Seems like having gold paved streets would just be a waste since everyone has wings and is flying everywhere......and what's wrong with cobblestone, I mean, that has a very cool look to it.....I guess America isn't the only place that is extremely wasteful....
Yes! And you'll have to ask God for the answer to why. I would assume Gold stands for purity. Pure Gold and Silver have to be refined. And that's the same with us. We have to allow God to shape us and mold us into what He wants us to be. Pure.
Yes they are according to the bible, as to why I can't answer that because the scripture is silent therefore I remain silent. ==================================The twelve gates were made of pearls?each gate from a single pearl! And the main (((((street was pure gold)))), as clear as glass. (Revelation 21:21 NLT)
Everyone interprets the Bible differently.That is why religion can be a problem to discuss,Unless one is not sensitive, best to believe and live your life without being a pushy Christian, atheist and all in between.. I don't believe there is anything in Heaven materialistic.We don't need it there..For me, Heaven is a place to be at peace with your soul and your God.
There once was a rich man who was near death. He was very grieved because he had worked so hard for his money and wanted to be able to take it with him to heaven. So he began to pray that he might be able to take some of his wealth with him. An angel heard his plea and appeared to him. "Sorry, but you can't take your wealth with you." The man begged the angel to speak to God to see if He might bend the rules. The man continued to pray that his wealth could follow him. The angel reappeared and informed the man that God had decided to allow him to take one suitcase with him. Overjoyed, the man gathered his largest suitcase and filled it with pure gold bars and placed it beside his bed.(cont in comments)
