Oh Lord, prepare us now to enter the house of the Lord, even New Jerusalem. I know that this great city will come down during the times of the new earth and new heaven, after every person is judged. But it is my prayer that You will help me in this life and give me the strength to endure life’s trials. Temptations can be hard to resist, but doing Your will is far better than the consequences of sin. I am just so grateful that Your blood has covered me and that I am made whole. You have cleansed me from all my sins and placed me on a path of righteousness. Truly, Your holiness is in me and helps me live differently than I once lived. It is no longer about me trying to live for You, but a lifestyle change. Through You, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, I am born again. Thank You for rescuing me and for putting Your light in my life. It is my desire to see many more people be saved. For this reason, I go out on mission trips and on the streets to witness Your truths to people. Will every person accept Your gospel message? Absolutely not, but some will. I go after the few who will turn from their sins and follow You, Jesus. You give me the boldness and courage to talk to every person I can. I love You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.
Revelation 21:9-11 (KJV)
9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
We are the bride of Christ as His true believers, but so is the New Jerusalem, which will make His bride complete.
