In Old Testament times, in David’s day, the dwelling place of God was identified by the term, ‘shakinah,’ or the visible dwelling place of God. This rested on the Ark of the Covenant and remained there until the Feast of Pentecost which occurred fifty days after the Feast of Passover, the real one, wherein Christ paid for mans sins on the Cross.

From that time forward, Pentecost, when people believed in Christ the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, all indwell each believer within their soul. Your soul is now the dwelling place of God within this world, for the time being.

In ancient times people looked to the Ark for communion with God. In our day, we look to God by means of confession and therefore residence in the fellowship sphere, for communion with God. All communication with God must operate within the sphere which He has established.

To tread Gods courts, is an expression for the spiritual life.

Back then, people entered the temple grounds or approached the Ark, in order to offer their sacrifice. However, they came with hypocritical attitudes, superficial attitudes, etc. They did not come with legitimate worship intentions. It was all for show.

Today, people come before God in show and words, but not in fellowship. Therefore this is a false approach.

When people use God for some ulterior motive, perhaps to impress others, then they trample, disrespect, His sacred ground.

Living in fellowship, means that you stand on sacred ground (within your soul), and therefore have direct access, legitimate access to God. In fellowship, your spiritual life functions properly.

Out of fellowship, your spiritual life does not function, and anything you do is disrespectful toward God and unproductive for your own spiritual life.

And this is what most believers do, for this is a reference toward believers only. Unbelievers do not possess salvation, and therefore do not have any form of access to God.

Believers who are indifferent toward God, Christ, doctrine, their spiritual life and so forth, will not study, will not obey Gods mandates and so forth.

They instead approach God in a manner of their own choosing. They presumably have a better way of dealing with God. And that of course is a fools lie.

There are two sources of effort, that from within the spiritual sphere, and that from without it. Out of fellowship is operation in the energy of the flesh, arrogance, and the dysfunctional spiritual life.

In fellowship is the operation of divine energy. For it is God who controls the spiritual life, not you. It is God who gets the credit, not you. You benefit by means of His grace, and not your effort.

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
