The Heavenly City
Hebrews 11:16 —————— What has God prepared for His people?
Revelation 21:2 —————————————– Where is this city?
John 14:2 ———- What has Jesus prepared for us in the city of God?
Revelation 21:9-14 ——————— How did John describe this city?
Revelation 21:16 ———————- How large is the New Jerusalem?
NOTE: The size of the city is said to be “twelve thousand furlongs.”
A furlong is 1/8 of a mile, thus making the city 1,500 miles in
circumference or 375 miles long on each side. This would make the
capital of the new earth cover an area as large as Virginia, West
Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., and the western
half of Ohio combined.
Revelation 21:17 ——————– How high are the walls of this city?
NOTE: The walls of the city are 144 cubits high. A cubit can range
anywhere from 18 to 21 inches. Taking the smaller figure of 18 inches
would make these walls at least 216 feet high or about 20 stories.
Revelation 21:18-20 —— What are the walls and foundation made of?
Revelation 21:21 — What does the Bible say the streets and gates are?
Revelation 21:22 ——————— Why will there be no temple there?
Revelation 21:23 ———— From where does the city receive its light?
Revelation 21:27 ———————- Who are the residents of this city?
Revelation 22:1 ——————– What flows from the throne of God?
NOTE: This tree is said to bear 12 different types of fruit and to do so
once every month. This gives an even further insight to the
significance of Isaiah 66:22-23 that all of the redeemed will come
together to worship God “from one new moon to another.” Not only
will there be the weekly Sabbath gathering for worship, but apparently
there will be another special gathering once each month around the
tree of life.
Revelation 21:2 —————- Will this city always remain in heaven?
Revelation 20:9 — What happens when the city descends from heaven?

Isaiah 11:6-9 ——— Will there be any disharmony in the new earth?
1 Corinthians 13:12 —————– Shall we know one another there?
Revelation 21:3-5 — What is God’s promise concerning the new earth?
NOTE: Those who truly love Jesus will one day soon be able to walk
with him on golden streets, but in order to walk with him there, we
must first walk with him here. The question he asks is: “can two walk
together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). Is your life in
agreement with the will of God? Remember, heaven is a prepared
place for a prepared people. Won’t you begin now to make preparation
to become a part of God’s eternal family? Heaven is a free gift and is
based solely upon our response to God’s love and his will for our lives.
If you are not standing fully on the side of Christ Jesus, don’t you
think it is time you changed sides?
John 14:1-3 —————————— What did Jesus promise to do?
Matthew 24:36 ————– What did He say concerning His coming?
Luke 12:37-40 ——————- What did He say we should be doing?
Revelation 3:3 — Why did Jesus say we should watch for His coming?
Revelation 16:15 ————— Whom did Jesus say would be blessed?
1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 — Will His coming be a surprise to everyone?
Note: When Jesus comes, the unexpectedness of His coming brings
“sudden destruction” upon those who are not ready.
2 Peter 3:10-12 — Does His coming as a thief mean it will be secret?
Matthew 24:3 —- What does the Bible say happens when He comes?
Revelation 6:14-17 —- What happens to the mountains and islands?
Isaiah 24:20 —————- What impact will this have on the earth?
Revelation 16:20 ———— How drastic of a change will this cause?
NOTE: All of God’s people, not just a few, will rise to meet Him when
1 Corinthians 15:51-53 ———— How did Paul describe this event?
2 Thessalonians 2:8 — What happens to the wicked at Jesus’ return?
Revelation 1:7 —————– How many will witness Jesus’ coming?
NOTE: The Bible is very clear that the coming of Jesus will be a
literal, visible, audible, eminent event in which He shall be
accompanied by all of His holy angels. This glorious event, which will
be witnessed by everyone, shall be heralded by shouting and trumpets
blowing, and as the earth convulses every island and mountain shall
disappear, the righteous dead shall be raised, the wicked shall all be
destroyed, the righteous living shall be changed “in the twinkling of an
eye,” and all of the righteous shall rise “together” to meet the Lord in
the air. As can be seen the coming of Jesus will in no way be a
“secret,” sneaking in and out to snatch just a few Christians away.
DOESN’T THE BIBLE SAY SOME WILL BE TAKEN AND SOME LEFT?
Matthew 24:37-44 ——- What happened to the wicked at the flood?
NOTE: It was the wicked that were taken away at the flood, not the
righteous, and Jesus said this is what will happen when He returns.
Therefore, He says, watch and be ready for He will come when the
world is not expecting Him.
Luke 17:26-30 ——————— How does Luke describe this event?
NOTE: Just as there was no second chance at the time of the flood or
at Sodom and Gomorrah, there will be no second chance when Jesus
comes. These passages clearly reveal that to be taken means to be
destroyed and to be left means to be left alive. As with the flood all of
the wicked were taken away or destroyed, and only the righteous were
left alive. As with Sodom all of the wicked were destroyed and only Lot
and his family left.
