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.” (Isa. 26:20)

 

 

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. We find the same word translated as “inward parts” in Prov. 20:27, “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” This gives direct reference to that spiritual part of our being, that INNER REALM where the Spirit of Christ doth dwell, and which is so secret and intimate that only our “spirit’ knows what is really felt and known within. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?” (I Cor. 2:11)

 

 

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. “He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.” And here is the source of our life, here the inner springs are to flow, here the kingdom is to be formed and brought forth, till it reaches out and reigns over all.

 

 

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.
