I feel sad

Well, after such a happy and beautiful ending one would expect me to feel happy and elated. Yet I feel sad.

Why?

I can't help but think of us here in this life. Where are we in the prophetic stream of time?

We Christians long for the day that our Lord Jesus will come and make all things new. How long until that day?

I feel like I've been following the longing for the end of the last battle all through the series, and it was so wondrous to read the renewal of the earth at the end! But yet I come back to reality and look out my own window and realize that we ourselves have such a long way to go before we see such renewal for real, for ourselves.

How long will this be? How long must we wait? When will we see all things made new?

I feel amazingly joyful after reading the book! The beauty and glory of all things being made new is such an exciting hope and promise that we have!

But I can see why you feel sad...our hope is yet unseen...

I felt the same way. Partly because the series had ended, but you're right. When I had to go back to reality, and it was so bleak, it was kind of depressing.

But the book is very encouraging as well. I think it's supposed to help us look forward to when all things become new, and Jesus returns, and that's something I can't wait for!

Sometimes I feel sad about finishing a series I've been anticipating. I'm like "well now it's over."

That's true. When I finished I thought, 'Alright, now what to do with the rest of my life...' lol. I've been waiting for this book since I was eight.

I felt sad when the book ended. But it made me long more for the day when we to will go to the Holy Mountain. I can't wait for the day when all the faithful dead will rise again. The book was an amazing picture into the furture.

That's it! You just put into words what I've been feeling. I've been so blue since I finished and I couldn't figure it out. But that's it. I'm just so full of longing for the day that our own world is cleansed. Thanks. Now I have a reason to explain my weird and depressing mood swings.

Yeah, I got into that feeling too. doesn't it just make you want to jump around screaming with joy that that's going to happen for us too?

*sigh*

it also makes one feel sad when one thinks about all that must happen before the end...
