The Holy City New Jerusalem – A Prepared Place For A Prepared People

In the Book of Rev 21:23 John the Revelator says (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) Verse 24 says (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 honor into it. Verse 25 Says ( And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day : for there shall be no night there. Verse 26 Says (And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. And Verse 27 Says (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. So we see the New Jerusalem is a prepared place for a prepared people. The New Jerusalem did not just fall from the sky, or arrive on the end of a cosmic nuclear blast. Nor was it formed in a scientific lab, by the process of photosynthesis. Besides being the final home of the Redeemed of God and the Lamb. The New Jerusalem is the Celestial Enclosure of the Bride. Everyone is familiar with the Kraft Food Company? Kraft is the parent company, but inside Kraft you will find: General Foods, Oscar Mayer, Planters, Country Time, Crystal Light, Kool Aid, Maxwell House Coffee, Miracle Whip, Stove Top Stuffing, etc. And So it is with the New Jerusalem Inside the New Jerusalem can be found everything that the bride of Christ needs to assist her, in her preparations for the marriage supper of the Lamb. The New Jerusalem a prepared place for a prepared people. In the Book of Rev 14:1 it reveals the mystery behind the prepared people.( 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. Verse 2 says (And I heard a voice from Heaven , as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: Verse 3 says (And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beast, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb. Verse 5 says (And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. There are a lot of people that believe that this scripture has no bearings on them at all, that the Bible is talking about angels or a special group of individuals. But when we look at the latter part of the fourth verse we see that: these were redeemed from among men. The word redeem means to Ransom, free, or rescue, to free from the consequences of sin. Angels do not need to be redeemed, because they never sin. They do not understand the concept of sin, having never tasted the consequences which is death. These hundred and Forty Four thousand was redeemed from among, the word among means: in or through the mist, in the number, in shares to each of, by common actions. These were regular people in the beginning but not in the end. The first thing they did was to sing a new song. You did not hear this song on the radio, you could not buy it at Walmart. You could not pull it up on iTunes, Because no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. Their Life was the song, they song the song through their life, the Bible describe them as being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb. None had reached that height or transcended to that level. There are many different songs being song throughout the land today, Here’s one on the religious top ten list. If I pay my tithes or sow a seed in a ministry, then the lord is going to give me a new car, a new house, or a big bank account never mind how I live, I don’t have to live a sanctified life just as long as I keep laying down the green. There is and old saying that goes like this, you can sing a lie just as easy as you can tell one. The late Brother Joe May recorded the song entitled, I want to live the life I sing about in my song. The hundred and forty and four thousand were Transfigured, Changed, Glorified, Paul explained it further in 1Cor 15 50:53(Now this I say brethren that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Verse 51 says (Behold I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep but we, shall all be changed.) Verse 52 says (In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: For the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed. Verse 53 says (For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.) Now just In case you are wondering how all of this is going to take place, Zechariah 4:6 makes it very clear it says( Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, this is the word of the lord unto Ze-Rub-ba-bel saying, not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the lord of host. It will not be done by a super computer or a trip to mars. Paul summed it up in the 8 chapter of Romans the 11 verse ( But if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his spirit that dwelleth in you. Not by our works, nor by our goodness, but by his spirit. I Cor 12:3 (And that no man can say that Jesus is the lord, but by the Holy Ghost. A prepared people for a prepared place.)
