Separating Truth from Religious Behaviours and Rituals (Part One)

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation].Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. For My yoke is easy [to bear] and My burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30 (AMP)

Grace is a rest!

636Many sincere believers base their lives upon their own efforts to achieve faith and the results of faith. Rather than resting in and enjoying the freedom of Christ’s finished work on their behalf (i.e. who they have become in Christ, who He is to them, and their vast, grand, already established inheritance in Him), simply trusting in his detailed care, provision, and love (1 Peter 5:7), they spend their time striving to produce results and manufacture the promises in Scripture. However, God wants us to get to a place where our burdens are completely lifted, and where there is no pressure for our own efforts to ‘produce’ or ‘manifest’ anything. Believer, you have uncompromised freedom in Christ, and are well able to simply enjoy and embrace the unshakable, secure realities of being ‘in Christ’ – sharing in all that He is and has (Romans 8:17). Faith, grace, blessings, fruits – absolutely everything in the Christian faith – is a rest. Galatians 5:1 (KJV) states that as believers we can “stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

If what you are experiencing or doing in your grace walk doesn’t actually – in essence – feel like grace, but rather something you have to maintain and sustain with your efforts – no matter how Christian those efforts feel – then that is because what you are experiencing and doing isn’t grace, but a response to a legalistic belief or teaching that has impacted your understanding and awareness. Empty religious teachings feel burdensome, wearying, and provide no deep-seated peace. However, Jesus desires that you be free from all burdens and cares, so that you may discover the ‘rest, renewal, and blessed quiet’ of soul that is given freely in Him. You see, the essence of grace is honey-sweetness, 637.jpggoodness, and delight (Psalm 119:103; Psalm 34:8; Psalm 94:19; Isaiah 58:14; Psalm 21:2; Psalm 37:4). When you are under grace, there is an effortless, uplifting, revitalizing sense of ease, rest, and well-being.

The fruits of grace are therefore rest, refreshing, ease, encouragement, comfort, uplifting, total well-being, joy, and security – the list goes on and on! Grace encourages us that we are in a total, perfect, fortifying union with the Godhead, well able to rest in their love and protection, tasting of their benefits and blessings freely (1 Corinthians 6:17). I love the way that The Message Bible translates Matthew 11:28-30:

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (MSG)

Believer, you were designed to live ‘freely and lightly’. The rhythms of grace are ‘unforced’, and certainly are not ‘heavy’ or ‘ill-fitting’! Religious bondage feels burdensome, heavy, ill-fitting, uncomfortable, and pressing. However, grace is a natural enjoyment of abundant life in Christ! (John 10:10). The focus of grace is Christ and His faithfulness, and not us and our works of faith. The essence of religious burdens is pressure and demand, but the essence of grace is overwhelming supply, because grace 638.jpgfocuses on Jesus and your already established reality of blessings in Him! Religion begins with self-sufficiency and lack, but grace begins with all-sufficient abundance in Christ and ushers in all the glories, beauties, and blessings of His finished work! Grace is the essence of success!

Therefore, if you feel you ‘have’ to do something to experience and enjoy manifest blessings, and that ‘something’ feels like an obligation or a demand, then it is a religious burden and not of grace. The reason it feels like hard (maybe even impossible) work is because of the resonance of Jesus’ freedom within your heart: you were created to live in the unforced rhythms of grace!

Sweet Communion with Jesus

Ephesians 5:2 (KJV)

“And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

The way for a Christian to walk is in love, and I don’t mean our love for God, but His love for us. We no longer have to live from our limited resources and unreliable emotions. Rather, we can live in sweet communion with the love and grace of Jesus, allowing our spiritual lives to be articulated and expressed through enjoying and relying upon God’s personal love for us. As we walk in an awareness of God’s love, we begin to walk in emotional well-being, both experiencing and manifesting the sweet-smelling blessings of His grace: the fruits of Christ’s resurrection, and our inclusion in that. Galatians 5:6 communicates to us that ‘faith worketh by love’ (KJV). In other words, walking in the Spirit is simply walking in a revelation of God’s special love towards us (Romans 8:4 Galatians 5:25). Likewise, 1 John 4:16 declares, “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” (KJV)

