“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of
life. 
Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.” Proverbs 4:23-27

Once a year, the High Priest entered into the Most Holy Place to carry out the most solemn and holy and final duties of the year-long temple rituals.

.

And the chosen priesthood was the most solemn of all duties, requiring complete consecration before entering! This was a life-and-death matter! There was to be no flippancy or lightness, in the life of that High Priest!

.

If he should go into that Most Holy Place with unconfessed sins, he was likely to be struck dead before he left!

NEW TESTAMENT PRIESTHOOD: US!

.

The New Testament tells us, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgholy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him, who has called you out of darkness, and into His marvellous light:” 1st Peter 2:9

.

Now, because we New Testament Believers have been chosen to be a royal priesthood, we have the responsibility to carry on the duties of the priesthood. And God expects no less from us than He required from those priests of olden times!

KINGDOM OF GOD WITHIN US!

.ABOVE PICTURE: Most Holy Place in the heart - Signs Of Heaven

Now we should never feel that we are priests without a tabernacle! The Lord reveals to us… “for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,” 2nd Corinthians 6:16, 17

.

So we, His Elect, are the true tabernacle. And since God declares that He dwells in us, then we share in the priestly duties with Him, who is our High Priest.

ENCOURAGED TO READ PART 1

.

And so, in Part 1 (click here), the basic care and maintenance of our Most Holy Place in our heart was laid out. And the reader is highly encouraged to read Part 1. Because this Part 2 will make much more sense in the light of what was discussed in Part 1.

.

Yes, the more we understand the holiness of God’s temple service, the more reverent we will be in the daily care and maintenance of our heart.

DAILY PRAYER FOR AN AWARENESS

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpg

And it would be wise to pray each and every day that God will give us an on-going awareness that we are a Royal Priesthood, as it says in various places in the New Testament.

.

And so, as that Royal Priesthood, we need to make sure that we keep our heart holy and undefiled.

UNGODLINESS IS EVERYWHERE!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpg

Now, living, working, or going to school in this Babylonish world, it is inevitable that we are going to encounter sin. We’re going to hear ungodly chatter and un-Christian, sensual music at times, as we walk through the stores. We may even be in a living situation which exposes us to ungodliness.

NO EXCUSE FOR CARELESSNESS

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

But because we will encounter sin in this world doesn’t mean that we should begin to take a careless attitude regarding ungodly influences.

.

No, listen to the Wise Man, Solomon…“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.” Proverbs 4:23-27

.

The Bible constantly warns the Christian to be very careful about our heart! After all, the heart is the “treasure chest of the mind”! And we need to carefully guard our heart from needlessly exposing ourselves to the ever-increasing ungodly sights and sounds of Satan’s kingdom, this world!

OUR PRIESTHOOD NOT GUARANTEED!

.

Now the Bible is filled with warnings and threats, and we must never take these warnings lightly…

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Two_Priests_Are_Destroyed.jpg

Listen…“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected
knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6

.

Don’t get the notion that this verse is merely for Old Testament priests! These things were written for our admonition in these New Testament times! And if we continue to carelessly defile our Holy Place with the filth of the world, God just might remove us from this office. Because, everything we voluntarily see or listen to, will find its place in our hearts and minds. And these will have a corrupting influence, just as it is written… “Do not be deceived! Evil communications corrupt good manners!” 1st Corinthians 15:33

PLEAD FOR GRACE AND FOR PROTECTION

.

And so, it is imperative that we begin each new day, pleading with God thttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgo help us to keep away from enjoying the devilish Babylonish hub-bub and sensuality which pervades nearly every corner of today’s society! But instead, we need to keep in unceasing prayer and contemplation of God’s Word, as we go about our day. 

.

We are to be priests from morning through night! This requires a Christlike character. And if we don’t yet have a Christlike character, we need to plead for it, and seek for it as for hidden treasure! And anything that keeps us from having that kind of character should be prayerfully considered for the trash-heap!

“COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM”

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lunch_Break_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1124457.jpg

Babylonish shepherds will often encourage their flocks to make friendships with unbelievers, as a means of converting them to Christianity. But more often than not, it is the church-goer who becomes the converted one, brought back into the world! You don’t read about the early church going out to make personal friendships with the unbelieving world. No, rather, they merely preached the Gospel whenever possible.

.

And the Bible warns us… “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?…etc…for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shhttp://blog.travelpod.com/travel-photo/jeastty/3/1303829593/mall-witnessing.jpg/tpod.htmlall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2nd Corinthians 6:14, 16-18

.

There is nothing in this above passage that encourages us to make personal friendships with unbelievers. Just the opposite! We are commanded to separate from them! Oh yes, we may wish to tell unbelievers about Salvation. But don’t let them bring you onto their turf! And never give one-and-one Bible studies with someone of the opposite gender. Let someone of the same gender do that!

“LET HIM THAT READS, RUN!”http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

. 

We are now in the day when Habakkuk warns us to “RUN!” And beside running away from the apostate churches, we must also run to the Narrow Gate. And though God may have winked at our ignorance in the past decades, that time has come and gone. Habakkuk now says, “RUN!”, and so we had better, “RUN!” 

.

And the Book of Habakkuk tells us where we must flee to… “The LORD God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places.” Habakkuk 3:19

.

So let us pray for those “hind’s feet”, that we might get ourselves up to “mine high places”, that is, to our priestly calling in the cleansed sanctuary of our heart, to pray, to worship, and to behold His beauty and holiness!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

THE NARROW GATE STARS

.

foursome late winter 8/29/11

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

 

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch below left).

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.
