What does the title mean? The usual comment that we hear, especially for men on the highway is asking someone how do I get from here to there? This is only after hours of driving around the country in a aimless way, while our wife tells us to stop and ask someone! lol been there done that!!
But this is something different. It is how something from far off, going to come to us? First off, we have alot of questions from this statement. Like, What is coming? From where?, When? How? and Who?
This is exactly what the christian should be focusing on in their studies and understanding of the Passages in Revelations 21-22. This is the picture that will be coming to us in a very methodical and perfect way. It is the economy(word used by Witness Lee for the ways of God) that will be brought to all his people of the world in the rule of God. This is word picture that we should see when we read the passages in Revelation. God has designed this way of eternity just as he did in the very beginning of time as the Garden of Eden scene we read with adam and eve.
This is the fullness of God in everything.
If we ‘see’ that the revelation in revelation 21-22 is that of Genesis 1-2,then we must see the same eternal things in both of them. What then should we do then, is to look at Revelations and see what it actually says and portrays as ‘our’ eternal life.
Revelation 21. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among the people, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them,
Revelation 21. 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
The What is God’s Kingdom, No death, no mourning,no crying or pain, nothing is left from the old world! This is all Great but it is the verse three that should make us shout for joy and excitement for things to come.
“Behold,the tabernacle of God is among the people, and He will dwell among them,and they shall be His people,and God will be among them”. Now this is Great, and our ultimate goal of eternal purpose. But, But notice something in this verse, notice on how it is said, notice it, because I believe that we have read it so fast, that we missed an important thing.
It’s backwards in how we have perceived it,It is as God is coming to us,not us coming to him. God tabernacling of God is among us,He will dwell(live) with us, God will be among us. Our perception on our desolate earth is for us to ‘Go'( Church)to Him, It is obvious that in the New Jerusalem that it actually says that there is not temple(this should be our first clue, that we are doing things wrong, we are to be striving for the end result of our destiny in God! We should be first realizing that it is God’s people in the world, not God’s people in the building, that people will ‘See’ Him!
It is the ‘What’ that I feel must happen first in the christian paradigm of the eternal purpose of God. This must be the first change in the paradigm of God’s people, it is the ‘seeing’ this that will make things change and change fast for the world and the christians!
God’s economy,or paradigm,New Jerusalem, or the Kingdom of God, whatever you want to call it, is coming into our man made world to save it, and bring into His own. This is the What. It is coming!
I will blog on the ‘How’ tomorrow.
