ENTERING GOD’S PRESENCE!


ENTERING GOD’S PRESENCE!
Today my friends, we are looking at what the Bible says about coming into the presence of God. Psalms 15:1; 27:4; 43:3; 65:4. PSALMS 15: 1Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 27:4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. psalms 65:4Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple. We find God’s presence in His Holy Temple. The following verses tell us it is a privilege to enter into His presence. Deut.4:7; Psalms 23:6; 24:3-4. Psalms 24:3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. Deut.4:7For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? Psalms 23:6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. The Bible tells us that we can enter His Presence with confidence and boldness. Eph.3:12; Hebrews 4:6; 10:19,22. Eph.3:12In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Hebrews 4:16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. 10:19Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
We can obtain a relationship with God through His Son Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit by faith. [ Acts14:27; Romans 5:2; Eph. 3:12; Hebrews 11:6.
Acts 14: 27And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles. Eph.3:12In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Hebrews 11:6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Our access followers our reconciliation with God. Col.1: 21And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled.
22In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: We have access by prayer. [ Deut.4:7; Matt.6:6; 1 Peter 1:17 ] Matt.6: 6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 1 Peter 1: 17And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

Hebrews 10: 22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. This concludes our brief look on what the Bible says about entering the presence of God; I trust you have been blessed my friends!
