the glorious news, through this White Stone, of the extension of the
Work now to the four corners of the Earth.
And I saw a
new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth
away; and there was no more sea.
2. And I
John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of
a bride adorned for her husband.
3. And I
heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of
God is with
men, and he
will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself
and be their God.
4. And God
shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no
sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the
5. And he
that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he
said unto me,
these words are true and faithful.
6. And he
said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and
I will give
unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life
9. And there
came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full
last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew

10. And he

city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God…
12. And had
a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the twelve gates
written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the
children of Israel:
13. On the
east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three
gates; and on the west
14. And the
wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of
15. And he
that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the
and the wall
16. And the
city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth:
and he measured
with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and breadth and
height of it are equal.
17. And he
measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits,
of a man, that is, of the angel…
22. And I
saw no temple therein: for the Lord Almighty and the Lamb are the
temple of it.
23. And the
city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it:
the glory of
God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
24. And the
nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and
of the earth
do bring their glory and honour into it.
25. And the
gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no
26. And they
shall bring the glory and honour of the nations to it.
there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither
abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the
Lamb’s book of life.
