The New Jerusalem  

The New Jerusalem

 Then I saw new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and a new earth for the first heaven 

and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea, I saw the Holy City, the New

Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her

husband.  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men,

and he will live with them.  They will be his people and God himself will be with them and be their

God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or be crying or pain,

for the old order of things has passed away.  Revelation 21: 1-4.

 There is a real heaven        

`The scripture makes it clear to us that there is a heaven or that heaven is real.  Every description of it is a picture of perfection, be it in numbers, or in dimensions, whatever the description used to describe heaven in the book of Revelation, we find perfection.

Does your heart thirst for the Living God?  He will wipe every tear from your eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or cry or pain, for the old things has passed away.  “Peter tells us we’re “aliens and strangers in the world.” 1st Peter 2:11.  The large oceans covering half of the earth will be no more, but there will be an abundance of rivers, lakes and small seas on earth forever. Isaiah 60:5.

 

The names of the New city:

  • The Holy city verse 2.
  • New Jerusalem. Revelation 3:12.
  • The bride, the Lamb’s wife. Revelation 21:2, 9.
  • The Tabernacle of God. Revelation 13:6.
  • The Holy Jerusalem. Revelation 21:19.
  • The Heavenly Jerusalem Hebrews 12:22.
  • The Father’s house. John 14:2.

 

Our Citizenship is in heaven.  Therefore, heaven-minded and heaven-bound people put behind them everything earthly, and strife for everything heavenly.  But the truth of the matter is that it is not everybody that will make it to heaven.
