The Bride, Heavenly Jerusalem, Comes After the Last Judgment?

 

2-5__

 

 

 

[False Claim]

In Revelation 21, the new Jerusalem comes down after the redemption work finishes and the first heaven and the first earth pass away. Therefore, the teaching that Jerusalem Mother comes to save people before that happens is wrong.

  • Rev 21:1-2 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God . . .

[Countermeasure]

1. Does the revelation always take place in order as it is seen?

When the Apostle John saw the revelation, he “saw” the new heaven and the new earth and then he “saw” the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down. The Apostle John recorded in the order as he saw, but this does not mean that the incidents will take place, following the order seen by John.
Will the revelations “always” take place in order? Not always! If we think that revelations occur according to the order the Apostle John saw, there will be a lot of contradictions. For example, in Rev 16:19, Babylon the Great was totally destroyed through God’s judgment (through the seventh last disaster). In Rev 17:1, however, it is seen that Babylon the great prostitute sits on many waters and commits adultery with the kings of the earth. If we only interpret the revelation according to the order recorded in the Bible, what do the words mean? Babylon would totally be destroyed and then restored to tempt the world again and is destroyed again by God’s wrath like the records of Revelation 18. However, no one will think so. If it occurs in order, how can we explain the words of Rev 15:1, “With the seven last plagues, God’s wrath is completed?” Like this, the revelation does not always take place in order as it is seen.
Therefore, expanding the meaning of revelation with the insistence that the city of the new Jerusalem comes down after the Last Judgment Day is a wrong and hasty conclusion. In order to understand the true meaning of Rev 21:1-2, we need to compare it with all prophecies of the Bible.

2. The reality of the heavenly Jerusalem, the bride who comes down before the Last Judgment

The prophecies of the Bible clearly testify that the bride who is the reality of the new Jerusalem comes down before the new heaven and the new earth appear―before the redemption work finishes. Let’s examine this.

1) After the redemption work finishes, is there any reason to call those who are thirsty?

If the first heaven and the first earth passed away, it means that the redemption work is completely finished. If then, why does the bride [heavenly Jerusalem] say to those who are thirsty, “Come to receive the water of life [eternal life]”? If the redemption work finished, there must be no one who is thirsty and there is no need to invite them. However, why is it that She still calls those who are thirsty?

Compare Rev 22:17 with Jn 7:37. When Jesus came to the earth in the flesh 2,000 years ago, Jesus said that He would give the water of life to those who were thirsty and said loudly, “If anyone is thirsty, come to me.” Isn’t it the same with the scene of Rev 22:17? Therefore, the appearance of the bride who is the new Jerusalem must come before the redemption work finishes.

2) Why does Jerusalem, the source of the water of life, appear before the last disaster?

The bride [heavenly Jerusalem] in Revelation is the source of the water of life (Rev 22:17). Therefore, if the heavenly Jerusalem appears after the first heaven and the first earth pass away, the Jerusalem the source of the water of life must not appear before the last disaster.

However, the prophet Zechariah prophesied that all nations would come to Jerusalem the source of the water of life, and after that, those who fight against Jerusalem and do not go up to Jerusalem would be destroyed by plague. In other words, before the last plague and judgment, the heavenly Jerusalem the source of the water of life appears.

If the heavenly Jerusalem, the source of the water of life, comes down after the Last Judgment as they insist, there should be no plague after that, right? However, the prophet Zechariah prophesied that those who do not go up to Jerusalem after the appearance of Jerusalem would have their flesh, eyes and tongues rot while they are still standing on their feet.

Therefore, their insistence totally conflicts with the Bible. The heavenly Jerusalem, the source of the water of life, must appear before the last plague.

  • Zec 14:8 On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter.
  • Zec 14:16-18 Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no rain. If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The LORD will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • Zec 14:12 This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.

3) When does Eve appear in the creation work in six days?

The creation work in six days recorded in Genesis 1 is the prophecy about the redemption work in 6,000 years (2 Pe 3:8). And the Sabbath on the seventh day refers to the Sabbath for a thousand years after the 6,000 years of the redemption work (Heb 4:3-6; Rev 20:6). Adam and Eve in the prophecy refer to the Spirit and the bride (Ro 5:14; 1 Co 15:45). However, when does Eve appear? She appears on the sixth day right before the day of Sabbath, the seventh day. Therefore, the bride who is the reality of Eve appears in the last age right before we enter the Sabbath of a thousand years.

4) When does Jesus appear again together with the bride?

According to Rev 22:17, the Spirit is with the bride. Who is the Spirit? Studying Revelation chapters 19 and 21, the Spirit is the Lamb who is the Second Coming Jesus (Jn 14:26; Mt 28:19). When is Jesus prophesied to appear a second time? It is prophesied that He will come before the Last Judgment when the eternal kingdom of heaven is near (Lk 21:27-28). Therefore, the bride [heavenly Jerusalem], too, comes before the Last Judgment Day when the eternal kingdom is near.

