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.

Discussion for Revelation 21:2

  • I cracked the code to revelations 13:18. I know who the anti Christ's are and what is going to this earth specifically. Get ready. The lord is here and ready for spiritual war far. Who interested in helping the Lord supply blessings on his bride here on earth. God said we need cash because I do not have anything stored her on earth. He needs your help. I have no idea what he wants it for right now. I just have been rejected fom my church for sharing my phrophecy. Who says you are unable to not worship in your church until I hear a word from God. Hmm. He just did. Since when Is a religious ruler say I must look after my flock. Since when is man ever in charge of a flock. Would that be of God. He is the leader of all flocks. Not man. God looks after the best interests of his flocks. I guess I will move forward seeing I am not worthy to worship amongst them. No worries. I know. I know. I know. I am the chosen one. To God be the glory. He is here and ready to kick some butt. I am honored and humbled. Praise be to God.
