    Jesus Will Return

    John had a vision from God of the end of time. After the Lamb—Jesus—opened the scroll, God judged the earth to destroy evil. John heard a large crowd of people praising God and rejoicing. John wrote about what he saw.

    John saw a new heaven and a new earth. The first heaven and the first earth was gone. He also saw the Holy City, a new Jerusalem, coming down from heaven. He heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Look! God will live with His people. They will be His people, and He will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will no longer exist. Sadness, crying, and pain will no longer exist.”

    One of the angels carried John to a great and high mountain. The angel showed John the Holy City. It was shining with God’s glory. The foundations of the city wall had every type of precious stone. The city street was made of pure gold, as clear as glass.

    John did not see a temple in the city because the Lord and the Lamb were the city’s temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it. The glory of God gives light to the city, and there is no darkness. The city is safe and clean—nothing unclean is in the city and no one will do wrong things in the city. Only those whose names are in the Lamb’s book of life will enter the city.

    The angel showed John the river of living water. It sparkled like crystal and flowed from God’s throne, down the middle of the wide city street. The tree of life was on both sides of the river, and it produced 12 kinds of fruit. God’s throne will be in the city. God’s servants will see His face, and they will worship Him. The Lord will reign forever and ever.

    Jesus said, “Listen, I am coming soon! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Jesus is the One who says that all of these things will happen. He is coming soon. “Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!”

    Christ Connection: Jesus promised to come back to earth soon. When Jesus returns, those who trust in Jesus will be with Him and enjoy Him forever. God will undo every bad thing caused by sin—no more death, no more pain, no more tears. Jesus is making all things new.
