The New Jerusalem

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea no longer is. And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, having been prepared as a bride, having been adorned for her Husband And I heard a great voice out of Heaven, saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God with men! (Revelation 21:1-3)

The descending of the holy city, New Jerusalem is a symbol of what living the spiritual life produces within a person. The doctrines for Spiritual Christianity offer us new ways to think about the nature of God and the Word, of the self, of life after death and of heaven and hell. The ideas they contain are designed to build a new rational faculty within us from which we can see what is spiritual but this can only happen when the truths that they offer are practiced and made the basis for how we live and examine our inner life. In this way, they are the means by which what is heavenly can descend into, and become more grounded in the reality of our lives. Becoming a living doctrine, from and for our life … prepared as a bride adorned for her Husband.
