Bible Study & Devotional (Day 260)

Guiding Scripture: Isaiah 25:8 he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.


 Beautifully Expected End

Contributing Writer: Lindsey Capron



There’s an expected end for the life of the believer. As we deal with the catastrophic result of sin, God had a plan. In fact, He’s had one all along. He’s had a life plan here on earth and life after where things will be made new. It will be as if the reset button was pressed on heaven and earth.


In these increasingly evil and dark days, I look forward to the day when death, sorrow, and sin will be destroyed forever. God, Himself will wipe every tear from our eyes, and we’ll be able to live with Him in everlasting joy. 


While this promise is recorded in the book of Revelation 21:4, it’s one of the many echoes He made for the redemption plan when He will judge the earth. Isaiah 25:8, God made the same declaration and promise in a prophecy.


Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death for all time, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He shall take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken it. 



Despite what Satan and the world say, God loves us so much that He created a plan long ago for us to have a chance to live how we were truly intended to live again; in perfect relationship with Him forever in heaven. And when the Bible speaks of “His people”, it speaks of those who have accepted salvation through His son Jesus Christ. 


God had the gospel before the gospel was birthed into the world. 


It’s hard to ignore the death, destruction, sin, and evil corruption we see daily. In some cases, it seems like it’s getting worse. But take comfort that God will correct all wrongs, and His righteous justice will prevail. God will even take the shame off His people even in their sinful state. If He’d already spoken, you could consider it done. 


​Do you look forward to everlasting freedom from cancer, sin, corruption, evil, and sorrow? God’s plan for redeeming this world and His people includes you.

Yes, YOU. 


You are one prayer away from everlasting life, freedom, and joy with God. Will you pray this prayer?


Dear Lord,

I come to you now admitting that I am a sinner in need of a Savior. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and that He rose again on the third day with all power in His hands. Come into my heart and save me. Teach me, Lord, how to walk like you. Please teach me how to talk like you. And teach me how to live and lead others to love You, your righteousness as I have been taught today. In Jesus Name. Amen.
