Hey ya’ll. Just this once, lets use our imaginations as it relates to the Word of God. After the Church Rapture, Jesus second coming, Armageddon, the Millennium reign of Jesus and lucifer being released from prison and waging another failed war; the Father will bless us with a new earth. This new earth will have a New Jerusalem, with a new Mount Zion right in the middle of the city. The walls/gates of the city will stretch 1,450 miles in length and width around the city. Now here is where the ‘WOW’ comes in the picture. Revelation 21:16, tells us the walls/gates will be equally as high as they are long. 1,400 mile high! Question? If the walls/gates are 1,400 miles in height, what could the altitude of the new Mount Zion possibly be? Okay. How big does the new earth have to be in order to fit a 1,400 mile tall city gate into the atmosphere? Then, how high up must the new Mount Zion be for it to be called a mountain by God and not a hill? Mount Everest is the 5 ½ miles in altitude. Based on the amount of sky between Mount Everest’s peak and outer space, the new Mount Zion will be a minimum of 273 times taller than Mount Everest ! So how much taller is Mount Everest than the Sears building? There are 5,280 ft in a mile. The Sears Tower is 1,454 ft tall. Mount Everest is 29,040 ft tall. So, Mount Everest is 20 times taller than the tallest building on this earth. Now let’s multiply the height of the new Jerusalem walls/gates by 20 to get an imaginary height of the new Mount Zion . 28,000 miles up! ‘WOW’. Therefore, the new earth must be no less than 2 ½ time the size of the Sun. I learned in 5th grade that 109 earths can fit into the Sun. Now multiply 109 earths by 2 ½ Suns. How many times larger could the new earth be than our current home? 272.5 time the current size of this earth. Take a moment and ponder that because God also creates a new Heaven. After we see the old Heaven, we’re all going to be saying, “How can God top this?” Right? So imagine that….. Oh. Do you think the New Jerusalem will have any buildings in it that are taller than the walls/gates (1,450 miles tall)? So, will we call them ‘sky scrappers’ or what?
22But you have come to Mount Zion , to the heavenly Jerusalem , the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,
1Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion , and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads.
16The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia/furlongs in length, and as wide and high as it is long.Revelation 21:16 Note: That 12,000 stadia/furlongs equal about 1,450 miles or 2,200 kilometers.
