THE INNER DWELLING
BY: RAY PRINZING
“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.”
The word ”chambers: used here is the Hebrew word “cheder” meaning an enclosed place, more specifically, an inner chamber, and speaks of that inner room of privacy for the intimate, secret part of our lives.
To enter into our chambers, therefore, is to learn to live in this inner realm with Christ. Applied to our spiritual walk, the obvious is the exterior, manifested in the flesh realm, the outer circle, the fringes, and we pass through the laws of do and don’t, with our walk and actions dealt with from the surface, exterior viewpoints. Then we progress to the soul-realm, the mind, with its intellectual reasoning’s which need to be brought into subjection to the truth. The will and emotions which dominate our thinking must be renewed into the mind of Christ. But there is also this third dimension, this inner chamber, the inward parts of our being, where our spirit dwells.
All the “do-it-yourself kits” of mind control will fall short of their desired results, for the true Source of life is The Spirit of God which is joined to our spirit.
A wheel within a wheel is turning,
Thy world in the world, yet apart,
For thou shalt abide all the shaking,
Kept safe, with the Christ, in thy heart.
