I looked and I could hardly believe my eyes! Everything was new: the earth was gone; the sea was gone; even the heavens had passed away. Yet, I saw Jerusalem, the holy city, descending from above, from God. It was beautiful! She was prepared as a bride prepared for her groom.
And a voice said: See God has come to live with his people:
- they will be his people
- God will be with them
- He will wipe away their tears!
- Death will be no more!
- No more reason to mourn; no more reason to cry.
- Nothing to cause pain!
