Could You Be?

Would you call your beloved departed believers back to earth again?  Would you wish them back, back from the presence of the Lamb?   

Back from the sweets of glory to the bitterness of time?  Back from those rivers of pure pleasure which flow at God's right hand to the muddied streams in this valley of sorrow?

After they have reached the haven of rest, would you recall them to struggle again with the storms of life?  Could you be so selfish and so cruel? 

[G. Whyte]


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.

Psalm 36:8 … They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

Psalm 16:11 … Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
