The New Heaven and New Earth Will Be Beautiful

“What image is used to portray for us that new earth? Surely not one that is simply spiritual. No, rather an earth that thoroughly resembles a visible, external, observable creation. Who can fathom the portrait given us in John’s Apocalypse of the New Jerusalem with its foundations of emerald and sapphire and its pearly gates, without being immediately overwhelmed with the impression of a glorious beauty that will far surpass the most beautiful thing our eyes have ever seen?” -Abraham Kuyper
