I Know I Will See the Savior!
A New Earth – Part 2
Scripture Reading: Revelation 21:1-4
Key Verse: 2 Peter 3:13
But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.
God had made it clear to the apostle that this earth was not going to last into eternity. Like our lives, God’s creation had been so marred by sin that a new creation was called for. John wrote down all he was privileged to see during his vision of the end times. He saw, and thus confirmed, a new heaven and a new earth set in place.
Another exciting part of John’s vision in the book of Revelation was the fact that God, Himself, will dwell on this new earth. This eternal paradise will be fit for God and all who trusted in His Son Jesus Christ. All those who were “overcomers” of the stress and temptations of the old earth, will enjoy a new earth to roam forever!
I believe there will be many eternal dwellings for us to enjoy, but the greatest dwelling will be the Holy City, the New Jerusalem. Its brilliance is without compare. It will be a gated community like we have never seen, nor could imagine. This gated city will always be open to all the inhabitants of the new earth. Jesus our Savior will dwell in this Holy City, providing the only light needed. The glory of God and Jesus will shine bright and they will be the only temple needed for worshippers!
Do you know what I know? I hope so! I needed a Savior. I couldn’t earn the Savior, nor could I ignore Him! I know I received Him, and I will see Him someday, face to face! Join me, will you?
Father, all praise and glory go to you forever & ever. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
