This week’s Pastor to Person is written by Pastor Franklin Garcia.
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. Revelation 21:3
The holy city, the new Jerusalem, will come to earth, God will pitch his tent and dwell among his people. His people will have access to him and there will be no more pain, no more tears, and no more death. God will make everything new. He will be with us. His new creation will be free from pain and sorrow. The first state (world) was corrupted by sin, so the eternal state will be without sin. God will make all things new and His presence will fill the earth with peace, joy. There will be no more worry or concern for our health and life, a perfect state, because the former world would have passed away.
Now, this is an assurance from God Himself. He is allowing us to see what’s coming ahead. God is putting His signature on this vision. These things already took place in His eyes, but these promises, and blessings are guaranteed to those who overcome the challenges of this world. This is why we should continue to overcome the challenges of this world, because God guarantees us a paradise, a new world without trouble and pain, a paradise where His presence will be among us. He guarantees all these blessings to the overcomers.
