Plans, Purposes And Pursuits
Hagin, Kenneth E.
Bring the gold back into the temple!
Man has done in this day the same thing that was done in King Rehoboam's
day. In the Old Testament, the enemy came in and stole the gold out of
the temple of the Lord. Then King Rehoboam came along and substituted
brass for gold. Christians have done the same thing today. They have
substituted the gold of the temple - God's plans, purposes, and pursuits
for His New Testament Church - for the brass of the world. They have
brought in to the church worldly and fleshly demonstrations and
substituted that for the real moving of God's Spirit.
The next great spiritual outpouring that God is wanting to bring upon
the earth will require that many lay aside his own plans, purposes, and
pursuits and pursue the true worship of God. The Body of Christ is in
the shallow waters of a new beginning of God's glory manifested in the
earth, but that new wave of God's blessing can only occur as the Body of
Christ gets the brass out of the temple!
