Revelation 21:9-21:27 9."And one of the seven angels came who had the seven bowls, who were filled with the seven last plagues; 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 to a mountain great and high, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem, , coming down out of heaven from God,
11. Having the glory of God: her luminary was like unto most precious stone, as jasper stone, clear as crystal, having a great high wall,
12. Having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written thereon which are those of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel.
13. On the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
14. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15. And the one who spoke with me had a gold measuring rod to measure the city, and its gate and its wall
16. And the city is four-square, and the length of it is as great as the breadth and the height thereof are equal. And he measured the city with a the reed 1,500 miles the length and the breadth and the height thereof are equal.
17. And He measured the wall of the city a hundred and forty four cubits (about 200-300 feet) by man's measure, which are also angelic measurements.
18. And the building of the wall thereof was jasper; and the city was pure gold like pure glass.
19. the foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every precious stone. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third chalcedony; the fourth emerald;
20. the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius, the seventh; gold stone; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth gold leek; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth; amethyst.
21 Ane the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each one of the twelve gates was a single pearl; and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass.
22.And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its Temple.
23. And the city had no need of the sun nor the moon, to shine upon it; for the glory of God did illumine it, and the Lamb is its lamp.
24 the nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it.
25. And its gates will in never be closed by day (for no night shall be there).
26. And they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.
27. And nothing unclean, and no one who practices abominations and a lie will ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life."
Isaiah 65:17-18 17."Behold Me! *Creating New Heavens and a new Earth, and the former will not be mentioned, neither will it be remembered or come to mind.

Great White Throne Judgment
Revelation 20:11-15 " 11. And I saw a Great White Throne, and Him who Who sat upon it, from His presence the earth and the heaven fled away; and no place was found for them.
12. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and the booklets were opened; and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life, and the dead were judged out of the things written in the booklets according to what they had done.
13. And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and hades gave up the dead in them; and they each were judged according to their works.
14. And death and hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
15. And if anyone was not found in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire."
Where is God's Great White Throne?
"The LORD is in His Holy Temple, The LORD's Throne is in Heaven; His eyes behold the sons of men."
Moses' Tent of Meeting is not God's Throne, but is a copy and shadow of the True Temple in Heaven. Reference: Hebrews 8:1-5
Putting the Puzzle
Stop right there!
You will need a red letter edition Bible to visually see this extremely important Fact: Which is that Jesus starts to answer these 3 questions, beginning in Matthew 24:4 and goes non-stop and doesn't finish speaking through to the end of Matthew 25 verse 46, finally concluding in Matt. 26:1 "And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings..."
Since Jesus talked without stopping, we need not to be rude and interrupt Him by just looking at one small part of what He said, but the full picture!
2 Peter 3:8-13 "8. But don't forget this one thing, beloved, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9. The Lord is not slack concerning the promise as some count slackness; but is long-suffering toward you, not intending that any perish but that all come to repentance.
10. But The Day of the Lord will come as a thief; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with dissolve with intense heat, and the earth and the works therein will be disclosed.
11. Seeing that all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy living and godliness.
12. *Looking for and hastening the presence of The Day of God by reason of which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat.
13. But according to His promise, we look for New Heavens and a New Earth, in which righteousness dwells."
I Corinthians 15:24-28 24."Then comes the end, when He (Christ) will deliver up the kingdom to the God and Father; when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power.
25. For He (Christ) must reign, until He puts all His enemies under His feet.
26. The last enemy to be abolished is death.
27. For He subjected all things under His feet. But when He says that all things are subjected, it is evident that He is excepted who did subject all things to Him.
28. And when all things have been subjected to Him, then 'The Son' will Himself be subjected to Him who did subject all things to Him, that God may be all in all

3. And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, "Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell among them, and they will be His peoples, and God Himself will be among them.
4. And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will be no more death, neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, the first things are passed away."
5. And He who sits on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new." And He says "Write: because 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 the one who thirsts of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7. The one who overcomes, will inherit these things; and I will be God to him, and he will be My son.
8. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, their part is the lake that burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death."
Isaiah 25:6-10 6."Then Yahweh of Hosts will prepare for all peoples, on this mountain,abanquet of fat things, full of marrow, of old wines well refined;
7. And in this mountain, He will swallow the covering of the veil, the veil that is upon all peoples, and the web that is woven over all the nations.

9. And it will be said in that day, Behold, this is our God! We have waited for for Him, that He might save us. This is Yahweh! We waited for Him, let us exult and rejoice in His salvation.

2. In the middle of its street. And on this side of the river and on that was a tree of life, bearing twelve fruits, yielding its fruit each month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3. And there was no more curse, and the Throne of God and of the Lamb shall be therein, and His bondmen will serve Him.
4. And shall see His Face; and His name shall be on their foreheads.
5. And there will be no more night; and they will have no need of the light of a lamp, nor the light of the sun; for the Lord God shall give them light: and they shall reign unto the ages of the ages.
