THE NEW JERUSALEM, Cardinal Scheme of Order after the Revelation / The sens of 12 x 12 = 144


 
I THE LORD am now going to take you at MY HOLY HAND to lead you through the next verses of the Revelation which by My Grace I once granted to My John. You will see in the next verse that the number "12" plays on outstanding part, as well as its multiplication by its own value: 12 x 12 = 144.
"And had a wall great and high, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, with names written thereon, which are 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 on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
And he who talked with me had a golden rod to measure the city, and the gates and walls thereof. And the city lies foursquare, and the length is as large as the width; and he measured the city with the rod, twelve thousand furlongs the length and the width and the height of it are equal.
And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred and forty-four cubits, by a man's measure, that is, of the angel.
The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, clear as glass.
And the foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every sort of jewel: the first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topas, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl; and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass."
(Revelation to John 21/12-21)
 
114
As you can see the number "12" is iterative in the NEW JERUSALEM and the measure of its walls is equal to a man's or an angel's, namely a hundred and forty-four cubits; "12" was also the number of the tribes of Israel and of My apostles, whose names are recorded on the walls, and "12" was the number of gates and angels upon them.
 
115
But you may ask, where is there any reference in this NEW JERUSALEM to "7", the number of MY HOLY UR-QUALITIES?
 
116
Indeed, the holy "7" is also visible and perceptible in the NEW JERUSALEM. I am going to decipher it for you.
 
117
So let us set, as it were, ME, GOD THE LORD, as the number of all numbers, as the forever holy cardinal and ordinal number "one" in the center, and let us dispose evenly on the symbolic sign of MY HOLY SPIRIT, the circle, My six remaining Ur-qualities. Thus we are beholding a circumference divided evenly in the regular order of MY ETERNAL LOVE, the number "1" by the six remaining Ur-qualities of Mine. This can be visualized by dividing a circle by its radius into six even peripherical parts.
 
118
Let us then connect around ME, the number "One", the other six ordinal quality points in such a way, that first the points corresponding to even numbers, then those corresponding to odd numbers, are linked together; we thus obtain two equilateral triangles disposed around ME, the central point, forming the symbol of that star, which My "chosen people" took once as the symbol of MY HOLINESS - THEIR GOD JEHOVAH. If we now draw a second circle around the number "One", My central point, with a radius such as will rally the intersecting points of both equilateral triangles, we obtain an inner circle with the six ordinal points of My six Ur-qualities as governed by the number "One".
 
119
We have thus disclosed one of the foremost leading key positions of MY HOLY SPIRIT; such as ought to prevail in every spirit, namely that the inner self should in perfect order radiate through the outside, while the outer self should reflect the inner self, inasmuch as a spirit does live and act in perfect harmony. This touches upon the mystery of the number "12", which must be the perfect expression of the overall order of any spirit and its work, if it aims at living forever within MY HOLY ORDER.
 
120  
 

THE NEW JERUSALEM - Fundamental scheme of Order

 
121
This fundamental scheme of order from MY HOLY SPIRIT reveals in addition to what has already been disclosed heretofore that the number "12" as a biblical mystery is not to be reduced to the twelve sons of Jacob, but rather that the 12 tribes of Israel had to be rooted in MY ORDER, if they were to receive My blessing and guidance.
 
122
Similarly, the twelve gates of the NEW JERUSALEM must be understood to rest upon MY ORDER, and the fact that they are disposed in triads by the four winds of Heaven means that MY HOLY SPIRIT of the HOLY TRINITY must pervade and sustain the NEW JERUSALEM in an absolutely equal measure and the twelve angels as expression of the inner and outer order watch upon the twelve gates. The walls of the NEW JERUSALEM, erected in this absolute order on "twelve foundations" reflect the solidity of TRUE LOVE IN MY HOLY SPIRIT, and the fact that they show the names of My twelve apostles means that the Holy LAW OF MY ORDER had been fulfilled by them just as I as the MESSIAH emphasized that I had not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.
 