3. Conclusion

If we put together many prophecies of the Bible we have studied so far, the bride, Jerusalem Mother who comes to give us the water of life, appears before the first heaven and the first earth pass away. Therefore, the prophecy of Revelation 21 tells that as Heavenly Mother comes down to the earth, we come to receive the water of life from Heavenly Mother and enter the eternal kingdom of heaven which is the new heaven and the new earth. In the prophecy of the creation work in six days, God’s last work was to create Eve and right after the appearance of Eve, the Sabbath came. In the same way, after the appearance of the bride, Jerusalem our Mother who comes as the reality of the last Eve, the eternal kingdom of heaven (Sabbath, new heaven and new earth) where there is no death comes. So the appearance of the new heaven and the new earth and the heavenly Jerusalem are seen together in Revelation 21.
Therefore, their insistence that the heavenly Jerusalem must come down after the new heaven and the new earth appear on the basis of the order of revelation is all wrong.

<Supplementary Explanation>

According to Revelation 21 and 22, the Bible explains as if Heavenly Mother and the city of heavenly Jerusalem are the same one without a certain distinction. The reason is as follows.

First, it is because Heavenly Mother, who is the bride, and the city of heavenly Jerusalem have an inseparable relationship. We cannot go to the city of heavenly Jerusalem without through Heavenly Mother. Whoever comes to Heavenly Mother and is born again through the water of life, has already come to the city of heavenly Jerusalem. It is just as Jesus said that the kingdom of God had come (Lk 11:20) when He preached the gospel on the earth 2,000 years ago. So Heavenly Mother’s coming to the earth is seen as the heavenly Jerusalem city coming to the earth.

Second, the redemption work Heavenly Mother fulfills on the earth is very similar with what will happen in the city of the heavenly Jerusalem. For example, the scene where all nations come to Heavenly Mother to receive the water of life is the same with the scene where the saints who received salvation come to the heavenly Jerusalem city where God dwells, as the royal priesthood and enjoy the blessing of the water of life. So the scene of receiving the water of life through Heavenly Mother and the scene of receiving the water of life in the heavenly Jerusalem city are seen as the same with no distinction at all.

This way is similar with other prophecies of the Bible, which are fulfilled as a shadow and its reality at once. The cases that show a shadow and its reality at once are the prophecy of Isaiah 41 and 46, which shows the prophecy about King Cyrus and the Second Coming Jesus at the same time, and Jesus’ prophecy (Matthew 24) showing both the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. and the Last Judgment.

      Yes. No one can deny the prophecies about our God the Mother! 🙂 Those who oppose who do not have any knowledge about the prophecies must at least have knowledge about the process of how the Bible was put together. But sadly they don’t.

    I think and wonder that if Heavenly Jerusalem appears after the judgement of God,for what should she appear to the earth?
    As you know, “judging the earth” means destroying the world not only one country, but whole world( Isa 24:1~)
    After being judge the earth, none need to come again to the earth
    So, Heavenly Jerusalem Mother has to come with her bridegroom to save the earth b4 judgement(Rev19:7~/ 22:17)
    The bible has each mates
    be careful interpreting the bible!!
    I wanna give thank n praise to mother for letting me save from the earth

    I am a member of the WMSCOG but I have strayed away, even after knowing so many truths that lead to salvation… even ignoring my sisters’ calls and everything. 🙁 But lately, I’ve been feeling uneasy after hearing about North Korea’s threats to attack the US and S. Korea, because I remember this is all a part of prophecy. I’m so afraid to die because I think I missed Passover… I don’t know what to do… I’m so sorry Heavenly Mother for leaving your side. 🙁

    It is very clear explain for us to Heavenly Jerusalem, Heavenly Mother, who give us the water of life.
    No one can receive salvation without the redemption work of Heavenly Mother.
    Heavenly Mother come to the earth to give eternal life through the new covenant Passover in this Holy Spirit age.
    Don’t interpret just one or two verse, we should be interpret thinking the relationship of the overall context of the bible.
    Heavenly Jerusalem Mother already come to this earth to give us eternal life and endless love .
    I will give all thanks and praise to Heavenly Mother for coming to this earth to save our soul.

      Me too.
      The character of the book of Revelation already inform us the real meaning of this. But I could not have knowledge about this. And the meaning of New Jerusalem temple indicates God the mother who allow us eternal life from there. If I miss some point of this, I might not receive the truth. So I will study more dilligently the bible.

    This was very informative! When Jesus said the kingdom of God is near He was referring to himself(Lk 11:20). You can not separate Jesus and His kingdom…. It is the same with the Holy City New Jerusalem and Jerusalem our Mother. They are one in the same! So amazing and enlightening when I read these post.

    Their claims are really juvenile. They don’t even know how the Bible was formed into one book! How can the people who do not even know the origin of the Bible try to go against the World Mission Society Church of God? Shameful!
    You need the basic knowledge or the origin of the Bible to assure your faith that God the Mother is truly our God. If you did, you cannot deny Her!

