The new temple of God is our body filled with the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 3:16; 6:19); the new cities of God are those made righteous through the blood to be filled with God’s presence; in a new state of being in Christ as new nation: abiding in Christ and Christ in you; His glory within you and His fire around you.
“Her salvation is as a burning torch…You shall be called by a new name…no more desolate or forsaken…go through the gates*…They shall be called The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD; and you shall be called Sought Out, a city not forsaken” Isaiah 62:1-12
[*into Christ and the King of glory comes in your opened gates “Jesus is The Door,” the old of Adam goes out, never to come back; behold, the new comes: Christ in you]
Give thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of Light of Christ. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13).
Those who CONQUER will have the one pillar of the temple, Christ Jesus, set in them, the Vine connecting heaven and earth within; a new place where the “new heaven and new earth” of Christ’s Kingdom abides in you as we live in the world but not OF it. Never shall He go out of you and He writes on you the name of His God, and the name of the city of His God: the new city that comes down from God out of heaven and His new name: Christ in you, a new name (Revelation 2:17; 3:12-13).
God does for us what we could NEVER do for ourselves.
Jesus was sent by our Father, died, buried, resurrected, ascended and glorified to be perfectly one with our God, making Him Lord of lords and King of kings, and we who receive and carry Christ, carry His glory on earth, become as He is in the world: light of the world, first fruit kind (James 1:18), first born (Romans 8:29) kings, priests, sons, brides; as His glory fills our body temple (Romans 8:30); the mind of Christ in our heart: what we think in our heart we become; what we behold we become: we behold his glory and are changed from glory to glory IN CHRIST (2 Cor 3:18), in His presence which is all-pervading (Psalm 139:7-12) all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere present.
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light” Ephesians 5:14; Romans 13:11-14
“The glory which thou has given me I have given to them” John 17:22
We become present in His Presence in the present; the present of all presents! the free gift of grace and glory. The Glorious Majesty becomes manifest in us as we receive the Love of Christ to be filled with ALL the fullness of God to work in and through us superabundantly greater than we could ever ask or think. We become the Good News carriers (Acts 10:34-48). We carry the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ (2 Cor 4:4b).
We do not follow cleverly devised myths as we KNOW the POWER and coming of Our Lord Jesus THE Christ, and eyewitnesses of HIS MAJESTY…we hear His voice, for we have been with Him on His holy mountain. And we have the PROPHETIC WORDS OF JESUS made more sure. We pay attention to THE WORD OF GOD; it is life and Spirit, a SWORD of the Spirit that cuts to divisions and exposes the intention and thoughts of the heart. The Word is made flesh in us, The Word abiding in us, Christ abiding in us, as a LAMP shining in dark places UNTIL the Day of Christ dawns in us and the Morning Star rises in our hearts (2 Peter 1:16-19; Hebrews 4:12-13; 2 Cor 4:6-18). The Son of Righteousness rises in us with healing in its wings and we go forth leaping with joy like newborn calves; ashes of the enemy under your feet (Malachi 4:2-3).
“According to His Promises we wait with eager expectation and inspired anticipation for new heavens and a new earth in which RIGHTEOUSNESS dwells” 2 Peter 3:13
“RECEIVE the abundance of grace AND the free gift of RIGHTEOUSNESS to REIGN IN LIFE through the ONE MAN Jesus Christ” Romans 5:17
“YIELD YOURSELF to God as people who have been brought FROM DEATH TO LIFE, and your body to God as instruments of righteousness” Romans 6:18
“You are NOT IN THE FLESH, you are in the Spirit, IF IN FACT the Spirit of God dwells in you” Romans 8:9
“Besides this you know what hour it is, how it is FULL TIME NOW to wake from sleep…the day is at hand…put on the armor of light…take off the flesh and put on the Lord Jesus Christ” Romans 13:11-14
NOW is the time [there is NO TIME IN THE SPIRIT]; NOW is the DAY of salvation [there is no space or distance in the Spirit; the Cross is NOW; the End is from the Beginning; the Eternal Day of Christ is NOW, the DAY you come into the Knowledge beyond knowledge of God and His glory: the actual experience to know and be known].