As we are conscious of the love of Jesus, setting our minds on this love, we enjoy and experience the spiritual realities of our inheritance in Christ (Romans 8:5; Colossians 3:1). The power source of our lives, which causes God’s faith, blessings, and glory to manifest effortlessly both to us and through us, is God’s love.  Ephesians 3:19 writes that our goal as believers should be to ‘know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.’ (KJV). As we know the love of God towards us, we walk in the sweet-smelling gifts and treats of our inheritance in Christ – the ‘sweet’ spot which is characterised by ease, blessing, and manifest power and glory. In this place of being loved by God, the power of God comes alive for us, and we discover even bitter trials that would naturally overcome us, are defeated before us and transformed into total and utter sweetness. Like Samson, when we know the love of God, our lives will become a declaration that, “… Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness.” (Judges 14:14; KJV), because the love of Jesus in all of its transformative creativity and mighty power is both sweeter than honey and stronger than a lion (Judges 14:18). The love of God is therefore the context of our conversation and communion with Jesus – it is the matter and flow of the spiritual realm.

The love of God brings substance, sense, and context to all the blessings and giftings of our faith – an example of this is prophecy. 1 Corinthians 14:3 describes prophecy as such: ‘But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them.’ (NLT). Prophecy is therefore giving a voice to the power, insight, and intimacy of God’s love. Song of Solomon 5:16 (RSV) gives further context to the voice of prophecy: “His speech is most sweet, and he is altogether desirable. This is my beloved and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem”. – Prophecy is therefore a beautiful, articulate way to enjoy our sweet communion with Jesus in the love of God, as it is listening to the voice of your beloved friend and hearing of his sweet, desirable blessings for you! The glory, power, and wisdom of God is expressed in fullness in the sweet-smelling love of God. As we taste and enjoy the delicious goodness of this love in the revelation of Jesus Christ, God’s power, glory, and wisdom is continually magnified and manifested through our lives (Psalm 34:3,8).

 

Remaining Calm and Composed in Christ

Scripture declares that we are destined to reign in life through the abundance of grace and the freely given gift of righteousness (Romans 5:17). The Greek word for ‘reign’ used in 43.jpgScripture means to ‘exercise the highest influence; exercise kingly authority’ over a situation. In other words, the revelation of our righteousness in Jesus and the grace we have been gifted with in Him will cause us to walk in royal authority and confidence, knowing that every situation and circumstance is destined to conform to God’s blessings. As you rest in the Gospel of grace and your inheritance in Christ, your situation is destined to come under your feet (Hebrews 10:12-14), you are destined to reign above it and remain on top of things (Deuteronomy 28:13), so that you will see all things working together for your own, personal good (Romans 8:28). God is so creative that he can completely transform any and every bad circumstance so that it ends up working for your favor.

Child of God, as you walk in a relational awareness of God’s grace and your righteousness in Him, not only are you destined to see complete restoration in your circumstances (Joel 2:25-26), you will also see what Romans 5:17 calls God’s ‘MUCH MORE’ restoration – restoration that is over and above what circumstance calls for, over and above what you expect or deserve, over and above what you have experienced before; even over and above what you could ask, think or imagine (Isaiah 61:7; Job 42:10; Ephesians 3:20). In fact, you are destined to experience such an overload of restorative, sweet, favor-filled blessings that Scripture declares that the shame, insecurities, and anxieties of the past will be completely forgotten (Ezekiel 39:26; Isaiah 54:4). It doesn’t matter what you’re going through, what you’ve been through, or how long you have been stuck there, God is willing and able to bless you in such magnitude (according to His grace and not according to your efforts, how much you deserve it, or whose ‘fault’ the situation was), so that those things will have NO effect on you anymore and no trauma, sorrow, regret, or pain attached to them. Instead, rejoicing will have swallowed up sorrow, and beauty will remain in place of 44.jpgashes (Isaiah 61:3). The promises of God are able to speak personally into each situation in your life. For every contradiction, concern, or trial, there is a promise of God found in Scripture and given to us freely in Christ, so that not only you, but your whole family, entire household and all of its appliances and rooms, can be furnished fully with the blessings, security and provision of Scripture (2 Corinthians 1:20; Psalm 122:7; Jeremiah 33:6; Deuteronomy 28:1-13).

