Let’s continue our study of the new Jerusalem on the new earth. In my opinion, God is not describing a physical structure. Believers won’t be living in a city that is physically made of jasper, pearl, granite, and gold. These descriptions are symbolic. They describe the glorious presence of God and the state of living with him forever and ever.

Revelation 21:11 I (Apostle John) shone with the GLORY OF GOD, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

The glorious presence of God will dwell with Apostle John and all believers, casting a luster on them. Gods glory is compared to a jasper stone, clear and pure.

Next week, we will study the high walls and twelve gates of the new Jerusalem.

Thank you so much for studying. God bless.
