Eternal life is not something you die to enter into, it is something you begin to experience from here. The Bible says, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” John 17:3. Knowing someone intimately requires spending some time with the person, we are too much in a haste and this is one of the reasons why a lot of people end up in the wrong places where they are manipulated. If you are in the habit of seeking for someone to see vision for you, it is only an indication that you are not growing. How can you grow if you are not addicted to the presence of God and if you are not allowing him to transform you from the miry clay? If you are not a product of divine encounters, there is a limit to the extent you can know God. You don’t know God if you are not a person of his presence. If you are in the spirit, it is impossible for God to refuse you. This is the confidence we have in him. When you are in the spirit, the will of God will be revealed to you clearly and you will no longer entertain any doubt. The tabernacle doctrine teaches us how to approach God and everything about the tabernacle is Christ. It is impossible for you to worship until you submit your body a living sacrifice. Rom. 12:1-2 says, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” When you do this, your will becomes united with the will of God and a powerful deliverance takes place, this is important because the will of the carnal man is united to the will of the serpent. It is the serpent’s will in union with the will of man that brought about perversion of virtually everything. In the Garden of Eden when Adam submitted his will, he yielded his will to the will of the serpent and became married; that was the union. In theology, it is called the unified intelligence; man yielded his will to the will of Lucifer and as such, man began to think evil. Acceptable worship is only possible in the realm of the spirit. Any service rendered in the flesh cannot please God.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, grant me the grace to worship You acceptably for the rest of my life; and make me addicted to Your Presence in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
