Why are some saved Christians not looking forward to being in Heaven and seeing Jesus? The Bible says,” For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” (II Corinthians 5:10 ). “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” ( Daniel 12:2&3). Now we know from the scriptures that from the time, of the Rapture, until Jesus takes over the world to rule it for 1,000 years that there will only be a time period of 75 days. See our class on Daniel Chapter 12. How could he possibly have time to see and judge all the saved Christians? There must be Billions. Perhaps the ones who have already gone on to Heaven have already appeared before Jesus Christ, and that would only leave the millions or billions going up in the Rapture, but there still wouldn’t be enough time to see everyone individually during those 75 days. Right? Remember we’ve got to have the Marriage Supper of the Lamb and the six Vials of God’s Wrath poured out upon the earth, and the Seventh Vial which is the Battle of Armageddon during this 75 day time.Well, with God nothing shall be impossible, and remember in the spirit and for the saved, time shall be no more. Maybe it will happen somehow in the spirit where we are not bound by time. Or maybe we will all appear before Jesus and he will pass out the crowns and rewards all during the Marriage supper at a mass gathering, or maybe for some it will happen during the Millennium. I kind of think that this is the way it will be.What do you think? Well it’s interesting to think about. Isn’t it? It makes you want to get right with God and serve the Lord, and win souls, and do like Jesus said; “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:”(Matthew 6:19,20). Remember Salvation is a free gift for the asking, but your Heavenly rewards, you have to work for. There is no greater reward than seeing Jesus and hearing him say to you, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: enter thou into the JOY of thy Lord.” (Matthew 25:21), and also seeing the souls that you personally won or helped win to Jesus, in heaven forever.
Say this prayer to be saved:Jesus, I want to know you and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
