When God created the first "heaven & earth" there was "day" and there was "night".
We also see it called "light" and "darkness".
"And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night." Genesis 1:5
Now obviously my objective is to demonstrate some things to those of us who properly understand that Revelation and the end of all the seemingly "physical stuff" there, has nothing to do with physical stuff at all. I am trying to demonstrate that if we hold this same hermeneutic when dealing with Genesis and the seemingly "physical stuff" there, we can actually see a very consistent and very solid parallel narrative.
Regarding the darkness that God called "night" in Genesis 1:5, what do we see happen to this night at the end of the story in the book of Revelation? When we see this picture of this New Jerusalem spiritual city in Revelation, we read...
"Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be NO NIGHT THERE)" Revelation 21:25
We also see this again in the next chapter...
"There shall be NO NIGHT THERE: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light" Revelation 22:5
Now we see that in the New City, there is no darkness there because the Light of the Lord's presence is EVERLASTING.
Isaiah looked forward to this time and said...
"The sun shall no longer be your light by day, Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the Lord will be to you an EVERLASTING LIGHT, And your God your glory. Your sun shall no longer go down, Nor shall your moon withdraw itself; For the Lord will be your EVERLASTING LIGHT." Isaiah 60:19-20
Isaiah also looked forward to this LIGHT and how the Gentiles would come into it and said....
"Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising." Isaiah 60:1-3
Paul, in the "last days" of the "darkness" said the following...
"for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The NIGHT IS FAR SPENT, the DAY IS AT HAND." Romans 13:11-12
Darkness was almost spent. The Eternal Day of the Lord was almost there. The Coming of the Lord to bring His Kingdom was soon to happen.
The Day of salvation is also the day of Everlasting Light. It was also the Day Peter referred to when he looked forward to the soon approaching "Day when the MORNING STAR would DAWN and arise in your hearts". 2 Peter 1:19
See the imagery of "light" being equated to glory?
Christ in them was "THE HOPE OF GLORY". Colossians 1:27
So why is there no more night in the New Jerusalem?
Because God's PRESENCE IS EVERLASTING LIGHT.
It is salvation.
"And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God" Revelation 21:3
