"For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better." - Philippians 1 V23
"Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words." - 1 Thessalonians 4 V17, 18
The apostle Paul desired to depart and be with Christ, for once he was caught up in Paradise and heard inexpressible words that is not lawful for a man to utter. Heaven will be a place of joy in the presence of the Lord. Believers from all over the world will one day be caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. But until the Lord returns we ought to remain faithful in serving Him and waiting for Him. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
