And Behold, The Glory Of The Lord

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house” Ezekiel 43:5 When we follow the Holy Spirit’s leading to go into our inner court, as priests ministering to our Lord, we are blessed to “behold, the glory of the Lord.” Yes, agree with and let the Spirit of God within lift you up into your inner court and you will “Behold,” which simply means “Look at this!” Yes, you will behold the glory of the Lord when you enter your “inner room” (Matthew 6:6) as a priest unto God. This is exactly what Paul described, as he was writing about our New Covenant in Jesus Christ in 2nd Corinthians, chapters

The Spirit Lifted Me Up And Brought Me Into The Inner Court

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house” Ezekiel 43:5 What the prophet Ezekiel was blessed to experience, in his great vision of a restored temple and a holy priesthood to God, which fills the last eight chapters of this prophetic book, you and I are blessed to experience every single day in our priesthood to God through our eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ! The Holy Spirit of God lifts us up and brings us into the inner court, the inner room within us, where we are privileged and blessed to minister to our Lord in His presence. The apostle Paul wrote to the church of the Galat

Jesus Our Covenant Shepherd Feeds Us Himself

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “I will set over them one shepherd, My servant David, and he will feed them himself and be their shepherd. I will make a covenant of peace with them” Ezekiel 34:23&25 Jesus, our Good Shepherd, feeds us Himself! This prophetic word from Ezekiel, chapter 34, is similar to the word we have been looking at lately from Ezekiel chapter 37. Both mention “My servant David” and “a covenant of peace.” Both words also point to our priesthood in our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is both our “covenant of peace” and “My servant.” In this case, God was rebuking the false shepherds of the house of Israel, saying “Woe, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding themselves! S

God Has Replaced Our Moshab With His Mishkan

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “David My servant will be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever. My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people” Ezekiel 37:25-27 Hallelujah, my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, for our Lord has made His “dwelling place” with us! Yesterday I shared a bit with you about the Hebrew meaning of the word “dwelling” in this text. “Mishkan” is the word used and it means: a dwelling place, tabernacle, and resting place. Oh praise God that He is al

Dwelling With God In His Dwelling Place

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “David My servant will be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever. My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people” Ezekiel 37:25-27 Praise our Lord God that He has set His sanctuary in our midst forever specifically so “My dwelling place also will be with them!” God WANTS to dwell with and within us, His Own New Covenant people, and the entirety of this Scripture from Ezekiel is true for us right now through Jesus Christ, Who presently dwells wit

God’s Dwelling Place Is With Us

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “David My servant will be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever. My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people” Ezekiel 37:25-27 God’s will for us in Jesus Christ is that “My dwelling place will be with them.” Amen and praise God, for this is precisely what has been given to us in our New Covenant priesthood to God. God’s dwelling place is presently within us, through “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). In his second letter t

“And I Will Place Them” - Let God “Place” You

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “David My servant will be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever” Ezekiel 37:25-26 In Jesus Christ our Savior, God has placed us in His everlasting New Covenant of peace and He has placed His sanctuary in our midst forever! O yes Lord we praise Your name forever! In order for us to see, understand, and practice these truths, we very much need to allow God to “place” us in THIS place, the place of His fulfilled word in Christ, and of His fulfilled word in us, who have become His Own New Coven

God’s Sanctuary Is In Our Midst Forever

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “David My servant will be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever” Ezekiel 37:25-26 Here is yet another word of prophecy fulfilled through our Messiah, Jesus Christ, of a new “everlasting covenant of peace” through our “forever” Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6); an eternal covenant, incorporating the perpetual kingship of David with God’s sanctuary and, therefore, His priesthood, “in their midst forever.” That Ezekiel was not referring to the actual person of David Himself is obvious, for David h

How Blessed We Are To Be Ministers Of The Sanctuary

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From The Lord: “It shall be the holy portion of the land; it shall be for the priests, the ministers of the sanctuary, who come near to minister to the Lord, and it shall be a place for their houses and a place for the sanctuary” Ezekiel 45:4 Ministers to the Lord are “ministers of the sanctuary!” This is who and what we are! Through our priesthood to God, we are forever moving closer and closer, in real time growth, to the sanctuary of the Lord. As the years roll by in my priesthood to God, the call of God upon me is ever increasingly towards the Lord Himself, “that I may know Him” (Philippians 3:10), and so, like Paul, “I press on toward the goal for the prize

