The Bible is full of promise.
In the book of Revelation, we are given a glimpse into the future – a time when God will create a new heaven and a new earth. This world will be free from sin and death and will be filled with perfect peace and joy. What does the Bible say about this glorious future? Let's dive in!
The Bible tells us that God will create a new heaven and a new earth. In the book of Revelation, we read these words:
"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away" (Revelation 21:1).
It's amazing to think about all the wonderful things that God will create in this new world.
The Bible says that one day, all pain and suffering will be gone. It says, "God himself will be with them and be their God...He will wipe every tear from their eyes" (Revelation 21:3-4). This is a promise of complete healing – both physical and emotional. What a wonderful future we have in Christ!
This world will be filled with perfect, unending peace and joy. The Bible says that "in the city there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain" (Revelation 21:4). We can look forward to a time when there is no more sorrow or fear. We will be surrounded by love, and God himself will be with us always.
This future can be our reality too! If we put our trust in Jesus Christ and follow him, we have the wonderful promise of eternal life in heaven. Let's commit to living for God today, so that we may one day enjoy this beautiful future with him.
The book of Revelation has a lot of imagery and prophetic messages that can seem scary and are often interpreted in conflicting ways. But within that there are also messages about what the world will be like when God makes all things new. Let's meditate on these wonderful words, and hold them close to our hearts today. We can look forward to an amazing future in heaven – full of love and peace, joy and healing! And this future comes when we build the Kingdom of God now! Praise God for his wonderful promises. Amen.
