Has the Reader ever watched that very old children’s movie in which a donkey is pulling a cart full of children by means of them lowering a carrot in front of the animal’s face?

.

Yes, as soon as the carrot is lowered in front of the donkey, he starts moving (thus pulling the cart) as if to attain the carrot.

“that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

Well, perhaps this worldly analogy is a bit crude. But when we really think about it, the Christian has a giant carrot lowered in front of his or her view.

.

And just what is that carrot?

.

Simple! Everlasting life! Yes, God is holding a giant carrot in front of each and every child of God, in hopes of inspiring us to keep going in our often difficult Christian pilgrimage.

“…and they shall reign for ever and ever!”

Revelation 22:5

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg

.

Just think about it! God is giving the chance to anybody who desires to live forever, that very gift!

.

Try to imagine! Everlasting life goes on forever and ever. It never ends!

.

One million years? That’s just a starter! Ten million years? Naw! Billions of years? Trillions of years? Naw! That’s still just a starter!

.

The fact is, everlasting life never ends! We will be rejoicing through the ceaseless ages!

THE REVELATION 12 WOMAN AND THE GLORIOUS CROWN ABOVE HER HEAD

.

Well, God uses a much more wonderful and glorious analogy than a mere carrot in front of a donkey!

.

Because, if you will look up, and lift up your heads towards the night-heavens, you just might behold a great constellation of a woman who appears to be grasping for a constellation of a giant crown…“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon (or “above”) her head a crown of twelve stars:” Revelation 12:1 

.

These two constellations,  which appear through the summer months happen to be Ursa Major (the woman) and Corona Borealis (plus a few other stars which appears as a crown). Yes, God is holding out the crown of everlasting life for anyone who desires to obtain that crown!

.

Jeremiah 30:7

.

And so, if the coming days and months become rather difficult for us, let’s not forget what an incredible crown awaits all those who endure to the end!

.

Perhaps you might call it the biggest carrot in the universe. But certainly it is the biggest crown in the universe!

.

And just thinking about what an unimaginable reward that crown will be should keep us going through the coming time of trouble ahead!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

 

“Where there is no vision, the people perish” Proverbs 29:18

.

In the beginning, God placed our first parents in a beautiful garden.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Elakala_Waterfalls_Swirling_Pool_Mossy_Rocks.jpg

But as a result of sin, this world lost much of its beauty. The curse has marred, to a great extent, the pristine condition of nature. In spite of that, God has mercifully left enough beauty in nature for mankind to enjoy.

.

FAMOUS CARTOON

.

But though this world retains much beauty, there are still many, who are under the impression, that God’s redeemed will spend all eternity sitting on a puffy little cloud, strumming a harp. Whoever is responsible for that infamous cartoon of a man with a harp, sitting on a little cloud, was unwittingly doing the Devil’s bidding. Lucifer would love nothing more, than for people to have the discouraging notion, that Heaven is just a puffy little cloud, with nothing going on, day after day, for all eternity. Nothing could be further from the truth!

.

Do we really imagine that the same God who created that incredible garden for our first parents, would then put us through all this sorrow and hardships, only to now stick us in some boring situation, for eternity? Such people don’t know God nearly well enough.

.

Sin and rebellion has marred the original beauty of this present world. But in spite of that, there still remains some of the beauty that this planet originally possessed. But marred as it is, still the beauty and innocent joys of this present world, are just a faint reflection of what awaits all those who persevere on the upward pathway to that Celestial City of God.

.

.

.

.

.

CATCH A VISION OF THAT PROMISED LAND!

.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:1, 2

.

So Signs Of Heaven encourages the reader to begin to get a vision of the New Heaven and New Earth, and begin to get excited about it. When we hear the cry of a new born baby, or the innocent laughter of little children. When we see a little forest creature having fun, or we enjoy a walk along the sand at the ocean, and hear the majestic roar of the crashing waves.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sunset_at_Huntington_Beach.jpg

“Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. ” Psalm 40:5.

.

These, and the many other joys of life were created by the One who has also gone to prepare an even more beautiful place for us to live. He knows our needs, and will provide a place far more wonderful home than this sin-cursed Earth.

.

And when we finally cross that river, and we stand together on the shores of that world to come, we will look in amazement at what He has in store for us there. And then we will know for certain, that “His mercy endures forever”,  because, “God is love”!
