Have A Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! A Picture Of Heaven!!!

Revelation 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Revelation 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
Revelation 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
Revelation 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Revelation 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Revelation 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
Revelation 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
Revelation 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
Revelation 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
Revelation 22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
Revelation 22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

God has promised a heaven on earth for those who believe. There will be no more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears; we who are saved we are his bride, the bride of Jesus.We will live in complete fulfillment with our Lord, Our Father,our Savior, as his people, in the heaven on earth city of Jerusalem.
Some things that would NOT be in heaven: no ambulances, no hospitals, no Kleenex. From today’s scripture we have to add a couple more things to the list of what will NOT be in heaven: First, verse 22 tells us there won’t be a Temple there. Why not? The Old Testament Temple, like its predecessor the Tabernacle, was the residence of God’s glory on earth. The Temple moved progressively more holy from the outside in, beginning with the outer Gentile courtyard, where God even allowed room for us as non-Jews;

Verse 23 tells us something else that won’t be present in heaven: lights. There won’t be any flashlights, nor ceiling lights, no flood lights, no candles. Why? Because, verse 23, the glory of God will be heaven’s all-sufficient light source. We won’t even need a sun or a moon! The Lamb, Jesus Christ, is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light. Revelation 22:5 says, “They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light.” God is our light!
Nothing impure shall enter in.
Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

No sin, and ONLY those written in the Lamb’s book of life. Anything that would defile or worketh an abomination will NOT be in Heaven. NO SIN ALOUD .
The next image is this amazing river full of the water of life, flowing from the throne of God himself. It reminds me of the fountain of living water we talked about last week. Water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit in the Bible. Here the Holy Spirit proceeds from God the Father and God the Son right into the midst of the heavenly city of Jerusalem.
The water feeds two trees of life in the new Jerusalem. This is the same tree Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat from, lest they live forever. Now there are two of them, a double blessing, and they are available to anyone. Their fruit, which is always in season, brings healing among the nations. The word for healing here might better be understood as “ongoing health,” since there is no more sickness in heaven. It is the word from which we get our English word “therapy.” God will maintain our good health throughout eternity.

Chapter 22, verse 3 says, “No longer will there be any curse.” The curse in the Garden of Eden has finally been lifted. All has been made right. The world and its people are back on track, and God is there with them, just as he was in the original Garden.
The curse is reversed! God says, “Behold, I make all things new!” Think about the parallels between the first and the last books of the Bible, between Genesis and Revelation. The Word in Life Study Bible summarizes them like this:

Are you Saved Today? Have you Trusted Jesus as Your Lord and Savior? If Not call upon him today. Heaven is Beautiful, no pain, no tears no sadness. However the reverse is awful; HELL, real flames, burning, no water, burning forever. No Party, complete Darnkness like never before.
Come to Jesus Today…Not denomination, not religion, no works, not who you know. A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST HE WHO PAID OUR SIN DEBT IN FULL FOR EACH ONE OF US ON CALVARY ON THE CROSS.
John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

SHALL WE GATHER AT THE RIVER
Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Yes, we’ll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.
On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will talk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day.
Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.
At the smiling of the river,
Mirror of the Savior’s face,
Saints, whom death will never sever,
Lift their songs of saving grace.
Soon we’ll reach the silver river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease;
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.

Love and Prayers
