GardenOfEden3

Revelation 21

Human history began in paradise…the Garden of Eden.

And it will all end in paradise..

.. the New Jerusalem.

v. 5 this sums up the last 2 ch’s of Revelation…all things will be new.

v. 6 “it is done”

What began in Genesis is brought to completion in Revelation.

Discuss the sermon outline about The New Jerusalem here.

GENESIS - REVELATION

  • 1:1 - Heavens & earth created - Rev. 21:1 - New heavens & earth.
  • 1:16 - Sun created - Rev. 21:23 - No need for the sun.
  • 1:5 - Night established - Rev. 22:5 - No night there.
  • 1:10 - The seas created - Rev. 21:1 - No more seas [exiled on Patmos!].
  • 3:14-17 - The curse announced - Rev. 22:3 - No more curse.
  • 3:19 - Death enters history - Rev. 21:4 - No more death.
  • 3:24 - Man driven from paradise - Rev. 22:14 - Man restored to paradise.
  • 3:17 - Sorrow & pain began - Rev. 21:4 - No more tearsor pain

Don’t you look forward to going to heaven? “What a day that will be…”

10 Facts about The New Jerusalem:

Rev. 21:9-22:5

  1. Heaven is a Real Place.
  2. Heaven is a Remaining Place.
  3. Heaven is a Readied Place.
  4. Heaven is a Place of Relationship.
  5. Heaven is a Place of Relief.
  6. Heaven is a Place of Refreshing.
  7. Heaven will be a Restricted Place.
  8. Heaven is a Place of Riches.
  9. Heaven is a Place of Righteousness.
  10. Heaven is a Place of Refuge.

4 things that won’t be there:

Rev. 22-27

  • No Sanctuary - Rev. 22: Why no temple? Because the sanctuary localizes and confines God to 1 location…but all Heaven will be filled w/ His glory!
  • No Shadows - Rev. 23: The light will be everywhere, the night will be vanquished!
  • No Secrets - Rev. 24: We live in a war.
  • No sinners.

This is the capital of the eternal kingdom. God has, by this time, destroyed our universe, our heaven and earth, and this is a new one. And this is the capital city!

Will there be room for everyone? Sure! First of all, not as many will be there as is commonly believed. [“narrow is the way, few there be that find it.”] But it will be 1,500 miles squared…a perfect cube…in other words, it’s that high, that long, that wide! There would be room for every human who has ever lived if they had all been saved.

(to be continued)......You remain in our hearts and prayers.
