Outline notes from this message:

 

Stephen Grant

Revelation chp 21 vs 1 to 27

Where will you spend eternity?

Chapter 21 of Revelation answers this question

Here is a detailed description of our eternal home

Verse 1 – ‘and I saw’ – marks a division in Revelation

This is beyond the great White throne judgement

This is the eternal state

Isaiah 66:26 – New heaven and new earth

Matthew 19:28 – old earth, regenerate

Followed by a New Heaven and New Earth not simply a regenerate old heaven and old earth

‘no more sea’ – water based environment is gone

No more evaporation, distillation and condensation

Different environment, not water based

Verse 2 – Jerusalem – 3 Jerusalems in the Bible

  1. Historical Jerusalem
  2. Jerusalem of the millennial reign
  3. The eternal city of the New Jerusalem (Revelation chp 21)

 

Jerusalem married to God, brings together regenerate Old and New Testament saints

Explains the Old Testament symbolism of the nation of Israel as the bride of Jehovah

This is the Fathers House

This is Gods presence like no other time

With no sin present; Gods tabernacle is with men

Verse 4 – no more tears in heaven

Verse 6 – It is done, cf the words of Christ on the Cross ; ‘It is finished’ here is the accomplished reality and consequences of this

The Appearance of the New Jerusalem; Encompasses the redeemed from the Old and New Testaments

Thus the names of the old Testament redeemed appear on it (verse 12)

The Glory of God emanates from this place

1500 miles cubed

Jasper – crystal clear diamond

Has walls – therefore has limits

Has gates – therefore can go in and out of it

Verse 15 – God measures what belongs to Himself

City lies four square

Cube shaped

1500 miles cubed

The holy places of the tabernacle and temple were cubic

216 feet thick

Walls like diamond

Walls 1500 miles high

Radiates out the Glory of God

Verse 22 – ‘And I saw no temple therein’

No temple because there is no sin

God no longer needs to distance Himself from man

Verse 24 – Will God structure His people into Nations and Kings in eternity
