How to Let God Incinerate Yesterday’s Sin

July 18, 2010

A Review

1 The secret of the Most Holy Place is that God’s presence is accessible to us now.

2 The secret of 1 Corinthians 13, love is the way to the Most Holy Place.

B Tonight, the secret of unapproachable light.

1 The sanctuary is divided into two parts: Holy Place & the Most Holy Place.

a In the Holy Place you smell the incense, strong smell of frankincense in the air. The aroma of fresh bread weighs thick in the room.

b By the flicker of the menorah you notice the floor: streaks of crimson stripe the floor.

aa Similarly disappear, under the veil

bb Hear a voice that says: Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh,21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,22 let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Heb 10:19-22 (NASB)

2 There is a new way inside! (Not religion, custom, tradition, doctrine, or denomination)

a Clear conscience-sprinkled clean (my guilt, my shame, my past!)

b I can have hope again!

aa A spirit of religion has chained me to guilt/ fear, but now I hope again! Sing again!

bb Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful...Heb 10:23 (NASB) I want in!

C Beyond the veil is just the presence, & nothing else is allowed.

1 Nothing made with human hands, out strength-in fact, these things must stay out.

a Every thing I’ve done to this point was to get God’s approval, love.

aa God doesn’t want things/works-He wants “us”.

bb He loves you for who you are, not for what you think you can give Him.

b All my works, all I’ve done, my “things” are not allowed beyond the veil...but I want in!

2 So, I cry out for forgiveness: “Please forgive me of my prideful/human attempts to get your approval!”

a He does! Free, forgiven! His presence overtakes you as forgiveness floods your soul.

b He calls, “Come, my child. The blood of my firstborn Son has made you clean.”

aa Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. 1 John 3:2 (NASB) We see Him, & we realize the things we’ve tried to bring into His presence.

bb Confession & repentance are different things.

cc We must lay down the things that we only moments ago thought defined us.

3 My doctrine is the first to go at the base of the Mercy Seat.

a Talents, gifts, ministry, idolatry, financial/career security...external.

b Personal ambition, greed, lust, bitterness/unforgiveness, pride/arrogance.

aa Then I said,"Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts."6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs.7 He touched my mouth with it and said, "Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven ." Isaiah 6:5-7 (NASB)
