The Glory of Christ

I was reading Isaiah 60 this morning and was filled with so much hope, wonder, amazement, awe and joy at what Heaven will be like.  The chapter is 22 verses long and starts with a bang with a call to action.  After that call to action there is promise after promise about what God has done and will do.  Revelation 21 used to be my favorite chapter about Heaven, but I think this passage is now.

This passage is also a testimony to God’s faithfulness.  I was praying this morning that God would meet me and bring me to place of worship as I read.   As I read this passage my soul was definitely nourished and cared for.

I’ve actually been in a poem writing kick lately and will be posting some new stuff over the course of this week.  Here is a poem that I wrote this morning on this passage.

All the children of God, hope in Christ return.
We live in dark days where sin and wickedness abound,
But when Christ returns His glory will shine,
The everlasting light of His glory will outshine all satan has done
And every knee on earth, under the earth and above the earth
Will bow in awe and wonder at the King of Kings.

Arise all that have been adopted by God,
Look forward with eagerness to Chris return
When His glory will be our light
As we will be made majestic and beautiful
In the city whose gates is Praise and wall are called Salvation.

Oh what a wonderful day when we will get to see the glorified Christ.
His glory is great and greatly to be praised.
The everlasting light of His glory will outshine the moon and stars.
Light has no place for darkness, so He is filled with wrath to sin,
But He is full of mercy and has made undeserving sinners righteous through the cross.

One day those bought by the precious blood of Christ
Will see Him face to face and the joy He has for His children.
Like a father with his children, Christ heart is elated in us.
His heart is exulting and thrilled at those that He redeemed on the cross.
Let us live for this reality as we live for eternity
And pray for the hastening of Christ return.
