What does the Bible really teach about heaven, and what is heaven’s relationship to earth? In this video we explore the surprising biblical viewpoint that heaven and earth were meant to overlap, and how Jesus is on a mission to bring them together once and for all.

HEAVEN & EARTH: (THM)
All Things Made New
1 Now aI saw a new heaven and a new earth, bfor the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, 1John, saw athe holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared bas a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, athe tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4 a“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; bthere shall be no more death, cnor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then aHe who sat on the throne said, b“Behold, I make all things new.” And He said 1to me, “Write, for cthese words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, a“It1 is done! bI am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. cI will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
7 “He who overcomes 1shall inherit all things, and aI will be his God and he shall be My son.
8 a“But the cowardly, 1unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in bthe lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
The New Jerusalem
9 Then one of athe seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came 1to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you bthe 2bride, the Lamb’s wife.”
10 And he carried me away ain the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me bthe 1great city, the 2holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 ahaving the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a stone, clear as crystal.
12 Also she had a great and high wall with atwelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them,which are the names of the of the children of Israel:

13 athree gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and aon them were the 1names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he who talked with me ahad a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.
16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand 1furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.
17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.
18 The construction of its wall was of ; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.
19 aThe foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was , the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth , the seventh chrysolite, the eighth , the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.
21 The twelve gates were twelve apearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. bAnd the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem
22 aBut I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
23 aThe city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine 1in it, for the 2glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.
24 aAnd the nations 1of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor 2into it.
25 aIts gates shall not be shut at all by day b(there shall be no night there).
26 aAnd they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into 1it.
27 But athere shall by no means enter it anything 1that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s bBook of Life.
The River of Life
1 And he showed me aa 1pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 aIn the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was bthe tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were cfor the healing of the nations.
3 And athere shall be no more curse, bbut the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His cservants shall serve Him.
4 aThey shall see His face, and bHis name shall be on their foreheads.
5 aThere shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor blight of the sun, for cthe Lord God gives them light. dAnd they shall reign forever and ever.
The Time Is Near
6 Then he said to me, a“These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the 1holy prophets bsent His angel to show His servants the things which must cshortly take place.
7 a“Behold, I am coming quickly! bBlessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
8 Now I, John, 1saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, aI fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.
9 Then he said to me, a“See that you do not do that. 1For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.”
10 aAnd he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, bfor the time is at hand.
11 “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him 1be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”

17 And the Spirit and athe bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” bAnd let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
18 1For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: aIf anyone adds to these things, 2God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;
19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, aGod1 shall take away his part from the 2Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
I Am Coming Quickly
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be 1with you all. Amen.

1 GREAT is the LORD, and greatly to be praised In the acity of our God, In His holy mountain.
2 aBeautiful in 1elevation, The joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.
3 God is in her palaces; He is known as her refuge.
4 For behold, athe kings assembled, They passed by together.
5 They saw it, and so they marveled; They were troubled, they hastened away.
6 Fear atook hold of them there, And pain, as of a woman in birth pangs,
7 As when You break the aships of Tarshish With an east wind.
