Study Notes The 2 Witnesses Part 3
The final judgements upon mankind. An amazing work by our dear sister Marilyn Simmons opening up the prophetic metaphors of scripture.
Excellent article by a friend of the ministry Barbara Aho
Archive Third Day study that is more in focus today than when it was first published.
This is an update. For those who are wondering what happened to the YouTube Studies I wanted to check in and explain. These ongoing Sound Doctrine studies exploring the mystery of the 2 witness royal priesthood are at a dificult point as those of you who have been following know, they have ended up right at the book of Ezekiel and his instruction to “set his face” against the elders of Israel. The bitter/Sweet information of the the “Little Book” revealed to both John in Revelation and Ezekiel is so profound and so cryptic it has caused this ministry to pause and step back again.
The time since the last Study, “Understanding the 2 Witnesses Part 2” has been a time of new discovery and more questions. This interim post is for the purpose of letting you the listener know we’re still here, still seeking understanding into these profound prophecies. These things can’t be forced, God is faithful, pray for me as I continue to work on Part 3 showing the mystery of Ezekiels wheel as it contects to the most important prophecies.
Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Hag 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
Stay Tuned…and Please Pray
The season of the “water bearer”. Genesis 49 is a word picture describing the signs and are correlated with the names of the 12 tribes:
Reuben, ‘boiling over with water,’ is Aquarius (the Water Bearer)
Simeon and Levi, ‘the brethren,’ are Gemini (the Twins)
Judah,’the lion’s whelp,’ is Leo (the Lion)
Zebulon, ‘who shall dwell at the beach of the sea,’ is Pisces (the Fish)
Issachar, ‘a gelded donkey lying down in the cattle pens (REB)’ is Taurus (the Bull)
Dan, ‘a serpent in the way,’ is Scorpio (the Scorpion)
Gad, ‘a troop shall press upon him; but he shall press upon their heel,’ is Aries (the Ram). [Aries, being the first sign of the zodiac, ‘presses upon their heel’ in the circular zodiac.]
Asher, ‘the weigher of bread,’ is Libra (the Scales)
Nephtali, ‘a hind let loose,’ is Capricorn (the Goat)
Joseph, ‘whose bow abides in strength,’ is Sagittarius (the Archer)
Benjamin, ‘ravening as a wolf, devouring his prey by morning, dividing the spoil at night,’ is Cancer (the Crab)
The 12 sons have been named but one sign remains- Virgo (the Virgin). This sign is ‘veiled,’ and is correlated with Dinah, Jacob’s daughter (Gen 30:21).
Eze 10:2 And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.
Eze 10:3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.
Eze 10:4 Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’S glory.
Eze 41:19 So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the other side: it was made through all the house round about.
If you will recall from previous posts, the vials of wrath poured out in Revelation 16 represent the preaching of the gospel judgments against hypocrisy and sin.
“And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” ~ Revelation 16:8-9
This judgement is a reversal of what happened in the warning of the fourth trumpet. In the fourth trumpet, all celestial bodies symbolically representing things ordained of God to give light to people, were shown to have been impacted negatively.
“And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the…

THE NEW JERUSALEM
THE BRIDE CITY- The LAMBS WIFE.
And there came unto me one of the seven angels (messengers) which had the seven vials of the last seven plaques and talked with me saying, Come hither I will show thee••the BRIDE••the LAMB ‘S WIFE••
And he carried me away into••a great and high mountain•• and showed me that•• great city, the holy Jerusalem•• descending out of God from heaven.
Having the glory of God and her light was liken 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 on the •••Wall of the City••• had •••twelve foundations•••and in them the name of the •••twelve apostles of the Lamb••
And he that talked with me had a ••golden reed to ••measure the City thereof••and the ••wall thereof••
And the city lieth foursquare and the length as large as the breath and the height of it equal.
And he••measured the Wall••there of ••one hundred and forty••four cubits according to the measure of a man that is of the angel.
And the building of the ••wall of it was jasper•• and the ••city was pure gold•• ••like unto clear glass••
And the foundations of the WALL of the City were garnished with all manner of precious stones. ••First foundation was jasper••the ••second sapphire••third chalcedony•• fourth an emerald••
The ••Fifth sardonyx••the eight beryl••the ninth topaz••the tenth chrysoprasus••the eleventh Jacinta••the twelveth amethyst••
The••twelve gates••were twelve pearls•• every several gate was••one pearl••and the street to the city••was ••pure gold••as it were••transparent glass••
And I saw••no temple therein•• for the ••Lord God Almighty and the Lamb•• are the••temple of it••
As we know the NEW JERUSALEM is not a material structure as such but is those that God has redeemed from out of the earth. The Election of God that’s that have been called out. Been through the furnace of affliction and have risen to the higher call. The Church being the dwelling place of God.
Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners but fellow citizens with the saints and if the household of God.
And are built upon the FOUNDATION of the APOSTLES and PROPHETS Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone.
In whom all the BUILDING FITLY FRAMED TOGETHER GROW UNTO A HOLY TEMPLE UNTO THE LORD.
In whom you are BUILT TOGETHER for a habitation of God through the Spirit.
We have the glory of God it says we are like light precious stones being of jasper with speaks of his brightness and glory.
We are the BRIDE CITY as in John’s vision he was taken to a great and high mountain is symbolic of a KINGDOM. The Kingdom of God Being the New Jerusalem the final election of saints.
HOLY CITY his BRIDE we have made ourselves ready GOD’S ELECTION his first fruit.
We are being refined being cleaned and sanctified through the purging of his furnace of affliction.
We are that WALL representing security and protection the Wall of Salvation, built into the wall
the Wall of separation, those that have separated themselves from sin. We allowing him to build us up into a spiritual house as God’s building.
We are his EVERLASTING PRIESTLY KINGDOM of GLORIFIED SAINTS that have his glory as we are full of his divine measure.
We are the Bride that has been adorned, made ourselves ready, prepared who are and have putting their lives in order.
JESUS the Christ and his Church as the one new man, that new creation.
We are those Walls as we have had to come up hither.
The GOLDEN REED Allowing the Lord to measure us up against his standards meeting his higher standards. Which can also call a rod to measure the temple. We have had to been measured to come up to his standards of obedience through his times of correction and times were we have walked through the the••fire of Judgement•• and the••spirit of burning We have by his spirit allowed the holy Spirit figuratively to forge into us the nature of God. To be that great high wall. Coming into a higher place in him.
Speaking of walls Isaiah spoke of the Walls of Salvation.
We are those Walls of security and protection We are the Walls of separation that divides the Holy from the profane.
It says the building of the wall was jasper, pure gold, like unto clear glass We shall shine forth with his glory, we have glorified bodies and as the clear glass, we use to see through a glass darkly but in time we will see things clear and plain. The sea of glass speaks of peace and tranquility before God’s throne.
1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass darkly but then face to face; now I know in part but then shall I know even as also as I am know.
JUST ONE STREET OF GOLD IN THE CITY Gods Elect figuratively are that gold street, his redeemed of Christ his perfected Saints with glorified bodies. All those that are obedient have partaken of his divine nature.
THE CITY THE TWELVE GATES AND THE TWELVE MESSENGERS being the TRIBES of ISRAEL each out of every kindred tribe and nation. Speaking of the ISRAEL of GOD, the 144,000 redeemed from out of the earth. TWELVE also speaking of divine government and the fullness of God in the Holy City of God.
That walk in his authority and kingship in the NEW JERUSALEM to rule and reign with Christ. The GATE being symbolic of entrance to power and authority.
But he knows the way I take, when he has tried me I shall come out as gold.
And I will bring a third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tried they shall call on my name and I will hear them and I will say it is my people and thy shall say the Lord is my God.
Behave I have refined you but not as silver I have tried you in the furnace of affliction.
ONE INDIVIDUAL PEARL from the twelve gates and twelve pearls. A pearl is formed in the wound side of the oyster, through the agitation of the sand washing through it. But after the process it hardens and the pearl is fully formed.
Looking at the pearl its a like a gem that is produced through suffering. The Church his elect are formed through suffering. But what comes forth individual or collectively as the church is that pearl figuratively. Divine gems of revelation. Precious truths and gems of scripture are also formed this way.
Jesus talked about the merchant seeking for priceless pearls. He found one and paid the price for it. Wisdom more precious than gold. If we want to be the BRIDE CITY it comes at a cost. Sometimes friends sometimes family as you are going against the grain so to speak with agitation bringing forth pearls of wisdom.
It says no sun or moon no temple for the Almighty and the Lamb are the temple and the the Lord is the light with the resurrected glorious saints Light in the darkness Church shines in the dark. God amongst his people forever.
My TABERNACLE shall also be with them yea I will be their God and they will be my people and the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel when #my #sanctuary #shall #be #in #the #midst #of #them
#for #ever #more.
