“Everlasting Rest!”

“Beloved, soon, O how soon! All that now loads the heart with care, and wrings it with sorrow–all that dims the eye with tears, and renders the day anxious and the night sleepless–will be as though it had never been!”

“Emerging from the entanglement, the dreariness, the solitude, the loneliness, and the temptations of the wilderness–you shall enter upon your everlasting rest, your unfading inheritance, where there is no sorrow, no sin, no sunset, no midnight darkness! But all is one perfect, cloudless, eternal day–for Jesus is the joy, the light, and the glory thereof!”

“And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.”  ~ Revelation 22:3-5
