Because the idea of the Temple Walk came from my NDE and the ongoing interaction with God and his Angels that resulted as part of this heavenly experience, I can simply put to you my own ongoing desire to practise the presence of God. The basic first step is to believe that God desires to meet with us, share with us, and even chat ‘as a friend speaks to a friend, face to face’ (see Exodus 33:11).
The Old Testament model of the temple layout as given to Moses is a ‘map’ I use for our Temple Walk teaching. The reality is that we have been transformed by God to be his temple to encounter and enjoy his presence. This was the gift given through Jesus. The human vessel was elevated back to its original purpose. It was demonstrated by Jesus Christ and made plain for us to understand when he remarked ‘destroy this temple and I will raise it up again in three days!’ As we know, this was a reference concerning him and accomplished by his resurrection.
What followed is truly profound. After the resurrection Jesus speaks to his disciples concerning the will of God, and that is, to share with us his Holy Spirit. This enabled a renew creation when Jesus breathed his Holy Spirit into us (if you haven’t already done so, take a moment to pause right now and pray to receive God’s Holy Spirit into your life).
The Temple Walk ‘map’ is just a visual guide for us to encounter God’s presence at vital parts of our life experiences. It becomes the interaction between heaven and earth as we hear in the words Jesus teaching us in the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:5-13). It is further revealed in the dynamics and inter-play of ‘my will be done!’ (as demonstrated by Adam and Even that led them down a path of destruction), or ‘not my will, but God’s will be done!’ as Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane just before he was condemned and crucified (and through that one decisive act open up for us all a path to life with all its blessings).
