As New Creation’s in Christ, we are the very Holy of Holies. Under the Old Covenant, the Tabernacle of the Congregation that God had certain Israelite’s to build under Moses’ leadership, housed multiple departments: Outer Court, Inner Court (also called The Holy Place) and the Most Holy Place (also called the Holy Of Holies). The Holy of Holies is the place in the Tabernacle that only the High Priest could enter into, and he could only enter into it once per year. As with many, many other things, the Holy of Holies was a shadow of the truth, but not the truth itself. Just as the Day of Atonement sacrifice (Lev. 16) was a shadow of the true Sacrifice to come, Jesus, the Holy of Holies was a shadow of God’s true dwelling place: Us. We as New Creation’s are God’s dwelling place, are the Holy of Holies. And I love to say it this way: We are the Most Holy Place! How phenomenal is that!?! God says that we are the Most Holy Place! In John 15, Jesus tells us that He, the Father and the Spirit would make us they’re abiding place. The Godhead doesn’t just kind of generically “live in our heart”, but He actually, literally, dynamically abides, lives and interacts in and with us!
Most of the entire religious world, including Christianity, approaches fellowshipping with God from some aspect of: “I need to try to get close(r) to God.” I myself used to have this mindset. I have spent countless time in reading the Word, prayer, praying in the Spirit, confessing the Word, fasting, reading good Christian books, serving, and other religious activities all in attempts to somehow get closer to God. Now, let me say, no time spent consciously fellowshipping with God is wasted time. Even though you can burn and wear yourself out when you approach fellowship with God from this mindset, there will still be some growth and benefits from it. I’m not encouraging dead, religious works, but simply encouraging you that even in our religious states, there can still be some benefits. Now, the Good News is, we can indeed be set free from approaching fellowship with our loving Father from the foundation of dead works and vain attempts of trying to get closer to Him, and enter into the intimate fellowship that so freely awaits us. This is very much so part of the Good News of the Gospel. Jesus not only paid for our total forgiveness, but He also made all who put faith in Him the very abiding place of God.
Now, 1 Cor. 6:17 says: “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” That verse has unimagined power in it! We are not getting closer to God, but we are as close to God as God is to Himself. We are as interwoven into the Trinity as the Trinity is! It is absolutely impossible to be closer to God as you currently are. You cannot get any closer to Him, it just simply cannot be done. There are many catch phrases in the Body of Christ today. One of the more popular ones is that you can be “out of fellowship” with God. This preaches really good, and our thoughts and emotions will try to reinforce this to us, but the reality is that the phrase “out of fellowship” is never found in the entire Bible…not once…at all…ever…period. As a matter of fact, 1 John 1 tells us very clearly that truly our fellowship is with God and that because of the ever cleansing blood of Jesus nothing can break that fellowship. Just think of how much teaching that you can now disregard. Just think of the ramifications of this truth! How wonderful it is to know that we are one spirit with God. If sin could separate you from God, then sin could separate God from Himself, because “He that is joined unto the Lord is ONE spirit. We are not merely two connected spirits, but we are actually one spirit with Him! Hallelujah! So, every day, every moment, every second, all the time with no exceptions we are inseparably one with God. So, this truth has been absolutely transforming me and the peace that I walk in on a daily basis, and it has been the main truth that I have been feeding on and growing on for the last several months and I felt that it was important to share with you. I encourage you to let this truth sink in and become unshakable reality to you. I plan to say more about the implications of this in the future. But for now, enjoy the fact that your fellowship with God is truly and unbreakable fellowship!
