Scripture reading: Song of Solomon 4:16

When I was a sinner, I had a problem; it was a devil possession. I could sit down very quietly and not say anything and you could provoke me, provoke me, and provoke me. But if I felt a movement that came right up through my head and went down the other foot, you were dead. I just lost it completely. Oh, yes! When I would lose it that way, I was in another realm where I thought I could do anything. I was conscious of what I was doing, but I couldn’t stop myself from doing it.

What I have noticed is that there are avenues in your soul that control different parts of your body, like how the brain on the left side controls the motion on the right side, and vice versa. God has so created man in a peculiar way. Remember that man is the temple of the living God (I Corinthians 6:19). Do you notice that in His temple, they have put certain things at certain places? If you wanted to eat bread, to feed on Christ, you would have to go to the right-hand side, where the Table of Shewbread is. If you wanted to light the lamp, you had to go to the left-hand side. If you wanted to burn incense, you couldn’t just start burning it anywhere in the temple. You had to go straight to the Altar of Incense. Now, YOU ARE A TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD! God has placed certain things in you. There are certain parts of your mind that God is opening up that were never opened before. The more you go into God, the more He opens up your mind. 75% of your brain is not being used. Hallelujah! Can you imagine if God touches you and all of a sudden your brain starts working? What would happen to you? We couldn’t stand you. We would probably chain you and say that you had gone crazy.

One time I was sitting at the table with this brother. He weighed 250 pounds, bare muscle. I mean, no paunch, no nothing, just a solid man. He was the biggest man that I had ever known. He had big hands that came down to below his knees. This particular day, we were sitting down at the table eating, and all of a sudden he said, “Get out of here! Get out, I said!” He jumped up and ran around the house! We were sorry for the brother. He was seeing every demon that walked across the place. What a terrible situation it would be if you could see all of those devils. What would you do? What do you think about Jesus? Do you think that He was seeing them? He stood up and said, “I am the Son of Man who is in Heaven” (John 3:13). He was standing right there and yet, He said that He was in Heaven at the same time. He was moving on all planes at the same time. He was moving on a heavenly plane in that He could be in complete contact with the Father while He was talking to you, He was seeing you, He was seeing your condition, He was seeing your business, and He was seeing what you are going to do tomorrow while He was talking to you today. His brain was different from ours. He was OPEN TO GOD.

Adam had an experience with God and he found out that there was a certain point to which you could go with God but you couldn’t go beyond it. If you stepped beyond that point, you would be changed out of the natural world. He must have been to that point. I remember that I had an experience with Jesus where I was walking with Him in a garden. He came to three little steps and stepped up these steps. When I was about to go up after Him, He said, “No, no.” I believe that Enoch was allowed to walk up those steps and went away. When He said to me, “No,” I responded, “But…” Then He said, “NO! Turn back.” When I turned back, He came right into me, and I began to speak in Hebrew. Do you know what that means? He does not just want to walk with us and talk with us, but He wants to walk in us and talk in us. Then He will be our God and we will be His people.

When you are in your private time with God, press Him. I am challenging you. I am setting you up. Press God to come into you. Ask Him, “Why won’t You come into me in Your fullness? Why won’t You take the areas of me that are blocking You? Why don’t You take it? I give You all authority to take these areas. Come into me!” Challenge God! Hallelujah!

You see, one scripture says that it is the time of the singing of the birds (Song of Solomon 2:12). The scripture also says, “Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits” (Song of Solomon 4:16b). She was inviting Jesus Christ to come into her, and eat of the pleasant fruits, the fruits of the Spirit that were in her. Hallelujah!

Scripture reading: Jeremiah 31:33

The promise of the fathers is the great promise that God has made. The most beautiful thing is that God made this promise to Israel, and when the church came, He made the same promise to the church. The church is Israel and Israel will be the church in time to come when God will show them His special favor.

Jeremiah 24:7, “And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.”

Jeremiah 31:33, “But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

Jeremiah 32:38, “And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.”

Ezekiel 11:20, “That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.”

Ezekiel 37:27, “My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

Zechariah 8:8, “And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.”

2 Corinthians 6:16, “And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

This indeed is the promise of the fathers, and it is abundant throughout all Scripture. God gave these promises to Israel at first, and then the Israel of God came to fulfill and inherit these promises. Many of the promises that were given to the people in the Old Testament were not understood. They did not understand how all these things would be brought to pass, and they desired and longed to understand it, but God told them it was not for them but for a people that should come.

We see the Lord giving this promise over and over and over again. Hebrews 8:10, “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.” The Spirit of God through Paul was quoting this to the Hebrew brethren. Now this was part of the church; this was not part of ancient Israel. We are talking about a promise being brought from the Old Testament to the church. If we could get this one thought in our hearts, then it would be a step forward to understanding the Word of God; because all that God promised, all that God did, all that God said in the Old Testament is pointing to the New Testament, to Jesus Christ Himself, and to Jesus Christ IN the church. We find then two manifestations here: Jesus Himself and Jesus in the church. This is the promise that God gave to His people.
