WELCOME TO SACRED SPACES
a place to create spiritual connection
COME NEAR TO GOD
So let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, with hearts that have been purified from a guilty conscience and with bodies washed with clean water. Let us hold on firmly to the hope we profess, because we can trust God to keep his promise. Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good.
WHAT IS A SACRED SPACE?
Scripture is filled with stories of believers creating sacred spaces in honor and memory of God's presence in their lives. The method of construction and use for these sacred spaces changed with the construction and eventual destruction of the physical Temple. However, today, there is no limit to the deeply spiritual ways that believers can incorporate Biblical practices in creating their own sacred spaces.
BEFORE THE TEMPLE
"Jacob came with all his people to Luz, which is now known as Bethel, in the land of Canaan. He built an altar there and named the place for the God of Bethel, because God had revealed himself to him there when he was running away from his brother."
AT THE TEMPLE
1 & 2 Chronicals
These books go into great detail about the construction of the Temple, essential responsibilities within it and the sacred articles necessary for worship.
Some of the elements required were a bronze altar, oil lamps, bowls, tables, floral decorations, instruments, incense and much more.
AFTER THE ASCENSION OF CHRIST
The Book of Revelation
Starting at Chapter 4, readers can learn what worship looks like in Heaven. Together at the altar believers and angels worship Jesus. There are scrolls, music and incense. Each believer receives a white stone and white linen garment.
Reading through the entirety of the Bible can help believers gain greater insight on ways to seek fellowship and connection with Christ.
