For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him will not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
Yahweh Elohim, thank you for loving us so much that you sent your one and only Son, Jesus, to come down into this world as Messiah to become our Passover Lamb. You healed us of our sin-sickness and took away our guilt and shame. We long for the day when You return to rule as King forever. The earth also groans as a woman in childbirth for her own redemption (Romans 8:22). We see the signs in the earth, even tbe birthpangs as contractions with increasing earthquakes, fires, floods, plagues, war, and famine.
Lord you promised in Revelation 21:1-5 that one day we would see a new heaven and a new earth. We long to see the restoration of all things… the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. Then, once again the dwelling of God will be with people and You will live with us. HalleluYah, for the Bridegroom comes quickly to make all things new! Come Lord, Jesus, come!!
