12 Though I have much to write to you, I would rather not use paper and ink. Instead I hope to come to you and talk face to face, so that our joy may be complete. 13 The children of your elect sister greet you.
2 John 12-13
After two years of home isolation during a pandemic, we all understand the value of fellowship in person! The communication of love requires physical contact! When we fellowship and talk in presence, we will feel the true feelings revealed, the joy will be satisfied, and we eat, drink, play, sing, worship, preach the gospel, meet, and live together! It all fills us with joy!
One can imagine God’s joy when He sees our entity come back to Him. How beautiful it is for the Father to see His children gather in fellowship, loving each other, and worshiping and praising God together!
With the physical and time barriers, Apostle John could only send greetings. The great reunion in heaven, we can all meet up face to face, love each other without barriers, and enjoy the joy of contentment with the Father, Son, and Spirit! Not only do we long for the union, but also churches and brothers and sisters all over the world and in all generations long for the great reunion in heaven! Our joy will overflow when we all meet in presence finally!
In The Cloud
1. In the clouds comes the time we meet
Face to face our dear Lord we see.
Parted many years, now at last we meet,
Starts the sweet eternity.
2. Hold my hand to the heav’nly home,
Then the Father gladly we see.
Take a City walk, of the past we talk.
What a sweet eternity!
