The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let the whole world fear the LORD, and let everyone stand in awe of him. For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command.
(Sunrise at Big Bend National Park)
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.”
Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.”
Let anyone who is thirsty come.
Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.
He who is the faithful witness to all these things says,
“Yes, I am coming soon!”
Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
Revelation 22:17, 20
(Big Bend National Park)
have sent my angel
to give you this message for the churches.
I am both the source of David
and the heir to his throne.
I am the bright morning star.”
“And behold, I am coming quickly,
and My reward is with Me,
to give to everyone according to his work.
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End,
the First and the Last.”
(NASA Hubble telescope)
“Behold! I am coming quickly:
blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy
of this book.”
(Glacier Bay, Alaska)
…he showed me the holy city, Jerusalem,
descending out of heaven from God.
It shone with the glory of God and sparkled like a precious stone—
like jasper as clear as crystal.
The city wall was broad and high…
made of jasper,
and the city was pure gold, as clear as glass.
The twelve gates were made of pearls—
each gate from single pearl!
And the main street was pure gold,
as clear as glass.
Revelation 21:10-12, 18, 21
And the one sitting on the throne said,
“Look, I am making everything new!”
And then he said to me,
“Write this down,
for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”
And he also said,
“It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—
the Beginning and the End…”
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying,
“Look, God’s home is now among his people!
He will live with them,
and they will be his people.
God himself will be with them.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes,
and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain.
All these things are gone forever.”
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
for the old heaven and old earth had disappeared.
And the sea was also gone.
And I saw the holy city,
the new Jerusalem,
coming down from God out of heaven like a bride
beautifully dressed for her husband.
And then he told them,
“Go into the world
and preach the Good News to everyone.”
