Revelation 21:15-27 And the one who spoke with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city and its gates and walls...
think about it.
Why is this city without a temple (21:22-23)? How do you think that will affect your worship then? What does it mean for your worship now? What do you learn here about God's grace and holiness?
As we finish out Revelation 21 we get an up close look at the new Jerusalem. An angel takes John in the spirit to a mountain and shows him the holy city. The description and details we're given about the city are a little mind boggling and oh so incredible. I love how John lists all the things that are part of this amazing city and that list is impressive to be sure. But then John focuses in on those thing that are not part of this city--no temple, no sun, no moon, no night.
So what does this description of new Jerusalem reveal to us about God? His holiness? Standards? Awesomeness? His Glory? Tami W.
