Verse of the Day

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride, beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of thing has passed away. —Revelation 21:2-4

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of ready for that old order stuff to go away. The end of tears, death, mourning, crying and pain sounds pretty good to me! No wonder the early Christians would say, “Marantha. Come Lord Jesus!” They couldn’t wait.


My Prayer…

Holy God, please help me as I try continue serving you faithfully. My desire is to be steadfast in my love and living for you until the glorious day that so many of your children have longed for over the centuries. I long to see you in your glory and to share in your presence and to join with the saints of all ages praising you around your glorious throne. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.

  1. This portion of Scripture is talking about those things that will take place after Christ has returned to earth and cast Satan into the bottomless pit for eternity (Rev. 20:3). There is now a new heaven and a new earth, there is a New Jerusalem that comes down out of heaven and is never said to land on earth so we assume that it hovers around the earth. The nation of Israel has now accepted Jesus Christ as their Messiah and they, along with all those who have accepted Christ, will have a close relationship and communion with God. There will be a coming and going back and forth between the new earth and the New Jerusalem.
    There will be no crying, pain, death, or sorrow…..for God’s people these will be forever ended!

    You may be thinking at this point that this sounds a little like a Sci-Fi movie! Our human minds are so limited to fully understand all that God has in store for His children in heaven. He tells us just enough to give us an idea of what will take place, but not the whole scope of it by any means. One thing is sure, we will be forever with Jesus and that will be all that we need to be happy, content, and joyful for eternity! We know that God can be trusted to care for us as a loving Father, for that is exactly what He is to those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ and His blood for the forgiveness of their sins.

    Thank You Father God, I love You so for all that You have done and will do to prepare a place for me in Your heaven. I am so amazed that You even care about me, let alone love me as Your child. Help me to live my life For Your glory this day, Amen!
