Day Five – Come, Lord Jesus

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Revelation 21:1-5 - “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. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 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. ‘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.” 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.”

Revelation 22:20-21 - “He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.

God’s words are trustworthy and true.  He has promised that He will make a new heaven and a new earth, where God’s dwelling place will be among His people.  And this old order - of suffering, death, mourning and crying - will pass away.

Today, let’s trust God’s promises once again.  Let’s pray according to Revelation 22:20-21:

  • Let’s say together with the our God - “Yes, come, Lord Jesus.”
  • Let’s pray that the grace of the Lord Jesus will be with God’s people - our church and churches, and the churches throughout the world, as we yearn for, hope for, and wait for His coming.
