The Holy of Holies
We are dealing with the theme “The Way into the Holiest.” Essentially what we are saying is there is a way into the holiest. Under the Old Covenant, through Moses, God gave a pattern but all that was given through Moses was just an earthly pattern of heavenly realities and truths. It’s only through the New Covenant in Jesus Christ that we can enter into the actual heavenly realities of what was disclosed only in pattern and in type and in shadow under the Old Covenant.
The tabernacle, which was a triune building, we have chosen to take it as the pattern of the triune nature of man. There were three areas of the tabernacle: the outer court, the holy place and then beyond this veil here, the holiest of all. We have likened these to the three areas of human personality: the holiest of all, the spirit; the holy place, the soul; the outer court, the body.
The obvious distinction in the tabernacle is the type of light available. In the outer court it’s natural light, the senses, sense knowledge. In the holy place it’s the light of the seven branched candlestick which we have compared to revealed truth. And in the holy of holies there is no light except the supernatural presence of Almighty God called the shekinah glory.
We have here depicted the entrance into the outer court at the bottom of the chart at the east end. When you first come to Christ you approach the brazen altar there and that’s how far you’ve come. There is a way that takes you from the brazen altar up stage by stage into the holiest, into the place where God reveals himself in his glory personally.
I do believe I can say that God showed me this is the way, it’s there, the plan is there. The map is there if you will follow it, it will take you in.
We hear so many people say, “When I came to Christ I got it all.” To me that really is absurd. It’s like standing here saying I’m there. It’s just a contradiction in terms. You’ve got the legal right to get into it all when you came to Christ. As many as received him, the scripture says, to them gave he authority to become the children of God. But there’s a long distance from receiving authority to become a child of God from becoming a mature son of God. There’s a long, long journey. So we’re taking the journey.
We’ll just briefly review the material and then we’ll take the third stage into the holiest. Here’s the brazen altar representing the cross and the death of Jesus. It’s four sides, each representing something essential for our progress. The first side, forgiveness of past sins. The second side, the taking away of sin as an evil, destructive, spiritual power. Once in the end of the ages Christ appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. The third side, dealing with the old, rebellious, carnal nature. Our old man was crucified in Christ. The fourth side, the burnt offering of total dedication, the placing of your life totally upon the altar for God.
We move on from the brazen altar to the brazen laver which was made of brass of the mirrors of the women of Israel and was filled with pure water and represents the word of God first as a mirror showing us our inner spiritual condition. Secondly, brass typifying judgment, the means by which we judge ourselves. 1Corinthians 11:31, “If we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged by God.” As we look in the mirror we’re given opportunity to judge ourselves by God’s unchanging standard.
Thirdly, it contained the clean water which signifies the word of God as a cleansing, sanctifying agent. Ephesians 5:26–27, Christ gave himself for the church by a redemptive act on the cross that he might thereafter cleanse and sanctify it with the washing of water by the word. 1John 5:6, this is he that came by water and by blood. Not by water only but by water and by blood. He came by water to cleanse and sanctify as the teacher. He came by blood to give his life as the redemptive price as the redeemer. When you come to the water and the blood, the Spirit bears witness. This is where you have the absolute assurance of moving in with God.
All that’s in the outer court, the material is brass signifying divine inspection and judgment upon everything that does not pass the inspection. Then you move into the second entrance. The first entrance we likened to Jesus, the way. The second entrance is Jesus, the truth, revealed truth. And everything inside here does not apply to Jesus in the days of his flesh, it is revealed truth about the resurrected Christ. It can only be received by revelation. It cannot be received by sense knowledge.
And in this holy place we have the three items of furniture that we dealt with yesterday. The table of shewbread. Everything inside here is made of gold from now on. The golden candlestick of beaten gold and the golden altar of incense. Gold typifies both faith and divinity. Beaten gold speaks of that which is divine by workmanship. Pure gold speaks of that which is divine by nature.
