There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying

Revelation 21:1-12, 14-16, 18-23, 25-27

Revelation 21:2

After the general judgment comes the full glory of the church, which is here represented as a heavenly city, or a bride in her marriage dress.

Revelation 21:8

fearful or cowardly

Revelation 21:9-11

The city shone in dazzling light a vision of brightness, such as never before was seen of mortal eye.

Revelation 21:12, 14-16

The vision was inconceivably grand, the city seemed to stand on such an eminence, and its buildings reared their stately heads so high aloft, that it was as high as it was broad; and yet its breadth was three hundred and seventy-five miles. This gives us a glimpse of inconceivable vastness and sublimity. The number of the redeemed must be immense to need such a dwelling-place.

Revelation 21:21

The unutterable splendour and grandeur of the church triumphant blazes before us in these dazzling metaphors.

Revelation 21:22, 23, 25-27

How repeatedly in this chapter is falsehood branded as a dreadful sin! This should warn us to be truthful in all things, lest we be shut out of heaven.
