Some Things to Look Forward To!
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
5 He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!"
Three things to expect when we are in God’s presence:
1. God will dwell among us.
-He did during the Exodus.
-He did when Jesus came.
-In heaven, it will be forever!
2. There will be no more sorrow.
-He will wipe every tear from your eye.
-There will be no more death.
-There will be no more pain.
3. Everything will be made new.
-This includes new bodies - made perfect, able to
do everything perfectly. Not bound by age or
Anybody here ready for that? All it takes is to trust Christ.
-Religion won’t do it.
-A good life won’t do it.
-All we can do is to trust what Christ did for us, and accept it for ourselves.
