The Lord will , one day, escort us into a city he has built for us called
new Jerusalem. From there we will follow him throughout the galaxies in love. There will be no more tears or sorrow. Death
will have been vanquished. We will be perfected in Christ forever.
"...I go to prepare a place
for you..." (John 14:2)
"And I John, saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared
as a bride adorned for her husband"(Rev.21:2).
"For here we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come" (Heb.13:14)
Revelation 21 "1 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.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming
down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 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.
4 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
6 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.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and
I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 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.
9 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,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a
jasper stone, clear as crystal;
12 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:
13 On the east three
gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
14 And the wall of the city
had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that talked with me had
a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16 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.
17 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.
18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and
the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
19 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,
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz;
the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21 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.
23 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.
25 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.
27 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
"1 And he shewed me a pure river
of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it,
and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every
month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse:
but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
4 And they shall see his face; and
his name shall be in their foreheads.
5 And there shall be no night there;
and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever."
"16 For by him were
all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before
all things, and by him all things consist."
ABRAHAM BY FAITH:
"10 For he looked for
a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God."
"1 Let not your heart
be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 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.
3 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."
THE CHURCH IN HEAVEN
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
Beloved, THE CHURCH GOES INTO
THE PRESENCE OF GOD, NOT ISRAEL, NOR ANY OTHER HUMAN BEING IN THEIR OWN BODY! ONLY WE IN OUR GLORIFIED BODIES CAN BE IN THE
PRESENCE OF GOD! FOR GOOD REASON!!! FOR REVELATION CHAP 4 IS CLEAR AS A BELL! WE WILL BE IN HIS PRESENCE WITH CROWNS (Rewards
TO THE CHURCH SAINTS for faithful service) THAT WE THROW AT HIS FEET IN PRAISE AND ADORATION.
But first, the great
teaching of The Apostle Paul, that we can count on because our Lord KEEPS HIS WORD:
1 Corinthians 15
when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought
to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where
is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God,
which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
15 "For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name
is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of
the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones."
John 3:16 16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
13 "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son
of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
THE CALL OF GOD TO COME UNTO HIM
"17 And the Spirit and the bride
say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water
of life freely." This has nothing to do with the chronology of the Church nor our presence in the Tribulation. It is a
invitation by the Church for Christ to come and by The Spirit for sinners to come to Christ which is our work through the
Gospel of the Grace of God.
This IS the invitation today! If a person unsaved is tired of drinking of the cesspools
of the world, WE, in the power of The Spirit, invite them TO COME TO HIM!...NOW, before it's too late. We do it through The
Gospel of Grace in The Spirit of love. Isaiah 55
1 "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he
that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and
THE NEW JERUSALEM AND THE UNIVERSE:EVERBRIGHT BY
THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
