ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Thursday 9th December, 2021

TOPIC: NO TEMPLE IN THE NEW CITY. TEXT: REVELATION 21 : 22 - 27, 22 : 1 - 5 John gives us a very important fact about the city (New Jerusalem). One conspicuous landmark in every city is the place of worship. In Abuja, Nigeria's capital, the twin land marks are the national ecumenical centre for Christians and the national mosque for Muslims. It's the same all over the world. God chose to fellowship with Adam and Eve before they sinned. Adam lived for 930 years and there's no mention of him attending church service or even praying because there was no need for that! It was after the fall that we started to hear about places of sacrifice, altars, tabernacles, temples, synagogues and now churches. As it was in the garden of Eden, we shall not need temples in the new city because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple. We shall not need Kainji or Shiroro dams to generate light because Christ, who is the uncreated light (John 8:12), will be there. Another interesting thing is that the river of the water of life (Genesis 2:10) that was forbidden in Eden is permitted in the New Heavenly Jerusalem. There, Eden has been restored - Hallelujah!

QUESTION If there's going to be a roll call in this brand new, restored, high definition Eden, will your name be there? PRAYER Dear Lord, please give me the grace to continually seek God's kingdom and His righteousness even when it costs me everything on this side of eternity, in Jesus name, Amen.
