Once we have given our lives to Jesus in prayer (John 1:12) we have citizenship (Philippians 3:20) in heaven, that can not be taken away.  Exciting about our future, we can savor the details of our future destiny, let’s find out more…

Scripture describes Heaven as both a country (Luke 19:12; Hebrews 11:14-6) and a city (Hebrews 12:22; 13:14; Revelation 21:2). Fifteen times in Revelation 21-22 the place God and his people live together is called a city. The repetition of the word and the detailed description of the architecture, walls, streets, and other features of the city suggest that the term city points to a literal geographical location.

The city at the center of the future Heaven is called the New Jerusalem. The city is portrayed as a walled city its security is beyond question. The city’s walls are so thick that they couldn’t be breached by any siege engine and so high that no human could hope to scale them.

The city’s exact dimensions are measured by an angel and reported to be 12000 stadia, the equivalent of 2200 kilometers, in length, width, and height (Revelation 21:15-16). Even though these proportions may have symbolic importance, this doesn’t mean they can’t be literal. In fact, Scripture emphasizes that the dimensions are given in “man’s measurement” (Revelation 21:17).  The New Jerusalem is all the square footage anyone could ask for.

Even more astounding is the city’s 2200 kilometers height.  If these numbers are figurative, not literal (and that is certainly possible), surely they are still meant to convey that the home of God’s people will be extremely large and roomy. God will live in the city, and it is His presence that will be its greatest feature.

The city has “a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west” (Revelation 21:12-13).  Scripture tells us, “On no day will [the New Jerusalem’s] gates ever be shut” (Revelation 21:25).  The open gates guarded by angels remind us that our safety has been bought and permanently secured by God. All enemies of the Kingdom will be forever cast into the lake of fire.  The gates are where people enter and leave the city.

There will be no deceit in heaven (Revelation 21:8).

To be part of a city is to be a citizen, which involves both responsibilities and privileges. The apostle Paul reminded the Philippians, who were proud of their Roman citizenship, “Our citizenship is in heaven” (Philippians 3:20). Note the verb in the statement: Our citizenship “is,” not “will be,” in Heaven. Although our citizenship in Heaven is present, our residence there is future.

The New Jerusalem has not one foundation, but twelve, each decorated with a different gem (Revelation 21:14, 19-20). Furthermore, this city is built by God himself.  In Old Testament times, Abraham “was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God” (Hebrews 11:8-10). The New Jerusalem is that city. Whatever God builds will last.

People said, they can’t get excited about the New Jerusalem because they don’t like cities. But this city will be different, it will have all the advantages we associate with earthly cities but none of the disadvantages. The city will be filled with natural wonders, magnificent architecture, it will have no crime, pollution, sirens, traffic fatalities, garbage, or homelessness.

God’s fingerprints will be seen everywhere in the great city. Every feature speaks of His attributes. The priceless stones speak of his beauty and grandeur. The open gates speak of his accessibility.

Do you have your citizenship already?  The application for citizenship of Heaven will not cost any money, administration, and long waiting times.  It is the gracious gift of the Sole Owner to you, by just accepting Him as your Owner and Saviour in a prayer.  See, God’s Son paid the price for your citizenship. Is it that easy to become a citizen of heaven, yes it is.
