This is Mr. Bradley Junior welcome you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible.

Our this is anniversary month and I would like for you to receive our package of two CDs, one has a message on the glory of God, and another has 14 him if you like the music that you hear on this broadcast.

You want to get this CD. It's the first time this collection of hymns has been available on CD, so address your letter to the Baptist Bible. Our box 17/37, Cincinnati, OH 45217. Please mention the call letters of the station for which the program comes to you, Jesus is in heaven today. Happy place to be. Heaven is not just a place where people are floating around on clouds or enamored with streaks of golden gates of pearl to place their focus is on Jesus and they do like to be with you. Look at Revelation chapter 5, beginning in the ninth verse and they sung a new song, saying, thou art worthy to take the book open the seals thereof, slain and has redeemed us to God, but I blotted out of every kindred, and tongue and people and nation and estimators unto our God kings and priests, and we shall rain all singing in heaven, sometimes singing down.

Here's especially beautiful. The voices of blending the spirit of God is stirring our hearts.

The truth is being proclaimed in the him your spirit soars to rejoice in the singing of hymns and worshiping God. Sometimes we get a sour note.

Sometimes crack voices just don't cooperate fully.

Sometimes we just don't quite stay together first grader leaders in heaven be a sour note not going to be anybody failing to keep time to sink in absolute and the singing is all about Jesus giving him glory and out of town and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne of the beast of the elders and the number that was Tim times 10,000 something special about being in a place where there are a number of people singing the same song about the same Savior. You have a good time singing by yourself some Laurentian directs a lot of the songs on the radio broadcast quite a singer many years ago. He was trapped with preaching trip. We sat down one day the house where we were staying to start going to the book and the two of us sat there saying for the better part of the thing just to us.

We had we had a good time sink just like Joe hearts. Well it's even better when you come whole congregation singing. I think probably the largest congregation I've ever been a part of this people singing praises God something in excess of 5000, and hear voices lifted up singing praise to Jesus Christ is just awesome, says there are 10,00010,000 and a small one exciting time with joyful experience. One of the sad things about her experience here.

We can be a good meeting with several days of preaching to fellowship and singing in the time comes.

Single-action same the parting hand said leave but this song question heaven not going to be a sad farewell last week. No do you bring justice without trying to think about the fact that God has ever happened again.

He always existed, I believe going to heaven and being with him for the him. Sometimes when we've been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun meeting on time at 10 million years whatever you want to intrude in your view, still because the fact is, it's those on these multitudes are saying with a loud voice of the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing every creature which is in heaven and on earth and such as room to see all are in that them heard the saying blessing and honor and glory and sins upon the throne lamp 20 p.m. time stop to realize that for us to get discouraged and depressed because things aren't going to sushi. The best is yet to come. Something wonderful and glorious on the others strengths are there to the whole Hughes glory something wonderful. I don't have words to describe in the Gospel of John chapter 1 verse 14 and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory of the father full of grace and word was made flesh.

Jesus Christ was with the father came to this earth became a man among us. We found his glory certainly glory in him, through him in his very presence here, but much of it was shielded by his body/man in his natural state could not have given his full glory.

Now there was a time the three of his disciples had the privilege of seeing a special display Matthew chapter 17. The first verse. After six days Jesus taketh Peter, James and John, his brother and bring them up to the high mountain apart and was transfigured before them, and his face did shine as the sun and his raiment was quite it was transfigured.

Think of the pleadings of the sun shone so brightly to find difficulty looking directly into don't be looking directly at the sun and when Jesus was transfigured, his face did shine as the sun. His raiment was white as a whole. There appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with them, then answered Peter and said unto Jesus Lord is good to be here right this is good for us to be here when let us make three tabernacles, one for me and one for Moses and one for allies.

We just like to set up camp leave while he yet spake to hold a bright cloud overshadowed them smelled a voice out of the cloud, which said, this is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased. He disciples heard it, they fell on their face and was one great this is one of the voice of God from heaven saying this is my son is afraid Jesus came and touched them and said, arise not experienced not only to have been in the presence of the son of God, as he traveled here on this earth hearing his messages by holding his miracles, but to be with him at the time of his transfiguration is Lori was an Peter refers to that when he writes his epistle second Peter chapter 1, the 16th verse, we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his Majesty he received from God the father honor and glory, when there came such a voice from to him from the excellent glory, this is my beloved son and well spent the money to travel from time travel long distances to attend the concert to see a celebrity stand in long lines, all kinds of things to be sure to get a ticket to get in and see some musicians perform and with all of the travel and all effort and all the money spent see him for maybe a couple hours performance and talking to you today about the fact the Saints in glory just see some musicians, some entertainer that this some celebrity talk about being there to see Jesus the King of Kings and Lord of moments to see exciting yes he desires you with him that we consider the fact that his people also have a desire to be with God's children are strangers in this world is that this is this is not their phone.

First Peter two verse 11, I beseech you, strangers felt something like a stranger traveling here in this world like you fit in, that might indicate there's a spiritual problem. If you really have a close walk with the Lord. If you have some sheep in communion with him.

You know what it is to be a stranger, I beseech you abstain from fleshly lust war against this world is not Hebrews chapter 13, the 14th verse says we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come. Things are constantly check living the city over 60 years have seen a lot of changes, some of them are good. Some of the Fountain Square has undergone dramatic changes downtown Cincinnati has changed significantly, trying to clean out some things at home have a bad habit of holding all the things for a long time so I got car speaking strictly for 56 years ago some proven I remember the old days come across some people to pass all come across something people don't like me anymore as well.

