Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 21:2


21:2 And I saw the holy city - The new heaven, the new earth, and the new Jerusalem, are closely connected. This city is wholly new, belonging not to this world, not to the millennium, but to eternity. This appears from the series of the vision, the magnificence of the description, and the opposition of this city to the second death, #Rev 20:11|,12; 21:1,2,5,8,9; 22:5. Coming down - In the very act of descending.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 21:2


Re 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem. The glorified and heavenly Church, pure and beautiful as a bride prepared for the bridegroom. This chapter presents a vision of the final condition of the redeemed and triumphant church. The vision points out the contrast between the beginning and the final condition of our race. The career of man began in a garden, the fitting home of a race few in numbers. It ends, as revealed by the prophet, in a city, the home where multitudes gather. Of this city Jerusalem was a type. The redeemed and holy Church, washed by the Savior's blood, and obedient to his will as a faithful bride to her husband, is the new Jerusalem.

    I think if a lot of people would read chapter 21 of revelations and take it at what it says ! then if the people would read in Gods own word that no one will go up into heaven but that heaven will come down ! then people would know where their life is going.

    My favorite chapter in the Bible

    This chapter in Revelation touches an important aspect of our Christian journey: Enduring to the end Longsuffering and ultimately Victory. For verse 7 states clearly: He that overcometh shall inherit all things and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
