“But * Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all” (Galatians 4:26). The cross reference * takes us to Isaiah 2:2 and informs us when to expect the New Jerusalem, “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.” In the last days this new Christianity (The New Jerusalem) will draw all people, nations, to God. Verse 3 goes on to tell us a law will go forth from this New Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3 “…for out of Zion shall go forth the law and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” In other words, the word of the Lord will not be spoken until the New Jerusalem. That means before the last days when the New Jerusalem comes into existence the old Jerusalem, today’s Christianity, is not telling us the truth of God. Today, Christianity has also eliminated the law. In the last days we will hear a law and that law will be the law of the New Covenant. So, the New Covenant will not go into effect until the last days.
The law first spoken from the New Jerusalem will be the law of the New Covenant. The New Covenant is as follows, Hebrews 8:10-12 “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” Also, in Jeremiah 31:33 “…I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Here law is in the singular, referring to the first law in Eden. When a person obeys the law given in Eden, they will be serving God and departing from evil. God made vaginal intercourse and Satan made oral and anal sex. When returning to God one must end Satan’s sex.
During the time before the law goes out and before the New Jerusalem comes with strong truth, mankind has been in a moral free fall. “For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all” (Romans 11:32). No deliverance has been offered to the sinner, or I should say, no deliverance has been offered to those who broke the law in Eden. No deliverance for those in Sodom and Gomorrah. No deliverance for all those who fell for oral and anal sex. Satan made oral and anal sex and no deliverances from this sin will be offered until the New Jerusalem. Many have been able to end lesser sins, such as adultery as David did. So, the law that will go out from the New Jerusalem will be totally focused on those in Sodom and Gomorrah as stated in Isaiah 1:10 “Hear the words of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom: give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.” As I have stated several times, in the last days there will only be a remnant who are not like Sodom and Gomorrah. The remnant is a small portion of the original left at the end. Isaiah 1:9, “Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.” However, the words of God from the New Jerusalem will convince those in Sodom and Gomorrah to return to the ways of God resulting in heaven on earth. All violence will end. All unhappiness will eventually end. The law, when used in the singular, will be another set of Commandments (ten commandments) that can be broken all at once with one act of Satan’s sex. The blog titled “The Second Commandment” is an example of how original sin breaks that commandment.
God said he is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. He began time in a paradise–the garden of Eden, and he will end time with a paradise— heaven on earth. That truth is stated in Revelations 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that *old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan which deceiveth the whole world ….” The cross reference to the Satan which deceiveth the whole world sends one to Genesis 3:1 concerning Adam and Eve’s sin in the Garden of Eden. When the sin that began in Eden comes to an end in the last days, we will have heaven on earth once again.
“All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee…: (Psalm 66:4). “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent” (Revelation: 3:19). Heaven will come to earth when the sin that began in Eden comes to an end. Love for thy neighbor is to end sin.
