The New Heaven and New Earth

The Eternal Feast of Tabernacles

21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth.{1} The former heaven and earth had passed away,{2} and there was no more sea. 2And I, Yochanan, saw the holy city,{1} the new Yerushalayim,{2} coming down from YHVH out of heaven,{3} prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.{4}

3Then I heard a great shout out of heaven, “Behold, the tabernacle of YHVH{1} is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and YHVH himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim!”{2}

The Final Restoration

21:4 YHVH shall wipe away all the tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death,{1} nor sorrow, nor crying; neither shall there be any more pain{2} – for those former things have all passed away. 5He who sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new!” He instructed me to write, “These words are faithful and true!” 6Then he cried, “IT IS FINISHED! I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the end. To him who thirsts I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7He who overcomes shall inherit all things – and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be my son!

The Eternally Excluded

21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone – which is the second death!

The Eternal Home of the Bride Described

9Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came to me and said, “Come here, and I will show you the bride – the Lamb’s wife.”{1} 10He carried me away in the spirit to a great and lofty mountain and showed me the great city, the holy Yerushalayim, descending out of heaven from YHVH. 11It radiated with the glory of YHVH, and its light was like the most precious jasper stone, as clear as crystal. 12It had a great, high wall about it, and it had twelve gates, and at the gates were twelve angels. On the gates were written names, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel. 13On the east, three gates; on the north, three gates; on the south, three gates; and on the west, three gates. 14The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15The angel who talked with me had a golden rod to measure the city, and the gates, and the wall. 16The city was perfectly square – the length was as large as the breadth. He measured the city with the rod, and it was twelve thousand furlongs [about one thousand three hundred and sixty-four miles in each direction]. The length and the breadth and the height of it were equal. 17Then he measured the wall, and it was a hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man; that is how the angel measured it.{1} 18The wall was constructed of jasper, and the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. 19The foundations of the city wall were garnished with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; and the twelfth, an amethyst. 21The twelve gates were twelve pearls. Every single gate was identical. The city street was pure gold, as transparent as glass.”

{21:9.1} This is the description of the palace residence of the Lamb and his wife. The inhabitants are the Lamb and his wife; the wife being the description of the body of believers, which is loved in the deepest way a human can understand – the love a man has for his wife. The “Lamb’s wife” is not female, but only this metaphor can approach the love Yeshua has for those for whom he willingly gave his life.

{21:17.1} The angel measured it as a man would measure it, but the Divine cubit (20.62 inches) is about 4 inches longer than an average man’s cubit, which is the distance from his elbow to the tip of his middle finger. If the angel’s cubit were the Divine cubit used in the Torah, the wall would have been about 250 feet tall.

21:22 I saw no Temple, because Adonay YHVH – El Shaddai – the Lamb is the Temple. 23The city has no need for the sun or moon to shine in it because the glory of YHVH lights it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. 24The nations of those who are saved shall walk in the light of it. The kings of the earth shall bring their glory and honor into it. 25The gates will not be shut at all – not by day – and there will not be any night there. 26The nations shall bring their glory and honor into the city, 27but there will never enter anything that defiles, or celebrates an abomination, or promulgates a lie. Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s scroll of life shall enter.
