Waiting with Great Anticipation

I am very eager to see what happens in the end times. Many people will look at the whole idea of Christ return with fear, but this is simply because the do not know the truth about what is coming.

Christ word to us in John 14:3 states “After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me so that you may be where I am.”

“It was customary for travelers in those old days to send some of their party on in advance, to find lodging and make arrangements for them in some great city. Many a time one or other of the disciples had been ‘sent before His face into every place where He Himself should come.’ On that very morning two of them had gone in, at His bidding, from Bethany to make ready the table at which they were sitting. Christ here takes that office upon Himself.” (Taken from Expositions of Holy Scripture (Alexander MacLaren))

He told us that he took this office upon Himself in the verse before this. We find him saying “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2

He is preparing a great place for us to dwell, and if he is doing this he will surely come again and have us join him there as well.

Many times, when travelling I look forward to my destination, but even more so I look forward to going home and be relaxed again.

He we are waiting on this earth, but it is only temporary in the long run of eternity. We have a great home waiting for us in heaven, and he promised his will return for us.

I, for one, am looking forward to that day that we will go home to be with him. How about you?
