The New Jerusalem

21Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone.G2532G1492G2537G3772G2532G2537G1093G1063G4413G3772G2532G4413G1093G3928G2532G2076G3756G2089G22812And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.G2532G1473G2491G1492G40G4172G2537G2419G2597G575G2316G1537G3772G2090G5613G3565G2885G846G4353I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, "Look, God's home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with themc.G2532G191G3173G5456G1537G3772G3004G2400G4633G2316G3326G444G2532G4637G3326G846G2532G846G2071G846G2992G2532G2316G846G2071G3326G846G846G23164He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever."G2532G2316G1813G3956G1144G575G846G3788G2532G2071G3756G2089G2288G3777G3997G3777G2906G3777G3756G2071G2089G4192G3754G4413G5655And the one sitting on the throne said, "Look, I am making everything new!" And then he said to me, "Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true."G2532G2521G1909G2362G2036G2400G4160G3956G2537G2532G3004G3427G1125G3754G3778G3056G1526G228G2532G41036And he also said, "It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life.G2532G2036G3427G1096G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G1473G1325G1372G1537G4077G5204G2222G14327All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.G3528G2816G3956G2532G2071G846G2316G2532G846G2071G3427G52078"But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."G1161G1169G2532G571G2532G948G2532G5406G2532G4205G2532G5332G2532G1496G2532G3956G5571G846G3313G1722G3041G3588G2545G4442G2532G2303G3603G1208G22889Then one of the seven angels who held the seven bowls containing the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come with me! I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."G2532G2064G4314G3165G1520G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G1073G2033G2078G4127G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G1204G1166G4671G3565G721G113510So he took me in the Spiritc to a great, high mountain, and he showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1909G3173G2532G5308G3735G2532G1166G3427G3173G4172G40G2419G2597G1537G3772G575G231611It shone with the glory of God and sparkled like a precious stone—like jasper as clear as crystal.G2192G1391G2316G2532G846G5458G3664G3037G5093G5613G2393G3037G292912The city wall was broad and high, with twelve gates guarded by twelve angels. And the names of the twelve tribes of Israel were written on the gates.G5037G2192G5038G3173G2532G5308G2192G1427G4440G2532G1909G4440G1427G32G2532G3686G1924G3739G2076G1427G5443G5207G247413There were three gates on each side—east, north, south, and west.G575G395G5140G4440G575G1005G5140G4440G575G3558G5140G4440G2532G575G1424G5140G444014The wall of the city had twelve foundation stones, and on them were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.G2532G5038G4172G2192G1427G2310G2532G1722G846G3686G1427G652G72115The angel who talked to me held in his hand a gold measuring stick to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.G2532G2980G3326G1700G2192G5552G2563G2443G3354G4172G2532G4440G846G2532G5038G84616When he measured it, he found it was a square, as wide as it was long. In fact, its length and width and height were each 1,400 milesc.G2532G4172G2749G5068G2532G3372G846G2076G5118G3745G2532G4114G2532G3354G4172G2563G1909G1427G5505G4712G3372G2532G4114G2532G5311G846G2076G247017Then he measured the walls and found them to be 216 feet thickc (according to the human standard used by the angel).G2532G3354G5038G846G1540G5062G5064G4083G3358G444G3603G3218The wall was made of jasper, and the city was pure gold, as clear as glass.G2532G1739G5038G846G2258G2393G2532G4172G2513G5553G3664G2513G519419The wall of the city was built on foundation stones inlaid with twelve precious stones.c the first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,G2532G2310G5038G4172G2885G3956G5093G3037G4413G2310G2393G1208G4552G5154G5472G5067G466520the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.G3991G4557G1623G4556G1442G5555G3590G969G1766G5116G1182G5556G1734G5192G1428G27121The twelve gates were made of pearls—each gate from a single pearl! And the main street was pure gold, as clear as glass.G2532G1427G4440G1427G3135G1538G303G1520G4440G2258G1537G1520G3135G2532G4113G4172G2513G5553G5613G1307G519422I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.G2532G1492G3756G3485G1722G846G1063G2962G2316G3841G2532G721G2076G3485G84623And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light.G2532G4172G2192G3756G5532G2246G3761G4582G2443G5316G1722G846G1063G1391G2316G5461G846G2532G721G3088G84624The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the world will enter the city in all their glory.G2532G1484G4982G4043G1722G5457G846G2532G935G1093G5342G846G1391G2532G5092G1519G84625Its gates will never be closed at the end of day because there is no night there.G2532G4440G846G2808G3364G2808G3364G2250G1063G2071G3756G3571G156326And all the nations will bring their glory and honor into the city.G2532G5342G1391G2532G5092G1484G1519G84627Nothing evilc will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty—but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.G2532G1525G3364G1525G1519G846G3956G2840G2532G4160G946G2532G5579G1508G1125G1722G721G975G2222

22Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.G2532G1166G3427G2513G4215G5204G2222G2986G5613G2930G1607G1537G2362G2316G2532G7212It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruitc, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.G1722G3319G4113G846G2532G2532G1782G1782G4215G3586G2222G4160G1427G2590G591G846G2590G2596G1538G1520G3376G2532G5444G3586G1519G2322G14843No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him.G2532G2071G3756G2089G3956G2652G2532G2362G2316G2532G721G2071G1722G846G2532G846G1401G3000G8464And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads.G2532G3700G846G4383G2532G846G3686G1909G846G33595And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.G2532G2071G3756G3571G1563G2532G5532G3756G3088G2192G2532G5457G2246G3754G2962G2316G5461G846G5461G2532G936G1519G165G1656Then the angel said to me, "Everything you have heard and seen is trustworthy and true. The Lord God, who inspires his prophetsc, has sent his angel to tell his servants what will happen soon."G2532G2036G3427G3778G3056G4103G2532G228G2532G2962G2316G40G4396G649G846G32G1166G846G1401G3739G1163G1722G5034G1096

Jesus Is Coming

7"Look, I am coming soon! Blessed are those who obey the words of prophecy written in this bookc."G2400G2064G5035G3107G5083G3056G4394G5127G9758I, John, am the one who heard and saw all these things. And when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me.G2532G1473G2491G991G5023G2532G191G2532G3753G191G2532G991G4098G4352G1715G4228G32G3588G1166G3427G50239But he said, "No, don't worship me. I am a servant of God, just like you and your brothers the prophets, as well as all who obey what is written in this book. Worship only God!"G2532G3004G3427G3708G3361G1063G1510G4675G4889G2532G4675G80G4396G2532G5083G3056G5127G975G4352G231610Then he instructed me, "Do not seal up the prophetic words in this book, for the time is near.G2532G3004G3427G4972G3361G3056G4394G5127G975G3754G2540G2076G145111Let the one who is doing harm continue to do harm; let the one who is vile continue to be vile; let the one who is righteous continue to live righteously; let the one who is holy continue to be holy."G91G91G2089G2532G4510G4510G2089G2532G1342G1344G2089G2532G40G37G208912"Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds.G2532G2400G2064G5035G2532G3450G3408G3326G1700G591G1538G5613G846G2041G207113I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G4413G2532G207814Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life.G3107G4160G846G1785G2443G846G2071G1849G1909G3586G2222G2532G1525G4440G1519G417215Outside the city are the dogs—the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie.G1161G1854G2965G2532G5333G2532G4205G2532G5406G2532G1496G2532G3956G5368G2532G4160G557916"I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his thronec. I am the bright morning star."G1473G2424G3992G3450G32G3140G5213G5023G1909G1577G1473G1510G4491G2532G1085G1138G2986G2532G3720G79217The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Let anyone who hears this say, "Come." Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.G2532G4151G2532G3565G3004G2064G2532G191G2036G2064G2532G1372G2064G2532G2309G2983G5204G2222G143218And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the words of prophecy written in this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book.G1063G4828G3956G191G3056G4394G5127G975G1437G5100G2007G4314G5023G2316G2007G1909G846G4127G1125G1722G5129G97519And if anyone removes any of the words from this book of prophecy, God will remove that person's share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book.G2532G1437G5100G851G575G3056G976G5129G4394G2316G851G846G3313G575G976G2222G2532G1537G40G4172G2532G1125G1722G5026G97520He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon!"
