The Secret Condition for the End Time

Recently, in the Internet, many articles about the end time are mounting high. They are saying that “now, it’s the end time, and soon there occurs the World War III.”

Indeed, these end time things always occur through all ages; as a result, most people are indifferent to, or regard them as just the false and insane.

Now, even if many human or natural disasters are increasing strongly, if not fulfilled a secret condition in the Bible, the World War III and the end time – the Second Advent of Jesus – will never come.

The secret condition is supposed to be revealed in this post. Of course, it is also learned from the Second Olive Tree, standing before the God of the earth (Rev. 11:4):

4. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Actually, the condition was clearly written in the Revelation two thousand years ago. But, even though reading it many times, almost all Christians could not interpret it correctly.

In fact, there are many phrases in the Bible that cannot be understood, if it’s not that time for each of them. So, the Bible is the very astonishing and mysterious book!

Now, it’s just the time that the secret condition for the end time is revealed to all people around the world as follows:

In the Revelation, it’s written like this; another angel ascending from the east,  having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads… there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand (Rev. 7:1~4):

1. And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

As said before, or written in < Appendix > of this post, at 1955, two ‘he that overcometh’ already had appeared in Korea, playing the role of Two Olive Trees; ‘he that overcometh’, just like Jacob that overcometh in the Old Testament is destined to complete 12 tribes of spiritual Israel, ‘144,000’.

Now, the Second Olive Tree is sealing the servants of God in their foreheads with another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. In fact, Korea is located in the east.

Four corners of the earth mean four great nations to appear in the end time. Actually, they are US, Japan, China, and Russia, surrounding Korea. As well known to the world, in that region, there is mounting tension between ‘US and Japan’ and ‘China and Russia’; it is continuously increasing enough to make the World War III break out at any time.

According to the Revelation 7:1~4, if the ‘144,000’ fulfilled, four angels standing on the four corners of the earth shall release the four winds of the earth. Then, regardless of the man’s will, the World War III breaks out automatically; at last, it becomes the end time. This is the very secret condition for the end time. It’s too simple? But this is the immortal Truth, even though Jesus said it two thousand years ago.

Meanwhile, some people often insist that the number, ‘144,000’ is just the symbolic meaning. Absolutely, it’s wrong! As written in the Bible, the ‘144,000’ is the perfect number of the righteous saints needed to defeat Satan. It’s from the one hundred days as the perfect light to remove the dark; 60 minutes X 24 hours X 100 days = 144,000.

This perfect light shall cast Satan and his followers into the bottomless pit and bind them for one thousand years (Rev. 20:3):

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.

< Appendix >
‘He that overcometh’, predicted to complete the condition for the end time

To make the Holy Spirit of Jesus, Jesus came down to earth, finally taking up the Cross.

From after completing the Holy Spirit in heaven with the Crucifixion, up to 1955, Jesus had been waiting for ‘him that overcometh’Israel, the spiritual Jacob. Because ‘he that overcometh’, just like Jacob in the Old Testament, is destined to complete 12 tribes of the spiritual Israel, ‘144,000’ – ‘12,000’ per each tribe. So, God promised ‘him that overcometh’ the inheritance of the fountain of the water of life, the Holy Spirit of Jesus (Rev. 21:6~7):

6. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Of course, someone could insist that it is relevant just to the Israelites. But, in the Revelation, Jesus ordered John the Apostle to send the Revelation to seven churches in Asia, not Israel (Rev. 1:11):

11. Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

In addition to that, Jesus when in earth said to the Israelites that “the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof” (Matthew 21:43):

43. Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

After giving the Revelation to John, at first, Jesus was waiting for ‘him that overcometh’ from seven churches in Asia. But ‘he that overcometh’ did not appear in there.

Since then, even for two thousand years, Jesus had been finding out ‘him that overcometh’, the spiritual Jacob, all around the world. This is the Truth, what Jesus told to two ‘him that overcometh’, after having found out them in Seoul, Korea at 1955; and they were anointed as Two Olive Trees standing before the God of the earth. It was done just as God predicted in Hosea that “the beauty of Israel – ‘he that overcometh’ – shall be as the olive tree” (Hosea 14:5~7 ):

5. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
6. His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
7. They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

Thus, two ‘he that overcometh’ are determined to play the role of Two Olive Trees in the Revelation 11:4. This is not the guessing of man, but the plan of God!

