Revelation 21:3-4 – 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Some of you who know me know that in 2004 I was diagnosed with a terminal disease. God has been good, as you can tell because in 2017 I am writing this post. I am often told by people just believe God and you will be healed. He wants you healed. Really? Then why am I still sick. I will tell you. SIN. That’s right, you read it correctly. You see, until Adam sinned, there was no sickness, no pain, no evil. Life was just perfect. Then, he sinned and a curse was put upon ALL men. The curse is called death. There is a lot of other things that happened that day as well. That will show up in some other post. Revelation 21 however, gives me hope. There is coming a day when there will be no more sickness or death or pain or any other thing that will bring suffering into the life of the believer. We will be free indeed. Free from all the things that the flesh can not protect us from. On that grand and glorious day, ALL tears will be gone forever. All death and sickness, gone for ever. All hatred and evil, gone for ever. Until then, we will keep on holding on to this great promise. If you know someone today who is hurting, don’t try to convince them that God promises that things will get better, at least not in this life. Jesus suffered pain, and hurt and betrayal, and even death. What sin did he commit? NONE. Instead, He paid the price for everyone else’ sin. Look up my fellow believer, your redemption draweth nigh.
