From the Day of Judgment we saw that there are two kinds of people
The self-righteous and the forgiving. The proud and the humble. “Pride turned angels into demons – Humility turns man into angels”. (St. Augustine)
There are those that say: “God it is all your fault, I did my best. Don’t blame it on me. It was you that allowed this mess, I did not chose to create myself.” We are all creating and recreating ourselves by the decisions we make.
What will you do? Will you pass the blame to others and to God? Or will you say “Yes, it was me that made these decisions. You tested me and I failed, please be merciful I am a sinner”. The ones that are truly sorry, repent and apologize to the ones that they hurt and those who want to come clean will be allowed to live on the new earth.
Revelation Chapter 21 & 22: “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.’” “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” “Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new’. “And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’” “And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.’” “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son”. . . . . What a privilege, what an honour!
“the holy city, new Jerusalem . . . . Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” If it is tabernacle or tent shaped, then it is in the shape of a gigantic pyramid. If it is pyramid shaped, then it looks like someone is copying this symbol, due to his lack of originality. “
“And the city lies foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: . . twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal . . . . . . And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, . . . . On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.”
How large is the city?
The United Kingdom with England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland has 242,900 square kilometer of land area. New Jerusalem is 12000 furlongs (1 furlong is circa 185 meter) or 12000 x 185 meter = or a little over 2200 kilometer length as well as width. Surface is length X width or 2200 x 2200 = 4,840,000 square kilometers. The base of New Jerusalem is 4,840,000 divide by 242,900 = 20, or twenty times the surface of the complete UK land area. India is the seventh-largest country in the world, with an area of 3,166,414 square kilometers, so it is 1½ times the size of India. It is however also 2200 km high, an airplane flies with an altitude of 10 kilometers. The city is most likely divided in into floors. Let’s take a generous guess and say that each floor is 10 kilometers high, then we end up with well over 200 floors. I don’t think that this city will be overpopulated. There will be plenty of space for all the believers of all ages. What an amazing city with incredible dimensions.
No monthly rent, water, gas or electricity bills, No council tax, no state tax, no income tax, no wealth and property tax.
No more religion in that city, this is Heaven on Earth!
“And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.”
Thank God, no temple, no church building, no denominations, no more religion, no more self-invented laws and religious regulations. Here shines only the Light of Love and here we will learn to love and appreciate each other in meekness and humility.
As Jesus prayed:“that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one” (John 17:22,23)
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9) Maybe you feel a little like the prophet Daniel.
“Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations (deep thoughts) much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart”. (Daniel 7:28)
