Commentary: Numbers within numbers and truth within truth. New Jerusalem is described with a double of twelve. There are twelve (12) distinct numerical or measurement references that describe the physical, structural nature of new Jerusalem. There are also twelve (12) descriptive references regarding the holy and righteous nature of the city. Combining both groups of twelve (12) references nets a total of 24 references or descriptions. Twenty-four (24) denotes God’s abundant or doubled organizational arrangement.
WOW! What a city! The New Jerusalem is described in a manner in which it could not be built with materials from Home Depot, Lowes or any other local store that sells building products. It is built with the rarest and most precious of materials in the universe that could only come from heaven and God in order to properly represent his glory. Shining precious stones, a type of luminous, transparent gold utilized entirely throughout the internal structure of the city. The New Jerusalem is described as being 12,000 furlongs on each side which is aproximately equal to 1,500 miles. Thus, the city is 1,500 miles wide – 1,500 miles long – 1,500 miles high. Its length, breadth and height are equal. The description suggests two possible geometric shapes, that of being either a cube or pyramid that could house several billion redeemed souls or glorified bodies! Each one of the twelve foundations of the city are named after one of Christ’s Apostles and the twelve gates are named after one of the Tribes of Israel. (Revelation 21:12, 14). The wall is measured as 144 cubits high, which translates into 240 feet high. (144 cubits x 20”per cubit = 2,880” / 12” per foot = 240 feet). Even the height of the wall of the new Jerusalem is a divine multiple of twelve (12) or twenty-four (24).
The New Jerusalem is the capital city of heaven and the center of God’s universe. Jesus prepared the New Jerusalem to become the home of the saints. Jesus promised (John 14:2): “in My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 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.” In Revelation 2:7, Jesus described the heavenly home of the Church as follows: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” This tree of life will be present in the midst of New Jerusalem forever, and it is there to remind us that our life is dependent upon the gifts of God. In Revelation 22:2 the Bible tells us that “in the middle of its street, and on either sie of rhe river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
This heavenly city is called the New Jerusalem to indicate its special place in the heart of God, similar to His love for the earthly city Jerusalem in Israel. Because God will actually dwell with His saints in New Jerusalem, John calls the New Jerusalem “the tabernacle of God”. Revelation 21:3 promises: “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.” God calls it “the heavenly Jerusalem” to distinguish it from the earthly Jerusalem which will continue to exist forever as the blessed throne of Jesus Christ. Currently, the New Jerusalem exists in heaven. At the end of the 1,000 year millennium, the New Jerusalem will descend down to the earth as it “comes down out of heaven”. In Revelation 3:12, John described “the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God.” The New Jerusalem will be constantly illuminated by the supernatural light of God’s presence. The supernatural light will infuse the holy city eliminating the need for light from the sun. “And there shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light”. (Revelation 22:5). The need for no natural sunlight only applies to the New Jerusalem. Other passages reveal that night and day will still continue on the earth forever suggesting that the sun will continue to exist for earth’s inhabitants and the earthly city of Jerusalem. Length (1,500 miles), Width (1,500 miles), Height (1,500 miles). Twleve-thousand furlongs = 1,500 miles.
Earth’s Surface Area
The total surface area of Earth is about 197 million square miles and currently housing an estimated 7.5 billion people which are crammed on only 29% (57.1 million square miles) of the earth’s surface. This equates to approximately 131.3 people per every square mile of inhabitable surface area. This is a pure, theoretical calculation, assuming that every square mile of land on earth, is habitable. This, of course, is not realistic because of vast unpopulated areas due to mountain ranges, deserts, climate and other natural barriers. The real number of people, per square mile will be significantly higher, if we subtract for or discount the total theoretical amount of land available by the amount of land that is actually not available. Unfortunately, I do not have this statistic. However, it is accurate to state the number calculated above (131.3 people for every square mile) is on the very low end of any calculation that takes into account even less available land mass for habitation. This will not affect a reasonable comparison between measuring the number of earth inhabitants against the possible number of New Jerusalem inhabitants (given the dimensions, length, width and height) provided in the Bible (Rev. 21:16). Twelve-thousand Furlongs are equal to 1,500 miles.
About 71 percent of the earth is covered by water and 29 percent by land. Thus, only 57.1 million square miles are available for habitation (197 million square miles x .29 = 57.1 million square miles). 139.9 million square miles of the earth is uninhabitable because of the scope of the oceans (197 million square miles x .71 = 139.9 million square miles of ocean area).
New Jerusalem Cube
Cubic Volume = 1,500 miles x 1,500 miles x 1,500 miles = 3,375,000,000 cubic miles (3.38 billion cubic miles).
Surface Area = 6 x 15002 = 13,500,000 square miles (13.5 million square miles)
In terms of surface area, new Jerusalem (as a city) equals almost 25% (13.5 million square miles) of the earth’s entire liveable surface area (57.1 million square miles)!
If the twelve (12) gates of the city are placed equi-distant from each other, and from the corners of the perimeter of city, the gates will be spaced 300 furlongs (375 miles) apart from one another.

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced the launch of the New Murabba Development Company on Thursday which will oversee the development of a modern downtown in Riyadh by 2030.
The company chaired by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, will develop the “world’s largest modern downtown in Riyadh,” according to information shared with the media, and is expected to add $48 billion (SAR180 billion) to non-oil GDP and create 334,000 direct and indirect jobs.
The city will be built with sustainability in focus, featuring green areas and walking and cycling paths that will seek to promote active lifestyles. It will also feature a museum, a technology and design university, a multipurpose immersive theater, and more than 80 entertainment and culture venues.
The project is being developed in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 goals and will be located at the intersection of King Salman and King Khalid roads to the northwest of Riyadh, in an area of 19 million square meters.
The development will feature more than 104,000 residential units, 9,000 hotel rooms, more than 980,000 square meters of retail space, 1.4 million sqm of office space, 620,000 sqm of space for leisure activities, and 1.8 million sqm of space for community facilities.
It also hopes to incorporate a 15-minute city concept, wherein living, working and entertainment spaces will be easily accessible by its residents.
One of the key projects within the development is the “Mukaab.” It has been described as an “iconic landmark featuring the latest innovative technologies” which will measure 400 meter high, 400 meter wide, and 400 meter long.
It is reportedly inspired by the modern Najdi architectural style and seeks to be the “world’s first immersive destination offering an experience created by digital and virtual technology with the latest holographics.”
The “Mukaab” will include a tower atop a spiral base. It is being touted as a “premium hospitality destination with a multitude of retail, cultural and tourist attractions, along with residential and hotel units, commercial spaces, and recreational facilities.”

But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14
