Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, "Look, God's home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever." Revelation 21:1-4
John, a disciple of Jesus, wrote the book of Revelation.
The scenes of Revelation take place both in heaven and on earth as the final days of history come to an end. The theme of the last book in the New Testament is very simple: God wins! Those who are His children through Jesus Christ will spend eternity in heaven.
How does God inspire John to describe the new heaven and new earth?
