No Rough Waters

Revelation 21:1-4
"Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

We are headed for a time of no sea, no rough waters, in the new heaven and earth. This might concern you if you like boating or fishing, but the point is, no more chaos and fear. The Spirit will have finished His restoring work. You will sit at rest under your own vine and fig tree, at the Lord’s table to feast.

The Spirit hovers over us, even now. Without His brooding work, we are not united with Christ, we cannot commune with Him. Let us consider the cross and empty tomb, the work of Christ for us, taking away our guilt and disorder and restoring us to life in Himself.
