THE SCHOOL OF THE HEREAFTER - CONTD

Devotional Type : Maranatha

Devotion Time : January 13

Topic: The School of the Hereafter – cont : 2    
         
"Thy people also shall be all righteous: They shall inherit the land forever,  The branch of My planting, The work of My hands,  That I may be glorified." Isaiah 60:21.  

Restored to His presence, man will again, as at the beginning, be taught of God: "My people shall know My name: … they shall know in that day that I am He that doth speak: behold, it is I." Isaiah 52:6. "The tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God." Revelation 21:3. 

     "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. … They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters." Revelation 7:14-17.  "Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:" now we know in part; but then shall we know even as also we are known. 1 Corinthians 13:12.  "They shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads." Revelation 22:4.

     There, when the veil that darkens our vision shall be removed, and our eyes shall behold that world of beauty of which we now catch glimpses through the microscope; when we look on the glories of the heavens, now scanned afar through the telescope; when, the blight of sin removed, the whole earth shall appear in "the beauty of the Lord our God," what a field will be open to our study! There the student of science may read the records of creation … may listen to the music of nature's voices and detect no note of wailing or undertone of sorrow. In all created things he may trace one handwriting--in the vast universe behold "God's name writ large,"… .  

     There the Eden life will be lived, the life in garden and field. "They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of My people, and Mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands." Isaiah 65:21, 22.  [Ed 302-3]
