Come out of the holy place: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

They “Came out of the Holy Place,”  then the Glory and the presence of the Lord was experienced.

1 Kings 8:10-11
King James Version (KJV)
And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord,  So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord.

If we aren’t experiencing the Lords presence it is because we have not faithfully, routinely, prayer fully experienced the Holy Place. 

Unfortunately, most of us will never find it, or learn  to enter. 

At the time of 1 Kings, the priests could not enter the Holy Place, (the exception, to bring the alter into the newly built Temple), but the High Priest alone, and only once a year could enter into the Holy of Holies.

Not so today:  
Hebrews 9
King James Version (KJV)
“The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:”

Hebrews 4:15-16
King James Version (KJV)
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

The throne of grace – The Holy of Holies.  Not just for the High Priest, once a year…We can enter today, we can find grace, obtain mercy, experience the presence of God.

What is the Holy Place? 

The Secret Place of the Most High:
Psalm 91:1-2
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.   I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Under the Shadow of His wings:
Psalm 17:8
King James Version (KJV)
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,”
Psalm 36:7
King James Version (KJV)
How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.”
Psalm 57:1
Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.”
Psalm 63:7
Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.”

Waiting on the Lord:
Isaiah 40:31
King James Version (KJV)
But 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.”

By Prayer and Fasting:
Psalm 35:13
But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.”
Daniel 9:3
And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:”
Matthew 17:21
Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
Luke 2:37
And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.”
1 Corinthians 7:5
Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.”

Most of us love the Lord, but life and love for others prevent us from giving our all, and receiving Gods best for our lives.

To dwell with Jesus, simply means to Take His Yoke upon us, and walk with Him.

Will you seek Him and His Secret Place?
