And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. Revelation 21:10-14 KJV
For our citizenship is in heaven; whence also we wait for a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the working whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself. Philippians 3:20-21 ASV
“Then the Angel which supported me took me aside to show me
the magnificence of those who would be called “Overcomers”. Even these who
forsook all things to be like their Lord. I saw in its entire scope the New
Jerusalem from the bottom to the top including the foundations as though they
were steps going upward and ending at the base of the Gates and the Jasper
Wall. Far above the pinnacle of the City on the top of the Mount Zion in the
midst of the City I saw a fire enfolding in upon itself and in the midst of the
billowing waves of fire a Throne set and One who sat upon the Throne, even the
Ancient of Days, The Lord God Almighty, The Great I Am That I Am that Moses
knew. As I looked at the fire it began to grow and to envelop other parts of

Take great care of your physical body you live in and cherish it, for it is that very same body which the Lord is coming to glorify. This is the same body which is destined for the appearing of Christ when He comes again and fashions your body like unto His body which was raised from the dead. Right now, your body is corruptible, mortal, but your very body MUST put on incorruption, this mortality MUST put on immortality. It is the body you were born and live in now which will change. Every portion of your cellular structure and every part of your physical makeup will be brought into a holy image of Jesus, like a holy myriad, so you are destined in the body in which you dwell in to be changed. Right now, your body is corruptible, but it must put on this incorruption which will never fade away. Right now your body is mortal, subject to pain, injury, sick, in need of surgeries or in need of help to fight deadly diseases. A body rife at times with pain or frailty. It is that very same body which Jesus is going to CHANGE!
The coming of the Lord will be this way. The Lord will come and His Glory will be seen by they that have overcome all things to stand fast in the true measure of the Lord. When the time comes for Jesus to descend from Heaven with a shout, it is the Overcomer who will hear that shout and will rise up to meet Him. The mystery of our resurrection will be that we will in that moment be changed. The Lord first will set the light of His glory into the midst of the dust and ashes of the dead bodies of saints who in their lives overcame. And bringing together their bodies, they will arise through the soils of the earth to stand upon the earth in bodies of eternal light and glory. And we who are still alive will have the Lord first come on to our brows. As He does light upon us, He will envelop us within with the light of His resurrection life. As the Lord comes He will come with the life flow of His blood, even the blood of The Lord Jesus Christ. At the first this blood which is precious will flow through your brow and fill your mind, the tissues of your brain, then your blood vessels, through the organs of your body and through the arms and the legs, filling your arteries and veins with the very blood of The Lord Jesus Christ, and you dear Overcomer, will be eternally glorified. And this coming will happen IN ONE MOMENT OF TIME, EVEN IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE. This dear reader IS THE 1st RESURRECTION. Once this happens, you will see Jesus Himself in His resurrected body, will embrace Him, handle Him, hold Him in a tangible reality. Your faith will be fulfilled.
To you dear reader shall this coming be. Your physical imperfect body will be changed to a physical perfect glorified body in which there is no death or malady. Your thoughts will no longer be dwelling on that which was to you a myriad of testings and trials, for your testings and trials will be at an end. And you will be complete as a New Creation. This trumpet shall sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible and we who are alive and remain will be changed. Your corruption MUST put on incorruption, and your mortal MUST put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. Here is the end of your testings, the goal that is in plain sight, your end dear Overcomer, is a glorified body. The Lord is going to bring forth upon this earthen globe a company of Sons and Daughters who will set this creation free of death and of destruction, who will bring creation into the liberty afforded to them by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. One thing that I know for reality is that the thoughts that God Himself has and the thoughts that will be in the minds of those glorified will be the very same thoughts. As God thinks, so will you think and as you think so will God think. Amazing indeed the end of our faith!
