And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. Luke‬ ‭24:49‬.

  • City of Truth — New Jerusalem City is called the city of truth because the people going there have been set free by the truth. John 8:32. Prior to being set free by the Truth, they were in bondage; being slaves to sin and death. They were delivered from that bondage by the death of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary. Thus saith the Lord; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the holy mountain. Zechariah‬ ‭8:3‬. ❤️
  • City of Righteousness — New Jerusalem City is called the city of righteousness because the people inheriting this city are clothed with the righteousness of God. And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. Isaiah‬ ‭1:26‬. Righteousness means obedience to God’s laws and commandments. At water baptism, we first attain His righteousness and there on grow into the fullness of His stature. Mathew 3:15. ❤️
  • The Faithful City — New Jerusalem City is called the faithful city because the people inheriting this city were faithful to God throughout their life on earth —they were Called, Chosen and Faithful. And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. Isaiah‬ ‭1:26‬. At the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we become faithful witnesses to God. Acts 1:8, Revelation 1:5. ❤️
  • City of God — New Jerusalem City is called the city of God because it is the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. Psalms‬ ‭46:4. The River refers to the Water of Life, whose origin is from the throne of God and of the Lamb. Revelation 22:1. Whosoever drinks of this River experiences divine healing or health. And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh. Ezekiel‬ ‭47:9‬. ❤️
  • The Holy Mountain — New Jerusalem City is called the holy mountain because it is the dwelling place of the Lord of hosts. Mt. Zion is the capital of this city. Thus saith the Lord; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the holy mountain. Zechariah‬ ‭8:3‬. ❤️
