In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He [Jesus Christ -Yeshua] was in the beginning with God.


Upon creation of a new earth and heavens, God will also create a new city of Jerusalem. However, this city is not the same rebuilt city of Jerusalem that will be on earth during the Millennium. It will be prepared by God after the Millennium for the bride of Christ, which is the church. The church age saints, Jew and Gentile, whose names have been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will enter into the New Jerusalem. The Lord God Almighty and the Lamb of God will be the temple for the inhabitants. The resurrected saints will have glorified bodies and they will reign with God for eternity.

The New Jerusalem will have the glory of God as its light. She will be like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. The size of Jerusalem will be approximately 1,400 miles in length, width and height. To put its size into perspective, this is nearly the size of the earth's moon. The city will have twelve gates, each with a name from the twelve tribes of Israel. Three gates will be on each side of Jerusalem. There will be twelve foundations, each with a name from the twelve apostles of Christ. The foundations of the walls will be adorned with precious stones including jasper, sapphire, emerald, topaz, pearl, gold and many more. God Almighty and The Lamb of God, who is Jesus Christ, the Messiah, will be the city’s temple. Their glory will illuminate the city with no need for an external source of light.

In our current age, the age of grace, Jesus Christ is giving us all the opportunity to accept Him as our Lord and Savior. God’s gift of salvation is a choice. We either accept it or refuse it. By accepting the gift and trusting in Christ through faith and repentance, our names will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Those who reject God will be resurrected with the dead and judged at the Great White Throne. Their degree of punishment will be determined and they will then be cast into the lake of fire for eternity.
