The Greatest Day of our Lives!

“In the future there is going to be a gathering together of the believers (I Thessalonians 4:14-18), when Christ comes back in the clouds above and gathers us up into the heavenlies to be with God. (This is going to be without a doubt, the greatest day of our lives!) Spiritually today we are already risen (by the power and glory of God) to a new life in Christ (Romans 6:9-13). Romans 15:7 reads wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God because having fellowship with another believer is the next best thing this side of the actual gathering together into the heavenlies. Being with another likeminded believer (or believers), having the common bond of the Scriptures, is to experience (at least in part) the greatness of the glory of God as a genuine foretaste of how glorious our heavenly gathering will be. Hebrews 10:25 encourages the assembling of believers together. Obviously this is not a command to gather at every spare moment of every day; however, when we do fellowship with another believer, being likeminded on the Word, we will become spiritually linked with others who are going to live throughout eternity with us in the glory of God.  We are to treat other believers with the same honor and respect that God in Christ has honored us with, according to the guiding instructions recorded in the Epistles.” ~LMJ~
