“The Arrival Continues” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Rev. 21:1-5    And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. [2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. [3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. [4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. [5] And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

Rev. 22:17   And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

1.   Those who hear

2.   Those who are thirsty

3.   Those who will come

Rev. 22:1-5  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. [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. [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: [4] And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. [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.

  • Corner stones (Gems)
  • Throne central attraction
  • Streets Gold
  • No Night  God is Light
  • River Flowing Out of Throne

1. Perfect Place  – Completed Home 

2. No more curse –  Completed  Salvation

3. Throne in their midst – Trusting  Administration

The questions continue to come in. Will we eat? Will we know each other? Do people in Heaven know whats going on down here? Can we communicate with the dead?  How old will I be? Will there be animals in Heaven?

Next week we’ll  attend the Award Ceremonies in Heaven
