The Eternal Age


THE ETERNAL AGE

Revelation 21

The truth is we don’t have a clue to what will happen after the White Throne Judgment. What we do know is that everything will be NEW and all the FORMER things will be gone.

The Prophet Isaiah wrote:

Isa 42:9  Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

He said in another place:

Isa 64:3  When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.
Isa 64:4  For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

God told Isaiah to write that after these terrible things of the Great Tribulation that no one has seen what is to be prepared for those that choose Jesus.

Jesus Christ said:

Joh 14:2  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].
Joh 14:3  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 Apostle Paul wrote in reference to this verse that God hath revealed some by His Spirit. We will see in Revelation Chapter 21 and 22 some of the “wonderful” sights that await us.

1Co 2:9  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
1Co 2:10  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
1Co 2:11  For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

What are some of the things we know now?

1.) There even some things that the Angles don’t know:

1Pe 1:12  Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

2.) We will see goodness so great it is unbelievable:

Psa 31:19  Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

3.) The Father has prepared a real special place:

Mat 20:23  And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, [but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father].

4.) It’s going to be a wonderful city:

Heb 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].

5.) It will be very good:

Rom 8:28  [And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God], to them who are the called according to his purpose.

6.) It is a Kingdom:

Jas 2:5  Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and [heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him]?

7.) There can be many gifts:

1Co 1:5  That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
1Co 1:6  Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
1Co 1:7  [So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ]:

8.)  We’ve already said if mansions are already there that we haven’t seen then our homes could be better than mansions:

Joh 14:1  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Joh 14:2  [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.
Joh 14:3  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.
Joh 14:4  And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

9.) We will see Our God face to face:

Rev 22:4  [And they shall see his face]; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

We will get our best view of our New World in chapters 21 and 22 in this great book but “There’s only one way to get there”!

Act 8:37  And Philip said, [If thou believest with all thine heart], thou mayest. And he answered and said, [I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God].

*****Our text:

Rev 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.
Rev 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.
Rev 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.

(A new heaven and Earth)

There is going to be a new heaven and a new Earth. I believe the new heaven will replace that one that is above us where we get the air that we breath maybe and probably including at least part of the heaven where the Sun, Moon and Stars are.

I believe that the entire planet of Earth will be replaced with a new Earth, just as the Bible says. I you believe the words of salvation then we should also believe these words.

Jesus said:

Mat 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

We know this will happen when Christ sits on the White Throne of Judgment:

Rev 20:11  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

The Apostle Peter wrote of this day:

2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

We should not get this confused with the second coming of our Lord for this will not happen until the end of the Millennial reign of Christ. For Peter also writes by the Holy Spirit, that we knowing all these things should be serving in all manner of godliness, looking for these things that will happen after the “Rapture” of the Church.

2Pe 3:11  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

There’s a new world coming but you must be saved in order to see it!

The prophet wrote:

Isa 60:21  Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

Even Job knew of this day:

Job 9:2  I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?

Job 9:6  Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

(There is no more Sea)

This new Earth will not need a Sea:

1.) There will be no more “pollution”. The Sea purifies our drinking water the dirty water flows into the sea and through God’s miracles, it is evaporated and comes back to us in the form of rain.

2.) Climate Regulation: Ocean dynamics strongly affect climate and weather patterns, transferring heat from the equator to the poles and moderating carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.

a.) Land-based pollutants: Waste originating on land such as plastics and electronics account for 80 percent of all marine debris.
b.) Toxic chemicals: Chemicals that have been implicated in cancer, developmental problems and other health issues end up in the ocean.
c.) Energy consumption: The burning of coal, accounting for roughly 50 percent of U.S. energy use, releases toxic mercury that ends up in the ocean and the fish we eat.
d.) Pharmaceuticals: The Associated Press reports that U.S. hospitals and long-term care facilities alone flush millions of pounds of pharmaceuticals annually down the drain.
e.) Oil spills: An estimated 706 million gallons of oil are leaked from ships or wash from land into the ocean each year.
d.) Carbon emissions: The oceans have absorbed about 50 percent of carbon dioxide from our carbon emissions, resulting in a 30 percent increase in ocean acidity since the Industrial Revolution.

Not only are we contaminating the ocean and its inhabitants, we are ultimately contaminating ourselves. Our health is directly reliant upon the health of the ocean for our most basic sustenance—food and water.

Some results of this pollution:

1.) Seafood: We ingest harmful chemicals via toxin-laden seafood, including mercury and PCB s. These contaminants, among others, have serious developmental implications.
2.) Water: Polluted water transfers water-borne diseases and toxic chemicals. Every year, more than 3.5 million people die worldwide from water-related diseases.

Knowing these things we can also get some idea of what God has planned for all His children.

WHY NOT BE A CHILD OF GOD!

