Unpacking the Secret Place – The Most Holy Place, Revelation, Sabbath, Tithe, Worship and PUSH in the light of Matthew 6:10 – Day 62 of 90
Friends, happy new month of December 2020 to you all – The Lord bless and keep you and satisfy you with His REST this month and beyond in Jesus name, amen.
As we enter into the last 29 days of the prayer and fasting of the 90 days program of Matthew 6:10, I sense an urgency and a need to *encourage, keep us alert and a need to understand that we are not wrestling against flesh and blood* especially when we pick up speed towards Gods defined plans for our lives, because satan always waits at the last mile when he knows our steam is dying out.
*Expect temptation, agitation, discouragement and distraction through circumstances and situation which are meant to get at your heart..perseverance is key*
May the Lord guard and guide your heart and mind at this moment as you stay in His promises. *Don’t bite satan’s bait*- that is for those who have faithfully followed and participated in the Matthew 6:10 prayers.
In the Most Holy Place, we experience things we have never experienced before. We hear things we have never heard before. We see things we have never seen before so that we can pray them down into our 5 realms – Self, Family, Church, Nation and the world.
Its an exciting place to be, because it is where God is.
This is how we begin to do things that has never been done before. For His presence is the place of revelation, understanding, protection, and power where one is released to go forth in strength, love, faith, and truth in all five realms.
Truth is dimensional in the sense that truths you live by emanate from dimensions in which you choose to live. Fish live and breathe under water, but if you take a fish out of that dimension, it will die.
God has a perfect plan for our lives with the greatest detail beyond our imagination – eyes have not seen, nor ears heard what the Lord has in store for us who love Him and are called according to His purpose and if we doubt this, read the design of Noah ark or the design and building, the code of conduct in the building of the Tabernacle, ark of the covenant in Exodus 25-40 and it will amaze how detailed God is.
Look at our world and the intricate detail God put in place to ensure our survival and sustainance on this planet. If He took the time to unbundle this planet for us with myriads of species? How on earth will He not be more precise in the details of our lives?
Once we are in God and live by Matthew 6:10, we can’t just jump up and marry the first prince charming or princess beauty that comes along.
We will first ask for clarity and go ahead from Him – We will have to hear from Him first before we proceed.. In so doing, we have given Him first place in our lives.
As Christians – i mean those who have signed covenant with Him by sacrifice that we don’t have the liberty to assume that the mission field we are currently operating in has the mark of God’s approval on that mission field without hearing from the owner of the mission on a continual bases or the career or partners we sign on with in our business. Or the project we decide to take on..
_God is as precise as precise can be in matters that concerns His project – the Human race for whom He died to deliver._
To get this detail about our lives, His plans and His kingdom, we have to PUSH into Him to dig it out. The scriptures says, *“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of king to search out a matter.”* Proverbs 25:2
Searching requires effort – relentless effort..In Jeremiah 29:11-14, we also see the seek, search clause there.. Jesus also talked about this same intensity of pursuit in *Matthew 7:7-8*
New International Version
Ask, Seek, Knock
_*7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.*_
Observe the progressive intensity with which one goes and PUSH into God..
The secrets of God are not on the surface.. It takes desire to PUSH in, going beyond a point of no return where you are abandoned in God..that is where the unimaginable happens.. In the very heart of God..there is a price tag…Jesus has paid the price but you and I have our part to agree and agree, not by mental consent but by deep rooted desire for what is in Gods heart for you and me which requires going beyond earthly, sanctimonious protocol that amount to empty noise.. God hates lukewarmness He prefers red hot desires….that was why Jesus said, “whatever you desire when you pray, believe that you have received them and you shall have them..Mark 11:24
*Note and take action: Very Important*
*_In our earthly pursuit to attain or maintain earthly success, we go to extreme length in ensuring that we cover all loose ends to attain that success we crave so badly… but concerning the matters of the kingdom that has eternal consequences, we handle with mere kids gloves…how on earth can we possibly begin to contemplate making spiritual impact that touches us and touches our world for Christ if we are unwilling to pay the price of PUSHING in? It is absurd that the only time we remember to go beyond our limits in God is when there is fire on the mountain…that shows lack of love for our creator and love for the created things.. Biblically speaking, It is called idolatry_* It breaks in pieces the code of the laws and the prophets. Matthew 22:40
Matthew 6:10 is saying YES to God’s kingdom and His plans for my life – It is a state where *I am at REST at the same time, I am PUSHING into Him and the energy to PUSH comes from Him released to me by GRACE because I have determined to have all of Him and His plans that i PUSH into my creator – His heart cry for me in the first place..*
*The story is told by Don Nori in the book – prayer God loves to answer of his trip to Italy.. Here is it – digging deeper*
On a recent trip to Europe, as we were driving through some parts of northern Italy, the fact that it was the dry season there became apparent to all of us, for most of the vegetation we saw was brown and parched. Once in a while, though, we came to spots where the acreage was plush and green, and the grape arbors in these places were loaded with big, juicy grapes.
