WHAT IS IT LIKE? GOD KNOWS

The earnest of our inheritance (*)

Is the pledge of the same!

The promise that we will receive

For it is pledged in Jesus’ name!

.

.

The inheritance that we hold dear,

We value above this life,

It is the promised life beyond the veil,

This veil of tears and strife.

.

.

Sure, there is beyond, within, the stars

Real life that will never end!

Heaven, the heavens, make no mistake

Real!  I do not need to defend!

.

.

It is promised in God’s Word to all

Who will trust Him and obey!

Once you have entered, become God’s child,

There is no other way!

.

.

We look alive when we come alive in

New life that He bestows!

A realization that we receive

Knowledge that grows and grows!

.

.

Revealing new truths as we receive

What He has already taught.

We grow in grace and the wisdom that

He, with His life, has brought!

.

.

He went “to prepare a place for” us

As real as ever we will know!

More real than the life we live on earth

Or lived that He will show.

.

.

The life we now live is punishment

Compared to New Life once arrived.

Truly alive when in heaven’s shore

Forever!  By Jesus’ side!

.
