There is no greater prize than the pearl of great price. How We long to be together with you. You are anticipating our union together because then our joy will be complete. Just like a bride and groom look forward to the day they can be together, so you, My bride, long to be with your Bridegroom. All of heaven is preparing for this great celebration, the marriage supper of the Lamb.
I am sending My Son soon, so keep your lamp filled with oil and bring as many as you can to join Us in eternity! Everything you have gone through, all of the pain and suffering of this world, will pale in comparison to the surpassing joy of heaven and being in My presence forever! Keep your eyes on Jesus. It will be worth it all, My love!
Matthew 13:44-46 Living Bible (TLB)
44 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure a man discovered in a field. In his excitement, he sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field—and get the treasure, too!
45 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a pearl merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. 46 He discovered a real bargain—a pearl of great value—and sold everything he owned to purchase it!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.17 For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!],18 Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.
