Oh To Be Wise Meditations

I see a wall of faith and Christ needs you to stand and hold your position in the Kingdom. Many have fallen away because of sin and the desires of the world. Also many have died as faithful servants and have gone on to be with the Lord. We who remain must pick up the mantle and hold up the breach that comes in on our families, communities, and in our churches. It is amazing grace that God uses mere men and women to build up his Kingdom here on earth. Our faith is made out of the spiritual rock petros, and upon this rock Christ said he would build his church; and the gates of hell would not prevail against it. So then, Gentiles are not foreigners or strangers any longer; they are now citizens together with God's people and members of the family of God. Built upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, the cornerstone being Christ Jesus himself. He is the one who holds the whole building together and makes it grow into a sacred temple dedicated to the Lord. In union with him you too are being built together with all the others into a place where God lives through his Spirit. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to the family of faith. Hold your ground where you are, the Kingdom of Heaven has come and is expanding throughout all the earth. Soon the New Jerusalem, which is also called the Tabernacle of God, the Holy City, the City of God, the Celestial City, the City Foursquare, and Heavenly Jerusalem, will literally come from heaven to earth! The capital of the universe will be here on earth, God and humanity together forever, this is too lofty to understand. Bear with me alittle longer. When the final rebellion against God has been destroyed, and Satan has received his just punishment, an eternity in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:7–10.) The Great White Throne Judgment has taken place, and mankind has been judged (Revelation 20:11–15). In Revelation 21:1 God does a complete make-over of heaven and earth (Isaiah 65:17; 2 Peter 3:12–13). This is when God reveals the New Jerusalem. John sees a glimpse of it in his vision: “The Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband” (Revelation 21:2). This is the city that Abraham looked for in faith (Hebrews 11:10). It is the place where God will dwell with His people forever (Revelation 21:3). Inhabitants of this celestial city will have all tears wiped away (Revelation 21:4). Who are the residents of the New Jerusalem? The Father and the Lamb are there (Revelation 21:22). Angels are at the gates (verse 12). But the city will be filled with God’s redeemed children. If you believe that Jesus, the Son of God, died and rose again and have asked God to save you by His grace, then you are a citizen of the New Jerusalem. “God raised you up with Christ and seated you with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). Stand up tall in your faith! We are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. Meditate Ps. 125:1-2
