The New Jerusalem
Then I saw anew heaven and anew earth.
The first heaven and the first earth had disappeared,
was no sea anymore
And I saw the holy city, Anew Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven from God.
It was prepared like a bride dressed for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying,
“Now God’s presence is with his people, and he will live with them,
and they will be his people
God himself will be with them and
will be their God
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and there will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain,
because all the old ways are gone.”
The One who was sitting on the throne said,
I am making everything Anew!”
Then he said,
“Write this, because these words are
true and can be trusted
The One on the throne said to me,
It is finished
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End
I will give free water from the spring of the water of life
anyone who is thirsty
7 Those who win the victory will receive this,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my children.
But cowards, those who refuse to believe, who do evil things, who kill, who sin sexually, who do evil magic, who worship idols, and who tell lies—all these will have a place in the lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last troubles came to me, saying,
Come with me,
and I will show you the bride,
the wife of the Lamb
And the angel carried me away by the Spirit
to a very large and high mountain
He showed me the holy city,
coming down out of heaven from God
Having the GLORY of God, Her light was like a
most precious stone,
like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
The city had a great high wall with twelve gates with twelve angels at
the gates, and on each gate
was written the name of one of the
twelve tribes of Israel
There were three gates on the east,
three on the north,
three on the south,
and three on the west.
The walls of the city were built on twelve foundation stones,
and on the
stones were written the names of
apostles of the Lamb
The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod
made of gold to measure the city,
its gates, and its wall.
The city was built in a square and its
length was equal to its width
The angel measured the city with the rod. The city was 1,500 miles long, 1,500 miles wide, and 1,500 miles high.
The angel also measured the wall.
It was 216 feet high,
by human measurements, which the angel was using
The wall was made of jasper,
the last stone in the High Priest's breastplate
The name of the sixth stone to adorn Lucifer
The Root is 'polished' yashpheh Strong
and the city was
made of pure gold, as pure as glass
The foundation stones of the city walls were decorated
with every kind of jewel
The first foundation was jasper, the second was sapphire, the third was chalcedony, the fourth was emerald, the fifth was onyx, the sixth was carnelian, the seventh was chrysolite, the eighth was beryl, the ninth was topaz, the tenth was chrysoprase, the eleventh was jacinth,
and the twelfth was
The twelve gates were twelve pearls,
each gate having been made from a single pearl
And the street of the city was made of
clear as glass
I did not see a temple in the city,
Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the city’s temple
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it,
glory of God is its light,
Lamb is the city’s lamp
By its light the people of the world will walk,
and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it.
The city’s gates will never be shut on any day,
because there is no night there
The glory and the honor of the nations
will be brought into it.
Nothing unclean and no one who does shameful things
or tells lies will ever go into it.
whose names are written in
LAMBS book of life
will enter the city
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life
shining like crystal
and was flowing from the throne of
God -AND- of the Lamb
down the middle of the street of the city.
The tree of life
of the river
It produces fruit twelve times a year,
once each month.
The leaves of the tree
are for the healing of all the nations
Nothing that God judges guilty
will be in that city
The throne of God AND of the Lamb will be there,
servants will worship him.
They will see his face,
and his name will be written on their foreheads.
There will never be night again.
They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun,
because the Lord God will give them
And they will rule as
kings forever and ever
The angel said to me,
“These words can be trusted and are true.”
the God of the spirits of the prophets,
sent his angel to
show his servants
that must happen soon

Blessed is the one who

who heard and saw
When I heard and saw them
I bowed down to worship at the
feet of the angel
who showed these things to me.
But the angel said to me,
Do not worship me! I am a servant like you,
your brothers the prophets,
and all those who obey the words in this book.
Then the angel told me,
Do not keep secret the words of prophecy
in this book,
because the time is near
for all this to happen
Let whoever is doing evil continue to do evil.
Let whoever is unclean continue to be unclean.
Let whoever is doing right continue to do right.
Let whoever is holy continue to be holy.”
'Listen! I am coming soon!
I will bring my reward with me,
and I will repay each one of you for what you have done!

the First and the Last,
the Beginning and the End
'Blessed are those who wash their robes so that they will
receive the right to eat the fruit
from the tree of life
and may go through the
gates into the city
Outside the city are the evil people,
those who do evil magic, who sin sexually, who murder,
who worship idols, and who love lies and tell lies.
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to tell you
these things for the
I am the descendant from the family of David,
and I am the
bright morning star
The Spirit and the bride say,
Let the one who hears this say,
Let whoever is thirsty come; whoever wishes may have
the water of life as a free gift
I warn everyone who hears the
words of the prophecy of this book:
If anyone adds anything to these words,
God will add to that person the disasters
written about in this book
And if anyone takes away from the
words of this book of prophecy,
God will take away that one’s
share of the tree of life and of the holy city,
which are written about in this book.
the One who says these things
are true says,
"Yes, I am coming soon”
GLORY to the KING, he reigns in VICTORY
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
ANew and Glorious
