Read on to see for yourself!
Revelation 21 the Heaven Chapter
1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
A new sky and a new surface of the same old planet Earth! Sorry salty sea lovers... NO MORE SEA! But I am sure there will be big fresh water lakes! So cheer up! Perhaps even with some good waves for the surfers among you?
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
See, it is "upstairs" right now somewhere in Heaven--obviously out there in Space somewhere! It's a Space City of Light! And here it comes out of the sky and lands on the New Earth.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them,
Tabernacle means Tent! God's tent will be with men! And Jesus is going to live with us, right here on Earth! What does this "tent" look like? What kind of City is this? In what form? Flat like our cities, or in the form of a cube or a sphere, or like a flying saucer? The angel will describes it all in detail for us in this chapter.
4 "and they shall
be his people, and God himself shall
be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall
be no more death, neither
sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any
more pain: for the former things are passed away.
So if you have done
anything of the above, you'd better get saved! There is even hope
for you, as there are plenty of saved former murderers, liars and
whoremongers living in the City!
9 "And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,"
This "Great CITY"--Heaven--looks like a "great and high mountain" that comes out of Heaven--out of space in other words.
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:"
This city is a light source in itself, shining with a glorious light like that comes from a precious gemstone, like "jasper", meaning diamond! So this city refracts light that comes from within and it shines like a diamond, clear as crystal! It looks beautiful!
13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
is a great wall around it with 12 gates in it, made of giant
pearls, as we will read later.
Now we're gonna find out how gigantic, enormous this city is.
15 And he that
talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates
thereof, and the wall thereof."
The angel measured
the length of the city 12000 furlongs long, which is about
1500 Roman miles, or about 1400 English miles which amounts
to about 2.200 KM! But that is just one side of it. And
as its surface is a (four)square, it has four sides that long,
altogether about 8.800 KM around! That's as big as Europe! THAT
IS A GIANT CITY! HUMONGOUS!!
18 And the building
of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like
unto clear glass.
20 The fifth,
sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth,
beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh,
a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
WOW YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT! NEVER A CITY WAS BUILT AS BIG AND BEAUTIFUL AS THAT!
22 And I saw no
temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple
