Revelation 5:1-14

Revelation 5 tells of John’s vision of what the new heaven and new earth will be like.

When we are in Christ, we will worship Him for all of eternity because He is worthy and because He has made us His people.


New Creation: Review

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.
