The Ark of the Covenant
Ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament was a type of the New Testament
believer. In the ark there were three things. 1. The Hidden Manna. 2. Aaronís
rod that budded. 3 The Tables of Stone.
Rev 2:17 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
Most of us do not really realize that within us is the reality of these three aspects of life. The Hidden Manna represents the deep hidden experiences we have in a close relationship with our inner being, Christ within us. The Lord will reveal things to you that you do not talk about, mainly because most would not understand what you experience. You will experience things that will be unbelievable to those who have not experienced them. Some of these things are now being written about because we are now beginning to enter a Golden Age of the Kingdom being established on the earth. The Christian who does not have a relationship with the Lord within will think what is being revealed today is a false new age teaching.
Eph 2:6 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Aaronís Rod that budded represents the resurrection life of Christ within us. Once you begin to touch this resurrection life of Christ within you, you begin to live above the circumstances of life that come to you. You then begin to live a joyous life above the law of sin and death. No longer do the bondages of religion hold you captive to carnal doctrines of men who divide the Body of Christ.
In the Ark of the Covenant were the tables of stone representing the regulating law of Godís life within us. The 10 commandments are not to be taken as outward rules and regulations but as the inner life law of our being that flows from within us. Most of us have been failures for years in manifesting Christ to the world because we have not learned to live by His Life. The regulating, resurrection, transcendent life law resides on the insides of our being. This life reproduces Christ within us to bring reconciliation to the world.
We have settled for forms, laws, regulations and ceremony for many years while the temple of God has been covered over with these things, however today the building, the Temple made without hands is being raised up within us.
