Revelation 21:1-3 "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them."
Personal note: A few days ago my dad passed away and is now in the presence of the Lord. For 56 of his 73 total years he walked the Christian walk and his ever-increasing home-sickness for heaven remains for me one of my fondest memories. His desire was to be with His Lord and Savior. Over the next several days I would like to present a series of posts that speak on the Bible's teaching on Heaven, particularly the last two chapters of Revelation. It is hoped that these posts provide comfort, clarity and an eternal perspective for readers. For anyone who knew my dad, his eternal perspective on things was refreshing and welcome in an age so preoccupied with things and self.