Jesus said:

Joh 14:4  And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

IT’S A SIMPLE ENOUGH WAY BECAUSE SALVATION IS JUST THIS SIMPLE!

(a new city)

This another thing that God has promised to all that believe upon Him. There is no city on this Earth that it can be said it will last forever. Only the New Jerusalem will fill this emptiness we long for and the following verses will describe her beauty.

Heb 13:14  For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

The prophet Isaiah wrote:

Isa 52:1  Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.

The city of “faith”, Abraham looked for it:

Heb 11:8  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
Heb 11:9  By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
Heb 11:10  For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

The “heavenly” Jerusalem:

Heb 12:22  But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
Heb 12:23  To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
Heb 12:24  And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

Jesus told us about it at the first of this great book we are about to finish. The city of all those that overcome the works of Satan in the Church Age:

Rev 3:12  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

As always the Holy Spirit says “LISTEN TO WHAT I AM TELLING YOU”

Rev 3:13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

WAKE UP WORLD!

(the tabernacle of God)

Why only a tabernacle? We will see in this chapter that God will be the Temple.

We will be with God face to face:

Job wrote:

Job 19:26  And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
Job 19:27  Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

Paul wrote:

1Co 13:12  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

*****Our text:

Rev 21:4  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.
Rev 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.
Rev 21:6  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.
Rev 21:7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Rev 21:8  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.

What will not be in this new city:

1.) No Sea (no pollution)[I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.]
2.) No tears (no reason to cry)
3.) No death (no grave yards, no funerals, no hospitals, no cancer, no heart problems, no sickness of any kind)
4.) No sorrow (no reason at all to be unhappy)
5.) No pain (no pressure, no distress, no tension, no wounds, no bruises, no broken bones, no mental problems)
6.) No murderers (not one penitentiary, not one jail, not one lawyer, nor judge)
7.) No adulterers (no jealousy, no marriages, no wives nor husbands [all of one family])
8.) No idolaters (everyone will worship God)
9.) No liars (only the truth, it is the only way to get there to “Believe in God’s Truth” [Write: for these words are true and faithful.] )
10.) THERE WILL BE NO SIN!
11.) IF IT IS ON THIS EARTH IT WILL NOT BE IN NEW JERUSALEM. (Behold, I make all things new)

*****Our text:

Rev 21:9  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.
Rev 21:10  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,

(one of the seven angels)

Just to show how the term angel is used sometimes in the Bible, this certain angel was one of the Saints that had gone home to be with the Lord.

Rev 22:8  And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
Rev 22:9  Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

This a hint of what a Saint of God in Heaven will look like. Don’t get me wrong there is only one God and no Saint will ever be a God but John was so excited and this messenger sent from God was so majestic and wonderful John made the mistake of bowing to him. Remember every saint of God is also a child of God therefore in the family of “royalty”.

Not every angel is Jesus, not every angel is described as one of the Saints of God and some are truly angels as we know that they are innumerable. We all will have jobs to do in Heaven. We will not be just stretched out on a cloud taking it easy. There will be a society in Heaven.

(The Bride)

The Beauty of this city was nothing like John had ever seen so he described it as a new bride. There is no doubt of the beauty of a new bride going to meet her husband on the wedding day. The Oriental bride was adourned with all things to increase her beauty and her worth. After all this is the place God prepared for His “bride”.

This city was not on the New Earth but may be suspended in the New Heaven above the Earth.

*****Our Text:

Rev 21:11  Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
Rev 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:
Rev 21:13  On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
Rev 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Rev 21:15  And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
Rev 21:16  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.
Rev 21:17  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.
Rev 21:18  And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

(the Glory of God)

The prophet Isaiah wrote these words:

Isa 60:19  The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
Isa 60:20  Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

What did this light resemble? This entire city, New Jerusalem, resembled a most precious stone. We already know that a Jasper stone reflects a multitude of colors. It may be said this city looked somewhat like a a crystal clear ice cube with the spectrum of the rainbow, glowing, reflecting, flickering in an awesome display of light. A truly beautiful sight.

Jasper also represents “Wisdom”.

Job wrote:

Job 28:12  But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
Job 28:13  Man knoweth not the price thereof; [neither is it found in the land of the living].
Job 28:14  The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.
Job 28:15  It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.
Job 28:16  It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.
Job 28:17  The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.
Job 28:18  No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: [for the price of wisdom is above rubies].
Job 28:19  The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
Job 28:20  Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
Job 28:21  Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
Job 28:22  Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
Job 28:23  [God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof].

(a great wall)

The wall of this great city have a purpose but it’s not for defense. The wall around New Jerusalem tells us a story. I guess a Bible story for remembering all things will be made new.

Notice the “seven” twelves:

1,) This is a square wall much like the city.
2.) Twelve gates.
3.) Twelve angles as guards.
4.) Twelve names of the tribes of Israel were on these gates.
5.) Twelve foundations.
6.) Twelve names of the Apostles were on the foundations
7.) Twelve cubits times twelve the height of the wall[214 feet].
8.) Twelve pearls were the gates thereof.

