In my last post I mentioned that there will be no temple in the “New Jerusalem” where true believers will spend eternity with God. In addition, there will be no sun nor moon either:
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. 24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. (Revelation 21:23-24 NIV)
The physical sun which shines down on Earth today does not give true light. It gives cheap, imitation light. The true light is the light that comes directly from God. It is this light that we will have direct access to when we are living in the future heaven. We will have no need for the sun and stars and other celestial entities, since we will have direct unlimited access to God Himself.
