Tag: God dwelling with His people
Scripture reading for December 27th: Zechariah 7-10, Revelation 21
Key Scriptures: Revelation 21:2-4 “And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 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. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be nor more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
As John continued to look and write, he saw a beautiful city, descending from heaven. This city looked like a bride adorned for her husband. A loud announcement from heaven stated that God would dwell with His people bringing eternal joy, comfort and peace. This would be the ultimate fulfillment of God’s desire and prophetic word to live with His people eternally!
Zechariah 8:7-8 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will save My people from the east country and from the west country, and I will bring them to dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And they shall be My people, and I will be their God, in faithfulness and in righteousness.”
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Thank You for the vision of the prophetic Word made sure by Your own faithfulness and righteousness! I await the joy of being in Your presence for ever! Amen!
