I didn’t post yesterday as I have started a small process of updating my blog’s technology and I had expected some downtime with the blog yesterday. Turns out it didn’t happen! Anyway, I am getting out the Bedazzler and making some changes to the blog over the next couple months. Most of them will just mean a better experience for you! I mean, after you experience these upgrades, you will probably want to pen something attuned to this:
The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19 The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass. Rev 21:18-21
Yeah, not really. But, boy, that sure does sound like a great place to end up. It’s nice to carry that hope around with you and to stop and think sometimes what this life upgrade will be really like!
22 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. Rev 22:1-5
