It had a great and high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names were written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. Rev.21:12
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. Rev.21:21
Heb.12:22 But you “have” come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God
You are the city of God the lambs wife, there is one street of gold in you it is his nature, the lamb is your light and you have no need of sun (natural light) nor the moon (artificial light) your gates must always remain open, and your foundation cannot be broken.
There are two cities of Jerusalem one from above that is free which we have now come to in Christ, and the one from beneath which is still in bondage with her children.
“But the Jerusalem above is free; she is our mother”. Galatians 4:26
Each gate in the city is one pearl which is made by one grain of sand at a time (truth) in the deep darkness (hopelessness) through the secretions within the Oyster which involves pain.
