There is a beautiful hymn: ‘Softly And Tenderly Jesus is calling. Come home, come home, ye who are weary come home.’
Many churches use this hymn as the invitation hymn to invite people to receive Jesus in their hearts.
WHAT MEANING HAS THE EXPRESSION ‘COME HOME’ FOR YOU?
FIRST OF ALL, I know this is an invitation to rest/trust in ‘Jesus’ rather than the things of the world. And, though I appreciate our home very much, my real Planet Earth home was my person-to-person relationship with ‘Jesus.’
SECONDLY, I know the truth that when I finished my life here on Planet Earth, I would go to ‘MY HOME’ in the City Of God Above.
THIRDLY, one result of this is that Holy Spirit has had me do both short and long range planning for my life here on Planet Earth, but He [HS] has me always give priority to preparing for when the City Of God above would be ‘my home.
Hebrews 11:10 – For he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
HOLY SPIRIT: The background of this verse is about Abraham knowing that as he journeyed through life on Planet Earth the promise/blessings of Our Father, was with him. On the one hand, this meant that there was even some prosperity, which were desirable blessings. But on the other hand, Our Father had Me ‘HS’ place within Abraham a ‘SPIRIT’ of looking for a ‘city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. This means that the priority I ‘HS’ placed in Abraham was to look for the City Of God Above rather than to seek after blessings and prosperity.
When you became a Born Again Christian, I [HS] placed within you a ‘spirit of Abraham,’ and as a result you find that you have a greater desire to prepare for the City Of God Above more than to seek after material things.
2 Corinthians 5:8 – We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
HOLY SPIRIT: As you knew this verse of Scripture I ‘HS’ placed within you the ‘spirit of Abraham.’ From then on, I [HS] impressed you to prepare yourself each day for the possibility that each new day might be the day when Our Father had planned for you to leave Planet Earth and go to the City Of God above. You are still very happy to live here on Planet Earth as long as Our Father wants you to do so. But you also know that I [HS] have given you the guideline that each new day could be the time in your life when Our Father has planned for you to go to the City Of God Above. And from Me [HS] you will never receive the desire to set your own time for the physical death experience.
