The Secret Place Part 5: Prophecy Fulfilled

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 12:

12 Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.

2 Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.

What better way to worship Our Heavenly Father than to live each day in holiness.  Some people simply “talk the talk” but we are to “walk the walk”.  As we emulate the walk of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we are achieving the highest form of worship.  Our actions correspond to our words.

Our culture would have us conform to its confused state and take on a compromised life.  If we are lax in renewing our mind, then we will be subject to the world’s way of thinking.  Our transfiguration comes through the renewing of the thoughts of our minds so we should endeavor to enter into the Secret Place each day for this will anchor our soul.  This act of submission establishes the preeminence of The Holy Spirit over the world’s alternatives.  As the saying goes, “We become like the company we keep.”

With whom do you want to be associated?  Men and women across the globe express their desired associations by their words, acts, and decisions.  In America, sports figures are often imitated by the young, hoping that they will someday take on their winning characteristics.  What lasting impact will they have on society?

Throughout the Old Testament, the prophets declared the coming of Christ that we should not be caught unaware of His arrival and critical ministry.  There have been no greater Words expressed than those of Jesus Who spoke directly from FATHER.  Did Jesus prophesy and if so shouldn’t we take His prophecy even more serious than those who are prophesying today?  Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:

15 “Loving me empowers you to obey my commands.  16–17 And I will ask the Father and HE will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like me—and he will never leave you. The world won’t receive him because they can’t see him or know him. But you will know him intimately, because he will make his home in you and will live inside you.”

26 But when the Father sends the Spirit of Holiness, the One like me who sets you free, He will teach you all things in my name. And he will inspire you to remember every word that I’ve told you.

When you and I were baptized in The Holy Spirit, Jesus’ prophecy was personally fulfilled in our lives.  Is there a greater fulfillment of prophecy spoken by Jesus?  Have we fully understood the importance and ramification of this prophecy as of yet?  I dare say that we haven’t.  Entering into the Secret Place with this understanding will bring us to a closer relationship with The Holy Spirit and provide the proper perspective of how critical it is to seek a deeper relationship than we have in the past.

We all want access to Heaven and long for the supernatural to take place before us.  We only have to look as far as the Secret Place for such glorious access.
