The mother deer came to get her fawn after the horses went on, but this baby was unafraid of the horses

The big news today is that the petrified wood, with pitch in the seams, from Noah's Ark has finally been found on Mt. Sulieman (meaning Solomon) at 13,126 ft. elevation in Iran. As JR Church says, "The Evidence is Overwhelming!"

He is so excited about it. So am I. I knew the Lord would have it found at just the right time to bring in his sheaves. The main article in the new Prophecy in the News is about it. JR Church has DVD's about it available for any donation. They found DNA of lots of animals now scattered around the world. Barnacles and sea anemones are imbedded in the petrified wood.

To read JR's article, "Has Noah's Ark Been Found at Last," about Gary Stearman's interview with Arch Bonnema, and see pictures of the petrified wood, go to: http://www.prophecyvideo.info/articles/June_2010_Mag.pdf
Now we know why the world's glaciers were melting. God was at work. That warm spell was to expose the wood of the Ark. An earthquake helped.

To hear how the Ark was found, listen to Arch Bonnema himself at this link: http://www.cometomyhouse.org/media.html

Listen to Arch Bonnema on the first video, and see what you think. The wood of Noah's Ark is petrified. "Animal waste dropped to the bottom hull of the ship, then became petrified rock. Hairs, feathers, etc., were embedded in it." DNA of animals has been found. The ship is high on the mountains, plural, just like the Bible says. Mount Ararat, so named by Marco Polo, in Turkey is one peak set in a plain. That does not fit "mountains". Everything they thought could be the Ark there turned out to be rocks.

What about the Ark of the Covenant? Do they know where it is? There is a video there about that too. That it is really located in Ethiopia sounds convincing.

I believe these things have been found at this precise time, because Jesus is coming soon for his Bride, probably on Sept. 8/9, 2010. My granddaughter was born on Sept. 8. At 6 PM Sept. 8, 2010, the Feast of Trumpets will begin and continue until 6 PM on Sept. 9. Ron Reese picked Sept 9, 2010.

Further thoughts

Mt 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Ruth 2:23 (KJV) "So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest".

(DRB) "So she kept close to the maids of Booz: and continued to glean with them, TILL ALL THE BARLEY AND THE WHEAT WERE LAID UP IN THE BARNS."

Just maybe Jesus' birthday on the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 8/9, 2010 will be the day of the First-Trumpet Rapture. The Last-Trump Rapture will be on the Feast of Trumpets on the Day of God's Wrath. This way the whole Body of Christ would have the same birthday and birthstone, the sapphire, September's birthstone.

1Sa 6:13,14 says, "And they of Bethshemesh were reaping their WHEAT HARVEST in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it. And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there".

In John 4:35, Jesus said, "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest."

The wheat harvest starts at Pentecost and continues 4 months, Sivan, Tamuz, Av and Elul. The Feast of Trumpets starts on the next day, Tishri 1.

UN Rebuilding Babylon, Biblical Prophecy Of End Times?


the Obama Administration is contributing $700,000 towards “The Future of Babylon Project,” through the State Department’s budget.

“Officials hope Babylon can be revived and made ready for a rich future of tourism, with help from experts at the World Monuments Fund (WMF) and the U.S. embassy,” reports the Reuters news agency. “‘The Future of Babylon’ project launched last month seeks to ‘map the current conditions of Babylon and develop a master plan for its conservation, study and tourism,’ the WMF says. ‘We don’t know how long it will take to reopen to tourists,’ said Mariam Omran Musa, head of a government inspection team based at the site. ‘It depends on funds. I hope that Babylon can be reborn in a better image.’”

