Promise Of Future Meeting !!!!!!

Promise Of Future Meeting !!!!!!

I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice. (John 16:22)

Surely He will come a second time, and then, when He sees us and we see Him, there will be rejoicings indeed. Oh, for that joyous return! But this promise is being daily fulfilled in another sense. Our gracious Lord has many “agains” in His dealings with us. He gave us pardon, and He sees us again and repeats the absolving word as fresh sins cause us grief. He has revealed to us our acceptance before God, and when our faith in that blessing grows a little dim, He comes to us again and again and says, “Peace be unto you,” and our hearts are glad.

Beloved, all our past mercies are tokens of future mercies. If Jesus has been with us, He will see us again. Look upon no former favor as a dead and buried thing, to be mourned over; but regard it as a seed sown, which will grow, and push its head up from the dust, and cry, “I will see you again.” Are the times dark because Jesus is not with us as He used to be? Let us pluck up courage; for He will not be long away. His feet are as those of a roe or young hart, and they will soon bring Him to us. Wherefore let us begin to be joyous, since He saith to us even now, “I will see you again.”

    I love Spurgeon. Stern and strictly biblical. But with a passionate love for the Lord. And I love your posts, Levi. Since I am not on Facebook or Twitter, I find myself reading them over again. A double portion (2 Kings 2: 9). Sort of like turkey leftovers after Thanksgiving! ❤

      Lol. You are too kind Anna. Since time is of the essence for me I’ve decided to stop blogging, at least for the time being, because I am too busy. I’m writing now a weekly devotion for our local newspaper as well as a full page gardening article every week. And my missionary work is still very busy. It’s always great to read your needed and professionally written posts. I hope all is well.
