Now, let’s look at our text again: Revelation 21:1-8.
THE BEAUTY OF HEAVEN.
There will be WALLS verses 12, 17-18.
There will be FOUNDATIONS verse 19.
The 12 foundations of the city not only have 12 names for the 12 apostles, but also 12 different precious stones. Light is required.
There are basically 3 colors Red, Blue and yellow make up all other colors. These stones express in human terms the beauty of the city.
The costliest of all human possessions are precious stones.
Here is a bonus in verse 23, think of it. In the Old Testament Tabernacle, the Lamp stand was a picture of Christ, here He is the lamp stand.
There will be GATES VERSE 21.
Gates are not for protection, but a picture of the Brides. Purchased at a great price.
Notice it is made up of pearl. Christ could not be that pearl, because He cannot be purchased. We are the pearl of great price Mt. 13:45-46.
THE BLESSING OF HEAVEN.
The blessing is that some things will not be there: curse, death tears, sorrow, etc. There will be no night or sin there.
THE BELIEVERS IN HEAVEN.
Who is going to be there? All of our loved ones. The question tonight is, “are you going to be there?” Praise God, I will be there!
