RECONCILATION WITH GOD IN THE SPIRIT
The Reconciliation with God in spirit.
Many Christians are only satisfied with the judicial Redemption, thinking that this is the final goal of the Eternal plan of God, and His will.
In the meantime if we read the Bible with much care, under the light of the Holy Spirit and the revelation of the Eternal Purpose, we will realize that all work that Jesus as the son of man did here in the Earth, has as objective, that we receive the Eternal life and that we in fact become children of God. John10:10. 1Peter 1:4. Even more, this life needs to grow. Therefore to serve Him, we need to be constantly reconciled with God. God also gave us the ministry of the reconciliation in order to lead others to a deep communion with.Him.
Most of people they are satisfied only with the judicial Redemption, but they do not know exactly why they were save. By means of redemption we received God, but why we received It? All that He wants is to save us of the lake of fire? Will this be sufficient for God and us? Certainly no, because that is not the eternal intention of God. We received Him, so that He can win us in a total and complete way. We need to consider seriously: at the moment of our, regeneration we have obtained God, but what has He obtained from us? We must always ask to ourselves: "Lord how much have you gained of me?, OH Lord am I allowing you to gain me? It may not be, that I am hindering you?.
We have a function: firstly to preach the gospel, this is the first reconciliation, and later to reconcile these ones, to a deep experience with God, so that they will serve Him. In this way all time, we will have His sweet presence.
TO LIVE IN HOLY OF HOLIES.
Although the place where specifically we served to God is our soul, that is by means of our mind emotion and will. In the new testament by means of the death of Christ a new one and living way was opened, that place is the holy of all Hebrew 10:19,20, and the Holy of all, represents our spirit. A roman 8:6 commands not to put our mind in the flesh but in spirit, we do not have to place our mind in the outer court that represents our body. Allow me to clarify to those that read this for the first time this expression. The tabernacle was compose of three parts.
The outer court that symbolizes ours body.
The Holy place that symbolizes our soul.
The Holy of holies that symbolizes our spirit.
We do not have to place our mind in the outer court, in the body, the earthly things. If we do this the result will be death (V.6). More if the mind is placed in Holy of Holies, in our spirit, the result will be life and peace.(V6b) Where is the Holy of Holies? In our spirit. Where do you put your mind in outer court or in the Holy of Holies? We are looking for the well-being of flesh, or of the spirit? In order to really help people, we must be: ambassadors of Christ, to be those that represent Him, beseeching to all men that they reconcile intimately with God.
THE POURPOUSE OF THE INTIMATE FELLOSHIP WITH GOD.
Today we have a great need: to enter in the Holy of Holies, we needed to have the mind saturated by the Spirit. This happens, when we are in the spirit having intimate communion face to face with God. Then we do not have to request, no a thing. Without a doubt there are moments when we must make requests, but that moment when we are face to face with God we must have a single objective: to have a time of deep communion , face to face with God.
The following example can help us a to understand better. A marriage has two children a boy and a girl, of different ages; the boy is naughty, anxious, prefers to be playing with his friends; meanwhile the girl is calm and quiet, preferring always to be next to the parents. The boy only remembers the parents when he needs some thing, meanwhile the girl likes to please the parents playing with them or making different things with them. Which one of these two attitudes would please more the parents? Certainly the one, of the girl.
Something similar occurs between us and God: He is satisfied when we are in His presence. This is the reason by which we must approach Him; do not stop to request some thing. But contemplate Him and to enjoy His presence. We are not those that approach God only to request some thing of him, before, we have to learn to say" Lord I do not want nothing for my, the only thing that I want is to see you ,enjoy you and love you. The only thing that satisfies me is your rich person.
Only to serve God in the holy place it is not sufficient. We needed to be Holy of Holies, face to face with Him. For this is necessary to exercise. We cannot be discouraged. When we begin this experience, to expend time face to face with Him, we do attempt to request something. Simply we should ignore that fact and say "Lord at this moment I do not want to ask you nothing, I only I want is to be in your presence, Lord free me of any other preoccupation.. This is the type of reconciliation that the Lord hopes. That the glory of God will shine on us, saturating us with the same one, that happened to Moses that went to the presence of God and the glory of God plenty His face. This is our more urgent need.
The best moment to have this class of communion is in the morning. This does not mean that we will not be able to have it in others moments, but by the morning we are free of activities or any other preoccupation. It is easier to turn to the spirit. We must take one or two verses from the Bible and to transform them into our prayer to the Lord. This way, in fact we will leave the sphere of the letter, and by the exercise of the spirit, we will touch the divine life that is hidden in those verses. This will feed us all the day spiritually. All the Christians who have practiced this way of praying the scriptures, they give testimony of the great benefit that they receive.
THE AGE OF THE ESPIRIT OF REALITY
Everything that we do needs to be done in the spirit, that is to say, to have the presence of the Lord and to do everything in His presence. The reading of the Bible, the communion with other brothers, the participation of the meetings in the church and the prayers they need to have the presence of the Lord. In this present age the children of God need to live by the spirit. . In the different services of the church, in the meetings with the brothers, in the domestic activities, the work, the school, in all the things that we do, we needed to be in the spirit, reconciled with God. Today in the New Testament the glory of God do not vanishes as in the case of Moses, but 2 Corinthians 3:7-11. This unique glory, we found it when we are in the place Holy of Holies, our spirit.
