A Piece of Heaven in Us
“Thou will say, ‘God dwells in Heaven.’ O! Thou blind mind, full of darkness; the Heaven where God dwells is also in thee, as Adam was both upon Earth, and also in Paradise at once at once; and give not way to Antichrist to direct thee aloft without this world above the stars, for he tells thee a lie, as the Devil himself did. God is everywhere, as the Prophet David says: If I fly from the Daybreak, or into hell, thou art there. Also where is the place of my rest? Am not I he that fills all things? Yet I behold the miserable and those that are of a broken spirit, and I will dwell in them; Also, I will dwell in Jacob, and my Tabernacle shall be in Israel. Understand it right, He will dwell in the contrite and broken Spirit, which breaks the Gate of Darkness, He will press into that spirit. Therefore, beware of the longing and say not in thyself, I stand in the Dark, the Lord sees me not, nr what I think and do. He stands in the gate of the mind, where the Soul stands (before the clear face of God) in the opened Gate; and all thy abominations are known to God.” ~Jacob Boehme
God Dwells in Heaven
God does dwell in Heaven, but not only in Heaven. This is difficult to understand when we are used to the limitations of physical matter. Such limitations do not affect the spiritual, and certainly have no effect at all on God. Yet, it is not accurate to say that God is everywhere. It is more accurate to say that God is in all things and beings of spirit. He is not, however, found in matter. It is only because the third dimension where we humans dwell is part matter and part spirit that God’s presence is here, but only in the spiritual part. If we descended into the second dimension of pure matter, we would not find God there at all.
Think about it this way. If you had a chance to vacation in a land of cancer and other dreadful diseases where there was nearly a 100% chance that you will get one of those diseases, would you go? I certainly hope not. While to God, matter is a kind of cancer. Therefore, God will not descend into that muck that would contaminate his purity. So he is on this level with us, but in the spiritual part only. Continue reading “Heaven In Us and Above Us”
