A fantasy has not been told,
but truth which must be extolled.
A true account of eternal life and death
as revealed by God in Heaven
to the apostle John in a vision,
who committed the prophecy to parchment,
known as the unquestionable Revelation.
The day draws near when every eye
will see the birth of the new Earth.
The Holy City, New Jerusalem:
divine, brilliant, sovereign.
Believers will be struck with awe;
scorners – frozen to the core.
New Earth will supersede the old.
A vast transparent golden domicile*
with walls of jasper reaching into the sky,
its width and length equally long and wide.
Angelic beings will be placed
at each of the twelve pearl encrusted gates,
upon which will be inscribed
the twelve beloved tribes of Is-ra-el.
Twelve jewels: jasper, sapphires,
topaz and emeralds to name a few,
will garnish the foundations of the quad.
And carved within this glittering masterpiece,
The names of the beloved apostles of God.
It is here that El-Olam* will live amongst men.
God and the Lamb will illuminate the land
on this moonless, sunless Earth.
No temple will be necessary,
as Father and Son will be worshipped everywhere.
The city will never be closed.
Nothing impure will enter its gates.
Only those who bear His name
have entry into this divine place.
Those who are saved will see His face.
A crystal clear river – the Water of Life
will cascade from the great throne of God.
The streets of gold will be flanked by the Tree of Life
producing monthly, twelve different fruits,
and healing the nations with its leafy attributes.
In the city of God, there will be no death.
Evil and fear will not affect God’s children again,
and the Water of Life will see them blessed.
There will be no mourning, crying or pain
for He will make all things new again.
Unbelievers who claim
Jesus is not the Son of God,
the abominable, the murderers,
practitioners of the dark arts, idolaters and liars,
will face the second death
in the everlasting lake of fire.
Time is short, but there is hope for all
if we heed the Saviour’s call.
Seek Him, knock and He will open the door
to a life of forgiveness, grace and love, forevermore.
*2,200 square km.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. Rev. 22:12.