We said that the three functions of the soul are the will, the intellect, the emotions. We typified the will by the shewbread, the intellect by the candlestick, the emotions by the golden altar of incense. Bread is the type of strength. Bread to strengthen man’s heart, it says in Psalm 105. And your will is the source of your strength. It’s with your will that God begins, not with your emotions, not with your intellect but with your will.
You may resent this and I know that some will. They don’t like the setting aside of the emotions but I hope you’ll understand me rightly. Perhaps I should say this. In Isaiah 55:10–11 the word of God is like two things: rain and snow. “As the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven, so shall my word be,” God says. It’s easy to receive rain, it’s not so easy to receive snow. God’s word can be both.
I remember once driving in a Greyhound bus through the Province of Ontario, Canada, from Toronto to London, looking out on the snow covered fields and thinking to myself underneath that earth is harder than it ever was because of the snow. You couldn’t imagine that that snow was every going to help produce crops and growth and life. But a little later on when the sun gets hotter and the temperature rises, that snow will melt and they say snow water is even better to fertilize than rain water. Then it’s going to make the earth bring forth and bud.
Well, whether you receive God’s word as rain or snow depends on your spiritual climate. If you’re living in a warm spiritual climate it comes down as rain. But if you’re living in a colder spiritual climate in some seasons it comes down as snow and you say, “Well, I don’t like that. That’s hard, it doesn’t make me feel good.” Just let it lie there two or three months and when the climate changes, it’ll melt and it’ll fertilize you and it will make you fruitful.
I’m well aware that there are things that I say that don’t appeal to all Charismatics. Because, I’m talking about some things that are almost deadly words to Charismatics. Shall I tell you one word that’s a dirty word for Charismatics? Discipline. Discipline is the next item on God’s agenda for a lot of Charismatics. But it’s not one that they welcome.
And so, if what I’m saying to you today seems like snow and you feel hard and cold, don’t worry. When you get a little warmer, it’ll melt. Meanwhile, just leave it there. Don’t shovel it away, it’ll work.
See, some people consider me unemotional. You don’t know me if you think that. My problem is I’m too emotional. I’m scared of my emotions because I know how much trouble they’ve got me into in my past life. I don’t want to be run by my emotions. I want to run them. I want to come to a place where I can turn my emotions loose without restraint knowing that they’re purified and rightly directed. But if I turn them loose before I get there I’m going to have all sorts of problems. Many of you know that’s true.
So, let’s go from the will to the intellect to the emotions. God must begin with the will, that’s the place you’re in control now. Many of you cannot immediately control your emotions, isn’t that true? Emotions come over you, you don’t know how to resist them, how to change them, they overwhelm you. But there’s one place where you can begin right now, that’s with your will. You can make a decision by your will.
Don was preaching this morning on forgiveness. Don’t wait to feel forgiving. Forgiveness isn’t an emotion, it’s a decision. You see, we’ve left so much in the realm of emotion which belongs in the realm of decision. Begin to exercise your will, get the shewbread out on the table, get it lined up, expose it to the faith of Almighty God. It’s the bread of his faith. Day and night, 24 hours a day, seven days a week God demands to see your will laid bare in his eyesight. And he knows when one loaf is out of place. He knows when there’s frankincense missing from the top of one loaf.
Maybe that scares you, it doesn’t scare me. I can say I have exposed myself to God. There’s nothing about me that God doesn’t know. I’m not trying to hide anything from him. It’s a silly thing to do. I’ve willingly exposed my whole life to God. There’s nothing in me he isn’t welcome to examine. I’m not afraid of that. God, take a good look. If there’s anything you don’t like, let me know and I’ll change it. I’ll will one will with God. Many, many people make obedience sound a frightening thing. I’ll tell you what’s more frightening than obedience, that’s disobedience. That is frightening. The ends of that are disastrous.
So we present our will. It’s ground small like flour, conformed into the shape that God wants it, passed through the oven in the heat of testing, comes out with frankincense upon it, placed in order upon the table surrounded with the double crown of watch and pray. Keep your will right.
