But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.
Have you ever thought about what it will be like after Jesus comes to Earth again as our King coming to establish his kingdom forever? How much do you know about the new earth?
Question 1: What will NOT be part of Jesus’ kingdom? (Revelation 21: 4, 22:4)
Question 2: What is the new Jerusalem called? (Revelation 21: 2)
Question 3: What jewels will we see in the new Jerusalem? (Revelation 21: 18-21)
Question 4: What will the streets be made of? (Revelation 21: 22)
Question 5: What will be on each side of the river that will flow through the middle of the city? (Revelation 22: 1-2)
How did you do? When Jesus reigns as our King, there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. There will be no more night, and we will never need a lamp or even the sun, for our light will come from God. The new Jerusalem, the Holy city, will come down from heaven, just as a bride walks down the aisle towards the groom. How cool to see that! Jewels such as sapphires, emeralds, amethyst, and pearls will be used to make the city beautiful, while the streets will be made of pure gold. The tree of life will stand on each side of the river and will bear fruit for us to eat and leaves to heal all the nations.
Someday, and God alone knows exactly when, Jesus will come again—not as a baby, but as our King. He will dazzle us with a new heaven and a new earth. He will invite us to enjoy his perfect creation and to live with him there forever. We will actually see Jesus face to face—it takes one’s breath away just imagining how awesome that will be!!
