A Pillar In God’s House
The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name. (Revelation 3:12 ESV)
Those who persist and overcome the flesh, the world and the devil are those that are made pillars in God’s house. They are the vessels of honor who carry God’s anointing. The reason that the anointing is so scarce in the Church of Jesus Christ today is because there is an overcoming to do. It is done by the grace of God and by prayers. The more we seek God’s face, the more we are transformed until we are transformed from glory to glory into His image.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. Acts 4:33
It is like climbing a holy mountain bit by bit by the grace of God. When we eventually get to the mountaintop of Christian maturity where we produce all the fruits of the Holy Spirit, we are eventually crowned with glory and power. It is this resting of God’s power upon us that makes us pillars in God’s house. The power of God makes us effective ministers.
