“Take notice! I’m about to create New Heavens and a New Earth; the former things won’t be remembered, nor will they come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating, for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight.”
(Isaiah 65: 17-18; Revelation 21: 1-8; 2 Peter 3: 9-13 )
The passages of the Bible tells us about the history of time is finished.
The history of eternity has just began.
New Jerusalem City coming down from God out of Heaven is like a bride. It is a cube city where the length, width and depth has 2,216 kms each or as big as the moon. Can easily accommodate Ten (10) billion people.
The foundation city wall are made of jasper, sapphire, agate, emerald, onyx, carnelian, chrysolite, beryl, topaz chrysoprase, jacinth, and amethyst. All of these gems deflects the seven colors of rainbow whenever light shone in them.
The Twelve (12) gates is made of single pearl and the streets are made of pure gold as clear as glass. (Revelation 21:16; 19-21)
Apostle John was the writer of Book of Revelation as our Lord Jesus shown to him what will transpires in the end times. He was in the Island of Patmos, Greece around 95 A.D.

This is what the LORD says, the King of Israel and its Redeemer—the LORD of the Heavenly Armies is his name—: “I am the first and I am the last, and apart from me there is no God. (Isa 44:6)
Who is like me? Let him proclaim and declare it, and lay it out for himself—since he made an ancient people. And let him speak future events; let them tell him what will happen. (Isa 44:7)
Don’t tremble, and don’t be afraid. Didn’t I tell you and announce it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? There is no other Rock—I don’t know of any.” (Isa 44:8)
We are serving a real God, He is the real God because He knows the future and controls historical events.
To challenge and test a real so called god, allow him to tell you the future in the next 2000 years in great details.

So he began to think to himself, ‘What should I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’ (Luk 12:17)
Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and I’ll store all my grain and goods in them. (Luk 12:18)
Then I’ll say to myself, “You’ve stored up plenty of good things for many years. Take it easy, eat, drink, and enjoy yourself.”‘ (Luk 12:19)
