The ban will be lifted. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in its place in the city; his servants will worship him, they will see him face to face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. It will never be night again and they will not need lamplight or sunlight, because the Lord God will be shining on them. They will reign for ever and ever.

Saint John's revelation has come to its climatic end. The saints and God are reunited  in the new Jerusalem where the glorious light from God illuminates everything forever. Maranatha!

On this New Year's eve of the Church, we are guided to gaze on the glorious splendor to come. This reminds me of the throat-catching final chapter in The Last Battle, the final book in the Narnian Chronicals. C.S. Lewis beautifully describes the indescribable, where the children can swim up thundering waterfalls, stare into the sun, have telescopic vision, can run so fast it's literally like flying and where the constant, joyful cry is "further up and further in!", until they meet Aslan (Jesus) face to face.

Oh happy longing within me for this day! Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus come!
Little Flower, please pray for me.
