The incredible reality of the Slain Lamb entering the Temple of God in heaven, is what is being meditated upon today. Join us. May He take us all further into His realms of His glorious house.
While pondering where Holy Spirit wanted us to land our viewing lens today, Revelation chapter 1 kept on presenting itself. While sharing this with Ruthie Young, it was clear that the repentance and healing which took place on last night’s call was preemptive, as we now venture towards He who is holiness. Let me explain. This week all over the world, celebrations have begun in remembrance of Christ’s death and resurrection. Today, April 14th is the day of His entrance into Jerusalem (Betty Love will bring decrees regarding this on tonight’s call.). For our Jewish family and all those who follow the Messiah, Passover begins April 19th.
I’d love to invite you into this mediation with us. It seems to be where He has me pinned in His Glory for now. “Poetical” in nature, of which I often attempt, allow me to share this with you.
Three tabernacles – One home.
The first, the temple in Jerusalem
Then second, God’s temple in the heavens
The third, the tabernacle of our hearts.
Within a short span of time Jesus visited each of these houses,
all due to His identity as Slain Lamb and High Priest of God and our hearts.
It is Jesus in whom all things hold together.
Through His blood and resurrection
we have the profound privilege of inviting Him in.
Through His blood and resurrection
we’ve received the invitational gift of walking through The Door into Father’s House.
Before this could take place ‘He – Salvation birthed’ was now presenting Himself to the Father, whose love groaned with longing.
Father’s wrath against darkness was now fulfilled. Can one imagine?
Son’s obedience was now perfected. Father and Son now face to face.
Sacrifice ready to be accepted into the highest heavens.
His life/soul blood to be secured in a disclosed location,
available for all generations into eternity.
Right before Jesus encountered His Father, here on earth in the city of Jerusalem something else occurred. Not far from where Jesus, days earlier, had entered through the gates of the temple riding on a donkey Mary Magdalene now stood weeping. She was afraid Golgotha’s gardener had moved her Messiah.
Mary, delivered of seven demons and a close friend to Jesus, encountered Him. Alarmed and relieved she called out to her “Rabboni,” and leaning into Him desired to embrace Him with love. Jesus responded to her with,
“Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father;
but go to My brethren and say to them,
‘I ascend to My Father and your Father,
and My God and your God.’”
He needed to take one more journey. Between the time of encountering Mary and visiting with His disciples Jesus stood before His Eternal Father. He who is God – Adonai – Elohim – the I AM! Can we imagine the reality of this?!? Let’s stop and ponder this.
What an incredible entrance into heaven’s tabernacle!
What an incredible reunion!
What magnificent splendor!
The High Priest of Heaven had returned to present His offering to the One who Is!
The High Priest of Heaven was endowed once again with the fullness of Resurrection’s power.
The High Priest of Heaven’s offering of self was cut in two (the Veil – the Door);
creating the path of the Highway of Holiness, for all to travel into the heart of God the Father.
There He stood before His Father.
What was the sound of the Lion of Judah like in this moment?
What was the sound of gratitude like exuding from Father towards His Son?
What was the expression of Son to His Father?!?
Lord of the Highest heavens!
Lord, Highest Praises!!!
You are worthy, O God!!!
Be enthroned on the praises of thousands of generations!!!
The birth of Salvation:
It was with the deepest travail and groanings of Christs’ Spirit, Soul, and Body with which He birthed salvation. What a sound of silence in the earth world. But oh, what a sound of travailing victory echoing from the heart of Father.
The earth shook.
The heavens opened.
The rains poured.
The sun hid itself.
The lightnings struck the earth.
God’s lightnings of Justice tent pegged into the earth – the Cross!
“The Lord will go forth like a warrior,
He will arouse His zeal like a man of war.
He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry
I have kept silent for a long time,
I have kept still and restrained Myself.
Now like a woman in labor I will groan,
I will both gasp and pant.”
Messiah our Priest, now the Door into the Tabernacle of Heaven. The work was finished. Born through the womb of Christ was the answer to creations agony. God, Our Salvation. Dread Champion of Heaven and Earth. He is God.
His appearance so magnificent that John (the one whom said of himself, “The one whom the Lord loved”) fell to the ground having lost all strength. Yes, the one who knew Jesus seemingly so well could not recognize the transfigured Christ. It is this King, who yearns for us to draw near to Him. Face to Face.
On this Palm Sunday, may the lens of our hearts shine due to the nearness our King.
To behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!!!
Meditating right along with you.
Thank you for joining our Priest, God, Shepherd, King, and His family at His table of remembering’s.
Looking forward to our time tonight on Facebook Live at 7:30pm Central time. Look for Priscilla Zananiri on FB.