123
The fact that the NEW JERUSALEM is equal in length, width and height, means that regarding LOVE, WISDOM and VOLITION, it will never live otherwise but in the order of MY HOLY SPIRIT and WILL, and that the walls translate, with the equal measure of multiplication of 12 x 12 = 144, their harmony with the even proportions of a human or angel as the perfect expression of MY LIKENESS.
 
124
The wall of the NEW JERUSALM as visualized by My John, could but be built of the most precious stone, jasper, because jasper is crystallized LOVE in the material world, just as the pure gold of the city expresses the perfect purity of LOVE which is so immaculate that when seen with physical eyes it looks like pure glass, whereby is being revealed that PURE LOVE in the NEW JERUSALEM will be crystalline like the invisible HOLY SPIRIT.
 
125
This finds another expression in the description of the "streets of the city" - whereby is meant all walks of life, including the humblest, of MY CHILDREN OF LOVE - which are made of pure gold, translucent like glass.
 
126
Finally all "foundations" of the city were by the perfect order adorned with twelve different precious stones, i.e. that TRUE LOVE in its fairest and purest diversity will indeed clothe the NEW JERUSALEM.
 
127
This perfect order of the NEW JERUSALEM in the LOVE OF MY HOLY SPIRIT will reflect a degree of faith where a visible temple of GOD is no longer needed; for wherever MY HOLY ORDER out of MY LOVE prevails in all things, there I THE LORD am not only the central point, the Alpha and Omega of all being, but also THE TEMPLE OF ALL TEMPLES; and everybody is one with MY TEMPLE, since he is in MY TEMPLE a temple of his self.
 
128
The perfect spiritual state has become a plain reality in the NEW JERUSALEM; not only because I, GOD THE LORD and ETERNAL CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, dwell within and amidst MY CHILDREN OF LOVE, but also because the HOLY WORD will then be fulfilled with GOD living among His children as the ONE SHEPHERD with HIS FLOCK; beyond its symbolic significance, this concretely means that all mankind will have become one in LOVE with its single true GOD AND CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.
 
129
This My John describes as follows:
"And I saw no temple therein; for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it."
(Revelation to John 21/22)
 
130
Yet the greatness and immense significance that cannot be grasped at all by mankind today, is also revealed by John:
"And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine upon it; for the Glory of God is its light, and the Lamb is the light thereof."
(Revelation to John 21/23)
 
131
Thereby John had anticipated something that nobody was able to grasp in his time and which also to this day can only be conceived by those who have become true Children of My Love within their heart. Indeed, who among you, O men, can grasp that a city needs no sunlight and that only the GLORY OF GOD illuminates everything?
 
132
Yet this is A HOLY TRUTH REVEALED BY ME, THE LORD AND CREATOR!
 
133
Verily, say I THE LORD to all of you who want to follow ME unflinchingly, although many a reader may at this time reflect upon himself: "Until now I have endeavoured to believe everything, but now this exceeds my capacity of faith" and will close this NEW BIBLE, even if he is to open it later-on.
 
134
Verily, this is the plain truth. Indeed, whoever has seized ME in the perfection of MY LOVE has also the LIGHT OF ALL LIGHT and will shine just as I THE LORD shall.
 
135
A natural sun, like that in your sky, is needful only where love is still so cold and weak that it is hardly perceptible, let alone to shine by itself. And were I to let you live in the scantiness of your love, I say that you would not and even could not live at all, for you would die away overnight by your darkness!
 
136
But wherever MY LOVE develops into a fervid LOVE in a human child, TRUE LOVE begins to shine and radiate, and to light up everything around it. You have certainly read that My greatest prophet Moses had to lay a triple covering around his head when he descended from the mountain Sinai to talk with his people Israel; for nobody else from among the still blind children of Israel could have endured this light out of MY HOLY LIGHT.
 
137
I have already told you in this NEW BIBLE, how unable you are to imagine the multiplying power of LOVE if all My earthly children were filled with TRUE LOVE! And you were already told by My John that the NEW JERUSALEM needs no sunlight any longer because MY GLORY is to illuminate everything.
 
138
Verily, the moment all My earthly children will have become citizens of the NEW JERUSALEM through perfect LOVE, most fiery and merciful JESUS-MARIA-LOVE, uniting thereby with ME THE LORD in all perfection, the GLORY OF MY LIGHT will illuminate everything, so that no sun will be needed. This is a truth, a holy unquestionable truth!
 
