Come for a delicious journey through God’s Word with a hungry Sydney Bible College student!
Do you hunger for something more filling than yumcha?
If so, read on ….
Revelation 21:1-4 (NIV 1984)
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
What do you look forward to?
I look forward to actually meeting God face-to-face and living with him in his city.
Imagine a place where there is no:
- Sickness, Cancer, Arthritis
- Mourning & Crying
Our current earth is only a shadow of things to come and we are only passing through. This is not our permanent home. There is something better to look forward to.
The problems of this world only serve as a reminder not to place our hope in our own abilities.
We cannot fix man-made Climate Change. Our world is dying from pollution. We haven’t cared for our world properly and face major environmental problems – erosion, deforestation, salinity & land degradation.
There has always been conflict in some part of our world as peoples war against each other. Today it is Syria & Afghanistan. Yesterday it was Iraq, Lebanon, Vietnam, Korea, Germany. There have been mass-shootings in the USA and Norway in the last few years. Recently, an innocent woman was brutally raped and murdered while walking home, shocking the city of Melbourne in Australia.
It is obvious that as humans we fail to control our world and find a solution to our countless social problems. There is crime, domestic violence, divorce, depression, homelessness & unemployment. We try to escape our problems by turning to alcohol and drugs. But this is no solution.
Wouldn’t you feel cheated if this is all the world had to offer you?
Jesus conquered death and offers us life with him. There is hope beyond this world. Our old world and its problems will disappear. It will be replaced with a beautiful new world.
