Revelation 21-22
Resources:; Google; NIV; King James Bible

Chapter 21 - The "new" Jerusalem is prepared as a bride for her husband, Christ.
  • A new heaven and a new earth.
  • The new Jerusalem where God dwells has come down from heaven to be amongst His people and they with Him.
  • The church is triumphant.
  • All sorrow has been banished.
  • The presence of God and the Lamb are on new earth.
  • No need for the sun or moon for the glory of God gives it (new kingdom) light and the Lamb is it lamp.
  • Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Chapter 22 - Here is the description of all the prophetic visions. The water and tree of life, the throne of God and the Lamb, the Holy Spirit, the bride, the church and the closing blessing.
  • Satan has no power here as he did before he was conquered.
  • The Lord God is faithful and true.
  • Christ will come quickly.
  • v12 - "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. v13 - I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
  • Those alone are blessed who do His commandments.
  • v20 - He who testifies to these things say, "Yes, I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
  • v21 - The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen.
  • Let whosoever will, or, is willing, come and take of the water of life freely.

Giving thanks:

From Rhonda's Kitchen: Stew to Warm the Heart
Each member's household received a gallon mason jar of stew for our first "blue norther" and Thanksgiving celebration.
Recipe as follows:
  • Brown 2 lbs. ground meat while in a very large pot bring 3 cups of water to a boil.
  • Drain and add browned ground meat and a couple of bay leaves. Reduce heat and cook for 30 minutes.
  • Dice 4 large Idaho potatoes, lightly salt and add to pot.
  • Chop 2 large onions of your choice and add to pot. Allow to cook for 20 minutes before next step.
  • Next, in a large colander, drain 2 cans whole kernel corn; 2 cans cut green beans; 2 cans English peas; and 2 cans carrots. Toss gently, lightly salt then add to pot.
  • Finally, add 2 cans of diced tomatoes and 2 large cans of your favorite spaghetti sauce.
  • Simmer for 1 1/2 hours stirring occasionally.
  • This can be served immediately with wedges of cornbread or garlic bread or crackers. It keeps well in the refrigerator for up to a week but it probably won't last that long. It also, freezes well.
Happy Thanksgiving Holidays everyone!!
