I am going to prepare a place for you.

(John MacDuff, "The Words of Jesus")

"I am going to prepare a place for you.
 When everything is ready, I will come and
 get you, so that you will always be with Me
 where I am." John 14:2-3

What a wondrous thought!

Jesus is now busied in Heaven in His people's
behalf! He can find no abode in all His wide
dominions, befitting as a permanent dwelling
for His ransomed ones.

He says, "I will make a new heavens and
a new earth. I will found a special kingdom.
I will rear eternal mansions expressly for
those I have redeemed with my blood!"

Orphaned pilgrims, dry your tears! Soon the
sighs of a groaning and burdened creation will
be heard no more. Soon He will come again, to
receive those who followed Him in His cross, to
be everlasting partakers with Him in His crown!
