An Easter Celebration in Heaven!

This morning a friend of mine posted this picture on Facebook. I loved it and began re-posting it just as fast as I got it because it really touched my heart. I've been thinking a lot about my Mom and Dad this week, spending Easter in Heaven and how wonderful it must be for them to be together and healthy again, with no more pain and no more sorrow. Together again with all of their loved ones, their parents and brothers and sisters.

I was tired and laid down for a while. While I was resting, the Lord gave me this wonderful vision. He showed me what Easter in Heaven is like. I got a sneak peak!

I knew the minute I woke up I had to start writing and trying to find pictures to explain what I saw! You might think I'm nuts, but I'm gonna try and tell you what the Lord showed me. Maybe you can get some comfort from it too! So anyway, here goes.

Jesus was there waiting for me as I climbed the pearly gates. 
And I had absolutely no problem climbing those stairs at all! 
YEAH! (that's one way I knew I was in Heaven)

It was absolutely beautiful. As he was opening the gates, the chorus of angels 
were blowing trumpets and began singing Hallelujah


As soon as I got through the gates, there were flowers everywhere,
 like they had exploded all over the place. 

They were all around me, in every variety and every color under the sun. 
And there will lots of butterflies too, in every color. It was absolutely glorious!
The further I looked I could see field of flowers everywhere I turned,
 and I was surrounded by a 360 degree panorama of flowers.

Then I saw my Mom and Dad dancing; they looked over and smiled at me. 
I couldn't quite figure out where they were because I was standing in a field of flowers, 
but they were there and they were
 dancing and laughing and smiling at each other and then at me.

My Dad winked at me and was giving my Mom the dip, like he liked to do! I didn't see 
any streets of gold, but they were probably there, just like the Bible promises. 
I was just concentrating on my Mom and Dad so hard I must have missed them.

Then I looked around the there were bunnies hopping around in the fields of flowers. 
And talk about bunnies, there were bunnies everywhere and 
they were all hopping around in the flowers.
They were so cute. There was even a bunny like the one I had when I was a kid. 
Nicodemus was a white bunny with red eyes and he was there too!

After I saw the bunnies, I saw a very long banquet table, similar to this one, 
with people all around each eating and laughing and celebrating. 
And there was beautiful praise music playing. I couldn't hear 
what the song was but I knew it was praise music.

It was like the celebration of the century. I didn't recognize anyone because 
I didn't stay there that long, but it was obvious to me that everyone was having a great time. 

Next I went to the throne of God Almighty. 

There weren't as many people in my vision as in this picture, 
but Jesus was standing right next to His father, I'm assuming
 he was interceding on behalf of those who knew him and accept him as Savior.

Then I woke up! That's it. But what a wonderful dream it was. I know the Lord gave it to me to give me comfort, because I'm missing my Mom and Dad so much. Thank you Jesus for comforting me in that way, and I do feel much better, seeing that Mom and Dad are happy and healthy!

Easter time is an absolute wonderful time of the year. New life, new beginnings, Jesus rising from the dead, defeating death so we never have to fear it again. 

We have been so blessed to be able to watch The Bible Series on TV throughout this Lenten Season. The culmination is Sunday night with Jesus' horrible death by crucifixion and then his glorious Resurrection. Have you been able to watch it and contemplate what Jesus Life was all about?

Time is short, my friends. Life is moving fast. The world is changing and not in a good way. If Jesus comes tonight, are you ready to meet him? Once he comes, it's too late. You must accept him NOW, not after he comes back. Do yourself a favor and change your life forever by inviting Jesus into your life, right now!! 

He's made it so easy for you. All you have to do is sincerely confess your sins to Him and He will wash you completely clean with His blood shed on that cross at Calvary. Accept His perfect gift and spend eternity with Him in Paradise! I mean, really, why wouldn't you want to do that? Why wouldn't anybody want to do that?

Jesus is waiting to receive you onto himself. It's his greatest hope. He wants everyone to come home to Him. John 11:25-36 says "Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

He has Risen, Indeed! Happy Easter Everyone and may the Peace that comes from the Risen Lord be upon you all!

My verse today is above in red.

My prayer for today:

Dear Lord Jesus:

Thank you for your sacrifice on that Cross of Calvary. Thank you for taking my place and receiving the punishment that I truly deserve for my sins. I can never thank you enough Dear Lord. I pray Lord that you will open the hearts of others watching the Bible Series on TV. Let them see you and open their hearts to you as they watch this powerful series about your life and death. Have them fall down on their knees, confess their sins and turn to you Lord.

I pray,
Amen and Amen
