The treasures that lie within!

Posted by appolus on June 9, 2015

beamsOur God holds the universe in His hands and yet not a sparrow falls from the sky without His knowing it. He knows every hair of our head, every secret tear, every unseen moment. He surrounds us with inpenatrable light. The children of Israel’s darkest nights were guided by a pillar of fire and a cloud to protect them from the heat of the day. Jesus is the fire of our life, He is our overarching cloud that shields us from the heat of the day. We abide under the shadow of His wings.

In the Old Testament, God poured out fire from heaven and we were touched by His presence. Two thousand years ago He sent an all consuming fire to walk the earth. And although our Lord Jesus returned to His rightful place at the right hand of our Heavenly Father, the fire of life came and dwelt in the very midst of our new hearts. If we will take this fire of our hearts and cover it with the lens of the Holy Spirit then the fire will be magnified and we will send up a beam of light that searches the heavens. And our heavenly Father says this, “I will be found by those who search for me.” What a magnificent sight, if we could see with our spiritual eyes, a million beams of light all pointing up to the heavens from whence our help comes from. And so when once the fire came down and we were undone in the presence of the almighty God, now, the fire is sent up from the hearts of believers to the throne of God Himself, and we commune with Him. This is the very essence of life. It is for this purpose that we were created in the first place. This holy union, man and God united in perfect harmony by the conduit of the Holy Spirit who has magnified the Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts.

How many of us know that the old pagan temples were magnificently ornate with marble and gold and jewels and rich hardwoods? Now the rich live in their own temples filled with their own idols. The richer a man is, the more elaborate are his surroundings. He fills his house with symbols of his wealth and this gives him status among men. In order to gain riches men will literally move mountains in their pursuit of gold. They will mine the depths of the sea to drain it of its oil. They will decorate their mansions with treasures from all over the earth.

The man of God also decorates his temple with riches. His dwelling place will be no less elaborate that the richest men of the earth. He will decorate his temple with the finest gold of unconditional love. His walls are encrusted with the jewels of forgiveness and mercy. His windows are draped with opulent coverings of meekness and humility. Trophies of grace hang on every wall. They are framed with the finest materials of love and patience and kindness. His temple is the temple of the Lord that dwells within him. Men can see our riches too or at least should be able to. Our riches are meant to be seen and to be shared.

Let us ask ourselves this question, do we pursue the riches and the glories of heaven with the same vigor and single-mindedness that men here on earth pursue gold and silver? And the treasures that we have attained in Christ, do we protect them with all the resources that we have? Do we value the treasures of our heart in the same way men value their wealth? There is a direct correlation between how much we value something to the lengths we will go to protect it. Guard your hearts brothers and sisters in Christ, for we have an enemy who seeks to steal and destroy what we have. Satan knows the value of what we have oftentimes more than we do. We need to fully realize the treasures that we posses and the power that lies in our treasures. We have the weapons in our treasury to destroy all the works of the adversary, and he knows it well. That is why their is an unrelenting battle to take what is ours by force, but here is the good news, the gates of hell shall not prevail against the Body of Christ.

Share your treasure this day, the more we give of our treasure to those who have none, the more our treasures increase. The word says “He gives power to the weak and to those who have no might, He strengthens them.” We have been called to empower the weak, to bind the hearts of the brokenhearted, those who are weakened, we come along side and strengthen. We have been called to wipe the tears of those who mourn, to grieve with them. Let us move in Christ brothers and sisters, and know that it is He that goes before us. Together we will build the most glorious dwelling place, and in that place we shall be married, the bride and the bridegroom, and God the Father will cause us to be forever joined in a glorious eternal matrimony and we will be one in the one from above.
