NOTE: Back in the early 80's Kelley Varner preached a series of 12 sermons on the 12 Gates of the New Jerusalem. Each Gate had one of the 12 tribes of Israel written upon it. The Wall of the City had 12 foundations, and on them12 names of the 12 apostles of the Lamb were inscribed.
The “number 12” in Scripture is associated with perfect government. In Christ's Kingdom manifested, the 12 apostles will sit on 12 thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel. Jesus gave this promise to them.
The 19 sentences in this paragraph set forth a close description of the New Jerusalem, the Bride of the Lamb. The Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the Light of this City. At the end of the Millennium, this City shall descend from heaven to earth. It is a 1500 mile cube.
In “Visions Beyond the Veil” by H. A. Baker, we see this city in 3 levels, with the largest at the bottom, taking on the shape of a pyramid, suspended one above another. The Top level is where we find God's Throne. Whoever will take the time and opportunity to read this book, will not be disappointed. Some 40 or so orphans and beggars in Kunming, China, were visited by God over two three week periods. The visions they received major much on the Book of Revelation. Many of these little Chinese boys simultaneously were taken to heaven, and when Mr. Baker quizzed them, they had identical reports, seeing they were there at the same time. When he asked them, “Well, how did you learn about these things up there?” They then told him “Some of our friends who died and went to heaven ahead of us told us. Or, an angel told us. Or, Jesus or one of the apostles told us.”
Some one gave me a copy of this book in Victoria in 1944 just after I became a Christian in the Canadian Navy. This book along with the biographies of George Muller, Rees Howells and Oswald Chambers, have very strongly shaped my thinking and understanding on this section of the Book of Revelation. J.A.W.
