Revelation 21 - Heaven came down

Heaven came down

Rev 21:1 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.

Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Only eternal things last. The new heaven and earth are spiritual places for glorified beings. There will be no more sea; which represents restless troubled humanity. This was all in preparation for the coming of the Lord. Will this be the change at the second coming of Christ? Or shall it occur when all sin, death and hell are removed? It will occur before heaven comes down.

Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

New Jerusalem coming down from God, out of heaven. A song: "Heaven came down and glory filled my soul." We will be in our resurrection bodies. A beautiful gift from the Father, a Holy dwelling place for His Son and His bride, the redeemed people of God, saved by the blood of the Lamb. It will be beautiful, clothed in glory and purity, as a bride in her wedding dress, a delight and a blessed new start. No satan, so the marriage will last. No divorce from God's dwelling place. No dividing, but a place of joy and unity, all worshipping the Father and the Son, the bride of Christ will be received as the Son. Joint heirs of God of all his good blessings. The wealth of the Father will be shared with the children. We are the new creations in Christ Jesus; His Spirit within.

Rom 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Rom 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, andreceive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Rev 21:3 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.

A great voice, a voice out of heaven with a message, Behold, the tabernacle, the dwelling place of God is with men, glorified men. And he, Jesus, will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Who is your God? If it is a made up one, not the God of the Christ, you will not be in heaven.

Josh 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Rev 21:4 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.

Personal loving care, in the presence of the living God.

Psa 56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

Rev 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

No more tears, no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain. These are all common to the man under the curse of Adam. We are to be free of the curse, blessed forever, the former things are to be passed away. For those who suffer, the redeemed of God in mortal bodies, hold on, satan shall be removed; all these things shall be removed in your eternal home with God.
