The Word of God Mt. Carmel Church is Anchored in The Presence of God
He only came into the Holy of Holies to atone for sin. One time, one day to one man, the high priest, but it says, this about hope. What Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we have is an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, which enters behind the veil.
It enters in behind the veil and enters into the presence behind the veil. It goes into the presence in the presence waiting. What are Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we talking about? How does hope get in there? What happened when Jesus died on the cross?
When Jesus died and rose from the dead, the Bible says that the veil in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, 30 feet tall. There Mt. Carmel Illinois Church were no individuals running up there with a pair of scissors. It tore in two from top to bottom and now what was closed off, access with the only the high priest could go one time into that room to atone for sins.
Now Jesus, please notice what it says. Jesus said, it’s interesting to be in the presence behind the veil of where the forerunner has entered for us. Even Jesus having become high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
Here’s what’s talking about. Jesus, when he died and rose from the dead, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church. There was a mercy seat in the Holy of Holies that the high priest would, would apply the blood for the atonement of sin.
Jesus Mt. Carmel Illinois Church went into the Holy of Holies for you and I, and he applied the blood for our sin and it wasn’t just once a year, he just needed to do it one time for everyone. So there’s no more once a year.
My anchor can go into the presence behind the veil because the veil has been torn in two. So now my hope is anchored in his presence. Let me finish with this. This is what’s so important. When you tie this together. My hope is built on what?
The fact that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, and he’s no respecter of persons and the fact that God is true, his word is true, and he will not lie. He watches over his word to perform it. That’s my hope and that hope in those two facets, those two immutable things, goes into his presence and anchors me.
I’m anchored to his presence on those two immutable things. The word of God has to be anchored in the presence of God. Here’s where Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we miss our hope.
We don’t value the anchor location. The anchor has to be in the presence.
God’s word is Mt. Carmel Illinois Church awesome. It’s incredible. It’s invaluable. But if Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we forget his presence, combining with that word I can’t have hope outside of the presence. I can’t have hope without his presence in my life.
I can’t have a Bible and I can’t have scriptures without his presence. Holy Spirit, I ask your presence to come. Now, here’s what I believe is going to happen.
As I prayed, I prayed for the presence of God to move, but you will not have an anchor in Mt. Carmel Illinois Church service. Your anchor is not in a Mt. Carmel Illinois Church service.
You’re at your anchor is not in a sermon. Your anchor is in him. That’s your anchor. It enters in to the presence behind the veil. So now my anchor is in him, my anchors in who he is. My anchor is in what he says and who he is in his word and in his presence.
Anchored in His Word and in His Presence
I’m anchored in by his word and I’m anchored in his presence. In other words, when the enemy tries to get me out of the presence of God, I’m anchored in the presence of God. When the enemy tries to get me out of Mt. Carmel Illinois Church, I’m anchored in Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.

You and I, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we need a presence place. You need a place where you meet the presence of God every day. You need a place where you and inhabit his presence.
Where are you going? I don’t care if it’s for 5 minutes, 15 minutes, start somewhere.
Somewhere you have a secret place where you meet with Jesus and you drop anchor in his presence because there’s times when I want to run and I want to quit. I want to give up. I want to get discouraged, whatever it may be.
When I go into my secret place, I go in there and I say, I’m dropping anchor.
I’m not moving of your promises. Your, your word is an anchor to my soul. When my thoughts are running wild, and my will wants to give up and when my emotions are in chaos, God, your word, it’s an anchor to my soul right now in Jesus’ name!
