The Sea of Glass that was Revealed to the Author of the Revelations of the Bible: Know More About It !
The last book of the Bible is the mysterious book of the Revelations. This book was written by the youngest disciple of Jesus Christ. What he describes in the book is about the visions that he had while he spent his time as a lonely prisoner in one of the islands called Patmos. The book is perhaps considered as the most mysterious books of the Bible about which Christian scholars have been debating for centuries.
I too have read this book many times and was laboring hard to know more about many of those visions about which St.John had written.
I was too puzzled to know more about the 'Sea of Glass' about which John wrote twice in his book:
" Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.
In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back." [Revelations 4:6]
"And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God" [Revelation 15:2]
And what is this, this sea of glass ?
I searched the internet to know what knowledgeable scholars say about it. And I got some answers like this:
[Click this link to read one such opinion here!] But the author obviously does not have a clear answer!
But fortunately, I have found the answer.
Again through a Book of Revelation now known as the Fifth Epochal Revelation (FER) to mankind. Just as some celestial beings were responsible for showing the visions to St.John some 2000 years ago, this time too, some celestial beings had been responsible to make us understand these things.
The new book of revealed knowledge is my favorite book of life guidance now, about which I had written many times in my earlier blogs.
Now let us see, what my favorite book tells us about the sea of glass. Let me reproduce some of the quotations from this book for you:
" John the Revelator saw a vision of the arrival of a class of advancing mortals from the seventh mansion world to their first heaven, the glories of Jerusem. He recorded: “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire; and those who had gained the victory over the beast that was originally in them and over the image that persisted through the mansion worlds and finally over the last mark and trace, standing on the sea of glass, having the harps of God, and singing the song of deliverance from mortal fear and death.” (Perfected space communication is to be had on all these worlds; and your anywhere reception of such communications is made possible by carrying the “harp of God,” a morontia contrivance compensating for the inability to directly adjust the immature morontia sensory mechanism to the reception of space communications.) [The Urantia Book 47:10.2]
" The Edentia sea of glass is one enormous circular crystal about one hundred miles in circumference and about thirty miles in depth. This magnificent crystal serves as the receiving field for all transport seraphim and other beings arriving from points outside the sphere; such a sea of glass greatly facilitates the landing of transport seraphim.
A crystal field on this order is found on almost all architectural worlds; and it serves many purposes aside from its decorative value, being utilized for portraying superuniverse reflectivity to assembled groups and as a factor in the energy-transformation technique for modifying the currents of space and for adapting other incoming physical-energy streams." [ The Urantia Book 43:1.10-11 ]
" As you ascend the mansion worlds one by one, they become more crowded with the morontia activities of advancing survivors. As you go forward, you will recognize more and more of the Jerusem features added to the mansion worlds. The sea of glass makes its appearance on the second mansonia." [The Urantia Book 47:4.3]
Perhaps you felt some difficulty in understanding some new words in the above quoted passages. Of course, they are new revelations and one can know and understand those new revealed names and words by learning and reading this great book of revelation that mankind has ever got.
And my attempt is to make this book known to those who are desirous of knowing those knowledge.
Does such a desire got initiated in your mind ?
