Your Sinless and Perfect Home

Here on earth, sin is the ruin of man the ruin of his immortal soul. It has blighted and blasted the world, and filled it with impurity, misery, and death!

The Christian has here to struggle and wrestle  with sin in his members,  with his depraved heart, with sin in his family,  with sin in his neighbors,  with sin in his business transactions,  with sin in society at large. He feels its evil operations, and laments its corrupting effects.

But in Heaven the Christian shall gain purity without sin! All the remains of sin, and the dregs of corruption are left forever behind!  No condemning conscience is found there.   No unhallowed appetites are found there.   No disordered affections exist there.   No appearance or vestige of evil is found there.   Every child of God is as pure as Christ is pure as perfect as his Father in Heaven is perfect.
Child of mortality, heir of corruption! Look forward to your sinless and perfect home, and learn that to die will be gain indeed!
[William Nicholson]
Revelation 21:27 ... And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
Philippians 1:21 ... For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Philippians 3:21 ... Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
1 John 3:2 ... Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Revelation 21:3-4 ... And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
