QUESTION: Will there be Mansions in New Jerusalem?

John 14:1-11 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.

I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE for you.

And if I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him,

I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE, NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.

If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and HAVE SEEN HIM. Philip saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me HATH SEEN THE FATHER; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, HE DOETH THE WORKS. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Revelation 21:1-27 AND I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

And I John saw the holy city, NEW JERUSALEM,

coming down from god out of heaven,

PREPARED as a bride adorned for her husband.

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES;
AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH,
NEITHER SORROW,
NOR CRYING,
NEITHER SHALL THERE BE ANY MORE PAIN;
FOR THE FORMER THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write:for these WORDS ARE TRUE AND FAITHFUL. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life FREELY. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

BUT THE FEARFUL,
AND UNBELIEVING,
AND THE ABOMINABLE,
AND MURDERERS,
AND WHOREMONGERS,
AND SORCERERS,
AND IDOLATERS,
AND ALL LIARS,
SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE
WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE:
WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.

And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying,

Come hither, I will shew thee the BRIDE, the LAMB’S WIFE.

And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that GREAT CITY, the HOLY JERUSALEM, descending out of heaven from God. Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper store, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of he twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. And the building of the wall of it was of jasper, and the city WAS PURE GOLD, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones.

The first foundation was JASPER,
the second, SAPPHIRE;
the third, a CHALCEDONY;
the fourth, an EMERALD;
The fifth, SARDONYX;
the sixth, SARDIUS,
the seventh, CHRYSOLYTE;
the eight, BERYL;
the ninth, a TOPAZ;
the tenth, a CHRYSOPRASUS;
the eleventh, a JACINTH;
the twelfth, an AMETHYST.

And the TWELVE GATES were TWELVE PEARLS;
every several gate was of ONE PEARL:
and the street of the city was PURE GOLD,
as it were transparent glass.

And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be NO NIGHT THERE. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

AND THERE SHALL IN NO WISE ENTER INTO IT
ANY THING THAT DEFILETH,
NEITHER WHATSOEVER WORKETH ABOMINATION,
OR MAKETH A LIE:
BUT THEY WHICH ARE WRITTEN
IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!

ANSWER: The Bible doesn’t say, it says In my Father’s house «ARE» (present tense) many mansions «I GO» (future tense) to prepare a place for you.

The bible is very descriptive
about New Jerusalem
but makes no mention
of Mansions being there.

John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house ARE many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. Â I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE for you. And if I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
