Dwelling Place of God

Thus says YHWH:
"Heaven is My throne,
And earth is My footstool.
Where is the house that you will build Me?
And where is the place of My rest? ...
To this one will I gaze upon and regard with favor:
To the lowly, of a contrite spirit,
Who is trembling at My word."
~ Isaiah 66:1-2 (author)

... you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. ~ Ephesians 2:22 (NKJV)

Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God."
~ Revelation 21:2-3 (NKJV)

One of the most earnest endeavors any man undertakes is to build himself a house. He overlooks no detail to customize and prepare the dwelling place in which he will take his rest.

The jewel of Solomon's kingdom was a grand and glorious temple. God's glory came to dwell in it—but only to signify the ultimate dwelling place of God: His people. We partially fulfill that destiny in this era of the Holy Spirit's kingdom, for we are the temple of God's Spirit.

In the imminent kingdom of Jesus, the present spiritual reality will achieve fulfillment with physical reality. The Lord's people will finally be made one, as a beautifully adorned bride—His jewel—and she will be the blissful dwelling place of God.

Lord Jesus, please give Your people eyes for only You. Plesae wash us with Your Word and make us ready for Your arrival. Please unite our hearts with each other and make us one with each other, that we might be one with You.
Father, please send us our Beloved Bridegroom soon.

O my love, you are as beautiful as Tirzah,
Lovely as Jerusalem ...
Turn your eyes away from me,
For they have overcome me.
Song of Solomon 6:4-5 (NKJV)
