"I know where I am going."
Wow! I know where I am going....
And where would that be ...?
He was going to the place:
where 'God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain.' (Rev 21:4)
the place that 'had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine it it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof' (Rev 21:23)
where he, and all who enter, 'shall see His face'.
Surely of all the promises we have concerning Heaven, none is more precious than the fact that He is there. Our Saviour, Christ Jesus, is there in the centre. We shall see Him 'face to face' (1Corinthians13:12).
If death were to coming knocking tonight, could you honestly say (like our friend said), "I know where I am going"? Do you know that you are destined for Heaven. If your faith rests totally and utterly on Christ, then you too can say with joy and with certainty: "I know I am going to Heaven, to be with Christ forever and ever".
A few years ago, I heard a sermon on the words of Revelation 22:17, entitled God's Final Invitation of Mercy - "And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely."
Have a listen, and if you've never come to the feet of the King of kings before, please come and worship Him, bow down before Him, give Him your heart, and make certain that on the day of your death you will be able to say with absolute certainty ...
"I know where I am going. And I long to see my Saviour face to face."
