Recovery House of Prayer
“It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer. Yet you make it a den of robbers.” (Matthew 21:13). Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.(Malachi 3:1-3).
Prophetic Spirit to prepare the way for Christ to come and cleanse His temple. His first arrival set the pattern for any trip in the future. When Jesus came, the temple is full of worldly transactions and those who seek profit for himself.
Selfishness and worldly values, has much of the church. Status and success is often determined by the temporal dose dollars and numbers. Despite the money and the number could multiply exponentially in the blessing of God, but it should not be our motivation or purpose and is not a measure of our obedience to God’s will.
No wonder the church faces serious problems and difficult because the bids came mundane like a snake into the garden of eden and look for the weaknesses of human children in church while growing or established church. God is not know it but God always gives us the freedom to choose.
Inducement to exchange gifts of our ministry for personal gain is very strong where we might want fame, prestige or position either in the church or in the secular world, which the prophets referred to as spiritual adultery. Hosea 5:4, says: “They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD”.
Christianity has been almost completely worshiped picture yourself in the house of God, how far we are from the service we need to seek our own glory, John 7:18 says: “He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him”. As long as we seek our own glory, the glory of God can not return to his temple. Will we, like John the Baptist to be getting smaller, that He might be bigger?
To be God’s house is not a place trade is only when the house was restored completely at a house of prayer, true worshipers could not worship in spirit and in truth when the self, pride, arrogance, self-interest is still enthroned, the longer we looked at the amazing glory of God we should get smaller in the eyes of our own.
We should say: “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if any wicked way, and lead me in the way everlasting!
When we lose ourselves in our worship of God we’re actually enable the full power of God in us, we would love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves, where we will initiate changes great in the house of prayer to bring the glory of God in His temple.
This is a great time to find a new starting point to return to the Father, because of Him and through Him and to Him-is everything and to get back into his goal is a family similar to his own image.
