THE LORD IS ON MY SIDE
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof” (Revelation 21:22-23)
Our savior Jesus Christ has undergone severe pain when men pierced sword in to his body and beat him. He was crowned with a crown of thorns and blood and water gushed forth from the side of his body. It is through that blood of Jesus Christ that we are saved. He suffered on the cross of Calvary that so that we may have eternal life. It is through the shedding of his precious blood that our sins are cleansed and through that blood of Christ that our filth is cleansed and we are made clear as crystal. That city of precious metals is prepared for us.
But for those who do not accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, there is another place designated and it is the lake of fire, as we read in Rev. 21: 8. It is described as the “lake which burneth with fire and brimstone” which is the second death.
