Revelation Chapter 21 Comments ...

< Back to Revelation Chapter 21

  • Bob Clark
    Rev. 21:24 is bothersome to me as it refers to the "kings of the earth bringing glory and honor into it". Why would the kings of the earth be exalted above anyone else? It's not a little disturbing.
  • Albert
    It shouldn't be bothersome to anyone, because the kings' of the earth is referring to the twelve apostles who are ruling in God's Kingdom, on earth. This verse is in reference to, AFTER Christ has returned and set up the Kingdom of God, on earth. The apostles will be the kings of the earth, and Christ will be, King of kings. It makes perfect sense.
  • Bob Clark
    I got to thinking after my initial reply. Judas Iscariot was one of the apostles and he will be exalted? The more I learn the more confusing it becomes.
  • Bob Clark
    Albert, you don't know how much I appreciate you. That's a load off. It took me at least a decade to get my mind around a "chosen people". And now I have to discern between "the children of Israel" and "those of the synagogue of Satan". The Bible says we will know them by their fruits so that is the discernment tool I am using. Thanks, brother.

    Bob Clark, Judas Iscariot was never exalted, he betrayed the Lord Jesus Christ our savior. He went to his own place, meaning hell. If the KJV bible scriptures are confusing to you, ask God to give you understanding and knowledge of the scriptures, he will.
    I'll have to. I'm getting conflicting answers on here.
  • Ann
    Robert Clark, Acts chapter 1: Verse 15, Peter is speaking to the disciples, and they all begin to pray and ask the Lord to choose between Joseph called Barsabas, and Matthias. The Lord chose Matthias to take the place Judas Iscariot. Also, learn Psalms 119:verse 18, I say this each day before reading my KJV Bible. You will be amazed at how the Lord will open your eyes to understand scripture.

    New heaven and new earth. New heaven will be like description in latter part of the chapter. New earth will not have Sun or ocean. At least that's what appears to be. No need for the sun for the Son will be all the light we need. No need for the sea or ocean for there will be no refuse or waste. Sea and sun will have served their purpose.
  • Preach
    Sorrows,conflicting passions, temptations, troubles, changes, and alarms from whatever can divide or interrupt the communion of saints will be banished from His people. The new heaven, and new earth: the new Jerusalem where God dwells will be our new home.God is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, as a pledge for the full performance. Perfect and direct communion with Father and Son.
  • Ed
    Compare Revelation 21:1 with Micah 7:19. In Micah 7:19, all sins will be cast into the depths of the sea. In Revelation 21:1, there will be no more sea. No more sea, no more sins. Thank you Lord Jesus.

    Rev 21: 1 the fire that consumes the wick is the same fire that purifies the earth. The New Jerusalem is a real prepared place for a prepared people. We have to study the Bible with prayer and a open he heart to receive what GOd is saying to us. The Bible will interpret itself if we just study it not just read it. Who better to say what it means that the person who spoke it. Be ready. He comes
  • Ruth
    I will continue striving to reside in that city, leaving all the earthly worries behind
  • Bruce
    It's a Metaphor. Like a Bottomless Cup of Coffee. Which Way does a Flat Earth spin? Have you Seen The Corners? Why Do The Buildings Slowly Sink into The Ocean as You Drive away in a Boat? Have You Seen The Other side of The World? Anyone Live there? Does The Water flow Off The Edge or Leak Through The Bottom. How Thick is this Earth? How Wide? How Long? How do Volcanos Work? Where's The Wind Go
  • Revelation 22:18,19
    For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
    And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    JOB 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
  • Carl
    The New Jerusalem would teeter on a Globe earth. The 4 corners would be miles high from the ground using a 8" per Square mile calculation. Also, the Bottomless pit is mentioned 7 times in the Scriptures (Revelation). How do you have that on a Globe 🌍?????
  • Vicki
    No, Mr. Dyer, everything in Revelation is NOT symbolic. The new Jerusalem will be a real, literal four square city. There’s no sense In describing such detail of something isn’t even real. It’s real. Too many folks want to symbolize what’s literal and vice versa. Literal is the first interpretation of the Bible unless it’s obvious it’s symbolic. You might read up on biblical hermeneutics.
  • John Dyer
    The things John describes in revelations are all symbolic there is no square city with walls of gems made of clear gold and gates made of pearls its figurative not literal. Im experiencing the truth firsthand and i assure you Gods kingdom is worth much more than any substance. God bless

