In Revelation, chapter 22, we get a glimpse of the new earth and new heaven. Where New Jerusalem has come down from heaven and we now get a glimpse of what it will be like to be with God in this place. God showed John in a vision of these coming days in the future. Those who will enter through the gates will see the following… “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him.” (Revelation 22:1-3) So just like paradise, we learn that the spring of living water is in this place, which runs from the throne of God. We also have access to the tree of life, of which Adam and Eve were strictly told to not partake of. However, we are now permitted to eat of the fruit, for the people who are saved and are now here. The tree of life is for the healing of the nations, of which nothing that is living is cursed anymore. That means we won’t get sick, along with plants, and animals. Imagine the sights you will see. Fields of flowers and trees that are full of life and much more. We also learn that we are God’s servants and we will serve Him for the rest of our days. It will be a joyful time. Amen.
In this most wonderful and blessed time, we won’t help but give praise and worship to our Lord God, and King. Jesus will be with us, along with the Father in Spirit form. No person has ever seen the Father’s face, but we will in this time. Because we truly love God and all that He is, we also have His Name written on our foreheads. This began with the hundred and forty-four thousand Jews on earth and has passed down to every person who is also saved. Praise God. Although the sun and moon will not be around any longer, there will be no night. No candles are needed also, for the Lord God lights up this place much like the sun would. The Lord reigneth and we will reign with Him. It is written, “and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.” (Revelation 22:4-6) This is heaven on earth and will be amazing in every way. My friends, if you have not given your life to Jesus, please do so today. I pray that you will be saved and also be entitled to partake of the blessings in the New Jerusalem. This is where we want to be, not in the lake of fire, where we are tormented day and night, but at peace in a world where there is no pain. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, help us live for You. Your coming is soon at hand, where the world will be judged according to their works. So many people will be begging to have another chance at life, but all be finished at this point. What people did on earth will carry forth with them in either hell or paradise. This is very sad to think that any person would wish to die and go to hell. Where they will be tormented in fire until they are judged. I would not want to be this person, who will also find out in judgment that their name is not written in the book of life. This would mean the lake of fire is their final destination. And I would not wish this ending on any person’s life on earth. Lord, help people understand that they will not be able to work their way out of hell and be saved, if they end up there. Instead, put a burning desire in every person who would call upon Your Name to live for You now, while we still have breath. The doors that lead to salvation are only open for a short time and then will be closed off to us come death. God, I have seen many people die in their sins and it is very sad to see at funerals. This really begs the question, why? Why would people turn their backs on you and get tied down in a sinful and unbelieving lifestyle which would never save them? And why do people leave their first love, which is You, Jesus, and choose to stop confessing and forsaking their sins? I pray that people will wake up to their sins and get right with You today. I love You, Lord. I want to be with You when all is set and done, where the New Jerusalem is on earth. Lead me home, God. Amen.
