylon to those who know Me;
Behold, O Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia:
‘This one was born there.’ ”
5 And of Zion it will be said,
“This one and that one were born in her;
And the Most High Himself shall establish her.”
6 The Lord will record,
When He registers the peoples:
“This one was born there.” Selah
Who did Jesus claim to be?
“JESUS SAID TO THEM, ‘TRULY, TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM.’
So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.” – John 8:58-59
AND HE SAID, “SAY THIS TO THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL: ‘I AM HAS SENT ME TO YOU.’” – EXODUS 3:13-14
“It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.” – John 10:33
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.” – John 1:1-3
“He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.” – John 1:10
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities —all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” – Colossians 1:15-17