We move over to the candlestick or the lampstand which is the mind. It has to be filled in all its seven branches with the oil of the Holy Spirit. Be renewed in the spirit of your mind. Let the Holy Spirit come in and fill every aspect of your mental life and processes. Let it be illuminated. Remember that it’s the Spirit with the word as Brother Baxter said this morning. God’s Spirit never works apart from God’s word. Psalm 33:6 is the key verse.
“By the word of the Lord were the heavens made and all the host of them by the Spirit of his mouth...”
God spoke and when the word was united with the Spirit there was light. And when God’s word is united with God’s Spirit in your understanding, there’ll be light. Psalm 119:130:
“The entrance of thy word giveth light, giveth understanding unto the simple...”
And when the light comes on, it shines upon the table of the shewbread and reveals the condition of your will. That’s why some people don’t want light because light will reveal a rebellious will.
Well, we’ve dealt with the will, we’ve dealt with the intellect, we move on to the emotions. The emotions, as I understand, are one third of your soulish nature. To say there’s no place for emotions in the Christian life would be to make a person incomplete, remove one third of human personality. It’s ridiculous. But I do believe the order is significant. The emotions come third in God’s dealing with the soul. Don’t let your emotions direct you. Don’t believe your emotions when they say one thing and God says another. Don’t be the slave of your emotions. Your emotions are good servants but bad masters. Don’t let them rule you. Be ruled through your will, through your understanding by your knowledge of the word and your emotions will become like this golden altar; they’ll become four square, balanced. It has another crown. The crown that keeps your emotions in order is self-control. You don’t have to let go, you can stop it.
When you’re bringing up children, never let a child let go and have a temper tantrum. Because, a demon will come in there. But you know one problem? You can’t discipline your children till you discipline yourself. If you don’t discipline your emotions, you can’t discipline your children. It’s impossible. And you know, children are very smart to play on their parents’ emotions. They learn at about age 2 how to exploit your emotional reaction and get what they want out of you. If you don’t have a crown around this incense altar, you’ll never be stable. I tell you this, I don’t trust my feelings. Do you? What’s more, I’ll tell you something else, I don’t trust your feelings, either!
I could say a lot about emotionalism. We have a proverb in England, I suppose you have it in America, “Still waters run deep.” I’m not impressed by a show of emotion. I tell you, as a preacher I’ve learned to be somewhat cynical about emotional expressions. They’ll kiss you today and stab you tomorrow, just like Judas who betrayed Jesus with a kiss. I mean, I don’t mean emotion is insincere necessarily but I just don’t trust it.
I trust the man whose will is yielded. I trust the man who’s disciplined. A man who’ll be the same Tuesday morning as he was Monday morning. A man who makes a promise and keeps it. I like reliability. It’s one of the fruits of the Spirit, did you know that? It’s called faith. But it really should be called faithfulness. Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not belittling emotion. It’s terrific. The word I like to use is passion. It’s the strongest word I know for emotion. Jesus loves us passionately and he wants to be loved passionately. God wants passionate adoration, passionate worship, passionate dedication. But you can’t offer him that till you’re disciplined.
I heard my wife say to one of our daughters once, she said, “When I take a child in, I don’t take that child in for a few weeks or months, I commit my life to that child.” I will say of my wife, every person she’s accepted responsibility for, she’s loved them till the end.
Jesus, having loved his own that were in this world, loved them to the end. It wasn’t easy for him to go to the cross. What do you think enabled him to go through? Emotion? Will. He set his face like a flint and he went through. And that’s the kind of dedication that will get the job done.
On this altar of incense the special compound of the apothecary, the specially fragrant compounded incense was burned. It ascended up in a glorious white cloud that filled the tabernacle, a fragrant sense.
Now we come to the place of transition from the holy place to the holy of holies, from the soulish to the spiritual. The holy of holies, the realm of the Spirit. I don’t think I made that clear enough. The access through the second veil is with two things. You’ll find this in Leviticus 16, the ceremonies for the day of atonement, the only day in the year when the high priest was allowed behind the second veil. He went with the blood from the brazen altar and with a censer filled with burning coals of fire and incense from the golden altar of incense. The way to the holiest is, first of all, with the blood of the everlasting sacrifice. Secondly, with the incense of worship and adoration. Without worship I do not believe we have any access beyond the holies. Until we learn to worship we are confined in the realm of the soul. The only way out of the soulish into the spiritual realm is through worship sanctified by the blood.
