No Need for Sleep in New Jerusalem

There is no need for sleep in New Jerusalem. But how does this mundane statement relate to the revelation in the Bible?

Simple: sleep is a picture of death and there will be no death in New Jerusalem. The first record of sleep is Genesis 2:21, “Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept.” During this deep sleep, Jehovah took a rib out of Adam and formed Eve. In this record the forming of Eve depicts the producing of the church.

New JerusalemThe death of Jesus Christ, portrayed by Adam’s the deep sleep, is very positive and had a wonderful outcome.

Romans 5:12 says, “sin entered into the world, and through sin, death; and thus death passed on to all men.” This death is not positive but the Bible also likens this kind of death to sleep, as in John 11:11-14 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-16.

There will be no need for sleep and no sleepiness in New Jerusalem because there will be no death in New Jerusalem. “Our Savior Christ Jesus, nullified death” (2 Tim. 1:10). This nullification is gradually being applied to us. The consummation of this process is the transfiguration of our corrupted, mortal body at the Lord’s second coming.

“When this corruptible will put on incorruption and this mortal will put on immortality, then the word which is written will come to pass, ‘Death has been swallowed up unto victory.'” (1 Cor. 15:54) New Jerusalem will fully declare this victory.

  1. MAN-MADE CREEDS BY STEVE FINNELL
    Why do men reject the words of Jesus, but accept man-made creeds?

    Many reject what Jesus said in Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. (NKJV)

    MAN-MADE CREED: Those who not believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation can still be saved; because there many other ways to be saved. In other words, saved without believing that Jesus is the Son of God.

    MAN-MADE CREED: Non-believing infants can be saved by having their future sins and the non-exist guilt of Adam’s inherited sin wash away by baptism alone. In other words, infants can be saved and added the the body of Christ without confessing Jesus as Lord and Savior

    MAN-MADE CREED: Men are saved by faith only. In other words, water baptism is not essential for salvation.

    Men can believe in the creed of Jesus or man-made creeds, however, both cannot be true.
