Another truth that comes clear in observing Israel and Aaron of old is that names were written on precious stones called onyx stones and Aaron bore them before the Lord. Of course, every student of the Bible knows that to bear the name before the Lord means to bear them into the Holy of Holies where the Shekinah Glory of God resides – there, splendour and majesty of God resided.
The onyx stone is a stone with layers of different colours, and when light in different waves of brilliance falls on it, it reflects the different shades of colours. That is, every time Aaron entered the Holy of Holies and the light of God’s marvelous presence fell on those stones with the names engraved on them, they radiated the glory of God back with and in their peculiar shades of brilliance.
The bearing up of the believer by Jesus into the actual presence of the Father coupled with the ministry of the Holy Ghost making real in our lives what Jesus is dong in heaven, results in the believer radiating the glory of God for the world to see. The more you, as a believer, allow the Holy Ghost to carry on His ministry in your life, the more of the radiance of heaven He manifests. This results in our ability to approach the Father like princes. Things that make it easy for the Holy Spirit to operate in your life include praying regularly in tongues; prompt obedience to God’s word and living a sinless life.
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, have Your way and have Your say in my life. I pledge that my body will not be a cage to You. My body is the temple of God and I will ensure You have a free course in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
