Day 361, December 27 - Revelation 20

Click here for today's reading

3 And I heard a great voice, coming from the throne.

A Voice: See, the home of God is with His people.
             He will live among them;
            They will be His people,
            And God Himself will be with them.
4          The prophecies are fulfilled:
            He will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
           Death will be no more;
           Mourning no more, crying no more, pain no more,
           For the first things have gone away.


  1. 6 And 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 from the spring of the water of life without payment.

    I love that verse. Sorry, Holly. I had to take a little break from Revelation during the Christmas week. I wanted to ponder the innocence and wonder of Jesus' birth and Revelation was distracting me from that.

    I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas this year. I did. Miracles happened, as they always do. :-)

    1. Sharon, I totally understand. It's been hard for me to right now.
      Praise the Lord for miracles!!

  2. Revelation 21
    A New Heaven and a New Earth
    1 I saw a new heaven and a new earth, because the first heaven and earth had disappeared, and the sea was gone. 2 Then I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, dressed like a bride ready for her husband. 3 I heard a loud voice from the throne say, “God lives with humans! God will make his home with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There won’t be any more death. There won’t be any grief, crying, or pain, because the first things have disappeared.”
    5 The one sitting on the throne said, “I am making everything new.” He said, “Write this: ‘These words are faithful and true.’”

    7 Everyone who wins the victory will inherit these things. I will be their God, and they will be my children.

    27 Nothing unclean, no one who does anything detestable, and no liars will ever enter it. Only those whose names are written in the lamb’s Book of Life will enter it.
