John, the son of Zebedee, was given a glimpse of Glory. In vivid detail, John recounted the size and shape, the magnificence and majesty of the renewed Jerusalem, the Heavenly city.

I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. I also saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation 21:1–2).


Apparently, when describing Heaven’s grandeur, John ran out of vocabulary. What he saw was as beautiful as a… as a… as a “bride” on her wedding day! He couldn’t imagine anything more beautiful.


Heaven, John continued, was “arrayed with God’s glory. Her radiance was like a precious jewel, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal” (Revelation 21:11).


Within the boundaries of Heaven, there is a city. “The city had a massive high wall, with twelve gates… There were three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west” (Revelation 21:12-13).So opulent, so lavish, so spectacular is this city, that “the main street of the city was pure gold” (Revelation 21:21).


This great city is cubical in dimension, “a square, as wide as it was long. In fact, its length and width and height were each 1,400 miles” (Revelation 21:16, NLT). Humm… a skyscraper that tall would have how many levels?


But what is the most outstanding thing about Heaven? “God’s dwelling is with humanity, and he will live with them. They will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them and will be their God” (Revelation 21:3). Jesus will welcome His children into His home, where we, the redeemed, will joyfully reside in His company for eon after endless eon…


“… think on these things” (Philippians 4:8, KJV).
