REVELATION CHAPTER 22


The New Heaven and Earth...The throne of God and the Lamb set up
in the City, New Jerusalem...The Trees of Life and Their Fruit..The River      of Life in the midst of the City.
(Rev.chapter 22 Here)


Chapter 21 has revealed the City called the "holy city". New Jerusalem, as a Bride adorned for Her Husband, In verses 9 and 10 John declares Holy Jerusalem to be a great City, the Bride the Lamb's Wife, Verse 16 calls the New Jerusalem, the Bride, the Wife, a City Foursquare.

Verse 1
declares this City to be in the New Heaven and New Earth. Verses 11 and 23 declares that the glory of God and the Lamb are the Light of the City, and that the sun that brought light to the Old Earth is passed away, and that it was no longer needed.

This City was not a part of the Old Earth, but it is a part of the NEW.
Verses 4 and 5 declare that all death, sorrow, crying, and pain are a thing of the past, for such is of the natural and were of the former earthly life, but He has made ALL THINGS NEW, to dwell in the New Heaven and New Earth.

This brings us to the conclusion of the plan of God which He purposed from the beginning, to create a New Order in heaven with a New Perfect Creation

                        THE REWARD

The New Name, Revelation 3:12; A New Jerusalem, Revelation 21:2; A New Heaven and New Earth, Revelation 21:1; All things New, Revelation 21:5.

The City Foursquare is not built with material things such as brick and stone that can perish with the destruction of the Old Earth, but It is built with Lively Stones. 1 Peter 2:4-5, "To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,.. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ."

The City New Jerusalem is built with Spiritual Stones or the New Creature, There is no way that we can see this City while we are in the flesh, other than a Spiritual revelation delivered unto us by using the natural and fleshly things which only conveys the Spiritual. It is hard for us to accept the Spiritual vision given in this chapter because of our past teachings, and natural earthly vision of earthly things, which we try to place in heaven as Spiritual. The formation of the City Foursquare and the walls thereof, is visualized for us through John's vision, but the actual Building of each Lively Stone in Its place in the structure is as difficult to understand as the physical body of the flesh. Only those who give a life time of study understands the full operation however, no one disbelieves or denies the functioning of the many Members of the body of flesh.

In the beginning, before all the discoveries of medicine, the body functions were just as much of a mystery as the City Foursquare is to the Christian world today. Let us not disbelieve or deny the functioning of this New Creation of God in the New City, and the New Heaven and New Earth because we do not understand the mystery of the City. The unity of every Member in the City will function in perfect harmony in the New Heavenly Order.

Revelation 21:12 “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:” There was a great and high wall around the City with twelve gates, with names of the twelve tribes of Israel. This signifies that the children of Israel who were under the Mosaic Law were a part of the wall. They who were classified with the strength of God's Spirit to be fitted in the wall with their leaders. They glare in the walls as precious stones when the light of the City shines upon them.

They were never to be forgotten of their worth in bringing in the New Order on earth. The walls had twelve foundations which carried the names of the Apostles. The Early Apostles were credited with Their inheritance. They were more precious than the tribes for they held up the full weight of the wall.

Rev 22 Verse 24” 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.”
The nations which were saved are from the Old Earth, and are those who did not make the Bride, New Jerusalem, They will walk in the Light of the City. The twelve gates will not be closed to Them.

Without knowledge and the understanding that sin is the product of all eternity and it still exists, and is not just a product of God's production of His heavenly domain; and without a complete understanding of the wall around the City New Jerusalem, and the 12 gates thereof, and of the nations on the outside of the city, then one cannot understand in the fulness thereof the complete purpose and plan of God's salvation. God's New Heaven and New Earth, as was the old heaven and earth, will be established in only a part of the space of eternity's territory.

Revelation 21:27 "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 of life."

If there was not sin in eternity, then there could not be any defilement, or abomination, or liars to enter into the City. For this reason, the wall around the City was high and the 12 gates were protected by the 12 Angels that only the nations that were saved could enter therein,Revelation 21:12 “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:”

A pure river of life came out from the throne of God and the Lamb. The throne of God and the Lamb was set up in the City Foursquare and issued the river of the water of life.

Rev 22 Verse 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.”

