The Daily Word of Righteousness

The Tail of the Dragon, #6

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. (Hebrews 9:12)

The Cleansing of the Heavens

Meanwhile the drama continues.

God has not as yet cleansed the sin from the heavenlies. Atonement indeed has been made before the Most Holy Place in Heaven.

We know from the ceremony of the Day of Atonement that not only the priest and the people but the sanctuary itself had to be covered with the blood of atonement.

And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger [for the High Priest] upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times. Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat: And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness. (Leviticus 16:14-16)


It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. (Hebrews 9:23)

We understand, therefore, that the holy places of the spiritual Heaven have been cleansed by the blood. Nevertheless Satan still is able to accuse the saints before God's throne (Revelation 12:10) and we still are wrestling against wicked powers in the heavenlies (Ephesians 6:12).

God shook the earth once when His holy Law was given on Mount Sinai. God has promised to shake the earth again, and not only the earth but the heaven as well. The holiness He has created in His saints by having Christ formed in them will invade the spirit realm. Sin and rebellion will be removed, commencing at the highest level of wickedness and reaching to the farthest areas of the creation.

And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

"That I may plant the heavens."

The heavens shall be planted with Christ and with those who have been made the righteousness of God as Christ has been formed in them. These are the spirits of righteous people made perfect, and they will take the place of the wicked lords who have fallen from their original place with God.

God's will cannot be done on the earth until it is done in the heavens. We cannot spoil the strong man's possessions until first the strong man has been rendered incapable of resistance. The Christian churches have known this for two thousand years but continue to attempt to the present hour to win the battle with physical weapons.

To be continued.
