Edges of His Ways; November 3

Now dear brothers and sisters, let us clarify some things about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and how we will be gathered together to meet Him. 2 Thessalonians 2:1

Our gathering together unto Him.                2 Thess. 2:1

These words have been a continual comfort to me of late. We may be separated now,we may see little of some whom we want to see often. There are many partings in life; never once are we promised the joy of long continuance together here, but "our gathering together unto Him" is a certain joy. Every day as it passes brings us nearer that day when we shall gather together unto Him. If it can be such joy to be together here (and I at least have drunk deep of that joy), what will it be to be gathered There?

Ray and I had the privilege of attending the funeral of a man who devoted his life to bringing people to Salvation in Jesus Christ. I have been to a handful of funerals of men whose life was a celebration of The Joy of the Lord rather then the heart break of loss. My own father in law, Ray Hagerty Sr had that kind of funeral. So did Fred Dibble. Pastor Ed Perry was celebrated too. The lives he affected, and I am one of them, amaze me. Our King Y'shua-Jesus is coming soon, and we will be gathered together with them in Glory.

Make sure you are there!
