Thus, the problem of parallel universe for you, too, is of interest, I decided to write to you and ask to read twenty-first chapter, "Revelation," where, I think, St. John gives a symbolic description ofa parallel universe. My article "hereafter OR DIVINE UNIVERSEUNIVERSE" in Russian and English is available at www.tracts.com / MB.html, where I tried to decipher the 21 chapters of "Revelation."For me it is very important to know on this subject for your opinion.Regards Manfred Beglaryan.

The Revelation of St. John
21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs.
The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

THE OTHER WORLD
OR DIVINE CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE
25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. (John. 11, 25-26).
Here it is not going about the resurrection of the physical body but about that of the divine non-material spiritual creature being formed up in the physical body which is separated from the dead body and begins to exist independently. Nicodemus comes to Jesus at night and talks to him; (john3-5, 6):
5. Jesus answered, "Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6.Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit (John.3-56).
In the twenty-first chapter of "THE REVELATION OF ST. JOHN THE DEVINE" the Angel comes to him as a spirit and lifts him in to a great and high mountain. There he shows him the great city - in his view and description - the holy Jerusalem, that originated from heaven and God.
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Rev. 21-12,13,14).
The city had the appearance of an equilateral cube. This means that it is not going about a city in the usual sense having two dimensions but about the other spiritual world. It would be better if mathematitians were involved in the matter and presented us the mathematical model of a parallel universe on the basis of John's description.
The Base of the walls of the city are decorated with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation is decorated with jasper, the second with sapphire, the third with chalcedony, the fourth with emerald, the fifth with sardonyx, the sixth with carnelian, the seventh with chrysolite, the eighth with beryl, the ninth with topaz, the tenth with chrysoprase, the eleventh with hyacinth, and the twelfth with amethyst. The bases decorated with precious stones means that all of the universes are assigned for the Angels.
John gives a symbolic description of the holy city of Jerusalem as he had imagined it. I suppose that the angel showed to John's soul the parallel universe where the Lord God is dwelling and where the souls of all righteous people having undergone hardest tests in the struggle of becoming godly, sinless and the corresponding to religious rules. The wall of the city had 12 foundations and on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb are written. This means that all universe is appointed only for souls who will move into a parallel universe and become angels. I suppose that from the descriptions of St. John about the underworld it follows that the space surrounding us is composed of twelve universes. Bases decorated with precious stones mean that all universes are assigned only for the Angels. In these worlds there may inhabit the souls of people that belonged to different nationalities and beliefs. These universes seem to differ from each other in that one is thinner and the souls brought into these realms dwell in them according to their merits. And just that other world is most probably the heavenly kingdom of Jesus Christ. I understand that it sounds fantastic but I have no other explanation. The angels who stand at the symbolic doors mean that a control has been set so that each soul is was found only in his/her universe, which corresponds to his/her spiritual condition and which has no right to voluntarily move to a more subtle universe. The souls that will fall into these parallel worlds after God's Judgement will become Angels. They will also work hard to by deepening the feeling of love in themselves navigate through these worlds and strive to get to the most subtle world to unite with God and gain immortality. But I think there will be some souls that will - by gradually losing the feeling of love - drop to less subtle worlds and get to our gross material universe to rise again in the future and connect with God to acquire immortality.
I mentioned about the feeling of love with certain intent. Before I started writing my articles I felt such a deep grief that shocked me deeply. And when I compared it with a feeling of ordinary love between me and my family I realized that the souls of our rough world have a sense of love superficially. Unfortunately, so far there never has been suggested an idea that different people have different depth of the feeling of love, in any case I haven't read about it anywhere. There is no doubt that the depth of the potential feeling of love in one's heart is very immense and love can fill the human soul to such an extent that he/she will be able to easily go on self-sacrifice for the sake of another person. After all God of love Jesus Christ possessing boundless feeling of love sacrificed himself without the slightest hesitation to save mankind.
But the soul is immortal! "And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." It does not die; it does not decompose and therefore cannot die. They say that it is impossible to imagine a man without soul as a supreme intelligent being in the nature, and it's not possible to imagine the soul as the spiritual principle without immortality. But it will acquire immortality when it will in the higher realm of being permanently joins with God.
Does life have a meaning, and if so, what is it? Or life is just nonsense, meaningless, worthless natural process of birth, blossoming, ripening, wilting and death of a man like any other organic substance. As I understand it God has created the human body so that the Soul passing on from a parallel universe to our material world and entering into the human body would use that body during all the human life for its upbringing. Each person is obliged to develop it by himself. The souls having fallen into our material world differ from each other by the degrees of ability to love. From this it follows that according to the essence the person will have a respective appearance and will be born in the respective family. However, people do not realize it; they think that it is not the soul to have the paramount importance in here but the body, and that one should take care not about the soul as taught by the Lord but worry about the body during all the life as is usually done by people. What a sad mistake. As we know, the human self is not the body but the soul. Lord said to the future Apostle: "let the dead bury the dead, and you follow me". As you can see, he treats a living person as a dead one showing that the human body is nothing. After the death of a person's body goes into the ground and decomposes, the soul remains in the end, sooner or later goes the heavenly kingdom - the parallel universe. After the judgment the souls remaining in a parallel world will become Angels. Undoubtedly, the Angels found in a parallel universe are also working as the soul connected with the human body in our world. For example, when I look at the beauty of the surrounding flora it seems to me that the drawings of flowers were created by dead artists. A late close friend of mine was a wonderful artist and I am sure that his soul after God's judgment is somewhere in a parallel universe and will create beautiful works of art, which by the Angels will become materialized in our world in the form of flowers and trees and will bring joy to people. I'm sure the angels in the spiritual world not only create images of flowers and trees but also images of insects, animals and other works of art, which can then be materialized by some other angels in this world.
As I understand it, after death, the souls of all dead, as well as the ones fallen down from higher the subtle universes go to the lowest level of the heavenly kingdom and await for the trial of God, after which the worthy become Angels and move on to the relevant universe. The cowardly, false, abominable ones, murderers and fornicators, sorcerers and idolaters and all liars shall return to the material world and enter into the bodies of newborn babies to live for thousands of years of next successive ordinary lives until God's next judgment.

