Built to Last
The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb (Revelation 21:14, NIV).
My Father’s House is a home built to last, not just for a lifetime, but forever! As John continued to gaze on the spectacular vision God gave him, he described Heaven as a city with foundations: “The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb... The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone” (Rev. 21:14, 19). The walls of Heaven are actually built on twelve foundations, each one decorated with a different gem. In addition to the spectacular beauty that is implied, we can be assured that Heaven is eternal and unshakable. It’s permanent!
Our world is a very unstable place. We can never be certain of the future for ourselves or for the next generation. The fear and apprehension of what’s around the corner of our lives can be paralyzing. But when we get to Heaven, we will be certain and sure of absolute, total, infinite stability. Heaven is built to last!
