Revelation 21:4 - A Vision of Heaven.

Revelation 21:4 (NLT) He[God] 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.  


   Have you ever tried to explain something 
to someone and couldn't quite find the words? 
Have you ever tried to describe something complex 
to a child? For God to describe heaven to us in 
a way we could understand would be like trying 
to describe the beauty of Hawaii to a 
three-month-old child. We're not able to comprehend, in our 
finite human understanding, all the infinite 
glories of heaven. 
   In fact, the apostle Paul, who had the 
unique experience of dying and actually going to 
heaven, said that he heard things so astounding that 
they couldn't be told (see 2 Corinthians 12:2-4). 
Paul was essentially saying that he couldn't put 
his experience into words. 
   Heaven is beyond our comprehension. While 
there aren't many verses in the Bible that tell us 
about it, Scripture does tell us a few things. It 
says that in heaven there will be no night. There 
will be no fear. There will be no suffering or 
death. All of the pain and disabilities that we 
face in this life will be gone in heaven. 
   But the glory of heaven is even more than 
having new bodies- and even more than the absence 
of darkness and sorrow and pain and death. The 
fact that Jesus Christ will be there is better 
than all the beauty and all the answers to all 
our questions. 
   Your eyes will see the king in his beauty 
and view a land that stretches afar. (Isaiah 
33:17, NIV) [Every Day with Jesus by Greg Laurie] 


In Spite of Sickness
   God can work in spite of sickness. He 
still answers prayer and heals people today, and 
He still does miracles. In sickness and in 
hardships, He can work in a person's life. Even if a 
person still has the sickness or problem, God can 
work in spite of it and give them a special 
strength. And no matter what happens to our physical 
bodies here on earth, we have the promise of heaven 
and ultimate healing in heaven. At that time, 
God says He will wipe away all our tears. There 
will be no more death, sorrows, crying, or pain 
(see Revelation 21:4). 
   What a glorious promise! There is 
more--so much more!--beyond this life on earth. 
Whatever our limitations, whatever our problems, God 
promises us that we will one day receive a new body 
that won't have the shortcomings we experience 
   And God can also use sickness to bring a 
person to Himself, can't He? I know of many people 
who have come to the Lord in the hospital or 
when facing death. Suddenly they reevaluate their 
lives. They wonder, What am I living for? What's 
really important in my life? What's going to happen 
to me when I die? And they begin to think about 
   As the psalmist said, "Before I was 
afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word" 
(Psalm 119:67). God can work in spite of sickness, 
and He can work through sickness. Nothing is 
impossible for Him. [Every Day with Jesus by Greg 


Living Under the Curse
   It is true that disease flows from the 
curse God pronounced on us after Adam's rebellion. 
It is also true that Jesus came to reverse this 
curse. But does this mean Christians shouldn't have 
to put up with cancer, Down syndrome, Lyme 
disease or Alzheimer's? We'd like to think that 
since Jesus came to take up our diseases, there 
should be healing for everything from migraines to 
menopausal sweats. But that's akin to saying: "There's 
an oak in every acorn - so take this acorn and 
start sawing planks for picnic tables." Or it's 
like saying, "Congress just passed a Clean Water 
Act, so tomorrow morning Manhattan residents can 
start drinking from the East River." Forty years 
will pass before that oak is ready for lumbering. 
Purging industrial ooze out of a river will take 
   And so it is with Jesus' reversal of 
sin's curse (and the suffering that goes with it). 
What Jesus began doing to sin and its results 
won't be complete until the Second Coming. The 
purchase of salvation was complete and the outcome 
was settled with certainty. But the application 
of salvation to God's people was anything but 
finished. God "has saved" us, yet we are still "being 
saved" (I Corinthians 1:18). We are still on 
earth.., this means we're still going to feel the 
influence of that old curse. At least until heaven! 
   First Corinthians 15:45 calls Jesus "the 
last Adam" who came to undo the curse triggered 
in the Garden of Eden - but this summer you'll 
still be wrestling with weeds in your backyard, as 
well as a backache from all that hoeing. Only in 
Paradise will it be said, "No longer will there be 
any curse" (Revelation 22:3). 
   Jesus, thank you that you saved me... and 
that I am still being saved. I look to that day 
in heaven when there will be no more sorrow, 
sickness, disease or death! [Joni Eareckson Tada Daily
