I didn’t know this, but as I studied this verse, it seems that a great number of great cities have rivers associated with them
Pittsburgh has 3 (Ohio, Allegheny, Monongahela)
There are places along rivers that make for a great scenic walk. A beautiful view of nature.
But not Jerusalem. No rivers running thru or around it.
But in heaven that will change.
It will have a river that is crystal clear that starts at the throne of God and runs right thru the city.
There are many and most are someone’s idea of heaven, most have a staircase and one set of pearly gates.
I realized that even though we have some description of heaven and what the city will be like, we can’t really understand the glory and majesty it will be.
From what we can glean from these images of heaven, it sounds like a place we all want to be.
Unfortunately, there will be many who will not be there.
Revelation has numerous warnings about not being allowed in.
