Crystallization-study of 1 & 2 Kings – Week 8 & 9
Growing into a Holy Temple in the Lord
The Temple of God Filled with the Glory of God
Rev. 21:1-7, 9-11, 22-24
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea is no more.
2 And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice out of the throne, saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will tabernacle with them, and they will be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4 And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death will be no more, nor will there be sorrow or crying or pain anymore; for the former things have passed away.
5 And He who sits on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said, Write, for these words are faithful and true.
6 And He said to me, They have come to pass. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give to him who thirsts from the spring of the water of life freely.
7 He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be God to him, and he will be a son to Me.
9 And one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and spoke with me, saying, Come here; I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
10 And he carried me away in spirit onto a great and high mountain and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, as clear as crystal.
22 And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
23 And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon that they should shine in it, for the glory of God illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
24 And the nations will walk by its light; and the kings of the earth bring their glory into it.
