New Jerusalem: to God be the Glory Forever

The Lord Jesus declares, “I am the Alpha and the Omega*, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” (Rev. 22:13) Nothing is before Him and nothing comes after Him.

The Lord is the creator of everything. The Lord is also the goal of everything.
“In Him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or lordships or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and unto Him.” (Col. 1:16).
Out from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.” (Rom. 11:36).

New JerusalemNew Jerusalem is “out from Him.” It is “the city which has the foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God.” (Heb. 11:10) We were brought to New Jerusalem based on His redemption and by the impartation of His life into us in resurrection.

New Jerusalem is “unto Him” as His bride, His wife. The goal of all the preparation work, the goal of our growth, transformation, and glorification in the divine life, is to be unto Him and with Him for eternity! “To Him be the glory forever.”
