The Half Has Not Been Told

“See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.” – Isaiah 65:17.

Please read Revelation 21:1-5. (The link will open in a new window).

With his ship at anchor in Boston harbor after a two-year absence, Richard Henry Dana should have been elated. A year before, the thought of being home drove him wild with excitement. He couldn’t account for the change. “But now that I was actually there, and in sight of home, the emotions which I had so long anticipated feeling I did not find, and in their place was a state of very nearly entire apathy.”

In this life realization often fails to deliver what expectation advertises. In the next, God guarantees an experience whose meaning deepens with each new discovery, whose significance grows with each new revelation, whose dimensions expand with every explanation. He promises an immortality as superior to forgiven mortality as grains of gold to sand.
