       1. HEAVEN IS REAL!--IT'S NOT JUST A FANCY DREAMLAND WAY OFF IN OUTER SPACE SOMEWHERE, but an even more amazing Dream City that's going to come down from God, out of space, to a beautiful renewed Earth! And God is going to come down & live with us, & we with Him, in that Heavenly City! (Rev.21:1-3)
       2. THE LORD LIFTED SOME OF HIS PROPHETS UP IN THE SPIRIT & TOOK THEM ON A GUIDED TOUR, A SPIRIT TRIP, OF THIS GREAT CITY, & they wrote in the Bible & told us all about its size, shape, colours & even the materials that it's made of!
       3. LET'S READ WHAT ST. JOHN THE APOSTLE SAID ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL PLACE: "And He carried me away in the spirit & showed me that great City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of the Heavens. And its light was like a precious stone, even like a diamond, clear as crystal! And the City was pure gold that is clear as glass!" (Rev.21:2,10,11,18)
       4. HE GOES ON TO SAY THAT THE BOTTOM OF THIS GREAT CITY FROM SPACE IS A PERFECT SQUARE, 1500 MILES LONG & 1500 MILES WIDE! Its peak is equal to its length & width, reaching 1500 miles high into the sky! Just think how beautiful it will be!--A gigantic, mountain-shaped, pyramid-shaped City of clear crystal gold, standing on the Earth 275 times taller than the World's tallest mountain, Mt. Everest!--How Heavenly! (Rev.21:16)
       5. "AND IT HAD A WALL GREAT & HIGH, & TWELVE GATES, & AT THE GATES TWELVE ANGELS." (Rev.21:12)--There was an angel guarding each gate! The fact that the City has a big tall wall & gates guarded by angels shows that there will be people outside the City who will not yet be able to enter in or enjoy its wonders--The as yet unsaved
       6. "AND THERE WERE NAMES WRITTEN ON THE GATES, which are the names of the Twelve Tribes of the Children of Israel. And the wall of the City had twelve foundations"--or twelve levels--"& in them are the names of the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb." (Rev.21:12-14)
       7. ON EACH OF THE GATES IS A NAME OF ONE OF THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL, which is God's way of honouring the Jews who were faithful & who have believed in & obeyed the Lord. He also honours the original Twelve Apostles for their great work of starting His Church.--He puts their names on the twelve different layers of the jeweled wall!
       8. ST. JOHN SAYS THAT AN ANGEL MEASURED THE WALL WHILE HE WAS THERE, & IT WAS 216 FEET HIGH! Its twelve 18-foot-high levels are each made of a different kind of precious stone or jewels, like diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc! (Rev.21:17-20) Because this 1500-mile-long wall runs in a square around the base of the City, its total length is 6,000 miles!--Just imagine, 6,000 miles of gigantic diamonds, 6,000 miles of emeralds, rubies etc.! Man has never seen such beauty!
       9. "AND THE TWELVE GATES WERE TWELVE PEARLS; every gate was one pearl!" (Rev.21:21) Can you imagine the gates for such a City, whose wall is 216 feet high? They would be gigantic!--Pearls such as this World has never seen!
       10. "AND THE NATIONS OF THEM WHICH ARE SAVED SHALL WALK IN THE LIGHT OF IT." (Rev.21:24)--Inside the great Heavenly City is where all of God's saved Children will live with Him forever!
       11. "AND THE KINGS OF THE EARTH DO BRING THEIR GLORY & HONOUR INTO IT." (Rev.21:24) Outside the City, on the renewed Earth, there will be whole nations of people who have been raised from the dead, have stood before God's Great Judgement Throne & have been allowed by Him to live on the beautiful, remade, Garden-of-Eden-like Earth! (Rev.21:24-26; 22:2)
       12. "AND THE GATES OF THE CITY SHALL NOT BE SHUT AT ALL BY DAY: for there shall be no night there!" (Rev.21:25) This wonderful Heavenly City will be open 24 hours a day!--Its citizens need no sleep!
       13. "AND THERE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO IT ANYONE EXCEPT THEY WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE." (Rev.21:27) Only the saved, those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life, will be allowed to enter through its pearly gates!--How beautiful! How wonderful!--Nothing unclean there!--No dirty city streets, no violence, no crime!--Not Sin City, as most of man's cities are today, but the Holy City of God!--The pure City, the beautiful City!--Everything just spotless & clean, sinless & beautiful! What a wonderful place!--Heaven on Earth!
       14. THE SAVED WILL FLOW IN & OUT OF THOSE 12 GIGANTIC GATES OF PEARL, entering in to enjoy the wonders & joys of the Heavenly City, & going out with the "leaves from the Trees of Life for the healing of the nations". (Rev.22:2) They will be helping & healing & teaching those outside about the Lord & His Love & His ways, that they also may learn to know & love the Lord.--So that one day, all the people who are in His Book of Life will finally know & love the Lord & be members of His Kingdom of Love!
       15. WILL YOU BE ABLE TO PASS THROUGH THOSE GATES OF PEARL TO FREELY ENJOY THE HEAVENLY CITY & ITS WONDERS? Are you saved? If you're not sure, you can be sure by entering God's Heavenly Kingdom right now in the spirit! All you have to do is receive Jesus Christ, His Son, into your heart. Jesus said, "I am the Door. If any man enter in by Me, He shall be saved." (Jn.10:9) Jesus saves!
       16. YOU CAN ENTER A WONDERFUL WORLD OF HEAVENLY HAPPINESS, LOVE & PEACE RIGHT NOW JUST BY PRAYING THIS SIMPLE PRAYER: "Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all my sins. I believe that You are the Son of God & that You died for me, & I now open the door of my heart & I ask You, Jesus, to please come in & give me Your free gift of Eternal Life. Help me to love You & to love others by telling them about You & Your Love. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
