“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will take you to Myself, so that where I am, there you also will be.”John 14:3
This verse comprises one of several beautiful promises given by Jesus to His disciples and everyone who chooses to follow Him. He is coming back again! The Genesis account of creation tells us that God created the heavens and the earth in six days. Jesus said He has gone to prepare a place for us so that where He is, there we can also be. Can you imagine the scene that awaits us in heaven, and Jesus has been working on it for 2000 plus years?
However, as a precursor to His second coming, Jesus will first call His followers, His church, to rise and meet Him in the clouds. An event Christians refer to as the rapture, one that Apostle Paul speaks about in His first letter to the Corinthian church. Paul said it would happen in the twinkling of an eye, and Jesus said no one knows the day or time for when it will occur except His Father. That is why the Lord tells us to be on the alert, for we do not know the day of His return.
Therefore, in the days and weeks ahead, let us always meditate on God’s word and be on the alert for the day of our redemption draws near, for it is closer today than yesterday, and it will be even closer tomorrow than today. Best of all, on that day, we will enter into paradise with Jesus, a place He has prepared just for us!

“God never leaves you nor forsakes you.” I’ve heard that before. “Jesus will leave the 99 to come after you.” I’ve heard that one too. Meanwhile, fear creeps up when life hurls a season of loneliness our way, and poof! Churchy sayings hold as much weight as thin air. Believe it or not, God is cheering us on and inviting us to thrive amidst the loneliness. Yes, it’s weird and scary, but this emptiness is a safe space where you get to hear the God of everything speak the loudest. You’re safe because God is so good at owning goodness amidst our dank, confused, lonely seasons, and because of Him, you aren’t so by yourself.”
