But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

HEBREWS 12:22

But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,

The heavenly Jerusalem is a reality in this world now, it might be hidden to this world, but those that have been born into her, know that she is very real and now.

On resurrection day the Lord ascended the holy hill of Zion and established new Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is here and there, now and then. ( William Stringfellow)

Jerusalem is not found in one place, she is found in everyplace.

Jerusalem is in this world, but not of this world.

Jerusalem is high above this world, but not beyond it?

Where two or three are gathered in her, there she is.

Jerusalem is transient in time, but eternal in nature.

She has claims to this world, but this world has no claims on her.

She is holy, she is free, she is pure.