Moving on now, only two items of furniture in here occupying one and the same place. The ark, and over the ark the mercy seat with the cherubim, one on each end. The holy of holies, the realm of the Spirit. The three activities of the Spirit: worship, fellowship and revelation. All activities of the Spirit have meaning only in relation to God himself. Spirit is dead unless it’s united with God. Your soul can operate without direct relationship with God but the spirit only comes alive in contact with God. When your spirit is separated from God it is dead, it is darkened, it is blind. So all activities of the Spirit have meaning only in relationship to God himself. Worship, fellowship and revelation.
The ark is Christ revealed to the Spirit. Or, Christ within your own Spirit since your spirit, in this way of interpreting it, is the holy of holies. There’s a place within you where Christ is to dwell in the Spirit. The ark in the Bible is always a type of Christ. There are two arks—two main arks, there are a few others—the great ark of Noah, the little ark of Moses. The great ark typifies you in Christ. The little ark typifies Christ in you. Both are New Testament relationships.
For salvation, you enter into Christ by faith, God closes the door and in Christ you pass through the waters of baptism which is an essential part of total salvation. It’s by the waters that you’re separated from the ungodly world and step out into a new world, a new covenant, new sacrifice, new law; that’s the most vivid picture of water baptism that I know of anywhere. Entering into Christ the ark and in Christ passing through the waters coming forth to begin a new life. Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God to walk in newness of life.
That’s the great ark but here’s the little ark which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. I’m crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I but Christ liveth in me. This is the other relationship.
The ark was acacia wood, all the wood was in the tabernacle. Acacia is incorruptible wood and it was lined both inside and out with gold. The wood typifies the humanity of Jesus, the gold typifies his divinity. A perfect combination of true humanity and true divinity. The ark contained three items. We might as well look at that. Hebrews 9:4. We’ll read from the beginning of chapter 9 rather quickly.
“Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.”
A sanctuary in this world, do you understand? Not a heavenly sanctuary but a sanctuary in this world, a pattern of the heavenly.
“For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the holiest of all; which had the golden censer...”
Let us say the golden altar of incense. You see, the golden altar of incense was here but it was for there, do you understand what I mean? It was in the holy place but it was the way of entrance into the holiest. So it was for the holiest.
“...and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant.”
The two tables of stone. Now while the ark was in the tabernacle of Moses it contained three items. The golden pot that had manna, Aaron’s rod that budded and the two tables of stone. Later the tabernacle was replaced by another building which became God’s dwelling place in Israel. What was that building? The temple. Who built it? Solomon. Now when the ark was brought into Solomon’s temple, let’s look in 2Chronicles 5 for a moment. Its contents were different. 2Chronicles 5:10. If you want to look at verse 7 and onwards.
“And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord unto his place, to the oracle of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims: for the cherubims spread forth their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubims covered the ark and the staves thereof above.”
They were different cherubims. I don’t want to go into all of this but the cherubims spread their wings right across the holy place whereas in the tabernacle they just overshadowed the mercy seat. And then verse 9:
“And they drew out the staves of the ark, that the ends of the staves were seen from the ark before the oracle; but they were not seen without. [verse 10] There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb...”
The golden pot of manna and Aaron’s rod that budded were taken out when the tabernacle ceased and the temple was built. See, the tabernacle is a picture of the church in this age: light, mobile, impermanent. Everything had staves because it had to be ready to be moved. It could be taken down, moved, reassembled in a few hours. It’s the church in this dispensation.
I hope I won’t trouble nobody’s theological corns but I believe the temple of Solomon is the church in the next age. It’s established, localized, glorified, reigning in power visibly. Now it’s reigning spiritually. And two things will be taken out of the ark then. The golden pot of manna which is the hidden manna. It will no longer be hidden. And Aaron’s rod that budded, it’ll be openly displayed. But the tables of stone always remain in the ark. There’s tremendous truth in all that, how far we’ll be able to go with it I don’t know.
