New Jerusalem Drawing

new-jerusalem-drawingMy children did a New Jerusalem drawing after reading the last two chapters of Revelation. The city was built as a cube, and it was lowered from the sky. Each of the sides of the city had three doors, for a total of twelve doors, representing the tribes of Israel. Each gate was made with a single pearl. And there was no need for any sun, because the glory of the Lord filled the city!

new-jerusalem-drawing-2The New Jerusalem is a proper city with buildings and mansions because Jesus said that He was going to prepare a place for us to live with Him. “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:4 KJV

The most delightful part of being in the New Jerusalem is being in the presence of God and the absence of sin. There will be no more crying and no more pain. To be in the presence of Jesus will be such exquisite joy!
