Across Time

Rock OutcropThe Body of Christ was part of history and could never be separated from it. Just as an outcrop on a mountain could have been an example of the rock beneath, so the Body of Christ on earth was only a small part of Heaven's historical body across the ages. She was united and joined historically from the past to the present to the future by Christ himself. Jesus as the head held this historical body across time and the historical body was bound together by God himself. Jesus was with us as Christians not just in this life, but also into Heaven. We were sustained even through death by the prospect of belonging to the future body. Saint Paul wrote in Philippians 3.17-21, "Just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven."

With You Always

G. Campbell Morgan (1863 - 1945)G. Campbell Morgan (1863-1945) the British evangelist, teacher and prolific author read Christ's Great Commission to a devout Christian lady. "I am with you always, even to the end of the age" he said, then added, "that's a great promise." With a twinkle in her eye the lady replied, "Dr. Morgan, that's not a promise, that's reality." Jesus in reality was there at the beginning of Creation and he is with us now and will be with us at the end.✞
