RATHER THAN LIVING IN THE TRANSIENT, WHAT IS SEEN NOW, IN THE NATURAL REALITY ~ GOD WANTS US TO LIVE IN THE SUPERNATURAL ETERNAL REALM. WE ARE, PRESENT TENSE, SEATED WITH JESUS IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN THE SUPERNATURAL ETERNAL REALM!
Jesus Christ has entered our open doors of Faith. He dwells in our hearts. And He wants to imprint His Divine Nature upon our minds, wills and emotions.
God’s Holy Spirit indwells us as Believers, so we may be filled with all the fullness of God – Christ dwells within our hearts through faith. And we must spend intimate time with Jesus, know His love, stay rooted and grounded in God’s Word. But God also wants His Spirit to empower us, so we may walk into our Divine Destinies, in His supernatural Kingdom Power and Authority to do greater works than Jesus.
This is the meaning IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH, of KNOWING GOD’S WORD. Knowing God’s Promises. And knowing Who God is, and who we are IN HIM. And knowing that we can do nothing without His supernatural power of love and grace.
God is calling us to AWAKEN. ARISE AND COME UP TO THE SUPERNATURAL HIGH PLACE IN HIM IN HIS HEAVENLY ETERNAL REALM OF GRACE AND GLORY. He is calling us to pause. Be still and know that He is God. Listen to hear His Voice. And to follow the leading and guidance of His Holy Spirit. And to meditate on His Word both day and night. And pray without ceasing, in all prayer and supplication. God wants us to ALIGN our thoughts, minds, hearts, emotions, wills, souls and spirits with Him. God wants us to ADJUST our natural thinking to His supernatural ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. God wants us to live and walk in His Divine Nature and Holy Spirit, as Jesus modeled through His spoken words, and the way He lived. God is calling us to minister in supernatural Kingdom power and authority, and see what His Heart sees. To love as He loves with the passion of Jesus Christ.
“We are raised up together,
And made to sit together
In the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
That in the ages to come
He might show exceeding riches of His grace
In His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith,
And that not of yourselves;
It is the gift of God,
Not of works, lest anyone should boast.
For we are the workmanship,
Created in Christ Jesus for good works,
Which God prepared beforehand
That we should walk in them.”
DIVINE ALIGNMENT~ “Be still and KNOW!”
“Be still and know that I AM God.
I will be exalted among the nations!
I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
When we praise, pray and worship our Father God, and welcome HIS HOLY PRESENCE ~ being still, waiting, and listening to Him ~ we come into complete ALIGNMENT WITH HIM. When we come before His Throne of Grace, willingly and obediently, wanting to surrender and give ourselves totally and completely TO HIM, with no thought of wanting to take or to gain BUT TO WORSHIP HIM, in heart, spirit, mind, body and soul, to give Him all power, honor, blessings, glory and praise, then we are in ALIGNMENT WITH HIM.
When we PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD and STAND; and gird our waist with truth; put on the breastplate of righteousness; shod our feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; and above all take the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, (Ephesians 6) We are then positioned in DIVINE ALIGNMENT IN SUPERNATURAL HEAVENLY PLACES.
God is calling us to “Come Up Higher In Him.” Now is the time to make the adjustments in our personal lives and whatever we are doing, saying, or however we are living that is NOT in proper alignment with the AUTHORITY OF THE WORD OF GOD, we need to remove these obstacles!
KINGDOM POWER AND AUTHORITY
“And Jesus came and spoke to them saying.
‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
And of the Holy Spirit,
Teaching them to observe all things,
That I have commanded you.
And lo, I am with you always,
Even to the end of the age.’”
“And He said to them,
‘It is not for you to know times or seasons
Which the Father has put in His own authority.
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,
And you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem,
And in all Judea and Samaria,
And to the end of the earth.’”
Jesus spoke this promise to His disciples after His death, burial and resurrection just before He Ascended to His Father in Heaven.
“When the day of Pentecost had fully come,
They were all together in one place.
Suddenly there came a sound from heaven
Like the rushing of a violent tempest blast
And there appeared tongues as of fire distributing themselves,
And rested on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
And began to speak with other tongues,
As the Spirit was giving them utterance.”