(Mat 13:45  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Mat 13:46  Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.)

Scofield writes:

The true Church, “one body” formed by the Holy Spirit (1Co_12:12-13). As Israel is the hid treasure, so the Church is the pearl of great cost. Covering the same period of time as the mysteries of the kingdom, is the mystery of the Church; (Rom_16:25-26); (Eph_3:3-10); (Eph_5:32). Of the true Church a pearl is a perfect symbol:

(1) A pearl is one, a perfect symbol of unity (1Co_10:17); (1Co_12:12); (1Co_12:13); (Eph_4:4-6).

(2) a pearl is formed by the accretion, and that not mechanically, but vitally, through a living one, as Christ adds to the Church (Act_2:41); (Act_2:47); (Act_5:14); (Act_11:24); (Eph_2:21); (Col_2:19).

(3) Christ, having given Himself for the pearl, is now preparing it for presentation to Himself (Eph_5:25-27). The kingdom is not the Church, but the true children of the kingdom during the fulfillment of these mysteries, baptized by one Spirit into one body (1Co_12:12-13) compose the true Church, the pearl.

The seven twelves connects the Lamb’s bride.

Yes this wall is much like the stones Joshua placed at and in the River Jordan.

Jos 4:8  And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD spake unto Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid them down there.
Jos 4:9  And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.
Jos 4:10  For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of Jordan, until every thing was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to speak unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and the people hasted and passed over.

It is a sign to all that enter her gates of the ministries of God from the old Earth.

1.) Salvation is of the Jews:

Joh 4:21  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
Joh 4:22  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

2.) The Apostles preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ and began the Church Age.

Act 2:14  But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
Act 2:15  For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
Act 2:16  But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
Act 2:17  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
Act 2:18  And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
Act 2:19  And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
Act 2:20  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
Act 2:21  And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

3.) It is through the Church that the gateway to Heaven was revealed:

Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Yes this wall is a memorial to the work of God throughout all the ages and is for all to see for eternity.

There is and always has been only one way to Heaven!

Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

And that through a “Bloody Cross”!

By the way that city would be 1500 miles long, 1500 miles wide, and 1500 miles high.
That wall would be 216 feet high and would encircle the entire city. The wall is not there for protection it is there for a memorial.

*****Our text:

Rev 21:19  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, an emerald;
Rev 21:20  The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
Rev 21:21  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.

The foundations:

1.) Jasper—–Wisdom

The people who accept God’s gift are wise.

Hos 14:9  Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

2.) Sapphire——-Repentance

A change of mind.

Mat 21:28  But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
Mat 21:29  He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

3.) Chalcedony——-shaped by the Lord

Isa 44:24  Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

4.) Emerald——-Green the color of “Grace”

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

5.) Sardonyx——The Red “blood” of Calvary, The purity of White

Eph 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Rev 7:14  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Heb 9:14  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Heb 9:15  And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

6.) Sardius——-Behold the face of God

Rev 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.

7.) Chrysolite——The Healing Stone

1Co 10:4  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

1Pe 2:24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

8.) Beryl——–Life giving force

Rom 6:22  But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

9.) Topaz——Protection against enemies

Eph 6:13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Eph 6:14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
Eph 6:15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Eph 6:16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Eph 6:17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

10.) Chrysoprasus——-No struggles or fights

Rev 21:4  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.

11.) Jacinth——-God’s riches

Mar 10:21  Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

12.) Amethyst——–Led by the Holy Spirit

Rev 22:17  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.

Those Pearly Gates:

The Pearl is a gem that is not mined but is made by life itself. Jesus Christ is life and He has covered us from all sin until we have become a lively stone.

Eph 2:20  And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

*****Our text:

Rev 21:22  And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
Rev 21:23  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.
Rev 21:24  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.
Rev 21:25  And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
Rev 21:26  And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
Rev 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.

To review:

1.) God will be the Temple along with the Lamb. (One and the same)
2.) Eternal life begins. (No darkness anywhere)
3.) All that are saved will glorify this great city.
4.) Those that live eternally can enter in and out forever.
5.) Your name must be in the Lamb’s Book Of Life.

Why not accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior today, right now.

It’s simple.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and therefore in need of a Savior. I know that you are that Savior and I believe with all my heart. I ask you to come into my heart and save me today. Thank you for saving me. Amen

If you pray that prayer with all your heart and mean it YOU WILL BE SAVED AT THAT VERY MOMENT and the Holy Ghost will begin His work of sanctification on you immediately. Remember you are only one step from your old sinful life and it will take a while for God to move you away from what you used to be because you are now a New Person because you have been “Born Again”.

Lets Pray!
