Pristine Grace

Rev 21:4, (GILL), And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes,.... Occasioned by sin, Satan, the hidings of God's face, and afflictive dispensations of Providence; for these will be no more:

and there shall be no more death; natural or violent; there will be no more putting of the saints to death, or persecution of them unto death, as in former times; nor will they die a natural death any more; these children of the resurrection, and inhabitants of the new heaven and earth, will be like the angels, who die not; there will be no more deadness as to spiritual things among the saints; and as for the second death, that will have no power over them. So the Jews say [u], abl dytel htym Nya, "there is no death in the world to come"; good is laid up for the righteous in the world to come, and with them is no death [x]; and after the resurrection the body is perfect, and shall never after taste the taste of death [y].

Neither sorrow, nor crying; on account of sin, or because of oppression and persecution, or through the loss of near relations and friends; sorrow and sighing will flee away, all occasions thereof being gone: neither shall there be any more pain; either of body or mind; there will be nothing to afflict the mind, and make that uneasy, but all the reverse; nor will there be any sickness or diseases of body, for the body will be raised glorious, powerful, incorruptible, and spiritual.

For the former things are passed away; not only the first heaven and earth, the world, its fashion, and its lusts; but the former grievous times under Rome Pagan and Papal, and everything which in this present life gives uneasiness and distress.

[u] Echa Rabbati, fol. 48. 2. & Midrash Kohelet, fol. 61. 2. [x] Maimon. Teshuva, c. 8. sect. 1. [y] Midrash Hanneelam in Zohar in Gen. fol. 70. 1.
