Revelation 22

In the center of God’s new city, with all of its beautiful splendor, there is a garden. It is an incredible picture of a majestic place that doesn’t look similar to what we know an experience daily. Don’t look to return this picture, because it isn’t of someone else’s family holiday. Listen as Jonathan invites us to view this picture, and see how we are accepted into the family that lives there.
