Golden Lifestyle

Updated on June 9, 2010

Becoming like the Father

 

            GOLDEN LIFESTYLE

 

 

                   

          The kingdom of God is a society upon earth where God’s will is as perfectly done as it is in heaven. In order to minimize the confusion brought about by religion on this matter, we need to understand the set up in the Tabernacle of Moses.

          Having three major parts, namely; The Outer court, The Inner court and the Holy of Holies – The Tabernacle of Moses in the simplest form can be likened to one’s walk with God. As you come to God through the Outer court, you make all efforts to decide for God. At the Inner court, God meets you halfway encouraging  you by His Spirit. However, it must be all God in the Holy of Holies – leaving you with no choice than to do His will. Total and complete obedience.

          As you move through the Tabernacle, your walk with God progresses. In this same manner are the Feasts laid out in Israel. The Three major feasts are the Passover, The Pentecost and The Tabernacle. The striking parallels in the courts and the feasts are of significant importance to our walk with God today.

 

          Court         Feast                 Symbol               Significance

 

1.      Outer          Passover         The Blood           Salvation: coming to Christ.

 

2.      Inner           Pentecost          The Voice           Leading: Spirit baptism.

 

3,      Holy            Tabernacle        The Glory            Maturity: Bearing fruits

 

 

 

          To bear fruit is to produce a harvest, which is mature, fully developed and perfect – speaking of God’s glory. This glory is only revealed above the Cherubim in the Holy of holies, where everything is gold. This is our calling. (According to 2 Peter 1:4) We are called to be partakers of the divine nature, a golden lifestyle!

          Our walk with God only starts at Passover, but our calling begins at the Tabernacle. This is where God enjoys harvesting you as a sweet smelling aroma. Spiritual harvest is not harvest of souls. Winning souls (Passover) has nothing to do with ‘bearing fruit’ (Tabernacle). After your salvation, God has to wait patiently (leading you) until you attain maturity bearing fruit for harvest.

 

 

 

The meal offering always accompany the burnt offering (Leviticus 6: 14 – 23) in the Old Testament temple worship. That is; you give a burnt offering first and then a meal offering follows.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength – this is the burnt offering in the New Testament (Mark 12: 30, Romans 12:1).          

          And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself – this also is the accompanying meal offering in the New Testament (Mark 12: 31).

          If you have offered your life to God, you may now expect to be offered to your neighbor. Gold is only precious on display. To live a golden lifestyle is to attain maturity; bearing fruit to the glory of the Father: witnessed by your neighbors. The Kingdom of God comes not in speech, but in deed (Power). Gold has nothing to say than to appear. In like manner, your manifestation as a Son of God is what the whole world is waiting for. Your lifestyle talks louder than your sermon. A fruitless tree attracts no one!

          Those at Passover may see the Kingdom of God, those at Pentecost may enter therein, but only those at the Tabernacle (bearing fruit) will inherit the Kingdom of God. The City of pure gold in the book of Revelation 21 is the people of God that are with the divine nature – Gold!

          May your life provoke the gentiles to repentance and the heaven to rejoice. You are precious and peculiar, you are a gold in the making.
