ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Wednesday 8th December 2021

TOPIC: GOD'S DWELLING PLACE TEXT: REVELATION 21 : 1 - 14 Has it ever occurred to you that 'Eden' means the Presence of God'? From the first day God created man, God made it crystal clear to him that His dwelling place is with man. Adam and Eve enjoyed a very close intimacy with God. The last intimate relationships that man enjoyed with God was in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:8; 23). But what was lost in Genesis 3 was regained in Revelation 21, Hallelujah! We are closer to the blissful eternal New Heaven and New Earth planned by God. Adam and Eve were so intimate with God that they did not need prayer to reach out to Him. That is why there was no mention of prayer in the lives of Adam and Eve; they did not need any family alter because Eden was the presence of God. Today's reading is bad news for Satan and his workers but good news for the children of God. John heard a loud voice from the throne of God saying "Behold, the dwelling place with man. He will dwell with them and they will be His people and God himself will be with them as their God" of God is (Revelation 21:3-4). And as it was with Adam and Eve before the fall, there won't be any need for prayer because we will fellowship with God face to face, Hallelujah!

QUESTION Is your future dwelling place the New Heaven or the lake that burns with fire and sulfur? PRAYER Thank You Father for the great life we shall have with You in the New Heaven, in Jesus name, Amen.
