The Holy Place

2 Chronicles 5:11–14 KJV 1900
11 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course: 12 Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:) 13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; 14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
Since the fall of man there has been a longing in man’s heart to reconnect to God. To gain that which was lost. It was a desire for God to show himself again.
God is Holy
++Purity
++Perfection

God Commands us to be Holy

++Is a Holy God

We CAN DO a lot of things but TO BE is our true calling.

Natural Law tells us what goes up must come down, similarly , What goes in must come out
Being in the Holy Place
++Was Powerful
++Was Personal
++Was life changing

The priest couldn’t stay there

They had to come out from
++A place of consecration
++A place of dedication
When they came out
++They were sanctified
++They were different
++Thy had been changed
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV 1900
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The Holy place
++Brought transformation
++Brought a change
++No one entered the Holy place and returns the same

5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; 14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
The Glory Brought them together
++One Sound
++One voice
++In praise to the Lord
They declared the enduring nature of God
++The Lords Goodness
++The Lords mercy

Then came the glory

Because of the glory
++All programming was lost
++The priest could not ministry
++It was a glory moment.
