Has a counterfeit to the Biblical “New Jerusalem” already been planned?
As a “smart city”?
I’ll explain in a moment.
First, for anyone who doesn’t know the reference, read this:
In the book of Revelation, the New Jerusalem is described as a city that will come down from heaven after the second coming of Jesus Christ. The dimensions and descriptions of the New Jerusalem are given in Revelation 21:10-27.
Here are some of the key details:
- Dimensions: The city is said to be a perfect cube, with each side measuring 12,000 stadia (approximately 1,400 miles or 2,200 kilometers).
- Walls: The city is surrounded by high walls, with 12 gates, each made of a single pearl, and guarded by an angel. The gates are named after the 12 tribes of Israel.
- Foundation: The city is built on 12 foundation stones, each of which is named after one of the 12 apostles.
- Streets: The streets of the city are made of pure gold, as clear as glass.
- Temple: There is no temple in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
- Light: The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.
- River of life: A river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flows from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city.
- Tree of life: On either side of the river stands the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month, and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
Overall, the New Jerusalem is described as a city of immense size and beauty, with walls, gates, foundation stones, and streets made of precious materials. It is a place of perfect peace and unity, where God and the Lamb reign supreme and where the people of God will dwell forever.
An artists rendering of what that might look like:

Now, with that in mind, consider what was just proposed in the Middle East….
Another counterfeit of what God has said he will do?
Counterfeit of the New Jerusalem?

No doubt that looks stunning, but the demonic counterfeit is never real.
It’s always a fake.
And it’s always built to deceive.
Some have even suggested Star Trek borrowed the concept of it’s Borg ship from the measurements of New Jerusalem:
