Revelation 21:5 - I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW!

Revelation 21:5 (KJV) And he that sat upon 
the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. 
And he said unto me, Write: for these words are 
true and faithful.  


God is the Creator. The Bible begins with 
the majestic story of his creation of the 
universe, and it concludes with his creation of a new 
heaven and a new earth. This is a tremendous hope 
and encouragement for the believer. When we are 
with God, with our sins forgiven and our future 
secure, we will be like Christ. We will be made 
perfect like him. [Life Application SB] 


   All the treasures of the universe will be 
open to the study of God's redeemed. Unfettered 
by mortality, they wing their tireless flight 
to worlds afar - worlds that thrilled with 
sorrow at the spectacle of human woe and rang with 
songs of gladness at the tidings of a ransomed 
soul. With unutterable delight the children of 
earth enter into the joy and the wisdom of 
unfallen beings. They share the treasures of 
knowledge and understanding gained through ages upon 
ages in contemplation of God's handiwork. With 
undimmed vision they gaze upon the glory of creation 
- suns and stars and systems, all in their 
appointed order circling the throne of Deity. Upon all 
things, from the least to the greatest, the 
Creator's name is written, and in all are the riches 
of His power displayed. 
   And the years of eternity, as they roll, 
will bring richer and still more glorious 
revelations of God and of Christ. As knowledge is 
progressive, so will love, reverence, and happiness 
increase. The more men learn of God, the greater will 
be their admiration of His character. As Jesus 
opens before them the riches of redemption and the 
amazing achievements in the great controversy with 
Satan, the hearts of the ransomed thrill with more 
fervent devotion, and with more rapturous joy they 
sweep the harps of gold; and ten thousand times 
ten thousand and thousands of thousands of 
voices unite to swell the mighty chorus of praise. 
   And every creature which is in heaven, 
and on the earth, and under the earth, and such 
as are in the sea, and all that are in them, 
heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, 
and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the 
throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 
Revelation 5:13. 
   The great controversy is ended. Sin and 
sinners are no more. The entire universe is clean. 
One pulse of harmony and gladness beats through 
the vast creation. From Him who created all, 
flow life and light and gladness, throughout the 
realms of illimitable space. From the minutest atom 
to the greatest world, all things, animate and 
inanimate, in their unshadowed beauty and perfect joy, 
declare that God is love. Mar373 


   I am making everything new! This is the 
opposite of what is always happening in your world of 
death and decay. Every day that you live means one 
less day remaining in your lifespan on this 
earth. Actually, this is very good news for My 
followers. At the end of each day, you can tell 
yourself: "I'm one step closer to heaven. 
   The world is in such a desperately fallen 
condition that there is only one remedy for it: making 
everything new. So do not be discouraged when your 
efforts to improve matters are unsuccessful. All 
things - including your efforts - are tainted by 
the Fall. Although I want you to endeavor to do 
your best, in dependence on Me, your world needs 
much more than a tune-up or an overhaul. It needs 
to be made completely new! And this is 
absolutely guaranteed to happen at the end of time, for 
My words are trustworthy and true.  
   You have good reason to rejoice, beloved, 
because I will make everything - including you - new 
and gloriously perfect! (Rev. 21:5; Phi. 1:21; 
Rom. 8:22-23) [Jesus Always by Sarah Young] 


God Is Preparing Us For That Day

   My favorite movie, ANNE OF Green Gables, 
has a great line: Tomorrow is fresh with no 
mistakes in it! Sometimes I share that with my 
students at the beginning of a new semester. Its a 
great feeling to start with a clean slate.  
   Making us new is what Jesus is all about. 
This is the theme of the Christian story - 
redemption. Rising from ashes. Over and over again. From 
His perspective, it doesnt matter what 
happened in the past year, what mistakes we made or 
problems we faced. Those things dont define us in 
His eyes. What matters is the new thing Hes 
doing today.  
   Im sure youve seen the caricatures 
of the old and new year. The year that is 
ending is always pictured as an old man, stooped, 
haggard, and tired. On his way out. And the new year 
comes in like a perfect, shiny baby, with light in 
his eyes. Its a marvelous metaphor for how 
Jesus makes us new. He takes the tired, the worn 
out, the hopeless and defeated, and He breathes 
new life into us. New strength, new energy, new 
hope. New life.  
   Jesus came to give us life to the 
fullest. That starts the moment we accept Him and 
begin to share His perspective. Hes not looking 
for perfection. Hes looking for someone to 
grow in Him, becoming more like Him, moment by 
moment, year by passing year. by Gwen Ford 
   Faith Step: Write down and commit to 
Jesus three areas in which youd like to grow. 
Ask Him to make them new. [Mornings With Jesus 
2020 Devotional by Guideposts and Zondervan] 


2 Corinthians 5:17 - New Life in Christ.


Isaiah 43:18, 19 - Serendipity and Expecting 
the Unexpected. 



If anyone has a paraphrase, commentary or 
testimony on this passage of Scripture, either 
personal or otherwise, I would be interested in 
hearing from you.  Thanks in advance and let's keep 
uplifting Jesus that all might be drawn to Him. Fred