Indeed, after the Korean War, Korea has been very vivid in Christianity; it’s strongly related to the appearance of two olive trees. Furthermore, in the past, under Japanese Imperialism and in the Korean War, many Koreans were martyred for their faith in Jesus.

Now, the Second Olive Tree is inviting you, all Christians around the world

Now, the Second Olive Tree is producing the righteous ones to fulfill the number for the Second Advent of Jesus. And, also he is inviting to ‘under his shadow’ you, all Christians around the world.

Don’t miss the knock of Jesus on your door, through the Second Olive Tree in Korea!

“In the golden age of Asia
Korea was one of its lamp-bearers
And that lamp is waiting
to be lighted once again
For the illumination
in the East.”

Really believe in Jesus?

“I truly believe in Jesus”, many Christians is used to say.
Really, believe in Jesus?

If living at Israel when Jesus in earth, could you believe in him – the son of a carpenter – as the Son of God?

Now, it’s time that our belief cannot but be checked seriously:

Satan is not a fallen angel

Most Christians regard Satan as a fallen angel. But it has no evidence in the Bible. And, furthermore, Jesus said that “Satan the devil was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him” (John 8:44).

It is true that Satan was not originated from an angel.
From the beginning, Satan is just Satan.

If many people support something not in the Bible, does it become the Truth?
In Christianity, anything not in the Bible cannot be a truth.
Now, it’s time that all Christian should return to the Bible!

Two Olive Trees are not Moses and Elijah

Meanwhile, Two Olive Trees are written in the Revelation to appear at the end time, ending up fighting against the beast of Satan. But some Christians is used to insist that Two Olive Trees are Moses and Elijah. But it also has no base in the Bible.

Amazingly, two olive trees appeared at 1955 in Seoul, Korea.
This is the Truth that the living God and Jesus in heaven are supporting.

Indeed, since giving the Revelation to John, for circa two thousand years, Jesus had been waiting for ‘him that overcometh’, up to 1955.

Then, ‘he that overcometh’ was destined to play the role of the Olive Tree as written in Hosea (14:5~7):

5. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
6. His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
7. They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

And, as said by God, they that dwell under his shadow shall return to God.

Don’t miss the knock of Jesus on your door!

Of course, this message seems very dubious to you. But let’s assume that we are moved by a time machine to Israel when Jesus in earth. Perhaps, in there, it seems very difficult to believe in Jesus – the son of a carpenter – as the Son of God.

So, before saying that this message is not true, check the veracity of this message:

Please don’t miss the knock of Jesus on your door!

Since 1955,  Two Olive Trees already have been working in Seoul and Gapyeong, Korea.
Now, after preparing all things, the Second Olive Tree is inviting to ‘his shadow’ you, all Christians around the world.

Two Olive Trees, two prophets at the end time, not Moses and Elijah

According to the Revelation, Moses and Elijah cannot be Two Olive Trees, because the Revelation was given to John the Apostle to show to his servants things which must shortly come to pass (Rev. 1:1):

1. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Already, Moses and Elijah were dead in days of John the Apostle. Therefore, they cannot be Two Olive Trees.

Meanwhile, as when Jesus in earth, most people don’t like to accept the living someone as the prophet anointed by God. So, with Open Mind, please check it seriously. As you know well, it’s the very end time.

At 1955, Jesus already sent two olive trees in Seoul, Korea. Now, the Second Olive Tree is inviting to ‘his shadow’ you, all Christians around the world!

All these words are truly supported by the living God and Jesus in heaven.
Please pray for this to Jesus!
May Jesus be with You!

Satan is not a fallen angel

In the Bible, it has no evidences that fallen angel is Satan. The fallen angel theory was originated from not the Bible but just the guessing of human being. Absolutely, any words not supported by the Bible cannot become the truth. To rightly know the true nature of Satan is indispensable to help God and Jesus defeat Satan.

According to the Bible, Jesus said. “Satan the devil was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him” (John 8:44). If Satan is a fallen angel, Jesus couldn’t define him as “a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth”.

