The Best is yet to come!
Here is a couple of wonderful things that will happen to believers when the final trump will sound!

2. I am looking for the upper taker and not the undertaker.
3. In 1987 The belief that Jesus Christ will return to earth someday was held by 62 percent of all Americans. I am sorry to say it is less today. Many mock His return.

A. We shall be like Jesus. Our life and new body will be like His resurrected body.
III. What is His body like?
A. After He rose He ate with His disciples, He passed through locked doors etc. Read the Gospels.
1. Colossians 2:9-10 (KJV) 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
2. In the next verse read this 10: And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
a. We are complete in Him.
b. Our body will be just like His resurrected body.
IV. When we see Jesus, we see the Father.
John 14:9 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, .....he that hath seen me hath seen the Father.........
Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
What a Day That Will
There is coming a day,
When no heart aches shall come,
No more clouds in the sky,
No more tears to dim the eye,
All is peace forever more,
On that happy golden shore,
What a day, glorious day that will be. .
There’ll be no sorrow there,
No more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain,
No more parting over there;
And forever I will be,
With the One who died for me,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be
