What does the future hold
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them; He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away." And the one who was seated on the throne said, "See, I am making all things new." Also, he said, "Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true."
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more deaths or mourning or crying or pain for the old order has passed of things has away He who seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new” Revelation 21:1-5
In the midst of the Covid-19 tomorrow is uncertain. Each day we see the death toll rising and new solutions proposed. We do not know if a vaccine is likely to work or how long the lockdown measures will stay in place.
But there is something we do know. We know how the story ends.
The Bible tells us that Jesus is coming back. God has not abandoned the world. He has a beautiful plan for His creation and His people
When Jesus returns, He will make all things new He will remove sin and it’s effects. Sickness and suffering will be no more. Panic, sorrow, and grief will be things of the past. This is better than any vaccine or government policy.
It is lasting and the perfect solution.
Best of all, we will be with our God: “His dwelling place is now among people (Rev 21:3) We were created to be with Him, and He will make that happen
In the death and resurrection of Jesus He has forgiven our sin and brought us near to Him. When Jesus returns, we will be near to God in a whole new way
In some ways we do not know what the future holds. We do not know when Covid-19 will end or what its full impact will be. Yet in these uncertain times Christians have certainty. Jesus has promised our future to us. Because of His love we will be with God in a world where life and beauty reigns – and this pandemic will just be a distant memory
You can have certainty of your future, today.
Praise God for that and ask Him to instill that certainty deep in your heart and mind.
This changes everything!
