The New Jerusalem to Come

Artist Unknown


Are you ever troubled by television news reports, printed perils in daily newspapers and other disturbing news in our world today? Living in a fallen world, we may find ourselves astonished at some of the occurrences around us. Perhaps we even surprise ourselves with our own attitudes and actions.


The Lord’s day is coming.


The Old Testament prophet Isaiah foretold a blessed time to come, when the Lord will set all things right. He will unveil a brand-new Heaven and earth, when He brings His long-awaited Kingdom.


"Behold, I will create
new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind.

But be glad and rejoice forever
in what I will create,
for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
and its people a joy.

I will rejoice over Jerusalem
and take delight in my people;
the sound of weeping and of crying
will be heard in it no more.”

(Isaiah 65:17-19, NIV)


What hope these words can bring to us! May we eagerly await His coming.


Will you pray with me?


Holy One,

We look with longing

For Your appearance.

In troubled times,

We await Your advent.

Call human hearts to Yours.

Empower us

To share Your good news.

Make us ready

For Your coming

For Your glory.

Amen.
