Isaiah 25:7-8 NIV
On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.
What a time it will be when all the above prophesies are fulfilled. Christ, of course, has swallowed up death forever and those who believe in his atonement for sins and live for him will beat death eventually. Their fleshly bodies may perish, but their spirit and soul will live forever with their Savior and Lord in eternity.
John, the Apostle, writes in the book of Revelation........
Revelation 21:3-4 NIV
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
The old order of things will pass away sometime in the near future. Are you prepared for the new? Blessed are you if you are; if you are not, this is the time for things to change in your life. Jesus is waiting for you.
