-The Navigation of the Religious World Symbolized by the 1st /2nd /3rd Heaven, Earth and Sea
“And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” <Rev 5:13>
A: The First Heaven (Holy people: those are spiritually alive-symbolize those who are recorded in the book of life, wash their robes and go towards the tree of life.V-belong to God) (Rev 22:14)
B: Earth (People who live on earth: those who have not reached the revealed faith and are spiritually confused- they symbolize those who still reside in chaos and are not recorded in the book of life.) (Rev 20:15)
C: Sea (Dead people spiritually: those who have already been tempted and are spiritually dead – belong to Satan)(Isa 27:1)
D: The Second Heaven (Hades: the waiting place of judgment for those who cannot go to heaven and are physically dead) (Lk 16:19-31)
E: The Third Heaven (Paradise: symbolized as heaven)(2 Co12:1-4)
F: Bottomless pit: Prison (Rev 20:3/Rev 20:7/Rev 9:2-3)
G: Lake of fire: Hell (Rev 20:15) Hell: Hades + Lake of fire
First of all, because all human are spiritual beings, if somebody unite with the Holy Spirit, he or she can go directly to Third Heaven after death which is paradise(Lk 23:43) and if somebody unite with evil spirit, he or she goes to Hades after death which is the waiting place of judgment. In the hour of temptation, which comes upon all the world, that’s really important for everybody’s future.
<2 Co 12:2-4> 2 I knew a man 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. 3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for aman to utter.
<Lk 23:39-43> 39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise
<Lk 16:19-31> 19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: 28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them 30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
<Rev 20:11-15> 11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Here(F), the bottomless pit refers to a hole of the spiritual world (Jude 1:6/2 Pe 2:4/Jer 2:13) in which corrupted angels that did not remain in their places but have left their habitations are imprisoned and changed into evil spirits from God (1 Sa 16:14-16).
<Rev 20:1-3> 1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 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.
<Rev 20:7-8> 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Also, the “third part” with personification which continues to come up throughout Revelation Chapter 8 symbolizes the sea of spiritual death in which Satan dwells, just as the dead sea in which no life can live. When you divide the religious world into heaven, earth and sea, the sea takes up one third of the whole, and subsequently, the “third part” represents those who belong to Satan and have faced spiritual deaths.
<Rev 12:12> 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time
<Mt 24:31> 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
<Isa 27:1> 1 In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
<Am 8:11-13> 11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: 12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. 13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
Therefore, the “third part” in Revelation Chapter 8 is used to mean the spiritually dead people who have been deceived by Satan. The dying of the third part here refers not to an actual, physical death but rather the death in Hades from being deceived by the followers of Satan, leaving the truth to be a part of the sea and becoming those who are not saved and are spiritually dead.
<Rev 8:6-12> 6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
Looking closely at the religious world, believers are divided into three groups: holy people of the first heaven (belong to God), dwellers on the earth (not yet decided), and the dead of the sea (belong to Satan), each of who takes up one third of the total number.
<Zec 13:7-9> 7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
<Mk 14:27> 27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
<Rev 13:6-9> 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
<Dt 28:9-10> The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways. 10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
The Kingdom of Christ in the end times, the church in Philadelphia, which is called the “First Heaven” on earth because there is a gate to heaven opened by the key of David (Ge 28:12-14/Isa 22:20-22).
Therefore, the Holy people of the “First Heaven” who are saved and die in the Lord transcend death and reach God’s paradise, “the Third Heaven”. Here, the Holy people of the “First Heaven” are spiritually alive-symbolize those who are recorded in the book of life, wash their robes and go towards the tree of life.
They experience an instantaneous transference of dimensions through which the tabernacle of body, which is a protective shield in this life, is stripped away and instead takes on the Holy body, symbolizing an eternal dwelling place, from the Third Heaven and proceeds to the step of the everlasting life. He or she will never see death and taste of death. (Jn 8:51-52/Jn11:25-26)
This is the special blessing for the brides of Jesus in the end times after appearance of the Kingdom of Christ following the time when the world changes into the kingdom of our Lord and Christ since the day when the seventh angel sounds his trumpet. (Rev 11:15/Rev10:7/1 Co 15:51-54)
Appearance of The Kingdom of Christ to join in the resurrection of life and eternal life
“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”<Rev 11:15>
New Generation of the mankind: appearance of the bridal symbiotic community of Jesus that constitutes the kingdom of Christ as God’s priests
Since the salvation of the whole, holy body that reaches the first resurrection bears fruit by joining in the kingdom of Christ in the end times, each believers will become a servant of the Lord, who is the kingdom of the Lord and the priests that are like kings. This is achieved according to the journey of the religious world that constitutes the brides community of Jesus Christ.
<Rev 21:9-10> 9 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. 10 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 21:17> 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
<Rev 21:14> 14. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
“The mystery of the seventh trumpet” <Rev 10:7>
<1 Co 15:41-49>⇐<1 Co 15:51-54/2 Co 5:1-5>
⇓ <2 Pe 1:13-15>
<Rev 10:7> 7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
<1 Co 15:51-54> 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
Thus, the Holy Spirit has been given as an assurance in order for us to achieve this Holy body of eternal life (2 Co 5:5).
<2 Co 5:1-5> 1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
<Jn 11:25-26> 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
<Jn 8:51-54> 51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. 52. Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. 53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? 54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
<Php 3:20-21> 20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 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