139
It is similarly a HOLY TRUTH that all light in My infinite Creation, the shining of all suns and stars, and even of greatest central suns, is a reflection of MY ETERNAL LIGHT OF LOVE.
 
140
May this HOLY TRUTH provide a light in your world of concepts to give you an inkling of how much MY ETERNAL LOVE for you and every creature is beyond words and concepts.
 
141
On the other hand, it is easy to understand that the NEW JERUSALEM will not be illuminated with MY LIGHT as you flick a switch, for the NEW JERUSALEM will have to labour to rise gradually from an initial stage of true perfect love to the highest stage of JESUS-MARIA-LOVE; and yet it will rise faster than you can imagine, particularly since the NEW JERUSALEM WILL HAVE ITS PROPER JESUS-MARIA-LIGHTING through the LOVE OF MY HOLIEST OF HOLIES; for the "Lamb" - i.e. the deepest humility and the greatest readiness to sacrifice motivated by Mercy and Absolute Obedience as LOVE ABOVE ALL LOVE - has dissolved in the GLORY OF GOD which as LIGHT ABOVE ALL LIGHT will be shining forever in the NEW JERUSALEM.
 
142
And I also said that MY HEAVEN has been lowered onto Earth to build the NEW JERUSALEM, and wherever is MY HEAVEN the Heaven will shine by the GLORY OF GOD, or else it were none!
 
143
So keep this picture of the NEW JERUSALEM constantly in mind, knowing that this city will be the NEW EARTH and that it is high time to follow MY HOLY WILL!
 
144
You will now ever more easily realize that MY HOLY WORD, whether in the old or the NEW BIBLE, or through MY HOLY VOICE in a human heart, must be grasped in the depth of the spirit, of MY HOLY SPIRIT, otherwise you will never get at the HOLY TRUTH but will get entangled in self-concocted illusions instead.
 
145
You are therefore well advised to enter wholly into MY JESUS-MARIA-LOVE which is radiating out of each page of this NEW BIBLE, and according to the seriousness of your endeavour you will be surrounded and pervaded by MY HOLY SPIRIT WHO will introduce you gradually into MY KINGDOM which is not of this world.
 
146
By following this advice you might also realize that I THE LORD have already been for a long time amongst you as the TEMPLE OF THE NEW JERUSALEM, as My John saw it in his seventh vision. For wherever are the headquarters of MY LIGHT CIRCLE OF HEAVEN AND EARTH - THE LIGHT CIRCLE OF CHRIST - I THE LORD am also present as the TEMPLE OF ALL TEMPLES, - THE TEMPLE OF THE NEW JERUSALEM. And it rests only with you, My children of men, to gather round this HOLY TEMPLE OF YOUR GOD AND LORD, to listen to and fulfill MY HOLY WILL, thus and thereby building the NEW JERUSALEM!
 
147
When coming to this HOLY TEMPLE of Mine, do not expect to see already from afar some magnificent building; nothing of the sort! But you might perceive My Light shining in MY HOLY VOICE, when speaking to you, if such is My Will!
 
148
It may even happen that you leave this place rather disappointed, without having either seen ME as the TEMPLE OF ALL TEMPLES or perceived ME within MY VOICE, but then it is you who are to be blamed: for not having come with deepest humility, or even for coming with malice at heart; for it is with the Headquarters of MY LIGHT CIRCLE just as with what My John had said:
"And nothing unclean shall enter it, nor anyone who practices abomination or falsehood; but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life."
(Revelation to John 21/27)
 
149
Indeed, MY HOLY SPIRIT blows in the Headquarters of MY LIGHT CIRCLE of HEAVEN AND EARTH and will exclude whatever does not pertain to the NEW JERUSALEM. Only those newcomers who repent of not having recognized ME heretofore, and confess that they have found ME within their heart through this NEW BIBLE, will find grace before ME and can enjoy the felicity of walking henceforth in MY LIGHT, as has been said:
"By its light shall walk the nations that are saved, and the kings of the Earth shall bring their glory and honour into it."
(Revelation to John 21/24)
