God describes the Holy of Holies, the Tabernacle, the Temple where the Holy Spirit dwells. God sent the Holy Spirit to dwell within us. Through every open mouth that confessed Jesus as Lord, inside every heart that believes, the eternal treasure, more rare than the finest ruby, more prized than all other riches, God placed His Holy Spirit. We must value the invitation to come into the presence of the King, as we "BE STILL" and listen for His voice! In the book of Esther, after Queen Vashti refused the King, he dispatched a royal decree across the land, in every language, that women will respect their husbands. (If we are the chosen brides of Christ, then our husband is Jesus!) From the least to the greatest, all women should honor, and willingly submit to God. In the book of Esther ---the King conducted a search for "someone" to fill the royal position of Queen in His palace. All women selected, set apart for the King, had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments. Six months of bathing in oil of myrrh, and six months with perfumes and cosmetics. Anything she wanted was given her, to take with her from the king's palace. Do not think that because you are in the king's house, (that we go to church) that we will escape annihilation. For if we choose to remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the condemned will arise from another place. "And who knows but that we have come to royal position for such a time as this." Esther 4:14 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.' Biblical sholars tell us that FUTURE in HEBREW means: AFTER, LATER, BEHIND and FOLLOWING! In God, our past and our future share the same root! That root is Jesus, and when we are in Him, our past is not a blight on our record, our past is what Jesus takes control of when we surrender it, and our Lord, Yaweh, Jehovah God turns our history into a God granted DESTINY! We are humbled by history, and we must learn from the What has God prepared you for in 2010? If we are SILENT at a time such as this --- what will be the consequence for your loved ones? For people who never knew their Creator, but they stepped into eternity without Him as a result of a psunami, a hurricane, an earthquake or by their heart stopping? God's personal wake up call or the worldwide wake up call of the economy crashing in 2009, or the Twin Towers crashing on 911, Katrina, the Dec 2009 Haiti earthquake, the Feb 2010 earthquake in Chile. Regardless of a political party or a presidents name, we each have a purpose for knowing God Almighty, and it is our TIME to become as brave as Esther and speak out NOW! Are you listening to what the Spirit is saying?
