Revelation 21_12-27 Twelve Gates of Heaven on Earth

 Revelation 21:12-27 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels, & names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.

13 On the East three gates, on the North three gates, on the South three gates, and on the West three gates.

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he that talked with me, had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

16 And the city lieth four square, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs: the length, and the breadth, and the height of it are equal.

17 And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred, and forty, and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the Angel.

18 And the building of the wall of it was of Jasper, and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was Jasper, the second Sapphire, the third a Chalcedony, the fourth an Emerald,

20 The fifth Sardonyx, the sixth Sardius, the seventh Chrysolite, the eight Beryl, the ninth a Topaz, the tenth a Chrysoprasus, the eleventh a Iacinct, the twelfth an Amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, every several gates were of one pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22 And I saw no Temple therein: For the Lord God Almighty, and the Lamb, are the Temple of it.

23 And the city had no need of the Sun, neither of the Moon to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

24 And the nations of them which are saved, shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it.

25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.

27 And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defiles, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lambs book of life.
