Over the centuries, millions of people in the world crossed the Indian Ocean to see the magnificent and matchless beauty of the Taj Mahal. The tomb of love. 'It is a drop of tear in the cheek of time.' The man made tomb for love . . .
However, many millions in the world do not yet know that there is a magnificent and majestic place far more beautiful than Taj Mahal. A place so beautiful that even if you behold it for a billion ages, you will still want to keep looking at it with more and more excitement, without taking your eyes off of it, even for a second. It is Zion, the perfection of beauty!
Why is Zion so beautiful? Because our blessed triune God Who dwells there is so beautiful. The city is so beautiful. The city’s wall is made of jasper and the city is pure gold, like transparent glass. The foundations of the city’s wall are decorated with every kind of precious stone. Even though the city is built with precious stones and gold, Zion will be a hell, if Jesus is not there! Hell may become heaven if Jesus is there! The beauty of heaven is not the beauty of Gold or precious stones but, the beauty of Jesus Christ!
It is the presence of Jesus is make heaven beautiful . . .
Some time ago a man wanted to take my Bible home to get a few things out of it; and when it came back I found this note in it:
The light of heaven is the face of Jesus
The joy of heaven is the presence of Jesus
The melody of heaven is the name of Jesus
The harmony of heaven is the praise of Jesus
The theme of heaven is the work of Jesus
The employment of heaven is the service of Jesus
The duration of heaven is the eternity of Jesus
The fullness of heaven is Jesus Himself.
D.L. Moody (1837-99)
For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2
But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather
