We know that God dwells in heaven and He inhabits the praise of His people. He is a very fair and righteous God whose judgment fills the earth through all who love the truth of His ways! (Psalm 9:7-10)But the Lord shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment. And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness. The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
We must learn and apply the just ways that are pleasing to God, for this is the way we are able to bring His habitation to earth. God sits on the circle of the earth ever strong and is never weary, and His knowledge is infinite! (Isaiah 40:21,22,28) Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? Is it he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in. Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
The Holy Spirit which dwells within the believer is God inhabiting a vessel set apart for Him, and He knows those who are His (2 Timothy 2:19-21) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
The day is coming when only those who serve Christ will usher in His kingdom for there will be no more wickedness in the earth! (Psalm 10:30) The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
The day will come when the seventh angel will sound and by doing so will usher in the kingdom of our Lord, a kingdom where only righteousness will dwell forever! (Revelation 11:15) And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
Our Father is forever searching the earth to see if there are any who do seek Him, and as we see in a psalm David that the poor are shamed for having God as their refuge (Psalm 14) To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge. Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
