Revelation: Chapter 21 Timelines


Scriptures do not provide a great deal of detail concerning the future eternity following the great white throne judgment that only the wicked will face. Revelation 21:1-27 and Revelation 22:1-21 provide us the view of what is in store for the righteous. On the timeline below for Revelation 21:1-27, there are two events identified on the far right side of the timeline that represents the future eternity. These events are the new heaven and new earth, and the New Jerusalem. Due to the limitations of the available space to show these events, this does not imply that these events occupy a significant timeframe to complete, only that they occur at the beginning of eternity future. The first set of charts show the new heaven and new earth.

The next set of charts show the new Jerusalem descending downward toward the earth.

The events described in Revelation 21:1-27 are shown in the following graph, imbeded with all the events revealed to John in the book of Revelation up to this moment.
