“Melchizedek blessed Abram with this blessing: ‘Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth’.” Ge. 14:19 NLT
We don’t know a whole lot about what the realm of Heaven looks like. Our own fallen Earth is breathtaking even in its broken state.
God has created such grandeur here as human artists can only emulate.
Here, He shows himself to be a God of intricate detail. He cares about the smallest petal and the sweetest scent.
He shows his creativity in the beautiful fury of the storm-clouds. Mixing our hearts with wonder and fear as the lightning crashes.
He reveals himself in the snow.
in the warmth of a campfire. God made all of these things for us to enjoy here on Earth.
We may not know much about what Heaven looks like. We may have only fleeting glimpses and descriptions of the New Earth and the New Jerusalem that lie ahead for us; But we know the work of the Architect who has made them or shall make them all. We have seen His work with our eyes. I can only imagine the wonder…. But perhaps one glimpse of Jesus will make all the beauty of Heaven pale in comparison….Maybe I don’t long to go to Heaven at all. Maybe what I really want is to see the one who died and rose for me.
