My relationship with my people is not one where I visit them from time to time. It is a relationship where I dwell with them, as close to them as their next breath.

To dwell means to live in a specific place. Since Jesus came and died and was resurrected our God has made us his dwelling place his presence continually with us.

PS 27:4 Heres the one thing I crave from Yahweh,the one thing I seek above all else: I want to live with him every moment in his house, beholding the marvelous beautyof Yahweh,  filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace.  I want to contemplatein his temple. TPT

PS 27:8 I heard your voice in my heart say, Come, seek my face; my inner being responded,  Yahweh, Im seeking your face with all my heart. TPT

Ps 61:4 A lifetime pass to your safe-house, an open invitation as your guest.  MSG

PS 84:1 God of Heavens Armies, you find so much beauty in your people!  Theyre like lovelysanctuaries of your presence.Deep within me are these lovesick longings,desires and daydreams of living in union with you. When Im near you, my heart and my soul will sing and worship with my joyful songs of you, my true source and spring of life! TPT

JN 6:56 The one who eats my body and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in him.

57 The Father of life sent me, and he is my life. In the same way, the one who feeds upon me, I will become his life. TPT

JOHN 15:4-7 So you must remain in life-union with me, for I remain in life-union with you. For as a branch severed from the vine will not bear fruit, so your life will be fruitless unless you live your life intimately joined to mine.

I am the sprouting vine and youre my branches. As you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within youbut when you live separated from me you are powerless.

If a person is separated from me, he is discarded; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire to be burned.

But if you live in life-union with me and if my wordslive powerfullywithin youthen you can askwhatever you desire and it will be done.  TPT


JOHN 15:4 Our seamless union, you in me and I in you, is pictured in the vine: the shoot cannot bear fruit outside of this union. In its abiding in the vine, fruit happens naturally - as with your abiding in me.

5 I am the vine and you are the branches; it is the one who understands this mutual union that naturally bears much fruit - which is impossible to happen apart from me.

6 Every area of human life that does not continue to be entwined in this place of seamlessness in me, was already cast forth where it has withered away and is gathered to be burned as firewood. 

15:7 My words find voice in you. With your abiding in me and my words abiding in you a conversation is inspired where you will request that which arises in your desire from our union and it shall come to pass for you! MIRROR

Acts 17:24 "The God who made the world and everything in it, this Master of sky and land, doesn't live in custom-made shrines

25 or need the human race to run errands for him, as if he couldn't take care of himself. He makes the creatures; the creatures don't make him.

26 Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living

27 so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn't play hide-and-seek with us. He's not remote; he's near. MSG


ACTS 17:24  The true God is the Creator of all things. He is the owner and Lord of the heavenly realm and the earthly realm, and he doesnt live in man-made temples.

25 He supplies life and breath and all things to every living being. He doesnt lack a thing that we mortals could supply for him, for he has all things and everything he needs.

26 From one man, Adam, he made every man and woman and every race of humanity, and he spread us over all the earth. He sets the boundaries of people and nations, determining their appointed times in history.

 27 He has done this so that every person would long for God, feel their way to him, and find himfor he is the God who is easy to discover! TPT

1 JN 3:8 Sins source is a fallen mindset, from the beginning! For this purpose the Son of God was revealed! His mission was to undo the works of the Devil!  

3:9 To discover ones authentic sonship in God, is to discover true freedom from sin. We are born of him and his seed remains in us; this is the only possible reference to sober up the mind from the intoxicating influence of deception. MIRROR

Eph 3:17 that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love,

18 you'll be able to take in with all Christians the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights!

19 Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.  MSG   ↕↕↕

Eph 3:17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,

18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];

19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!  AMP

Col 2:9 Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don't need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him.

10 When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.

11 Entering into this fullness is not something you figure out or achieve. It's not a matter of being circumcised or keeping a long list of laws. No, you're already in insiders not through some secretive initiation rite but rather through what Christ has already gone through for you, destroying the power of sin.

12 If it's an initiation ritual you're after, you've already been through it by submitting to baptism. Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ. MSG

Col 3:16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts. AMP

1 John 2:24  As for you, keep in your hearts what you have heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the first dwells and remains in you, then you will dwell in the Son and in the Father [always].  AMP

Ps 90:1 LORD, YOU have been our dwelling place and our refuge in all generations [says Moses].

2 Before the mountains were brought forth or ever You had formed and given birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting You are God.  AMP


Ps 90:1 God, it seems you've been our home forever;

2 long before the mountains were born, Long before you brought earth itself to birth, from "once upon a time" to "kingdom come" you are God. MSG

JN 14:23 Jesus replied, Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place. TPT

EPH 2:22 This means that God is transforming each one of you into the Holy of Holies, his dwelling place, through the power of the Holy Spirit living in you!  TPT


EPH 2:22 In him you are co-constructed together as Gods permanent spiritual residence. You are Gods address!  MIRROR

2 COR 6:16 How can the tangible, physical address of the living God compare with a phantom image that people host in their minds? Mankind is Gods idea - we did not invent God or ourselves; he invented us! He said, In you will I reside and move and have my being; we belong together; I am yours and you are mine! MIRROR

JN 14:16 And I will ask the Father and he will give you anotherSavior,the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like meand he will never leave you. The world wont receive him because they cant see him or know him. But you know him intimately because he remains with you and will live inside you. TPT

1 John 3:24 As we keep his commands, we live deeply and surely in him, and he lives in us. And this is how we experience his deep and abiding presence in us: by the Spirit he gave us.  MSG


1 JN 3:24 For all who obey his commands find their lives joined in union with him, and he lives and flourishes in them. We know and have proof that he constantly lives and flourishes in us, by the Spirit that he has given us. TPT

1 COR 3:16 Dont you realize that together you have become Gods inner sanctuaryand that the Spirit of God makes his permanent home in you?

17 Now, if someone desecratesGods inner sanctuary, God will desecrate him, for Gods inner sanctuary is holy, and that is exactly who you are.TPT


1 COR 3:16 Realize that your life is Gods building; his sanctuary, designed for his permanent abode. His Spirit inhabits you!  

17 Just like fire would burn away the dross, any defilement of Gods temple would be destroyed in order to preserve human life as his permanent sanctuary. MIRROR  

2 COR 13:5 I implore you to examine faith for yourselves in order to test what it is that you really believe. Faith is so much more than the mere veneer of a superstitious belief in a historic Christ; faith is about realizing Jesus Christ in you, in the midst of contradiction! Just as ore is placed into a crucible, where the dross is separated from the gold in a furnace, come to the conclusion for yourselves of his indwelling! Should it appear to you that he is absent in your life, look again, you have obviously done the test wrong!   MIRROR
