The New Jerusalem

The greatest landmark of the future, the New Jerusalem, will be a city of incredible beauty. In Revelation 21, the apostle John describes some of its breathtaking features, such as light “like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal” (Revelation 21:11); its 12 magnificent foundations; a great jasper wall over 200 feet tall with 12 glorious gates, three on each side, made of massive pearls; and the foundations of the wall decorated with “all kinds of precious stones” (verse 19).

The city itself—and not just its streets—is “pure gold, like clear glass” (verse 18). Besides being stunningly beautiful, the city is also of monumental proportions, much larger than any city currently on this earth. In John’s vision, it is measured out at 12,000 furlongs in length, width, and height—a perfect cube 1,500 miles in each dimension!
