Our Eternal Glory

July 11, 2011

Have you considered the eternal weight of glory promised to the elect of God lately?  Wilhelmus a’Brakel writes of eternal glory in a way that should cause us to long and labor for it with renewed fervor:

Upon completion of the judgment and the casting of the ungodly into hell, the Lord Jesus will usher the elect into eternal glory (Ps 73:24), the Father‟s house in which there are many mansions (John 14:2), the house not made with hands which is eternal in the heavens (2 Cor 5:1), the third heaven, paradise (2 Cor 12:2,4), the city which has foundations and whose builder and maker is God (Heb 11:10), the joy of the Lord (Matt 25:21), and the heavenly kingdom (2 Tim 4:18). He will give them eternal life (John 10:28), place the crown of righteousness upon their head (2 Tim 4:8), grant them the crown of life (James 1:12), and make them partakers of “an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven” (1 Pet 1:4). Furthermore, they will enjoy that which the Lord Jesus has merited and petitioned for them: “Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me” (John 17:24).
