18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
Remember, these verses deal with the time at the close of the Millennium, when all things are future and forever.
I am intrigued by God’s promise that Jerusalem will be a delight. No more Old City, with it’s small streets and cobbled pathways. No more ruins from the wars that will level Jerusalem and Israel during the Tribulation. It will be a “delight.”
Terry has a hard time picturing heave as a huge celestial city. He doesn’t like cities, far prefers the outdoors, woods, isolation. I think God will provide for each soul that which pleases most. I don’t think we have any concept of what heaven will be, but I do know we will be eternally happy there.
God’s people will be a joy. There will be no weeping or crying, for all will be peace.
Sometimes I just wish it would be today!
