The New Jerusalem Is Prepared As A Bride

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. (Revelation 21:1-2 NIV)

Over a thousand years from now, after Earth is destroyed, there will be a “new heaven and a new earth” for true believers in God and in His Son Jesus Christ. Believers will live in the New Jerusalem that will come down from heaven. This city is described as a bride, because those who live in it are especially prepared to be given to Jesus as His personal possession forever. All believers are part of the bride of Christ. This union between Jesus and the Church is something that cannot be completely comprehended at this time; marriage as we know it today is only a crude illustration of this great future.

Everyone who lives in this city will experience true love.
