Graduation implies victory, success, achievement and a declaration of one’s qualification for something.

We may have worldly graduations however the grand graduation awaits for us in Heaven. For us to attend this grand graduation prepared by God we need to persevere trials and temptations of the world.

You may ask yourselves, what is this graduation all about?

  1. We will be in the company of the Holy Trinity. The book of Revelations 3:21 says, โ€œ To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.โ€
  2. There will be a reception feast as it says in Revelations 2:7, โ€œWhoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.โ€
  3. There will be a special graduation gown, Revelations 3:5 says, โ€œThe one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angelsโ€
  4. There will be an amazing graduation setting, just like how we decorate our graduations on earth, The Lord has decorated the Heavens for us for the grand graduation.
  5. There will be a new Heaven and Earth as Revelation 21:1 discusses, โ€œ Then I saw โ€œa new heaven and a new earth,โ€for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.โ€

Those who will persevere under trials and overcome temptations shall surely graduate and inherit the Kingdom of God. This graduation we surely cannot miss. For the Lord says in James 1:12, โ€œBlessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.โ€
