God desires fellowship with you, and He wants you to visit Him daily in the Holy of Holies. That should be our daily destination. And as you enter His presence there is a realm of communion that will change your life forever. Pastor Benny says:
“I have known for some time that the Lord was calling me to a much deeper walk with Him. I knew He wanted a great commitment to seek Him with all my being. This is the purpose for this teaching. It is my prayer that you will find amazing intimacy with Almighty God!”
How long has it been since you truly heard the voice of God talking to you? When was the last time?
Take an incredible spiritual journey and discover God’s deep desire for intimacy with His children. Pastor Benny brings his teaching to life by illustrating the process of moving through the Old Testament Tabernacle, from the Outer Court into the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. This series includes:
When God sends you a “Royal Invitation” into His presence, what will be your answer? When we study the subject of being in God’s presence, we should always go to the source. The Old Testament gives a map for entering into His presence.
That map leads us from the outer court to the Holy Place, and then into the Holy of Holies. These three areas of the Tabernacle relate to the three realms of prayer given in the New Testament. Our Lord Jesus said:
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8).
The Lord is asking us to come daily into the outer court to make our requests known and to receive blessing from His giving, loving hands. He is asking us to come daily into the Holy Place, seeking Him until we find Him. And He ultimately wants us to come daily into the Holy of Holies, where we can experience intimate communion with Him.
This study of the Tabernacle and the Three Realms of Prayer continues by focusing on the third realm. This place, the Holy of Holies, is the place of knocking and partnership with God. God speaks in the Holy of Holies.
He does not speak in the outer court or the Holy Place. In the Old Testament, Moses had to enter into the Holy of Holies to be in God’s presence and to hear God speak. How glorious that moment must have been! It still is today, for the deepest form of intimacy with the Lord takes place only in the Holy of Holies. The key to entering this realm is waiting on Him:
“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
It is in this secret place that you begin to understand the meaning of the verse:
“Holy thy peace at the presence of the Lord God” (Zephaniah 1:7).
The Lord desires you greatly. He wants your fellowship intensely. We don’t have the capacity to seek the Lord, so He puts that hunger in us. This hunger originates with Him. The psalmist wrote:
“Quicken us, and we will call upon thy name” (Psalm 80:18).
Hunger is the sign of life in a believer. You cannot seek God until He seeks you. When He draws you to Him, you must go through the process: The physical realm is the outer court. The soul realm is the Holy Place. But the spiritual realm is the Holy of Holies.
It is where the flesh and soul are no longer in control. If you only experience the outer court and Holy Place, you will not understand what it means to enter the third realm-knocking. Get ready to discover the most amazing world of intimacy with God as you learn to knock on heaven’s door!
Exodus 13:22-33 explains the making of anointing oil. It was a very specific mixture. Each of these spices reveals who the Lord Jesus is. Myrrh represents God’s love. Cinnamon refers to God’s jealousy on behalf of His children. Calamus symbolizes the Lord’s broken heart for those who are separated from Him by sin.
Cassia speaks of a place of worship. Exodus 30:24 describes how all four fragrances are mingled with olive oil, which is a symbol of God’s anointing and presence. All are part of that fresh atmosphere that will bring us the fragrance of our Lord as we enter into deep intimacy with Him and see His true heart.
We will worship Him in a way we have never experienced.
Our Lord’s prayer to His Father in John 17:11 describes our ultimate spiritual destination through His words:
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.”
Intimate fellowship with the Lord is what transforms us into His image and brings us into that oneness. Discover the revealing truths from God’s Word about the true meaning of intimacy with Christ. Jesus is the Bridegroom, and His true Church is the Bride.
He created you for intimate fellowship with Him, and our spiritual journey should bring us into intimacy with God, into the third realm of prayer which is symbolized by the Holy of Holies in the Old Testament Tabernacle.
That should be our goal every day-to-day experience the presence of God on an intimate, continual basis.
As God increasingly pours out His Spirit upon believers today, there is going to be an amazing eruption of the prophetic.
Sharing Scripture after Scripture that reveals the various times people prophesied and the circumstances surrounding the events, Pastor Benny shares the gifts of the spirit, breaking them into three categories: revelation gifts, vocal gifts, and power gifts. He then details the four realms of prophecy and how each relate to today’s believers.
Learn to discern the thoughts of the Holy Spirit. God is pouring out His Spirit in such a strong way today, and this lesson can help build you up in the prophetic realm and to bring a word from heaven that can change your life.
We know that God has promised:
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3).
We also know that Jesus said:
“If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 18:19).
Intercession is a powerful spiritual weapon that cancels the plans of the devil against the people of God and establishes our Lord’s plan for the huge work we are called to do. Learn how to move into the ministry of intercession, and how praying for your loved ones is the door into this supernatural world!
