Deep Within

A couple of years ago, following a wonderful Sabbath service I received a beautiful revelation regarding the mercy seat in the Holy of Holies. The depth of this message was profound.  The implications of the message continues to reverberate deep within my spirit man.  I say deep because the Holy of Holies was the deepest spiritual place on the face of the earth in the Temple time.

 This message centered on the elements that were on top of the Arc of the Covenant. Two Cherubim facing each other and the mercy seat were placed on top of the Arc.  The Word says that the manifest presence of the living God would appear in between the two angels, just above the mercy seat, which was instructed to be made in Exodus 25:17.

It is such a beautiful thing that the Lord instructed us to fashion a mercy seat and that He would appear above the mercy seat, not the judgment seat, not a throne, not even a casual seat, but a mercy seat.  It says to us that God will meet us at the place of mercy.  I am so thankful that He promises to meet us at a place of mercy, as opposed to meeting us at the seat of judgment, especially as I am one who is in need of His mercy daily.  And the Apostle Paul made it very clear that we are now the temple of the Holy Spirit.  So if the Spirit of God is within us, just like He was in the temple, then there must be a place of mercy where we can go to whenever we are in need of His grace, and that place must be within our temple, as the Apostle Paul clearly illustrated. 

 It causes me to rejoice, as it should cause you to rejoice at the realization that His mercy endures forever. And no matter how many times we mess up we can trust that His mercy shall endure. 

The Word says that God would instruct Moses concerning the commandments at that place.  As we seek the Lord at the mercy seat, we can rest assured that He will guide us, instruct us, and comfort us regarding every circumstance or situation in our lives. 

 Still, like everything else, we must endeavor to enter into that place where the Shekinah glory of the Lord is ever present.  We have within our inner man access to the Spirit of the Living God and some of us fail to utilize the great mercy and grace that has been afforded to us by our precious Messiah. 

As I close with this thought, let me encourage you to take time today, and everyday, to meet with your Father, whom in His unconditional love, provided a place for you to have communion with Him. He longs for you to know Him, to love Him, and to break bread with Him in that secret place, and that secret place...deep within.  Amein and Shalom!  ~ David

As I bring this blog to you today, it is somewhat with a heavy heart, because I must bring into remembrance that I had to recently put my dog, Pepper, to rest.  He was one of my best friends.  One of the things I miss most is the way he would show affection to me, not requiring or desiring anything more than to lick my face, and let me know how much he loved me.  There were moments, I’m sure, that I was too busy doing something for him, whether washing his water bowl, or opening a can of dog food, in order to show my love for him.  Yes, there were times that I did not notice his affection towards me.
