Mat 13:44: Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto
treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy
thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Why is one man willing to sell all and invest everything that
he has to buy this field? Because, he sees something that others do not see.
This hidden treasure is not the message of salvation; it is a message to those
within the kingdom. This is why Jesus spoke in parables; He was looking for
those who had ears to hear the mysteries.
The kingdom of God is always represented in three levels: The
parable of the leaven hidden in the three measuresÖ. The parable of the
thirty-fold, sixty-fold and one hundred-fold are examples of this. In the Old
Testament, Moses Tabernacle was to be a pattern or figure of heavenly
(spiritual) truths. The tabernacle was represented by three divisions: the outer
court, the holy place, and the holy of holies. The outer court basically speaks
of salvation, the baptism of water, and the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Although, this is a part of our vision and message, our desire is to bring
people into the deeper truths that will enable them to inherit glory. To be a
part of the glorified Church that will do the greater works!
The desire of Christ was to bring many sons to glory (Heb.
2:10). The Glory of God was not in the outer court of the tabernacle. The glory
was in the holy of holies behind the veil. Our forerunner, (The Lord Jesus
Christ) showed us the way in through his crucifixion. [See Heb. 6:19-20.] The
true message of sonship will ultimately enable us to say, as the Apostle Paul: "I
am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in
me." The reason Paul could demonstrate the power and the glory was
because Paul had experienced the cross!
The Apostle John also categorizes the Church into three
groups: Little children, young men, and fathers. The fathers (spiritually)
represent those who manifest the nature and character of Christ Ė these will
teach the nations! The little children are those in the outer court, their sins
To make ready a people prepared for the Lord (Luke 1:17).
The message of the hour is to prepare a peopleÖ to
establish, to perfect a people that God can use in the final outpouring of His
Spirit. We believe that the greatest revival is yet to be seen. This revival
will bring the Church to completion! The final Church (the latter house) shall
be filled with the Glory of God, as Solomonís Temple was. The Feast of
Pentecost initiated the Church age. The Feast of Tabernacles will climax the
Church age. Solomonís Temple was dedicated during the feast of Tabernacles, it
is also called: the feast of glory!
To summarize our vision, let us consider Mount Zion. Mount
Zion (spiritually) speaks of the high calling of God. It is the dwelling place
of God. It is the place where the Ark of the Covenant sat (David era). Mount
Zion speaks of the rent veil (the ark was housed there in an unveiled tent). It
also speaks of the reality of the New Covenant Ė the law written upon the
heart. Mount Zion speaks of the overcomer, or the saint. It speaks of a certain
spiritual posture; it represents the position of those whom God fights for, or
In these days of trouble and uncertainty, there is a rest to
Godís people, and it is our desire (as a church) to lead people into this rest
(Isaiah 4:5-6). The covering wings of the mercy seat are positioned in the
secret place (within the veil).
Mount Zion also represents Godís government, or leadership.
During Davidís time, David organized the forthcoming government upon Mount
Zion. Mount Zion is for those who hear the call and prepare their hearts for
that call. These are those whom shall teach the nations the ways of God during
the final revival. The book of Acts clearly tells us that the heavens must
receive Christ until all is restored. The church must come into order before
Christ returns, and it shall be a glorious church. May we, by the grace of God,
have a part in restoring the church to Godís original plan and purpose. Amen!
