The New Earth

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.

THE END. 

*2,200 square km.

*Everlasting God.


And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. Rev. 22:12.
