John saw the New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven. It included a street of pure gold (Revelation 21:21).
The question is, does the New Jerusalem look the same to everyone, or did God show it to John in a way that he could understand?
Was the golden street actually a symbol of something much greater, of a splendor and luxury that John could not have imagined, much less communicated?
Will it limit our imaginations to think of heaven in terms of earthly wealth, or will it help?
