3 And there was the angel who talked with me, going out; and another angel was coming out to meet him, 4 who said to him, “Run, speak to this young man, saying: ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls, because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. 5 For I,’ says the LORD, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
The church of God who is the bride of the Bridegroom, to its inhabitants, “For I,’ says the LORD, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’” What a wonderful words of protection and His purpose towards His church. Many times, we forget that we are part of a big community. A community that took part in the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ our Lord. There are no earthly boundaries or a wall of protection for this community, because God Himself as Immanuel manifested His presence as a wall of fire. He is the boundary and protection of the body of Christ. Who is eligible for this protection and His presence?
This protection and His presence are not eligible for anybody with unbelief. It is not for people who harden their hearts even though they heard the word of God repeatedly and did not repented. It is for those who became partakers of Christ in faith and held their confidence steadfastly in Christ that was in the beginning until the end (Heb 3:14). Do not seek to go out of this body with your unbelief. Do not harden your hearts when the Holy Spirit knocks on your door for fellowship. Have confidence in Him Who called you with a heavenly calling to join in His body for eternal life and to enjoy the glorious presence of our LORD.
