Child’s version of Revelations: The New Heavens and the New Earth

Inspired by Revelations: The New Jerusalem
“I promise you there will be a land where there are rainbows and smiles, no more tears anymore. There will be candies, kindness and peace. You will have a white snow-like robe and a golden crown. There will be no fear of beatings, of extra homework and curfews. Instead, your hamster will lie with your cat fearlessly.You shall dance with the Lamb and sing with the angels. You will see God in the throne room and you will worship Him happily everyday,”so said the little elf from the woods.

Here’s an effort to practise relaying symbolism and imagery from Revelations in a different way.

God, make me beautiful

God,

make me beautiful as Eden,

as the 7-day creation,

before Adam and Eve disobeyed,

and sin entered the world.

 

God,

make me beautiful,

as the love marks on your palms,

the crown of thorns on your head,

and the empty grave which you once lay.

 

God,

make me beautiful as heaven,

like the holiness of the saints,

like the new heaven and new earth.

 

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”- 1 Peter 3:3-4

The truth

I’d like to share an excerpt from what I read from the book “Philosophers who Believe” by Kelly James Clark.

According to Psalm 51, the Lord desires truth in our innermost being; but according to Jeremiah, ‘the human heart is deceitful above all things; it is desperately sick; who can understand it?’ Truth in our innermost being is not easy to achieve. It is hard to see what the truth is; it is also hard to tell the truth, to say what you see without imposing some kind of self-justificatory and distorting framework.

                       – Alvin Plantinga, considered the world’s leading Protestant philosopher of God.
