December 29/Revelation 21

Perhaps if one were to describe this Chapter 21 in one word the word would be ‘Perfection’. I doubt that any of us has ever seen perfection in anything although we use the word quite often. How was your meal > perfect. How were the accommodations > perfect. Was there anything you would change > no it was perfect. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day! We rate things on a scale of 1-10 but our ten is never really perfect. It is never really without a flaw. Adam and Eve lived, saw and breathed perfection, no flaws until sin marred it all. And so now just like we had to be reborn the whole world will be reborn into perfection. When we die our imperfect bodies will be planted in the ground but when Jesus comes back we will be raised ….perfect! God accepts nothing less than perfection. That is why he sent us his perfect son, Jesus.

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT) — 9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

    When God set up Israel He had a chef priest whose symbol of office was an ephod with 12 precious stones. In revelation when the new Jerusalem descends it is based on a foundation of the same 12 precious stones now inscribed with the names of the apostles of the new covenant while the pearl gates are inscribed with the 12 tribes. The new Jerusalem shows a building on the old with the new and the promise that I Am will be your God and you will be my people.
