“I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.”
John 14:3 (ESV)
JESUS IS IN HEAVEN
A ninety-five year old woman at the nursing home received a visit from one of her fellow church members. “How are you feeling?” the visitor asked. “Oh,” said the lady, “I’m just worried sick!” “What are you worried about, dear?” her friend asked. “You look like you’re in good health. They are taking care of you, aren’t they?” “Yes, they are taking very good care of me.” “Well, what are you worried about?” her friend asked again. The lady leaned back in her rocking chair and slowly explained her major worry. “Every close friend I ever had has already died and gone on to heaven. I’m afraid they’re all wondering where I went!”
A horse is one of the few animals that have a 350 degree field of vision. A horse does have two blind spots, one directly in front of their face and the other directly behind them. When a horse is approached from the front he will raise his head to focus. Likewise, when a horse is approached from the rear, he is easily startled and will sometimes kick the object behind him. The disciples were having a hard time seeing what was ahead of them and how it was better for Jesus to leave them. But Jesus assured them that the most important thing they need to know was the He was coming back for them and was going to bring them with Him to heaven.
Jesus is already in heaven but He has promised to come back and get all of us who have placed a saving faith in what He did for us. Have you placed a saving faith in Jesus? If not do it today. Is there anyone already in heaven that you are looking forward to seeing? Thank God for the promise of heavenly reunions with them.
