Today, many Christians have regarded Jerusalem in the Palestinians as the Holy Land. Some of them is also going on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. But the place we really must go is not the earthly Jerusalem, but the Heavenly one.
The Bible already prophesied that the water of life would flow out from Jerusalem.
(Zch 14:8) On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter.
Where does the water of life come from? It’s Jerusalem. So his people who believe in the prophecy of the Bible must go to Jerusalem to receive the water of life. Then, what does ‘Jerusalem’ the source of water of life mean? Does it represent Jerusalem in the Palestine? When compared with this word from Revelation’s prophecy, it is the Bride who represents Heavenly Jerusalem.
(Rev 22:17) The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.
Here,’the Bride’ gives the water of life. Well, in Rev 21 this Bride represents Heavenly Jerusalem.
(Rev 21:9) 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.”
(Rev 21:10) 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.
The angel showed the Bride was Heavenly Jerusalem. This means the Bride is someone who represents Jerusalem.
Then, who is the Bride exactly?
(Gal 4:26) But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
The apostle paul tells Heavenly Jerusalem is our heavenly mother. The prophecy of Zechariah that the water of life will come out from Jerusalem means that Heavenly Mother will give us the water of life as the reality of the Bride in Rev 22. Namely Zechariah 14 and Revelation 22 ,both testifies that Heavenly Mother who is the Bride will be the source of water of life in the last age.
That is why we must find out and go to the Bride. Without getting the life Heavenly Mother gives, we will not be able to go to Heaven. Let us meet Heavenly Mother who is the source of water of life, so that we may get the blessing of eternal life.
