Imagine it’s holiday season, and you were given an option to go for a fully paid holiday to any place on earth you desired with unrestricted access – Which place would you choose?
The Bible talks about a place to which you and I have unlimited access to.
Therefore brothers since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10:19-22).
Wow! You and I have been given unrestricted access through a new and living way opened up for us – “The Most Holy Place”, where the heavens in all its glory with thousands upon thousands of angelic beings worship the Lamb who was and is and is to come (Hebrews 12:22). This is the place where “Abba” our Daddy and the sweet Holy Spirit pour out living love (Romans 5:5) on the one who rejects the fading glories of the world and labours to enter the resting place (Hebrews 4:10-11).
All this has been purchased for us by the most precious blood of Jesus (Read 1 Peter 1:18-20, Ephesians 1:3-9, Romans 5:1-2, Romans 5:9-10, Hebrews 4: 14-16, 1 Peter 2:9).
Talk about favour!
People from all over the world traveled to seek audience with King Solomon (i.e. to get one word of wisdom). We, the children of God, on the other hand have been given unlimited access to the throne room of King of Kings, the Glorious Majesty of all creation and we have no time but a few measly minutes to spent in His presence.
I can’t hold my tears when I think of all the time we waste by dancing and appeasing the world and the flesh while heaven’s throne room awaits its rightful heirs!
A Living Destination
Do we want to spend our life singing “how great is our God, sing with me” or do we want to meet Him face to face and see how great He truly is?
God doesn’t want His presence to be a ‘holiday destination’ where we visit only a few times a year, but He wants you to make it Your Home, a Living Holiday Destination where day in and day out you are fellowshipping with Daddy.
The return of the Prodigal!
All of us know that the “Most Holy Place” was a place where the Lord manifested his presence (also termed as Shekinah glory). This place was so revered and holy that anyone who did not enter according to Gods instructions never came back out alive! Then why do you think God suddenly opened the doors to this place for his children?
In short, I believe it was always his plan to hold us in His arms, hug us and reveal the depth of his love to all his children but He also needed us to be restored completely so we have boldness to enter his courts and sit on his throne. All this was achieved and completed by and through His Son Jesus who died and took our place and reconciled man to God (2 Corinthians 5:17-21). While the world and religion glories in dancing in the outer courts and puts up a performance to somehow attract God’s attention, only a son and daughter knows how to access their Father. (John 8:35-36). Calling all prodigals back to the father’s house, let’s take our rightful place. There is no performance required here as we come boldly into his Shekinah Glory by the blood of Jesus his Son.
Get the point?
We need to grow up and make sure it is fast (Hebrews 3:12-14& 12:1) for the whole earth is groaning for the revelation of the sons of God (Romans 8:21).
Let’s Invade Earth
Will you be His ambassador that will bring heaven’s desires here on earth and accomplish His will? The place that was once open for a select few has now been thrown open to All who come in the name of Jesus. We also, as Moses, can now boldly enter his presence and say “Father show me your glory”. Oh the favor that God has placed on us cannot be spoken of!! We have been given access to places of unmatched glory, power and praise. So let’s not be visitors to our rightful place but let’s invade earth with heaven’s love ruling from above. Seated with Him in the heavenly realms we can achieve far more greater than any other generation in the matchless name of Jesus our Lord and saviour.
