Text: Revelation 21 (Zephaniah 2-3)
One of the great realities of our world is that it is fallen, broken and infected by imperfection. Another reality is that it is only temporary. The same is true of heaven above.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. (Revelation 21:1)
When Jesus returns and the end of the age comes, God will destroy the earth and heaven as they currently exist and re-create them. Both earth and heaven will be new and fresh, clean and perfect. There will be a new start. And we, the redeemed will receive a new home. Think of it – a reality where all the sources and fruits of sin will be no more. No sorrow, no tears, no mourning, no pain and no death. Instead, there will be only goodness, love and life. It will be glorious, beautiful and forever. This is the future the Lord has prepared for those who are in Christ Jesus. I can’t wait!
in Him, Mike
