When the world hates you for being a follower of Jesus, for standing on truth, that’s when you know you don’t belong to this world. Once you learn that Covid was put in place FOR distributing vaccinations, you know you are entering a New World Order. When you learn that forced vaccination has always been the end game, then you are beginning to understand the REAL war. When hospitals become the #1 cause of death, you know the world has irreparably changed. When you watch the largest naval base in the U.S. handed over to NATO without a single outcry, you know you’re watching the New World Order at work. When the unvaccinated are considered a menace to society and the world’s primary health menace… then we must be nearing the end of days as Jesus described in Matthew 24.
Many of our DBM partners are under the greatest stress of their lives. As this world seems at its darkest, we who are believers, must fix our gaze on what Jesus has prepared for those who love Him. We DO have protection for His faithful on earth during the last days AND we have a future and a hope. Let’s take a close look at what God has prepared for those who love Him.
I regularly receive questions about Heaven from people wanting to know more details about what their future holds. My response is always about what the Bible says–the ONLY authority on every subject. So let’s consider what Scripture says about this wonderful place made for God’s people. I can testify that it is worth the race and worth the sacrifice of anything this world offers.
One of the questions is about the size and scope of the City at the center of Heaven, which is also called the New Jerusalem. The Heavenly Jerusalem, is also referred to in scripture as the Tabernacle of God, the Holy City, the City of God, the Celestial City, the City Foursquare, and the New Jerusalem. It will literally become heaven on earth when this Celestial City eventually comes to hover over the earthly Jerusalem throughout the thousand year reign of Christ. This is the City to which we look forward. You can find reference to this in Galatians 4:26; Hebrews 11:10; 12:22–24; and 13:14, but it is most fully described in Revelation 21. It is the place of our citizenship and the place where we can forever enjoy the fellowship of Jesus, our Lord.
The precise dimensions of the City are measured by an angel and are reported in Revelation 21:15-16. “And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.” (NKJV)
For those who desire the literal details, a furlong is also called stadia, which calculates in size to be 1,380 miles in each direction. I shall round out these dimensions to 1,400 miles or 2200 km in length, width and height. The end result is a cube which is the approximate width from the Pacific Coast all the way to the Appalachian Mountains and would stretch from Mexico up to the Canadian border.
According to Scripture, in the next verse, the wall is measured according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. Even though these proportions could have symbolic significance, they could also be quite literal. “Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.” (Rev. 21:17 NKJV).
After doing some calculations it seems clear that the new Jerusalem has enough square footage to meet the needs and desires of all… and that is just inside the City. Another amazing aspect of the City is the height which is also 1,400 miles. Some people have surmised that this is to allow for the city’s tallest towers. Another is that there are many levels, each level many miles high.
There is no reason to concern ourselves about Heaven being over-crowded. There are almost 2,000,000 square miles on the ground level alone. This is 10 times larger than France or Germany and much bigger than the entire country of India. And that’s just the first level.
Given the dimensions of a 1,400-mile cube, we’re talking about a large mass of living space. If the city contains multiple levels, using earthly standards, there could be hundreds of thousands of stories represented in the space above ground level. Certainly Heaven could easily and comfortably support billions of people and animals allowing still many square miles per person. God prepared a place adequate for every person who would ever live. Tragically, many have ignored His offer and chosen the world’s kingdom over God’s. But for those who have chosen to follow Jesus as Savior and Lord, we have a place prepared for us in this beautiful and magnificent City.
The most important aspect of Heavenly Jerusalem is that God Himself will live there. His presence will be utterly overwhelming. And without doubt, He will be its greatest feature. There will be no temple there for “the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.” The City will have no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it. Scripture does not say there will be no moon or sun, therefore, it is not likely that the sun and moon are done away with. It just means that there is no use for the light of the sun or moon because the Bible says, “The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.” Revelation 21:23 NKJV
God has provided us with an amazing description of Heaven and the Heavenly Jerusalem throughout scripture. We are taught by Paul to look forward to our future home and keep the hope of Heaven in our hearts. It is important to remember that we are only sojourners passing through this world. Heaven is our home and we are citizens of that great land, with joy unspeakable waiting our arrival!
We must remember who God created us to be and hold onto that perspective. You are a spirit, having a human experience. Not a human with a spiritual experience.
As a personal testimony about Heaven, I can say that the love, the light, and the life of Heaven is beyond description. The Light is God’s presence that touches everything in Heaven and carries within it His perfect Love and perfect Life. No one is ever isolated or alone again. We are all recognized and loved and cared for by our perfect Father. And loved and embraced by the community of Heaven. All who enter Heaven experience something beyond explanation… a revelation of being Home. You and I were created for that place… not for this world.
Jesus made a promise to all who trust in Him. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” John 14:3. He is coming again dear friends. And it will be right on time.
Remember, With God nothing is impossible!

“I battle fear but with Jesus I am over coming it! After 3 years, your message is still true. Thanks a bunch!” Susan
“So very true. Thank you for living your life for Jesus and standing strong in Him. Thank you for speaking the truth about evil spirits. We are in agreement with you. God bless you both.” Angela
“So so SO good! Loved this all. Confirms my focus. Thanks Paula” Bonnie – Canada
“Thanks for sticking to the Word of God, Dale. Thanks for insights offered in this video. “No fanfare” sounds right. So many of God’s planned events fly under the radar, e.g., the birth of Christ in a humble manger. The wise men knew what was going on, but few others.” Chet – AZ
“Your word today is so fitly spoken as Mark records the first preaching of Jesus in chapter one verse fifteen “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” Thank you! Eric B – Canada
“Let me stand in agreement with you all. Dale, your word spoken about not putting this vaccine into the temple of the Holy Spirit. Powerful! Wise words from these brothers and sisters. Thank you. I think we all see what is at the door. Stand everyone and keep standing on God’s word and hear His Holy Spirit. Psalm 91 is true. Apply it to our hearts Lord. You alone are our truth, the measuring tape of our souls. Praise the Lord for His help. Amen. Don B – Washington
“Very good article. Thanks. …. And I didn’t know about the firefighters and others in Los Angeles,….. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, mind, and strength… Delusion and folly, in our country, became De Facto… because of believers (Christians) becoming lukewarm, careless, worldly & defiled. And because of Christians not repenting, praying, seeking God & fasting… Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul & mind & strength… And thy neighbor as thyself.” Christine
