Read Introduction to Revelation

 

“And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God“
 
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.
 
We hear a “loud voice from heaven” for the last time. The loud voice announces that the “tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.” God will be personally present with His people.
 
The word “tabernacle” means dwelling place. Believers will have intimate fellowship with God on an ongoing basis. The tabernacle of the Old Testament only typified the Shekinah glory of the Lord Jesus. The tabernacle of eternity is His very presence. We will see Him in His glory. He will not carry the humiliation of the cross.
God Himself will be with them and be their God.
Saints will have God’s presence with them in this new creation. A new intimacy will exist between God and His people because sin will not be an issue in the relationship. God will have a new immediate presence with His people. Old Testament saints had to depend on the tabernacle to experience the presence of God. In the Eternal State, we will constantly experience God’s presence.
Principle:
In eternity, we will continuously experience the presence of God
Application:
The Lord “tabernacled” [pitched His tent] among us (John 1:14). He became a man and lived in a human body for thirty-three and a half years. People of the first century were graced by His bodily presence. In heaven, Jesus will grace us with His full presence. Jesus will carry no humiliation of His earthly presence.
In eternity, God Himself will be present with us, no vice-president, no CEO, but God Himself.
