Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 7 August 2019

Electric City

“And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” (Revelation 22:5)

Today’s Morsel:  Kaukauna, Wisconsin, is known as the Electric City.  Prior to 1880, and shortly afterward, Kaukauna was known as "The Lion on the Fox".  This nickname was changed to "The Electric City" upon the completion of a hydroelectric plant in the city.  John said, “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation 21:2)And that there will be no need of light there because God will be the light there.  Jesus said, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18).  He can light up any city with just a spoken word.  He also states, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12)  Follow Him now, and the light will lead you to the city that is prepared for you.  Are you looking for that city of lights?

Sing: There’s a country far beyond the starry sky, there’s a city where there never comes a night; if we’re faithful we shall go there by and by; tis the city where the Lamb is the Light.
In the city where the Lamb is the Light.   In the city where there cometh no night; I’ve a mansion over there, and when free from toil and care, I am going where the Lamb is the Light.

Thought For Today: Are you ready for the Electric City?
