The City In Heaven

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 21.
We commonly read Revelation 21 and 22 as pictures of heaven. What the last two chapters of the Bible actually show is the city located in heaven. John began by saying, “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea (Revelation 21:1). The old system will pass away, but God will bring in a new one, comprised of a new heaven and a new earth. Then see what John saw next, “Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (v. 2). Did you see what John saw? He saw a city, “coming down out of heaven.” Then he saw the city, not the entirety of heaven itself.
Read Revelation 21 with your mind’s eye and see the glorious city of heaven, and then wonder to yourself what the rest of heaven must be like.
