The Presence of the Living God. Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence? Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.Cain went out from the presence of the LORD. Your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you. Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord.
Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Thou wilt shew me the path of life. I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Our Saviour Jesus Christ … hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
The way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing. He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us. The veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. The way into the holiest of Holy is opened for us to have access into the awesome presence of the true living God. new and living way…Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.
And he was afraid, and said, how dreadful is this place! This is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
And Jacob rose up early in the morning…. by faith Jacob worshiped the Lord. The times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us come together as an assembly to offer unto Him spiritual sacrifice on the ground of His sacrifice which He offered once for all on Calvary ‘s Mercy Seat. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. In thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Amen.
Every blessing for the weekend.
