Finally Free (240107) - His Presence Pastor Willie Collins
There should be a shifting of your mindset when you consider that the God of the heavens and the earth have taken up time to sup with you as the Bible says!! Transformation of the mind Romans 12:2…
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
39 Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
39 Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Presence of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.
16 For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”
17 And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So, you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.”
15 But as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct;
16 Since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
17 And if you invoke (Pray) as Father him who judges each one impartially according to his deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile.

16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,
“I will live in them and move among them,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
17 Therefore come out from them,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,
and touch nothing unclean;
then I will welcome you,
18 and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”
“Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell among them.
1The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Tell the Israelites to bring me an offering. You are to receive the offering for me from everyone whose heart prompts them to give.
3 These are the offerings you are to receive from them: gold, silver and bronze;
4 blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen; goat hair;
5 ram skins dyed red and another type of durable leather; acacia wood;
6 olive oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense;
7 and onyx stones and other gems to be mounted on the ephod and breast piece.
8 “Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.
9 Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.
1-9 God spoke to Moses: “Tell the Israelites that they are to set aside offerings for me. (God wants what’s His period) Receive the offerings from everyone who is willing to give.
PICK BACK UP: These are the offerings I want you to receive from them: gold, silver, bronze; blue, purple, and scarlet material; fine linen; goats’ hair; tanned rams’ skins; dolphin skins; acacia wood; lamp oil; spices for anointing oils and for fragrant incense; onyx stones and other stones for setting in the Ephod and the Breast piece. Let them construct a Sanctuary for me so that I can live among them. You are to construct it following the plans I’ve given you, the design for The Dwelling and the design for all its furnishings.
As I close this morning, He said “construct a Sanctuary for me so that I can live among them.”
He wants us to be prepared to be in His Presence!!
