Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: On such the second Death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with Him a thousand years! When the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations, Gog and Magog, to gather them to battle: They will compass the camp of the saints, the beloved city, and fire will come down from God out of Heaven and will devour them. The devil that deceived them will be cast into the lake of fire!
Just as God stretched out the Heavens as a curtain and spread them out as a tent to dwell in, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all is after the second veil: The temple of God will be opened in Heaven and there will His temple, the ark of His Testament, be seen!
Then, a great white throne will be seen, and Him that sits on it, from whose face the Earth and the Heaven fled away! The dead will stand before God and the books will be opened. Another book will also be opened: The Book of Life! Then, the sea will give up the dead which are in it; and Death and Hell will deliver up the dead which are in them: The dead will be judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works… Death and Hell will be cast into the lake of fire: Thus, there will be no more sea! This is the second Death... Then, a new Heaven and a new Earth will be seen: For the first Heaven and the first Earth have passed away!
I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife: That great city, the Holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God, having the glory of God! Jerusalem which is above is free, the mother of us all: A city which has foundations whose builder and maker is God… Her light is clear as crystal! It has a wall great and high, and twelve gates, and at the gates are twelve angels: And the street of the city is pure gold! There is no temple there: For the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city has no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: For the glory of God lightens it, and the Lamb is its light!
And a pure river of water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeds out of the throne of God and of the Lamb! In the midst of the street and on either side of the river, is the Tree of Life, which bears twelve types of fruit and yields her fruit every month, while the leaves of the Tree are for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: But the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it. They shall see His face and His Name shall be in their foreheads!
And a great voice out of Heaven will say: Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and God Himself shall be with them! God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more Death, neither shall there be any more pain: For the former things are passed away, behold, I make all things new! Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of My God: As a living stone, chosen of God and precious! For, as lively stones, you are built up into a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. And I will write upon him the Name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, New Jerusalem which comes down out of Heaven: The city of the Living God, the Heavenly Jerusalem, and an innumerable company of angels!
Now therefore, if you will obey My voice indeed and keep My Covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure to Me above all people: You shall be unto me a Kingdom of priests and a Holy nation, through Jesus Christ who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood! You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit!
Holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus: For such a High Priest became us, who is holy, harmless, not defiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the Heavens! He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy.
Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away. For we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens: That mortality might be swallowed up by Life!
God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ. For by grace are you saved through faith, and that, not of yourselves: It is the gift of God!
