And There Shall Be No More Curse: But The Throne Of God And Of The Lamb Shall Be In It

SIH’s Think On These Things: Rev 22:3

 

Rev 22:3
And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
What a wonderful thought!  When we enter eternity there will be no more curse, nor effects of sin in the world.   What will complete the empty space left by the absence of sin? The very presence of God and His Son, the Lamb, and our service to Him that is what will fill this void.  Can you imagine what the new earth will be like filled with the glory of God and the Son and all its activity be centered on perfect constant attention to God alone?

This type of existence is described elsewhere in Revelation…

Rev 7:14-17  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.  Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.  They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.  For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
What a day that will be!  To have the sinful actions of this world replaced by perfect submission to His will. Sickness, sorrow and death will be wiped away by the touch of the Lord’s hand.  Our labor under a hot sun fighting with weeds and thistles to procure food for our existence is now replaced by no longer hungering or thirsting nor fighting the physical results of sin in the world.  Satan’s walking to and fro seeking to devour us replaced by the very presence and glory of God Himself, lighting this new world.

But how is it possible for us to receive such great blessings from God?  We have this question answered in Gal 3:10-13…

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.  But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, [it is] evident: for, The just shall live by faith.  And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree:
It is through the work of Christ on the cross, that the curse of sin will be lifted for us throughout our eternity.  He is the One that took the curse upon Himself so that we might be liberated from that curse.  To do this, He became a curse by being falsely accused and hung on the cross receiving the wrath of God for our sins which he bear.
Let us thank the Lord for the total absolute deliverance from the curse of sin which is awaiting us in eternity.  And let us not forget to thank Him for His work on the cross, the basis of our deliverance from this curse.

May the Lord bless us as we “Think On These Things”.

      Hi Terry,

      I wish everyone would read God’s Word also…. it is such a blessing to know that God Himself has given us His Word to benefit from. Lord bless you. My prayers continue.

  2. I like your reminder of a sinless Heaven to come. Today, while driving my son to an appointment, I was thinking about how the first thing I will notice when I wake up in Paradise is the absence of aches and pains – and that is only the beginning of blessings…
    Blessings ~ Wendy

    Hard to even imagine what it is going to be like, Pastor Rob! God bless you for helping us think of all we have to be thankful for now and in the days to come!

  4. The Lord’s blessings here and now are so abundant and free, and His abiding presence is so real, that it is difficult to imagine what perfect bliss it will be to be completely free from the very presence of sin and we can worship Him with NO distractions whatever.

    We are one day closer!
    What an amazing God!
