The Revelation Of Jesus Christ: “The holy city, New Jerusalem”

Revelation 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.”

John sees the eternal abode of the Lord and His people presented symbolically as a city that he describes as “holy” and gives to it the title “New Jerusalem”.  These descriptions by John teach us several truths about our dwelling place throughout eternity.

When John describes the city as “holy”, he is saying that this city is separated from sin and dedicated to the use of Christ and His people.   When he calls the city “New Jerusalem” he is telling us that this city, although different from the earthly city of Jerusalem, shares many similarities with it.

Some of those similarities include:

  1. the worship of the Lord takes place within it.
  2. the presence and dwelling place of the Lord is found in it.
