Future Plans I Have For Travel
Nearing my 80th birthday, my future plans for travel are very extensive. I
plan to travel light. No baggage checking or "carry on" luggage. I
understand I shall be issued a suitable uniform when I arrive (Rev. 3:5).
The heavenly travel bureau shall take care of all tickets and boarding
passes. I shall not need a credit card as I will be traveling on a free pass
courtesy of my wonderful benevolent Savior, Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
I need not worry about motel reservations because I am going home. True, I
have never seen my heavenly mansion, but since it is custom made by the
great Creator I am sure I shall be delighted and completely content (John
I am not told of its beauty except the brochure states, "Eye has not seen,
nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man what God has
prepared for those who love Him" (I Cor 2:9). On occasion I have had a
glimpse and experienced its beauty (I Cor. 2:10). God has revealed it to us
by His Spirit.
I wonder if it might not be like the Garden of Eden in days of old, and
perhaps the angelic choir that sang at the birth of Jesus shall be in
concert (Luke 2:8-14).
I think of the exclusive neighborhood and the neighbors - a people chosen by
God the Landlord, and prepared for eternity by the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:4).
They shall be carefully screened for their righteousness and holiness before
being accepted (II Cor. 5:10).
The binding lease is for eternity (John 17:3).
I'll see you at the banquet (Rev 19:9)!
