Rejoice, He’s Coming for You!

Rejoice, He’s Coming for You!

“I will come and get you.”       Jn 14:3 NLT

Jesus said, “I am going to prepare a place for you…When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am” (vv. 2-3 NLT). This was a groom-to-bride promise. In Christ’s day, when a couple received permission from both their families to marry, the groom would return to his father’s home and build a house for his bride. And by promising to do the same for us, Jesus elevated funerals to the same level of hope as weddings. From His perspective, the trip to the cemetery and the walk down the aisle warrant identical excitement. Both celebrate a new era, a new name, and a new home. Rejoice, your heavenly Bridegroom is coming to take you away on His arm! Does that sound too good to be true? Check the record. If you can find one time in all the sixty-six books in the Bible where God made a promise He didn’t keep, you’ll have reason to doubt this one. Your final glimpse of life will trigger your first glimpse of Jesus. Because Christ’s tomb is empty—His promise isn’t. He made it two-thousand years ago, and He’s been working on your new home ever since. Can you imagine what it’ll be like? Living on a tiny, barren island called Patmos, John the Revelator wrote, “There was no more sea” (Rev 21:1 NKJV). Every morning when John arose the sea was all around him; it was the barrier that separated him from his loved ones on the mainland. Think about it; in your heavenly home there’ll be no barriers, no separation, and no limitations.

Sonia, 1 important tip that I've leanred from this posting is that you actually made slits on the whole cake, not just 3-4 slits at one end. I'll keep this in mind! Joceline bought me this book & I've bookmarked to do the polka dots swiss rolls in the future & will definitely use your method. I have a smaller pan here & won't consider of buying a new pan, may be I won't use all the cake batter. Your swiss roll is not only looking cute & you also did a good job in rolling it. I also notice that your cake base is very clean, no trace of the "brown layer" at all. I didn't manage to peel off the "brown layer" completely & hopefully this wont happen again in my 2nd swiss roll!
