Final Adornment



Final Adornment. We are creatures of time, and therefore expend most of our energies on our daily life. Heaven remains pretty much a mystery to us all; a lot of conjecture has been made as to what heaven will really be like. I prefer to stay with the things God has revealed to us in His Word.

1 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, "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. 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 him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Final Adornment


We are creatures of time, and therefore expend most of our energies on our daily life. In this devotion, however, we will consider our final spiritual adornment.



Heaven remains pretty much a mystery to us all; a lot of conjecture has been made as to what heaven will really be like. I prefer to stay with the things God has revealed to us in His Word. Christ told us in John 14:2 (KJV) In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.



What does John tell us in verses 1 and 2 shown above?



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.



We (Christians) are the bride of Christ; He is now preparing a new heaven and a new earth especially for His bride! Though we don't know the details, we know that it will be more beautiful and more glorious than anything we have ever seen. We know that is true, because it will not be soiled by the sin of mankind.



Listen to the words of the voice John heard.



"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."



Who is this God who is doing such a glorious thing for His people?



He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.



Every time I read these passages, all the things of this earth just fade away into nothingness. The time will come when everything we are meant to do in this life will be done. That will come either at our death, or at the coming of the Lord for His people.



When Christ comes back for His church, God will say, "It is done! The old order of things has passed away." Christ's final adornment will be finished; all believers will be brought home to live with Christ forever.



Ponder that today as you go about your daily tasks. Never let these thoughts be far from you. This world is not our home, we are just passing through! Soon we, as God's children will complete Christ's final adornment!
