If you are unaware, the bible often speaks of Jews and Gentiles as "Land & Sea"
The Jews being the land. The Gentiles being referred to as the "sea".
Sounds funny right? But there are lots of symbols used in scripture. Such as the Wolf and the Lamb laying down together. Symbolic of Unclean (Gentile) and Clean (Jew) coming together in Christ where there is "neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, but we are all one in Him"
The land or the earth, is used frequently as a symbol for God's Covenant people/Israel throughout the Old Testament. They are viewed as a people with stability because they had God as their head. They had structure, order, and foundation, and so they were depicted as "land."
The sea is used many places in Scripture to describe the Gentile nations (pagan nations), which had no inner stability because there was no recognition of the authority of God. They worshiped idols and held to pagan concepts which made them unstable. Darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Here are a couple examples of Gentiles being referred to as "the sea"...
"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. “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant,
And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of THE SEA shall be turned to you, The wealth of the GENTILES shall come to you." Isaiah 60:2-5
How could the abundance of the "SEA" come to God? Clearly from the context we can see that these are Gentiles.
"Daniel spoke, saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. And four great beasts came up FROM THE SEA, each different from the other." Daniel 7:2-3
Again, 4 GENTILE Kingdoms coming from the "SEA".
"Then he said to me, “The WATERS which you saw, where the harlot sits, are PEOPLES, multitudes, nations, and tongues" Revelation 17:15
Again, these "WATERS" are peoples, nations, etc. Gentiles.
In the Old Covenant there was a division between LAND and SEA. (Jew and Gentile)
In the New Covenant, (In Christ) there is now no distinction. We are all one in Jesus Christ.
"For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him" Romans 10:12
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28
So when John looked and saw the vision of the New Jerusalem (the New Heaven and New Earth) coming down as a bride for God, he looked and saw the Old Heaven and Earth had passed away and at the same time said...
"AND THERE WAS NO MORE SEA"
Meaning, "there is no more separation between Jew and Gentile."
"For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility" Ephesians 2:14
The wall has been broken down. The wolf now lays with the Lamb in the New Heaven and New Earth where righteousness dwells.
Peace in Christ is available to all despite race, color, creed, or status.
