Most Christians are aware that we are living at the end of the last Church age. God has been speaking to His Church. He is saying, "I am ready to tabernacle (abide) with my people. There is room beside Me". This is not only to sit at His side in Heaven, He is meaning the here and now through prayer and fellowship with Him...which was God's desire from the beginning. That is why He made mankind in the first place.

Part of the Lord’s prayer in (Matt. 6:9-13) reads, His "is the kingdom, power and glory forever and ever…" Salvation is the kingdom,  which becomes our home when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. That happened to the disciples after Jesus appeared in the upper room and breathed upon them (John 20:22). The Holy Spirit entered them at that point. Until Jesus won the victory over death, Hell, and the grave, He did not yet have that authority. He had to rise again. Jesus is now alive...He alone is the only living god of this earth. Jesus IS God! ("I and my Father are one,"  John 10:30). God the Father is the Architect, Jesus is the Creator, and the Holy Spirit is the Power of the Godhead.

The "filled" Christian has the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 24:49 was the promise, and Acts 2:3 was the fulfillment), but we have not experienced God's glory, which only comes from sitting in His presence.

Praise on Sunday mornings is not just a prelude to the message. God tabernacles (dwells) in the midst of His praises. There is no message that can top that. We should be standing in line awaiting the church doors to open, in anticipation of a visitation from God. The doors to the church/school I attended in the 1960's were never locked. Anytime you entered the building, you would hear people at the altar or kneeling at their pews softly singing and praying. Some said they thought they heard angels singing!

God is moving and promoting those who seek His presence, above the old established religious traditional methods and “educated” leaders.  He has been doing that for years in independent churches, but now God is moving His glory into the old denominational institutions. He is calling those who are led by His Spirit, and have His anointing on their lives, and know how to lead and serve by example. Just being saved and knowing a few Bible verses isn’t enough anymore.

God gave the plan of the first Tabernacle on earth to was laid out according to the Tabernacle in Heaven, which interestingly enough, was/is in the shape of a CROSS, (which had not yet been invented). Everything God does has a pattern, and we can see them now in retrospect. (That is the way it was in the Bible times, and still is today in our own personal lives...we can see the pattern AFTER the fact).

 The Tabernacle had an Outer Court, Inner Court, and the Holy of Holies. The Outer court (salvation) is where most Christians live...the Inner court is where we see the Holy Spirit’s manifestations (power) of God, but the Holy of Holies is where God lives…and where He wants us to live.
“Come tabernacle with Me”, which means to come live in His presence.

How do we live in God’s presence? First of all, we must understand that God is a person who desires to have friends. He had those desires first…where do you think WE got those emotions? From our Father, of course. I hear the latest enlightenment from certain TV preachers…”We are to seek God’s face, not his hand”. That is even true of famous people…they don’t want friends who care about what they can do for them, but because they genuinely LIKE them. God is that way too. He wants us to love Him for Himself. God wants people He can just “hang out with".  All the stuff we need and want from God, automatically comes to us as the overflow of our relationship with Him. If your close friend becomes a movie star or gains wealth, you automatically get all the perks just from being close before they ever got rich or famous! They can be themselves with you. There is an intimacy that was developed over the years, before they were in the position of blessing you.

Christians need to pray for a hunger for God’s Presence! When this happens, you’ll find yourself doing all kinds of strange things…like spending time tarrying at the altar…staying long after church service is over…wanting to hang out with those who are like-minded...having a desire to fast and pray, and awaking in the middle of the night just to talk to the Father. That is another neat thing about God... He never sleeps (Ps. 121:4)!

God wants to overwhelm His people with His love and presence...but our Father is a gentleman. He will not push Himself on you. Like anyone with class, He doesn't just barge in...He must be invited!

Please open your heart door and invite God to be a part of your life today!

God Bless You All,