Believe it or not, it gets even better than this. Scripture declares that as you continue to walk in the revelation of ‘the abundance of God’s grace’, and your ‘free gift of righteousness in Him’, you are going to grow in such an understanding of this that:

“He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee” – Job 5:19 (KJV)

In Scripture, the number seven always points towards completion and perfection. In other words, you can get to a place in your walk with Jesus where you have such a full and complete revelation of God’s grace, and your inheritance in Him, that your life will be smooth and trouble-free forever more, with not a hint of evil, trouble, or contradiction. As we are growing in our understandings and revelations, sometimes trials and contradictions come up against us. We can be confident that God is delivering us, and will deliver us every time, as Job 5:19 in Scripture says. However, God’s intent is for us is that we would always experience an evil-free, curse-free existence, abounding in blessings! You have been redeemed from EVERY curse, to EVERY blessing imaginable (Galatians 3:13-45.jpg14). This is because your righteousness in Christ is both a defensive weapon to protect you from harm, and an offensive weapon to cause curses and evil to flee.  2 Corinthians 6:7 (KJV) declares: “By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,”

Spiritually, the righteousness of God is the substance of light, and it fortifies us from darkness, the works of the enemy (see John 10:10), and all contradictions. Our righteousness in Christ is a powerful revelation: Psalm 37:8 (KJV) declares that God will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and Psalm 91:11 (KJV) says that those who know they are righteous sow light wherever they go. Let’s take a look at what Isaiah 58:8,11 says about God’s light as our protection:

“Then shall your light break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard…And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.” (KJV)

This verse declares that the revelation of our righteousness in Christ will go ahead of us into each circumstance, making the path smooth and ushering in God’s provision blessings! It will also completely cover our past, so that no matter what mistakes we have made, no darkness, punishment, guilt, condemnation, or fear can come upon us (see Romans 8:1). This is what a believer looks like when they know that they have the free gift of righteousness and the abundance of grace! They are completely free, and totally fortified in God’s unconditional, irrevocable blessings! (Galatians 5:1). This is why John 1:5 (AMP) comments that the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot find or 46.jpgcomprehend it!

The glory and beauty of these grace-truths make us bold in the reality that we have the ability, power, and security to be calm in the midst of opposition, knowing that no harm shall come near us or our loved ones (Psalm 91:10), and that God’s favor surrounds us as a shield so that we can live a smooth life of uninterrupted blessings, health, peace, and security (Psalm 5:12). Luke 10:19 boldly declares: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (KJV) – Behold these truths, beloved! They are freely yours through the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness!

Rested Abundance

“You must obey God’s law about the Sabbath
and not do what pleases yourselves on that holy day.
You should call the Sabbath a joyful day
and honor it as the Lord’s holy day.
You should honor it by not doing whatever you please
nor saying whatever you please on that day.
Then you will find joy in the Lord,
and I will carry you to the high places above the earth.
I will let you eat the crops of the land your ancestor Jacob had.”
The Lord has said these things.” – Isaiah 58:13-14 (NCV)

