The Arrangement of the New People of God 1 Pertaining to the Third State after the Model of the Heavenly Jerusalem

Paul the Apostle. 2"Just as the body is one and has many members, all the members of the body, although they are many, are one body. It is the same with Christ. For a body is not one member but many. if the foot were to say: Since I am not a hand I do not belong to the body, it would not therefore not be a part of the body. And if the ear were to say: Because I am not an eye I do not belong to the body, it would not therefore not be a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? if the whole body were hearing, where would the power of smell be? God put the members, each of them, into the body on purpose. If they all were one member, where would the body be? So there are indeed many members, but one body" ( 1 Cor. 12:14-20).

John the Evangelist. "I, John, saw a door open in heaven and behold a throne was placed there. Around the throne and at its very center were four animals filled with eyes before and behind. The first animal was like a lion, the second animal like a calf, the third animal had a face like a man, and the fourth animal was like a flying eagle" ( Apoc. 4:1-7). "Grace is given to each of us according to the measure of the gift of Christ. And hence he has said: 'Ascending on high he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men' ( Ps. 67:19). He gave to some the gift to be Apostles, some to be Prophets, some to be Evangelists, others to be pastors and doctors, for the fulfillment of the saints in their ministry in the building up of the Body of Christ, until we all come together into the unity of faith and the recognition of the Son of God, into the perfect man, into the measure of the maturity of Christ" ( Eph. 4:7-13).
