Heirs, We Inherit the Kingdom
ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world. Matt. 25:34
Before the ransomed throng is the holy
city. Jesus opens wide the pearly gates, and the nations that have kept the
truth enter in. There they behold the Paradise of God, the home of Adam in his
innocency. Then that voice, richer than any music that ever fell on mortal ear,

Every sinful tendency, every imperfection, that afflicts them here, has been
removed by the blood of Christ, and the excellence and brightness of His glory,
far exceeding the brightness of the sun, is imparted to them. And the moral
beauty, the perfection of His character, shines through them in worth far
exceeding this outward splendor. They are without fault before the great white
throne, sharing the dignity and the privileges of the angels.
