In my mind, I can still hear the old saints who’ve gone on to their reward singing,”When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be. When we all see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory.“
Oh yes that will be a great day, yet that day will only be the beginning. We’ll be with the Lord forever and we’ll be doing things. Oh there will be time to have fellowship with loved ones and friends, we’ll meet new people and long ago relations, but we’ll also have other things to do. The Bible says that we’ll rule and reign with Christ back on this earth at some point. And training will be necessary.
God will use the talents and experience, which we have, but so much more will be required, and therefore we’ll be taught just like the twelve disciples were taught by Jesus. Like the saying says, “ If you enjoy what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” In Heaven and beyond we’ll love what we do as we do it with Him. With Them! The Bible tells us:
“Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:6)
“And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.” (Revelation 21:10-11)
“Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3-4)
