I am writing this Secret Place at the Airport in London after a successful and very fruitful time of ministry here this last week. Thank you so much everyone for praying for the whole team. We will be sharing all the the Lord did and releasing the impartation of it this Sunday. Can’t wait to pray for you.
Moses was told to build the tabernacle according to the pattern he had seen on Mount Sinai. Here in the Presence of the Lord he had seen the tabernacle in heaven. Centuries later, David gave his son Solomon plans for the temple he was to build, plans David had received by the Spirit. He too had seen the pattern for the tabernacle in His worship and by the Spirit.
Centuries later Jesus, God’s Son, Emmanuel – God with us – walk and lived among us as God’s living Tabernacle. He would often say “I only do the things I see my Father doing.” And “I only say what I hear my Father saying.” Jesus the living Tabernacle was moving, functioning and living in union with God, His Father by the Spirit, through his life of prayer.
Today, you and I are the temple of the Holy Spirit and we are told we can walk in the Spirit, be in the Spirit, abide in Jesus with His words abiding in us. We are now justified, glorified and in union with God in love, by Christ. We are now seated with Christ in heavenly places. We now are living a life of purpose and with a pattern that has been given to us in Christ before time began. So, the place to find our pattern for living, our divine destiny, our pattern for fulfillment and fruitfulness is in heaven.
To behold Christ in His fulfillment is to become all that Christ has fulfilled for us. To behold is to become who we were made to be. We were already given a “made to be” promise, word, and destiny. It is in Christ and when seen, we can become. This week as you worship behold Christ and look and see what you have been made to be. Let His words of promise become your pattern to believe, receive, expect, and do–and you become.
As your behold Christ, allow His image, and His pattern for your life, to become who you are. Receiving not striving, resting in His completed work while allowing His image to become totally infused, imprinted, imbibed, as you are saturated in His love and light. Filled with the fullness of God.
