1. SOME OF THESE DOCTRINES SAY‚ "OH, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A CLASSLESS SOCIETY WHERE EVERYBODY IS EQUAL & NOBODY'S ABOVE & NOBODY'S BELOW!"—THERE'S NO SUCH THING! Not even Heaven is like that! In the Heavenly City there are twelve levels! Revelation 21st & 22nd Chapters describe that City: 1500 miles wide & 1500 miles long! It's going to go beyond the stratosphere, clear off into Outer Space! 1500 miles is a long ways up, you know! I don't think any of the satellites that circled the Earth even went that high—just the ones that went off to the moon! Most of the others varied from 300 to 600 miles up—only half as high as this City's going to be tall!
2. I HATE CITIES & TALL BUILDINGS BUILT BY MAN! They're an imitation of God's City, but they only mean death & bring death. Big cities are a curse to civilisation! Villages & small towns, that's different, but big cities like New York, Chicago, London, etc., are a curse & they have nothing but problems! As Dr. Toynbee, the great English historian said: "Cities are cancerous sores on the body politick of the World!"
3. NEW YORK‚ THE LARGEST CITY IN THE WORLD, IS NOW BANKRUPT & IS GOING TO CRASH! It's going to go to pieces, fall apart, because there's no solution for a problem which should not exist! If there's no solution for the problem, then get rid of the problem! As Barry Goldwater himself said‚ one of the leading Republicans in the U.S.: "The best thing we could do with New York City would be to saw it off & shove it out to sea & let it sink! The whole country would be better off without it!"
4. NEW YORK IS HELL ON EARTH FULL OF DEVILS & CRIMINALS & DIABOLICAL FIENDS, & they've been wasting money there in that town by the billions of dollars!—On what?—Crooked politicians & Mafia gangsters stick it in their pockets‚ & waste it on education that's not worth two cents! At last they're going to have to cut off this free education which has been costing 13 billion dollars a year at the New York University to educate all the little gangsters how to be smarter so they can be Mafia bigshots! Well, that's not the kind of city God is going to have!
5. GOD'S CITY IS GOING TO BE PERFECT & PURE & GOVERNED BY GOD HIMSELF, & IT'S GOING TO BE BEAUTIFUL! It's not going to be beautiful, it's already beautiful! Jesus has been working on it ever since He left. He said, "Let not your heart be troubled‚ if you believe in God, believe also in Me. For in My Father's House are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you." (Jn.14:1-2) Now since He said many mansions, some of these people got the idea everybody's going to have some kind of a big palace or something! But in the original‚ it means something more like many different quarters. It might just even be apartments!
6. SO IT'S GOING TO BE A PERFECT CITY, PERFECT GOVERNMENT, PERFECT CONSTRUCTION, WITH MANY LEVELS, at least twelve divisions, with Christ Himself at the Summit‚ & shaped like a Pyramid! I'm convinced it's either shaped like a pyramid or a dome, one or the other, but from all indications & from a lot of former things & revelations & the old legends even of the Egyptians, it seems it'll be pyramidical. This is why the Egyptians built their tombs in pyramidical shape, because they themselves had seen in vision that the Heavenly City was going to be built like a pyramid!
7. SO EVEN IN HEAVEN, THE MOST PERFECT CITY IN THE WORLD, THERE ARE GOING TO BE DIFFERENT LEVELS & DIFFERENT CLASSES—SOME VERY HIGH, SOME VERY LOW! Well, you can certainly understand that, can't you, considering the kind of Christians there are! Some of the Christians I know & we know & history has known have been saints & have died as martyrs for their faith‚ giving their lives in love that others might be saved! Where do they deserve to be? I believe they're going to be at the Top near the Lord in His Court!
8. BUT I KNOW SOME CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE LIVED SELFISHLY FOR THEMSELVES ALL THEIR LIVES! They couldn't give a damn about other people! They claim to have faith in Jesus as their Saviour, but they go to church on Sunday & then they say, "Good-bye God‚ I'll see You next week!"—And live totally selfishly for themselves! They don't deserve to be anywhere, really, & I'll be surprised if some of them get in! But if they're there anywhere, they're probably going to be downstairs in the basement shining shoes or mopping floors!
9. I ALWAYS WONDERED WHO POLISHES THE FLOOR IN THAT BIG HUGE ROOM THAT I'VE HAD A VISION OF SEVERAL TIMES, with all that long line of thrones that disappears into the distance! The floor is so shiny & polished!—Maybe it has a permanent shine! Those walls & the building & the floors & all are composed of precious stones—rubies‚ diamonds‚ sapphires, topaz, all the precious jewels you can think of! Beautiful!—And apparently of a kind of material as yet not known to man! A sort of golden crystal material that you can even see through is going to be the major material, something we don't yet have!
10. WELL‚ I'VE BEEN THERE, I'VE SEEN IT, & IT'S BEAUTIFUL!—The most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life! I was lifted up in the Spirit & taken there, just like John was taken to Heaven to see things! It's so fantastic you can't even describe all the things! I tried to describe to you some of these things in "Space City" (No.75A), but it's just fantastic, beautiful!—The most beautiful thing God has ever made outside of women! God bless them!
11. IN FACT‚ HE EVEN USES YOU WOMEN TO SYMBOLISE THAT CITY, & HE CALLS THAT CITY HIS BRIDE, THE NEW HEAVEN, THE NEW JERUSALEM! How about that? He couldn't think of anything more beautiful to symbolise that City than you beautiful girls, so He called it His Bride! Why?—Because His Bride's going to live there! And who's His Bride?—We are! All of us! Not just you women, but all of us in this case! It's kind of a strange symbolism‚ but that's the way it is! Christ's Bride is both male & female, because there is no male or female in Christ Jesus! (Gal.3:28)
12. SO HEAVEN IS NOT GOING TO BE A CLASSLESS SOCIETY & IT IS NOT GOING TO BE ALL ON ONE LEVEL! Jesus said, "Every man shall be rewarded according to his works‚ & to whom much hath been given, of the same shall much be required." (Mt.16:27; Lk.12:48) If He only gave you one talent, He's not going to require much more; but if He gave you five or ten talents, He's going to expect a lot! He's the Boss & you'd better produce! If He's given you all that wisdom & all that talent & all that education & all that experience, He's going to expect a lot out of you, like He does me!
13. I HAD 50 YEARS OF EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE BEFORE I STARTED THE REAL JOB GOD WANTED ME TO DO!—And He expected me to deliver & I thank God I think I have, to the best of my ability! I have already written four times as much as there is in the Bible! You poor kids, you have to read it all! God help us! Thank God you don't have to read that much to get saved! You only have to read one verse in the Bible to be saved, just John 3:16 or one of those! That's all it takes to save you. Otherwise, most of you probably wouldn't make it, because most of you probably have never read all my Letters! Volume 1 we might consider the most precious of all, because they are the old Letters we wrote in the very beginning!
