THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
(Thanks to Cuz Wanda for this one.)
A police officer pulled an 83 year-old lady over.
He said, "Ma'am, you were speeding."
She said, "Yes, young man. I want to get there before.....
I forget where I'm going!"
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.
Heaven, the "New Jerusalem," is a place "God is with men!" (vs 3)
He shall dwell WITH them whom He has saved by His mercy and grace!
Heaven is a place where there is "no more sea." (vs 1)
There is no more separation between men.
There is no more separation between men and God.
Heaven is a place where there is no more "sorrow." (vs 4)
There's no more death, no more crying, no more pain; because,
there's no more sin!
Heaven is prepared by Him Who is the "beginning and the end" of time.
Time, the present limitation of men's days and activities, will exist no more.
Life shall be eternal, everlasting!
The "fountain of the water of life" flows "freely!"
Heaven is a place where we'll see God on His throne;
we'll worship at His feet;
we'll sing a "new song" - the song of His Holy redemption!
Christian, don't forget where you are going!
The next time the devil reminds you of your present trouble,
remind Him of your destination!
