The Holy City New Jerusalem

One of the most life changing experiences according to the pilgrim touring agency, is to embark on a journey to the holy land. The place of the crucifixion, the burial place, Golgotha (place of the skull), the garden tomb, the southern wall, the temple the place where Peter stood and preach, the place of the birth of Jesus, a visit to Bethlehem. The pool of Siloam the place of Jesus miracle, the low wall, the tomb of David, and to walk where Jesus walked. In addition to a superbly plan itinerary pilgrim tours believe that a large part of the success of the tour is dependent upon the expert guides. And the tour guide can make or break the tour. The book of Rev. 21:9. Says (and there came unto me one of the seven angels, which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying come hither, I will show thee the bride, the lamb’s wife. And the tenth verse says (and he carried me away in the spirit to a great high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God). The eleven verse says (having the glory of God; and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone clear as crystal;) There were many different stones used during the bible times. Limestone was one of the most popular stones used in that day, it was called Meleke are the Jerusalem stone. It was used in many of the regions, most celebrated structures, including the western wall. Another stone was called the mizzi stone, quarried in Palestine, it was especially good for construction and other design projects. But neither of these stones were mention in the book of the Revelations. When describing the light in the new Jerusalem. The bible describes the stone that is used as being most precious the jasper stone. The jasper stone is a unique stone within itself it comes in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. To name a few there is the African map jasper, the apple jasper, Arizona lizard, black jasper, bat cave jasper, zebra jasper, blue mountain jasper, snowflake, bumble bee, cherry, chocolate, cobra, Easter egg, firecracker, frog skin, ivory, leopard, misty mountain, muddy, peach, peanut, plum, rainbow, spider web, tiger, rabbit, and the list goes on and on. Besides being unique in its color the Jasper stone is also unique in its makeup and in the way that it is formed. Scientist classify the jasper stone as a dense substance, up to 20 percent of which can be made of foreign materials. The jasper stone fuses itself with other minerals, and due to these trace impurities, the stone may even grow together with agate, iron or opal. Jasper is multi- color due to the impurities it fuses itself with, which turns the stones different colors. This bears a starling resemblance to the way our lives consisted before we accepted Jesus Christ as our personal savior. We go through life fusing ourselves to sin and it changes us. But there was something different about the jasper stone in the new Jerusalem Rev. 21:11 tells us that it was clear as crystal. Completely opposite of all the jasper stone I had encounter over the internet. I could not find any that was clear as crystal. After contacting several colleges with no success I placed a call to the renown Fern Bank Science center in Atlanta GA. and was placed in contact with a scientist on staff I ask the scientist if he had any knowledge of a jasper stone that was clear as crystal he explained to me that a jasper stone is a jasper stone because it in graph impurities, and that’s it’s nature. He further explained that he has never heard of a jasper stone clear as crystal. The new Jerusalem will be completely transform, and everything within the city will have gone through a total transformation, where all thing will be crystal clear. No more misunderstanding, confusing, or speculation. Rev. 21:18 says (and the building of the wall of it was jasper: and the city was pure gold like unto clear glass) Paul says in I Cor. 13:12 (for now we see through a glass darkly but then face to face). In the new Jerusalem we will not be looking through the glass or speculation but we shall finally see Jesus face to face. Rev. 22:3 (and there shall be no more curse but the throne of god shall be in it and his servants shall serve him). Rev. 21:4 (and they shall see his face and his name shall be in their foreheads.
