Today's Good News


10/23 Revelation 21:17-21
17 Then he measured the walls and found them to be 216 feet thick (the angel used a standard human measure). 18 The wall was made of jasper, and the city was pure gold, as clear as glass. 19 The wall of the city was built on foundation stones inlaid with twelve gems: the first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were made of pearls — each gate from a single pearl! And the main street was pure gold, as clear as glass.
The twelve gates are truly the Gates-Beautiful. Can you imagine anything as perfect looking as a gate made from pearls? Symmetry, surface and reflection are all elements of a beautiful gate that reflect the Lord’s glory. We will see those gates. They are a part of the City of God and will be a part of what we experience there. The Lord God is beautiful.
