This Weeks Message- (scripture taken from King James Version)
ENTER IN THE MOST HOLY PLACE
Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the High Priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience. Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by HIS OWN BLOOD he entered in once into the Holy Place having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the BLOOD OF CHRIST, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. (Heb 9:6-15)
Before I begin to share what the Lord has given me in this weeks message, let us first establish once and for all the very purpose of the creation of man. It is important that we, being His creation understand His purpose, that we may be pleasing to Him in all things, serving Him with a pure and joyful heart. For our spirits have known the purpose of God from the beginning, however the flesh rebels against the truth. For there are some whove been severely misled into believing they were created by God only to be served by Him. They ask, and he supplies. They command and he adheres to the command, and yet NOTHING made has ever nor shall ever take precedent over HE who has made it! He who creates is ABOVE what has been created as what has been created was done so for the purpose of SERVING its CREATOR and NOT to be served BY its Creator. For no one has purposely created something for the sole desire of becoming the servant of the thing he has made, but the thing made MUST become the servant to HE who made it! Therefore, man was not created by God that he would then become the servant to man, but rather that man would from his heart choose to serve Him. For man was NOT the creator but the subject of the creation, thus in order to function as he was designed to do, the creation must be fully yielded to the CREATOR. Through the yielding there is intense intimacy and divine oneness with our Father such as he desires and as the first Physical man Adam experienced before the fall. For he did walk in this beautiful intimacy and awesome fellowship with The Lord God until SIN entered in and he could no longer remain. Therefore, the door was shut and only the High Priest could enter in, until JESUS made the way for ALL that so desired to Enter in The Most Holy Place.
The Tabernacle (place of dwelling) as described in the Old Testament consisted of THREE parts. The first was the Outer Courts where burnt offerings were made. The people would give their offering to the Lord through Aaron and his sons, who would then offer this to The Lord for atonement.
second part of the Tabernacle was called The Holy Place. This was the first portion of the actual
third part of the Tabernacle was called The Most Holy Place. Here was the place of total surrender, of complete
worship to the Lord. A place of reconciliation
and blessed intimacy, where creation worshiped and honored his creator with all that was
within. In The
the church today, we have many that have yet to enter in the
are also many that have come into the
There are many that may desire to enter into The Most Holy Place, but what keeps man who was originally created for this purpose from entering in this most blessed place of intimacy with The Father is his refusal to let go of self. For if he desires to cling to the things of the flesh, he cannot enter in and with the spirit worship The Father, as sin cannot dwell in The Most Holy Place. Thus man remains in the outer courts offering up sacrifices to the Lord in hopes of blotting out the present sins, believing that good works and the giving of gifts would cover his inward wickedness, having no spiritual understanding that atonement has already been made through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God. Mans only need is to repent and surrender himself back to The Lord. For there is no longer a veil of separation, and all who desire to return back to the SPIRITUALLY NATURAL FORM OF WORSHIP are free to do so. However, we CANNOT take the sins of the flesh with us but must be purged and cleansed having all that is not of God uprooted from us that we may serve him with a pure heart. Thus, the flesh has no part, for those who worship the Lord MUST worship Him in SPIRIT and in TRUTH! Inwardly, our spirits LONG for this for it is natural to our spirits since it is the spirit of man that was created in the IMAGE of God. Thus, the spirit desires the things of the Lord, but the flesh which was NOT created in His Image and which has the very nature of sin, rebels against this desiring more to please itself. Therefore, there is constant war going on between the flesh and spirit, but the spirit has the power to put the flesh under subjection that it would follow and no longer lead.
The door to the blessed and sacred place is always open. This is the place the Lord desires his children to dwell. And, if we desire to Enter in The Most Holy Place, if we desire to return back to our natural form of worship, then we must allow ourselves to be thoroughly washed and cleansed, having all that is not of God purged from us and MUST ourselves be willing to say NO to the flesh and YES to the spirit in TOTAL surrender to the one who so lovingly formed us and breathed the breath of life into us. He IS above all! Nothing and no one should come before Him. He is the first and the Last, the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega, GREAT and WONDERFUL is his name WORTHY to be PRAISE with everlasting praises!
LET THE CREATION, SAY TO THE CREATOR .FATHER, I SURRENDER!
I WORSHIP YOU, I WORSHIP YOU! THE REASON THAT I LIVE, IS TO WORSHIP YOU!!
The Lord be with you this day and always! Shalom Uvracha (Peace and Blessings) ..