“Do not ignore this ONE fact, beloved, that WITH THE LORD one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as ONE DAY” 2 Peter 3:8
“Come and yoke with the Lord” Matthew 11:28-29
“The Spirit showed me the holy city coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God…And I saw no temple in the city for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need for an external light source for the glory of God is our internal light, and its internal lamp is the Lamb” Revelation 21:10-23
“The eye is the lamp of the body…if your eye is sound and full of light, your WHOLE body is full of light” Luke 11:33-36
“Arise; shine, for your light has come and His glory has risen upon you…the glory shall come to you…to beautify the place of my sanctuary and I will make the place of my feet glorious…they shall call you the City of the LORD” Isaiah 60:1-14
The new city is the bride who is yoked, joined, spiritually married with Christ. She carries Christ wherever she goes; she carries His glory, carries His presence to change atmospheres, bringing a NHONE to all who will receive the righteousness of God in Christ as they let the past PASS AWAY: move from the old city to a new city of God: Christ in you.
Yield your body to Christ to allow Holy Spirit to move you. No matter what you are going through, *in the midst of trouble, sorrow, loss, grief, opposition, persecution; physical, emotional, mental or spiritual illness; torment, despair of life, disappointment in others, disillusionment in the world, discouragement, dismay, distress, overwhelm, exhaustion, being beaten down, spiritually attacked, depressed, oppressed, worried, or fearful; FEAR NOT; turn to Jesus; repent, change your mind, come into your right mind, come to your spiritual senses, take the Mind of Christ and return to God our Father and receive the Holy Spirit and fire to make your body living stones, an altar where you are totally altered into the likeness of Christ, the image of God; a pillar of fire filled with clouds of glory; rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus, the holy root, making your branches holy; filled with God’s Holy Spirit, your spirit made perfect, and as you allow your soul to be sanctified in Christ, your mind, heart and will are wholly sanctified, and your body can be filled with the Light of Christ with no spots of darkness (*Zephaniah 3:15-17)
How do you see yourself now? through physical eyes or through the spiritual eyes of Christ in God? Behold the glory of Christ and be changed into His likeness to carry His glory light, fire and Spirit River that flows from God’s Fountain of Living Waters.
“Examine who your “gods” are; they are no gods. My people have exchanged their glory for that which does not profit. Be appalled, O heavens, at this, be shocked, be utterly desolate, says the LORD, for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, BROKEN cisterns, that can hold no water…broken the crown of your head. Have you not brought this upon yourself by forsaking the LORD your God…How can you say, ‘I am not defiled, I have not gone after Ba’als? Look at your way in the valley; know what you have done…lust…shame…turned your back to God…you have rebelled against me…my people have forgotten me days without number…Yet in spite of all these things you say, ‘I am innocent…I have not sinned.’ How lightly you gad about, changing your way!…the LORD rejects those whom you trust” Jeremiah 2:11-37
turn, repent, return to God and receive the Holy Spirit and fire River
“Convince some who doubt; save some, by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling short of the glory and to present you without blemish before the presence of His glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord of lords, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time, and NOW and for ever. Amen.” Jude 1:22-25
Enter the new city by the Door of Jesus who washes us in His Blood to wear His white garment of righteousness, eat of the tree of life and drink of the Living Water: the River of water of life coming down from the Throne of God through those who have yielded their living body as their spiritual worship to enter the glory, and the glory enters and fills their body temple on earth as it is in heaven to flow to the ends of the earth.
“You shall receive Power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses to the end of the earth” Acts 1:8

Blessed be His glorious name for ever; may His glory fill the whole earth! Amen and Amen!” Psalm 72:1-19
And in that Day the mountains will drip sweet wine and the hills will flow with milk, and all the stream beds shall flow with water; and a fountain shall come forth from the Lord and water the valleys…the Lord of lords will dwell in those who come out of tribulation, conquering by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony of the ascended, glorified Christ rising in those who die with Christ to be made alive with Him to be seated with Him in heavenly places and reign with Him on earth as it is in heaven (Joel 3:18; Revelation 7:14; 11:15 12:11; 14:4; 19:7-16; 21:1-27; 22:1-17).
“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord. They are like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when the fire comes, for its leaves remain green (healing leaves) and is not anxious for it does not cease to bear fruit [Christ, the tree of life, is food indeed; the River of Spirit is drink indeed]” Jeremiah 17:7-8

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body — and all were made to drink of one Spirit” 1 Corinthians 12:13
Christ flows from our Father in heaven, in and through all who believe and take the River of Spirit by faith through grace, walk by faith not by sight, as we let God bring what does not exist into existence in and through us.
