The new heavens and new earth, and new jerusalem


Hi all,

i wanted to know what our protestant brothers here believe about the account in Revelation. do you believe that it will be literal? that a new earth and new heavens will be created? and that the new jerusalem will be coming down from God and that God will reside with man as stated in the Book of Revelation?

or do you think it is not literal? i know you believe in sola scriptura, so then you must believe that this is a literal fact. what do you think? can you share your opinions with us regarding the new heavens, earth, and new jerusalem please?

thank you. also see here, and artists rendition of the new jerusalem. i thought that some might like to see it. to view it in its original size, click on the picture.
