Everything New

21I saw Heaven and earth new-created. Gone the first Heaven, gone the first earth, gone the sea.G2532G1492G2537G3772G2532G2537G1093G1063G4413G3772G2532G4413G1093G3928G2532G2076G3756G2089G2281 2I saw Holy Jerusalem, new-created, descending resplendent out of Heaven, as ready for God as a bride for her husband.G2532G1473G2491G1492G40G4172G2537G2419G2597G575G2316G1537G3772G2090G5613G3565G2885G846G435 3I heard a voice thunder from the Throne: "Look! Look! God has moved into the neighborhood, making his home with men and women! They're his people, he's their God.G2532G191G3173G5456G1537G3772G3004G2400G4633G2316G3326G444G2532G4637G3326G846G2532G846G2071G846G2992G2532G2316G846G2071G3326G846G846G2316 4He'll wipe every tear from their eyes. Death is gone for good—tears gone, crying gone, pain gone—all the first order of things gone."G2532G2316G1813G3956G1144G575G846G3788G2532G2071G3756G2089G2288G3777G3997G3777G2906G3777G3756G2071G2089G4192G3754G4413G565 5The Enthroned continued, "Look! I'm making everything new. Write it all down—each word dependable and accurate."G2532G2521G1909G2362G2036G2400G4160G3956G2537G2532G3004G3427G1125G3754G3778G3056G1526G228G2532G4103 6Then he said, "It's happened. I'm A to Z. I'm the Beginning, I'm the Conclusion. From Water-of-Life Well I give freely to the thirsty.G2532G2036G3427G1096G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G1473G1325G1372G1537G4077G5204G2222G1432 7Conquerors inherit all this. I'll be God to them, they'll be sons and daughters to me.G3528G2816G3956G2532G2071G846G2316G2532G846G2071G3427G5207 8But for the rest—the feckless and faithless, degenerates and murderers, sex peddlers and sorcerers, idolaters and all liars—for them it's Lake Fire and Brimstone. Second death!"G1161G1169G2532G571G2532G948G2532G5406G2532G4205G2532G5332G2532G1496G2532G3956G5571G846G3313G1722G3041G3588G2545G4442G2532G2303G3603G1208G2288

The City of Light

9One of the Seven Angels who had carried the bowls filled with the seven final disasters spoke to me: "Come here. I'll show you the Bride, the Wife of the Lamb."G2532G2064G4314G3165G1520G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G1073G2033G2078G4127G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G1204G1166G4671G3565G721G1135 10He took me away in the Spirit to an enormous, high mountain and showed me Holy Jerusalem descending out of Heaven from God,G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1909G3173G2532G5308G3735G2532G1166G3427G3173G4172G40G2419G2597G1537G3772G575G2316 11resplendent in the bright glory of God. The City shimmered like a precious gem, light-filled, pulsing light.G2192G1391G2316G2532G846G5458G3664G3037G5093G5613G2393G3037G2929 12She had a wall majestic and high with twelve gates. At each gate stood an Angel, and on the gates were inscribed the names of the Twelve Tribes of the sons of Israel:G5037G2192G5038G3173G2532G5308G2192G1427G4440G2532G1909G4440G1427G32G2532G3686G1924G3739G2076G1427G5443G5207G2474 13three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, three gates on the west.G575G395G5140G4440G575G1005G5140G4440G575G3558G5140G4440G2532G575G1424G5140G4440 14The wall was set on twelve foundations, the names of the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb inscribed on them.G2532G5038G4172G2192G1427G2310G2532G1722G846G3686G1427G652G721 15The Angel speaking with me had a gold measuring stick to measure the City, its gates, and its wall.G2532G2980G3326G1700G2192G5552G2563G2443G3354G4172G2532G4440G846G2532G5038G846 16The City was laid out in a perfect square. He measured the City with the measuring stick: twelve thousand stadia, its length, width, and height all equal.G2532G4172G2749G5068G2532G3372G846G2076G5118G3745G2532G4114G2532G3354G4172G2563G1909G1427G5505G4712G3372G2532G4114G2532G5311G846G2076G2470 17Using the standard measure, the Angel measured the thickness of its wall: 144 cubits.G2532G3354G5038G846G1540G5062G5064G4083G3358G444G3603G32 18The wall was jasper, the color of Glory, and the City was pure gold, translucent as glass.G2532G1739G5038G846G2258G2393G2532G4172G2513G5553G3664G2513G5194 19The foundations of the City walls were garnished with every precious gem imaginable: the first foundation jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,G2532G2310G5038G4172G2885G3956G5093G3037G4413G2310G2393G1208G4552G5154G5472G5067G4665 20the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.G3991G4557G1623G4556G1442G5555G3590G969G1766G5116G1182G5556G1734G5192G1428G271 21The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate a single pearl. The main street of the City was pure gold, translucent as glass.G2532G1427G4440G1427G3135G1538G303G1520G4440G2258G1537G1520G3135G2532G4113G4172G2513G5553G5613G1307G5194 22But there was no sign of a Temple, for the Lord God—the Sovereign-Strong—and the Lamb are the Temple.G2532G1492G3756G3485G1722G846G1063G2962G2316G3841G2532G721G2076G3485G846 23The City doesn't need sun or moon for light. God's Glory is its light, the Lamb its lamp!G2532G4172G2192G3756G5532G2246G3761G4582G2443G5316G1722G846G1063G1391G2316G5461G846G2532G721G3088G846 24The nations will walk in its light and earth's kings bring in their splendor.G2532G1484G4982G4043G1722G5457G846G2532G935G1093G5342G846G1391G2532G5092G1519G846 25Its gates will never be shut by day, and there won't be any night.G2532G4440G846G2808G3364G2808G3364G2250G1063G2071G3756G3571G1563 26They'll bring the glory and honor of the nations into the City.G2532G5342G1391G2532G5092G1484G1519G846 27Nothing dirty or defiled will get into the City, and no one who defiles or deceives. Only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life will get in.G2532G1525G3364G1525G1519G846G3956G2840G2532G4160G946G2532G5579G1508G1125G1722G721G975G2222
