I was reading the part of revelations dealing with the new earth and new heaven which goes on to say there will be no more sea. My question is when it says no more sea is revelations speaking of no more gentile pagan nations or no nations that isn't 100% in Christ or one great nation under Christ or is it speaking of a literal no more sea? I am leaning towards the sea as a figure of gentile nations.

Amen to that. All one in Christ.

I am new here. I've been lurking for quite some time, and have really enjoyed it.

It's really been awhile, but Gregory Boyd had some interesting thoughts about the "sea" in his book, "God at War".

He talks about "Yahweh's Confilict with the Raging Sea". He seems to say that many times in the Old Testament, the sea or raging sea, with it's sea monsters, is symbolic for the Cosmic Conflict between Satan and God.

Seen in this way, perhaps the sea being no more, would be another way of declaring the end of this conflict.

Nice...Thank you!
