How He Does It

God guides—but not by supernatural visions, hunches, whispers, hunches, etc., etc.

How then?

Listen to Psalm 73:24:

You guide me with Your counsel, and afterwards You will take me up in glory.

Who counsels the counselor? God counsels us. And we have that counsel in the very book from which this verse is taken—the Scriptures!

He is the One Who guides believers throughout their lives by His wonderful truth, and this guidance is leading them through the tangled web of the present evil world-order to Himself—in a destination “above.”

Jesus said to the believing thief on the cross that, upon their deaths, they would be together in “paradise.” According the Paul the third heaven is where Paradise[1] is (2 Corinthians 12: 2, 3). But that isn’t all. According to Paul, true Christians shall eventually be resurrected and given new bodies (1 Corinthians 15). In these we will dwell for all eternity (see Revelation 21, 22). But that isn’t all either! Some day we shall live in these bodies in a new heaven and earth! How wonderful that all His saints may look forward to such a marvelous future! [These facts deserve those three exclamation marks!]