There is much here, volumes of information from the Lord which will set us free to know and to understand our present walk and where it is we are coming to. We call this study “The New Creation”. For that is our end. That is the consummation of our walk, of our tribulations, of our trials in this life. That in the end we will be ONLY a New Creation, nothing else. And the revelation of the 12 foundation stones and the 12 Apostles of the Lamb are pictures of what our daily walk will end in, and that is the unlimited fullness of The Ancient of Days without measure upon each and every Son and Daughter of God.
Millenniums of time have passed by, centuries of world history, and through it all the saints of the Lord who have overcome all things have been but a very few. Small in number is this mighty Army. Through each and every age, through each and every century and decade these who have overcome have had the hope of His appearing. Saints have lived and died hoping for THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD. Now, upon our generation this which has been hoped for has finally come. We are now at the brink of this great manifestation when the Sons and Daughters of God will be glorified. This which all creation since the fall has hoped for has now come upon us, we the saints of this day. For the Lord HAS CUT US OFF. He has fully separated us UNTO HIMSELF. And it is this separation which was painful, not always pleasant, and hurtful, not always based in sideways fellowships and friendships, even with these who continue to bear their personal crosses.
The world will stop in its tracks when this happens. For the Lord shall glorify these and all the world systems will come to an immediate end. Tangible, in bodies deathless, these shall be seen and felt and known by the Nations of the earth. Then shall they know that The Lord Jesus Christ alone is exalted to the right hand of God. Then shall all the Nations know the true gospel, the true desire of God to restore mankind and to re-make man into His very own image. Arise and shine dear Overcomer, for your light has come, and the Glory of the Lord has arisen upon you! This is our hour to be readied for that which all creation for millenniums has longed for, even the manifestation of the Sons and the Daughters of God! We continue to wait for all His purposes to be worked out so we can truly see the fulfillment of these promises. Know dear reader, IT SHALL SURELY COME.
Your flesh shall put on incorruption. Your mortal shall put on immortality. You shall be changed, this is the true reality, not a false hope on empty doctrine, but truth in the inward parts. During this time when darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people, the Lord will arise upon you, and His glory shall be seen in you, and all nations shall come to the brightness of your rising. The end of your trials dear Overcomer is HIS APPEARING IN YOU. This world is about to change, AND YOU WILL CHANGE IT. In your very veins will flow the blood of The Lord Jesus Christ, your blood will be no more. In the cells of your flesh will be the glory eternal lasting for ceaseless ages. And you dear Overcomers will be the ones in whom this glory is revealed. This dear Overcomer is TRUE REALITY.
Come with me now to the bottom of the base
Then, when He has finally glorified you and has come into you without measure, you can go to those you lost, those who through death left your side and you can forever commune with them and grant unto them their new bodies. You can go to the sick, the heart broken, the failing lives in this world and show them the unlimited glory of God which is their portion. You can teach the nations the first principles of the doctrine of Christ by simply BEING as you are, GLORIFIED. The entire world is about to stop in its ways and in its efforts and instead will sit to learn of the life of Christ and of His Overcomers. It is to you that this honor will come. You who have lost everything including loved ones and children, to you shall this honor of glorification come, and you will have no thought any more of what once was. Gone from you will be any remembrance of the former things. Gone from you will be any recollection of the sorrows you once bore. You will have NO RESTRAINT from walking amongst the living in the earth and amongst those who lay in death, waiting for resurrection. To both the dead and the living shall you be seen. You in your glorified state. And you will have NO SEPARATION FROM ANY OF THEM. Your life will be a life glorified, a life used by God to bring the rest of creation into full liberty in the New Creation which God has promised. For behold, He makes ALL THINGS NEW. And you dear Overcomer will be the vessel through which this will happen.
Come now, to these foundation stones, to the
Apostles of the Lamb, and together we will learn what it means to arise in
fullness and in completeness in the
This Dear Overcomer, is what God is bringing you to.
You walked day by day to learn obedience and to endure your trials. Your whole purpose was to be found faithful in the Lord.
God’s entire purpose was to bring you to the place where you would have glorified flesh.
That Dear Overcomer, will come now upon you.
