Bible Story:

Revelation 4:8-5:15

John’s exile to the Island of Patmos became much more than a prison sentence. While on the island, he experienced a vision about God and future events. His vision shows how God has always been, is now, and will always be. Not only is God eternal, He gives eternity to man.


New Creation

Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also making everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
