PROLOGUE

Brothers and sisters, today’s topic of Treasures for the Soul is “God has prepared a heavenly home for us.”

One of God’s names is “the Lord will provide”—on the mount of the Lord it shall be provided. It is so precious that God prepared for us the Lord Jesus and His salvation. The Lord even became a man forever and He brought us to God. Both the Lord and Abba are preparing the heavenly home for us—the New Jerusalem. This is the Father’s house: most amazing, far beyond what has been seen, heard or imagined. This is the eternal heavenly home prepared for the Bride, by the Lord, our Beloved of manifold love.

Message

Part 1

It’s so precious that one of God’s names is “the Lord will provide.” The everlasting, self-existing and infinite one has prepared for us since eternity past. The Father, the Lord and the Holy Spirit have a never ending love dream. Only the Trinity God knows it best, and this was their joy ahead. Although man sinned, God prepared for us our precious Saviour and the perfect salvation. For this to happen, the Beloved Son of God had to become a man forever. The Father prepared a body for Him. Because of love, the Lord also desired to be a man forever. To show His determination, the Father even swore to appoint Him as the High Priest. This oath ensured that the Lord would surely become a man and die for us. Furthermore, He will live for us forever, in order to bring us back to Himself and for us to enjoy Him—the origin of all blessings, life, love, beauty, truth and sincerity. He is the living spring that satisfies all our hearts.

Part 2

We were created for the Father, the Lord, the Holy Spirit, and Their will. We were to become the household of God. The Lord went to prepare a place for us, which is called the Father’s house. We are men, created to become God’s family. This is also God’s house, the Father’s house and our house. We are most deeply united with God. The Lord is preparing a place for us. He told us that there are many rooms in His Father’s house. It is so precious that our names have already been written in the Lamb’s book of life. The most beautiful Beloved of manifold love prepares for us a dwelling place. It is a place that exceeds far beyond what any groom on earth can prepare for his bride. The King of manifold love has prepared a better home for His bride. This home is the most magnificent place in the whole universe, a restful dwelling place for God and us through eternity.

Part 3

When we face so many challenges on earth, the Lord is capable of preparing a table before us in the presence of our enemies. By our Beloved, we can come up from the wilderness.

When I thought about New Jerusalem, prepared for us by the Father, I couldn’t help but to clap my hands while I was walking along the street today. 1 Corinthians 2:9 tells us: “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— Only God knows all. Now we can only comprehend as much as God has revealed to us. Since we have gained the Father and the Lord as well, we know for sure what has been prepared for us is extremely precious, beautiful and marvellous! When you have this knowledge, you would know it’s beyond words, truly the best! That’s why I couldn’t help but to clap my hands on the street. When I thought of what our true Beloved had prepared for us, I clapped my hands again! This reminds me of what happened years ago: when I was preaching the gospel to the children on the street, I talked about the streets of gold and walls of jasper. Although they had not yet believed, they also clapped their hands!

New Jerusalem is a real city

Message Date: 2020-04-10

The Lord said He went to prepare a place for us. When He has prepared it, He would come again to take us to be with Him. This place is New Jerusalem. However, many Christians nowadays are not so clear whether the New Jerusalem in heaven is a real city. Being affected by Greek culture and beliefs, some think that physical substances are not spiritual. So, they take New Jerusalem as a non-physical symbolic expression. Satan also wants to make people unclear and unsure of the things in heaven, so that they would not desire them. This series of messages list out many Bible verses to assure us that New Jerusalem is indeed a real city, which is also full of spiritual meanings.
