- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
21:4 And death shall be no more - This is a full proof that this whole description belongs not to time, but eternity. Neither shall sorrow, or crying, or pain, be any more: for the former things are gone away - Under the former heaven, and upon the former earth, there was death and sorrow, crying and pain; all which occasioned many tears: but now pain and sorrow are fled away, and the saints have everlasting life and joy.
Re 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. No sorrow or travail of any kind shall ever enter within the walls of the city. The cry of anguish shall never be uttered, hearts shall never be broken, no tear shall ever dim the eye, and, most glorious of all, death shall be unknown. Death began his sway when man was expelled from Paradise; he ends it when the final judgment condemns Satan, death and hades to enter the lake of fire. The new Jerusalem will be painless, tearless, deathless, because it will be a sinless city. "The former things have passed away".

This is God's will for all who exercise faith in the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth; and love others as themselves, which is to happen here on earth once God's will is done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).

Praise GOD for His grace! The Lamb, Lord Jesus, bore our transgressions and separation from our Creator (because of man's first sin) so that we may know His kingdom! The curse of man was broken though His perfect life, His death, and His Resurrection! He lives today and soon He's coming back to judge the whole world! Repent and "call upon the name of the Lord and thou SHALT be SAVED"!!!

If we had family who did not make it in to heaven,there would be tears in heaven,what we know now will not be in heaven,if it was, then there would be sorrow in heaven and the tears would flow.

This is a great promise to all who will at least try to live by the words which they are reading.
It by-passes all politics and all illnesses and takes us to the very meaning of life.
