Do you ever wonder how Christians will spend eternity? John answers that question when he reveals what is known as the “eternal state”, or the eternal destiny of believers. And the picture he paints is one of such peace, joy, and love, that I can’t help but cry, “Maranatha!” “Come Lord Jesus!” John tells us that the world we know, with all of its filth and pollution, will be burned away by God, creating a new heaven and earth. And on this new earth, we will live in the glorious city of the new Jerusalem. It will be a city with a foundation of precious stones, gates of giant pearls, and streets of pure gold. Where never again will we experience night. Because the spectacular Shekinah glory of God will be illuminating every inch! And there we’ll dwell with the Father and the Son forever, serving and glorifying Him in all we do.
