John in the book of Revelation said, "I saw a new heaven and a new earth. I saw the Holy City, The New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God.
The angel told John the words of God, "Listen! I am coming soon! I will bring rewards with me. I will repay each person for what he has done. I am the beginning of all things. And I am the end of all things. People who have obeyed me will be blessed. They will get to eat the fruit from the tree of life. They can go through the gates into the heavenly city.
This last book in the Bible tells us about that beautiful city. It is described as a very, very large city made of pure gold. Its twelve foundations are decorated with every kind of precious jewel. It has a high wall with twelve gates and each gate is made of a huge pearl. The names of the twelve apostles are written on the gates and the gates are open all the time; they never close.
The street is also made of gold that is clear like glass. There is no sun and there is no moon there. The glory of God and Jesus provide the light. Nighttime never comes.
Everything there is good because nothing evil will be able to enter in. There will be no more sadness and no more crying. What a beautiful place!
Jesus said, "I have sent my angel to tell you these things. I am the bright, Morning Star. Yes, I am coming soon."
Come Lord Jesus!
