1) What would be your design for the perfect city? How would the City of God look if you were its architect?
2) How would you describe the kind of relationship God desires to have with His people?
3) What is the timing of the end of the world? When will God accomplish all things?
Jesus will take His place as King of kings and Lord of lords and reign for 1,000 years on planet Earth. This will end with the complete destruction of the world as we know it (see 2 Peter 3:10). Revelation 21:5 says, “I am making everything new!” So the next things John is shown are the new heavens and new earth. So John sees this incredible city described as being a cube 1,400 miles high and wide and tall with walls 200 feet thick!
The desire God has for His people will be fulfilled in the end. Revelation 21:3 says: “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.” This has been God’s desire from the beginning. As far back as the book of Leviticus (see 26:12) we read about God’s plan on establishing a people through which He would enjoy a special relationship
Reminiscent of Jesus’ words on the cross found in John 19:30 (“It is finished”), in Revelation 21:6 Jesus says, “It is done.” God will accomplish all He has set out to do. This will all be done in His time according to His schedule. We must prepare and watch, but it won’t be done until Jesus says so.
