What is it?
The place where the Saints will gather and Christ will personally reign with them during the Millennium. Zion will be built upon the American continent, and the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory. It also refers to a holy city that will come down out of heaven at the beginning of the Millennium.
Much of the popular imagery of heaven actually comes from Revelation 21, where we find the most vivid description of New Jerusalem in the Bible.
