On episode 128 of the Adorned Podcast, we discuss how God makes all things new and the book of Revelation. The Bible concludes with a vision God gives to John about the second coming of Jesus and the new creation. God shows John many things about what is going to happen in the future. He shows him that there is coming judgement for those who do not follow Jesus and coming new creation for those who do. He urges believers to stay strong. And ultimately he reminds all of us that death will be defeated once and for all and that in this new creation there will be no more sadness, no more sorrow, and no more sin. Until then we are left in the already and the not yet but longing for God’s promise of making all things new. This is a good story. This is God’s story.
“The plain things are the main things and the main things are the plain things.” -Allister Begg
““John’s primary concern is not the how and the when, but the Who and the why.” -Matt Chandler
“God will triumph.” -The Drama of Scripture
“The New Testament ends where the Old Testament ended looking forward waiting for the final fulfillment of the promises of God. Jesus reassures his people “yes I am coming soon” and if we understand of the wonder of what is in store for us we will reply just like the end of revelation “amen, come Lord Jesus.”” -Vaughn Roberts
