John Saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem

In Revelation 21:1 there is a new heaven and a new earth. In 21:2 John says “And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”

NewJerusalemVerse 2 begins with And because the bringing forth of the new heaven and new earth allow New Jerusalem to come out of heaven and be on earth.

John saw New Jerusalem almost two thousand years ago. He saw it because, in God’s eternal view, everything is complete. In Revelation John says 47 times “I saw”.

God is the Beginning and the End (Rev. 21:6). Whatever God purposes to do, He accomplishes. Unlike human endeavors, with God there is no uncertainty, no question about success. God already sees the finished product and we too will see it.

When we believe into the Lord Jesus Christ, we enter into a spiritual realm where everything is certain. Yes, in our human realm we do not see it, but we do believe God’s word; “faith is the substantiation/confidence/assurance…of things not seen” (Heb. 11:1). Gradually He is renewing us, working the eternal spiritual realities into us to become our constitution.

John saw New Jerusalem because he was in spirit and on a high mountain (Rev. 21:10), outside and above the natural human realm. We need the same experience. Lord, bring me in spirit onto a mountain to see New Jerusalem!
