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, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell 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 things has passed away.” – Revelation 21:2-4 NIV
There will come a day when there shall be a new Heaven and new Earth. The old shall pass away. From the beginning the reason God created man was for relationship with Him. He is love and He knew when He created Adam and Eve and gave them free will that they would choose to disobey and sin. But it was God’s plan from the beginning to send His Son Jesus to the cross to take the place that we deserved. For Jesus took the punishment and wrath we deserve because of our sin. But there will come a day when God’s dwelling will be with man. We who are born again are saved by the grace of God and we will spend all eternity in His kingdom by His grace. May we seek Him daily with our whole heart and remove from our lives anything that would hinder our relationship with Him.
