The Importance of Heavenly Cities

The Importance of Heavenly Cities

By Bill Brady

I awoke with a word of framing this morning:

  • “I am a door.  I saw the first four.  Others will see the rest.”
  • I was given revelation of the nature of the first 4 of 12 heavenly cities.
  • The nature of a heavenly city is in its name.
  • Its name is its function.
  • Others will be given the revelation of the nature of the other 8 heavenly cities.

I am greatly honored to have had this function as part of my destiny.

  • I am passing the baton to others.
  • They will have the honor of revealing the nature of the remaining 8 cities.

The pattern of the name and function of heavenly cities is revealed in NJ. 

  • Starting with her name.
  • She is a new beginning of the holy city of Jerusalem.  
  • She prepares us as a bride for our husband.

Here are some other things that she is:

  • She is a door.
  • She is a foundation.
  • She is in New Earth.

New Jerusalem (NJ) is a door.

  • She is a door into union with Jesus as King into 12 aspects of His Kingship.
  • She is a door to the remaining heavenly cities.

NJ is a foundation.

  • The Ecclesia is built up into 12 aspects of Jesus’ Kingship with NJ as the foundation.
  • The remaining heavenly cities are built upon the foundation of NJ.

NJ is on New Earth.

  • NJ is revealed to us in Rev 21 and 22 in the context of New Heaven and New Earth.
  • She is revealed as descending onto New Earth.

Here are some other things that have been revealed about NJ: 

  • She brings us into union with Jesus and one another.
  • She becomes our dwelling place.
  • She is the City of Truth.
  • She gave birth to the True Wineskin.
  • She then landed on New Earth.

She brings us into union with Jesus and one another.

  • We enter NJ as kings.
  • We remain kings.
  • We enter into the beginnings of sonship.
  • We become a bride prepared for union with her husband.
  • We become one with Jesus in the union of marriage.
  • This is in fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer in John 17.

She became our dwelling place.

  • Jesus said, “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places.”
  • Jesus has a room in NJ.
  • So do we.
  • NJ becomes our permanent dwelling place.

NJ is the City of Truth. 

  • This is her name.
  • This is her function.
  • When we enter NJ we come into union with Jesus as the Truth.
  • Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
  • We corporately become united with Jesus as the Truth.
  • We each become united with Jesus as the Truth.
  • We are given the ability to say, “I am the truth.”
  • We become revelation of truth.
  • And become able to impart truth to others once we become fathers.

NJ gave birth to the True Wineskin.

  • The Ecclesia travailed in union with NJ to give birth to the True Wineskin.
  • The True Wineskin is full of Jesus as the True Wine.
  • We can drink Jesus as True Wine and become full of True Wine.

NJ landed on New Earth.

  • We heard the sound of her landing on New Earth.
  • We governmentally landed her onto New Earth and on top of old Jerusalem.

NJ calls to the Ecclesia to enter her.  She says, “Come!”

  • We hear the call of the Spirit and the Bride and enter NJ.
  • We then become part of that call.

In entering NJ we enter into the Kingdom.

  • In Zion we inherit the kingdom.
  • In Everlasting we possess the kingdom.

In each of these aspects NJ is a pattern for the remaining 11 heavenly cities.

  • The pattern repeated for the next 3 cities: Zion, City Everlasting and City of Light.
  • It will be repeated for the remaining 8 heavenly cities.
