The 6-week period of Lent leads up to Easter and is a time for believers to really take in all Jesus did for us through his death and resurrection. This Lent, we are preparing by digging deep into Jesus’ character through the pages of the Bible. Our daily Bible readings will go from Genesis to Revelation searching for Jesus and who he is. Our study uses the SOAP method of Bible study to seek an application for each reading (not sure what this is? Check out the What’s SOAP? tab). We have provided an example SOAP note below today’s reading. Join in this study by completing the daily readings and journaling using SOAP and you are welcome to use the Comments section at the bottom of our homepage to share or ask questions.
Jesus is the Omega (end).
Revelation 21:1-7 – 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. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘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.” 5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
A Whole New World | Kathy Page
As believers, we have this blessed hope and promise of an eternity in the Presence of God. Imagine a gathering of all of God’s people. No jealousy. No competition. No division. We will be perfect. Sinless. And, imagine seeing God. Finally, to gaze in the face of our Father. To feel the Father’s gaze upon us. Neither will ever cease. This is His promise to us. This is our eternal inheritance. This whole new world. We wait in expectant faith!!!
Father, we praise You that it was Jesus whose death and resurrection defeated the final foe and secured for us eternity with you. We long for the day you resurrect our bodies and restore this world. AMEN even so Lord Jesus, quickly come!
