The Divine Dispensing for Eternity

New Jerusalem is a city of resurrection life. The divine light, the river of water of life, and the fruits of the tree of life are the eternal life supply in New Jerusalem.

The uncreated light, the river of water of life, and the tree of life are all for the divine dispensing to maintain the New Jerusalem, to supply the necessities of the holy city, and to sustain the divine building for eternity. The light shines to dispense, the river flows to dispense, and the tree grows to dispense. The light, the river, and the tree are for dispensing the very substance, element, and essence of the Triune God into our being.*

The Triune God created man in His image so that man could express God. However, man in himself cannot do this. Man needs God’s life to express God. So God put the created man in the garden of Eden with the tree of life and the river, a picture of God as life. Man did not take of that tree and fell into sin and death.

Jesus Christ redeemed us by His death. That re-opened the way to the tree of life and the water of life. Now we are partaking of this wonderful supply. By partaking, the divine life spreads in us and increases God’s expression. The ultimate development is New Jerusalem which shines with the glory of God!
