HOLY EMBRACE *A Revelation of GOD'S Grace*

‘So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.’ – Numbers 9 vs 16
Hello Dearly Beloved in the LORD JESUS. GOD continually wants us all HIS Children to know how much HE is all around us, Loving us and guiding us. Be refreshed in JESUS Name. AMEN.
Our opening passage reveals a strong Truth. It’s talking about the Tabernacle of the Old Testament which was among the children of Israel in the wilderness, the Bible tells us there that the cloud covered it by day, and there was an appearance of fire over it by night. Question, who is this cloud, who is this fire? It’s simple, the cloud and the fire speak about the Holy Spirit, they both speak of the Presence of Jehovah GOD. Do you know that all that was a shadow reflection of what would be in the upcoming dispensation which is the dispensation of CHRIST? Hebrews 10 vs 1 tell us that the Law had a shadow of the good things that was to come. In other words, all the activities that were carried out under the dispensation of the Law were a shadow of the dispensation of Grace that was to come of which has come and we are today a partaker of it. Hallelujah! What a privilege to be in such a dispensation where JESUS is everything. O Glory! What Joy my soul is made to bear! Thank you JESUS. Now do you know that in the dispensation of Grace, we who Believe in JESUS are that very tabernacle of GOD? See this;
‘A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.’ – Hebrews 8 vs 2 {KJV}
You see that? It made mention of the True Tabernacle, and He says that the LORD Himself pitched it not man. That speaks of us, GOD through the sacrifice of HIS Son JESUS made us a Holy Tabernacle. The Bible informs us that our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost {1 Corinthians 6 vs 19}. Now this is the same Holy Ghost that came upon the first tabernacle as a cloud by day and as fire by night. This is the same Holy Ghost still dwelling in HIS Tabernacle today; but this time, it’s not a tabernacle of bricks or of stones or shittim wood, but a fleshy tabernacle. So this new tabernacle still experiences that same Glory as of old. Wait a minute; are you thinking what I am thinking? How do you think our lives should look like? Since we are the Tabernacle of GOD, HE clouds over us by day and Lights over us by night. What a Holy Embrace, what protection, what Glory we have been called in to experience. – Selah
Let me show you something. For every temple or tabernacle as it were, there is of a necessity a Priest that attends to the sacraments of the temple thereof, of which there is a high priest that attends to the most sacred duties. Now see these powerful scriptures;
‘But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
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 9 vs 7 – 8 {KING JAMES VERSION}
‘But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building…’ – Hebrews 9 vs 11 – {KJV}
Did you read the above Scriptures? We were made to understand from the verse 7 that there was a first tabernacle. And it makes use of this phrase ‘while as the first tabernacle was yet standing’. In other words, it has fallen, but it once stood. Uhmmmm. Now verse 11 tells us of a greater and more perfect tabernacle, and that speaks of the second and the new Tabernacle, and it says that this tabernacle was not made with hands like the first was. Exodus 33 vs 7 says ‘And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp…’. But Hebrews 8 vs 2 says ‘A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.’. Wonderful. So you can see two big differences.
Hallelujah we are the Tabernacle of GOD, HIS Glory is upon us day and night; we have been wrapped up in a Holy Embrace, HE embraced us with HIS Presence and Glory, an embrace that never undoes. 24/7 a day, 365 days a year and 366 days a leap year we are in HIS Presence, covered up completely in HIS Spirit, Oooo do you understand? Waow. And you know what? See this;
‘For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.’ – 2 Corinthians 3 vs 11 {KJV}
Hallelujah! This means the intensity of HIS Presence and Glory over us (HIS New Tabernacle) is even Higher than that which came upon the first tabernacle. Glory to GOD.
You can imagine the kind of life the Believer has been called to live. It’s a life of Glory and Power, Splendor and Beauty. O Hallelujah!!! What an embrace, a Holy embrace.
GOD Bless You.
