And like Him we will be;
We'll praise Him and we'll serve Him
For all eternity! —Fitzhugh

What a GREAT message today, I even changed my tagline..
Have a good day I'm running out the door....Thread looks beautiful Billie!

What Will We Do In Heaven?

Read: Revelation 22:1-5

His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. —Revelation 22:3-4

Bible In One Year: Revelation 16-18


I'm sometimes asked what we'll do in heaven. Will we sit on clouds and strum celestial harps? Will we flit about on gossamer wings? In his vision, John the apostle saw three future heavenly activities.

The first one is serving (Revelation 22:3). Perhaps we'll explore an unknown corner of the universe, or, as C. S. Lewis suggests, govern a distant star. Whatever that service may entail, there will be no sense of inadequacy, no weakness, no weariness. In heaven we'll have minds and bodies equal to the task to which we're assigned.

The second activity is seeing: We "shall see His face" (v.4). "Now we see in a mirror, dimly" (1 Corinthians 13:12), but in heaven we shall see our Savior face to face, and we "shall be like Him" (1 John 3:2). This is what Revelation 22:4 means when it says, "His name shall be on their foreheads." The name of God represents His perfect character, so to bear His name means to be like Him. In heaven we will never again struggle with sin but will reflect the beauty of His holiness forever.

Finally, there is reigning. We shall serve our King by ruling and reigning with Him "forever and ever" (v.5).

What will we do in heaven? We'll serve God, see our Savior, and reign with Him forever. We'll be busy! —David Roper

In heaven we'll see our Savior
And like Him we will be;
We'll praise Him and we'll serve Him
For all eternity! —Fitzhugh

Those who love and serve God on earth will feel at home in heaven.

My reverend says that words like "serve" -- when you go back to the original language, they are more celebratory, along the lines of "praise" and "worship." He says that we will feel a wonderful joy of knowing the Truth and of praising our Savior, and that it is beyond our knowledge and means to understand the nature of the experience exactly.

Oh, Billie. It's so nice to have this post everyday to linger through. I come back several times every day to see all the new little funnies/pretties. One day I'll slow down long enough to learn how to do this. I'm still playing catchup from the time I was out for back surgery this year. You all have a very Happy New Year.

My year end statistics here at FR are summarized on the top of the manage profile page. FR tells me: "You've posted a total of 40 threads and 9,651 replies."

So says the Free Republic statistics. Over half of the threads have been Freeper's Finest threads.

A good piece of work. Here's to reply number 9,652. I can stop any time. Really.

Good morning! The Hall of Fame threads are good bookmarks, and each new one can replace the old one, because it's all there. :) For kicks, you should go back to the early threads and see how we've changed. :)

Hope your back surgery was a complete success and you're doing great now.

I'll check out The Hall of Fame threads. My back surgery is progressing as it should. I am back at work and feeling well, thank you. The biggest disappointment about this is that I couldn't go home for Christmas. Couldn't sit in a car for 8 - 10 hours and couldn't handle luggage at the airport. But that's OK. There is always next year. lol

Hi Billie. Stopping in for a quick hello. My last working day in 2003 so I am attempting to make it a productive one!

I just love the Hall of Fame threads...it's fun when there is time to sit back with a good cup of coffee and "graze" through them all.

Have a great day sistahs and Finest friends!

I'm sorry, Dave. :( Of course, all the threads can be checked back and forth from one day to the next, so hopefully anyone would be able to find that one. (And it was such a good thread!) How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Do you cut back in the winter season on flying?

Hi Kathy. Most of the people we fly get quite inactive near the holidays. Also, we are a bit more subject to weather cancellation.

Here's a cool pic I found on Powerline.
