Joel 2:28 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.
It is God’s will to pour out His Spirit upon all flesh. But again, it is emphasized, that He will not do it directly from the throne room, but through the existence of His church.
From the throne room, the Father will pour out His Spirit upon the lives of every believer, namely God’s church which is His holy temple, then from their lives, living water flowing that will reach all those who interact with their existence (Ezekiel 47:1-12).
Therefore, make sure that we continue to be built as His holy temple, or in other words, we are called and sent to be carriers of God’s reality.
1 Corinthians 3:16 (NKJV) Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
God wants each of us to realize that our lives are the embodiment and manifestation of Zion. Zion is spiritually the place where God is enthroned which is manifested through the existence of His church which is built according to the pattern of heaven.
Our lives are the temples of the living God, and God wants us to always be carriers of the reality of heaven on earth, to be houses of prayer for all nations. Everyone who interacts with us, will find that they are interacting with God’s own existence.
The preparation of ourselves as the temple of the living God (His church), to be used by God to function as carriers of the reality of His presence is as follows:
1. Continue to persevere in a lifestyle of denying yourself and taking up your cross.
Make sure our lives experience the death of the flesh, there is a process of God through the work of the Word and the Spirit that kills various forms of human and worldly desires. In this way, we will also experience the reality of heaven which is becoming more and more real.
In the reality of heaven, there is never a veil of mourning, tears and sorrow, but cheers and joy. This means that we will experience from within us that we are always full of spirit that is burning because of the divine joy and peace that overflow from within us.
When we continue to rub the Word in our minds and hearts, then the awareness of the reality of God will definitely grip our lives and we also can continue to function as carriers of God’s reality.
Make sure at all times, we always flow the living waters, through movements once an hour, we pray, read and declare the Word. Make sure God’s reality is real in our lives as His temple, by continuing to pray and imagine the Word.
So, as the Bible foretold, wherever the river flows, there is life. This means that there is a change or transformation that occurs because of the touch of the work of His Word and Spirit.
