A View From Heaven

“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’”
- Revelation 7:9-10
We have spent five weeks now diving into the book of Revelation (and we still have nine more weeks to go). We have even spent the last couple days talking about a decision to give our lives fully to Christ—how it is never too late, and how there is no plan B apart from Him. But sadly, some still will take the chance and choose to live their life on their own terms.

What if we live until the time of the tribulation? What if we do not die before then? You might ask yourself, “If it isn’t too late, I can still live how I want now and then just give my life to Christ during that period.” Be careful my friend, because life is not guaranteed. Anyone of us could be breathing our final breath anytime now. That is not to make you worried, just grateful and aware of the power of Christ.

And while it will not be too late at that point, if you do make it to the tribulation, those times will not be pleasant. They will be filled with sickness, war, and violence. It will be a time like nothing we have ever seen. And why experience that when you can have a view from heaven?

Many people make the joke about how people pay all this money to go to ball games in the freezing weather and sit way up high where they can barely see, when you could have a great view on a huge flatscreen TV in the warmth of your own home, sitting on a comfy couch, all for free. Makes you think, right? Well, that is how it could be for you during the tribulation.

God wants you to have a comfy seat in heaven. While you can study about the end times, He does not want you to be a part of them. Do not take the chance! Sure up your future with Christ now so your view is from heaven!
