The 7th Step into His Presence
Now we come to last piece of furniture and the last step to Ascend up Into His Presence…
THE HOLY OF HOLIES This is where The Ark of the Covenant was
This is where we cry out Tehillah The Lord Inhabits the Praises of His People!
Look at the Word of God in Psalms 22:3 But you are holy, O You that continually inhabits (Tehillah) the praises of Israel.
When we give The Lord Praise and Worship from our hearts…
When we go up the 7 step Up Into His Presence, in The Spirit Realm, we build a Throne for God
And True Worship stirs the Lord so much that He comes to sit on the Throne we build Him
There is a powerful truth that we must understand if we want to understand God’s Glory…
Psalm 22:3 brings it to light. It says that The Lord continually inhabits (Tehillah) our praises…
There are two meanings to Inhabiting our Praises in Hebrew…
First, picture a lion crouches down in the bush waiting to pounce upon its prey. That’s what it means. Just when the enemy thought they had them The Lord sent His heavenly hosts and ambushed them!
Secondly, now picture a King sitting on his throne ready to pronounce a sentence on an offender. That’s what The Lord does when we praise Him. He sits on the Throne of Glory that our praises have built for Him and He throws our enemies into prison!
Here is battle story to where this truth is brought out…
In 2 Chronicles 20 Hezekiah goes out against a superior army. He sets the singers and musicians in front of the army and has them “praise the beauty of Holiness” and the Lord ambushes the enemy. God was inhabiting the praises of His people!
There is also another meaning to Tehillah…
The second meaning of this is that The Lord Rejoices over us!
This is when Heaven and Earth are rejoicing together!
Zephaniah 3:17 “The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will rest in his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
Let’s look at all of the Steps Up Into His Presence:
Towdah At the Gate I Will Praise Him
Yawdah At the Brass Altar I want to Praise Him
Shawbach At the Laver I’m Glad I came to Praise Him
Halel At the Candlestick I’ve caught on Fire!
Zamar At the Table of Shewbread I’ve added Substance
Barach At the Altar of Incense There’s nothing more I can do, I fall down to Worship
When we enter His Presence with thanksgiving in our hearts then we know the Lord will hear our cry!
Now the way is open to the Holy of Holies and Zephaniah 3:17 comes true!
Tehillah At the Ark of the Covenant God Inhabits our Praise and Rejoices over us!
“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing.”
The Earth Must Become Full of Glory
Remember, Jesus said in Matthew 24:37 “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall so shall also the coming of Son of Man be”.
And in Genesis 7:11 we are told that “the floodgates of the deep were broken up and the windows of heaven were opened”.
And the waters covered the earth…
We’re not looking for a flood of water to cover the earth today but water signifies “Glory” in the Word of God and The Lord does say the His Glory will cover the earth like water…
In Numbers 14:21 the Lord says: “But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.”
What the Lord is talking about is a day when the whole earth shall literally see the Glory of the Lord.
And, in Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
That’s saying that the whole earth would be covered with the Glory of The Lord!
The first time it was for destruction… the second time for Revival!
When the Church responds to the Deep of God calling to the “deep” inside of His People and they respond…
then the “windows of heaven” shall be opened and His Glory shall come down…
And the Glory that resides inside of us will be broken open and the two shall meet and the place shall be filled with Glory!
That’s what I’m looking for!
Then we will see the Manifest Presence of The Lord around us!
This is the place where miracles and healings flow like a river from the Throne of Grace.
The Glory Cloud will begin to appear in our Services and The Lord will Rest in His Love!
