The unknown causes many to look to this world for something that will give them assurance for the future.
We are entering a new year aware that the Word of God is coming to pass quickly. He is preparing us for our new home in Heaven with the Father. Thereafter, God will create a new city on a new Earth in which those who have believed in His Son, the Messiah, will live with Him forever. That city will be the new Jerusalem.
“Abba, Father, we are expecting Your Son’s return. You may send Him for us soon. The Holy Spirit is preparing us, Your bride, to live with You forever.
“Yeshua, the very Earth groans for You! We, Your people, wait for You to make everything new in a home that You have made for us, in which You, God, will be with us in Jerusalem.”
Revelation 21:1-5 (NLT): Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”
