Anyone who seriously desires to see the face of God must live above the appetites, such a person must live a fasted life. During the period of one on one with God, it will get to the stage where your heart desire will just be to be in his presence, to see him face to face. Daniel saw the end of the matter in his days, “But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days” (Dan. 12:13).
If you follow the path of purity, there is no way you will not end in heaven. Whoever encourages you to tolerate sin under the guise of grace does not have an in-depth knowledge of the Bible. The Bible states categorically that without holiness, no one can see God. You must have a zero tolerance level for impurity and defilement. I detest it with all my might. This is because if you happen to operate the deliverance ministry and dare tolerate defilement, you are finished. Every corruption that is in the world, works as a result of lust. God will energize you.
The way to get it right is to understand the intricacies of the operations of the kingdom of darkness and the little things that people tolerate (the little foxes that spoil the vine). You must define where you wish to be – if you want to be a gatekeeper, so be it. If you want to be a worshipper in the court – that is outer court Christianity, it is up to you. That is where a lot of believers are anyway. However, if you really want to see God, you must have to go beyond the holy place into the holy of holies. You have to do a lot of ablutions – the washings, the cleansing, the blood and different levels of purification.
The glory is not found on the surface or in the outer court, it is found in the holy of holies. That is where we should desire to operate from. Anything that lowers the mark for you is your number one enemy in this end time. Any preaching that allows you to live anyhow is not helping you. A lot of people flock to places of worship where they are being cajoled because they don’t want to hear the truth. They prefer to live like pigs during the week and then cover themselves with beautiful garments on Sunday morning to attend service. You cannot perfume defilement. You cannot deodorize evil because evil has a natural stench that sinks.
Anything that is defiled is way down and works in line with the law of gravity. This, you need to understand. Working in the deliverance ministry opened my eyes to a lot of things and I sometimes wonder whether other people notice what I notice. All that glitters is not gold! Many people have very little spiritual understanding and as a result they fail to prioritize spiritual things. You cannot lift anyone beyond the level that the person wants to go; not even Jesus could do it. Press in into the holy of holies; that is where you behold the glory. It is from there that you can get the scent of heaven and you will become unstoppable.
Remember that those who want gold must have to dig deep because gold is not found on the surface. Away with surface to surface Christianity! Desire to set your heart to seek the face of God and you will find him. When you find him, everything down here will seem like toy. When you see people who want to kill themselves because of toys, you will marvel. They do that because they have never scented the fragrance of heaven. They do read about heaven but don’t really believe that it exists.
Eph. 3:14– “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.”
- Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I ask that you fill me with all the fullness of God.
- Grant me grace to be strengthened by might in my inner man. That Christ would dwell in me richly that I become rooted and grounded in the Lord, Jesus Christ in the name of Jesus.
- Father, fill me and consolidate my love for you. I ask you to consolidate my love for Jesus Christ, your eternal Son in the name of Jesus.