"In my non-fiction book, Epicenter 2.0, I wrote about the Bible prophecies in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Revelation that indicate the ancient city of Babylon in Iraq will, in fact, be rebuilt in the “last days” of history and become the wealthiest and most powerful city on the face of the planet. I also cited my interview with Iraqi Finance Minister Ali Abdul Ameer Allawi who told me in 2006 at the peak of the insurgency, “Cultural, religious, archaeological, and biblical tourism is a big opportunity for Iraq. I think rebuilding Babylon is a wonderful idea, as long as it is not done at the expense of the antiquities themselves.” For many, I know the rebuilding of Babylon seemed like a far-fetched idea in the Bible. For many more, it seemed like a far-fetched idea in 2006, as well. But skeptics and cynics take note: now that the insurgency is dying down, the Shia-led government of Iraq is actually moving forward with this historic and prophetic project. They say Babylon will be “reborn.” And they’re right. It will be.

May 6, 2010 ... Yes, I think the rebuilding of Babylon has major Biblical significance ... there are plans to relocate the headquarters of the UN from New York to Babylon. ... Babylon is projected to be the center of trade and finance.
Have you heard about the United Nations' plan to rebuild Babylon? http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090115110033AAplh6m

In November 2008 the United Nations released a plan for the complete restoration and rebuilding of Babylon.
The Rebuilding of Babylon

When the 42 months are up the Antichrist will stop all customary religious worship, enter the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and claim to be above anything called God. He will demand to be worshiped by all. He will then move his headquarters to Babylon and he war against all those that will not bow their knee to him.

He will find Babylon Iraq to be an ideal spot because Allah has the same characteristics of Satan. He will be readily accepted by Muslims when he becomes known although he will not identify with Allah of Islam. He will claim to be above anything called God. The worldwide power base of Islam and the Roman Catholic Church will be the foundations he will use to bring in a worldwide forced worship of himself as God. From that power base he will bring in a new political and economic system. He will seek to kill all who confess Jesus/Jehovah as Lord. The method of killing gives us a clue about those that make up his power base. He will behead his enemies as does radical Islam with their enemies. (Rev 20:4)

My reply to incoming email, "New Jerusalem," by Pastor Riley

Bible study attached. Use as the Lord leads.
Pastor F. M. Riley

Thanks. I like what you wrote about New Jerusalem. I'll add a few thoughts that came to me as I read it, and a question at the end.

> > Folks, the architectural design of New Jerusalem, the eternal “home” of every true believer, is A GREAT GOLDEN PYRAMID with the Lord Jesus Christ Himself being the “head [stone] of the corner,” Matthew 21:42. Read Revelation 21:11 and 21:23

The pyramid has equal length, width and height, but so does a cube and a globe. Since New Jerusalem is to orbit like the Moon, I think it will be a globe that will rotate and orbit like the Moon. Planets and the Moon are globes because each rock tries to get as close to the magnetic core as possible, so they stick on all sides.

Rev 21:16 says, "And the city lieth FOURSQUARE (tetragonos, foursquare, i.e., having four square sides) suggesting a cube, and therefore a globe, whose length, width and height are equal, that would fit inside a cube-shaped box, or room, but more about that later), and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal."

> > The inspired Word explicitly states, “The Lord is in His holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try the children of men,” Psalm 11:4. This Scripture explicitly states that He is “in His holy temple,” and that His “throne is “in heaven.” So where are His Temple and His throne? > > "Psalm 103:19 explicitly states, “The Lord hath prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom ruleth over all.”

I think "THE SECRET OF HIS TABERNACLE" shows us that His throne is upon a rock in our third heaven, which Paul visited. Our first heaven is Mars. The second heaven is Jupiter. The third heaven is Saturn. I think Paul visited Saturn. I'll explain why.

According to Josephus, a Pharisee priest, the lampstand in the Temple represented, west to east, (1) the Sun, (2) Mercury, (3) Venus, (4) Earth, (5) Mars, (6) Jupiter, and (7) Saturn. In Ant. III. VI. 7, he wrote, "a shaft elevated itself on high from a single base, and spread itself into as many branches as there are planets, including the Sun among them." In Wars. 5. 5. 5 (on page 555 in Whiston's "Complete Works of Josephus"), Josephus said, "Now the seven lamps signified the seven planets, for so many there were springing out of the candlestick."

