Now God dwells within you Part 2

The sound of a trumpet is a call. Nonetheless, they did not discern that it was not just a mountain (Mount Sinai), but it was the mountain of the Lord (Mount Zion). ‘’For you have not come [as did the Israelites in the wilderness] to a mountain that can be touched …’’But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels [in festive gathering].’’ – see [Hebrews12:22]. Therefore, today when you hear this message, do not harden your hearts.
[Isaiah 58:1], “Cry aloud; lift up your voice like a trumpet.” – We learn that a trumpet in this case does not necessarily mean a physical instrument that is to be used to In order to make this particular call. For when God speaks, it is like a sound of a trumpet; thunder – a voice (God uses such characters to describe Himself). This is what they actually feared, this very voice of God. Let us be careful not to postpone paying attention to His call as many do, because if we do, we would be saying that God never spoke.
This is some language, calling many saying ‘Come’ to the position, place where God is situated. In [Revelation 22:17], it says, ‘’The Bride and The Lamb says, Come!’’ Whenever a message is being preached, note that it is a trumpet that is blown. This is not something that happens once, but it happens on every opportunity the Word is spoken.
[Revelations 4:1], ‘’after this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard, like the sound of a [war] trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” We hear of the sound of the trumpet after the Pentecostal, and this is after the Holy Spirit has come upon the disciples. John wrote in [Revelation 1:10] about hearing the trumpet while worshiping in Spirit, but this was without completion, hence He saw a door standing open for entrance.
Having said that, you can be filled with the Holy Spirit but not be with God. The feast of the trumpet is a matter of going wherever He is, ‘’COME UP HERE!’’ Therefore, whatever is pure, noble, and praise-worthy set your mind on it, for when your mind is set up, you just do not become filled with the Holy Spirit but you are entered in the very place where He is centered.
The trumpet was all along calling the Israelites to a place, however, the time is up for a geographical place (Prayer Mountain) of worship, for you can worship wherever you are positioned. For we are citizens of heaven [it is about where our minds are set]. As we hear the Word, we come to where it is centered. And just as in [Matthew 24:40], ‘’…one will be taken and one will be left…’’ – this is rapture.
[Acts 9], three things happen to Paul:
1. He is hit by lightning and thunder [The voice of God].
2. When he fell to the ground, his mind was caught-up.
3. He then believed (converted), and wanted the Lord to reveal more of Himself. Hence, he called to Him as, “Lord.”
Those who were with him heard the voice but could not see anyone, yet it was only him who was caught up. The experience of a call of a trumpet (sound; speech of God) is not an incident for a collective; it is not for many, but it is a personal matter. After the blowing, he lost sight.
When you read in [Leviticus 23:27], ‘’Also the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble yourselves [by fasting] and present an offering by fire to the LORD.’’ In this Day of Atonement, there is affliction of the soul, and this affliction is not sin. At this point, God deals with the soul; his weaknesses that nobody knows anything about. Paul suffered what nobody knew anything about, losing sight and not everyone knew, only Ananias. No one could see the scales in his eyes; the moment Ananias laid his hand upon him, they fell down.
Without atonement, we will not reach perfection. Now it is no longer the matter of sin, nor separation of sheep from wolves but of sheep from sheep – atonement. It is only the Father or the High Priest who inflicts this atonement. When you are caught-up in the Spirit, there should be separation starting right from within, even when such, is not in the bible, as a sin that is to be dealt with. However, one still separates himself from within. When you have reached this level, you do not ask ‘’Where is it written in the bible.’’ Nevertheless, comply with the Spirit. Do you see how deep salvation is? It is not only a matter of sins forgiveness of sin. You need to go deeper, and become caught up.
Moreover, this causes you to be a prisoner& be no longer concerned about the things of world, even though there is no sin in it. Paul was a tent-maker and made money, but he chose to stay in jail in order to preach the Gospel. His ministry was in jail, without prison there was no life for him.
Let us now explore the Tabernacle. [John 14:2], “In my Father’s house there are many mansions, but if it was not so I would have told you.” Whatever came after this statement, it was not compulsory to be stated. What am i saying? The place was already prepared, yet today people are preaching about a place that is still to be prepared. There was no preparation needed, the Son was already prepared as the place. [John 17:21], ‘’…that they all may be one; just as You, Father, are in me and i in you.’’
The Father is in the Son and the Son [Christ] is in the Father. We have received Christ, the very same Christ who is in the Father and the Father in Him. Therefore, we have the tabernacle in us. Moses was told to build according to the pattern that he has seen. Nonetheless, it was time for the real Tabernacle to come in the picture (the Son); Christ.
Christ left the grave to dwell in you. After you have been caught up, the Kingdom becomes in you, and the Father can prune and be pleased. After this, you are capable to say, ‘Come’, calling many to yourself. The true tabernacle of God [glory] is within us; Christ the Son. Hence, in these tents, we carry a treasure – light [see 2 Corinthians 4:7].
[Isaiah 6:1], the day King Uzziah died; Isaiah saw the Lord and the train of His robe filling the temple. This train has a head, which is caught-up in heaven, and at the same time, filling the temple. This is not future based! it is now! There is a loud trumpet, saying, ‘’COME!’’ The coaches behind the train head become one and enabled to say, ‘’COME!’’. We have been caught-up! Isaiah knew that he was not part of this, but a coal from the train was placed on his lips (cleansing), and he prophesied from above. Just like Jeremiah, it became as fire shut up in his bones. God is in us!
Where do we eat when we are caught-up? We eat above! Therefore, perfection is having reached the highest standard of Christ. We are all submitting to one another, there is no one greater than the other, no more gender, for we all carry the image of the Father!
