Hebrews 8:1-13 KJV Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; 2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man. 3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. 4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: 5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount. 6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
8 For finding fault with them, he saith, 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: 9 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; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 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: 11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. 13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
It is the Lord’s desire for all to know Him. He desires to commune in fellowship with His people. The way to which we have this right to fellowship is through Christ. John 1:12 KJV But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name. This is a relationship that is in the Holy Ghost. 2 Corinthians 13:14 KJV The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. John 4:24 KJV God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The first key to unlock this fellowship with God is through the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ which unlocks the Kingdom of God. Mark 1:15 KJV And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. This is the first key to access the fellowship which is in the Kingdom of God. Amos 3:3 KJV Can two walk together, except they be agreed? There must be an alignment to God’s holy divine sovereign will.
There is a desire to know God. A deep longing, a yearning to know who He is. This desire is also looked upon by God. He is always looking upon the earth to see who will seek after Him. In these days we have the Holy Spirit at work to bring us into this fellowship. The Gospel of the Kingdom is imperative in understanding this fellowship we can have. Reading the bible is a start but there must be a desire that is moved by God. This relationship is in seeking after God with all your heart until He be found. Spiritual things are hard because we are natural beings using our physical senses. Our spiritual senses have been dulled or is dead because of sin. Anything other than the Holy Spirit access to the spiritual realm is illegal which means it is Satan’s territory. The Lord gives us guidelines in what He had spoken in the gospels.
Our life into the spiritual realm is through a door, a gate and a different dimension that starts and ends with God. This is the only right way, for the Lord, said I am the way, the truth and the life no man goes to the Father but by me. God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. We have the bible but it is not apprehended or applied in the way that it needs to be. We have been using it as a set of principles and rules to live by but not as a navigation tool to navigate through the spiritual realm. When your eyes open into the Spirit, the Word of God is activated. This is where you must learn to cooperate with God through His Spirit. Now you are living a duality in two different realms, the physical world and the spiritual realm.
God cannot have fellowship with you until you are born again by His Spirit. This is the only way He accepts you when you come into Christ. Once you are born again you will understand because you are now in the Spirit which means you are able to understand spiritual things in the light of God. Those who do not have the Spirit of God cannot understand spiritual things even if they claim to be spiritual. Good example is the talk between the Lord Jesus and Nicodemus in John chapter 3. They that want relationship with God must do things on His terms. Which is why so many do not come to the Lord, they want Him to do all the work. People in the natural state of being will never understand God. As long as Sin is alive it cannot have fellowship with God. Sinful flesh cannot have fellowship with God. Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ is the answer. You must depart from sinful life to a life of holiness and righteousness given by the Holy Spirit.
Once you give yourself to the Lord Jesus Christ and have a desire to obey Him this will start the process of having fellowship. It is your desire to walk with God. It is your answer of the call upon your life that will determine whether or not you will have this fellowship with God. There is a false repentance and a true repentance that determines whether or not you will receive the Holy Spirit. Make sure your calling and election that you may walk into the fellowship of the Spirit of God so that you can live within Him. John chapters 14 to 16 is great read here for this fellowship that the Lord desires.
Father I pray for those who read this that they may come into the fellowship of the Spirit knowing who you are. Let their eyes perceive the Spirit, hear the Spirit and understand the Spirit. Thank you Father for opening the eyes of the blind, ears of the deaf and reviving dead to the Spirit. In Jesus Christ name, Amen.
