"What do saints do after they die?" No one has ever died and come back to tell us the exact details, but the Apostle John claims to have been given a glimpse of what the saints will do. "They will do a lot of singing," he writes. It was impossible for him to share the tunes, but he does share with us some of the texts.
First of all, the saints sing a victory song. Jesus, who was crucified, reigns victorious in heaven. The future of all things belongs to Jesus. The destiny of every tribe and language and people and nation are in the hands of Lord Jesus. The saints are joined by all the peoples of the earth in singing the praises of Jesus.
Secondly, all the creatures of the land, air and sea are also a part of this heavenly chorus. One is reminded of Paul's words, "At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
A friend who was on her death-bed asked me, "What will happen to me after I die?" "I can't give you all the details," I replied, "but John says that heaven will be a happy place. It will be a happy place because Jesus is there and guarantees us a LIFE free from all enemies, and all limitations."
I love to read about this heavenly choir, because it will be the first choir in which I will have ever been asked to sing. Sit close to me, all you saints. I will have a new voice.
Jesus, we don't know the details of what comes after death, but it is enough to know that you will be seated on the throne, and we will join with all creation in singing your praises. To your glory, now and forever! Amen! Amen!
