The angel who talked to me held in his hand a gold measuring stick to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. When he measured it, he found it was a square, as wide as it was long. In fact, its length and width and height were each 1400 miles…. (according to the human standard used by the angel). Revelation 21:15-17
During the weekend devotions we’ve been counting our blessings and looking at biblical numbers. Let’s end with 1,400. That’s the cubic mileage of God’s eternal capital city in length, breadth, and height. Just in area coverage, it’s larger than India. But a city rising 1,400 miles into the sky? That calls for a huge planet—a supersized new earth, which God can easily create.
But there is no number large enough for the days, years, or centuries we’ll be there, for they are infinite and eternal.
When you think of heaven, don’t think of a vapory existence. Our resurrection bodies will be modeled after our Lord’s own, and we’ll live with Him in the new heaven, new earth, and His city of New Jerusalem, spending eternity counting our blessings!
Why not start counting your blessings now?
Heaven is a realm of unsurpassed joy, unfading glory, undiminished bliss, unlimited delights, and unending pleasures…. It will be a perfect existence. John MacArthur
