Oh the Rejoicing

Oh the joy, the dancing, the hugging, the celebration, the victory. Oh the awe, weeping for joy, the cheering, singing, hands raised up. Oh the worship, the blowing of trumpets, the laughing for joy. Oh the shouting, the celebration, the gladness, the triumph. Oh the elation, the rapture, the excitement, the intense love for all present, oh the rejoicing…

…when we are united with our King, our Husband, our Lord, our Beloved God and Redeemer. On that day.

The world has the Obama victory. It has the World Series victory. We have Jesus’ victory. We have Him.

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. Gal.6:14

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Cor.15:57

For what is our hope or joy or crown of exultation(rejoicing)? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming? 1Thes.2:19

And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Is.35:10

With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace. Ps.45:15

  1. The “torture” will finally be over. (Let us now endure humbly and faithfully to the end.)

    The banner of our Lord Jesus Christ will be waved.

    It will be the happiest day of our life.

    (After the tears of mourning are wiped away by Him.)

    Rejoice, o overcomers. Oh victory in Christ. Everlasting joy!

  2. I have to confess: I was reading through your openiing paragraph on this post and it wasn’t until I was going over it a second time did I realize you weren’t talking about me reaching my 55th birthday.

    Still a GREAT post! 🙂

    Yes, I truly believe that Heaven will always be so much more than we can ever imagine here with our finite minds. Imagine, for all eternity, being perpetually awestruck in the magnificence, the greatness and beauty of the infinite glory of God and never being able to to see the end of it. It actually hurts my little brain just thinking about it.

  3. haha Paul, happy birthday btw. I was not speaking about “Heaven”… but “that day”… when we are presented to Him, in His Kingdom. I’m thinking this is a different thing. And those closer to San Fran, will hopefully also get the point I was trying to make about worship and joy. God bless you brother.
    love, Loretta
