In the Triune God

Revelation 21:16 describes New Jerusalem saying, “the length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.” New Jerusalem is a cube, the eternal holy of holies. This is not a physical holy of holies, “for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple” (Revelation 21:22). This temple is only the holy of holies because everything related to the outer court and the holy place has been fully accomplished by Christ and fully applied to God’s chosen people.

To be in New Jerusalem is to be in the holy of holies and in the Triune God. This will not be something new that will happen suddenly in the future. Our being in the Triune God began with the death and resurrection of Christ. In John 14:20, speaking about His resurrection, Jesus said, “In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” Likewise, in His prayer in John 17, He prayed for our being in Himself and in the Father (v. 21). He prayed this for the present time, because He prayed this “that the world may believe that You have sent Me.”

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are our entrance (portrayed by the gates of pearl) into the Triune God and into New Jerusalem. These are not two separate entrances. New Jerusalem is a corporate humanity in the Triune God. It is the consummation of John 14:20. As we abide in the Lord so that He may abide in us (John 15:4), we are in the Triune God and in the present reality of New Jerusalem.

  1. Our being in the New Jerusalem will not be an instant fact happening sometime in the future. It already started out of the death and resurrection of the Lord. Praise the Lord! Enjoyed your sharing very much. Oh, Lord, thank you for our being in You! Thank you for our being in the present reality of the New Jerusalem!
