3 And I heard a aloud voice out of the throne, saying, Behold, the 1btabernacle of God is with men, and He will ctabernacle with them, and dthey will be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
31 As God's habitation, the New Jerusalem will be the tabernacle of God with men for eternity. The tabernacle made by Moses was a type of this tabernacle (Exo. 25:8-9; Lev. 26:11). That type was first fulfilled in Christ as God's tabernacle among men (John 1:14) and will eventually be fulfilled in the fullest way in the New Jerusalem, which will be the enlargement of Christ as God's dwelling place. This tabernacle will also be the eternal dwelling place of God's redeemed people. God will overshadow us with Christ. (See note 153 in ch. 7.) Hence, the New Jerusalem will be a mutual habitation for both God and us.
