Home Sweet Home

 

Presented by Pastor Randy Capote

Home is a special place! It is there we feel most safe as well as comforted and reassured, and that's just on the physical and emotional levels. So as Christ followers, we need to be reminded this earth is not our home, and we are simply pilgrims passing through this foreign land. Our home is a real place called heaven! We know the Lord is preparing our place there right now and regardless of which comes first, death or the rapture, we will be with Him there forever! Once there we will reclaim the paradise God originally intended for us before sin entered into the world. Truly, this is a place to look forward to! Join me as we investigate what the scriptures have to say about heaven from Revelation 21:1-7.

(1)Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. (2)And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. (3)And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, (4)and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.’

(5)And He who sits on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’ And He said, ‘Write, for these words are faithful and true.’ (6)Then He said to me, ‘It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. (7)’He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.’
