Experiencing THE PRESENCE of our God
Perhaps the most necessary thing for the believer is to experience the Presence of God. There is nothing quite like knowing you are where He is. In fact, the Bible says, in Psalm 16:11, "...in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." So, we should all seek to enter into His presence. However, we cannot come how we choose. There is a prescribed way He has selected to receive us.
We are living in a time where rules and norms are constantly questioned. Now, I fully understand the need to do away with that which no longer works. However, when it comes to the Word of God, it should remain unchanged and unquestioned. The Bible tells us we should "...enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise." The direct nature of that scripture should leave no room for error nor doubt that God dictates the terms of our access...and yet there is more. For example, we cannot effectively accomplish even this task prescribed in Psalm 100:4 without the proper preparation mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. iIt is this which we seek to understand as we study. So, come be a part of this powerful series of lessons and glean what God wants you to know about His Presence.
