Thursday 2nd September
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true."
All the pain of this fallen world will be left behind when we go to be with the Lord forever!
In this life there are many tears, but one day there will be no tears, no death, no mourning, no pain. Those things belong to this fallen world and are the fallout of mankind's sin. God will create a new unfallen heaven and earth the way things were meant to be, a place where God Himself will be dwelling among us.
I can't wait!
