No futurist could conceive the things God has prepared for them that love Him. No romanticist could adequately describe the love story of the ages, played out by the divine cast of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. No historian could discover a more expansive and majestic story than the one told by the Word Himself, Who Himself and within Himself and without need of any other entity “fills all in all.”
To consider that the pure, holy and singular God of creation would invite mere man into the royal courts of His presence, let alone invite His creation to approach His glorious throne begs the wildest, most colorful imagination among us. And such imagination falls hopelessly short of comprehending or of conveying the depth of love, the degree of grace involved in the invitation to stand, to rest, to walk by His side.
He has called us to His throne but more; He has called us to rule with His own Son. He makes us to be His children, “and if children, then heirs – heirs with God and joint-heirs with Christ,” for Scripture articulates the promise, “If we endure, We shall also reign with Him.”
