“Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh” – Hebrews 10:19-20
The Old Testament Tabernacle consisted of three worship points: the outer court, the inner court, and the Holy of Holies. The general congregation worshipped only at the outer court. There is a dark veil between the inner court and the Holy of Holies. Although the smaller priests had access to the inner court, only the HIGH PRIEST could go behind the veil that separated the inner court from the Holy of Holies. The Holy of Holies was the place where the presence of God is manifest. To qualify to enter the Holy of Holies, the High Priest had to undergo certain purification rituals. Today, the Holy of Holies represents that invisible throne of Grace where Jesus, in complete atonement, continues to mediate and intercede for all believers.
Every BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS is qualified to be in God’s presence, to intercede just like the High Priest, based on our righteousness in Christ Jesus. So, we qualify to enter into God’s presence to intercede for ourselves and others. This is the intimacy that we have with God as His children.
The keyword for entering into God’s presence is Righteousness in Christ Jesus. A believer’s righteousness is the attainment of spiritual and physical purity that completely aligns a believer with his Master, Jesus Christ. Even though the blood of Jesus Christ transforms a believer and makes him/her righteousness and clean from guilt, from the time of atonement into eternity, the believer must continue to confess his oneness with Christ Jesus in complete imitation of Jesus Christ. That means that the believer must continue to live a life befitting a child of God. Most importantly, a believer must live a life of complete obedience to our heavenly father just like Jesus did throughout His lifetime (John 14:31; John 12:49; Hebrews 5:8)
Starting from today, positively transform your ways by becoming like Jesus. Imbibe good behavior and character befitting that of a child of God. When you become accustomed to living a righteous life, you will ENTER BOLDLY into a new dimension of prayers in which your heart begins to hold the precious things God imparts to you; you will begin to experience a mighty manifestation of His power which takes you to the level of a “behind-the-veil intercessor.”
When your intercession is empowered and directed from His divine presence, it will shatter the gates of hell. This is because the “effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” The word of God is telling us today to take authority in Christ Jesus and WALK THROUGH HIS FLESH into the heart of God, where the work of the flesh ceases, and the work of the heart of God begins. When you are in His manifest presence, God will show you, His glory; He will empower you and give you victory in all situations according to His will. Beloved, at this point of union with Christ Jesus, God will reveal Himself to your inner man, and you will become one with Christ, and eventually, one with God!
Father in the name of Jesus Christ, today, I stand on the authority of your word and in your divine presence, and I decree a total reversal of everything that is ungodly in my life. I am no longer the same, for I have become one with thee, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you, father. AMEN
