Life

My Youth of Yesterday

Empty now…this bench we knew,

The time and place when we were young.

So long ago…these memories,

Of love and youth and having fun..

 

Wrinkled faces passing by,

Oh if they could see.

Warm summer days of long ago,

The days of you and me.

 

So true you were…my friend for years,

Always standing near.

What will I do when you are gone,

And we shall talk no more.

 

Stay with me…a little while,

Before you go away.

Let me taste the wine again,

My youth of yesterday.

A New Heaven and a New Earth

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. (Revelation 21:1 NKJV)

This passage of scripture describes an entire transformation of everything we know and think we know. A study of the scriptures concerning heaven is an enlightening undertaking. It will separate your concepts from God’s reality. Consider it.

The last two chapters of the Bible describe this new heaven and earth. If you wonder how the story ends, read slowly these two chapters and ask God to help you understand. The last chapter of a book is usually followed by “The End”, but the last chapter of the Holy Bible is followed by “The Beginning”.

There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:5 NKJV)