Furthermore, Satan, a great red dragon drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth (Rev. 12:3~4):

3. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Indeed, in the last war, Satan is so powerful to cast the third part of the stars(angels) of heaven. In reality, Satan seduced angel to be fallen from the heaven. This is the Very Secret of Secrets. Now, the fallen angels are in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day (Jude 1:6):

6. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

So, the active bad ones are not fallen angels but devils of Satan. To rightly help God and Jesus, first and foremost, all Christians have to know that God and Satan have been fighting against from the beginning.

The man was created as soldiers to defeat Satan.

The Second Olive Tree, ‘he that overcometh’, preparing the Second Advent of Jesus

Most of all Christians are used to say that Jesus completed all things with the Crucifixion. If it’s true:

  • Why did Jesus call up John the Apostle at Patmos island?
  • Why are there still big troubles in earth?
  • Why doesn’t Jesus come yet?

Let me prove that the Crucifixion is not ‘the Necessary and Sufficient Condition’ but ‘the Necessary One’ for the Second Advent of Jesus. Indeed, there is the very Sufficient Condition almost unknown to most of all Christians.

There is the Sufficient Condition for the Second Advent of Jesus

After the resurrection and ascending, Jesus in heaven opened and read the seven sealed book in the right hand of God, ending up sensing that there is a condition to be fulfilled in advance for his second coming:

When Jesus opened the fifth seal, it was clearly unfolded why he could not come down yet. At that moment, John the Apostle saw that under the altar the souls of them, slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And, he heard that they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, do you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?”

And so, it was said unto them that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. From here, it is clearly sensed that the Second Advent of Jesus can be done, just when the righteous ones as the martyred spirits under the altar full up to some fixed number (Revelation 6:9~11):

9. And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11. And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Then,  Jesus was not destined to complete that condition himself. But he was supposed to sit in his throne and wait, until his enemies being his footstool (Pslams 110:1, Luke 20:42~43):

Pslams 110:1. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool
Luke 20:42. And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Luke 20:43. Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

So, Jesus in heaven called up John at Patmos island, noticing him this condition and the fact that someone is needed to satisfy it instead of him.

Now, Jesus cannot come to earth, because the righteous 144,000 is not fulfilled yet

Right after having John write his messages, Jesus spoke – not once but seven times – to the seven churches in Asia. He was eagerly longing for the emerging of ‘him that overcometh’ (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 26~28, 3:5, 12, 21):

In Rev.3:21, Jesus told an awesome covenant. He would grant, to sit his throne with him, to someone else to overcome. In addition to above seven words from Jesus, even God promised to hand over the inheritance of the fountain of the water of life and call him his son (Revelation 21:6~7):

6. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Why Jesus and God give those enormous privileges to ‘him that overcometh’? From Rev. 2:26~27, it is possible to figure out what he is designated for (Revelation 2:26~27):

26. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

To him who overcame and kept Jesus’ works up to the end, Jesus promised the power over the nations, which had been given to Jesus by God. Here, it comes to mind that Jacob ‘overcame’ the pain to be the Israel, finally being the father of 12 tribes of Israel.

Therefore, it is definitely natural, and actually the Truth of God and Jesus that ‘he that overcometh’ becomes the very one, completing the spiritual 12 tribes, 144,000 sealed servants.

Now, ‘he that overcometh’ is fulfilling the righteous number, 144,000. But the number is not completed yet. Thus, Jesus cannot come down to the earth yet.

At 1955, after the Korean War, ‘He that Overcometh’ appeared in Seoul, Korea

For circa two millenniums, from the day of John at Patmos to 1955, Jesus eagerly had been waiting for ‘him that overcometh’ to appear (Rev. 2:7,11,17,26, 3:5,12,21).
It’s because only ‘he that overcometh’ – treated as a Son of God – can receive from God the inheritance of the fountain of the water of life, the Holy Spirit of Jesus ( Rev. 21:6~7):

6. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

This is the Truth that God and Jesus said to John the Apostle at the island, Patmos.
Meanwhile, amazingly, at 1955, after the Korean War, ‘He that Overcometh’ appeared in Seoul, Korea: At that time, the first one was about thirty, and the second one very young, circa 10 years old

‘He that Overcometh’, destined to play the role of the Olive Tree

As predicted in Hosea, ‘He that Overcometh’Israel – is destined to play the role of the Olive Tree (Hosea 14:5~7):

5. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
6. His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
7. They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

As said by God, they that dwell under his(= olive tree) shadow shall return to God.

