Free land ... a rare find!

Built on a Rock

Free land! Have you ever considered that, as a believer in Jesus Christ, you are a real estate agent for heaven?

The Bible speaks of heaven more than 500 times. Revelation 21 gives the most concise description of what is yet to come for all who are heaven bound. John is shown the glories of heaven and is told to write it down, for these words are “trustworthy and true.”

Revelation 21 starts with John seeing a new heaven and a new earth, as well as a new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. As he is watching this breath-taking vision, a loud voice from the throne says, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.” (Rev 21:3).

John continues by saying everything hurtful is removed. Tears are wiped away, sorrow is gone, there will be no more crying and no more pain, physical or emotional, because God himself has made all things new. God does a makeover on earth, heaven and Jerusalem. Sin is completely removed; the effects of sin are gone and the ability to sin is removed. Perfection is present because we are dwelling with God and God is our God.

At this point Satan and all who fail to believe in Jesus will be cast into the “lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” (Rev 21:8) Satan and any of his companions will no longer have the ability, in any way, to present sin’s temptations to the believer in Jesus Christ.

John describes the walls around Jerusalem as “a rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.” (Rev 21:11). The main street in the city is pure gold, so pure it is transparent as glass. There will no need of the sun because the glory of God gives it light. There is a river of life “that flows from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month.” (Rev 22:2)

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, then you are a real estate agent offering the opportunity to live in such a wonderful environment for free. The cost to live there was paid by Christ when He died on the cross for your sins. You must believe that Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life,” because no one comes to the Father except through Jesus Christ.

If you’re looking for real estate, this is a rare find. And the Bible says it is free to all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
