New Heaven New Earth (Shincheonji)

Main reference: Rv 21 

What is the meaning of ‘new heaven and new earth’? The ‘new heaven’ means a new tabernacle (temple), and ‘new earth’ means a new location (a place of the new temple) and the flesh body (saints). In Revelation 21:1 it says, “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away”. If you interpret it literally, then the blue sky above and earth below should disappear and there should be new sky and earth created.

In Revelation 13, God’s dwelling place and those who live in heaven, were attacked, persecuted, and disappear. This means they have disappeared from being with God. In Revelation 6, the heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up and every mountain and island was removed from its place, so heaven and earth are now gone. This is the disappearance of first heaven and earth, which is stated in the main reference. We can also see in Genesis 1, there was heaven and earth before creating the new heaven and earth (Gn 1:1-2). In Revelation there is a new heaven created after the previous heaven disappears (Rv 6, 7, 13, 14). 

In Exodus 25:9, 40 Moses created the tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern in heaven (spiritual world). Moses’ tabernacle was heaven upon the earth. In the same way, Jesus saw the structure in heaven and created the same pattern on earth according to what he saw (Jn 5:19-20). The tabernacle of Spiritual Israel is the tabernacle of heaven on this earth. That is why the dwelling place in Revelation 13 is called ‘heaven’ (Rv 13:6). Why is the dwelling place (church: temple) called heaven? Since the people of God are called the sun, moon, and stars (refer to Gn 37:9-11), the place where sun, moon, and stars exist is heaven.  

Jesus said “for all the prophets and the law prophesied until John” (Mt 11:13, Lk 16:16). In the same way, at the time of the second coming of Jesus, the tabernacle of Spiritual Israel (churches), pastors, and the prophecies remain until the time of seven messengers of tabernacle of heaven in Revelation 13. At the first coming of Jesus, Physical Israel was the era of the first heaven and Spiritual Israel was the era of the second or new heaven. At the time second coming of Jesus, what was created at the time of the first coming (Spiritual Israel), remains until the appearance of the seven messengers. It then becomes the era of the first heaven and the recreation of the 12 tribes at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment (New Spiritual Israel) becomes the era of the second heaven. 

The sun, moon, and stars of heaven in Revelation 6 and Matthew 24 are darkened and fall, as it also stats in Revelation 8. This indicates the end of God’s chosen people at that time. Spiritual Israel (Christianity) has become corrupted, because of this; Satan is able to destroy the people of God as it says in Revelation 13. The group of Satan (Babylon, Rv 17) captured the people of God and they became their slaves.

Like the times of Noah, Lot, and the first coming of Jesus, today’s people of Spiritual Israel believe they are with God, even though they have become corrupted. Like the sun, moon, and stars, they fall from heaven. They no longer belong to heaven but have become the people of the earth. Spiritual Israel began by the Holy Spirit in Mark’s attic (Acts 2), but after 2000 years, they became flesh (earth) and part of Satan’s world. No one has known about this development.

At this time, just as it was in the time of Noah and the first coming of Jesus, God ended the corrupt world of Spiritual Israel and created a new heaven and people through the promised shepherd (pastor). The child, who was born from a woman clothed with the sun and the child’s brothers in Revelation 12, fought with the pastor of Satan and were victorious. Through this victory the era of Shinchonji has started, the New Spiritual Israel is created and this creation is the “new heaven new earth”, Shinchonji (Rv 21:1).

If you look at today’s religious world, they do not know anything about the new covenant. They simply fight with each other for money, authority, and power. They seem to care more about money, power, and authority, rather than faith. Do you think God and Jesus will be with people like this?

At a time like this, God purchases people with Jesus’ blood and washes them clean to create God’s new world (kingdom) and people (Rv 5:9-10, 7:9-14). God fulfilled the promised prophesy (Revelation).

Before the era of Shinchonji was opened and the 12 tribes created, there was no salvation for the people of today. If someone wants to be a person of Shinchonji, then he or she must take to heart what is written in Revelation (refer to Rv 22:18-19). Shinchonji is God’s new world and heaven, where God will dwell forever. People of Shinchonji are the family of God. This is the place where the saints’ hopes have come true.

Whoever does not believe this truth does not believe God. Whoever believes this truth believes the word of God and His covenant and earns salvation and eternal life.
