Revelation 21-22~ Day 120- It is done!

Even though John tried, the new heaven and the new earth are so incredible, they are hard to describe!!  His use of symbolism, to be honest, didn't give me a good visual picture to imagine, but it gave me some hard facts to rest on!
  • The symbolism of the Holy City being a perfect square, obviously doesn't mean we will be living in a box for the rest of eternity, rather the focus is on the perfection!!  We, the bride, the Holy City, will be perfect!!
  • The jewels symbolizing "purity" and "durability", according to my footnote, will last forever.  That means we will last forever
  • "The old order of things has passed away" (21:4b).  That one is mind blowing to me!!  All we understand of our world now, for example in science (cause and effect, gravity, permeability), will pass away. Life will have a new order!  I giggle thinking about how Jesus appeared in the room with the disciples when the doors were locked (John 20:19-20).  Heaven is going to be beyond what Hollywood could imagine!! 
  • "No longer will there by any curse." (22:3)  I love how the end of the book ties with the beginning of the Old Testament.  The cruse on the earth and man, is Genesis 3 will be gone!  Can you imagine a life with no curse?!  It's hard to, but it sure is fun trying!!!

I hope you had fun reading the whole New Testament in four months!  What a great way to start 2019!  God bless you as the year goes on.  I hope you continue reading the Bible in some way; maybe venture into the Old Testament.

If you are up for the challenge of the New again, I am starting over again May 1st!!!🤓
