Beyond the Grave

28 Nov

God’s WordRevelation 21:1-27  (The Message)

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

Look around you at the deterioration of the world—of mankind, of society!  cemetaryThis downward spiral began in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve and their choice to ignore My Word.  That act set into motion the direction all of mankind would travel.  The natural world is destined to only last so long.  But take heart, whosoever will may come to Me for rescue from it all.  Yes, this world and the heavens around you will all disappear and I will create all things new.  The inhabitants of My new order will be those who have accepted My loving forgiveness purchased at the cost of Jesus blood of sacrifice.

Consider the “religions” of the world.  You are free to embrace whichever you so choose.  But not all will turn out the way you hope.  There cannot by many truths.  Only one died for your forgiveness.  Only one died by crucifixion and rose to life.  Jesus died so that you might live in My new order—beyond the grave.  As you accept Him I accept you and write your name in My book of eternal life.  This is not exclusive—ALL are invited and welcome.

In My new order, beyond the grave, there will be no death, no tears, and no pain.  These are left behind when you step into My glory—My forever home of heaven.  I long for every human to join me here.  That is why I provided you with the Bible—so you know the Way to get here.  I have also commissioned those who believe in Christ to share His love so that everyone gets a chance to accept My invitation to eternal life.  Beyond the grave, My faithful ambassadors will be reunited in My heaven with all those they shared My message of salvation. So live as pilgrims on journey to your eternal home.

God’s Question: How faithful are you as My ambassador?

God’s Promise: In My heaven is NO night.

My Prayer to God:

I Praise You for the wonderful promise of heaven.

I am Sorry I get so involved with earthly things.

Thank You for Your Word that draws me back to You.

Please Help Me so live as Your witness of better times to come.
