Christian Fellowship 1997-01-27 - Heaven

Today I would like to simply quote some people and their thoughts on heaven. I hope that in reading this you will be encouraged in your journey there.

"… your life should be wholly spent as a journey towards it." -Jonathan Edwards

"Some have asked whether we shall know one another in heaven? Surely, our knowledge will not be diminished, but increased. The judgement of Luther and Anselm, and many other divines is, that we shall know one another; yea the saints of all ages, whose faces we never saw; and, when we shall see the saints in glory without their infirmities of pride and passion, it will be a glorious sight." Thomas Watson

"believers will swim for ever in an ocean of joy." Thomas Boston

"Eternal life does not begin with death, it begins with faith." Samuel Shoemaker

"All the places in heaven and hell are reserved." Anon.

"In heaven they are free from want; they can want nothing there unless it be want itself. They may find the want of evil, but never feel the evil of want." Eward Willan

"Where the unveiled glories of the Deity shall beat full upon us, and we for ever sun ourselves in the smiles of God." Ezekiel Hopkins

"Whenever thou meetest a Christian, he is going to heaven." William Gurnall

Even the tired horse, when he comes near home, mends his pace: be good always, without weariness, but best at last; that the nearer thou comest to the end of thy days, the nearer thou mayest be to the end of thy hopes, the salvation of thy soul." Thomas Adams

"All our thought and design should be to press forward till we arrive." Jonathan Edwards

"Heaven will be a world of sanctified excitement." Maurice Roberts

All those cited above are dead (long dead) with the exception of Maurice Roberts and I commend his book, "The Thought of God" to you all. He is a pastor in England.

See you in glory,
