“In that day [the day that the saints shall possess the Kingdom of Heaven] shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will GOD appoint for walls and bulwarks. Open you the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps the TRUTH may enter in. THOU wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on THEE: because he trusts in THEE. Trust you in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength” (Isaiah 26:1-4).
In this city we have no more death, no more sorrow, no crying, neither any more pain—no weakness! Yes, we have a strong city! This city is the epitome of strong. The SPIRIT of GOD in CHRIST carried the Apostle John to a great, high mountain and showed him “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 [a diamond], clear as crystal…
[This city has a wall great and high, the walls of salvation, of which John and Isaiah were prophesying.] And the wall of the city has twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the LAMB [CHRIST, THE WORD of GOD (John 1:1, 14, Revelation 19:13)].
“And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the WALL thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. And the building of the wall of it was of jasper [diamond]: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass” (Revelation 21:10-18).
The wall of the city is of great importance for the LORD. THE WORD (John 1:1) IS OUR WALLED CITY!1 “We have a strong city;” it is eternal—forever (Isaiah 26:1). “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD hath prepared for them that love HIM” (1 Corinthians 2:9).2
All of us who overcome sin, Satan, the world, and Hell shall be members of the New Jerusalem, the eternal city, with eternal life, safe and sound forever behind the walls of Heaven, in Heaven, if we remain in CHRIST, if we faint not!3 We are only able to continue in the faith by staying in the WORD.4
Now, HIS WORD says that Satan has declared war on GOD and us who are HIS saints, HIS temple, and those who are in Heaven.5 JESUS, GOD the WORD, says we are able to win this war against the devil by the BLOOD of the LAMB, JESUS, and the WORD of our testimony (Revelation 12:11).6 CHRIST is the WORD of our testimony.7 We are to learn, study, and teach the TRUE WORD of GOD.8 We are called to deal with the devil’s beast government by, and with, THE WORD of GOD and the BLOOD of JESUS which has cleansed us from all of our former sins.9
Both Daniel the prophet and I had a vision of today’s hateful and violent beast, symbolic of today’s world government kingdom that we are living in at present. As I said, I had a vivid glimpse of what Daniel saw in Daniel 7:7: “After this I saw [it] in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible [exactly like today’s world government, which absolutely hates GOD and HIS people], and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth [triangular from the gum to a sharp point]: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it [seemingly destroyed all that is good]: and it was different from all the beasts [the three other kingdoms10] that were before it [I have never seen such enormous hatred or ever imagined such terrible hatred and evil for GOD, HIS WORD, and HIS people before this in my life]; and it had ten horns.” It is the one-world government kingdom which is ruled, given its power, by the devil himself,11 which is to be smashed, ground to powder by JESUS,12 THE ROCK of AGES, the WORD of GOD, and by us, HIS saints which are HIS BODY, by letting GOD use us, and by our faith in GOD’S power, and by THE BLOOD of the LAMB and the WORD of our testimony, which is JESUS. We will do it if we are going to dwell in that GREAT AND STRONG, WALLED CITY, HEAVEN, forever!
So GOD the WORD, which is CHRIST, has not only bought us and taught us to fight, HE has told us how to fight and win, prevail, overcome, by faith in HIS power!13 Again, it is by the BLOOD of JESUS and THE WORD of our testimony, which is also JESUS. We have no excuse! If we are passive, without zeal, JESUS will spue us out of HIS mouth (Revelation 3:15-16)!
This is the end of time! If you’re lazy, not active, and say you don’t have the energy, you will be sorry for your evil passiveness for eternity. If we work the works of CHRIST in this world, we will have much more than enough rest as we want in Heaven for eternity,14 but if you are passive, are lukewarm here in this world when you can obviously see such a great need, you will work throughout eternity trying to put out the fire of your flames and to get rid of your torments. It cannot ever happen!15 No, this is no time to be lazy, lukewarm, without zeal in faith in HIM!
In the BIBLE, KJV, Mystery Babylon is the head of the one-world government cult which is given its power from the devil.16 “And after these things I saw another angel come down from Heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon [Rome] the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication [her false doctrine and her sinfulness and hatred of GOD, HIS WORD, and HIS people], and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
“And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her [the Roman cult, the world], MY people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins [and hatred of GOD] have reached unto Heaven, and GOD hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the LORD GOD who judgeth her.
“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication [hatred for GOD and HIS commandments] and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city [Rome]! [The seat of Rome is the Vatican. Satan’s seat, GOD says, is Rome, the city of the seven mountains (Revelation 17:9).] for in one hour is thy judgment come.
“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men” (Revelation 18:1-13).
“And I saw a new Heaven and a new earth: for the first Heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, NEW JERUSALEM, coming down from GOD out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of GOD is with men, and HE will dwell with them, and they shall be HIS people, and GOD HIMSELF shall be with them, and be their GOD. And GOD shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And HE that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And HE said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And HE said unto me, It is done. I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his GOD, and he shall be MY son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:1-8).
Saints must have full confidence in the WORD, the power of GOD, and use it the way it must be used to prevail, to win, to overcome the hatred of the devil, his people, and his angels.17 Again, “They overcame him by the blood of the LAMB [JESUS], and by the WORD of their testimony” (Revelation 12:11). Again, the WORD of our testimony is JESUS, THE WORD, the power of GOD. This is how we fight and how we WIN, OVERCOME. We must not love our former lives that we had once lived.18
GOD, the WORD, CHRIST, promises a LIFE eternal, which is so wonderful that there are no words sufficient to tell of it.19 Again, “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD [THE FATHER, JESUS, THE WORD, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT] hath prepared for them that love HIM [and keep HIS commandments20]” (1 Corinthians 2:9). But first we must deal with the beast and our sinful past! We must repent of our sinful past by repenting of our sins and living Godly lives. Repent now by saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Diligently study the King James Version Bible, and do what it says until the day you die13
CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT. For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
