If you ask anyone, even the most ignorant, about God’s habitation, he or she will likely tell you “It is heaven.” Ask again where heaven is, he or she will likely point to the sky. This is so but it is more than that. Exodus 15:2 says “The Lord is my strength, my song and my salvation and I will prepare Him an habitation….” Can Moses, who was speaking here, go to heaven to make a habitation for God to live? Psalm 91:1 says “He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” The secret place of God is explained as “the shadow of the Almighty.”
Exodus 25: 8 states “And let them make me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them (the Israelites).” The sanctuary is a consecrated place, a holy habitation, not necessarily in heaven. It can be in your heart or a place set apart for God in your home.
Holiness is mandatory for God’s habitation, whether in heaven or in the earthly sanctuary. People often say that God should come and dwell in their hearts when they pray. Do they know that God cannot dwell in a dirty heart? In Ephesians 3:17, Apostle Paul prayed that Jesus Christ may dwell in their hearts. When God’s spirit dwells in you, it means that there is no idol whatsoever in your heart (Roman 8:9).
God’s habitation is beautifully pictured in Revelation 21:10-27, the great city of God’s habitation in heaven is called The Holy city, “the New Jerusalem” or the “Heavenly Jerusalem.”
Ephesians 2:20b-22 “Jesus Christ Himself, being the Chief corner stone; in whom all the buildings fifly framed together grows unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are built together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
Come, oh my Saviour, Come and ransom those in captivity; free them from the clutches of Satan, Mighty Warrior, and take them to your heavenly habitation where peace reigns forever in Jesus’ name. Amen.