The western light was to be kept burning all the time, because it represented the Sun. Other lamps (planets looking like flaming lamps in the night sky) were to the east of the Sun, because they rise in the east. To the east of Earth's lamp were the lamps representing Earth's three heavens, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, the third heaven Paul visited.

In 2Co 12:2, Paul said, "I knew a man (Paul himself, he didn't want to boast) in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the THIRD HEAVEN." That's Saturn, the planet that has the inexplicable hexagon within a circle at the north pole.

Psa 27:5 says, "For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the SECRET OF HIS TABERNACLE shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a ROCK."

What do you think THE SECRET OF HIS TABERNACLE is? I think the BRASEN SEA in front of the Tabernacle represented Earth, which is the watery planet, 70% ocean, and the Tabernacle itself represented our three heavens.

It is well understood that the cube called the Holy of Holies represented Heaven. When the curtain was torn at the time of the Crucifixion, the way into Heaven was open. Heaven is a globe-shaped planet that would have the same length, width and height, as the Holy Of Holies had the same length, width and height.

What is not well understood is that the Holy Place, two cubes long, represented two globes that would fit inside two cubes, Mars and Jupiter.

The Holy of Holies, a single cube ("FOURSQUARE"), whose length, width and height were all equal, represented God's Heaven, a globe in which length, width and height are equal, golden Saturn, our third heaven (1. Mars, 2. Jupiter, and 3. Saturn).

Saturn has on it both gold and amber. According to Ezekiel's visions, it is the place of Jesus' throne.

Eze 1:1 says, "as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the HEAVENS WERE OPENED, AND I SAW VISIONS OF GOD." It took me 7 years to figure this out, but Ezekiel's visions were literally of the HEAVENS, and when he saw God, it was a God/man, which is Jesus Christ.

Of course, Ezekiel told us that his vision was of the heavens to begin with, but that is easy to miss as we read on and try to figure out what in the world he saw. The translators didn't seem to understand his visions, so that makes it harder to figure out. The best key is in Eze 1:15. One of the concentric orbits (wheels within wheels) was Earth's. It says, "Now as I beheld the living creatures (lively things), behold one wheel (orbit) upon the EARTH by the living creatures (lively things), with his four faces" (i.e., in turn, Earth faces 4 directions in its circular orbit around the Sun).

The 4 lively things flying in concentric orbits, wheels within wheels, are the 4 terrestrial planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. Above their orbits are those of Jupiter and Saturn. On Saturn, the planet with a halo, is the throne of the GOD/man (Eze. 1:1,26) Jesus Christ.

However, I didn't get that out of this chapter to begin with. The thing that finally woke me up after 7 years of searching in books from BIOLA's Seminary Collection was when I decided to look up every word in Hebrew. Eze 1:4 says, "a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire." Nogahh means bright (-ness), light, (clear) shining. A fire enfolding itself that gives off shining light (sunshine) was the Sun. Once I got hold of that, I understood that Eze 1:15 was talking about the Earth. It orbits among 3 other planets. All four are called the terrestrial planets.

The final thing that put the whole chapter in place for me was when I looked up the word sapphire (which means heaven as Jesus' September birthstone) in Webster's Collegiate Dictionary. It means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit sani, Saturn, and priya, dear. Then I finally knew what Ezekiel's visions were all about. I whispered to myself, "Then its true" as goosepimples ran over my body.

Eze. 1:26-28 says, "And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out in space than the 4 terrestrial planets, including the Earth; one of the 4 concentric orbits was upon the Earth in Eze. 1:15) was the likeness (symbolic language) of a THRONE, as the appearance of a SAPPHIRE stone (sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani and priya, dear): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (the God/man Jesus Christ, see verse 1) above upon it. And I saw as the colour of amber (Saturn is golden with amber stripes), as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins (the equator) even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had BRIGHTNESS ROUND ABOUT (Saturn's ring system). As the appearance of the bow (rainbow) that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the BRIGHTNESS ROUND ABOUT. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD."

