Revelation 21:4 Changes coming…

Continuing our study of Revelation chapter 21.

Revelation 21:4  ‘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.’

Life holds its fair share of tragedies and these words are a soothing balm to those who have held on and endured. The world will not remain the same and the cruelties of life are not our destiny. The curse that has cast such a deep shadow upon this world, caused by the sin of man, will pass away and the blessing of redemption will shine its goodness upon the righteous in Christ Jesus for all eternity. 

Revelation 21:5  ‘He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new! Then He said, “Write this down for these words are trustworthy and true.” 

Politicians queue up to convince us that they will usher in a new plan or programme which will be guaranteed to change everything. Nevertheless, everything seems to keep on rolling along as before, despite their crafted words, 

The Lord God Almighty, seated on the throne, declares that great and wondrous changes are coming, when Christ Jesus establishes his kingdom on this earth. And this is guaranteed. God has spoken and his words are trustworthy and true!

Thank you…

  • Revelation 21:22 The light of Jerusalem
    Jerusalem will be the centre of the world and the nations will tithe their wealth to Jesus. Previously, the kings of the earth have rebelled against Christ Jesus and Jerusalem but now they pay homage.
  • Revelation 21:9 ‘From a mountain…’
    This describes the city as having twelve visible foundations, and this suggests it is a stepped pyramid construction. The city would have twelve levels, decreasing in size, each one built on its own foundation, ascending to form a pyramid with the top level being the apex of the city. 
  • Revelation 21:6 He who is thirsty
    The goods of this world will crumble in our hands, swept away by the latest flood or fire, but the riches of God’s kingdom will stand forever. 
  • Revelation 21:4 Changes coming…
    Life holds its fair share of tragedies and these words are a soothing balm to those who have held on and endured. The world will not remain the same and the cruelties of life are not our destiny. The curse that has cast such a deep shadow upon this world, caused by the sin of man, will pass away and the blessing of redemption will shine its goodness upon the righteous in Christ Jesus for all eternity. 
  • Revelation 21:3 The New Jerusalem
    We discussed yesterday that God is bringing us all together, like the proud father that He is. Many of us will be centred at the New Jerusalem and many will live away but yet return on frequent pilgrimages to our new home city. For many of us, our present time is one of suffering and tribulation but this time will pass away and we will enter into an eternity of blessing. And it will have been so worth remaining faithful!
