The structure, material, and function of the New Jerusalem

(12/29) |

Verses:Revelation 21:11 ~ 21:27
Key Verse:22-24. And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon that they should shine in it, for the glory of God illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. And the nations will walk by its light; and the kings of the earth bring their glory into it.
Topic:The structure, material, and function of the New Jerusalem
Emphasis:Verse 21: 21, footnote 1 says the golden street signifies the divine nature of God the Father as the source. Second, the twelve gates of the city are pearls, which signify the Son’s redemptive work. Third, the wall of the city and its foundation are built of precious stones, signifying the Spirit’s work of transforming the believers into precious stones for the building of God’s eternal habitation. These present to us a great picture of God mingled with mankind.
Meditate:From verse 22, “God and the Lamb are its temple”, verse 23, “the glory of God, its lamp is the Lamb”, and verse 24, “the nations will walk by its light”, please find out what the function of the city is.
Prayer:For the glory of the New Jerusalem I praise you. May the glorious vision set the direction of all my life.
Hymn:Hymn:976 Lo, the holy city,
