The Gospel means the Good News – of the revelation and salvation of Christ.
“For behold, I create new heavens
and a new earth,
and the former things shall not be remembered
or come into mind.
But be glad and rejoice forever
in that which I create;
for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy,
and her people to be a gladness.
I will rejoice in Jerusalem
and be glad in my people;
no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
and the cry of distress.” – Isaiah 65:17-19
The Apostle John was also shown a prophetic vision of a new heaven and a new earth, in Chapter 21 of Revelation, for, “the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “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.”
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” – John 3:16-17
The Gospel is the most wonderful, most incredible, most significant message ever proclaimed! We are living souls, made in the image of our Creator, but in bodily form (made of the dust of the earth). Our special purpose in life extends far beyond only the things of this world.
There’s a much greater existence for us in store, still much like this world today, yet only unimaginably more marvelous, with no more of the separation and darkness experienced today. In this world, we are all born lost in sin, heading towards eternal damnation according to our transgressions.
We only get a short time to live in this world – then judgment. But God is not willing that even one of his children should perish. What is his ultimate solution to save us, and grant to us the immaculate gifts of paradise? How has God provided a way to reconnect with him? to enter into the glory of a real place in his everlasting kingdom? and as his blessed children to inherit great and wonderful treasures that will never fade away?
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” – Jeremiah 29:11
