If you are a thoughtful person, you may ask why God created man, saved man, and chose and predestinated man. If you are thoughtful, you also have to think about why God is Triune, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. Why does man have a body, a soul, and a spirit? What is the purpose and what will be the ultimate consummation of all these things? In principle, we have to realize that our God is a God of purpose. He is not a God of meaninglessness, but He is quite thoughtful and purposeful. We need to see and realize what the ultimate consummation of His purpose is, not only in the universe but especially in man. The answer to all these questions is at the end of the Bible, and the answer is the New Jerusalem….
The New Jerusalem is also the ultimate consummation of God’s purpose in man. God became incarnate to redeem us, and He became a life-giving Spirit to enter into us, to saturate us, to soak us, for His ultimate purpose in man. We must go along with His saturation so that He could fulfill His purpose in the creation of man.
It would be good if we could be transformed forever by one great saturation of the Spirit. However, God does it in the way of life, and He will have it consummated in the New Jerusalem. Our salvation, our spiritual experiences, and our transformation will consummate in the New Jerusalem….
Without the New Jerusalem there is no answer to any question in this universe. Once you see the New Jerusalem, you have the answer to every question. Why did God create man, redeem man, transform man, perfect man, and glorify man? For the New Jerusalem. God wants Himself to consummate in the New Jerusalem and He wants you to be with Him in this consummation. This is the answer. The New Jerusalem is the answer. It is the ultimate consummation of God’s purpose in man.
Excerpts from God’s New Testament Economy, Chapter 26 (W. Lee, LSM)
Now the greatest question in the universe has been answered by the Scripture; it is the New Jerusalem, our consummation, every believer’s destiny.
So do not be discouraged by any kind of situation today. We need to see this. Set the New Jerusalem as our hope. Hallelujah! Whatever we do in the church, any kind of services…preaching the gospel, teaching the divine truths, having the proper way of meeting. All these things are for the New Jerusalem and will consummate in the New Jerusalem. Praise the Lord!
I’m so blessed that I’m in the Lord’s recovery. I’m freed from and not blinded by religion. The ministry of the age opened my eyes. Today’s ministry caused me to really give myself to the Lord and love Him. By this way, the Lord has a way to carry out what is in His heart today, God’s economy. This economy, what He is doing today, eventually, again, will consummate in the New Jerusalem. Amen!
This is my #MinistryReading! Hallelujah!
