“And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.” Rev 21:16
John the Revelator saw the Blessed City, the Lord answers the human cry for equality.
There are no districts in heaven — up town, down town; urban, suburbs; upper-class, middle-class, lower-class. While a proverbial train may take us to glory, there are no tracks in that blessed land; so no “wrong side of the tracks” for any one ever.
Equality. The word comes from the Latin term meaning level.
We would say “a level playing field” meaning that it is fair for all participants. No unfair or unjust advantages. In heaven we all agree. In heaven we are equal — we are like in quality, nature, and dignity. There we are free from extremes; tranquil in mind and mood; not vying for supremacy or dominance, nor scrambling for beach-front property.
Heaven will be a place where we each experience the full measure of the vast love of God. Yet we don’t have to wait for Heaven; God’s love is ours NOW. Remember, Jesus taught us to pray — “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth, as it is heaven.” We can live now as Citizens of that Place, and bring its bright influence into all the dark and desperate places in our fallen world.
We can be men and women who are heavenly minded while yet living on the earth.