The Spiritual Power of Two Olive Trees

Of course, they have the spiritual power as mentioned in Rev(11:5~6):

5. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

So, Two Olive Trees, by giving their breathing into the water, can transform it into the living water with the Holy Spirit, the Blood of Jesus. And, to clean all kinds of sin, they can bless their followers by their hands and breathing.

The Second Olive Tree inviting you, all Christians around the World

Now, the Second Olive Tree has completed all the preparation to announce the Work of Two Olive Trees, the Providence of God; and he is inviting you, all Christians around the world.
Above all words are the very Truth that God and Jesus taught to the Second Olive Tree.

If you believe in the Bible, you should take a time to check this. If you read through articles in Two Olive Trees site, summarized from ‘the Holy Message of Jesus through the Second Olive Tree’, I convince, you can know clearly that it is true.

The Fiery Spirit at the day of Pentecost was not the Holy Spirit of Jesus

After the Crucifixion of Jesus, at the day of Pentecost – when the Apostles and followers were one accord in one place – the fiery Spirit sat upon the Apostles. However, unfortunately, it was not the Holy Spirit that Jesus, when in earth, had promised to them. This is absolutely true. If so, why it was not? It is supposed to be answered in here.

In this severely chaotic and misled atmosphere of Christianity, to get the right way to Jesus, it is indispensable for all Christians to know why it was not the Holy Spirit of Jesus. Actually, it is first and foremost invaluable prerequisite to receive the very Holy Spirit of Jesus :

The Water-like Holy Spirit that Jesus promised

John the Baptist, baptizing with water, predicted. “He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.” Indeed, his baptizing with water was supposed to show ahead the water-like trait of the Holy Spirit of Jesus (Mark 1:8):

8. I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

In the conversation with a woman of Samaria, Jesus said to her. “I shall give him the water, whosoever drinking and never thirsting”. This water is the very Holy Spirit of Jesus (John 4:13~14):

13. Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14. But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying: “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

And, John the Apostle explained further about that: (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
It was supposed to emphasize again that the Holy Spirit given after the Cross looks like ‘living water’ (John 7:37~39):

37. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Also, another Comforter, promised to be given by Jesus praying the Father, means just that water-like Holy Spirit (John 14:16):

16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

The Fiery Spirit at the day of Pentecost is not what Jesus promised

After Jesus resurrecting and ascending to heaven, when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they the Apostles and followers were all with one accord in one place. Then, there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them (Acts 2:1~3):

1. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

They, after this, went out and boldly preached about Jesus and his teachings. Among ones listening to their words, others mocking said about them. “These men are full of new wine.” But, it was not from wine, but because they turned red with fiery holy spirit (Acts 2:13):

13. Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

By the way, these cloven tongues like as of fire were not the one promised by Jesus when in earth. It was just the fiery spirit appeared frequently before, even in the Old Testament days (1 Kings 18:38):

38. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

Should fiery spirit be the very one promised by Jesus when in earth, it was definitely needless that Jesus, later on, called up John the Apostle and said. “To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna” (Revelation 2:17):

17. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

The hidden manna, the fountain of the water of life

Because ‘the hidden manna’ means ‘the bread which cometh down from heaven’, the spiritual flesh of Jesus; a man may eat it, ending up not dying (John 6:49~51):

49. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Also, God said to him. “I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things” (Revelation 21:6~7):

6. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

These ‘the hidden manna’ and ‘the water of life’ are just ‘the water never thirst’ and ‘rivers of living water’ promised by Jesus when in earth. All these things mean just ‘another Comforter’ to be given by Jesus praying the Father, God.

However, to give it freely to all human beings, as God said to John the Apostle in the Revelation, it is absolutely needed that ‘he that overcometh’ appears.

The Holy Spirit of Jesus – the Water of Life – only through him that overcometh

Thus, at the day of Pentecost, the Apostles and followers could not receive the water-like Holy Spirit of Jesus, able to remove all sins in a day. Because it was far earlier than when John the Apostle received the Revelation, surely there was not ‘he that overcometh’ to give them the water of life.

