Revelation 21 1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first
heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more
sea. 2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from
God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And
I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of
God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his
people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4And
God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no
more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any
more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5And he that sat
upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto
me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6And he said unto
me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I
will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of
life freely. 7He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will
be his God, and he shall be my son. 8But the fearful, and
unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and
sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the
lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second
death. 9And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the
seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me,
saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
10And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain,
and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of
heaven from God, 11Having the glory of God: and her light was like
unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as
crystal; 12And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and
at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the
names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13On the east
three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and
on the west three gates. 14And the wall of the city had twelve
foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the
Lamb. 15And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the
city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16And the city
lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he
measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length
and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17And he measured the
wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the
measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18And the building of the
wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear
glass. 19And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished
with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper;
the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an
emerald; 20The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh,
chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a
chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of
one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were
transparent glass. 22And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God
Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23And the city had no
need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of
God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. 24And the
nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the
kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 25And the
gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no
night there. 26And they shall bring the glory and honour of the
nations into it. 27And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing
that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a
lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life. .

WOW! The 21st chapter of revelation really excites me, I can’t wait to
be with the Lord for all eternity(but I will till he is ready for
me). No more tears, or fears, evil temptations, nothing that we have
to deal with here on this earth will be there The only thing that we
can be sure we will take with us is the holy Word of God and the
knowledge that we receive from the holy spirit. Doesn’t that sound
great? What do you think about this chapter?