I like to think back cards in boxes from Sheila toes and McAlpine and maybe encourage old-timers remember that I like those old stores are likely. Things used to be used like some of the old-time ways which will pastor the church back in the mountains of Kentucky where we have a stove in the church and you burn up on one side froze on the other, so I'm glad for improvements in that area, but things felt save stay the same things are constantly changing.

We have no continuing city, but we seek one to come, and consequently we are to be seeking those things that are above I swear are interested, live, Esq. fiction should be Colossians chapter 3 verses one to if ye then be risen with Christ, see those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand.secular affection on things above, not on things on God's children are strangers long to be with him long to be in heaven because it's only there that we will ultimately have complete satisfaction, lasting satisfaction, peace and joy for ever express. Even in the songs of the Old Testament. One of them being some 17 in the 15th verse, David says.

As for me, but hold my face in righteousness shall be satisfied when I wake with my likeness. That's when I will be perfect lasting satisfaction. I will be satisfied when I wake, and then the apostle Paul speaks to this issue in the book of Philippians chapter 1 verse 23, for I am a straight betwixt to desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. I trusted and understand some of the text we read the things we commented on that. Indeed, the child of grace. It's far better be at home with the Lord that I have a conflict. I'm in a straight betwixt to strong desire to be with Christ far better than anything here last five in the flesh is more needful for you, it's me so that I remain your to minister to you to preach to you to serve God back to you long for heaven are the so-called and worldly things that you have to say will Lord you little more time to plan directly to someone more time understand that you said or not I'd like to carefully Jesus a life sentence about thinking of leaving your wife or husband want me with getting down to what is really of greatest interest to note one thing that our ministers are found traveling frequently in these foreign countries is people who live in total poverty are very to hear about heaven. I love to talk about. They got nothing to hold a single day in this country we have so many comforts, some of the material possessions. So many things to involve us in entertainment and recreation that maybe little time is spent thinking about. Have you set your affection on things above don't think the earth second Corinthians chapter 4 goes into greater detail on this whole matter. Verse 17 says for our light affliction might be prone to want to dispute figures new printer about how heavy my burden is how great my affliction is I don't think it could be called like, but you got understand Paul is writing with respect to a contrast contrasting whatever the infliction of the moment to the joys that the wages are light affliction, which is but for a moment sometimes it seems affliction left on it is just a moment and it worked before us a far more exceeding and eternal weight while we look not at the things which are seen, we spend much of our time looking at the things that are seen.

We look at the material things we look at the things of this earth and everything here is going change nothing here is permanent. This will be consumed by fire Monday. Julie says look not at the things which are seen with the things which are not seen for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are those by faith after the those as we spent time reading the word of God meditating upon these wonderful troops in their force pulling all the house of this tabernacle were dissolved. We have a building of God house not made with hands, eternal in the end of this week grown earnestly designed to be called upon with our house, which is from heaven. This is not an attitude so frustrated with my fighters. I don't care. God would have his children to have Joe and peace and contentment and be thankful for David benefits and to enjoy life while the other hand, when you think about the burdens of precious down that in our afflictions are working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. We desire to be close upon with the new house. If so, please let being cold, we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle. Do grown being burdened, not for that we would be unclothed but called upon that mortality might be swallowed up of verse eight we are actually and willing rather to be from the body and to be present with the action from the body is to be present with believer dies their spirit goes immediately to be with. There is no middle ground. There is no purgatory. There is no soul sleeping go immediately into his presence to be with him for that. As difficult as it is preached on life reading some will actually be in heaven viewing his face. These are the Jesus wants me to draw something like a total but by me. He punches me he redeemed me by. Appreciate the brilliance of his glory. God's children should have a great interest in heaven because your father is there.

He said pray like this father which what art in your name is Luke chapter 10 verse 20 he says that your name is written in heaven give good thought as a child of God. Your name is written your name again here. What this job. Hospitals educate some will all hospital equipment they become your name name written in your inheritance is first Peter chapter 1 verse four said you have an inheritance at inflated whatever you built up over your life is not permanently think about it when you leave you take in some of your investments might crumble some of you may feel well. I'm sure thankful I'm Social Security.

How secure file when you look at the expenditures of our government and the changing scenes you know there's nothing here secure secure and x-rays are like and take what belongs to you is reserved for not only that believers who have already done many of you here today have locals that you believe are now with the Lord. That's not the primary interest of going to heaven focuses on Jesus.

If you still enjoy thinking she does, before first Thessalonians 413, he tells us that were not to sorrow, even as others which have no hope tells us about that great day when the Lord comes back the dead in Christ shall rise first. In the letter that are alive and remain shall be caught up together in the air.

And so what can we be part of this message is all about.

Think being able to see that there was she that loved one went on some kind of be with the Lord, or even that little baby that you held in your arms and couldn't understand Lord wanted to have to go solution. Jesus says these were given to me to be with me if he decides to take the children on hold before we were ready to give.

We mustn't complain, say, Lord. I'm thankful for your grace, thankful you want this one to be with you and comforted by the fact that there now to better place.

What an amazing expression father. I will also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where they made the whole. My glory, which thou hast, for the love of sleep before the foundation of Jesus praying for my lecture today were printer I like to have you been convicted, nutrition the good news of the people. Jesus came to say not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance seen the hopelessness of finding help from any other source understand Jesus is the only Savior he spun everlasting life is to send him the company I'm in no wise cast comes repentance and believing on Jesus Christ. It is an evidence that you are one of the before he went to the cross.

Pray for you today. Once again I want to encourage you to write the snow that you listen to the program. It helps if you mention the call letters of the station over which it comes to you.
