crossIs. 65:17-19 “Look! I am creating new heavens and a new earth—so wonderful that no one will even think about the old ones anymore. Be glad; rejoice forever in my creation! And look! I will create Jerusalem as a place of happiness. Her people will be a source of joy. I will rejoice in Jerusalem and delight in my people. And the sound of weeping and crying will be heard no more.”

There are better days coming! The Lord has a plan for us that far surpasses anything we have ever known. He is creating a new heaven and a new earth. The process has already begun. When the time is right and the process is complete, it shall be put in place. This new heaven and earth will be so wonderful that every memory of this earth and life will be wiped from our memories.

In that day there will be so much joy that our praises will fill the new heaven and earth forever and ever. There will be nothing there that will ever make us sad or weary again. Happiness will be everywhere. Everyone there will be a delight to be around. Everyone will get along with everyone else. There will be no pecking order, no selfish ambitions, no self promotions, no using of anyone for personal gain.

In that day the Lord will take great delight in us. He will be able to walk freely amongst us because there will be no more sin in us. His presence will be seen and felt everywhere. There will be perpetual joy and happiness, no more weeping and crying will come from us. There will be nothing there that could ever cause us to be sorrowful or grievous of heart again.

What a wonderful place the Lord is preparing for us! He is working today to prepare us so we will be fit to dwell there. Don’t hinder the work of the Lord in you to change you and make you holy. He loves you so much and wants to make sure you don’t miss out on the place He is preparing for you. Let Him have his way with you.

Before and After the Honeymoon

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.
