Abraham looked for a city whose builder and maker was God
A city that was not made by hands,
A city that God had promised would number the stars in the sky
A city that was not made by man.
John in the spirit found the city whose builder and maker is God
The city that you can't see by sight,
Where a beautiful bride for a husband dwells and lives with her
Dispelling the dark because the Lamb IS the Light !.
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. (Hebrews 11:8, 10 NKJV)
And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. (Revelation 21:10, 22, 23 NKJV)
