And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, as a bride adorned for her husband. de adorned for her husband. Revelation 21:2
God said of the Old Testament saints, “But now they desire…a heavenly country Therefore God. .has prepared a city for them” (Hebrews 11:16 NKJV). And what a city! Just as a bride goes to great pains to make herself lovely, so God will spare no effort to make the new Jerusalem beautiful beyond compare.
The heavenly Jerusalem is an enormous, complex city. fashioned out of unearthly, crystalline gold, vaster than any earthly city. The Bible states that it’s over 1,400 miles high, wide, and long. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a giant cube. Likely it’s a towering, many-spired structure.
Believers have been desiring just such a fantastic city for thousands of years. It’s, therefore, the true home of every longing of us all” (Galatians 4:26 NKJV). Right now this amazing city is in the heavens, but in the future, it will descend to Earth.
This city is where God dwells, where His throne is, and its millions of palaces, boulevards, and parks glow with the glory of the Almighty. It’s a real place, and you’ll be there soon.
