THE CITY NEW JERUSALEM
Brothers if you click on the above youtube url you will see a video of the twelve stones which will make up the foundation for The CITY NEW JERUSALEM which will come down from heaven to new earth. We are told here in Revelation 21:18-26.how that the great city shall look.
Brothers we are also told the length, width and height of the great city. It shall be aprox. 1500 miles long, by 1500 miles wide, and 1500 miles high.
Please allow me to put the size of The City New Jerusalem into perspective for you.By earthly standards thousands of the largest aircraft on earth could fly within the walls of this great city.
Just imagine, if you will, how far it is from where you are now to go west 1500 miles, then turn north traveling 1500 miles, then east for another 1500 miles, now go south 1500 miles.
Brothers you have just walked around the outside wall of this great city. Now if you can imagine a ladder long enough to climb from the ground to the top of the wall you will have climbed 1500 miles high.
Wow! Is the size of this great City New Jerusalem sinking into your imagination. We have nothing on earth to compare this image too.
Now add a smaller wall which also covers the same distance. This wall stands in front of the before mentioned wall of the city.
This smaller wall is 1500 miles square, and aprx. 21 stories high.
We are told that there are twelve gates leading into The City New Jerusalem. Imagine now that each gate will be 1 giant Pearl. WOW!!! Now see in your mind the beautiful stones listed below surrounding the entire city. Don't forget the streets of gold inside the city, and many, many more precious stones which make up the city itself.
This great city is where God himself will come, and reside along with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The bible tells us that He will live here forever, and that He will reside among us.
