The Promise Described 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. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. - Rev. 21:3-4
The Promise Described Everyone must decide for themselves whether they will receive Gods promise or not. 1. In faith, believe the promise and live life obedient to God in anticipation of receiving it (Rev. 21:7). 2. Never fully commit to it, live life by your own rules and fail to receive eternal torment (Rev. 21:8).
