Who will walk in the light of the city?


"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 honor into it." Verse 24.
NOTE-This city, the New Jerusalem, will be for all the nations of the saved; and yet all who enter
therein will enter through gates on which are written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel, from which it
is evident that all who are saved will belong to Israel. The name Israel will be perpetuated in the new earth
state, and very appropriately so, because of its meaning. All who share in that future home of the saved will
be overcomers-princes and prevails with God. See Rev. 3:12; 21:7. Christ recognized this division of the
saved into twelve nations, in selecting His apostles. He chose twelve. He recognized it again when to the
twelve He said: "You which have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the
throne of His glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel!' Matt. 19:28.
And the apostles, after Christ's resurrection and ascension, themselves recognized it, when, to fill the place
of Judas, who fell, they appointed another, in order to preserve the proper number, twelve.
