    There are many things I look forward to in eternity but I think this rates as one of many at the top of my list.

    I can’t wait to see all those that cursed that precious name, (especially those Hollywood actors that take the Lords name in vain to get a laugh )and those who spurned his offer of salvation , confess that he is The LORD. and we shout AMEN

    Php 2.
    9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
    10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
    11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Seeing and touching my Savior.
    Not sinning anymore.

    Those are the 2 biggies for me.

    Do I only get to pick one thing? That would be impossible. I'm looking forward to NO sin! I'm looking forward to finally being rid of all my pain and sickness.

    Meeting Christ face to face will be the greatest blessing.

    Plus seeing loved ones, the absence of sin etc.

    Lastly, finally every one realising I am right and agreeing with me...

    ==I think the two things that Amy mentions is certainly right up there at the top. I would also add that I look forward to seeing several people who have passed on.

    I looked forward to seeing who's right and who's wrong also, until I realized I might be the one who's wrong! :eek:

    Nah.

    I look forward to seeing Jesus first..

    Then I can't wait to see Satan thrown into the Lake of Fire!!!
    And all sin destroyed...

    And of course hear the words, "Tiny, you were always right"
    Hey, I can dream right!!!

    I don't think those things are even going to matter to us anymore when we see Jesus

    I'm not exactly sure we know what to expect from eternity...

    perhaps the mystery is the greatest thing; and the length of our stay

    RE: What are you looking forward to in eternity?

    See God, the Father, and our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in Their GLORY

    Being able to see God's face, unlike Moses who could only see his hinderparts in the cliff of the mountain.

    Talking with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Solomon....all the saints of God...Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Apostle Paul...I could go on.

    The thing I look forward to the most.....kneeling before King Jesus and kissing his most precious feet!! The one who died for me!

    I could go on for days and wouldn't even scratch the surface....May God bless us ALL!!!

    To be with the Lord in person.
    To hear my retarded son speak and see him as he was created to be.
    Reunions.
    No more pain or sin.
    The joy, the laughter, the merriment, the beauty.
    To be able to keep learning and working productively.
    To finally understand the ways in which God answered prayers.

    Amen! I do so agree. And then only after seeing my Lord and saviour, seeing my loved ones once again that went on before me.

    To meet my Jesus.

    To meet my daughter, Michal.

    To worship around the throne, without the aid of a worship leader! I mean, who needs prompting when the Lord is RIGHT THERE?!

    I would also (in addition to all the glorious things listed above) like to know all the stuff I've had questions about all my life. I would also like to go back in time and actually see things like...the creation of earth and the heavens...how the serpent was able to deceive Eve...the flood...the parting of the red sea...how the pryamids were built...Jesus while He was preaching and teaching...on and on and on and............:type:

    Silly, I guess.
