Kunlun or Kunlun Shan is the Axis Mundi (the Holy of Holies) depicted as a mountain or mountain range. It is a Chinese perception of mount Zion: the house of the LORD.
For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. "This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it. (Psalm 132:13-14)
Mount Zion is a network of people where each person is a stone and the network is a wall. Kunlun implies that the Chinese are part of the stones constituting mount Zion. The Chinese are also the children of Abraham; they too are heirs to the kingdom of God.
God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. (Matthew 3:9) "NKJV"
The Axis Mundi is the tree of life whose leaves are for reconciling the nations of the earth. Since Kunlun is the Axis Mundi, China (a nation) is reconciled to the other nations of the earth to form the cosmos via the knowledge of the Kunlun.

The Axis Mundi is a point of agreement; therefore the knowledge of the Kunlun in China agrees with the knowledge of the Axis Mundi in other parts of the world.
Kunlun was sometimes viewed as the pillar holding up the sky and keeping it separated from the earth, some accounts place the top of Kunlun in Heaven rather than locating it as part of the earth: in this case the Supreme Deity's abode on Kunlun is actually in Heaven (Wikipedia)
Through the tree of life, people from all parts of the world are citizens of the kingdom of God. The tree is the ladder from earth to heaven. Hence people are able to climb from earth into heaven wherever the ladder is located. In China, the ladder is Kunlun, which means that the Chinese will ascend into heaven via the Kunlun.
Kunlun functions as a sort of ladder which could be used to travel between earth and Heaven. Accordingly, any person who succeeded in climbing up to the top of Kunlun would magically become an immortal spirit. (Wikipedia)
The term "Person" implies the physical and the term "Spirit" implies the metaphysical. Therefore Kunlun (the tree of life) is a ladder connecting the physical and the metaphysical. It is the Mandala or the Taiji manifesting as a mountain.
Kunlun depicts the mountain that came from Christ.
The stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. (Daniel 2:35) "NKJV"
The stone: Jesus
Great mountain: Kunlun
Jesus was an individual by whom humans on earth ascend into heaven.
Jesus said to him,
Heaven and earth are two different worlds: the world below is the past and the world above is the future.
He said to them,
Jesus is a time traveler who traveled from the future to the past to lead the people dwelling in the chaotic past (the world below) to the harmonious future (the world above). The past was the earth and the future is heaven.
Beneath: the past
You are from beneath: you belong to the chaotic past
I am from above: I came from the harmonious future
Jesus came to teach human beings how to become the Axis Mundi. He and all the people that became like him constitute the wall: the network. The wall is a mountain, considering the very large population of people that were transformed into the Axis Mundi.
The stone: Jesus (the Jasper stone)
The chief cornerstone: the keystone or the capstone or the headstone
All other people are anchored on Jesus such that together they constitute the Kunlun (the mountain). And since the mountain is the kingdom of God, Kunlun is the kingdom of God.
The God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed (Daniel 2:44) "KJV"
The stones constituting Kunlun are the citizens of the kingdom of God.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. (Isaiah 60:3) "KJV"
