The Mystery Of The Abode of God
“And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband; Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God. God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away” Revelation 21:2-4.
“AND JOB again took up his discussion and said, 2 Oh, that I were as in the months of old, as in the days when God watched over me, 3 When His lamp shone above and upon my head and by His light I walked through darkness; 4 As I was in the [prime] ripeness of my days, when the friendship and counsel of God were over my tent, 5 When the Almighty was yet with me and my children were about me, 6 When my steps [through rich pasturage] were washed with butter and the rock poured out for me streams of oil!” Job 29:1-6
(Bill O’Marra shares about his vision experience of the tent coming down over a woman while at the Healing Rooms)
“My People are My Abode. My People are also My Habitation. It is time for My People to be changed in My Presence, and to be free of their sorrow, pain, sicknesses, and works of death; and when they do, then their old former ways and condition shall be passed away from the midst of them. My People are living on earth, but they also dwell with Me in the heavenlies. I want My people to not only be familiar with both realms, but also to learn to function in both realms. They can pour forth what they have become, into the earth and change it. It is time that My People become the light of this world. It is time that My People become My Abode on earth, so that all men will be drawn unto Me. It is time for the earth to see My Glory, and they will see it as I walk with them, and dwell in the midst of them.”
“Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for] it is by grace (His favor and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation). 6 And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 7 He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus” Ephesians 2:5-7.
“You must fully realize that you not only carry My Glory, but you are the Abode of My Glory. My Glory is transforming you, day by day. You don’t see the full manifestation of it yet, but you see the evidence of the changes that are now taking place. I am acclimating you to Me. You must learn more of Me, and allow My Rest to manifest fully in you. I am growing you up into full maturity. You will exhibit My Majesty. You must realize that I am fashioning you to embody Me in a greater reality, before men. I am revealing to you a deep, deep mystery.”
“But we are citizens of the state (commonwealth, homeland) which is in heaven, and from it also we earnestly and patiently await [the coming of] the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [as] Savior, 21 Who will transform and fashion anew the body of our humiliation to conform to and be like the body of His glory and majesty, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself” Philippians 3:20-21.
“Then will the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God) shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him who has ears [to hear] be listening, and let him consider and perceive and understand by hearing. – It’s a Mystery!!!” Matthew 13:43.
“And the teachers and those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) [shall give forth light] like the stars forever and ever” Daniel 12:3.
“I have been stepping you out in your journeys. I have laid out each and every discovery in your path for you to find, and to also grow up into. I have tested your heart. I have tested your soul. I have tested your faith. I have tested your obedience. I have tested your flesh. I have tested your patience. I have tested your trust in Me and My Word. I have tested your faithfulness. All of these things I have done in order to fashion you for the things I am about to do with you, and also do among you. So, let you hearts and minds now ponder on these things.”
“For David says in regard to Him, I saw the Lord constantly before me, for He is at my right hand that I may not be shaken or overthrown or cast down [from my secure and happy state]. 26 Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue exulted exceedingly; moreover, my flesh also will dwell in hope [will encamp, pitch its tent, and dwell in hope in anticipation of the resurrection]. 27 For You will not abandon my soul, leaving it helpless in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor let Your Holy One know decay or see destruction [of the body after death]” Acts 2:25-27.
He walked with God. He saw the Lord as he walked with him. Where did he see Him? Within Himself, and also all around him. He developed a God consciousness in his spirit and soul, and cultivated that deep inner relationship within himself, which also manifested all around His life as he walked. The soul that is in the state of the departed spirits, is likened unto a soul whose condition is in torment, or in anguish, troubled, and in darkness.
In essence, David was saying, “Lord, I have matured to a place where I am aware of you within myself and all around me; and my flesh and my soul is in peace, because I am in covenant with you. My hope is fixed on you, and heart dwells in hope in you, until I am fully transformed.”
“Then [at Mount Sinai] His voice shook the earth, but now He has given a promise: Yet once more I will shake and make tremble not only the earth but also the [starry] heavens. 27 Now this expression, Yet once more, indicates the final removal and transformation of all [that can be] shaken — that is, of that which has been created — in order that what cannot be shaken may remain and continue. 28 Let us therefore, receiving a kingdom that is firm and stable and cannot be shaken, offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship, with modesty and pious care and godly fear and awe” Hebrews 12:26-28.
“SEE WHAT [an incredible] quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him. 2 Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God’s children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is” 1 John 3:1-2.
“And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth” John 1:14.
“I am going to open the doors of My Abode again to all men, and I will do it through your lives. I am deeply and thoroughly transforming My People, and I am redefining the revelation of being My House . I will dwell with men again, and I will also manifest Myself among you as you conform to My Image and Likeness within and without. Know this, that without a doubt, My Glory has already begun to break out, but this is only a drop, in comparison to what I am about to reveal. I am making you ready to be unsealed. You are the Scroll in My Hand that is about to be unrolled before man.”
“For it is through Him that we both [whether far off or near] now have an introduction (access) by one [Holy] Spirit to the Father [so that we are able to approach Him]. 19 Therefore you are no longer outsiders (exiles, migrants, and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens), but you now share citizenship with the saints (God’s own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself); and you belong to God’s [own] household. 20 You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone. 21 In Him the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord]. 22 In Him [and in fellowship with one another] you yourselves also are being built up [into this structure] with the rest, to form a fixed abode (dwelling place) of God in (by, through) the Spirit” Ephesians 2:18-22.
