The Holy Place and the Holiest Place: Two Different Operations entirely


Some Mormons building a replica Tabernacle of Moses
The holy place and the holiest place are both Spirit areas of the heavenly Tabernacle.
That is, there is NO sunlight. The covered area functions inside the area of illumination and revelation.
There is a distinction though between the two parts of the covered area.
Unless we “ arrive” in the Kingdom totally broken, like Mary Magdalen and the first 3000 on the day of Acts who KNEW FIRSTHAND THAT YES, they had participated in the death of God Himself....
and had to choose , either like the rest of Jews today to be offended, or simply confess their part and be born again that day.

But usually it’s too much to leave our Genesis 3 world of natural separation thinking and go straight into the Light of the Lord. So for this we have a transition stage
of accustomisation to the Lord Himself who is Spirit, and is both the Manna and the Light of His Temple.

For this we have spiritual gifts.
We have the preaching of Anointed Word, either by secondlevellers, or preferably , were there more, thirdlevellers.
We have the new knowledge that we can
“ experientially crown Jesus” in entering His Presence with praise and thanksgiving.

“ Praise waits for You O Lord”

We learn firsthand the new Psalm 123 protocols of “ waiting on the Lord”
Exchanging our strength.... both physical AND MENTAL for His strength.

Are you waiting for a “BUT”
Are you waiting for the point of this post?
For the “ you have heard it said.... but I say unto you”.

For 50 to 100 years we have learned various “ techniques” for “ rubbing the Aladdin’s Lamp”
awaiting the genie to appear.

I am NOT SAYING IT IS NOT REAL.
Jesus Himself says
if you gather in My Name there I AM in your midst

He also says in Hebrews through the writer
“For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:11-12‬ ‭KJV‬‬ https://www.bible.com/bible/1/heb.2.11-12.kjv

From the loud feisty Baptist Church ( and I began in one , so I know)
through the High Anglican pure choral sound singing the Word of God
down to Bethel’s worship

Jesus Christ in different measures is inhabiting those beautiful sounds and giving revelation and confirmation of His Presence.

So please.... as I start to topple your birds nests, don’t think that what you have been in isn’t real. I get the impression with Jim Palmer and many others that they are going one stage too far with the baby and the bath water.... And the Jesus Baby doesn’t like it!!!!

I can only describe what happened to me.
To me , on three major occasions Gods Presence came in the kind of way where
whatever you decide or say in your heart
defines your whole life.

There’s a fourth one , but that was part of my beginners package, on the day I was baptised in the Spirit.

At 16 , God came into my bedroom and asked me how far I wanted to go.
I didn’t understand theology and grace , so I said what I knew. “ As far as I can”

As you more clever people will know , it’s not up to how far we do anything.... it’s up to us letting Jesus who has done everything work things inside us according to His own power.

The next one was the corporate gathering at Harrowgate Dales Bible Week 1976, where Ern Baxter simply asked us all like Mary , not to understand how, but to believe and simply say yes to the actual Jesus Christ being birthed within us.

The final one came a bit Jacob like. Remember Jacob was so pig sick with all that had happened . ( Apocryphal books say that he’d also been mugged and robbed of all his money so that’s why he had to place himself at the mercy of fellow “ money grabber” his uncle Laban. But he was so fed up he’d chosen a rock for a pillow!!! And God turned up of all places with a staggering dream.
He called the place the house of God, Bethel.

I was angry with Emsworth church, and so puzzled that that which Id sold everything for, in terms of relationships and university... had turned out such rubbish. This was December 1987 up a mountain inNorth Wales.

God ignored my anger at Emsworth church and just said
“ what is that to do with you? Do YOU WANT ME????”

So I stepped over that Romans 12.1 freefall line so many of us have “ clumsily “ stepped over which means like the Son of Man we have no place to call our home, no place to lay our head. We are marked men.

I say this because there’s a time when eating bird food in a nest is not enough. Either you, or we as mother birds have to do you a favour and kick you out of your nests so you learn
psalm 84..... how you fly around the altars of God yourself.

There’s two sides.
You have to learn the Galatians 2.20 walk
You have to learn to move within the Shekinah glory.

But here’s the thing now
It’s not in a meeting any more.
You have to learn what it is to be taken where you don’t want to go.
You have to be placed in places where you don’t want, but inside you are conscious, hey I need this to “ add to my faith”.

You have no idea what is best for you, but God does. He KNOWS HOW TO PULL OUT OF YOUR THINKING AND EXPERIENCE EVERY LAST SHRED OF GENESIS 3 thinking and living.

Colander Living
Let me just add one final thing in the difference between
THE HOLY PLACE

AND

THE HOLIEST PLACE

In the holy place , like Bethel, you are still doing things to get the Presence of God....

but then like one of those kitchen Colanders , the vestiges of your Genesis 3 thinking and being are like holes through which the the waters of God seap out....

and so we marvel how like Benny Hinn , in order to “ keep his anointing “ the poor chap has to pray for hours a day to make up for all the holes in his colander.

The Thirdlevel is about destroying your colander altogether so that like a whole uncracked pot, you haven’t got any cracks or very few..... and your whole day like Jesus ,
is just about doing what the Father is doing next anyway.

It’s a whole different way of living and viewing things.
