Out Of Heaven From God

“...Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God..."
(Revelation 21:9‭-‬11).

John was shown the prophetic vision of the church. He was privileged to see the church as God sees it. Natural people have a natural perception about the real nature of the church. Their judgement is clouded by prejudice,  denominational differences, perceived hypocrisy and utter wickedness of some "church goers". It is wrong to see the church and judge her this way. Take a ride with John in the spirit and see the Lamb's wife.

Carried away to a high moutain, John saw the church like a great city. As far as God is concerned, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5:14). You are not trying to get to that city, "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who  are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,"
(Hebrews 12:22‭-‬23).

The city came "out of heaven from God". Believers are born of God or born from above. We hail from God: "You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world." (I John 4:4). We are not products of cruel indoctrination and subjugation, we are God's offspring with the same nature as our Lord Jesus Christ. We are victorious over the fallen world, "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith." (I John 5:4).

Our faith is the victory that overcomes demonic forces, natural plagues, economic woes, death and all the power of the enemy. In all these things, we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus our Lord. This is the church as God sees it, full of His glory.

I came out of heaven from God. I am victorious over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt me.

The believer has no glory but the glory of God. The believer in himself is destitute of glory. We receive our glory from our God. We reflect the glory of God. Our purpose for eternity will be to shine out the glory of God in our lives. The best is yet ahead for the believer.