Eze 10:1,2 says, "Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament (espanse of space) that was above the head of the cherubims (the 4 terrestrial planets) there appeared over them (farther out in space) as it were a sapphire stone (Saturn), as the appearance of the likeness of a throne (the throne of Jesus). And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels (orbits), even under the cherub (Satan), and fill thine hand with coals of fire (from Satan's asteroid Wormwood) from between the cherubims (the terrestrial planets), and scatter them over the city."

Satan's asteroid called Wormwood will impact Earth (Rev. 8:8-11). Isa. 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (Babylon) and whom hast thou here (the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high (on the asteroid Wormwood), and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock? (an asteroid, part of his original planet Rahab that split apart and formed our Asteroid Belt). Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. He will surely violently turn and TOSS THEE LIKE A BALL into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."

> > "Psalm 8:1 says that the Lord “…hast set Thy glory above the heavens.” Our readers will find a similar statement in Psalm 57:5, 57:11, 108:4-5, 113:4, and 148:13. See also Ephesians 4:10. These passages make it clear that somewhere out in the vastness of space, the “heavens” that men see today do end and there “above the heavens” is located New Jerusalem. In it is the “temple” and “throne” of Almighty God from which He looks out over and rules the entire universe.

The word heavens is plural. To me, it means that the Lord has set His glory on Saturn above two heavens, Mars and Jupiter. Psa 18:10 says of the Lord, "he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind."

Thanks for listing the following interesting references.

Psa 57:5 abd 11 both say, "Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens (plural, Mars and Jupiter); let THY GLORY be above all the EARTH." Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are above the Earth; Saturn's ring system is like God's glory.

Psa 108:4,5 says, "For thy mercy is great above the heavens (i.e., above Mars and Jupiter): and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds (Saturn is covered with thick golden clouds with some amber bands). Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and THY GLORY above all the earth".

Psa 113:4 says, "The LORD is high above all nations, and HIS GLORY (the ring system of Saturn, Eze. 1:28) above the heavens" (above Mars and Jupiter).

Psa 148:13 says, "Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; HIS GLORY (represented by Saturn's halo) is above the EARTH and HEAVEN" (Saturn).

> > The inspired Word explicitly states, “The Lord is in His holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try the children of men,” Psalm 11:4. This Scripture explicitly states that He is “in His holy temple,” and that His “throne is “in heaven.” So where are His Temple and His throne?

On Saturn, the last naked-eye planet, the outermost planet known to the ancients.

> > Psalm 103:19 explicitly states, “The Lord hath prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom ruleth over all.”

> > Psalm 8:1 says that the Lord “…hast set Thy glory above the heavens.” Our readers will find a similar statement in Psalm 57:5, 57:11, 108:4-5, 113:4, and 148:13. See also Ephesians 4:10. These passages make it clear that somewhere out in the vastness of space, the “heavens” that men see today do end and there “above the heavens” is located New Jerusalem. In it is the “temple” and “throne” of Almighty God from which He looks out over and rules the entire universe.

Jesus, both God (Eze. 1:1) and man (Eze. 1:26), sits on the throne of Almighty God. He is the "LORD of hosts" of Isa. 44:6. It says, "Thus saith the LORD (YHWH) the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD (YHWH) of hosts; I am the first (YHWH King of Israel), and I am the last (YHWH of hosts, the Redeemer, Christ); and beside me there is no God."

> > But because of this angelic rebellion, Almighty God determined to remove the administration of the earth and all of His creation out of the hands of angels and place it under the authority and administration of God’s own “sons.” Read Hebrews 2:5-10, Psalm 8:1-9, Romans 8:9-23, and Philippians 3:20-21

Heb 2:5-10 says, "For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings."

Psa 8:4-6 says, "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet".

Rom 8:9-11 says, "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, HE THAT RAISED UP CHRIST FROM THE DEAD SHALL ALSO QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES BY HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLETH IN YOU."

