FUTURE -  

 

(sign)  Be ready for when The "Time Is Ripe" again, 
the second "Pleroma", when Jesus, The Messiah, 
comes AGAIN. None of us were here when He came 
the first time.  
But we may be here when He comes again. 
Be prepared to meet Him.

He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and 
silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings
in righteousness.”  (Malachi  3:3)

NEAR THE EXIT from the whole display have a loudspeaker 
replaying the "Hallelujah!" chorus from
“The Messiah
”  oratorio, by George Frederick HANDEL.
The loudspeaker(s) can be highly directional to limit the
listening area and keep it from disrupting adjacent parts
of the display. An automatic replay system can be used or
else a motion detector and activation system could be useful
so the music would not be continuously playing. The recordings
are about three and a half minutes long.

(sign)  The "Hallelujah!" chorus is in “The Messiah”  Oratorio, by George Frederick Handel written in 1741.  The Hebrew word “Hallelujah” means “Praise God.” The words of the song are, “Hallelujah: for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.   The kingdom of this world is become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.   King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.   Hallelujah!”   (Revelation 19:6 & 16 also Revelation 11:15)

EXTRA SUGGESTION NOTE] It is highly recommended that IF a Christmas tree, Santa Claus or other modern type Christmas decorations are used, have them at the last end of the Postlude, NOT near the entrance or anywhere else in the whole Walk-Thru  display.  If possible, do NOT have any modern Christmas things in or near the Display that could at all detract from the original meaning, ambiance and significance of His Birth and Ministry.

 The New Heaven and the New Earth

In small print or near a larger sign this explanation might be given, “Adapted from the Revelation (Apocalypse) recorded by St. John, the Disciple and Companion of Jesus, in Chapters 21 & 22. Those are the last two Chapters of the Bible and indicate wonderful conditions, similar to the Garden of Eden for those people who enter the New Heaven or the New Earth.

 

St. John wrote,  

I saw “a New Heaven and a New Earth,”  for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 

2 I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven, from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,

“Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and He will dwell with them.

 

THEY WILL BE HIS PEOPLE, AND GOD HIMSELF WILL BE WITH THEM AND BE THEIR GOD.

4 ‘HE WILL WIPE EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES.

There will be:

NO MORE DEATH’

NO MORE MOURNING

NO MORE CRYING

NO MORE PAIN

for the old order of things has passed away.”

He who was seated on the throne said, “I AM MAKING EVERYTHING NEW!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

He said to me:

“It is done.

I AM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END.

TO THE THIRSTY, I WILL GIVE WATER WITHOUT COST FROM THE SPRING OF THE WATER OF LIFE.

Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 

But the [unrepentant unforgiven] cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, drug abusers, the idolaters and all liars — they will be sent to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

 

One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.”  And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God. 

It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.12 It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. 

The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.

 22 I did NOT see a Temple in the City, because THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY AND THE LAMB ARE ITS TEMPLE.

23 The City does NOT NEED SUN OR MOON BECAUSE THE GLORY OF GOD GIVES IT LIGHT AND AND THE LAMB IS ITS LAMP [that distributes the Glory Light].

The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.  On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there.  The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. 

Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

 

 Then the angel showed me The River of The Water Of Life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the Throne of God and of the Lamb  down the middle of the Great Street of the city. On each side of the River stood the Tree Of Life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the Tree are for the healing of the ethnic groups. 

NO LONGER WILL THERE BE ANY CURSE [such as in the Garden of Eden after Adam and Eve sinned].

The THRONE OF GOD AND OF THE LAMB WILL BE IN THE CITY and HIS SERVANTS will serve Him. 4 They will see His face, and His Name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will NOT need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for THE LORD GOD WILL GIVE THEM LIGHT. AND THEY WILL REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER.

 

The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true.

 

THE LORD, THE GOD WHO INSPIRES TO PROPHETS, SENT THIS ANGEL TO SHOW HIS SERVANTS THE THINGS THAT MUST SOON TAKE PLACE.”

“Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.”

 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the Tree Of Life and may go through the gates into the City. 

OUTSIDE [OF THE HOLY CITY] ARE THE DOGS, THOSE WHO ABUSE DRUGS, THE SEXUALLY IMMORAL, THE MURDERERS, THE IDOLATERS AND EVERYONE WHO LOVES AND PRACTICES FALSEHOOD.

 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.

I AM [both] THE ROOT [ORIGIN] AND THE SON  [OFFSPRING]  OF DAVID, AND THE BRIGHT MORNING STAR.”

The [Holy] Spirit and the Bride [the Church] say, “COME!” And let the one who hears say, “COME!”

LET THE ONE WHO IS THIRSTY [FOR THE WATER OF LIFE]  COME AND LET THE ONE WHO WISHES TAKE THE FREE GIFT OF THE WATER OF LIFE.

“Yes, I am coming soon.”

   Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

 

 




 

  [NOTE]  FREE BIBLES AND DVDs OF THE “JESUS”  FILM in various languages can be given to your guests.  We should have good respectable copies for gifts.  The cost of this is part of the general outreach of a vital congregation.  People of other religions often give out copies of their religious texts in efforts to gain new adherents to their religions. Many mosques gave out beautifully printed and bound copies of their Qur’an that normally sold in their stores for $15 to $30.

The "JESUS FILM" has been translated into more than 1,000 languages and viewed by about 2 Billion viewers. It is based on the record in the Gospel of Luke. DVDs are available which have several different spoken languages and some different sub-titles. DVDs in bulk (50s) and more information are available at www.AllNationsDVDs.com    phone 800-667-0558. 

In the USA, perhaps the most useful general edition is the International Scholars Edition with 15 languages: Arabic, Cantonese, English, Farsi, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, Urdu and Vietnamese.
