Heaven Bound :: By Holly Spate

You are my portion forever
My King, my God
Worldly evil may last for a moment
But your power will override.

The world is quickly fading
A new heaven and earth is drawing near
Satan soon will be bound forever
And all eyes will be opened and see clear.

Lifting you high, I glorify
Your presence and all that you are
Our coming King, our everything
You bring freedom that satisfies.

Be still now heart,
Take flight now soul
For I honor the only One
Who can make a life whole.

The time’s almost here
I sense that it’s near
No earthly king will have a say
Concerning what will happen on that day.

It’s been set in stone
Recorded long ago
From the very beginning
God would be winning.

No powers below
No powers that be
Can overthrow the Creator
Of all humanity.

The glorious coming of His kingdom is near
May we all be equipped, may we all be prepared
So lift up your head and be of good cheer
We’re heaven bound, our home is not here.

I pray the above poem has lifted your heart and encouraged you.

Just think… He has chosen each of us. He has chosen YOU to be a part of this unique time in history.

With that truth in mind, realize that the handwriting is on the wall.

Anyone paying attention can clearly see that the world is rapidly coming apart at the seams. The planned global chaos put into motion is knocking down the dominoes and affecting everything at an astonishing pace.

For those who believe in Christ, we know how the story ends… God wins! And when God wins, we win!

Soon, this world will be no more, and there will be a new heaven and a new earth. Our King of Kings, the One who should have always been exalted in this earth by all mankind, will be acknowledged as God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth by all.

Romans 14:11 says, “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”

Philippians 2:9-11 states, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

The way the world is going and the pace at which all is happening should make us realize the rapture is nearer than we may think. Like the old hymn says, “Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King… Hallelujah, Hallelujah, we’re going to see the King!”


One day (maybe sooner than we can imagine) we will stand before our Savior and see Him face to face.

You will get to walk with Him, the very One who has walked beside you, created you, protected you, provided for you, saved you and forever loved you.

You will see the place He’s been preparing for you. A place so beautiful, so full of splendor that the human mind can’t comprehend. An awe-inspiring place only the Father could fashion and form… a place of perfection with everything perfectly in place.

1 Corinthians 2:9 says, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

John 14:1-4 states, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”

Matthew 25:34 is a beautiful invitation to all believers: “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”

Just think…

One day you will be reunited with all believers who have gone before.

One day you will walk the streets of gold and get to know personally those you’ve read about and studied for years in the pages of scripture.

One day you will be given an incorruptible body, one that will last and live on forever.

1 Corinthians 15:50-55: “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”


One day, you, along with all your brothers and sisters in Christ, will be called up and will forever be with the Lord for all eternity!


A place of unimaginable peace, calm, and joy.

A place with no injustice, lawlessness, evil, stress or worry.

A place with no sin, no sickness, no sorrow, no death, no taxes, no government, no money, no time, no rushing, etc.

A place void of anything bad, harmful or hurtful.

A place filled with the light and goodness of the Father’s love.

Perfection… pure bliss… the most beautiful, unimaginable existence all prepared and waiting for our arrival… your arrival! All created by our Heavenly Father to enjoy forever.

And forever we will be with the Savior!

Although we each have so much to be thankful for here and now because of all God gives, how much more we have to be thankful for as we experience all He’s planned … a bright eternity yet to explore and a beautiful inheritance yet to enjoy.

There are a million reasons heaven will be so heavenly. There is nothing on this earth that can compare to what awaits us.

Everything ungodly that’s existing and present in this world will be absent in heaven. There will be only good, beauty, justice, righteousness, peace, joy and light… FOREVER!

Are you excited yet?!

With all the doom and gloom in the world and evil waxing worse, I hope and pray this reminder of good things to come brings encouragement, joy and peace. Our time on this earth is but a blip in light of eternity.

As you live out your life in this world, rejoice because you have the blessed hope. Christ died on the cross and rose again; His blood washes you clean of all sin… a gift He gave willingly with unconditional love. He paid a debt He did not owe because you owed a debt you could not pay. He saved and rescued you, and He’s coming back to take you to the place He’s prepared so you can be with Him for all eternity! Now, that’s not just good news; that’s the best news ever!

If you don’t know Him, cry out to Him today… ask Him into your heart and He will gladly, with open arms, receive you. Then, you too will be a joint heir and will spend eternity with the Savior!

I pray all these beautiful reminders will nudge each of us to continue sharing the hope we have with others, being obedient to God’s calling in our lives, and praying for the salvation of the lost.

2 Peter 3:9 states what a loving Savior we serve: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

Jesus, our Savior, is returning! And when He does, He wants to find us ready and doing His will. Do all you can now to joyfully share Him with others.

Keep looking up and be of good cheer…. We’re Heaven Bound!

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

“And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son” (Revelation 21:1-7).
