“And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power; and no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished” (Revelation 15:8).
When sin has been forever banished the righteous shall enter the temple. Sin has been banished by the cross and those who are in Christ may come before the presence of God. What we await is for God to bring about eternity. The events of this age must unfold, but the promises of the Lord give us hope for what is to come. He will not stop until you are like Christ. He will accomplish what He has promised.
Lord, there are great mysteries which I do not understand. I can understand that You have taken upon Yourself what should have come upon me. Because of that, I am now on a journey of becoming like You. You already know the days ahead of me, but I live them moment by moment. Guide me, Lord, so that I may humbly walk in the truth of Your purpose and presence.
Lord Jesus, my Savior who has taken away my sin, perfect me by whatever means You choose and lead me according to Your purpose. You know all that is needed. You know what I need to become complete. Thank You, Lord, for saving me. Help me to continue on the journey before me, working through all that this world will throw in the way of my humbly walking with You. Guide me according to Your eternal purpose. Amen.
