The past few weeks I have been experiencing a new level of intimacy and an extraordinary level of the presence of the Holy Spirit. Several friends have also told me that they have noticed the same in their times of prayer. The only way to achieve this personal relationship with Him is to learn how to come into this place of intimacy with the Holy Spirit.
The Lord says, as you’ve longed to know My voice; you’ve longed to know My ways, I now invite you into this place of intimacy. Come now My beloved, let me take you to this place. In this place of intimacy, I will reveal My secrets to you. In this place, you will learn to discern My voice and recognize My leading. Come with Me into this secret place. Come with the innocence of a child and with no agenda of your own. Surrender your will to Me as you welcome Me in.
As you come into this place of honor, enter with reverence. Here you will find the hidden treasures that you have been searching for. You will experience the peace that you have longed for. Do not come with preconceived notions. Discard of your old mindsets and man made traditions and come in pursuit of My plans and purposes. In this place you will receive favor. In this place I will make ancient mysteries known to you. In this place you will receive wisdom and revelation. This is the place where My Shekinah Glory dwells. You now have access to enter this sacred place because the veil has been torn and I have made provision for you. So come in to this Secret place, this place of intimacy, The Holy of Holies where My Glory dwells says the Lord.
Then He showed me a picture of the Tabernacle:
As we pass through the Outer Courts, we come through the process of cleansing and repentance. We no longer need to sacrifice animals because Jesus has become a sacrifice and shed His blood for us.
We then come into the Inner Court which is the Holy Place of His presence. This is where we commune with Jesus. Our prayer, praise and worship go up before Him as a fragrance of incense. We are to always keep our lamps burning in this place. We are then privileged to come to the next level.
We now have access into the Holy of Holies because the veil has been torn and we are invited to this place by our divine Creator. This is The Most Holy Place; The Kodesh Hakodashim. This is the place where we can venture into deeper depths than we have ever known. We must enter this sacred place with clean hands and a pure heart. We come before the Ark of the Covenant. In the ark are His tablets of stone which symbolizes His Word which is now written in our hearts, His manna which symbolizes His provision for us, and Aaron’s rod that budded symbolizing that He has the power to bring life from something that is dead. The Mercy seat which we no longer have to sacrifice on, because Jesus has been made a living sacrifice for us by His atoning blood.
Hebrews 9:24 28 “For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another. He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”
Matthew 27:51 “Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split…”
Hebrews 10:19-22 “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”
