Because our connection IS the SPIRIT . it resides in heaven and within the believers . As far as seeing the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living . HE is with us my dear friend . And those who are His are in heavenly places in Christ JESUS .
Please would someone explain how, on Earth now, we can dwell in the house of the Lord? I assume it is not literal, as the Temple is no more. How can I live (dwell) with God yet still be here on Earth?
13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
How can we see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living?
Wow, you started off with a bang! There are a couple of ways you can look at dwelling in the house of the Lord. It can refer to joining together with other believers in a church setting. That is a way of dwelling in the House of the Lord. We actually look at coming in here as like coming into a church setting, but it goes much deeper than that. We who belong to Christ are with Him all the time. We are joined together with the body of Christ at all times, so to be dwelling in the House of the Lord all your life is to be part of God's body all your life, connected to the church.
We see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living all the time. We feel His presence. He looks after us, and answers our prayers. I can tell you personally of miracles He has done for me, and times He has healed me or answered a prayer. Just being able to get up to greet the new day, and having strength to face the day is the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
