Nowhere in the Bible are we given details of the life in the eternal kingdom of God. Occasionally the curtain is drawn back to give a slight glimpse of that life, of which our present experience with Him is only a “foretaste of glory divine.”
What can the Christian expect in, “LIFE IN THE ETERNAL CITY?”
A. A LIFE OF FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM!
1 Corinthians 12:13, “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.”
1 John 3:2, “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”
John 14:3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.”
Revelation 22:4, “And they shall see His face.”
B. A LIFE OF REST!
Revelation 14:13, “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed [are] the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.”
C. A LIFE FULL OF KNOWLEDGE!
1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
