There’s a song called Homecoming Day, and often when I listen to it in Church it would move me to tears. It’s really quite a wonderful song. So I would like to talk a little about it. (With some quotations of the song’s lyrics)
Everyone is going to die. Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” Everyone has an end in this life, and it’s important to know where you’re going. For many, the ones who have rejected God and Jesus Christ, staying in their own sins unwilling to repent, it’s the Second Death. Ultimate (final) Separation from God (and therefore all that is Good) and a one-way ticket to Hell.
Galatians 3 :2 “…the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”
But For the twice-born, the Children of God, Those who have Accepted Jesus Christ by faith, it will be our Homecoming Day.
Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
. . .There’s a Promise that will help you to go on, soon it will be Homecoming day. When the Father comes to take us home to stay.
2 Timothy 4:18 NKJV “And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen!”
John 16:33 NKJV “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
I can’t wait for the time when there will be no more tears, no more pain, no more temptations, no more trials and tribulations, No more evil of any kind period.
Homecoming Day! All these earthly Trials are through.
Heaven will be worth it all, soon we will hear the call that tells us this is Homecoming Day.
And Christians will even be able to meet the ones who’ve died before! Friends and Family, even famous people we’ve read about in the Bible or in other history books.
We have friends and loved ones cross the river, no longer here they’re now on Heaven’s shore. But we’re resting in the promise that we meet again, when we hear the call to fly away. We’ll unite with them on Homecoming day!
Homecoming day, when the waiting is over.
Of course in the end, not only those who’ve died (or been taken up). But also Jesus our Savior (and brother) and God our Father with the Holy Spirit being so much more there 🙂
. . .What greater joy to finally see our Father, and hear Him say ‘Welcome home my child!’
Homecoming day, when the waiting is over. Homecoming day, all these earthly trials are through.
Heaven will be worth it all, soon we will hear the call that tells us this is Homecoming day!
Please make sure YOU know what will happen to you when you die, I want to see you on Homecoming day. Joyful, Free of all Burdens, in Peace, In our Heavenly Home!
