God gives His people a taste of Heaven–that they may not faint.
And He gives them but a taste . . .
that they may be encouraged in their difficult journey,
long to be at Home,
sit loose from things below,
that Heaven may be sweeter to them at last!
“No eye has seen,
ear has heard, and
no mind has imagined–
what God has prepared for those who love Him!” 1 Corinthians 2:9

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes–and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever!” Revelation 21:4
This is but a glimpse of the glorious state upon which all the people of God will hereafter enter! There will not only be the absence of all evil–there will be the eternal enjoyment of all good. There will be perpetual vigor, perfect purity, happy service, joyous praise, eternal friendship, holy communion, and unmingled and everlasting bliss!
Suffering Christian, a few more pangs–and your last moment of anguish will be past!
Bereaved one, in Heaven you will never wear the garments of sadness–you will never lose a friend!
Sorrowing one, you will soon heave your last sigh, and have all tears wiped from your eyes!
Weary one, your journey is almost ended. Soon you will cross the threshold of your Father’s house, find yourself at home, and enter upon the enjoyment of your everlasting rest!
“A few more storms shall beat
On this wild rocky shore,
Then we shall be where tempests cease,
And surges swell no more.
“A few more struggles here,
And a few more partings o’er,
A few more toils, a few more tears,
And we shall weep no more!”
