But to see the Lord return in his glory?
What would probably shake me to my boots.
The sheer magnitude of who he is and seeing it face to face for the first time, I don't know that I would be able to stand.
BUT he will come.
After all these horrible things we have read about, Christ will come.
And not only will he come.
He will gather in his people from all over the earth. He'll send his angels to bring them in.
They will be brought in
- from the four winds
- from the ends of the earth
- from the ends of heaven.
What a gathering that will be.
The joy that will be apparent.
The glory of the Lord that will shine forth.
I still don't know how I would react, but I'm guessing with fear and trembling.
