TABLETS OF THE HEART

2 Corinthians 3:3 You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

The Scene: 1) The true believers’ hearts transformed from tablets of stone**, into tablets of the human heart, filled with the Holy Spirit–the fullness of the revelation of Christ. 2) The purple mist entering the heart represents the indwelling of God’s Holy Spirit into the human heart.  Royal purple is representative of God the Father and His eternal royalty.

**NOTE: The stone tablets represent God carving the Ten Commandments that He gave His people Israel after the bondage in Egypt, but are shown blank. The people of Israel did not accept God’s commandments but instead chose to follow the laws of man and idol worship.

Ezekiel 11:19I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people and I will be their God.”

Hebrews 8:10  “This is  the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

With the coming of Jesus, the New Testament apostles (Paul, Peter and others following their example and teaching) brought to the Gentiles the same same promises of salvation, grace, and mercy that God had given in the Old Testament.

Matthew 13:11 He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.” (unbelievers)

God’s people are being transformed into His likeness, day by day. People of God have been chosen to show the unsaved world God’s heart and His only-begotten Son, Jesus.

2 Corinthians 3:18 And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes  from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
