New Day Thinking
The hardest thing for the body of Christ to comprehend is we are a part of
Christ. So when the word says it is the Revelation of Jesus,
it is also the Revelation of You. When He died, you died, when He rose,
you rose. Know ye not you are the Body of Christ and members in
particular. 1Cor. 12:27. So when we read scripture we should take
what the word says as part of our experience in our walk with the Lord.
REVELATION=Disclosure, an unveiling in your mind. Jesus says to be
"Born again" to SEE the Kingdom of God. Deliverance or Salvation comes as
we walk with understanding as we rise from babes to Fathers, on from carnality
REVELATION CHAP. 4
After this, I looked and a Door was opened in Heaven: This door is the
opening of the CHRIST MIND into your Heavenly mind, the Greek word heaven
(ouranos) = elevation. . In the spiritual, heaven is the abode of
God (an elevated state of mind). I must be awakened to Spirit to
understand the door is Christ, and Christ the access to the Father, thus coming
into an elevated state of mind. And the First (foremost) Voice (idea of
disclosure, a tone, a vibration) which I heard was as it were of a trumpet (idea
of Quavering or Reverberation) talking with me: which said "COME UP
HITHER" What this is saying to the Body of Christ is "get out of the
earthly, natural, way of thinking and become elevated to the Christ thinking."
How does this happen? Well, the first or foremost thing is to realize that
humanistic religion (man made rules, regulations) will not bring you closer to
the Father. You may experience great music which elevates your emotions
into what is called worship, and that is good, but the true worshiper is one who
bows his WILL to a greater ONE, prostrating his will to HIS WILL. Yes,
Lord, not my will but yours is done. This is when you hear the call of the
Christ in you "COME UP HITHER"
There comes a time in your growth when those around you may not be able to
answer your questions, and your heart is crying out "I know there is more" I
realize you must be under governors and tutors till the time of your showing.
There comes a time to get off the milk and start understanding the meat of the
word. A baby cannot grow mature on the milk; they must change their
diet. Many stay on the milk too long and become captivated by humanistic
religion. Rituals that go nowhere, still remaining in the fear of everyday
life, never overcoming, never realizing WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST. A powerful
loving Son of God sent here for the benefit of others.
This is the time to move on and upward. Walk on the water. Take your
eyes off of man and look only unto HIM. He will put those in your path
that you are ready for. He will give you your answers. So let's Come Up
Hither that the Spirit of Grace may show you WHO YOU ARE IN HIM, and also of
things that you are being prepared for.
As you move out of the box of religious mentality, your brethren may question
your walk and your new teachers, just listen to the Holy Spirit within you and
stand firm. Your brethren may even think you are in danger, or that you
are being deceived. Deep within you, you know that this is not true.
It is all part of your growth. Remember, my trust is in the Lord and He will
lead me to all Truth.
As for the accuser, Satan, the earthen mind, remember what Jesus said. "HE
CAME AND FOUND NO PLACE IN ME." & "GIVE NO PLACE TO THE DEVIL."
Satan only has as much power as YOU GIVE HIM. Jesus defeated him at
Calvary. Jesus said " IT IS FINISHED" It is now time for us to stop using
Satan for an excuse and as someone to blame. Jesus said, " I beheld Satan
as lightning fall from heaven. He only works in your earthly thinking; get
him out of your heavens. Jesus also said, " Get thee behind me Satan, you
savour not the things of God, but the things of men. (Mark 8:33) As
for me and my house we are going on to know the Lord. It was rough on
Peter when the Lord said that to him, and it will be the same when a brother or
sister may try to hold you back with fear.
Discerning of spirits is a gift, to discern the spirits (attitudes) that come
out of the mouth of a person, for out of the mouth the heart speaketh, thus
showing you the condition of the heart (soul of man).
So my dear brethren, let not anything or anybody cause you to hold God in a box
of religion. Once several years ago God spoke and said to my wife "you
have me in a little box, open it up and let me out." So I say to
you, UP, UP, AND AWAY TO HEAVENLY DIMENSIONS.
Your loving brother in Christ,
