MORNINGTIME 2747
 
FOR NOW WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY; BUT THEN FACE TO FACE: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 1 Corinthians 13:12. A good way to illustrate this is to say that first, we see things of Heaven with much childlike awe, and very little understanding. Sure, we know streets of gold and big thrones with a river of Life, but that's pretty much it. When we get to heaven we'll see ALL things, Perfectly. And secondly, the things that we see are as if we were seeing them reflected in a dirty mirror, with the more we try to wipe a clean spot, the more we smear mud around. We have only been given just enough actual information to have a tiny "taste" of Heaven to know its a really REALLY GOoD Place to go to. This is why so many liars and cheats write books of going to heaven, talking to god, and coming back to tell us about their wild and wooly fanciful made up stories OF THINGS THE BIBLE SAYS NOTHING ABOUT. To believe their stories is to accept their word as equal to God's word, AND THAT WE DON'T GET TO DO. And with all those books written about Heaven, NONE OF THEM LINE UP WITH EACH OTHER. If 5 guys look at an elephant from 5 different angles, you'll get 5 different stories of what each one saw, AND ALL 5 STORIES WILL FORM A SINGLE PICTURE EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND TOGETHER. There is only one Mind of Christ and all who "see" will see the same thing. The Bible doesn't give us enough information to give us a coherent full picture of heaven, but it does, FOR EXAMPLE, give us ALL the needed information for us to KNOW all about His Soon Return, just not the time of. The problem here is people have their pet ideas and sell books on them, with very little agreement with other book writers. The Books of the Bible have told us all Truth on Christ's Return, and only in the last 200 years have we come to confusion about it. We DO have our own pet ideas of what WE think. Trash them all, (man's ideas), and Seek the Mind of Christ, and, Be Blessed.
