This is the day the LORD has made rejoice!!
We will be continuing in the study on New Jerusalem. But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. (Rev. 21:22-23) Lets look at Galatians 4:26 " But Jerusalem which is above is free which is the mother of us all.
Verse 23 But he who was of the bond woman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 24 which things are an allegory: but these are the two covenants; the one from Mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. 25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in the bondage of her children. 31So then, brethren we are not children bondwoman , but of the free.
Verse 26 (emphasis is mine) BUT JERUSALEM WHICH IS ABOVE IS FREE.....
The Jerusalem that is seen now will pass away. The Jerusalem that is above is eternal. This is the New Jerusalem. "But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple."
We are not under the Old Covenant but a new and better covenant with a better hope. We are just passing through. On our way to a free New Jerusalem. Amen.
That New Jerusalem lives in all of Gods children today. We are born again from flesh to Spirit. Amen?
We must stop looking at The earthly Jerusalem which is nothing more than a geographical area. Why? Because when CHRIST died a New Jerusalem was established. "JERUSALEM WHICH IS ABOVE IS FREE.....
The Kingdom of God truly is within us. The Kingdom of God, the tabernacle of God, will be with the saved nations of the earth. But the new Jerusalem is a living city that is located wherever the saint finds himself as he does the will of God. Christ Himself, the Lamb, is the Throne of the new Jerusalem. The Church, which is His Body, the Bride of the Lamb, is His fullness that fills all in all.
And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, Which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. (Ephesians 1:22,23) Amen!
Be Blessed in Jesus.
