HOLY CITY REST

If the skies fall to the earth
And the moon don’t give her light
If the earth sounds an end-time birth
I have found a love in you
that no power in the universe can shake
Your love has made
all things new

My love, my awesome love, Christ Jesus
“Keeper of forever”
I turned the power off to the Devil
when I dedicated my soul to you
I can sense him talking
but it is only My Masters voice I save
Your voice is soft and gentle
And peace rides your waves

The devil lost control of me when
I squelched out his sound
By reading Romans 10: verse nine
And saying, "I accept"
My name is written down
Now I travel only on Holy Grounds

My minds eye sees a new earth
Where the seas will float away
We will have that special touch
Where wings flutter
And flowers breathe,
I believe they will become living things

If I believe and then desire
Then my heart will surely shout for joy
Maybe I will hear a rose bud speak
And “oh yes”,
It is a robin’s conversation I seek!

The new Heavens await, my wings take flight
Oh, what a Godly sight
The atmosphere and I become one
Flying into forever
Flying with the eagles
Soaring with the wind
To this, there will be no end
There in the distance, something shiny and aglow
The light puts on a great big show

Please see the city
The new Jerusalem
coming down out of the Heavens
Gates of pearl, walls of jasper,
Streets of gold
like looking through pure glass
It is called, "The City Of God"!
If you want to live here, just ask

Please enter in at the straight way
no entrance fee today
Jesus paid the cost in red
Because in the Holy Book it said:
There will be a new Heaven and a new earth
where therein dwelleth righteousness
and the former things are passed away!

REVELATIONS
21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof.
21:24 And the nations [[of them which are saved]] shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory [[and honour]] into it.
21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
21:26 And they shall bring the glory [[and honour]] of the nations into it.
21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth,
neither [whatsoever] worketh abomination, or [maketh] a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

nice take on the eternal city's job!

We can only imagine. And never image what it will really be like. Several of your images (speaking sparrow, flying with the eagles) have been in my mind's eye also. But He will have so much more for us - mainly, being in His presence - forever!

Beautiful descriptions.
