Jesus is our High Priest, having offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice, He is completing us in sanctification that we may not only enter but abide in the Father’s presence forever and behold His glory! We have been chosen as priests to minister to God himself and eventually rule with Him as a Kingdom with the same power and authority of our Lord Jesus Christ!
So now what? One does not simply walk into the Holy of Holies.
But, we can simply walk into the Holy of Holies because Jesus is the only way, He has torn the veil and made the way for us. God has given us a nice diagram in the outline of the Temple. (Derek Prince has a great teaching about this called: “The Way into the Holiest”) And the O.T. and Hebrews give a lot of insight into the beautiful symbolism of the glory of God’s Temple….Which is US.
Yeah, we are His temple and we are also priests in His temple. The temple also symbolizes the Triune nature of God and Jesus is represented in many different ways within the symbolism. The point is…it’s a very profound mystery. And it is given to us to know the secrets of His Kingdom!
In the O.T. any child of Abraham (N.T.=Christian-Gal.3:7) could enter the Outer Court of the Temple but, only Priests could enter the Inner Courts. That’s where the anointing and revelation of the Holy Spirit are and I believe the power and authority of Jesus are in the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies! That’s why every Christian can pray for healing but only some can prophecy and declare healing!
That is the place that I am going and you are being called to come deeper! I believe that there are secrets and mysteries of God that have never been discovered in the Scriptures. God is looking for a people that hunger and thirst for Him, His righteousness, His Kingdom, to know Him and be known by Him and to be a holy people that glorify Him in everything that they do! Those are the people that are going to manifest His grace, glory, love, wisdom and righteousness to this dark world in a glowing light that has never been witnessed in such a broad way in all of history!
Daniel spoke of 2 kinds of people at the end of his prophecy, concerning the end of our age. Which one will you be?
Daniel 12:3,10″And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever…Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand.”
Remember that we are told “Be ye holy because God is holy.” (1 Peter 1:16)
