Outside New Jerusalem (U66)

       'Your Eternal Inheritance'

Scene in heaven after Rapture
Rev 7:9, 14 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands... And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
    Multitudes of resurrected elect will appear before the throne of God in heaven. However, only those who will be without the mark of the  beast and martyred during the Great Tribulation will come back to rule with Jesus during His Millennium Rule.
Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been *beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands.* And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

Coming of the Bride of the Lamb
Rev 21:1-2 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    Before the creation of the New heaven and New earth, all those elect left in heaven will be those taken up at Rapture less those resurrected martyrs who will be ruling with our Lord Jesus during His Millennium Rule. These resurrected elect will go into New Jerusalem in the New heaven to be with God the Father.  
    At the marriage of the Lamb, the bride of the Lamb in New Jerusalem along with our Father God and the rest of the resurrected elect (as friends and servants of the bride) will descend down to the New Earth.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God."

Nations outside New Jerusalem
Rev 21:23-27 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And *the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light*, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.
    All those saved will be outside New Jerusalem and only their kings can enter the New Jerusalem to bring glory and honour to worship our Lord. They will bring out the leaves of the tree of life for the healing of the imperfect incorruptible bodies of all those outside (saved). Since they have not faithfully kept His word, their transformations were not perfect for His word is life and spirit.
    While they were still alive they could not trust Jesus enough to keep His commandments. Their love of the world and their lies for personal gain destroyed their chances of becoming holy.
    They are fortunate that they are humble enough to repent of their sins, otherwise their names will be wiped out from the book of life.
Rev 22:1-2  And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
