Cell Phone vs. The Bible by Troy Sanderlin
Wonder what would happen if we treated our BIBLE like we treat our CELL PHONE? We CARRY it everywhere we go. We flip it OPEN throughout the day. We run back home to get it if we FORGET it. We RECEIVE messages from the text and get DIRECTIONS when needed. We COULDN’T live WITHOUT it. We GIVE it to our KIDS as gifts. We use it in emergencies. One more thing: its NEVER disconnected: JESUS paid the bill for our lifetime.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ end Cell Phone & Pick Up your Bible

IMAGINE THIS: Surely we all have heard the gospel song “I Can Only Imagine,” one many of us consider a favorite. Ah, but we have no need to imagine, for God has described in His perfect Word all that we thought we could only imagine. At night before drifting to sleep– see, hear, feel, taste and smell our new planet— COMING SOON! You will fall asleep relaxed every night by envisioning God’s reward, in addition to eternal life, for our obedience in righteousness– as He has depicted this other prize:

—— Father’s heavenly mansions are magnificent and we so enjoyed our temporary stay while there and we were healing; yet, our thousand years in heaven had come and gone so quickly, the construction of New Jerusalem completed– just in time for our journey back to earth. We did not know how it possible, but we were just as excited about our return as we had been when we left with Christ. The time had come for our planet’s thorough cleansing, a time to forget Satan’s pain and terrors once inflicted on us, time for the wicked’s second death and earth’s restoration. What was there not to be excited about?
—— In an instant, Jesus and we were camped in the old Holy City, ruins that resembled little of what it once had been. Back when we left earth, God had sent angels to clear the planet of man’s wicked inventions and all signs of apostasy. Quickly, Christ performed the second resurrection; then we waited patiently for Lucifer and his deceived to attempt a war between good and evil that would never be. Even those three months passed quickly, ending in fire surging from heaven to sear across the old Valley of Decision where Lucifer, his demons and the wicked instantly became ashes we walk upon today.
—— It was then our King of kings and Lord of lords rose in majesty and declared with a wide sweep of His arm, “See! I have made all things new.” The change was instant and we called Him ‘Ishi,’ for He is our husband as the redeemed betrothed to Him. There were no more evil and wicked devices, no more death and graves. On this day, three months after we had returned, iniquity finally was purged from earth by God’s purifying fire.
——Ishi declared, “Behold! I have made the earth and heavens pure like in the beginning. Earth once again is like ancient Eden, for the Father’s Words are True and Faithful and never expired without fulfillment. That which I have promised, I do. Thus, IT IS DONE! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, the first and the last. I AM HE who numbered the generations from the beginning of creation and did all that I said I would do. There is no god other than me! Look! I have created new heavens and a new earth and the former shall not be remembered nor come into mind ever again.”
—— We were thrilled to never again recall the pain and terrors of our old classroom as Ishi continued, “Be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create. For look, I create Jerusalem rejoicing and her people a joy! I delight in Jerusalem and take pleasure in my people.” We looked up to see the brightness of New Jerusalem descending from heaven to settle around us upon the restored great Mount Zion. The glittering City was adorned like a bride for her husband, brilliant light shining in and all about it.
—— “The voice of weeping and crying shall never be heard in her nor shall anyone be sick or suffer pain, for I shall dwell in her midst. There are neither infants nor elderly, neither male nor female for none shall marry because I am the husband Ishi. My people shall never again imagine evil nor walk in wicked ways, cause harm or destroy anything.” Ishi selected pastors to teach us His knowledge and understanding, then established kings and lords to govern earth’s twelve new nations.
—— At once, great voices shouted from heaven, “The kingdoms of this newly restored earth are the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ and He shall reign forever and ever. He is called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, the everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace!”
—— “Behold, the tabernacle of God is now among earth’s inhabitants and He dwells with the people and they are His sons and daughters! Ishi Himself is with them and is their God and all the former things are gone forever; and Jerusalem shall be called Hephzibah and Sought Out, a city of truth, and Israel shall be called Beulah.”
—— The Holy City is huge, more than the eye can see of its 2.250-million square miles, seeming to go on forever by its four great walls 1500 miles long, 264-feet high of 12-stones 22-feet tall, each like a rainbow of different clear precious stones, an Apostle’s name inscribed upon each: first green jasper, topped by sky-blue sapphire followed by bluish sardonyx, then cornelian red sardius, golden chrysolithe, sea-green beryl, pale green topaz, pale greenish-yellow chrysopras, deep violent hyacincth (jacinth), and brilliant purple amethyst. It was like what ancient fantasies painted as a crystal palace.
—— Its beauty surpasses anything we had ever seen; the City’s foundations of sapphires, windows of agates and twelve gates of pearls, each one bearing the name of the twelve noble tribes, and all the borders are of gold, transparent as glass, with studs of silver. Her streets are pure clear gold, and there is no temple therein; for all sacrifices, offerings and mediatorial work are no more: the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple.
—— There is no sun or moon or night in the City, for the glory of Ishi and the Lamb therein are like a dazzling light glowing through precious, clear-as-crystal green jasper. In the rest of the world moonlight glows like the sun and the sun lights as bright as seven suns, yet we do not feel heat or scorching of our skin; neither man nor living creature tires, loving the work of their hands and new bodies.
—— We watched Ishi as He took the seat of king David’s throne and, from it, living waters pure as crystal began to flow and form two rivers divided by the golden street, in the middle of which sits the Tree of Life bearing twelve types of fruit each 30-days. Its great roots extend out to each river, symbolizing the unity of both Jew and Gentiles under One True God and speaking one true language. Out of the Holy City the rivers gently flow to all of earth’s dry oceans and rivers, where no boat or ship shall ever again sail, and ponds and wells and reservoirs beneath.
—— We had seen the Father’s face when we arrived in heaven, for His name is in our minds and hearts; and now we shall see His face forever. We realized how incredibly blessed we are to walk in the name of our Lord, our God forever and ever; blessed that every living creature lives in harmony, blessed to walk in new earth’s wilderness and cities that lift up their voices in song. Why, even the rocks sing a new, never ending song of life and praise for our God.
—— The Lord then caused Israel to blossom and bud then fill the face of the world with green pastures, delectable fruits and calm waters where storms never again rage. “Sing unto the Lord a new song and praise Him from the ends of the new earth, all you that go down to the sea and all that is in the sea and all the islands and their inhabitants. Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it!” Every knee bowed to Ishi, for the redeemed knew their righteousness and strength had come from Him: we had it not of ourselves.
—— We gazed upon the Holy City, seeing it like a walled garden, a sealed fountain of Truth and living waters, a place where pollution will never again enter. How fair and pleasant are her delights, both new and old. Her flora is an orchard of pomegranates and apples and other delicious fruits along with nut and palm trees and all the chief spices of camphire, spikenard and saffron. There are calamus and cinnamon together with trees of myrrh, frankincense and aloes.

