Our Future Victory

Do you remember the excitement in 2016 when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series? I think most everyone wanted them to win, although only a few thought they really would. It was the first time they won the series since 1908. Many people started chanting, “The curse is lifted.” What curse? Well, it is a common belief that it started in 1945 when William Sianis tried to bring his pet goat into Wrigley Field during a game. The guards denied them access and Sianis supposedly said, “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more!” 

Now, I don’t believe curses like that have any effect whatsoever. I do believe in another curse, though. It was the result of sin in the Garden of Eden. Thankfully, that curse will not last forever as believers of all ages will live together face to face with Jesus — unthreatened by death, sickness, sorrow, and any kind of evil [Revelation 21.23-27].

I think what excites me most about heaven is that everyone, including the believers who suffered, struggled, and lost everything in this fallen world, will enjoy eternal life — free from defeat and failure. Oh, and one more thing, with God, we will reign forever and ever [Revelation 22.5]. 

And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. Revelation 22.3
