In a world obsessed with constant images glorifying a glamorous, gratifying, and glitzy pride of life, we are to shun this faux sense of life in this world because God will make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery of life, which is hidden for us, the hope of glory since the beginning of time when Jesus returns at the end of the world (Isaiah 64:4) (Colossians 1:27).
We are to desire to live, not just for today, but beyond the Last Day. Desire this and we will live every day in the Kingdom of God, because we will be led by the Spirit of God and not by the desires, deceitfulness of riches, and deception of the pleasures of a fake sense of life in this world on this earth. To desire to live forever would mean to finally be going home to Paradise (Psalm 46:4, 87:3)!
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:27-30).
“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
