REVELATION CHAPTER 21


                              New Jerusalem...The City Foursquare.


This chapter brings the revelation of the New Beginning, and the creation of a New Heaven and Earth. To this end the Lord has labored for six thousand years, producing a New Creature to inhabit the New Heaven and Earth. Even the heavenly order is declared to be changed in a New setting. The throne of God and the Lamb, is established in the New City, Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem, and the walls of the City, and the foundation thereof are put together by members of His New Creation, built out of Lively Stones of a new Spiritual Creation. The old heaven will be deserted and the earth shall be remembered no more.(Rev. Chapter 21 Here)

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."

The creation of the New Heaven and New Earth, was foretold by the Prophet Isaiah over twenty five hundred years ago, and also declares it to remain,Isaiah 65:17” For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”, Isaiah 66:22”For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.” The first heaven and earth were passed away, and shall never be remembered again. The New Earth will be a New Beginning like the birth of humanity. The only thing you remember is that you came into existence of a new life, and the past is unknown.

1 John 2:15-17 Says that the world passes away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of the Father abideth forever. The creation of a New Heaven and New Earth, is definitely pronounced to be another heaven and earth, not the making over of this present earth. It takes place after the 1,000 year Kingdom Age on this earth, after Jesus sits upon the throne of David. Jesus is still Master of this Kingdom Age on earth. He enjoys the REST of this SEVENTH 1,000 year day with His saints, in the New Creation, even as His Father RESTED on the seventh day after the first creation….

1 John 2:15-17
“ Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.... For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.... And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.Says that the world passes away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of the Father abideth forever.“

After the Great White Throne Judgment of the wicked dead. His Kingdom is turned back to the Father.....1 Corinthians 15:24 "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father;when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power."........

1 Corinthians 15:28, "And when all things shall be subdued unto him,then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all."

The New Heaven and New Earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain, Isaiah 66:22”For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.” This is the eighth day, the dawning of the New Eternity for God's New Creation to dwell in His Kingdom for ever more. "Behold, I make all things new."

Revelation 21:5 “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.”

Revelation 21:2 “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” The holy city. New Jerusalem, came down out of heaven as a Bride prepared and adorned for Her Husband. She has already been married,

Revelation 19:7-10
7.    Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of
     the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8.   And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and
     white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9.    And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the
     marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true
     sayings of God.
10. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it
     not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of
     Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

The Battle of Armageddon is over, the earth has been cleansed from all sinful flesh; the False Prophet and the Beast have been bound for a 1,000 years, and the throne of David (Jesus) has been set up on earth; and the saints and the Bride have Reigned with the Son of God on earth for a 1,000 years. The wicked dead have been raised and Judged. The New Heaven and New Earth has taken its place and New Jerusalem is adorned for Her Husband.

                           THE THRONE OF THE 1,000 YEARS


The fourth chapter of Revelation gives the details of the throne on earth. The Four Beasts, or Living Ones, and the 24 Elders, or Apostles, will be sitting around the throne. Twelve of these thrones were promised by Jesus to the 12 Early Day Apostles, Matthew 19:27-28” Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? …..And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.,” Luke 22:29-30 "And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;..That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel,” The other 12 seats are for the 12 Last Day Apostles.

The 1,000 year Reign belongs specifically to Jesus Who sits upon the throne on earth. It is the time of the "HONEYMOON" of the Groom and the Bride Who are the FIRSTFRUITS OF PERFECTION UNTO GOD.

Revelation chapter 21 describes the City, New Jerusalem, as the City Foursquare in the New Heaven and New Earth, The order of the City has been changed. Twelve of the Apostles are seen as the "foundation" of the City, NOT AROUND THE THRONE. The Other 12 are seen in the 12 MANNER OF FRUITS. They no longer judge the 12 tribes of Israel. The throne of God and the Lamb are the ONLY thrones therein. The pure river of Life (the Holy Spirit) proceeds out of the throne of God and the Lamb. In the midst of the street of It, and on either side of the river, was the TREE OF LIFE, and the nations walked in the light of the City, There are 12 gates to enter the City. This is the permanent setting in the New Heaven and New Earth, it is the complete New Order of the eternal City, It was needful for every inhabitant in the nations of heaven to enter into the City to drink of the pure river of Life and partake of the Fruit of the Tree of Life which bears Fruit every month.

Fears, death, sorrow, crying, pain is a thing of the past for they are all former things which shall never be again or come into mind, Isaiah 65:17”For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind”……

Behold, all things are made new, no more worldly lusts. The Old Adamic nature has
vanished. The earthly flesh has been cleansed, purified, and translated into the New Order of the New Heaven and New Earth. The Finished Product of the Lord has matured, and ALL THINGS ARE MADE NEW.

Rev 21 Verses 9 and 10 “ 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 show thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.... And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,”

One of the Seven Angels that had the Seven vials full of the Seven last plagues, came and talked with John, and carried him away to a great and high mountain and showed him the City New Jerusalem, the Bride, the Wife of the Lamb. She was descending down from heaven prepared as 
a Bride adorned for Her Husband. This is a vision of the complete City, known as the City Foursquare.