The two tables of stone represent God’s eternal, unchanging, righteous law. That’s where we need to begin. There is a law in the universe which is the expression of God’s own righteousness. It is as unchanging as God himself. It’s eternal. It’s represented by the two tables of stone. Psalm 40:7–8 tells us about this law in relation to Christ. This is quoted of Jesus in the epistle to the Hebrews.
“Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.”
So the two tables of stone in the ark signify Christ with God’s law in his heart never deviating by a hair’s breadth from the eternal law of God’s righteousness.
Now, God offered those tables of stone the first time to Israel but by the time Moses got down from the mountain, Israel were already breaking the first commandment by idolatry. And in anger Moses cast down the tables and they were broken. So the next time Moses went up to the mount, God said, “Hew some more tables out and I’ll write on them with my finger.” But the second time he came he was not authorized to display the tables of stone to Israel, he was commanded to put them inside the ark. Then they were covered with the mercy seat. From then on it was a sin punishable with death ever to lift the lid from the ark. So that was the end of man ever trying to keep the law by his own efforts. He tried once, failed before the law got down from the mountain and God said that’s the end of that. From now on there’ll be another way. It’s not you keeping the law, it’s Christ in you with the law in his heart, that’s the only way of righteousness. By the works of the law shall no flesh be justified in God’s sight. Don’t go back to standing and looking at two tables of stone and saying, “God, I’ll do it.” because the devil will prove you a liar before the words are out of your mouth. It is a way of righteousness that has been excluded once for all. Never take the lid off the ark and go back to trying to keep those tables of stone.
The ark in you and the law in the ark. Christ being the ark. The reference—we don’t need to look to it—is in Deuteronomy 10:1–5.
Now, Hebrews 8:10–11 unfold this truth of Christ having the law in his heart within us. Beginning in Hebrews 8:8 God sets aside the first covenant to introduce the second.
“For finding fault with him he said, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt...”
That covenant is set aside because Israel broke it before it was even finalized. Verse 10:
“For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people...”
That’s the condition for being God’s people, that you have God’s law not on two tables of stone hanging on the wall but written in your hearts. That’s what makes you a member of God’s people. Verse 11:
“They shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me...”
The direct, personal knowledge of God. Spirit to spirit. 1Corinthians 6:17:
“But he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.”
Let me also give you another scripture. 1Corinthians 9:21. Paul is speaking about his ministry and he says in verse 20:
“And to the Jews I became as a Jew...to them that are under the law, as under the law... [and then verse 21:]
To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,)...”
Now that is not the right translation. What he says is I’m in the law in Christ because Christ is the keeper of the law for me. When Christ rules my heart then God’s law rules in my heart through Christ in my heart. But it’s not me keeping the law, it’s Christ living out his lawfulness in my heart. I’m totally dependent on Christ. Christ in me, the hope of glory.
We’ll move on to the second item that was in the tabernacle, the golden pot of manna. John 6:48–51 tells us about that manna. Jesus is speaking and he says this:
“I am the bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.”
He’s very clearly saying “I am the true manna, the true bread that came down from heaven.” And then in the 57th verse he says something very tremendous.
“As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.”
Jesus said, “I have life by my union with the Father. And the one that believes in me will have life by union with me as I have union with the Father. And in that union with me he will feed upon me. I will be the hidden manna in his heart. And on that manna he will feed day by day.”
Revelation 2:17, Jesus speaks to believers in the church and he gives them this promise of the hidden manna.
“He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna...”
That’s the manna in the gold pot there. So we feed on Christ, the manna, by our inner spiritual communion with him. Feeding on him we live by him as he lives by his union with the Father. This is the inward spiritual union with Christ within whereby he becomes the hidden manna in our hearts.
