For the Christians amongst us...

Did you ever realize that all the arrangements for the final journey have already been made?

Read this check-list and give thanks.

Arrangements for first-class accommodation have been made in advance.
"In My Father's house are many rooms ....... I am going there to
prepare a place for you." (John 14:2).

Persons seeking entry will not be permitted past the gates without
having proper papers/credentials and having their names registered
with the ruling Authority.
"Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is
shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the
Lamb's book of life". (Revelation 21:27).

The exact date of departure has not been announced. Travellers are
advised to be prepared to leave at short notice.
"It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by
His own authority." (Acts 1:7).

Your ticket is a written pledge that guarantees your journey. It
should be claimed and its promises kept firmly in hand.
"I tell you the truth, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent
Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over
from death to life." (John 5:24).

Only one declaration is required while going through customs.
"That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in
your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
(Romans 10:9).

All passengers are classified as immigrants, since they are taking up
permanent residence in a new country. The quota is unlimited.
".......... they were longing for a better country - a heavenly one
........ He has prepared a city for them." (Hebrews 11:16).

No luggage whatsoever is necessary.
"For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of
it." (1 Timothy 6:7).

Travelers' going directly by air are advised to watch daily for
indications of imminent departure.
"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up
together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so
we will be with the Lord forever." (1 Thessalonians 4:17).

Injections are not needed, as diseases are unknown at the destination.
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death
or mourning or crying or pain......" (Revelation 21:4).

Supplies of currency may be forwarded ahead to await the passenger's
arrival. Deposit your heart, mind, soul and life.
"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust
do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." (Matthew

A complete and appropriate new wardrobe is provided for each traveler.
"...For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in
a robe of righteousness. ..." (Isaiah 61:10).

Resetting of watches will not be necessary to adjust to the day/night
"The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the
glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.......... for
there will be no night there." (Revelations 21:23,25).

Booking is now open. Apply at once.
"........ now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of
salvation." (2 Corinthians 6:2)

The highlight of the journey is the welcoming reception and coronation
which await the arrival.
"Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the
Lord, the Righteous Judge, will award to me on that day - and not only
to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing." (2 Timothy
