In The Heavens Far Above All Heavens #18
Beloved saints, please totally delete the words “no longer is” found on line #10 of paragraph #3 of the last article #17. Everything then will make perfect sense.
Rev. 22:1 states “and He shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear (Gr. lampron) as crystal proceeding out of the Throne of God and of the Lamb”. A much more accurate translation of the Greek word “lampron” would be “radiant, bright, shining”. This “water of life” is said to be “radiant as crystal”. The Greek word “lampron” is also described as meaning “brilliant, gorgeous, magnificent, glistening whiteness. Please read Acts & Rev. 15:6. The “bright” clothing of Acts10: 30& the “white” linen of Rev.15:6 are both translations of “lampron” and both are explaining the appearance of messengers from the heavens (angels). The word “lampron” also conveys the idea of “purity”… interesting to say the least! I think it important at this time to mention a scriptural endeavor that I believe would be rewarding & enlightening for all of us. Pursue a study of the “elemental constitution” of the New Jerusalem in Rev. 21:10-27. Compare these scriptures to Ex. 27:20 - 28:43. Measure the two references with Ex. 28:12-19. While weighing & contrasting these three, apply the knowledge gleaned from the books Color InScripture by D.L. Higginbotham & Number In Scripture by E.W. Bullinger. Add to this the following: (IISam.22; Psalms 18,31&41; I Pet.2: 6-8) ...a fabulous study!!!
As we forge on, in the “mining out” of truth, please, in the back of your minds, retain the assertion made back in Article #1... that the discussion of the scriptural phrase en tois epouranios and it’s related truths are “as far reaching in depth and revealed truth as any contained in all of Scripture since it involves a serious under-standing of the Father’s complete plan of redemption from the earth to the very Heaven Far Above All Heavens”.
Article #7 point of view #1, concerning Eph. 1:10, the dispensation of the fullness of times, sets forth that this dispensation will occur totally in the future from our present year 2003AD. That this “dispensing” will take place after the manifestation of the Church which is Christ’s Body in the Heaven Far Above All Heavens (Col.3: 1-4; Eph. 1: 19-23; Eph. 2: 4-7; Eph. 3: 8-11; Col. 2:1-12), after the tribulation period (Rev. 1-19), beyond the 2nd coming of the Lord Jesus Christ (Rev. 19), future to the “catching away” or so called rapture (I Thess. 14-17), beyond the years of the Millenial Kingdom (Rev. 20:1-6), and after the Great White Throne Judgement & the destruction of Satan (Rev. 20:10-15) Continued
