Rusty concludes the three part series on final things. Part 1 focussed on Final Judgment, and Part 2 focussed on Hell. Today, he looks forward to Heaven. Having a good ending is vital to a good story, and fortunately for the Christian, we can look forward to the best ending.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
