“Glory to the Precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
Psalms 92: 13
Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
We, the bride, the church should dedicate ourselves for the Lord.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the portion of the Bible that we meditated upon in the past days, we meditated that from within us, the bride, the church Christ is interceding and praying for us.
Next what we are meditating upon is that in 2 Chronicles 7: 1 – 4 When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.
And the priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house.
When all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord on the temple, they bowed their faces to the ground on the pavement, and worshiped and praised the Lord, saying: “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever.”
Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the Lord.
In the above-mentioned verses, when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. And the priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house. Also, in 2 Chronicles 7: 5 King Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty-two thousand bulls and one hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
According to the above-mentioned verse they dedicated the temple of the Lord.
My dear people, dedication of the temple of God means it is given as a pattern. That is, how we should dedicate ourselves for the Lord explaining and showing this. We, as the temple of God if we manifest within Christ with glory then the sacrifices which we should offer to the Lord like praise, thanksgiving when we offer with a truthful heart then the Lord will accept us, and he will fill us completely with glory. In this manner, when we are filled with the glory of God fire from heaven will descend into our soul and his glory will dwell within us and when we see this then we will fall down prostrate and bow down and worship him and by the good things that the Lord has done for us in our life from within us the sound of praise will be heard that “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever.” By the sound of praise that we are praising the people when they offer sacrifices in the presence of the Lord then those who are made as the temple by the Lord will be dedicated for the Lord. In this manner each one of us should submit ourselves to be dedicated for the Lord.
Let us pray. May the Lord bless you all abundantly.
