Certainly every believer has a relationship with God through Christ; however, when the believer is glorified and is given entrance into heaven, a new improved and glorious relationship with Him begins. This new relationship will definitely be the highpoint of everything that is new, so much so that an angel will announce, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them” (Rev. 21:3). This phrase describes what kind of a relationship we will begin to have with Him—as a husband and wife that are bonded together in love (Eph. 5:31-32).
In this new holy love bonding, His presence (“the tabernacle of God”) is always with us; and conversely, we will always be His (Rev. 21:3; 22:4); thus He will be for us and we will be for Him.
And in this bond of love which He has for us, there is eternal comfort and a forgetting of all this is sorrowful and painful. John tells us in Revelation 21:4,
And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.
(Read also Isaiah 59:17.)
He also will be our great and lasting satisfaction. He says to us in Revelation 21:6,
It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. (Read also Rev. 22:1-2.)
I also like Jesus’ words to us in John 4:14:
But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.
We have a small taste of this water now; however, in our coming life of glory, that water of life will be so much sweeter and so more satisfying. We will desire nothing else but Him (Ps. 73:25).
