Revelation 21:3 – The Second Advent

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context: John, in his prophetic vision, is allowed to see the new Jerusalem where the “Lamb” will be the “lamp.”

Revelation 21:3 “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them as their God.’”

Observation: As I read this morning, I observe the similarity here to John 1:14.  The first advent anticipated the coming of Christ: “The word became flesh and dwelt among us.”  We are now in the second advent, anticipating the coming of Jesus when “He will dwell with (us).”

Application: I want to spend time today thinking about the second coming.  I need to focus more on the joy found in my future hope.

Are you living in anticipation of the second coming?