Our Holy Portion - A Place For Our Houses And A Place For The Sanctuary

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From The Lord: “It shall be the holy portion of the land; it shall be for the priests, the ministers of the sanctuary, who come near to minister to the Lord, and it shall be a place for their houses and a place for the sanctuary” Ezekiel 45:4 God invites us to live in His praises! Our Lord God, before Whom we are a kingdom of priests (1 Peter 2:9), has given us a “holy portion.” We are certainly all called to be priests unto God. However, it is only those who respond to the call, “who come near to minister to the Lord,” who receive, understand, and therefore value this “holy portion.” And what, specifically, is this “holy portion” that we have been given as His

The Holy Portion Is For Those Who Minister To The Lord

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From The Lord: “It shall be the holy portion of the land; it shall be for the priests, the ministers of the sanctuary, who come near to minister to the Lord, and it shall be a place for their houses and a place for the sanctuary” Ezekiel 45:4 For the past few days we have been beholding and understanding the blessed priestly truth for us in the declaration, “The Lord is my portion” (Lamentations 3:24). Today, in this text from Ezekiel, who himself was a priest, we see this precise truth of God’s inner court priests being given a “holy portion,” of land, specifically so that the priests “who come near to minister to the Lord” would actually live adjacent to the s

My Soul Declares That The Lord Is My Portion

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 I will gladly declare “The Lord is my portion.” Who is declaring? My soul within me, my new self in Christ Jesus, the Spirit of God within me; in fact all that is within me shall “bless the Lord O my soul” (Psalm 103:1). Every time I enter the privilege and call to minister to my Lord, because in Jesus Christ I am a minister to the Lord, I am giving my

The Lord Is My Portion Says My Soul

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Dear beloved child of God, is your soul rejoicing and saying “The Lord is my portion” right now? Is your inner most being, the new creation that Jesus Christ has made you to be, saying with recognition, humility, and gratitude “The Lord is my portion?” My point is this; it is one thing for us to confess with our mouths that the Lord is our portion and i

The Lord Is My Portion - Part 2

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Sing praises to our Lord Jesus Christ and to our Abba Father, to Him Who is our “portion” now and forever! Yesterday I shared some beautiful Scriptures with you concerning the Lord being our portion. When we declare “the Lord is my portion,” this means we are looking solely to our Lord, Himself, as our source and supply, our daily strength, goodness, an

The Lord Is My Portion - Part 1

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Yesterday we beheld the sacred and most blessed privilege we have been given, as born again, blood purchased, Spirit filled, New Covenant children and priests of God, to knowingly say “The Lord is My portion.” Today I would like to share further insight with you into the wonderful meaning and application of “The Lord is my portion” in our Lives. In Psal

The Lord Is My Portion Says His Priests

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 It is certainly the priests of the Lord who realize what a privilege it is to believe, receive, and confess the wonderful truth of “The Lord is my portion.” This realization, that the Lord indeed is our portion, is what keeps us, as His priests, near to our Lord, for He is our portion now and forever. He is our hope. We wait for Him and seek Him, for He

Waiting & Seeking - Our God-Given Priesthood Keys

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Our God’s lovingkindnesses never cease towards us and His compassions never fail within us. Thank You Lord!. If there is ever a day when I am failing to see my God’s lovingkindnesses and compassions, that can only be because I have failed to “wait for Him” and seek Him. Yes, I may fail to see God’s goodness, but my God’s goodness never fails. I may fail

To Those Who Wait For Him

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him” Lamentations 3:22-25 Praise God that our Lord’s lovingkindnesses and compassions are new, for us, every morning! The proof that we believe this is seen in our own spiritual posture, in our being the ones who will actually wait for our Lord and seek Him, in order that we may receive into revelation life these very lovingkindnesses and compassions. Yes, our waiting upon our L

Shepherds And Priests Who Are After God’s Own Heart

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding” Jeremiah 3:15 Every single word I have shared and declared, concerning our present day New Covenant priesthood to God, is entirely about being fed “on knowledge and understanding.” God’s present day church, the proclaimed body of Christ, absolutely needs this specific “knowledge and understanding,” of our New Covenant and of our identity as God’s priesthood, that can only come to God’s church via “shepherds after My own heart.” If we are after the heart of God, then where do we go? We go after God, specifically after His heart, and that is precisely why a

The Mighty Benefits Of Our Priesthood In His Presence

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “‘I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness,’ declares the Lord”...“For I satisfy the weary ones and refresh everyone who languishes” Jeremiah 31:25&14 If we know nothing about our priesthood in Jesus Christ and of our consistent access to the presence of God, as His kingdom and priests, then we may completely miss out on the satisfaction and refreshment God presently offers and promises us, as His priests in His presence. As New Covenant priests unto our God, we have our Abba Father’s Own guarantee, prophesied through Jeremiah and fulfilled in Jesus Christ, that God fills our priestly souls
