My Father’s home!

My Father’s home!

(James Smith, “The Better Land”)

“Do not be troubled. There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with Me where I am!” John 14:1-3 

How familiar with Heaven–how well acquainted with that “better land” must Jesus be! He calls it “My Father’s home!” Sweet view of our eternal residence!

Dying is but ‘going home!’ Going home to our Father! Going to our Father’s home!

And shall we fear this? Fear it! Can we do anything other than eagerly desire it? Do we not wish to go home and see our Father? We shall not be strangers there–so many of our Christian friends have gone home before us. And even if some of our loved ones are not there–we could not possibly feel unhappy where JESUS is!

“I am leaving the world,” said Jesus, “and am going to My Father!” Such should be our language in the prospect of death. O that, with child-like simplicity, we could receive into our minds the testimony of God’s Word! O that we could view death and Heaven–just as the Scriptures represent them! Where would our doubts and fears be then? What would become of our reluctance to leave the world then? Then, if we spoke of departed Christian loved ones–we would use similar language to that of Judah in reference to his younger brother Benjamin, “He is this day with our Father!” We would no longer talk of losing friends or relatives. Oh no! we should speak of them as being in our Father’s home, or of being with our Father!

My soul, I charge you in future to look to Heaven, simply as your Father’s home!

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal!” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

  1. Yqw. God bless you too. I am very impressed at how you are still filling your soul with the truth from the word of God. Some people might give up, but you have a text to voice machine. That’s wonderful and truly encouraging.
    Yes I am staying faithful and watching the skies. You should read my blog about the wonderful dream I had, the title is Be Ready. I’d be interested in your thoughts. Sure thankful I found your blog. God bless.

    • Hi, yes faith really does come through hearing for me, loll I use my iPhone to listen to several Bible apps, Audible, Youtube, podcasts and many more apps to learn about theology, apologetics, sermons and much more…If i didn’t have the tech i simply wouldn’t hear or learn 10% of what i can now.

      And of course i use different features on my iMac and iPhone to help hear great, encouraging, inspiring and uplifting post such as yours! 😀

      Would it be possible to post a link to your “Be Ready” post in this comment thread? It will be much easier for me to click through and read it.

      Thanks once again for stopping by and commenting. God bless you.

  2. Yes and amen! We will be going to our Father. Great words. Thank you.

    • Amen! Thanks so much for visiting, reading and leaving an encouraging comment. God bless you. 🙏🏻

      Hope you’re staying safe and faithful during these challenging times? 😀