So, instead of the water-like Holy Spirit, Jesus could not but send fiery spirits, coming down frequently before, even in the Old Testament days.

As a result, unable to be cleaned out completely, the Apostles could not but be martyred, just like the saints in the Old Testament days, finally coming up to heaven by the keys of hell and death of Jesus (Revelation 1:18):

18. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Indeed, God sent Jesus to the earth, eventually making a stone with seven eyes for removing the iniquity of that land in one day (Zechariah 3:9):

9. For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

So, John the Apostle could see a Lamb with seven eyes, Jesus after resurrecting and ascending (Revelation 5:6):

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.

The seven eyes on a stone – a Lamb, Jesus – are the seven Spirits of God, the perfect Holy Spirit sent forth into all the earth, to remove the iniquity of that land in one day. It is ‘the fountain of the water of life’ to be inherited to ‘him that overcometh’.

Therefore, it is genuinely true that the Holy Spirit of Jesus is got only through ‘him that overcometh’. This is the immortal truth of God!

P.S. For more details, please read 4. Why did God send Jesus? and Two Olive Trees and He that Overcometh.

Still, there is no paradise in heaven

In the funeral, most pastor pray for the dead, commonly saying to his family members and other attendees that today he shall go to paradise in heaven. Then, this is unfortunately wrong. Actually, all dead people cannot go to there ‘today’, because still there is no paradise in heaven. Furthermore, almost all dead people are supposed to be taken into hell. Even though strongly regrettable, it’s absolutely true. To know why it is, now, let’s make a scrutiny into the Bible:

The hell is the second heaven

Here, the hell is just the world under the reigning of Satan. Paul the Apostle said that Satan is the prince of the power of the air. And, also, Jesus told to his disciples. “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Just this heaven and the air means the hell, the spiritual world under the reigning of Satan (Ephesians 2:2, Luke 10:18):

Ephesians 2:2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Luke 10:18. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Thus, there are three heavens. This universe with the earth is the first one, the hell is the second, and finally, the third heaven that Paul the Apostle confessed his being caught up to. It is the world where God and Jesus are staying (2 Corinthians 12:2):

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.

Since the expulsion from the garden of Eden, all dead ones are destined to go to hell. It’s written, in the Revelation, like this: “Death is always followed by Hell” (Revelation 6:8):

8. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

The First Death and the First Resurrection

So, inevitably, until before the Resurrection of Jesus, all the dead had been taken into hell by two devils. Therefore, even the saints – dead before the Resurrection of Jesus – could not help being taken to the hell. But, after the Resurrection of Jesus, at last, the very way – to escape the hell or not to go to hell – was opened. Sensing this in advance, David the King eagerly wished. “Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption” (Acts 2:25~27):

25. For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
26. Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27. Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Indeed, after the Resurrection, Jesus had the keys of hell and of death (Revelation 1:18):

18. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

With this key of hell, Jesus saved the saints from the hell, eventually getting them into the holy city in the third heaven. This holy scene was shown to Matthew the Apostle in his dream (Matthew 27:52~53):

52. And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53. And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

This means the first resurrection. It is written, in the Revelation 20:6, like this: “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection.” It’s due to the fact that they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years (Revelation 20:6):

6. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

The Second Death and the Second Resurrection 

Most of spirits taken to the hell after the first death should wait in the hell, until the last war between God and Satan finishes (Revelation 20:5~10):

5. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
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.
9. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

After that, they are supposed to be judged by the righteous number – 144,000. Among them, many spirits written in the books was cast into the lake of fire. It is the second death. Therefore, it is easily sensed that the number of spirits written in another bookthe book of lifeis much smaller than them written in the books. (Revelation 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.

Paradise: a New Heaven and a New Earth

On the other hand, the spirits written in another bookthe book of life – are destined to be alive. It is the second resurrection. They will live in a new heaven and a new earth, aka paradise (Revelation 21:1):

1. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

In a nutshell, the paradise – a new heaven and a new earth – shall be made, after casting Satan and his followers into the lake of fire and brimstone and judging spirits in the books and another book – the book of life.

So, still there is no paradise in heaven.
