Chris Tomlin – Home – Most Beautiful Hopes
This English christian song “Home” is cheerful. It sings out our most beautiful hopes: We return our home, return to God, return to the kingdom where the streets are golden and the walls are made of pearls and agates to receive God’s promise. We hear the sound of the trumpet and the singing of angels. We break free from all sufferings and emptiness in the world. There are no more crying and pain in our life. We no longer commit sins and resist God, breaking away from Satan’s snare completely and living a new life filled with joy.
The last days have already arrived and the day we long for is near. We all prepare to welcome the Lord’s coming and we also strive to walk in God’s way, meet God’s demands and wait for the Lord’s appearance.
It is written in the, “Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write on him my new name” (Rev 3:12).
From the scripture, we can see that when the Lord comes again in the last days, all things are new, and so is God’s name. At that point, those who have achieved success in the tribulation are overcomers, are good soldiers of the kingdom. So, only overcomers are after God’s heart and have the truth as their lives. They will never lose confidence in God under any circumstance and can carry out the will of God. Just as God says: “No matter how God refines you, you remain full of confidence and never lose confidence in God. You do what man should do. This is what God requires of man, and man’s heart should be able to fully return to Him and turn toward Him at every single moment. This is an overcomer. Those who God refers to as overcomers are those who are still able to stand witness, maintain their confidence, and their devotion to God when under the influence of Satan and under siege by Satan, that is, when within the forces of darkness. If you are still able to maintain a heart of purity and your genuine love for God no matter what, you stand witness in front of God, and this is what God refers to as being an overcomer.” It can be seen that only when we possess true love for God, true faith in Him and loyalty to Him and rely on the truth of His words to triumph over Satan’s disturbances and persecutions can we become overcomers. Only then will we stand testimony for God and obey His orchestration and arrangement in the final days of tribulation. And only then will we receive the praise of God and be taken by God into His kingdom, so that our dream of returning home will come true. We truly become free, released and live under the dominion of God.
