God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.
– Jeremy Taylor
is a long time
and there is no one
I’d rather spend forever with
my beautiful God
will be Yours
will be ours
And I long for the eternity
that my mind can’t fathom
even as I walk
And then I realize
is part of always
Time is swallowed up
All is present
And even as I wrestle
with the dust
I will still seek to praise You
And I will choose to cherish You
As I look up with,
“Come, Lord Jesus, come.”
– Susie Stewart
With a loud command and with the shout of the chief angel and a blast of God’s trumpet, the Lord will return from heaven. Then those who had faith in Christ before they died will be raised to life. Next, all of us who are still alive will be taken up into the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the sky. From that time on we will all be with the Lord forever.
– 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 (CEV)
For the Present is the point at which time touches eternity.
– C.S. Lewis
I will be there to greet you personally and welcome you home, where we will be together.
– John 14:3 (VOICE)
If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy., the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
– C.S. Lewis
When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with Me where I am.
– John 14:3 (NLT)
I looked again. I saw a huge crowd, too huge to count. Everyone was there—all nations and tribes, all races and languages. And they were standing, dressed in white robes and waving palm branches, standing before the Throne and the Lamb and heartily singing:
Salvation to our God on His Throne!
Salvation to the Lamb!
All who were standing around the Throne—Angels, Elders, Animals—fell on their faces before the Throne and worshiped God, singing:
The blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving,
The honor and power and strength,
To our God forever and ever and ever!
– Revelation 7:9-12 (MSG)
