Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
The Apostle John had heard YESHUA’S promise to prepare a place for His followers (John 14:1-6).
Then later in Revelation, Chapter 21, we see GOD giving John a vision of that place; check it out. John saw the new Jerusalem come down out of Heaven. It was beyond human description, but he did his best to put this heavenly vision into our language.
John saw the brilliance of GOD’S glory shining from the structure. The gates were made of pearls and the streets were made of gold. The foundation was made of precious stones! The 1400-mile (approximately), cube-shaped city was designed by the LORD as a place for Himself and believers to live there in perfect intimacy. In it was GOD’S throne and the throne of the Lamb (YESHUA)!
There will be no more pain, tears, heartaches or death; and our new resurrected bodies will never grow tired or sick!
Then I, John, saw the Holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
As believers, when life becomes burdensome, we can focus on our glorious heavenly future where we will never again experience trouble or pain! It will be just joy and peace with our Savior forever!
Love & Blessings,