I noticed that the villas on these properties were awesome, and their owners automobiles were very nice, as well.
Flowers were growing everywhere around their homes and in their gardens.
The contrast between these homes and properties and the homes of the people who lived where the land was dry and parched was obvious. It seemed as if the latter folks were barely surviving.
I made mention of this to my host, the driver, by saying, “Its really lucky for the guys who have water on their property, isn’t it?”
He said, “Oh, but you don’t understand, there is water underneath this land everywhere. The people who have the arbors are the ones who were willing to pay the price to dig the wells. But there is water under the whole countryside.”
I discovered that the ones with the fruitful arbors and beautiful flowers were the ones who realized the river was under the ground. They had tapped into the river of life, and because they did so, they were able to enjoy the bounty of nature..
*_Are you ready to PUSH into God today? Everybody realize the need to PUSH but very, very few dare to take the step by paying the price which He provides the needed grace for_*
*Some revelations from hanging out and dwelling in the secret place concerning matters of Sabbath, Tithe and Worship*
Jesus wants to show Himself clearly and directly, not as shadows of the past but as the real Jesus Christ. So that we can understand that those things that happened in the old testament where shadows of the real deal.
In *Hebrews 10:1 it says, “For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.”*
The reality is Jesus Himself. The shadow can only be understood when one sees the reality of Jesus.
*Lets look at the shadow called -Sabbath*
One of the ten commandments tells us to remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. This causes many people to think that if they miss church on Sunday, they are almost damned, because they haven’t kept it holy. Some even ensure Saturday is the-day- like the Normandy landing during the second world war by the allied forces.
In the Most Holy Place ( the place of Gods Presence), the Sabbath is not a day, for a day is simply symbolic of a condition of life; it is the state of the heart. It is a place of REST – a REST from our own religious labours in an attempt to gain favour with God.
The true Sabbath is a spiritual place of total trust in Him. Under the New Covenant, the Sabbath was never meant to be a day, for the Sabbath day had been only a shadow of what was yet to come. The substance represented by the Sabbath belongs to God and it comes completely from Him.
*Let’s look at the issue of tithe.*
The subject of tithe is another area that helps us to see the difference between shadow and substance. Many people believe that tithing is giving 10 percent, but in the Most Holy Place we learn that God expects us to be His tithe. When we live in God’s Presence, we understand that He wants all of us, not just a percentage. He sends us to the nations to accomplish His will and fulfill His dream. The 10 percent was only a shadow; the substance comes when we yield to Him in full surrender..
This explains why the early disciples never gave tithe..they gave as the demands or needs presented themselves because they gave themselves and every thing the had to the end that no one amongst them had any need. Reads Acts 4
There is not supposed to be a need in Gods house that God has not blessed His people to give..Is just that we are either partially yielded, not yielded at all or totally yielded and so the church of Jesus Christ continue to be plagued by needs…not just physical needs but also spiritual needs of healing, deliverance, spiritual insight, prophecy, revelation, direction..you can name it…We just hold and bury the gift into *self worth, security and significance* by building for ourselves kingdom in our names which creates walls of division amongst us and hinders Gods mandate for this times and season
*Let’s look at worship*
The same thing can be said about worship. We can sing songs, we can praise God, and we can engage in worship, but in the Presence of God, our very lives become worship to the Father.
Even our breath becomes worship to the Lord.
Let us pray together with a true desire to give ourselves to Him
*“Lord Jesus, take me to the next level in my walk and work with you according to the pattern of Matthew 6:10. Take me where You want me to go. Take me to the city. Take me to the government. Take me to the educational system. Take me to the institutionalized religion. Take me to the business world. Just take me and use me. Let your light shine forth through me into the darkness so that those in darkness will come to the light of Your saving grace..in Jesus mighty name we have prayed with Thanksgiving.. Amen.”*
May the Lord grant you strength and a staying power that prevails and avails much, amen
