Revelation 21


The final two chapters of Revelation show us an amazing picture of the end of sin and suffering. God creates the earth anew, and wipes away all tears, forever. The book of Genesis presents Eden lost. The book of Revelation unveils Eden restored. The description of the New Jerusalem follows, with twelve gates made of twelve pearls, streets of gold, and twelve foundations each of a different precious stone. “Sin and sinners are no more. The entire universe is clean. One pulse of harmony and gladness beats through the vast creation.”
