Know God in a Year #258 The Party of Parties

The City of God overflows with music and shouts of triumph, joy, and praise, as Jesus’ entourage gets close. All of heaven is waiting to welcome Jesus and those he’s taking back as first-fruits–those who were resurrected with him.
Commanders, rulers and representatives from unfallen worlds are there to welcome Him home, eager to honor Jesus and celebrate His victory over Satan, evil, and death. Man has been restored! He can come home!
As they approach, the escorting angels shout, “Lift up your heads you gates, you everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in.”
Joyfully the waiting group responds, “Who is this King of Glory?” Not because they don’t know, but because they love hearing it.
“The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle!…” What a thought! Mighty in battle by laying down his power!
As they sweep in through the gates the atmosphere is charged with joy, accompanied by unbelievable music, singing and shouting. A gorgeous crown and robe are brought, but Jesus, disregarding these, approaches the rainbow-encircled throne and his Father to present his gifts from earth–his friends.
Father embraces Son as he says, “Let everyone worship Him,” signifying that their covenant made to redeem man before earth’s creation has finished successfully.
They’ve been celebrating ever since with joyful expressions of “He is worthy!” (When they’re not helping us.)
They never get tired of praising, or whispering to us, “He’s worth it. He’s worth it! You can’t imagine the glory and celebration that awaits you! –the amazing life to come!”
Revelation 4:2-3, 5:6-13,  Ephesians 1:3-10, 17-22, 3:7-20,  1Thessalonians 4:13-17,  Job 38:4-7
