COME SEE MY MANSION
by Joyful Star
My mansion sits on at least 20 acres bordered by soft high bushes,
all shades of green. All around the inside of the trees is a
shiny yellow fence with gold trim and a fancy latticework gate of
gold that leads into the flower gardens in the front
yard. From the gate the golden walkway with inlaid gems goes left
and right making a circle that meets back at the path to the mansion
stairway. Inside this circle pathway are two beautiful water
fountains. So come on in, enjoy the lovely sparkling water, and
drink some if you like. (Rev 21:6) You may
also pick as many flowers as you like because more will appear in their
place. (Mat 14:17-21) Also in between the
two fountains are beautiful flowers of all colors, planted in the shape
of a cross.
If you're done tasting water and picking flowers, take a moment, before
we get close to the mansion to look at the whole front side.
(John 14:2- 3) The walls are made of a
shiny bluish purple substance, possibly amethyst or sapphire, and there
is a round tower on both corners with a dome top.
(Isa 54:11-12) Now let's walk around to the mansion stairways.
One stairway goes to the right and one goes to the left. The steps
and banisters are made of light gray marble. Just before we ascend
the steps we see a pearl-like doorway right in front of us.
(Rev 21:21) This leads into a very large
banquet hall. OK we are ready now to ascend
the steps. Each stairway has a landing and the next steps lead to
the porch in front of the mansion. From here we see the large
doorway that looks like stained glass.
We would now like to welcome you
into our mansion. Coming thru the vestibule, we find ourselves on the
top landing that is on three sides. There are 3 steps that go down to
another landing, that is just a wide open space in the center. There is
a short pedestal in each of the four corners, with golden flower bowls
that today are holding purple flowers. Straight across from the
vestibule is the stairway to the next floor. To our right is the tower
where we find our library. You will 'see' that each of the rooms are
very large. This library holds several comfortable chairs and couches,
two desks, and of course many books!! (Mal 3:16)
The tower to the left is our music room, large enough to accommodate a
complete orchestra. The biggest thing in here
is a white marble grand piano, for me to play. There are some
harps and several
other instruments, including a guitar for when my Dad comes to visit!
There is a large archway that opens from the music room into the large
room on the left side, so that people can enjoy the music and see the
musicians. This large room would be what on earth you would call a
living room. The room across the wide open space is like a
On each of the other corners at the back there is also a tower with a
dome top. In the left tower are my bins of jewels.
(see "Inside the Gates Of Heaven" page 34)
I use them to fashion gifts for my friends. The
'kitchen' is also in that part of the mansion. Out back are
gardens with nuts, fruit, spices, and more flowers.
(Song of Sol 6:11 & 7:13) So thank you
for coming to visit us. And sometime we will have you to a
O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colors, and lay thy foundations
with sapphires. And I will make they windows of agates, and thy
gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.
Giving thanks to the Father, who made us worthy to be
partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light:
And having delivered us from the power of darkness, has translated us
into the kingdom of His dear Son: in whom we have redemption
through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins." (Col 1:11-14)