    These are all from the Bible!
    1. The Spirit and the Bride come to give us the free gift of the water of life, that is, eternal life[Rev. 22:17]
    2. The Bride is the wife of the Lamb, Heavenly Jerusalem.[Rev 21:9~10]
    3. Heavenly Jerusalem is our Mother.[Gal 4:26]

    Considering 1. 2. 3., it’s SO natural that Heavenly Jerusalem, God the Mother, will appear to give us “eternal life” BEFORE the last judgment!!

    God Almighty came down to this earth just in order to redeem the whole mankind.
    Even though we are all sinners, God came to seek and save us, sinners.
    Those who are against the truth and the words of God need to understand how deep is God love toward us, mere sinners!
    There is no point for them to argue about the truth of WMSCOG and more importantly, they also need to listen to God’s words and take an action to be saved in this last judgement.

    Truly give thanks to God for coming down to this earth so that we can know and fully understand this wonderful truth.
    I used to be so scared when reading revelation. But now everything is so much clearer and so so touching.
    Clearly Bible says that God the Mother exist!
    Rev 21:22 “…God Almighty and the Lamb are it’s temple…”
    Lamb is Father Ahnsahnghongnim then who’s the Almighty God? Surely there’s 2 Gods our Father and Mother

    This is amazing truth that clearly the Bible testify about Heavenly Mother. If we take a look again in the Book of Revelation 22:18-19, the Bible warn us that we cannot adds or either takes words away from the book of the prophecy. Nowadays many people increase in knowledge that leads them astray, because they did not follow in accordance with riches of the full knowledge of God but they understand and interpret the Bible by their own understanding, even though the Bible clearly testify about the Bride of the Spirit [God the Father] is our Heavenly Mother. People who denied Heavenly Mother denied the Bible. It is clear that the Bride of the Holy Spirit, calling us, “Come!” (Rev. 22:17) is God who will give us water of life namely eternal life in the Last Day along with God the Father. How can they denied the truth which is the Bible prophesied that the Bride the Holy City, Jerusalem (Rev.22:9-10) is the wife of the Lamb [Jesus] (Jn 1:29), the Second Coming Jesus (Heb. 9:28, Rom 5:14) is the Heavenly Jerusalem our Mother (Galatians 4:26) that will appear in a flesh in the Last Day to save mankind who are destined to die. Salvation will only be given by God the Mother who is the source of the water of life. Whoever wishes stream to the living water without delay and be forgiven by receiving Heavenly Mother who is eternal. Thanks to the great love and sacrifice of heavenly Mother for saving us and allow us go back to heaven. Eternal glory to Father AhnSahngHong and New Jerusalem Heavenly Mother who saves us.

    As Jesus was prophesied in the Bible. so was God the Mother.
    In this age of the Holy Spirit, only through the bride and the Spirit, salvation is given so that all mankind can step forward to the eternal life and enter the kingdom of heaven.

    If Jerusalem is not a person but a place, what would be wrong with the prophecy of the book of Galatians chapter 4?
    It clearly testifies that Heavenly Jerusalem is our Mother who gave birth to us before the creation of the earth.
    We are the chosen people since the beginning of the earth and for our grievous sin, God the Father and God the Mother came down to this earth.
    For their unconditional and great love and mercy for this sinful mankind, our thanks should be forever and ever more

    After the last judgment, there is no work of redemption.
    Before that day, we are to receive eternal life!
    Then, who on earth can give us eternal life?
    Yes, God the Mother only!
    So, their insistence is not true!

      Amen, Since there is no death in the Heavenly kingdom, everything is everlasting, so we can not enter the heaven with our mortal body, That’s the reason why Heavenly mother shld come “before” the last judgment to give us eternal life.
      Plz, rememer that the purpose of her coming as the bride with the spirit is to give us water of life which can make us immortal body .

      So true.

      While living on this earth, we should repent and receive God the Mother as well as God the Father to have the promise of the forgiveness of sins.

    Even if the prophecy of revelation take place in order as it is seen is true, the opposers never understand the redemption work of God. The reason why Heavenly Jerusalem come down is to find the lost children and give them the eternal life. After gathering the Children of God in this earth, the opposers will regret their ignorance and evil acts.

    Heavenly Mother is with us now on this earth. She is God Almighty but only for us, She sacrifices Herself only for this mere sinner. Without checking through the Bible, we can not judge what is right or wrong.
    All truths about Heavenly Mother are in the Bible, which is truly secret given for all chosen ones.

    Without Heavenly Mother(God the Mother; New Jerusalem), there is no eternal life…
    We really need our heavenly Mother for our salvation..before the last judgment as prophesied in the bible.
    I hope you to receive the Bride; Heavenly Jerusalem who came to this earth in the flesh according to all the prophecies along with the Spirit (God the Father; Christ Ahnsahnghong; the 2nd Coming Christ) in this age of Holy Spirit and go to eternal heaven where Heavenly Father and Mother are waiting for you together…God Bless You..

    This is why we have to meet God the Mother in the flesh before that day!
    Only those who follow God the Mother will be saved among the last disasters!
