Glory Inconceivable and Inexpressible

Such is the splendor, the brightness, the glory, the happiness, and blessedness that are reserved for the saints in Heaven that had I all the tongues of men on earth, and all the excellences of the angels in Heaven yet I would not be able to conceive nor to express that vision of glory to you! That glory is inconceivable and inexpressible!

It is best to be hastening there, that we may feel and enjoy that which we shall never be able to declare! All the troubles, afflictions, and sorrows of this life, in comparison with eternal happiness and blessedness are to be considered as nothing. They are but as the point of a pin compared to the starry heavens!

[Thomas Brooks]

2 Corinthians 4:17 ... For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

Romans 8:18  ...  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 ...  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
