“The voice of weeping shall be no more heard.” Isaiah 65:19
Heaven, what a pleasant subject for the “Redeemed in the Lord” to contemplate and to place our thoughts. Many sermons have been preached and volumes of books that could fill the Roman Coliseum about the very pleasant subject of Heaven.
Isaiah, speaking for God and talking of Heaven, said:
“And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.” (Isa 65:19)
Of all the wonder of Heaven the most astounding thought of “the voice of weeping shall no more (be) heard,” defines the wonder of God’s Heaven.
Imagine never having a sharp word spoken to you or from you that brings the weeping from a broken relationship. A place where no mother will hold the lifeless body of a child, a place where weeping is never heard from a widow or widower who has lost her husband or his wife.
Think about a place were no child weeps in their bed because they are abused, abandoned or hungry. A place where the poor never weep because of their need, the wealth of this world paving its streets and no weeping for the darkness of sin that has clouded your life.
This world is full of weeping, brokenness and pain. In God’s Heaven, all the damage that sin has inflicted in our lives will be removed and just as God is able to forget our sin and cast it; so shall we do the same as it is said, “As far as the east is from the west.” (Psa 103:12) We will never have the thoughts of failure, the feeling of defeat or the darkness of guilt from our past sin.
In God’s Heaven, we will never be tempted with or desire to sin. The Revelator John said about Heaven:
“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.” (Rev 21:27)
Let this thought dwell deep into your soul. Not one thing that is evil, dark, defiling, not anything that could be construed as evil enters in Heaven. Not one person or entity that is not of God can enter into Heaven. It is by invitation. The list that allows entrance is the names found in the “Lamb’s book of life.”
Are you, my friend, bound for Heaven? Is your name on the list that controls who enters Heaven? If not, let me share this good news with you. Jesus came to the Earth, born as a baby that was both man and God and would become a mediator between you and God.
Jesus lived a life that was free from sin. God’s word states:
“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” (Heb 4:15)
Jesus died, not for His sin, but your sin. The Word of God declares, “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures.” (1 Co 15:3) The death of Jesus, the only perfect human born on this Earth, gave His life so that you may have a place in Heaven reserved for you.
Jesus not only died, but in His death He conquered both sin and death. This truth is found in these words:
“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Co 15:55-57)
In Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection not only was sin’s power broken in the life of Jesus sin’s, but power was also removed from anyone who will call on His name. The scriptures gives hope to you with these words “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Rom 10:13)
Will you call on the name of Jesus and receive forgiveness of your sin? To abide in Heaven with a holy God you must rid yourself of the power of sin. Call on Jesus today and you will be received into the dwelling place of God.
