MOUNT SION AT "THE ELEVENTH HOUR"
Thus towers forth the structure of truth, sending forth the message that the kingdom is to be restored by the antitypical prophet Elijah, just before the close of probation, but that the earth being unfit for saints to dwell on it eternally, Jesus shall therefore "come again" and receive all the redeemed (both those who are raised from their graves and those who shall be found alive at His coming -- 1 Thess. 4:16, 17), and shall take them to the mansions above, which He has gone to prepare (John 14:3). Then as the saints ascend and the wicked die, the earth will be left empty and dark (Jer. 4:23-29) for a thousand years (Rev. 20:3), after which the Lord shall descend with the saints (Rev. 21:1-3), purify the earth with fire (2 Pet. 3:10-13), and fit it anew for the saints' eternal abode (Isa. 45:18)!
O what scenes of future glory! Who would miss them! Brother, Sister, you must be there. Whatever you lose here, be determined to make sure of a home there. "...It will be an eternity of bliss a blessed eternity, unfolding new glories throughout the ceaseless ages." -- Testimonies Vol. 8, p. 131.
Behold "...the crystal river and green fields, the waving trees and living fountains, the shining city and the white-robed singers, of our heavenly home, -- that world of beauty which no artist can picture, no mortal tongue describe. 'Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.' " 1 Cor. 2:9.
"To dwell forever in this home of the blest, to bear in soul, body, and spirit, not the dark traces of sin and the curse, but the perfect likeness of our Creator, and through ceaseless ages to advance in wisdom, in knowledge, and in holiness, ever exploring new fields of thought, ever finding new wonders and new glories, ever increasing in capacity to know and to enjoy and to love, and knowing that there is still beyond us joy and love and wisdom infinite, -- such is the object to which the Christian's hope is pointing...." -- Counsels to Teachers, p. 55.