And then we have the third item, Aaron’s rod that budded. The account of that is given in Numbers 17:1–10. We will not read it now but you can look at it if you please at your leisure. Aaron’s authority as high priest and the only one with the right of entrance into the holiest of all had been challenged by the leaders of other tribes in Israel. God said, “We’ll settle this challenge once and for all. Let the head of every tribe in Israel being me his rod.” The rod was the symbol of authority. It always is. Each man wrote his name on his rod and then the Lord said to Moses, “Put the rods in front of the ark and leave them there. Go back 24 hours later, take them out.” He took out the twelve rods. Eleven were just the way they had been; the twelfth rod had budded, brought forth blossoms and complete almonds in 24 hours. And it had on the name Aaron. God vindicated Aaron’s authority.
The rod that budded is the type of authority, attestation and revelation. The name on that rod today is not Aaron but Jesus. By the resurrection from the dead God vindicated the claim of Jesus. He brought forth blossoms, buds and almonds in that one experience. So the rod is divine attestation and it comes by divine revelation. When you have revelation and attestation, you have authority. When you can say thus saith the Lord, that’s authority. It’s having been in and come out with revelation.
In most Bible schools they teach people to preach. But what they don’t teach them is how to hear. If you haven’t got anything to preach, what’s the good of learning how to preach it? If you’ve got something from God, even if you can’t preach people will want to hear you. Though that’s comparatively rare.
So we have now the picture of what’s inside the holy of holies. The three items in the ark signify the following, and I believe they must be in this order. Worship. The approach is worship. It’s by worship that we come in. Worship is not essentially an utterance, it’s an attitude. Every single word that I know of in Hebrew or Greek that is normally translated worship indicates an attitude of the body. The bowing of the head, the bowing of the body from the waist and the prostration of the whole body. Worship is not primarily praise. They can be blended together. Worship is the attitude with which you approach. Worship relates to those tables of stone. It’s total submission to the righteous law of God that doesn’t change, doesn’t bend, doesn’t deviate. It’s complete reverence in approaching God.
Again, I have to say without being critical, reverence is a word that’s hardly ever mentioned amongst Charismatics. I have a lesson that I’ve taught for a while on principles of prayer. I have seven, I thought that’s fine. Seven is the number I usually stop at. When I was preaching this summer in Oklahoma City the Lord showed me, “You’ve missed out the most important thing. You haven’t even taught the first one.” He completely readjusted my thinking and I was writing a book—I had to rewrite the book. That’s a hard thing for me to do. I had my seven principles to get your prayers answered but he said, “The first principle is your attitude in approaching God. You haven’t mentioned it.” What’ about the Lord’s prayer? It doesn’t begin with petition, it begins with an attitude. Hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. You’re bowing lower and lower before Almighty God, his will, his kingdom and his name. The first half of the Lord’s prayer is all access. Then come the petitions. Most of us go straight to the petitions without the access. It’s worship. If any man be a worshipper of God and do his will, him God heareth. This is the approach. And it’s submission to the eternal, unchanging law of God that’s there in Christ in your heart. God is a God of total righteousness.
Out of our approach in worship comes out fellowship. Without worship you don’t have fellowship. God won’t fellowship with somebody that approaches irreverently or hastily. But when you approach with worship, you enter into fellowship. You begin to feed upon the hidden manna in the golden pot.
And then out of worship and fellowship there comes revelation of the mind and the will and purpose of God. The shekinah glory illuminates this place.
As you look at this, the area gets smaller and smaller the closer you get to God. Have you noticed that? What you get here is a perfect cube actually. Ten cubits long, ten cubits wide, ten cubits high. And it’s only got those two items of furniture. There’s nothing to attract you there but God and God planned it that way. There’s something in most of us that gets rather scared the further we get in this approach. Most of us come to God for things. We want blessings, we want power, we want healing. God wants us to come to him. We don’t come into this place until we come to God for God’s sake. We approach God as God. We worship, we bow before him. We feed upon him. We enjoy him. Then comes revelation.
There’s much false revelation. I think God has made it absolutely clear to me the only way to true revelation is this way in there. You bypass any of this, you go astray, you get error, deception.