This is the City completely finished with all Her surroundings. She was seen coming down from the OLD heaven ready to enter into the NEW Heaven and NEW Earth. She came with the brightness of the glory of God and decked with precious Stones, clear as a crystal, she has a great and high wall around Her. There were twelve gates in the wall and twelve Angels at the gates, and there were names written in the gates, which are the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. Three gates were on the East; three gates were on the North; three gates were on the South; and three gates were on the West.

The wall of the City had twelve foundations, and in them the name of the 12 Apostles of the Lamb. The City, the gates, and the wall were measured with a GOLDEN REED. Gold symbolizes Deity. She met the measurement of Deity. The City was foursquare. HE MEASURED THE WALL THEREOF, 144,000 cubits according to the MEASURE OF A MAN, that is, of the Angel.

Although nothing is mentioned or named, as it were of the gates and foundation, it does connect the wall with the 144,000 spoken of in Revelation 14:1, Revelation 7:3-8(Below) The 12 tribes of Israel were sealed, 12,000 out of each tribe; and 12,000 X 12,000 = 144,000. The 144,000 produced the perfect Manchild company. The Mother and Child were both Perfect. The Manchild needed no redemption. He was born perfect. The 144,000 Manchild company produced from the 144,000 members of the Bride of Christ will rule all nations with a rod of iron. He is a Royal Son of King Jesus and he controls the walls around the City.

The foundation, the gates, and the Angels at the gates are at His command in the protection of the City. The nations are controlled with a rod of iron by the Son of the King. The Bride of Christ had become One in the Godhead, the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Bride, One in the Family in Heaven.

Revelation 14:1” And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.”

Revelation 7:3-8
3.  Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed
    the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an
    hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5.  Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben
    were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve
    thousand.
6.  Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim
    were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve
    thousand.
7.  Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi
     were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve
     thousand.
8.  Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph
     were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve
     thousand.

The City was of pure gold (Deity) and the foundation of the wall was garnished with all manner of precious Stones. Even the streets of the City was pure gold, as it were, "transparent" glass. There was no sun there, for the glory of the Lord did lighten It, and the Lamb is the Light thereof.

And the NATIONS THAT 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 honor of the nation into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

It is declared, and very clearly, that sin dwells in eternity, or liars and abomination could not possibly be there to enter into the City, nor would there be a need to protect the gates that nothing that defileth could enter therein.

The City, New Jerusalem, was the city that Abraham was looking for, whose Builder and Maker is God, Hebrews 11:10 ”For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”

Hebrews 11:16” But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.” Abraham had no desire to go back into the country from which he came, but he was looking forward to the New Heaven and New Earth, the heavenly country.

John saw the "Finished Product" of the Adamic Creation, which had been changed from the first Man Adam to the Second Man Adam. The City, New Jerusalem, is the Perfected Ones Who cannot sin. They are the Wife of Jesus, the Son of God.



 THE TWELVE GATES

The wall around the City had twelve gates with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. They are the Only Way to approach the City. The 12 gates to the City portrays Israel's part and inheritance in the New Heaven and New Earth. This was their reward for their part of God's salvation while on earth. The gates provide the Way for the nations to enter into the City to partake of the Tree of Life, which produces the 12 manner of Fruits. It was the 12 tribes of Israel that protected the Tabernacle as they camped around about it in protecting it from the sinful nations as they marched through the wilderness. And it was Israel that opened the Way to the New Dispensation of the Spirit,
They were the Gateway unto full salvation on earth. When they camped around the tabernacle, they camped with three tribes on all four sides. Stationed at each gate in the New Heaven and New Earth was an Angel to turn away all defilement from the City.



THE TWELVE FOUNDATIONS


The twelve foundations with their names thereon signifies the twelve Early Day Apostles, and their inheritance, and reward for their part while on earth. It was those who founded the gospel of Christ, and salvation for the building of the New Creation unto perfection. They earned their inheritance as the foundation of the City, New Jerusalem.


  THE TWELVE MANNER OF FRUIT


The twelve manner of fruit and the rights to the Tree of Life will be ministered through the Last Day Apostles, (which are yet to come) in the great Last Day Ministry while the Church is still here on earth. They will feed and nourish the New Creature unto perfection through the Tree of Life while on earth. They shall be a part of the new City, New Jerusalem. They are a part of the Bride of Christ. They minister the Fruit of the Tree of Life to the nations which are saved, who enter the City every month to partake thereof.

Their position and ministry in the New Heaven and Earth, is the same as their ministry while on earth. The twelve tribes of Israel and the Four and twenty Apostles all labored to open the Way to the Tree of Life, and they shall maintain their same position in the New Heaven and Earth. The leaves of the Tree were for the healing of the nations,
Revelation 22:2” 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.” And...

Ezekiel 47:12
”And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

Who are they that will be in need of healing?......The nations on the outside of the walls of the City. All of these are redeemed creatures from the earth who were not able to be made perfect and they are still subject to sin. They were resurrected and given a Spiritual body, but they are hot immune to sin, and are in danger of being overcome, even as Lucifer was overcome. All sickness is due to sin in the body, whether it be in heaven or earth. Sin is a product of eternity and not of this earth. The leaves are for the healing of the nations on the outside of the walls of PERFECTION.
