In Isaiah 62: verses 1-7 God said Jerusalem was to be; "a crown of glory and a royal diadem in the hand of the Lord. No more forsaken… no more to be called desolate."
Rather, Isaiah 62 proclaims; “thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married."
It seems that this is so important to the Lord that He has determined to put watchmen on the walls to insure His word, here, will be performed….. listen to what He sais in verses 6 & 7:
“I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”
So, as we read on we see; Zion and Jerusalem are foreordained by God to have the righteousness thereof go forth AS A LIGHT and...AS A LAMP, IN THE EARTH. Zion and Jerusalem are to become a crown of glory and a royal diadem in the hand of the Lord. The Gentiles are to see this righteousness and all Kings this glory….And God had determined that He would call this Zion and Jerusalem by a NEW NAME.
Who, then, is this; “Zion” and this; “Jerusalem”? They are, by the revelation of the Holy Spirit, metaphors which God has used to hide the MYSTERY of His Kingdom from those without eyes to see or ears to hear?
Did not Jesus say to Christians: “let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify the Father which is in heaven?
Are we Christians not just; ...."living stones” being builded into His dwelling place"
Is not His dwelling place……or Tabernacle, within US?
We are; Dwelling places within the City of God….His “New” Jerusalem……the city He is building, without hands …….the City of God that we read about in Ephesians 2… and Revelations 21…
How long oH Lord….when is this to be actually manifest in the earth…..?
Hold steady people of God for God has purposed to have a people who will be governed by Him willingly from the heart. A people who will, at all costs, allow His righteousness to be worked by the Holy Spirit in them, until all of these things, fully, come to pass. God will have a people who will choose to allow Him to have complete dominion within their hearts. This is the place within us where the King has dominion ……This…is “The Kingdom of God” which Jesus said not to look for, here or there……. for it is……within us.
Our souls and flesh were as a wilderness, before Christ. Our souls and flesh were as a dry, thirsty and desolate land. But.. NOW " Jesus said;..out of your inner most being will flow; rivers of living water..."
The real “Beulah land” is not some day in heaven. For the Kingdom of Heaven is "at hand"!!
