The name of the heavenly Jerusalem

The Names that we have to know for the salvation

The bible teaches us that we must call on the name of God for our salvation. It does not just say that we have to believe in God. Rather, the bible says that we have to know the name of God the Savior and when we pray in the name of God we can be saved.

Joel 2:32 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

For this reason, God gave the name Jehovah to His people that they maybe saved with the name of God; and Jesus 2000 years ago. Then how about in the last day? Can we be saved in the name of Jesus in the last day too? The bible says that we have to know the new name of Jesus for our salvation.

The Names of Savior in the Last Day

Jesus’ New Name

Revelation 2:17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.

2000 years ago, Jesus foretold what would happen in the last days to Apostle John. And in this prophecy, Jesus says that he would give a new name to his people in the last days. Then whose name is this?

Revelation 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

In this prophecy, he teaches us that he would reveal “his (Jesus’) new name” in the last day. This is the name of the Savior in the last day. Therefore, those who want salvation in the last day must know the new name of Jesus and call on his new name for their salvation. Not only that, he teaches that we have to know the name of the new Jerusalem coming from heaven.

The Name of the Heavenly Jerusalem

Then who is this heavenly Jerusalem and why should we know the name of the heavenly Jerusalem? First, let us find out who the heavenly Jerusalem is. The Book of Revelation shows us about the heavenly Jerusalem coming down from heaven in the last day.

Revelation 21:9 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.

Here, Apostle John was shown through a vision, the heavenly Jerusalem coming to the earth as the bride of the Lamb. Since the Lamb signifies Jesus Christ, the wife of the Lamb means the wife of Jesus and She is the heavenly Jerusalem.

God the Father and the Water of Life

Then what is the purpose of her coming down to this earth?

Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.

The water of life is eternal life as we can confirm through the words of Jesus. (John 4:13-14) Therefore, we can know this is the prophecy about the Savior in the last day who was to come and give the water of eternal life to his people who are thirsty and who wishes.

Then who are coming as Savior in the last day? The verse above says it is the Spirit and the bride who give the water of life. The Spirit is Jesus who also appeared as the Lamb in Chapter 21, who was the bridegroom in the prophecy. And according to the Trinity, the Spirit or the Lamb is God the Father who can give us eternal life.

God the Mother and the Water of Life

Then who is the heavenly Jerusalem, the bride of the Lamb who comes down from heaven in the last day to give the water of life?

Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

Here Apostle Paul teaches us the identity of the heavenly Jerusalem and he says that she is “our mother”, which means God the Mother. By connecting the verses from Revelation and Galatians we can know these are the prophecies of the appearance of God the Mother in the last day. God the Mother would appear as the bride of the Lamb (God the Father) to give the water of life.

The Names of God the Father and God the Mother

Therefore, these are the prophecies of the appearance of God the Father and God the Mother for our salvation in the last day. Then when they appear, how can we receive the salvation of the water of life? To receive the water of life, we must call on the names of the Savior. That is why Revelation says that we have to know the names of God in the last days.

Revelation 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

In this prophecy God teaches us that we have to receive two names in the last day: that is, the name of the heavenly Jerusalem and the new name of Jesus. What are these names? They are the name of the Saviors in the last day who gives the water of life: the name of God the Father and the name of God the Mother.
