The New Yerushalayim
Brothers and Sisters !!
SOMETIMES IT IS THE SIMPLE THINGS WE OVERLOOK IN TURAH, BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN TOLD SOMETHING ELSE. THEN WHEN WE SEE WHAT IS ACTUALLY WRITTEN IN TURAH, WE FIND IT HARD TO ACCEPT.
For instance just read these Scriptures - Rev 21:1-2. "And I saw a renewed heaven and a renewed arets, for the former heaven and the former arets had passed away and the sea is no more".
This Scripture tells us that the earth and heavens were renewed, in other words, what was, no longer existed. They! the heavens and the earth as they were, had been destroyed and made clean and new, because Yahuah wants everything beautiful for His Bride. Yahukanon (John) is describing this prophetic vision to us as we read.
Verse 2 says, "And I, Yahukanon, saw the set apart city, renewed Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from Yahuah, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband". In the process of this vision we can now understand and see that Shamayim (which means "where he is," in another dimension) is called the heaven (not the pagan heaven that is mixed into christianity). This is our city where the Bride lives and a lot of people think this city will come down and sit near the city of David, Jerusalem itself, another thing we have been told.
ONE THING THAT IS GREATLY OVERLOOKED AND MISUNDERSTOOD IS VERSE 22, "AND I SAW NO MISHKAN (TEMPLE) IN IT, FOR YAHUAH AL SHADDAI IS IT'S MISHKAN, AND THE LAMB".
Many believers today have been told by other men, to build a temple in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount and are believing it is Yahuah's will. Instead, old prophecies have been rehashed and prophesied again, as though that prophecy is still too come. When we look at the Scriptures above Israel and Jerusalem have been destroyed, so that when the Bride-city comes down from Yahuah it will be in the place that Yahuah wants which will be cleansed and renewed. Jerusalem as it stands today will be destroyed by fire and the New Yerushalayim will not have a temple in it. Men go on and on about rebuilding the temple but if we are to receive what Yahukanon has prophesied we pour our trust into the Turah and not what men say.
