Oh, Lord God, to be let in on the vision of the throne room and of the new heaven and new earth! The imagery and splendor shine great hope into the darkness. Thank you for these words that brighten my reading of the final book of Scripture. Be glorified in them, Father. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, who sits on the judgment throne, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“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. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” (Revelation 21:1-2 ESV)
