Revelation 21:3 The New Jerusalem

Continuing our study of Revelation 21.

Revelation 21:3  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.’

We discussed yesterday that God is bringing us all together, like the proud father that He is. Many of us will be centred at the New Jerusalem and many will live away but yet return on frequent pilgrimages to our new home city.

Psalm 84:5  ‘Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.’

At this moment we struggle with the separation between us and God. We catch blessed glimpses of the heavenly courts but no more. 

Acts 7:55  ‘But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.’

But this separation will be gone and we will be able to enter into the full immersion of His presence which will be glorious.

Revelation 21:4  ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’

For many of us, our present time is one of suffering and tribulation but this time will pass away and we will enter into an eternity of blessing.

And it will have been so worth remaining faithful!

  • Revelation 21:22 The light of Jerusalem
    Jerusalem will be the centre of the world and the nations will tithe their wealth to Jesus. Previously, the kings of the earth have rebelled against Christ Jesus and Jerusalem but now they pay homage.
  • Revelation 21:9 ‘From a mountain…’
    This describes the city as having twelve visible foundations, and this suggests it is a stepped pyramid construction. The city would have twelve levels, decreasing in size, each one built on its own foundation, ascending to form a pyramid with the top level being the apex of the city. 
  • Revelation 21:6 He who is thirsty
    The goods of this world will crumble in our hands, swept away by the latest flood or fire, but the riches of God’s kingdom will stand forever. 
  • Revelation 21:4 Changes coming…
    Life holds its fair share of tragedies and these words are a soothing balm to those who have held on and endured. The world will not remain the same and the cruelties of life are not our destiny. The curse that has cast such a deep shadow upon this world, caused by the sin of man, will pass away and the blessing of redemption will shine its goodness upon the righteous in Christ Jesus for all eternity.
