Summary: A CITY WHERE THERE WON`T BE ANYMORE TEAR SHEDDING AND THE REASON WHY IS
Revelation 21:1-8 (KJV)
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
VERY BRIEFLY WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD AND THE GUIDIANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS
I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT
(A TEARLESS WORLD )
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
THE WRITER OF OUR TEXT IS APOSTLE JOHN WHO IS KNOWN AS THE BELOVED DICIPLE
JOHN HAS BEEN SENTENCE INTO EXILE ON A ISLAND CALL PATMOS
THE HOLY WRIT REVEALS TO US THAT HE WAS`NT THERE ALONE
IT ALSO REVEALS TO US THAT HE WAS IN THE SPIRIT ON THE LORD`S DAY
AND AIN`T IT GOOD NEWS TO KNOW THAT NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE AS BELIEVERS IN CHRIST
THAT GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US
JOHN HERE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
TESTIFIES TO WHAT HE HAS SEEN AND TO WHAT HE HAS HEARD
AND ALL THROUGH OUT THE BOOK OF REVELATION JOHN IS ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT SEEING SOMETHING AND HEARING A VOICE
IN THE TEXT HE SAYS I SAW A NEW HEAVEN
AND I HEARD A GREAT VOICE OUT OF HEAVEN
JOHN SAYS I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH
HE LETS US KNOW THAT THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH HAS PASS AWAY AND GOD WILL MAKE ALL THINGS KNEW
HE SAYS I SAW A HOLY CITY---THE NEW JERUSALEM COMING DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN
AND HE LOOK AND SAW A BLESS CITY
BECAUSE ANYTHING THAT GOD GIVES IS A BLESSING
HE ALSO SAYS IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL CITY PREPARED FOR A BRIDE ADORN FOR HER HUSBAND
AND HE HEARD A VOICE THAT SAID THE TABERNACLE OF GOD IS WITH MEN
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL JOHN HEARD
FOR HE SAYS AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THERE EYES
JOHN LETS US KNOW THAT THERE IS A TEARLESS WORLD COMING
A WORLD WHERE THERE WON`T BE ANYMORE CRYING
A WORLD THERE WON`T BE ANYMORE WEEPING
AND YOU DO KNOW IN THIS OLD SINFUL WORLD WE HAVE TO CRY SOMETIMES
YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
JOHN WAS AQUAINTED WITH CRYING
FOR JOHN FOUND HIMSELF CRYING ON MANY OCCASIONS
WHEN JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED JOHN WAS THERE AND HE WEPT
WHEN HIS BROTHER JAMES WAS BEHEADED BY HEROD ---JOHN WEPT
WHEN HE SAW THE OTHER APOSTLES WHO DIED BEFORE HE DID----JOHN WEPT
IN REVEALATION 5 WHEN HE THOUGHT THERE WAS NO ONE TO OPEN THE BOOK OF THE 7 SEALS ------JOHN WEPT
JOHN WAS WELL AQUAINTED WITH TEARS
BUT JOHN IS NOT THE ONLY ONE AQUAINTED WITH TEARS
BECAUSE ALL OF US IN HERE KNOWS SOMETHING ABOUT SHEDDING TEARS
BECAUSE IT DON`T TAKE LONG IN THIS WORLD TO BECOME AQUAINTED WITH SHEDDING TEARS
A BABY WHEN IT IS BORN COMES INTO THIS WORLD SHEDDING TEARS
YOU DON`T HAVE TO BE HERE LONG TO LEARN HOW TO SHED TEARS
IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD
YOU DON`T EVEN HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL TO LEARN HOW TO SHED TEARS
BECAUSE NOBODY HAS TO TEACH YOU HOW TO CRY-------IT COMES NATURALLY
BECAUSE SHEDDING TEARS IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE
BECAUSE IN ALL OF MY 40 PLUS YEARS
I`VE NEVER HEARD NOBODY CRYING IN SPANISH—GERMAN OR FRENCH
BECAUSE WHEN FOLKS CRY THEY JUST CRY
FOR THERE IS NO COLLEGE DEGREE THAT CAN EXEMPT YOU FROM SHEDDING TEARS
THERE IS NO AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT CAN EXEMPT YOU FROM SHEDDING TEARS
