I still believe in the majesty of that eternal court!
Leonard Ravenhill and A.W. Tozer are familiar names to regular readers. These two 'super' prophets of the 20th century chatted, what will it be like at the pearly gates?
I still believe in the majesty of that eternal court - with the King of kings, the Lord of lords, and the Judge of judges.
If you were to stand before the Lord at this very moment, would you like your life story read by all the millions in eternity? None of the outcasts of hell will be there. Won't it be wonderful - or will it? Or, do you think you might shrink a bit when you hear how God used David Brainerd, or John Wesley, or some little washer-woman that had a life of intercession?
We need to become a people who are baptized with a loving obedience. We need to be submissive to the total will of God, not concerned by human opinion, and not asking for more to spend upon ourselves.
We need to say:
'Oh God, I want this life of mine to glorify You, so that when I stand in Your awesome presence, as the apostle John says I shall not be ashamed at Your appearing.' (1 John 2:28)
There exists no possibility of any dress rehearsal, nor is there any possibility of repetition. Why? Because man is destined to die once and then face judgment. (Hebrews 9:27)
The Last Word:
Today promises there are no guarantees for tomorrow. Be ready!
