Open Heaven 27 January 2024 TOPIC: What Is God’s Temple? (4)

MEMORISE: “And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.” – 2 Kings 22:8 (KJV)

READ: 2 Kings 22:8-11 (KJV)

8 And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.

9 And Shaphan the scribe came to the king and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house and has delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of the Lord.

10 And Shaphan the scribe showed the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest hath delivered me a book. And Shaphan read it before the king.

11 And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law, that he rent his clothes.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 38-40

Open Heaven 27 January 2024 MESSAGE

God’s temple is also the house of knowledge; it is a house of education. In Psalm 27:4, David made it clear:

One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

In the house of the Lord, you can behold the beauty of the Almighty God. However, David went on to say that he not only wants to behold God’s beauty but also to be there to enquire of Him. In other words, if you have any questions for God, bring them to His temple; come and ask Him in the temple.

When you enter His temple, you will receive revelations; He will begin to tell you things you will not learn at Home. This is why you must always go to church with your writing materials. It is a place to go and learn new things and get new perspectives. There have been many times that I was confused about a matter, but while listening to the word of God, the light will shine on the matter, and I will receive revelations on how to resolve the situation. This is why the psalmist said:

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. – Psalm 119:105.

The house of God is where you go to hear the word of God, and in that word is excellent knowledge and wisdom that you cannot get anywhere else. So, whether you need revelation for business, family issues, ministry, health, or any other field of life, you will get it in the house of God. Those who regularly attend a church where God’s undiluted word is taught don’t stay confused for long.

You may, however, then ask, “How do I know if the word being taught in my church is genuine and undiluted?” You must emulate the Berean Christians who always returned to their homes to search the Scriptures to verify what they had been taught in church (Acts 17:10-11).

As long as you remain in the environment where God’s undiluted and genuine word is preached, knowledge and wisdom will be available to you.

Open Heaven 27 January 2024 ACTION POINT

Always attend church services with your writing materials, and be expectant to receive new knowledge and revelation from God.
