All Things Made New

March 4, 2016

Revelation 21:1-8

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

The last two chapters of Revelation floored me this morning. There is so much depth, glory and treasure here. It was very difficult to narrow it down to these 8 verses.

My encouragement is that you will tenderly seek God for understanding, and read through these chapters. They will richly bless you, encourage you and excite you.

Let me pull out 8 points that really jumped out at me. They are for the most part self-explanatory.

  • There will be a new heaven and a new earth.
    • Remember when Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2) ?
  • The earth will pass away.
    • You ever hear any of the global climate worries and arguments? It is already in motion.
  • No pain ever again. Physical, emotional, mental and everything in between.
    • This is one verse that should wipe away the argument that surfaces from some unbelievers that believe we are living in heaven. If a glance at the news doesn’t do it.
  • “These words are true and faithful.”
    • The bible teaches, let God be true and every man a liar (Romans 3:4).
  • “I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End” says God.
    • No other false god can claim that. No religion has a god or leader that can claim that.
  • “I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.”
    • Is that a promise or what!? Men pray, beg and plead God to give a burning desire and thirst to know Him more and more every day!
  • “He who overcomes shall inherit all things.”
    • We all have personal weaknesses, sin and struggles that we need the grace of God to overcome. Staying anchored in God’s Word so we are not led astray to drift back into the ways and mindset of the world. Or take that first step to repent and turn to Christ.
    • All things are promised. A-L-L T-H-I-N-G-S. Wrap your mind around that one.
  • “I will be his God and he shall My son.”
    • The God who created the entire universe says this for you and me.

 

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
