The Lord our God is not a God who wishes to leave anything undone. He crosses every "t" and dots each "i" to ensure that when the plan has run its course, none can say that miracles were wrought, or things were done that never should be done except the Lord our God had done them. He knows that every time we reach the end of an adventure, the devil will show up and try to say that it was he who had done the deeds and worked the miracles. So God ensures that none can ever take the credit for his handiwork. He makes the devil prove it was impossible for him to have worked the deeds or done the miracles.
He placed on each one's head a golden crown, and on each feet gold shoes; gold being the only thing that can withstand the fires of hell. He clothed us with a robe of white, that would be impossible to cover any but those who are clothed with light, the purest light. So when the rapture is done, the clear distinction is between those clothed in brilliant white, with golden crowns and gold shoes, and those still clothed in darkness, with a crown of green. He tried to fake a crown--God turned it green. He left the robe and shoes to chance, and chance made him a fool. Naked and barefoot with a crown of green, he bids them "Come and worship me for all eternity." And come they did, in numbers far too numerous to count.
When all is said and done, we'll know we took a chance, and chance gave us the winning victor's crown. We took a leap of faith and landed on the far side of eternity. We won the gold.
