Judgment on sin and death

In the Apostle John’s vision of heaven, he says:

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live 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.” (Revelation 21:3–4)

Bring it on!!!

It’s a world we long for; life as it should be in the perfect presence of God forever. No sin, no death.

Yet, often we fail to think what is needed for heaven to be possible. No sin can exist in God’s presence, and so God’s judgment is just and needed.

Today in Isaiah 24 we look at God’s judgment. Judgment is a taboo word today. But I pray we will see God’s judgment is just and needed so that we can experience God’s perfect presence forever.

In Christ, Tory.