    If we rely on Jehovah God and do our part to overcome trials and temptations then we can have his favor and be successful.
  • Dave
    Why do you all think the LORD is so weak? " new Jerusalem is within us". The New Jerusalem is EXACTLY what HE said. A 1500 mile cube within a diamond sphere. That "teacher" will regret his teaching some day as he is leading people, weak people, to doubt the LORD.
  • David
    Why do people who don't understand a passage always say it is subjective. The Word of the LORD is real and literal. Don't act as if a thing is too much or too great for the LORD. The city is as described as a 12,000 furlong (1500 mile) per side cube with a wall ( a sphere) of jasper ( diamond) around it. Do the math.same size as moon and the moon. Aliens? Try fallen angels to fool us
  • Charley
    hell is real 1st cor6-9-11 the cults do not believe it seventh adventists, jehovah witnesses
    scientology, buddhist, roman catholics believe in purgatory like russian orthodox

    seeker friendly churches, prosperity gospel moonies, i could go on ye must be born
    again or hell awaits people please repent john14-6 repent
  • Barbara
    Ron......The bible says "in hell he lifted his eyes"..speaking of the rich man....I don't think hell is a place where souls will burn and be's a place where there will be torment, but it's a place that people choose to go..your right that God doesn't torture and God doesn't send people to hell....That's why he sent his only son; so we wouldn't have to go to hell.....
  • Servant of the most high God
    Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. Very very clear Jesus is talking about PEOPLE going into everlasting fire. fire that never ends. Do Not Mock God
  • Servant of the most high God
    Luke 16:19-31 Must read Hell is very real and people are there. God help us all. Ron Linda brother sister read please pray your comments do not cause anyone to be led astray or be deceived Everyone who believes that unsaved dont go to Hell you need to WAKE UP!!!!!!! Luke 16:19-31 Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, .............!

    The Bible very clearly mentions an eternal Hell in several passages. All sin must be paid for because God is just. Sin is either paid for by eternal damnation in a literal Hell, or by the sacrifice of Christ.

    II Corinthians 5:6-8 expounds upon our souls being either in the body or with the Lord, and so we know that we will be in Heaven while our earthly bodies remain in the ground.
  • Bobby Hutchinson
    My Bible says there will only be one kind of people in Heaven, that will be the SAVED, the LOST will be in Hell. There will be people from all Nations there if they are SAVED. The 144,000 Jews will be the ones witnessing during the first 3 1/2yrs. of the tribulation period, when The LORD returns to earth. But remember the JEWS are God's Chosen People.
  • Jean
    Rev 21:4 and God shall wipe away etc etc
    and Isaiah 43:16-21 (v19) Behold I will do a new thing
    Are these 2 books talking about the same thing? eg
    When Israel and us will be together in the N/Jerusalem with Jesus being
    King of kings and Lord of Lords for 1,000 years?
  • Ron
    Hi Linda,. 144,000 is not literal, 12 x 12 is the number for the church or spiritual Israel, Jews and Gentiles, (the "new Jerusalem") the dead know nothing and wait in the grave like Lazarus did, (not heaven) for Christ's return to be "called" (resurrected). I agree God will not torture the unsaved in "hell". The second death (by fire) will consume them within seconds and sin will be gone forever.
  • Linda Morgan
    I believe that only 144.000 ( little flock) go to heaven and we will be in a death sleep. Until Jesus shouts " come out " at the time of the new paradise on earth. GOD wanted us all to live in a earthly paradise like Adam and Eve had. He wouldn't send us to heaven then send us back to earth. It's all in the bible.and he would not send people to a burning he'll. They will just die or stay dead.
