college age conference testimony – seeing a vision of God’s building, the mingling of God and man


Have you ever considered that God has a heart’s desire? This is what’s on His heart, this is what He is after. God’s heart’s desire is to have His building (Exo. 25:8). This building is not a school, a factory, a chapel or some kind of physical building but a group of people who are constituted with and by the Lord. This building is also the goal of God’s complete salvation! God’s chosen people are saved all the way from their fallen condition to become God’s dwelling place, that is, God’s building (Eph. 2:21-22).

In order for us to see the vision of God’s building, we need to be brought into intimate fellowship with God under a clear sky and remain with God under His glory on the mountain of God (Heb 8:5, Exo 24:9-18). Moses was on the mountaintop being infused with God under His glory, remaining with Him to receive the divine instructions for the building of the tabernacle. Lord, lead us higher up the mountain to have such a fellowship with You! Moreover, God’s ultimate desire, as typified by the heavenly pattern of the tabernacle, is that we would “come forward to the Holy of Holies” and experience Christ in the deepest and most intimate way to become the dwelling place of God! (Heb 10:22; 3:6). This all requires that we would be willing – Lord make us willing! We need to consecrate ourselves to the Lord, and offer ourselves willingly (Psa. 110:3).

This is where we see the vision of God’s dwelling – in our mingled spirit! We need to be those living in our spirit and who are ushered into the experiences of Christ to become the building of God (1 Cor 3:9, 1 Pet 2:5). Praise the Lord for this mingling of God and man to become the corporate expression and enlargement of God! We are built into God and God is built into us so that we may become the dwelling place of God in the universe, the eternal tabernacle, the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:2-3). We need to have this vision.