The Sabbath throughout scripture is a shadow of Jesus Christ. In Christ we discover a true, abiding Sabbath rest as the Gospel revelation of who we are in him, who he is to us, and who he is for us ushers us into the eternal realm of God’s all-sufficiency which brings delight and refreshing. As we enjoy the finished work of Jesus Christ, we enter into the Sabbath realm of faith, where God has completed all that needs to be finished, worked out, and sorted in our lives. In Christ, God has done it all, and He desires that we simply recognise this, so that we can enjoy the manifest blessings of his heart! God longs for His people enjoy the benefits and blessings of resting and trusting in the all-sufficiency of Christ within the New Covenant. This joyous living entails recognising that you are in a perfected, righteous union with the Godhead, having everything that they are and have – everything that is true of them, is true of you, and everything that is not true of them, is no longer true of you. You are not a dirty rotten sinner, you are the dearly beloved of God, and a wonderful expression of his being! 2 Corinthians 5:21 declares that God ‘made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him’.

Understanding the New Covenant of God’s gracious, supply-filled rest effortlessly and completely transforms our language. As we recognise that God’s way of prosperity and victory is to enjoy the fulfilment and manifest arrival of our salvation in Christ, we begin to be confident in our God rather than in ourselves! We no longer live ‘doing whatever we please’ out of a false, independent, limited sense of self. Instead, we will ‘find joy in the Lord’ who has ‘carried us to the high places of the earth’, and will continue to do so as we trust and believe in His finished work! God is a good Daddy and he wants to manifest success and influence throughout our lives, saturating everything in our world with his abundant unmerited favour! Through placing our trust in the all-sufficiency of Christ, will feast on his blessings which follow us everywhere we go, and discover that as we do we no longer speak, think, and function out of a sense of deficiency (‘nor saying whatever you please on that day’). We will speak God’s words of faith, which release the power and life of heaven into our circumstances!

As Hebrews 4:3, 9-10 (NKJV) articulates: ‘we who have believed do enter that rest…there remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For He who has entered His rest himself also ceased from his works as God did from His’. So beloved of God, relax, recline, and receive the blessings of the New Covenant. No matter what you are facing today, there remains the powerful, wonder-working word of grace, spoken by the Father and articulated in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. This word effortlessly transports us into the realm of rest and abundance, in which God has already provided for you. The revelation of faith has the power to bring you abundance and blessing, carrying you to the high places of this earth! You are wired for success through ceasing from your own works, to enjoy the devoted doting of the Godhead through Jesus Christ!

Safe, Protected, Healed, and Whole

Psalm 91:10

“There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling” (KJV)

As we read the calming, soothing verses of Psalm 91, we discover that faith is an adventure of exploring and resting in the goodness of God and the limitless reaches of his grace in every day, practical living. God is the perfect Daddy who desires his children to be prosperous, secure, healthy, healed, and whole in every way. He loves for us to feel cosy and comfortable around him – to know and experience his personalised, detailed love for each of us on a daily basis. Psalm 91:1 encourages us that as we ‘dwell in the secret place of the Most High’, we will ‘abide under his shadow’. This speaks of leaning upon and relying on God’s faithful provision and practical, unconquerable goodness each day. It speaks of intimacy and trust which produces consistent safety and security in our lives, and in the lives of our family members. As Psalm 91:10 articulates, NO evil will befall us, and NO plague will come near our homes – no means no! In Christ, our homes are peace-filled, disease-free, security-abundant spaces!

1 John 4:15-16 is the key to understanding what it means to abide under God’s shadow. John declares that as we recognise the authority and grace of Jesus Christ, we begin to abide in God, because the message of grace floods our heart with faith and hope so that we can recognise experientially that God is love. Recognising that God is love effortlessly causes us to lean on and depend upon him more and more, producing all of heaven’s blessings, protection, and security throughout our lives. As we continue to hear the good news of the Gospel, our hearts are filled with faith and trust in our heavenly Father, and we naturally abide under the ‘shadow’ of Jesus’ Almighty finished work on our behalf. God’s love woos and convinces us to trust him! As Romans 10:17 states, the key to wonder-working, secure faith is simply through hearing the good news of Christ. As we continually hear the good news of the Gospel our minds become fixed on the realities of heaven, and walking in the spirit becomes our natural rhythm and our consistent mode of existence. The finished work of Jesus Christ is enough to protect you and your home from any and every evil, sickness, and disease! You do not have to worry about the latest news reports. Simply recline in God’s goodness, enjoy his benefits and blessings, and enjoy the Disney-world of joy and fun that is the authentic Gospel of grace, peace and love!