The river flowed from the thrones into the middle of the street of the City, This is the "same" River of Life the Lord sent unto the world to bring Spiritual Life. Jesus said, I will pray the Father and He will send you the Comforter (the Holy Spirit). He who drinketh of this Water will live forever,John 4:13-14” Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:.... But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

On either side of the River was there the Tree of Life, which bare twelve manner of fruit, and yielded her fruit every month and the leaves of the Tree were for the healing of the nations...... The City New Jerusalem, not only supplied Light for the nations, but She provided the River of Life for the nations. The River flowed in Her.

To drink of the River, the nations must enter through Her gates, likewise to partake of the Fruit of the Tree they must come to the Tree which stood by the River. The City was made perfect by partaking of the Bread and Water while on the old earth, but the nations that were saved are imperfect. They still have need of the Fruits of the Tree and the Water of Life, They must draw from the Tree of Life in the City. They must enter into Her gates.

Rev 22 Verse 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: “There shall be no more curse, which is the results of sin. There shall be no more curse or sickness, for God has prepared perfect health through the leaves of the Trees. The glorified body can not be infected with sickness and decay as the fleshly body does, but if sin should enter in they become sick in mind and need healing. The leaves of the Tree are a constant reminder and warning each month of the danger of sin as they come each month to partake of the Fruit of the Tree.

God and the Lamb have moved Their thrones into the City of the New Heaven and New Earth. The old heavenly order has been changed. When He said that He made all things NEW, He was speaking of the Spiritual Order of heaven as well as the New Creature.
The City is with God in heaven, and became His abode or Tabernacle, and the Tabernacle of God was with men, Revelation 21:3” 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., Her foundation. Her wall, the gates and the structure is made of Lively Stones, Men of earth Who are Spiritually made perfect. God and the Lamb dwell with Them, and They became His People. God and His Son set up Their throne in the Tabernacle, the City New Jerusalem, the City Foursquare......

Revelation 22:3-4 "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:...... And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads."

Revelation 21:22 "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it...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."...The name of the Godhead bodily, which is the LORD JESUS CHRIST, shall be in the foreheads of Those Who are a part of the City. The City becomes the fourth part of the Godhead as the Bride or Wife of the Son of God. The Father and the Son set up Their thrones in the City. All four in the love and unity in the Spirit are the City Foursquare.

Verses 10-15
10.  And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for
      the time is at hand.
11.  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy
      still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let
      him be holy still.
12.  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man
      according as his work shall be.
13.  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14.  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the
      tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15.  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and
      murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

The Book of Revelation is the Last Book in the Bible. It has been a sealed Book of prophecy to be released in the Last Days. Daniel sought to understand the prophecies and was obliged by the Lord, but was only permitted to write a portion thereof. He was then told to seal up the prophecy, for it was to be released in its time in the End,
Daniel 12:9-10," And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.... Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."

Daniel 12:4 "But thou, О Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.". ...The latter part of this century has certainly revealed this prophecy to be true. The scientific increase in knowledge has over run the earth, and the method of traffic has increased almost unbelievably.

It is also the time when wisdom and knowledge of God and His movements of the End Days should increase. It is the time when God's people will be TRIED, AND MADE WHITE IN PURITY, and White Robes will be given unto only Those Who are wise. The wise Virgin Class are the City Foursquare. The unwise Virgin Class are the nations outside of the wall of the City. The Book is open to all the righteous.

Rev 22 Verse 11 "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still,"

Rev 22 Verse 12 "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to
give every man according as his work shall be."...In Rev 22 verse 15”For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” the unjust, and the filthy are classed as dogs, sorcerers, whoremongers, murderers, idolators, and LIARS. They will not be in the New City Jerusalem, but they do exist in eternity and are Enemies of the God of Righteousness.

Rev 22 Verse 16 "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star,"...The message to the SEVEN CHURCHES in the second and third chapters of this Book has been revealed by Jesus, the Bright and Morning Star, He gave us the key to open the Book, that we might understand the full message. Only Those who fully surrender wholly to God in righteousness according to the Spiritual Law of the Bible can be made into One Mind, Heart, and Soul.

Rev 22 Verse 19 "And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

The words of this Book says, "I am Alpha and Omega," the Holy and True God. To have a part in the Book of Life, and Holy City, Ye too must be HOLY, AMEN.
