Notes

Genesis 3:6-10

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths. 8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 And he said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.”

Ephesians 4:8-10

Therefore it says, “When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men.” 9 (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth? 10 He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Habakkuk 2:14

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

Isaiah 11:9

They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

It has been prophesied that the Lord will fill all of the earth with the personal knowledge and experience of His Presence.

That is yet to be fulfilled in this dark age.

Thus we have a Mission of His Presence before us.

Seven Presences:

1. Eternal Personal Presence of God - Genesis 1:1

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

2. Creative Presence of God - Genesis 1:1

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

3. The Omni-Presence of God- Psalm 139:7-12

Psalm 139:7-12

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! 9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” 12 even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.

4. The Upholding Presence of God - Hebrews 1:3

Hebrews 1:3

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

((These four are all uninterrupted by the fall of Satan and Man))

5. Redeeming Presence - The Gospel of Jesus Christ 

6. Indwelling Presence - The Holy Spirit’s presence in a believer though redemption 

7. Manifest Glory Presence - The Manifest Presence of God in and through His Church 

((These three are all interrupted by the fall of Satan and Man))

Ephesians 4:10 is speaking of the filling of all things with the Manifest Glory Presence of God.

Ephesians 4:10

He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Ephesians 1:22-23 reveals that God’s fullness, which will fill all and all, is manifest in His Church. 

Ephesians 1:22-23

And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church,  23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

Are you filled with His Presence though faith in the Gospel, the indwelling Holy Spirit, and being on filling-mission with his Church?

We have, and are, a Mission of His Presence.

It is vital that we fill the earth, and nations, and cities, and neighborhoods, and homes, and businesses, and everywhere with ourselves.

We have the prophetic word and power of God empowering our Mission of Presence.