——North and south winds began to whisper across the sweet spices and they wafted out into the world. We took deep breaths, reveling in cinnamon’s spicy scent, the air ever fresh and sweet as we joined our Lord to eat His fruits with honey and honeycombs. He told us to drink freely of His pomegranate wine and milk. It is pure joy to be in His splendid presence and to know we always will be near Him!
—— Gloriously arrayed flowers in pinks and reds and blues and purples at once appeared all over the earth, their mellow scents adding to spicy breezes. Lush green fields dressed in white daisies with brown eyes, blue bonnets, fuchsia paintbrushes and yellow buttercups stretched out as far as we can see. We inhaled again to take in the aroma of fig trees rich with green figs and vines heavy with the scent of tender purple and green grapes. A sweet, tart taste of strawberries lingered upon our tongues.
—— The gentle voices of birds sing from trees as we watch lions and lambs, cats and dogs and ferrets, jackals and ostriches, oxen and horses– all of God’s little creatures– lying down together or jumping and playing with one another or speaking in soft tones:  all things and we are at peace; so much so that we no longer remember the agony of tense muscles, stress headaches, painful illnesses or injuries knocking us down again and again.
—— Enriched and full, we reluctantly left Ishi’s house for our own lands, where we had built our homes of cedar and fir and only we live in them. We planted vineyards and only we eat the fruit of them. No one will ever again take our homes from us, as in the old world, nor eat of our gardens and fields, leaving little for us; for we shall never again labor in vain or cause trouble: we are seeds of the Branch and Stone of Seven Eyes, the all-knowing Jesus Christ blessed of Ishi.
—— We call one another neighbor, brothers and sisters of One Father who says we are like polished corner stones of a palace; our harvests plentiful, our sheep by the thousands and oxen infinitely strong and untiring: we and God’s creatures are equal in all things: angels serve Gentiles and Gentiles serve Jews and both care for the animals while Ishi ministers to us all. There are no curses of disease or death of any living creature on land, air or sea, only the knowledge of looking upon God’s perfect reality: nothing hidden behind a veil of vile illusions and deceit.
——We are settled and each week our kings call out, “Come, let us go to the mountain of Ishi, to the house of the God of Jacob, and He will teach us of His ways and we will walk in His paths.” Redeemed nations flow into Hephzibah, capitol of our world. With great excitement, we make this trek for every Sabbath and each new moon Sabbath– the latter symbolizing undying renewal– to praise and worship our Lord who keeps His promises, “When you call upon me, I will hear and answer while you are still speaking.”
—— O, how blessed are we that Ishi ordained peace for us and created all our works in us, blessed that we are no longer poor and needy, blessed that He made the desire of our hearts and souls to obey His judgments and devotion to His name and to remembrance of Him. Once trusting in graven and molten images, those icons and money our gods, had shamed us; but today those things are gone and we humbly say, “The Lord is my God!”
—— O, how beautiful our earth adorned in rich arrays of color, how sweet the aromas upon clean air whispering through mighty green oaks and fir and nut trees, the scent of almonds and cinnamon, fresh grass soft against our bodies as we lay in lush meadows looking up at a rich blue sky. How serene the sounds as water flows and ebbs in the rivers, waves in constant rhythm rushing upon and retreating from the seas and oceans enhance the sweet song of birds, a sense of peace in every fiber of our world and our senses. O, how righteousness rewards with perfection and equality in all things.

IMAGINE ALL THIS AND KNOW IT IS REAL AND FOR US— YOU AND ME!

The above descriptions are not some writer’s fantasy: they are in God’s Word, scattered here and there throughout. It is hoped this paraphrased gathering of scriptures give much hope and anticipation to Christ’s Saints. The terrors are about to end and our recovery about to begin in heaven, that we may again live upon earth restored to its former glory.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ the never ending of “Imagine This”

Dearest brothers and sisters, pray unceasing for your brethren and your enemies; harm no living creature or man; stand fast in obedience, speaking only God’s Truth at every turn; fear not what man can do to these old, frail, temporary bodies– he cannot touch the spirit whom we are and shall remain forever alive!
—— Most of all, see and envision every night the scene of new earth captured above; welcome it into your mind and hearts and souls; eagerly anticipate Christ’s arrival, for it comes quickly. Imagine the mansions reserved for us during our millennial stay in heaven’s grandeur, for they are as plush and beautiful as will be our new earth; imagine your new perfect bodies, our recovery complete; and, dream of a renewed earth to which we shall return with our awesome King of kings and Lord of lords!

May your nights be restful in Christ,
