Soon and very soon

Revelation 21:1-7

When I think of God’s kingdom coming in its fullness, I am reminded of the gospel hymn Soon and Very Soon. The opening stanza expresses an undeniable joy. One day, we will see our King Jesus.

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, we’re going to see the King!

Imagine seeing the King of Glory as the New Jerusalem descends from heaven. The trials and temptations of earthly life give way to the peace of Christ and the joy of salvation. The old fades away and God’s promise of eternal life becomes the present reality for all who know Christ as Lord and Savior.

The vision afforded John the seer is one of wholeness, restoration of a fallen world and reconciliation of a sinful humanity. No longer is there sickness; no longer is there suffering among God’s beloved children. With the day and hour known only by the Father, the new city of God descends from heaven, adorned as a bride awaiting her groom. The assurance is given; the one who conquers will have this heritage (Revelation 21:7)

Hallelujah, hallelujah, we’re going to see the King!

Prayer: O Lord our God, your mercy endures forever. Hallelujah! Amen.
