This Christian Journey:
The New Jerusalem
In the Millennium
It’s Manifestation (Rev 21.2)
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem,
coming down from God out of heaven,
prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
It’s Association (Rev 21.9-10)
And 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. 10 And 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,
It’s Description (Rev 21.11-23)
Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious,
even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
And had a wall great and high,
and had twelve gates
[vs 21], and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which
are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates;
and on the west three gates.
And the wall of the city had twelve
[vs 19-20], and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the
And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the
gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16
And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as
the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed,
twelve thousand furlongs
[1,500 miles]. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
17 And he measured the wall
thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a
man, that is, of the angel. 18
And the building of the wall of it was of jasper:
and the city was pure gold, like unto
clear glass. 19 And
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;
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth,
sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the
tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
And 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.
22 And I saw no temple therein: for
the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
23 And 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.
It’s Position (Isa 2.2; Gal 4.25-26)
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S
house shall be established in the top
of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all
nations shall flow unto it.
For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now
is, and is in bondage with her children. 26
But Jerusalem which is
above is free, which is the mother of us all.
1 But in the last
days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the
house of the LORD
be established in the top of the mountains,
exalted above the
and people shall flow unto it. 2 And many
nations shall come, and
say, Come, and let us
go up to
the mountain of
and to the house of the God of
and he will teach us of his ways,
and we will walk in his
paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of
the LORD from Jerusalem.
It’s Exaltation (Isa 60.1-3; Zech 14.16; Psm 97.6; Rev 21.24-26) –
The nations will worship New Jerusalem
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon
thee. 2 For, behold, the
darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people:
but the LORD shall arise upon
thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light,
and kings to the brightness of thy
[It’s Position again].
Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to pass,
that every one that is left of all the
nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go
from year to year to worship the King,
the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
And 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.
25 And the gates of it shall
not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
And they shall bring the glory and honour
of the nations into it.
It’s Habitation (Rev 21.24; 20.6; 5.9-10)
And 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.
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the
second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
and shall reign with him a thousand
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to
open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by
thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast
made us unto our God kings and priests:
and we shall reign on the earth.
