New Jerusalem



New Jerusalem


Jerusalem seems to be always in the News and our prayer is that God’s chosen would have peace.


But, we know that peace can only come by knowing the Prince of Peace. The Holy Bible says that the people of Jerusalem are in bondage, but, the New Jerusalem which is in heaven above is free and all of God’s people are children of that Holy City.


 The Bible speaks of that heavenly Jerusalem as a precious jewel, clear as crystal, may we always seek that Holy City whose maker and builder is God. I am waiting for that day when I will walk in that city which will have the glory of God in her.


I will see a great wall surrounding that city which will be standing on twelve foundations on which are written the names of the twelve apostles and twelve mighty angels standing guard, at the twelve gates where also are written the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.


Yes, a city gleaming and clear as crystal, with gates of pearl, streets of precious gold and God the Father, and Christ Jesus His only begotten Son being in the midst, illuminating that city with the glory of their presence.


From that Holy Jerusalem we shall see the great river called the water of life, clear as crystal proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.


 For there shall be the tree of life yielding it’s fruit and leaves for the healing of the nations and we shall see the face of God, yes, what a day that will be when we all see Jesus and sing and shout the victory, praise God.


Scriptures taken from Galations 4 v 25, 26 & 31, Revelation chapters 21 & 22.


God is in Control


     Surely God is in control, we live in a world that seems to be out of control, but we have the Word of God, and we know what happens in the end, the Lord will make all things new, the old things will pass away.  He will make a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness will dwell.  “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away,” {Revelation 21 v 1}.


   Now we also look at Jerusalem and think also that it is out of control, and we remember Jesus, how he wept over Jerusalem.  We see the nations rising up against her, and our hearts go out to God’s precious, chosen people.  Now we are reminded by the Lord, to pray for God’s people in Psalms 122 v 6, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee.”


   Now, we have good news for the people of Israel, He has not forgotten them, for He is also going to make a new Jerusalem and it will be a shinning jewel.  “And I John saw the Holy city, new Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband,” { Revelation  21 v 2}.


So let us pray and support God’s chosen people, may they all come to know Jesus Christ their Lord and Saviour.  God bless Israel.
