Top ten Scriptures for me. Number 2.

Revelation 21:1-5

1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
I have actually a top five Bible chapter favorites, and this whole chapter tops that list. There are a plethora of reasons, here are just a few:
  1. This chapter tells us where believers will spend eternity, and it is not in heaven.
  2. This chapter tells us where God will spend eternity, and it is not in heaven.
  3. This chapter tells us where the streets are paved with gold and the gates are made of pearl, and it is not heaven’s.
  4. This chapter shows the only thing in existence today that will never be destroyed, and it is not heaven.
  5. This chapter shows a glimpse into a future where the sun is not required  to light the earth and all laws that govern the universe today are nullified.
  6. This chapter shows us a glimpse into the future where the oceans are not required.
  7. This chapter shows a God, in all his wonderful fullness, who gets to finally be with the people he created.
  8. This chapter shows a time when sickness is dead and death is gone.
  9. This is the chapter that shows a final list of all things that keep one from eternity with God.
  10. This is the chapter that solidifies the very hope every believer has in Christ… That He is Lord of all and will reign forever!
