And I saw a new heaven and a new world.




The first heaven and world were all gone now and there was no more ocean.

And I, John, saw the special city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven all dressed up like a bride ready to be married.


And I heard a great big voice talking from heaven that said, Look, Now God’s house is with men and He will live with them, and they will be His people and God His very self will be with them and be their God.




And God will wipe away all the tears from their eyes.



And there won’t be any more death or anything dying at all.




There won’t be any more sadness or crying ever again, or any more pains, or hurting at all.




All that old stuff is gone.



The One that sat on the throne said, I am making everything all new again.




And He said to me: Write, because these words are true and always true to you.



He said, It is all done now. I am the First and I am the last, The start and the end.




I will give to any thirsty ones to drink from the fountain of life as much as they want.



The ones who win will get to own everything forever; and I will be his God and he will by my son.



The scared ones and ones that don’t believe in Jesus and the dirty, and yukky ones, and killers, and witches, and idol-makers, and all liars will have their part in the lake of fire that burns with fire and burning rocks.





One of the 7 angels that had the 7 little bottles of the last troubles came to talk to me.



He said, Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

And he carried me in the Spirit to a great and high mountain and showed me that great city, the special Jerusalem, coming out of heaven from God. It was all shiny bright with the very shiny brightness of God.




She shined like the most special and beautiful jewel, like a diamond, clear as crystal.



The city had a great high wall and twelve gates.




At the 12 gates stood 12 angels. The names written on the gates are the names of the 12 children of Israel.

Three gates were on the east and three gates on the north side of the city and three gates on the south side of the city and three gates on the west side of the city. The wall of the city had 12 floors under it, that it is built on. Each floor has the name of one of the first followers of Jesus that He picked.




And the city is as tall as it is wide, 1,500 miles tall.



The wall is very, very thick and it is made of jasper and the city is pure gold so pure like glass.


There are jewels decorating the foundations. All the most precious stones like emeralds and rubies and sapphires and amethysts make all the colors of the rainbow on its floors.



The 12 gates are each one great big pearl and the street is solid gold as clear as glass.



I didn’t see a temple there because the Lord God all-powerful and the Lamb are the temple.

And the city doesn’t need the sun to make light because the shiny brightness of God is its light and the Lamb are its light.

And the nations that were saved walk in its light and the kings of the world bring all of their honor and all their best stuff there.


The gates won’t ever be shut there in the day or in the night because there won’t be any more night.



Nothing bad can ever go into the city or anything that makes dirty or anything that tells lies or does bad stuff.


Only the ones whose names were written in the Lamb’s book of life get to go inside.
