THE SECRET PLACE, PART 2


Matthew 6:6 (AMP): But when you pray, go into your [most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you in the open.
THE SECRET/SACRED PLACE, part 2

Remember when you first met your wife or the special lady, who was soon to be your wife? Remember how you looked into her eyes and the very sound of her voice melted butter?!! Well, this type of love is similar to the Love the Father has for us, except He has "fileo" love.

Do you look in His Eyes the same way you look at the world? We think nothing about having fellowship freely with the fickle emotions of this world, yet neglect 'RETIRING' our heart to DIRECT communication with the Father.

Jesus gave the guidelines (see verse above) for what some people call "QUIET TIME" with God. I don't! Sure, I remain quiet, but I want the SPIRIT of the Living GOD to speak LOUD and CLEAR to me! Meditation is a heart to His Heart pressing into Abba Father.

HOWEVER, we should NEVER lose sight of what caused this to be so - the Cross. The Cross was the most vulgar, obscene, scandalous and bloody evil instrument of death. Yet it is the most amazingly beautiful symbol of Love ever in Human History. Those who follow pagan religions and those so-called Christians who compromise the Crucified Christ with the world, by watering Him down to lukewarm vomit (Revelation 3:15-16) should shudder because they are not invited to the Secret Place.

It is only us, those who are called to the Cross, carry a Living Temple within us - the Holy Spirit. Would you consider taking up residence in that temple, starting now?! This is the Secret Place He spoke of in the verse!