Isaiah also writes in Isaiah 55:3 that life and success comes through hearing the message of God’s love. It is always our dependence upon the good news message that leads to us naturally sinking into the rhythms of God and walking in the Spirit, who always brings life and safeguards us from all harm. Isaiah writes: ‘Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David’ (55:3 KJV). We are to continue to hear new covenant messages of grace and life. As we do, we will automatically be walking under the correct ‘shadow’ or image of God. Hearing the good news will always produce results, as God always confirms his word with signs and wonders! (Mark 16:20). Your life will become a living testimony that Jesus keeps us safe, protected, healed, and whole!

Not of this World

John 18:36

‘Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.’ (KJV)

When you became a believer, a whole new dimension of living opened up to you, and you inherited the Kingdom of heaven. This Kingdom has for centuries inspired fairytale and fantasy with its ‘happily ever afters’, and ‘dreams come true’. It is a kingdom full of wonderstruck royalty and bliss-filled happiness. A kingdom where magic exists! This Kingdom is heaven on earth in the here and now, and the gateway to experiencing its tangible realities is Christ’s finished work. Christ functions as a secret doorway – as you lean, depend, and rely on his love, revealed in the Gospel message, you will discover yourself stumbling through this Christ-door, and into the Disneyland park of heaven, the heart-realm of inspiration, having ears that hear and eyes that see this invisible reality!  As what is unseen becomes seen and known in your understanding through the revelation of Christ, the power of this new dimension dances into your physical world like a babbling brook, and influences the natural world with its living inspiration, exotic glory-vitality, and flourishing life! Your senses will begin to engage in and resonate with this divine heavenly vacation-park, which is open all hours, and completely free to enjoy!

Jesus transforms an ordinary world into a parade of heaven’s patterns. Colossians articulates that Jesus has completely de-coded the mystery of the human race, revealing to us the life of our design, the quality of life the Godhead always dreamt we would experience, through revealing to us this new kingdom and its culture:  ‘Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son’ (Col. 1:13 KJV). At one time, you were a tree of the knowledge of good and evil, plugged into man’s best efforts and ideals, grounded in natural circumstance, and only able to perceive anything through the darkened understanding of the world’s basic principles and rules. But now, you are a flourishing tree of life, planted into this new, deeper-magic dimension of God’s heart through the finished work of Jesus Christ, and blossoming in resurrection-revelations. You were plugged into the body of Christ in his death, and vitally joined in a Siamese union with his heart, so that the rhythm of your life now beats to his trillion-volt bliss! You were translated into heaven’s dimension so that you can live by heaven’s principles, and manifest heaven’s wonders, no longer dictated by the natural rules and regulations of the world.

As a result, you have the Godhead’s quality of life, which throughout the Gospel of John is named ‘eternal life’. Life without beginning or end. Life unhindered and overflowing with vitality and limitless goodness. You no longer have to be afraid of the ‘rules’ of this world, because you are not simply a natural creature anymore. You are plugged into the supernatural, heavenly Source of Christ’s heart and imagination, and he is articulating his all-sufficient life throughout your natural world. This life is care-free in God’s tender care, and does not need to defend itself – the Gospel is the defender, and it produces wonder-working, grave-breaking, resurrection-ready power.

How Do I Experience the Manifest Glory?

By Paige Hunt

One of the most glorious aspects of our inheritance in Christ is that we can continuously experience the tangible glory of God, at all times, in spite of our behavior. Many in Christianity are waiting for the next big meeting, or for a personal encounter with ‘Mr. prophet of God’ or ‘apostle so-and-so’ to be knocked off their feet by a ‘new wave of glory’. This is what The Bible names ‘zeal without knowledge’ (Proverbs 19:2). It is misdirected passion! – You don’t have to wait for a special event to experience the manifest glory of Jesus, when it is your constant inheritance. God desires for you, right now, in the ordinariness of life, to live within His manifest glory!

