New All Around
Revelation 21:1-8 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...
think about it.
How is the New Jerusalem described (21:2-3, 10-21)? What will be absent from the New Jerusalem (21:4)? What are you most looking forward to in the New Jerusalem?
Well this is week number 8 and thus our last week in Revelation. I have to say that I'm glad we took the time to work through this tough book right along with Dr. Kroll and the Back to the Bible radio program. I've learned a lot and enjoyed it. I hope that's the case for you too.
So John is describing the new heaven and new earth in these first verses of chapter 21. It sounds absolutely wonderful. The most exciting part for me was verse 3 where we are told "Behold the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people." I can't wait.
So how can we use this passage to motivate us in our relationship with the Lord now? Tami W.
