Heavenly Jerusalem is on Earth from God

John was carried away in spirit onto a high mountain (Rev. 21:10). In this setting he was shown “the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.”

God wanted to show New Jerusalem to John, so He sent an angel to him (21:9) to invite John to come. John responded, was in his human spirit, was carried away to a great and high mountain, and saw the holy city, Jerusalem. This seeing was at first a repeat of Revelation 21:2, but in this seeing (v. 10) the vision continued (v. 11-21) to show John much more about New Jerusalem.

Here are the recent posts on 21:2 which correspond with the latter half of 21:10.
First, John saw the city:
New JerusalemJohn Saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem

This Jerusalem is holy because God is holy:
New Jerusalem is Holy with God’s Holiness

This Jerusalem signifies God’s kingdom:
New Jerusalem is the City of the Great King

The name Jerusalem means foundation of peace:
New Jerusalem is the Foundation of Peace

This Jerusalem has the heavenly nature:
New Jerusalem is Heavenly, On Earth

This Jerusalem has come out of heaven
and is on earth and is from God:
New Jerusalem is on Earth from God

Thank the Lord for all the wonderful characteristics of New Jerusalem!