First thing’s first, the glory of God is not some weird, unknowable aspect of God. It is not like God is wearing a trench coat, and when you please him enough he pulls out his strange party trick from his secret inside pocket –taa-daa the glory! No, the glory of God is simple, and it is His desire that you live within that manifest experience, which is the culture of heaven (Luke 17:21). 49The glory is God is this: his goodness. God Himself defines it that way for us in Exodus, when Moses, like many of us, asked: “SHOW ME YOUR GLORY!”. God responds as an encouraging Papa, and says ‘I will cause all my goodness to pass before you” (Exodus 33:19). Don’t let anyone distract you from the simplicity of the Gospel! (2 Corinthians 11:3)

In order to experience the glory all of the time, you don’t have to press in – just trust that Jesus loves you, that He is Papa, and that He left you ‘the glorious riches of His grace’ (Ephesians 3:16). Trust in the love of God. He isn’t keeping an obscure secret from you – He shares everything freely with His children, and His glory is simply His goodness. It is practical, and leads to tangible, outward manifestations of His kindness and provision. It is a Daddy interacting with His children – God is pure love, and His glory is not some abstract code to be deciphered. Like any part of our inheritance, to live in the manifest experience of this, which I shall call ‘a love cuddle’, you simply have to trust the nature of God and our inheritance in Jesus.  47The Bible calls this ‘knowing and believing  the love God has for us’ (1 John 4:16) – believing is simply receiving the good news of what Christ has already done for us, until our minds are filled with the truth that our heart echoes! (Romans 5:17; Philippians 4:8; Romans 12:2). Fill your mind with resources on the grace and goodness of Jesus, in ways that you enjoy, and watch as you see His love showing up in multi-faceted ways in your life. That includes dreams, and all manner of creative miracles – each a creative explosion of His goodness, in ways tailored to suit our unique personalities. Daddy loves to show up and show off in His love for us! (Mark 16:17-18).45

In the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the heavens were torn open like a great piñata, and every spiritual goodie was poured out upon us – the mysteries of heaven were lavished upon us. God held nothing back! – We have a continuously flowing river of God’s life inside of us, that wells up inside of us every time we believe/rest/rely on the all-sufficiency of Jesus’s love and grace. As we enjoy what Jesus has already accomplished for us, we are refreshed and encouraged in this river of God’s life! (John 4:14; Revelation 22:1; Ezekiel 47:5). We exist in this very river of God’s life! Not only this, but the goodness of God’s creative miracles is unparalleled in the entire world. This is why throughout the Bible, we encounter God’s people being able to understand visions and dreams that the world’s magicians cannot. (Genesis 41:15; Daniel 1:20). You are filled to overflowing with the tangible, manifest glory of Jesus. You don’t need to be hungry for the next revelation, when Jesus Christ is the alpha and the omega (Revelation 22:13) – His cross and resurrection is the ever-satisfying feast (Isaiah 55:1; Jeremiah 31:4; Psalm 36:8; Psalm 23). 46Jesus speaks to you a more personalized and satisfying love than anything in this world. His love is the glory. As you begin to understand the scope of His love for you, you realize that in Christ ‘it is a whole new world’ – a superior reality! (2 Corinthians 5:17) . His love is heaven on earth.

In Ephesians 3:18, God’s love is described with the dimensions of a cube (Ephesians 3:18). This highlights a beautiful truth to us, because the dimensions of the ‘holy of holies’ (the holiest place on earth), and the ‘holy city’ in Revelation, are both given the dimensions of a cube. – All of these things are the love of God! As we enjoy the love of Jesus, we are in the holy of holies and the ‘New Jerusalem’, because it is God’s love and goodness which is His glory. We experience heaven on earth as we enjoy God’s love (Revelation 21:2-3).
