Chapter 21

5. The Glory of the Deity



“The Holy Jerusalem descending from the Deity having THE GLORY OF THE DEITY”.


The glory of the Deity is the Spirit, who, in Zech. 2:5,10, saith, “I will be unto Jerusalem a wall of fire round about, and the Glory in the midst of her. Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for lo, I come, and will dwell in the midst of thee, saith Yahweh”.

The brightness of this glory is very great; for “the city hath no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they shine in it; for the glory of the Deity hath lightened it, and the lamp of it is the Lamb”. This connects the Lord Jesus with the glory, he being the slain element of the symbolic Lamb.

The bright splendor of the glory is likened to a most precious Jasper stone clear as crystal. A beautiful transparent cerulean gem is the symbol of the Spirit condensed into Spirit substance; and as it is the essential and heaven-descended principle of the city, whose builder and maker the Deity is, the wall of the city, and “the first foundation is a jasper”. In ch. 4:3, the Spirit-occupant of the throne is likened to a jasper. It is the Spirit-symbol, being of various hues, such as purple, cerulean, green.
