New Jerusalem


One of the seven angels who hold the bowls of the last plagues saying,

“Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb(New Jerusalem)”- Revelation 21:9.


Angel would to show apostle John how great and bright of the holy city “New Jerusalem“.


Revelation 21:10-16

10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, 

11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 

12 It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed— 

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 on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And the one who spoke with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city and its gates and walls. 

16 The city lies foursquare, its length the same as its width. And he measured the city with his rod, 12,000 stadia. Its length and width and height are equal. 


Isaiah 62:1,2

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
    and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet,
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
    and her salvation as a burning torch.

The nations shall see your righteousness,
    and all the kings your glory,
and you shall be called by a new name(New Jerusalem)
    that the mouth of YHWH will give.



Revelation 21:17 He also measured its wall, 144 cubits by human measurement, which is also an angel’s measurement. 



Revelation 21:18-21

18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 

19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of jewel. The first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 

20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.


The New Jerusalem is designed and created by the most top designer YHWH God, this will be the “real” city and come down from the heaven. The design of New Jerusalem is according 144000 saints and the real Israel(heavenly Israel). So it can be said the New Jerusalem means 144000 saints, they are the real Israel.


Isaish 62:12

And they shall be called The Holy People(Saints),
    The Redeemed of YHWH;
and you shall be called Sought Out,
    A City Not Forsaken.


Revelation 7:4-8

4 And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:

12,000 from the tribe of Judah were sealed,
12,000 from the tribe of Reuben,
12,000 from the tribe of Gad,


Firstly the city wall is designed and built based on the 12 jewels foundations(12 apostles), it means the foundation of 144000 saints are 12 apostles, they are built upon the 12 apostles. The city is foursquare, its length 12,000 stadia same as its width. The city has total 12 gates, each side are 3 gates.


What does it mean of the gates? What is the function of gate? We know if you want to enter the city, you must through the gate otherwise on one can enter. So that means people can enter the city only through 12 gates. Why or what is the purpose of them to enter the city? Because they want to “see his face” YHWH God, “and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, 25 and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. 26 They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations”-Revelation 21:24-26.


Isaiah 61:6 “but you shall be called the priests of YHWH; they shall speak of you as the ministers of our God;


“The wall itself is 144 cubits by human measurement, which is also an angel’s measurement”. What does it mean? Maybe it represents there are 12 priests to serve God, each month is one shift and one year is 12 shifts, so the total is 144 priests(cubits) one year. Please read <144000 and a great multitude>. And it is designed by human measurement and also the angel’s measurement. What does it mean?


Maybe it means both humans and angels must pass through these gates(through the priests), before they enter the city(New Jerusalem) to see the face of God. The New Jerusalem does not need the physical temple, why? “for its temple is YHWH God the Almighty and the Lamb”.


That’s why revelation 14:1 says, “Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads”.


Exodus 16:9 “and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation“. At that time, the words of God about this covenant will be fulfilled. 144000 saints will form the 12 tribes of real Israel, and each tribe has 12000 priests saints(Revelation 7:4-8). They will form the heavenly kingdom(holy nation), all of them are the priests of the New Jerusalem.


YHWH God and the Lamb will live inside the city, and they are the real temple of Jerusalem. Therefore the only way of humans and angels can see YHWH God and the Lamb is go through the gates(through the priests) into the city New Jerusalem, the real temple(YHWH God and the Lamb) is inside the New Jerusalem.


The length and width and height of New Jerusalem are 12,000 stadia. 12,000 symbolic each tribe of the real and heavenly Israel, and the inter temple is surrounded by every side of length and width and height 12000 stadia(each tribe). The tabernacle(means temple) of Israelis in wilderness was also surrounded by 12 tribes, each side had 3 tribes, this is reflecting and symbolic the real temple is also the inter core of New Jerusalem – Revelation 7:4-8.


We believe this vision of New Jerusalem shall be the real city, the city wall is the real size 144 cubits height has 12 gates to enter to the city. Angels, kings of nations and people those names are written in the book of life can enter into the city through the gates. And the length and width and height of New Jerusalem are equal, 12,000 stadia(over 2000km).


Why we say it is the “real” city? Because it has to fulfill the prophecy of Daniel 4:11 “The tree(rules the kingdom of men, New Jerusalem) grew and became strong, and its top reached to heaven, and it was visible to the end of the whole earth.


Isaiah 61:4 “that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of YHWH, that he may be glorified.



