The writer rejoices in the way God has graciously dealt with Israel, from the calling of Abraham through many generations, through good times and difficulties.
One of these took place in Egypt when he makes the observation that God sent a man before them Psalm 105:14. Jesus tells us in John 20:21 ’my father sent me’. He was sent on a mission by God to save and preserve those who believe in him. Perhaps more wonderfully Jesus is now in heaven, he has gone before all believers to prepare a place for us in his father’s house, that’s the place we refer to as heaven. Then, secondly, having prepared that place he is going to come and take all true believers to that wonderful place John 14:1-3. Amazingly they will all be transformed into the likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ, 1 John 3:12, so that we will be fit people to live forever in the very presence of God.
