What does the Bible say About Heaven:
Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even
like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve
angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of
the children of Israel:
On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and
on the west three gates.
And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the
twelve apostles of the Lamb.
And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates
thereof, and the wall thereof.
And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he
measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the
breadth and the height of it are equal.
And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits,
according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold,
like unto clear glass.
And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of
precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the
third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth,
beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth;
the twelfth, an amethyst.
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every
several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it
were transparent glass.
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.
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the
kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night
And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither
whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in
the Lamb's book of life.
