REVELATION

PART 4 OF A 4 PART SERIES

REVELATION 21:1

FOCAL POINT: ALL THINGS NEW

INTRODUCTION:

THE AUTHOR OF REVELATION, THE APOSTLE JOHN, PENNED THIS REVELATION ABOUT A. D. 95. THIS OCCURRED WHILE IN EXILE ON THE ISLE OF PATMOS. THE APOSTLE ENCOURAGES BELIEVERS TO REMAIN STRONG IN THE FAITH AND NOT SUCCUMB TO THE EVERY PRESENT DANGER OF ROMAN EMPEROR WORSHIP. THE REVELATION ASSURES THAT A SHOWDOWN BETWEEN GOD AND SATAN IS IMMINENT. JOHN ASSURES BELIEVERS THEIR SPIRITUAL WELFARE IS SECURE ALTHOUGH DEATH MAY COME BECAUSE OF THEIR TESTIMONY. SATAN AND HIS EVIL HOST WILL BE BOUND FOREVER AND CHRIST WILL REIGN SUPREME WITH HIS CHURCH FOR ETERNITY. REF: REVELATION 1: 19

THE VARIOUS WORD MEANINGS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. THIS DOES NOT SPEAK TO A RENOVATION OR REFURBISHING. THIS SCRIPTURE FULFILLS ANCIENT PROPHECIES SUCH AS ISAIAH 65: 17, 66:22, 2 PETER 3:13 AND ROMANS 8: 18-21.

COMPARE THE WORD “NEW” IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5: 17 TO THE WORD NEW IN REVELATION 21: 1 YOU FIND THE EXACT MEANING!

THE PRESENT HEAVEN AND EARTH, INCLUDING THE SEA, WERE BURNED DURING THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT (REF: REVELATION 20: 11-13) WHY THE DESTRUCTION OF THE SEAS? THE BEAST AROSE FROM THE SEA (REVELATION 13: 1-4).

REVELATION 21 BEGINS WITH STRAIGHTFORWARD STATEMENTS SUCH AS NEW HEAVEN, NEW EARTH, AND NO MORE SEAS. UNBELIEVERS OF ALL THE AGES, DEMONS, SATAN, ALL FORCES OF EVIL ARE BOUND AND CAST INTO A LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY (REF. 19:20, 20:10, and 20:14-15) THIS TOO ALLUDES TO THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.

THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH FIND CONFIRMATION IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. READ PSALMS 102: 25-26.

THE EARTH AS YOU AND I KNOW IT WILL NOT LAST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE WORD. WE MAY NOT UNDERSTAND ALL THAT WAS WRITTEN IN THE REVELATION: WE DO KNOW IT IS ALL TRUE.

APPLICATION: THIS CONCLUDES A FOUR PART SERIES ON REVELATION. THE JUDGE OF THE ENTIRE WORLD (JESUS CHRIST) IS ON YOUR SIDE “IF” YOUR NAME CAN BE FOUND IN HIS BOOK OF LIFE. YOUR NAME WILL BE THERE “ONLY” IF YOU HAVE ACCEPTED HIM AS YOUR SAVIOR, LORD AND MASTER. THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
