Living in Glorious Light
An assumption exists that Christians will simply live in heaven. But in John chapter 15 Jesus told his disciples that he is going away to prepare a place for them—a dwelling place. When we enter into John's other book, the Book of Revelation, the dwelling place of the Saints appears to be the New Jerusalem—a city that is 1500 miles wide, long, and high. It will not have a Temple in it, but instead God the Father and Jesus Christ are its Temple by their mere presence. We will live in glorious light of this New Jerusalem
I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb (Revelation 21:22-23).
The light of the place is supernatural; it does not depend upon the sun or the moon. But instead the glory of God is its illumination and the glorified presence of the Lamb is its lamp. We are first taken to heaven, and there we inhabit this New Jerusalem. Then, Christ conquers the earth, and we return in this City to dwell with Christ over the earth in the thousand year reign of Christ.
