This world holds few guarantees. Here’s One you can depend on.
“Job was taught of God to believe in a living Redeemer; to look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come; he comforted himself with the expectation of these. Job was assured, that this Redeemer of sinners from the yoke of Satan and the condemnation of sin, was his Redeemer, and expected salvation through him; and that he was a living Redeemer, though not yet come in the flesh; and that at the last day he would appear as the Judge of the world, to raise the dead, and complete the redemption of his people. With what pleasure holy Job enlarges upon this! May these faithful sayings be engraved by the Holy Spirit upon our hearts. Job and his friends differed concerning the methods of Providence, but they agreed in the root of the matter, the belief of another world.” -Matthew Henry
“Amidst present toils and trials, dangers and distresses — when wearied, way-worn, and tempted to fret — remember that you will soon be HOME! Think, think, O my soul, of an eternity of enjoyment — when the sufferings of time are ended!” -James Smith, “Rills from the Rock of Ages”, 1860
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness:
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
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.
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.