You can see the New Jerusalem picture refer to second photo of this article. Do you know our earth’s atmosphere ia about 500-600 km height, but New Jerusalem city height is over 2000km. That means it is over the atmosphere much much higher, it’s really great and top reached to the heaven. Wow! Is it unbelievable and impossible?


But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”-Matthew 19:26. Is there anything that can be said to be impossible with God? Absolutely no. For all words outgoing of God shall be accomplished for He is the Almighty God.


So the tree(New Jerusalem) “was visible to the end of the whole earth” must be fulfilled, that’s why God said it’s length width and height was 12000 stadia(higher than 2000 km). Please read <The great Top Tree and Seven Periods>. Also Isaiah predicted the “New Jerusalem” will be the highest…


Isaiah 2:2,3

It shall come to pass in the latter days
    that the mountain of the house of YHWH
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
    and shall be lifted up above the hills;
and all the nations shall flow to it,


    and many peoples shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of YHWH,
    to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
    and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
    and the word of YHWH from Jerusalem.


Isaiah 25:6-9

On this mountain YHWH of hosts will make for all peoples
    a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine,
    of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.
And he will swallow up on this mountain
    the covering that is cast over all peoples,
    the veil that is spread over all nations.
    He will swallow up death forever;
and YHWH God will wipe away tears from all faces,
    and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,
    for YHWH has spoken.
It will be said on that day,
    “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.
    This is YHWH; we have waited for him;
    let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”


How joy we are at that time! Come! Let’s enter the New Jerusalem city and see the temple…


Revelation 21:27

22 And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is YHWH God the Almighty and the Lamb. 

23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. 

24 By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, 

25 and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. 

26 They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. 

27 But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.


Isaiah 60:11,19

11 Your gates shall be open continually;
    day and night they shall not be shut,

that people may bring to you the wealth of the nations,
    with their kings led in procession.

19 The sun shall be no more
    your light by day,
nor for brightness shall the moon
    give you light;
but YHWH will be your everlasting light,
    and your God will be your glory
.


There is no need the light of sun or moon in the city, for the glory of Jehovah God is the light and the Lamb is the lamp, and its gates will never be shut. In addition to the the city is actual radiance, the words(light) of God and Lamb will direct the nations’ road. The kings of nations will bring the glory and the honor to the city to glory YHWH God. Please read John chapter 14 and 17, maybe it was what Jesus talking about with the apostles in New Jerusalem.


Revelation 22:15 “Outside(outside New Jerusalem) are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood”.


Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna(the original Greek text Gehenna be translated to hell).


Gehenna” was a physical location outside the Jerusalem city walls in 1st century, where they burned rubbish and where lepers and outcasts were sent, hence the weeping and gnashing of teeth. That’s why Jesus used “Gehenna” the name of that place to explain the total and complete destroyed.


The same, there is a place “Gehenna” outside the New Jerusalem city too, Jesus told us that place’s real name called “the lake of fire” which is the second death.


Revelation 21:8 “as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur”.


Isaiah 66:23,24

23 From new moon to new moon,
    and from Sabbath to Sabbath,
all flesh shall come to worship before me,
declares YHWH.

24 “And they shall go out and look on the dead bodies of the men who have rebelled against me. For their worm shall not die, their fire shall not be quenched, and they shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.”


But “The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son”-Revelation 21:7.


Isaiah 65:17-19

17 “For behold, I create new heavens
    and a new earth,
and the former things shall not be remembered
    or come into mind.
18 But be glad and rejoice forever
    in that which I create;
for behold, I create Jerusalem(New Jerusalem) to be a joy,
    and her people to be a gladness.
19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem(New Jerusalem)
    and be glad in my people;
no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
    and the cry of distress.


Revelation 22:1-5

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 

through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 

No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. 

They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 

And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for YHWH God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.


At that time, there will be the river of the water of life, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the New Jerusalem city. Also the once-disappeared “tree of life” reappears on either side of the river, and “the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month“. In other words, the tree of life yielding its fruit 144 times a year. Maybe it’s related to the 12 priests to serve God per month(one shift), and there are 12 shifts a year. Please read <Tree of Life> and <144000 and a great multitude>.


And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.” – Revelation 21:6


Amen. May all come to drink the water of life. Blessed is the one who come and glory and praise and honor and worship the Creator YHWH God. Amen.


And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. And YHWH the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.”

“And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”- Revelation 22:6,7


Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
