Heb. 12:22 ¶ But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
The amazing thing about this passage is it says we are already brought to Zion. Zion and the New Jerusalem are more than just a place somewhere; they are the very kingdom of God which is here now. For most, the veil still blocks the view, for others they stand in the blazing beauty of His presence. Even seeing through a glass darkly is quite stunning, I can’t even imagine face to face. That veil that blocks the view is taken away in Christ. What kind of veil blocks your view? Is it pain from past disappointments? Maybe its shame for a past life that somehow still feels very present. Could it be your veil consists of offenses from past betrayals never really letting go of the past and all that was said and done? Regardless of what material your veil consists of it is totally and finally removed in Christ. Here is how Andrew Murray describes this beautiful city called Zion.
“Ye are come unto Mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. Read the description of the heavenly Jerusalem in Revelations, and listen to the voice: Behold I the tabernacle of God is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. The Lord God Almighty, and the Lamb are the temple thereof. The glory of God did lighten it, and the light thereof is the Lamb. The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be therein; and His servants shall do Him service; and they shall see His face. This is the glory to which Jesus has brought thee in, when He took away the veil. In the power and experience of that opened way the Holy Spirit enables thee to live. This is the city which Abraham looked for, which hath the foundations. Thou art come to it. Of this city thou art now a citizen. In it thou canst live, for thou hast been brought into the Holiest, the very centre of the city, the very presence of God. Ye are come unto Mount Sion.”
So let go of the past; the anger, the guilt, and the pain and let’s go to Zion. It’s nearer and more amazing than you have ever thought. As a matter of fact it is here right now within your reach.
