@ Ravi’s Reception in Heaven would be like:
His Mom & Dad: Welcome home, son.
Malcolm Muggeridge: Ravi, you don’t need to quote me anymore.
Norman Geisler to Jesus: Lord, here is my student.
Ravi to Billy Graham: Did you ask your question of ‘Why God has chosen you to be the Evangelist to the World?’
Jesus comes in….
Jesus holding Ravi’s hand introducing him to His friends, Wesley’s family, Martin Luther, C.S. Lewis, John Bunyan, David Livingstone, William Carey, Hudson Taylor and to many others face-to-face.
Jesus Christ to Ravi: Ravi, I would also like to introduce you to another friend whom I greatly loved while I was on earth. His friends there called him ‘Lazarus, twice dead and friend of Jesus’.
Ravi to Jesus: Lord, I’m so excited to see Lazarus.
Jesus calls Lazarus to his presence….
Jesus to Lazarus: Lazarus, here is my friend Frederick Antony Ravi Kumar Zacharias, of whom I told his coming today to heaven.
Ravi wondered and with tearful eyes: Lord, You called me your friend!! that’s what I always wanted to hear from you and the accolade of well done, my faithful servant!
As Ravi talks, Jesus wipes his tears off his face and hugs him. Ravi overwhelms with joy, peace and comfort that nobody can give in the world.
Ravi to Jesus: Lord, I want to hear a sermon from you.
Jesus to Ravi: Sermon??
Ravi to Jesus: Yes, Lord the one sermon you’ve preached to two disciples on the Emmaus Road.
As Jesus begins the sermon they walk not on streets of Emmaus, but on golden streets.
@ Ravi’s Departure here on earth is like:
Universal Church: We wish you were here on this earth for some more time to navigate us through this dark and evil world. Nevertheless, you’ve given us the light that we needed. Ravi, Thank you!!
We will be missing you! We will see you soon!
