The Intercession of Heaven, Pt. 2

Revelation 7:15-17 says, “15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”
The second transition in heaven is from feasting to fellowship. The saints of God eat and fellowship together in heaven. There is no Pentecostal side or Baptist side of heaven. There is no black side, white side, hispanic side or Asian side of heaven. We are one body in heaven, rejoicing together in His glory! We will feast and fellowship together in the presence of the LORD. These martyred saints were seen before the the throne of God, and Jesus Christ was seen feeding them, being the source of their strength. Also, we have heard about the infamous Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:7-10). You are blessed if you are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb, and can you imagine what kind of food is served here? It is going to be glorious, but you have to be part of the number of the righteous if you want to receive this invitation! Finally, in Revelation 22:2, the Bible teaches that on both sides of the river of life, which flows from the throne of God, is the tree of life. Remember that Adam and Eve at of the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the Old Testament when they could have eaten of the tree of life and had eternal life on this earth. However, due to their prideful and lustful nature, they sinned against God, and He sent cherubs with flaming swords to protect and guard the tree of life in the midst of the Garden of Eden so that man would not eat it and be eternally cursed. In paradise, there are trees of life, which bear twelve manners of fruit and its leaves are for the healing of the nations. So, in the future, when you are in that heavenly city called New Jerusalem, you will eat of the tree of life, never to die again! You will have eternal life!
All of this eating makes you realize that you will be fellowshipping with one another. How can you go to a wedding banquet and not fellowship with other people? The wedding is Jesus and His bride, the church. That is us! The bride is one body, and in so this unity, we will learn and know who each other is. This leads me to my next point. We will transition from knowledge to knowledge! You will go to a whole new level in knowledge when you enter into eternity, learning more than you ever have. People in heaven remember what happened on earth because their spirit and soul, which is the seed of their remembrance, still continue to live on. When Lazarus and the rich man died and entered into eternity, the Bible says, “24And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented” (Luke 16:24-25). This means that you remember things that happened on this earth. The only reason that the martyrs who were slain for the gospel are seen underneath the altars in intercession is because they remember how they suffered for the glory of God! You do not forget in heaven, but your knowledge only increases because you are forever in the presence of God, and you surrounded by people of God who are already there.
