"These are the exits from the city: On the north side, 4,500 units by measurement, are to be the gates of the city.

Tell me, those of you who want to live under the Law: Are you really listening to what the Law says? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave woman and the other by a free woman. Now the slave woman's son was conceived through human means, while the free woman's son was conceived through divine promise. read more.

But the heavenly Jerusalem is the free woman, and she is our spiritual mother.

See to it that you do not ignore the one who is speaking.

The expression "once more" signifies the removal of what can be shaken, that is, what he has made, so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful and worship God in reverence and fear in a way that pleases him.
