My son and son-in law eagerly awaited the opening day for the movie, Avengers – Infinity War. Long before its release date, they could be found comparing trailers for the movie trying to get glimpses of scenes and anticipate its debut.
While sitting on my back porch, watching the clouds move across the sky, I pondered Revelation 1:7, and I was captivated anticipating that glorious day!
Behold He is coming with the clouds and every eye will see him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.
As I read further into Revelation, I caught more glimpses of heaven in chapters 4 and 5. Even as watching the moving clouds heightened my anticipation of seeing Jesus come with the clouds, singing worship songs praising the Lamb gave me a preview of the glory that awaits in heaven. My singing was joined with voices from Brazil, Zimbabwe, Korea, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Sierra Leon.
They sang a new song saying, “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals for You were slain and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You have made them a kingdom of priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth….Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing….forever and ever. “
The foretaste just whets my appetite for the premier. Come Lord Jesus Come.
