One of the most amazing gifts bestowed upon us by God is the Bible. It is a revelation from God for the entire humankind; it guides us in God’s ways, prepares us for God’s work, convicts us of wrong, and corrects us, so that we can be guided in perfection.
We all travel from one place to another, and get overly excited particularly when driven to an unknown place; we get overwhelmed at the miles ahead wondering when we’ll finally get to our destination. So, we may find ourselves asking about the destination before we even arrive there. surprisingly, as we get some positive information, we no longer worry about the mileage. So, we can go in peace.
As Christians, you and I are cognizant about our destination, Heaven. And the Bible plays a very important role in getting us there. As you read Matthew 24 and similar chapters, you clearly see where we are on the “mileage” to heaven. Some signs of the End times have already played out—some in the past, others are currently happening; still others are bound to happen in the near future. And our goal is not be shaken by the terrifying events; it is to always get ready for Christ’s return (our going to heaven is parallel to the second coming of Jesus—He is our driver there, see John 14:1-3).
This is one of the most important aspects of the Bible that I wanted to point out today: as you read your Bible about the future of the Planet Earth, you get it unfolded concerning the coming of Jesus. Thus, you can knowingly prepare for your departure.
Because the Bible is the light on our journey to heaven, we need to study it diligently.