Php 3:20,21 says, "For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself."

> > It is glaringly obvious from a simple study of the context that New Jerusalem comes “down from God out of heaven” AFTER the 1,000 years Millennial Kingdom, AFTER Satan has been cast into the lake of fire, and AFTER the great white throne judgment is over. This will be the beginning of the Eternal Age. Why at that particular time? Because it is at that time that all SIN and REBELLION will have been totally removed from the Kingdom of God.
> > Revelation 21:24, “And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it…” This clearly implies that New Jerusalem will be like “a second moon” in the sky, shining its light down upon the earth. Am I reading an “opinion” into this Scripture? Let’s just see…..
> > In Isaiah 60:19-20, when speaking of the earthly Jerusalem and the land of Israel, the Scriptures explicitly state, “The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.” These inspired Scriptures DO NOT say that the sun and moon will go out of existence. That would not be in harmony with other inspired Scriptures which clearly state that the sun and moon will endure for ever. What these Scriptures DO SAY is that the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem will no longer receive their light from the sun by day and the moon by night. New Jerusalem will be in a “fixed orbit” in the heavens above the land of Israel, and that entire land will be lighted by “the glory of God” shining down upon it both day and night. Praise the Lord!

> > All of these Scriptural truths taken together should make it clear to any honest reader that the future location of New Jerusalem will be above the earth in plain visible sight of those dwelling upon the earth, and it will literally come to pass that “the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it,” Revelation 21:24

If it is in orbit around the Earth like the Moon, it will probably be a globe like the Moon. The Moon material came from the Earth and coalesced into a globe shaped body when each rock tried to get as close to the magnetic core as possible. That is why things we see in space are globe-shaped.

> > Further, the glorified “sons of God” who will be ruling and reigning on the earth with the Lord Jesus Christ, shall then go back and forth between earth and New Jerusalem, even as the angels of God do today, reporting to and worshipping Almighty God, and bringing into New Jerusalem “the glory and honor of the nations” over which they are reigning, Revelation 21:26.

When New Jerusalem is our heavenly home, we will probably go back and forth between Earth and New Jerusalem whether it is in Heaven or orbiting the Earth like the Moon.

Rev 5:9,10 says of the saints after the first Rapture, "And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God KINGS AND PRIESTS: AND WE SHALL REIGN ON (epi, on or over) THE EARTH."

Regarding the Day of God's Wrath, when all the saints are in Heaven, Psa 149:5-9 says, "Let the SAINTS be joyful in glory (i.e., in Heaven): let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute VENGEANCE upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD."

Rev 19:14-15 says, "And the armies which were in heaven FOLLOWED HIM upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and HE TREADETH THE WINEPRESS OF THE FIERCENESS AND WRATH of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS." Isa 63:3-6 says, "I HAVE TRODDEN THE WINEPRESS ALONE; AND OF THE PEOPLE THERE WAS NONE WITH ME: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the DAY OF VENGEANCE (Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets) is in mine heart, and THE YEAR (probably 5776, the height of the Giza Pyramid in inches after the capstone is installed) OF MY REDEEMED IS COME. And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. And I will tread down the people in MINE ANGER, and make them drunk in MY FURY, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

Isa 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind."

Rev 20:1-6 says, "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in THE FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the second death hath no power, but THEY SHALL BE PRIESTS OF GOD AND OF CHRIST, AND SHALL REIGN WITH HIM A THOUSAND YEARS."

Rev 21:1-10 says, "And I saw A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, NEW JERUSALEM, COMING DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me THAT GREAT CITY, THE HOLY JERUSALEM, DESCENDING OUT OF HEAVEN FROM GOD".

Rev 22:5 says, "And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever."

We are part of the First Resurrection. We reign with Christ 1000 years. It seems that our home is in Heaven during the 1000 years, so we must go back and forth between Heaven and Earth, but after the new heaven and new earth, New Jerusalem comes down and orbits the Earth like the Moon.
