Jerusalem City Light
(Revelation 21.25-26)
Page 306

"On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it." (Revelation 21.25-26)✞

No Night There

Afraid of the Dark?More than once John of Patmos insists that there will be "no night" in the city of New Jerusalem. Many ancient peoples, like many children, were afraid of the dark. In the new world, the frightening darkness will be no more, for the presence of God will bring light to the city of Jerusalem. Even in this world of space and time, according to Psalm 139.12, "even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you."

Kings Gifts

Three Kings GiftsAgain and again, it has happened that an age of brilliance has been followed by a dark age. But in the new age, the darkness will be gone forever and there will be nothing but light. John of Patmos the writer of the Book of Revelation, like the ancient prophets, repeatedly speaks in Revelation 21.24 of "The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it." It is true that the nations will bring their gifts to the Christ in the New Jerusalem.✞
