Origins and Destiny – Robert Revie

An outline of Robert Revie’s message from Revelation chapter 21, preached at Bridgend Gospel Hall, New Cumnock
We regret that no audio recording is available for this message, although many other of Mr Robert Revies messages are available here:

Where do we come from?
Where are we going to?
Is there anything beyond death?

Job 14:10: “but man dies and wastes away: yea man gives up the ghost, and where is he?”

“If a man die shall he live again?”

Job 19:25-26: “for I know that my redeemer liveth and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth… In my flesh I shall see God”

Enter ye in at the straight gate

The broad way and the narrow way:
Consider the :

Entrance
Dimension
Numbers
Destiny

Are you going to heaven on the narrow Road?

Who will be in heaven?

Those who have confessed their sin to God
Those whose names are in the Lambs book of life
Those who have been born again

Is your name written in the Lambs book of Life?

Where is heaven?

It is at the end of a believers life.
83 people die every minute in the world
5000 people die per hour in the world.
Death is a junction not a destination.
Change here for eternity

How do we get to heaven?

Is it by keeping the 10 commandments?
Can’t keep them.

Doing the best you can?
Can’t be good enough.

Believing in God?
Even Satan believes in God

We must :

Confess our sins to God knowing that all my sins were laid upon Christ
John 14:6 – I am the way, the truth and the life.

Heaven :

A place of no more pain
A place of no more sickness
A place of no more tears
A place of no more curse
A place of no more death
A place of no more night
A place of no more sin (Revelation 21:27)

“For the former things are passed away”

2 ways : the broad way and the narrow way
2 destinies : heaven or hell

Ayr Conference 2015 – A Heaven Belonging to Gods People – Stephen Grant

Just added to the site, Stephen Grants message from this years annual Christian Conference held in Riverside Evangelical Church Ayr;

 

A Heaven Belonging to Gods People – Revelation chp 21 – Stephen Grant

 

Outline notes from this message:

 

Stephen Grant

Revelation chp 21 vs 1 to 27

Where will you spend eternity?

Chapter 21 of Revelation answers this question

Here is a detailed description of our eternal home

Verse 1 – ‘and I saw’ – marks a division in Revelation

This is beyond the great White throne judgement

This is the eternal state

Isaiah 66:26 – New heaven and new earth

Matthew 19:28 – old earth, regenerate

Followed by a New Heaven and New Earth not simply a regenerate old heaven and old earth

‘no more sea’ – water based environment is gone

No more evaporation, distillation and condensation

Different environment, not water based

Verse 2 – Jerusalem – 3 Jerusalems in the Bible

  1. Historical Jerusalem
  2. Jerusalem of the millennial reign
  3. The eternal city of the New Jerusalem (Revelation chp 21)

 

Jerusalem married to God, brings together regenerate Old and New Testament saints

Explains the Old Testament symbolism of the nation of Israel as the bride of Jehovah

This is the Fathers House

This is Gods presence like no other time

With no sin present; Gods tabernacle is with men

Verse 4 – no more tears in heaven

Verse 6 – It is done, cf the words of Christ on the Cross ; ‘It is finished’ here is the accomplished reality and consequences of this

The Appearance of the New Jerusalem; Encompasses the redeemed from the Old and New Testaments

Thus the names of the old Testament redeemed appear on it (verse 12)

The Glory of God emanates from this place

1500 miles cubed

Jasper – crystal clear diamond

Has walls – therefore has limits

Has gates – therefore can go in and out of it

Verse 15 – God measures what belongs to Himself

City lies four square

Cube shaped

1500 miles cubed

The holy places of the tabernacle and temple were cubic

216 feet thick

Walls like diamond

Walls 1500 miles high

Radiates out the Glory of God

Verse 22 – ‘And I saw no temple therein’

No temple because there is no sin

God no longer needs to distance Himself from man

Verse 24 – Will God structure His people into Nations and Kings in eternity
