HEAVEN PART 4 | HEAVEN AND THE NEW JERUSALEM

Heaven, Part 4 – August 27, 2023

Revelation 21:1 (NIV2011)
1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.

The current world will be destroyed and replaced
Application: This world’s temporariness
Example: Ancient ruins

Revelation 21:2-5 (NIV2011)
2  I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4  ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 5  He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Revelation 22:3 (NIV2011)
 The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.

The New Jerusalem will be the capital of the new world
 
The New Jerusalem
  • 1,500 miles wide, 1,500 miles long, 1,500 miles high (Rev. 21:16)
  • Enclosed by walls 216 feet thick (Rev. 21:17)
  • Strikingly beautiful (Rev. 21:18-21)
  • Rests on 12 foundations (Rev. 21:19-20)
  • 12 gates into the city (Rev. 21:21)
  • A great street of gold (Rev. 21:21)
  • Illuminated by the glory of God (Rev. 21:22-24)

What is NOT there:
Revelation 21:4 (NIV2011)
4  ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

There will be no more:
  • Death
  • Mourning
  • Crying
  • Pain

Revelation 21:6-8 (NIV2011)
6  He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.
7  Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8  But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”


There will be no more:
  • Death
  • Mourning
  • Crying
  • Pain
  • Thirst (unmet need)
  • Sin

What WILL BE there?
Revelation 21:2-3 (NIV2011)
2  I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.

God will dwell among His people
Example: Dating

Revelation 22:5 (NIV2011)
And they will reign for ever and ever.


We will live there forever

Closing:
Revelation 21:27 (NIV2011)
27  Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Lord’s Supper:
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (NIV2011) 

23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 
24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 
25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 
26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