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind," said Albert Einstein. In his latest article, hereafter “THE OTHER WORLD OR DIVINE CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE" I made an attempt to unite religion with science. Religion without proofs and science without hope standing against each other for 250 years of uncertainly like enemies, having no power to overcome one another, and finally, in the near future, the science becoming religious and religion scientific, becoming combined, will open the door to the invisible world of God.
Chapter 22. HOLY TRINITY. And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. (Revelation.22-1). I read this first sentence and I had a question, what is the water of life that is hidden under the symbol of water. In (1In5.8) I found that this word means the human mind. So people, as well as the inhabitants of the Divine Universe – the angels derive their knowledge from the river of water of life that proceeds from the throne of God and the Holy Lamb.
Where God and the Holy Lamb are, there surely must be the Holy Spirit to complete the Trinity. It's not difficult to guess that the river of Water of Life originating from the throne is the very symbol of the Holy Spirit. Here the water of life is the base of all of the bases – the consciousness that possesses Divine knowledge. A wonderful symbolism! Holy Spirit gives the Knowledge of our Lord by the will of Jesus to those who ask for it - for nothing. Jesus Christ addressing his disciples said that when the Holy Spirit comes he will guide them into all truth: for he will not speak of Himself but he will say he will hear and will proclaim the future for them. "But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you everything and remind you all that I said to you" (John 14-26). However, as I noticed the vergers are almost interested in the gifts of the Holy Spirit any more after the initial Christians and they easily gradually turned away from Him. I wrote about this in my articles "The collapse of religion, eternal love" and "Christianity."
TREE OF LIFE. We found that the river water of life is the symbol of the Holy Spirit and now let’s try to decipher the symbols tree of life, and its leaves.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22-2).
As to some persons the symbol of the Tree of Life in Christianity was only a guide of divine grace, and as to some others - in its nature it had a protective effect against disease and death.
In "Revelation" of John the Tree of Life has an entirely different symbolism which differs radically from the well-known symbols and I find it difficult to give a full and unambiguous explanation. The Tree of Life appears to me to consist of twelve universes, or the universe consisting of twelve dimensional sub-levels. John presents these universes to us in the form of tree leaves, which, as he explains, is intended to heal the nations. In the parallel universe there are no humans, no peoples, only the Angels. Apparently, there exist many forms of Angels and in a figurative sense John refers to them as peoples. The Tree of Life yields fruit twelve times and in each month out of those twelve months she gives her own fruit. I make out from John's explanation with different symbols that in these universes the Angels are considered to be sick until they get twelve months education - absolute knowledge of the Holy Spirit and the relevant life experience. But John has no doubt as to the duration of the month, and me too - I naturally have no idea of that thing too. I percept it in the following way: During the conditional month, for instance Angels of the first level will after the God’s judgment live on the first level or universe and receiving the appropriate education and -training in a particular program - will move to the second level, and so on. That's it. So it is not everything that looks the way the servants of the church imagine. Our souls too, becoming angels in the world beyond, will learn and work as the angels worked in the 'Revelation' of St. John the Theologian. Now I understand the words of Jesus, "Be faithful up to death and I will give you the crown of life." Even knowing so little one may imagine well enough as to what the requirements will be to the very few human souls who are trying to get into this wonderful world of Divine knowledge and love. A human soul or an angel tries to climb the stairs of twelve levels of parallel spaces to the dwelling of the Creator.
Few persons in our world, where now mainly reigns indifference and hatred, deserve to get into the kingdom of heaven of the Holy Trinity. And what drove the human society to the present situation? Within two thousand years hundreds of thousands of churches were built on earth and the clergymen were involved in educating people on the Christian canons. They took on that job and as a result it is not religious society we have today but a sick one. Since the beginning of the last century some potential assassins are elected to be heads of all states in all countries throughout the world that in the past century killed more than 100 million people, and now are getting prepared for World War III whereafter some little quantity sick people will remain. All of this suggest that the higher clergy could not cope with their task, which they took over and as a result they got a sick society instead of a religious one. And this condition is not only in the Christianity but in the remaining three religions. I keep asking myself whether the situation can be changed, and I answer to myself - yes, because no matter what happens God loves us. But, unfortunately, people have gone too far to want to change something.
But God gave people the option to try themselves. Therefore, man is endowed with free will the other side of which is the responsibility for one's actions in one's life. And the subsequent life on earth depended on the decision and the choice of the people which was rejected by ungrateful humanity.
