I found this among some old notes, not original, of course, but it has blessed my soul in recent days. I want to share it with you.
REVELATION 22:3-5....indicates the sevenfold perfection of where we will reside forever.
1."THERE SHALL BE NO MORE CURSE"..... THIS IS PERFECT SINLESSNESS.
2."THE THRONE OF GOD AND OF THE LAMB SHALL BE IN IT".... THIS IS PERFECT GOVERNMENT.
3."HIS SERVANTS SHALL SERVE HIM".... THIS IS PERFECT SERVICE.
4."AND THEY SHALL SEE HIS FACE".... THIS IS PERFECT VISION.
5."HIS NAME SHALL BE IN THEIR FOREHEADS"....THIS IS PERFECT RESEMBLANCE.
6."THERE SHALL BE NO NIGHT THERE"....THIS IS PERFECT BLESSEDNESS.
7."THEY SHALL REIGN FOREVER AND EVER".... THIS IS PERFECT GLORY.
I went to the doctor yesterday, and he had great news for me. He said that if I would allow them to give me chemotherapy, that I would live an extra two months. Joyce and I have decided that it is not worth it. I think that you would agree that: "the hoary head is a crown of glory", if it be found in the way of righteousness" (Proverbs 16:31)
Keep in touch. The house in which I reside is falling to pieces...but I am younger than I was ever before....in HIM.
