According to our experience, if we do not behave and live according to God’s divine nature, we feel dried up within, and we do not sense the flow of life within us. We have the flow of the water of life within us when we are living, behaving, and having our life according to God’s divine nature. If you do not walk in the divine nature as the divine street, you are dried up because there is no riverbed for the flow of the street.*
Second Peter 1:4 proclaims “He has granted to us precious and exceedingly great promises that through these you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption which is in the world by lust.”
Outwardly we are still living in the world and are surrounded by things of corruption. But inwardly we are partakers of the divine nature.
The divine nature is portrayed by the golden street of New Jerusalem. This shows that our Christian walk today should be according to the divine nature in us. When we feel dry, even this sense is from the Lord and indicates that we should confess our failures to be cleansed and live the divine nature (1 John 1:9).
The divine nature and the flow of the Spirit are our current foretaste of New Jerusalem. The more we enjoy them, the more we will eagerly await the Lord’s return which will fully save us from the world’s corruption.
