On that glorious day, I believe the Heavenly Father will speak affirming words to all who endured and remained in right-standing with Him. I will only attempt to convey what my holy imagination tells me He will say to different types of people. On that day, everything will finally make sense as we are all completely formed to His image and are given the new heavenly bodies. We will be made perfect! It will all be worth it!
To the person with the major deformity or rare disease, the Heavenly Father will say:
Thank you, and well done My good and faithful servant! Thank you for showing others how to live in victory in spite of your circumstance. Thank you for not believing the enemy of your soul who tried to get you to believe that I loved you less. I needed people to persevere and show the world the true definition of strength and character. So I chose you long before you were formed in your mother’s womb. I envisioned your bravery and how your life would bring Me glory. You have no idea how many souls you touched and inspired! You held your head up high above the taunts, the jeers and the stares and chose to keep your eyes on the cross of Calvary. You allowed the blood of My Son to cleanse away self-pity, doubt and unbelief. I was there right beside you the entire time up until you breathed your last. While I had to comfort those around you, I rejoiced because I knew that you would be forever in My arms. You fought the good fight! Long suffering has paid you eternal dividends! Now go and see all that your faithfulness has given you for eternity!
To those who died young, the Heavenly Father will say:
I was always jealous for you. Before this earth existed, I adored you and knew that I could only send you to the earth for a short time. Yes your days were short and few but a part of My masterful plan. I couldn’t bare the thought of you having to remain in all the wickedness and evil of the world. I needed you by My side sooner than later. So thank you for shining My light and being salt to those around you. Thank you for learning how to embrace each step of the path I laid out for you with gladness and joy. I fashioned and formed your infectious smile and aura with My precision, and it brought Me such great delight! You left imprints of My glory after you breathed your last. I have come off of My throne and am running to you with open arms because we are now reunited. Now you will bask in My light for eternity and reign with Me forever and ever! Your reward awaits you!
To the artisans who went unrecognized, to those who dreamed big but seemingly came up short, the Heavenly Father will say:
I saw your sorrow that you kept hidden and I bottled up all of your secret tears. However, I rejoiced when you decided to choose joy over happiness. I gave you marvelous gifts that were for My glory. They were like precious jewels that a woman would keep locked in her jewelry box away so nobody would take them. Thank you for allowing My spirit to tame the wild stallion in your heart. Thank you for worshipping Me and not your gifts, charisma and ideas. Thank you for choosing the audience of Me over the audience of many. I needed secret weapons in the spirit realm for specific times and you held on to your faith. You allowed Me to use you the way I always had intended. Thank you for choosing Me over fame and riches. Thank you for being a pure vessel that only desired My presence and for My purposes to come forth. Thank you for not trusting in the promises of worldly success and trusting in the life I predestined for you. Thank you for not taking yourself too seriously and overcoming jealousy and envy of those who I chose to use in a more visible way. Your weapons remained razor sharp and defeated demonic forces in ways you would never know. Your gift caused great conviction, edification and repentance to those assigned to you. The applause of heaven shall now forever fill your ears! Go see all the rewards that never gathered up dust!
To the soldiers killed in war and those who died saving the lives of others, the Heavenly Father will say:
Your bravery has earned you a glorious crown that will forever sit upon your head. No greater love is there than for a man who will give his life for others. I placed that love on the inside of you. In a world full of pride and selfishness, you remained selfless. You showed the world the true meaning of sacrifice and became a hero. Not only are you forever remembered in the earthly realm, there is a chapter in the Book of Life that is all about you! I’m your daddy and I will always say, “This is my child in whom I am well pleased.” You are of the chosen few throughout the ages who believed in something enough to die for. So in essence you truly lived! Enjoy the eternal fruits of your labor! For they were never in vain, and when I tried them in My holy fire they held up and remained. Now go see all that you have gained!
To those who were martyred, the Heavenly Father will say:
Your death was victorious! It shook the very foundations of hell and caused demons to tremble! Your blood spilled and turned the hearts of many into fertile ground. Many lukewarm souls were made hot by your death. Many others came into My kingdom after witnessing or hearing about your passion for Me. You brought in a great harvest! Thank you for not loving your life till death. Your unwavering obedience kept you on that narrow path no matter where it would lead to because you trusted in Me. The truth is that I suffered with you even up to the moment when your earthly body was killed. But now I adorn you in this white robe. You will now rest in My glory and enjoy pleasures forever more! The pain your flesh endured has given you access to everything in My kingdom! Go and behold treasures that have been never seen!
This life will have its troubles, but He said that he would never leave us no forsake us. Life is not fair, according to mankind’s standards. But Isaiah 55:8-9 says “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” (NKJV) His plan is perfect despite whatever might seem to manifest in the natural. We have to trust in what we cannot see. We must walk by faith and not by sight. Trust the Heavenly Father as He is saying “It will all be worth it!”
