No Nurses in Heaven!

hospital hallAs health care workers we have dedicated our gifts and talents to caring for the sick, the disabled and the mentally ill. Our nursing service is a calling or ministry, with God equipping us to care for his children. As Christians, we have joy and confidence in knowing we are doing the Lord’s work.

Yet, even with the blessing of serving the Lord, we yearn for a time without sickness, disease, and death. Our yearning is fulfilled in heaven as described in Revelation 21:4, “Jesus will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

In addition to seeing Jesus face-to-face and loved ones who have gone before me, I am excited to go to a place where there are no hospitals, no clinics, and no nurses! Hallelujah! We will suddenly be unemployed and our services will no longer be needed. This is the good news of the gospel for our patients, their families and for all health care workers. Someday, there will come a time when healthy bodies, minds and souls will live for eternity without the fear of disease, the heartbreak of disability, nor the slow deterioration of aging (1 Corinthians 15:52-55).

We do not know what the Lord has planned for us; however, we do know we can anticipate an eternity without the need for nurses!

This is my prayer for you from Romans 15:13, “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Amen!

Amen! I so look forward to a time of worship with all my brothers and sisters. I can't help, but be reminded of the final verse to Amazing Grace "When we've been there ten thousand years, Bright shining as the sun, We've no less days to sing God's praise, Than when we've first begun." Grace & Peace, Carrie

In heaven nurses will be given a rest from our duties to care for the ill and needy so that we may focus on the Great Physician and worship Him truly!

Lisa, Thanks for your infusion of truth and hope for nurses. May the Word continue to guide you in your daily walk as a child of the Most High and as faithful servant. Blessings, Carrie

This post is made with utmost respect for the author of the original post. This post will quote scripture liberally without a reference please take a moment to search the scripture. I was blessed to be raised in the Word without secular influence for much of my childhood so the Scripture is part of my vocabulary. As an adult the Spirit of truth 'quickens' or makes alive the true things which were taught as a child. We are to ' look up for our redemption draws nigh '....yes the promise of 'heaven'. Someday. Sweet by and by. Yet, somehow I am reminded of Jesus teaching us how to pray- Our Father which art in heaven....thy kingdom come, thy will be done ....on EARTH as it is in heaven. Let's consider this. Would the loving Father and Jesus of the Bible, who said ' the Kingdom of God is at hand' as healed them leave us with- Stay positive, keep fulfilling your 'calling', which is primarily defined by the secular or world culture. NO. Nurses are 'weary and heavy laden' because we are destined to carry the healing light of Jesus Christ! He said- greater things you will do than these i have done. We must all recognize the One who raised the dead did not leave us with...think positive about heaven, out there one day. It is clear and publicly discussed, the present health care system including 'nursing' as we now know it, is both physically and spiritually failing humanity. Revelation also says- We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony and love not our life unto the death. Thank you Jesus. Our lives are hidden with Christ in God. When Chris who is our life, shall appear we will appear with him.WE ARE PRESENTLY SEATED IN HEAVENLY PLACES. Holy Spirit, you shall guide us into all truth. Make our testimony active and alive and bold. Perfect love cast out fear. Inhabit our earthly temples as in the days of old. Be Glorified in me. The old things are passed away...All things are new. Come out from among them and be ye separate. If you choose to be a Nurse Overcomer- welcome aboard. The ship or ark made up of you and I United as a Holy vessel will sail in the 'days of Noah'. We will because HE overcame, rescue the perishing and care for the dying. It's war out there..and you are on the winning side! S.S.Possibilities motto- Speak life. Stand in the Gap. Expect the Impossible. Document the Divine. For more Health Truth please first- Call to Him and He will answer you and show you yo u great and mighty things which you didn't know. If I can help get you aboard, I would be honored to come along side. Blessings, Lisa Sspossibilities@gmail.com
