Painting Of The Seven Spirits Of God In Revelations

Painting Of The Seven Spirits Of God In Revelations

King James Version (KJV)
Revelation 4:5
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Revelation 5
5 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
The Cross on the right side of the painting is composed of the saved people worshipping God (if you look closely.

Painting Of New Jerusalem - City Of God's Kingdom On Earth (close up view)

New Jerusalem - City Of God's Kingdom On Earth
 This painting of the New Jerusalem City of God's Kingdom on earth is a close-up of the huge city.  The  City is so large that if viewed in its entirety, the gates would not be visible unless they were very large.  See the last post and the painting below to see how the city would look if it were on earth and viewed from space looking down on earth and read on that post more about it.  It is over half the size of America.  Someday, if born again we will live in that city.  The walls of the city are made of clear Jasper gemstoneOut of that city will flow the river of life.  The city is square and has three pearl gates on each side with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel on each one.  The door on the gate is a pearl and the gate will always be open.  This painting shows the gate with the tribe of Judah on it.  Jesus was of the tribe of Judah.  The foundation is made of twelve different gemstones with the names of the 12 apostles of Jesus on each one because they are the foundation of the church (they started the church and spread the gospel).  The first gemstone is amethyst and Peter is listed as the first apostle so his name is on the first bottom gemstone.  There is also an angel at each gate.

Painting Of New Jerusalem - City Of God's Kingdom On Earth

Painting Of New Jerusalem City Of God

The New Jerusalem, the Bride of the Lamb
...he showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It had a great, high wall with twelve gates and with twelve angels at the gates.  On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.  There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west.  The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb
And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.  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.  (Approximately 1374 miles long, 1374 miles wide, 1374 miles high)  And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.  And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones.  The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;  The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
"And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and the Lamb. In the midst of its wide street, and on each side of the river, was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit monthly, and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there will be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it; and his servants will serve him: and they will see his face; and his name will be on their foreheads. And there will be no night there; and they have no need of the light of a lamp, nor of the light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they will reign forever and ever." Rev.22:1-5.
Revelation 4:3 KJV
And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

Can you find in the painting New Jerusalem...
The Tree of Life
The twelve gemstones of the twelve apostles of the foundation
The pearl gates
The River of the Water of Life
The clear jasper walls of the city
The clear golden city inside the walls
The Emerald rainbow over the throne of God

"The Church has waited long
Her absent Lord to see;
And still in loneliness she waits,
A friendless stranger she.
Age after age has gone,
Sun after sun has set,
And still, in weeds of widowhood,
She weeps, a mourner yet."
"The whole creation groans,
And waits to hear that voice
That shall restore her comeliness,
And make her wastes rejoice.
Come, Lord, and wipe away
The curse, the sin, the stain,
And make this blighted world of ours
Thine own fair world again.
Come, then, Lord Jesus, come!"
Rev. H. A. Bonar, (Eng.)
