People's Commentary (NT)
Revelation 21:1 The New Jerusalem SUMMARY OF REVELATION 21: The New Heaven and New Earth. The Bride, the Lamb's Wife. The City Coming Down Out of Heaven. Its Walls, Gates, Foundation. The City of Gold and Gates of Pearl. The Light of the City. Its Holiness. I saw a new heaven and a new earth. The Scriptures both of the Old and New Testament point to the destruction of the old earth when the Lord comes to judgment. See II Peter 3:10. It is to undergo a purification and a renewal to fit it for the home of the saints in glory. The "old heavens and earth", which I understand to comprehend the old world and its order, so sadly out of joint, pass away at the time of the great judgment, and the old state of things shall be succeeded by a new order, both physical and moral. And there was no more sea. "And the sea is no more" (Revised Version). Whether this is to be understood literally, or whether it means that there shall be no barriers between the peoples, such as the sea interposes, is not certain.
