Preparing Me for Eternity
I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into
the place which I have prepared. Ex. 23:20
All heaven is engaged in the work of
preparing a people to stand in the day of the Lord's preparation. The
connection of heaven with earth seems very close. . . .
The heavenly intelligences are waiting
with almost impatient earnestness to make Him known to the human agents, that
they may be laborers together with these heavenly angels in presenting Jesus
--the world's Redeemer, full of grace and truth. . . .
The first tear of penitence for sins
creates joy among the heavenly angels in the courts of heaven. The heavenly
messengers are ready to be on the wing to minister to the soul who is seeking
Jesus. . . .
Grand and glorious things hath God
prepared for those who love Him. Angels are looking forward with earnest
expectation to the final triumph of the people of God, when seraphim and
cherubim and the "ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of
thousands" shall swell the anthems of the blessed and celebrate the
triumphs of the mediatorial achievements in the recovery of man.
Jesus counted the cost of the salvation
of every son and daughter of Adam. He provided abundant means that, if they
would but comply with the conditions, none need perish, but might have
everlasting life. . . . Every heavenly intelligence works as His agent to win
man to God.
The angels of glory find their joy in . .
. giving love and tireless watchcare to souls that are fallen and unholy.
Heavenly beings woo the hearts of men; they bring to this dark world light from
the courts above; by gentle and patient ministry they move upon the human
spirit, to bring the lost into a fellowship with Christ which is even closer
than they themselves can know.
