We are still awaiting the ultimate manifestation of the accomplished victory of Christ.
Not having experienced all God has promised this side of eternity does not mean God’s promises or our faith has failed. It puts us in the company of all those who wait to fully experience a city not made with hands. We who live this side of the victory of the cross, join the experience of the saints of old such as Abraham, indeed all the saints in heaven longing for the day when a final “Now” will be uttered from the throne of God. It will shake all that can be shaken.
Miracles as and when they happen are a sign that encourage us to know we are not waiting in vain. The day here, coming and not here yet are the content of the faith the hope that is an example of “on earth as it is in heaven.” In that land of seeing where many of our loved ones now rest without any pain of spirit or soul, there is still the need for waiting faith and waiting hope as well as love.
