Heavenly Return and Eternal Rewards
Revelation 22:12 (KJB) And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Some people may read this verse and scoff at the idea of Jesus coming quickly. It is easy to reason God’s timing according to the way we index time in this world. In fact, it seems everything we do is calculated by clocks, timers, and stopwatches in this world. Using that measurement then God has taken a long time to return to His spiritual family.
However, we cannot place God in a neat little box with a timer as we use in this world. For God’s purposes, time is supernatural, or above that which we know or are familiar with in this world. Nothing in God’s world revolves around a clock or a stopwatch.
The Bible tells us in 2 Peter 3:8 that for God a thousand years is but perhaps a day or even as short as a minute to Him. His measurement of time goes beyond any measurement index that we can understand using our finite minds from our limited viewpoint in this world.
We learn from studying this verse that not only will God come quickly, but He will bring His eternal rewards with Him. God will return and reward each child of God according to His harvest of spiritual work in this world.
