We are able to access the eternal spiritual realm through the Holy Spirit who connects us to Jesus. He is the Living Word of God. Jesus Christ is the only God-given door that we enter into through prayer, meditation, praise and worship, dreams and vision. Jesus, the Anointed One, is the only God who has been raised from the dead. Jesus was raised from the slumber of death, becoming the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep or died. We know that death entered the world through the physical body of Adam when he sinned, so it took the spiritual body of the perfect man Jesus to make the resurrection of the dead a reality for us. Adam introduced death to mankind; but Jesus brought forth eternal life for everyone who believes on Him. The weak, fleshly, naturally animated physical body that is planted in the earth decays. The spiritually animated splendor and power of the body raised from the earth cannot decay.
The first man, Adam, came from the dust of the earth, so he shared an earthly nature with mankind and became a living soul. The last Adam, Jesus, came from heaven so He shared His heavenly nature with those destined for heaven and became a life-giving Spirit. There is a kingdom order. The body is not enlivened first by the spiritual but by the physical; then after our rebirth into salvation the Holy Spirit becomes our life-giving force. We carry the image of the earth in our earthen bodies; so we will also carry the image of Jesus the heavenly man in our new resurrected bodies. We will not all sleep in death; but we will all be instantly changed and transformed.
When our spiritual eyes are opened to see God's unseen kingdom we come into the realization that God is omnipresent. His angels and a great cloud of witnesses have always been around us. God has gifted His seers, prophets and millions of believers to view, hear, and participate in this invisible realm while we live on earth. But for others, who have not developed their seeing gift, they are only able to see this eternal territory after they step out of their bodies at death. Being freed from their physical body they can now enter into the dominion of the spirit. Our natural eyes saw ordinary things while living on the earth, but now in death, our spiritual eyes are opened to see the vast expanses of eternity.
Led by the Spirit into the Wilderness
There are many false doors into the realm of spiritual darkness. Sadly, those who force their way past Jesus to enter through these counterfeit doors are led to spiritual death. Some of these false doors include but are not limited to drugs, hypnotic trances, chanting, focusing or meditating on nothingness, witchcraft, casting spells, incantations, soul travel, astral-projection, and channeling demonic spirits. All of these false doors lead to poverty, failure, depression, the despair of disease, and finally physical and spiritual death. Jesus Christ alone is the only true doorway that gives the believer access to the highest spiritually abundant, eternal life. "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door (Jesus), but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door (Jesus) is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear His voice; and He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out. And when He brings out His own sheep, He goes before them; and the sheep follow Him, for they know His voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." (John 10:1-5)
2018 was the year of door. "For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries." (1 Corinthians 16:9) Believers are able to discern the lion behind the door and the lion that stands before the door as we are often caught between two roars. The Lion of Judah roars, "Do not fear, open the door, gain energy and momentum to run into your inheritance to occupy and advance for I am with you! War forward against your enemies to unlock your financial fullness of provision for the next season." The other roar is the enemy. His lying voice tries to stop us in our path, to devour through fear, intimidation and accusation.
Hell wants to keep you bound to the past through doubt and unbelief. Betrayal overwhelms, rejection and abandonment makes you feel fatherless so that hopelessness can establish iniquitous patterns in your generational bloodlines that blocks the measure in which the Holy Spirit can move. The enemy develops strategies to compound your distractions to plunder your losses by creating captivity so that you never have vision to harvest your field. Learn to bring your First Fruits to God to recover loss and to be restored. God's grace causes us to gain momentum that hell can't stop in order to advance God's kingdom. We must learn to face off our enemies in the wilderness or they will attach to, overtake and captivate us until we loose vision and die in the wilderness. (Matthew Chapters 3 and 4)
To overcome we must be led by the Spirit into the wilderness to face off the enemy of your future. (Luke 4, Genesis 7:4, Exodus 24:18; 1 Kings 19:8, John 3:4) To overcome resist the temptation of demanding your physical material needs be met now. (Luke 4:3-4, Deuteronomy 8:3, Exodus 7) Battle the temptation of desiring a greater glory and dominion than your true sphere of authority can sustain. Credit and praise God for your abilities. (Luke 4:5-8, Deuteronomy 6:13)
Those who went before us did not overcome their demons so we must not only conquer our demons but also the previous generations demons to insure the success of the next generation. Learn to manipulate time to your benefit in order to accomplish God's will or destiny will be postponed for another generation. A new spiritual perspective will remove the scales from our eyes so we are able to see new contacts, doors and resources that are within our ability to reach, develop, patent, copyright, market and obtain their wealth. God is paving the way. It is time to catch up with what is already waiting for us on the other side to obtain and fulfill destiny. The promises of God are on the move; so align to move with His promises.
Your New Identity
The Wilderness will war against your new identity. Put your emotional carnal desires to death or Satan's lies will empower demons to attack, control and rule your future. No more fear! Be bold to break into a new realm of empowerment. It is time to leave the old behind to transition into a time of activation that will propagate what will manifest in the future.
Demand the enemy to leave your presence and divine alignments, but carefully watch his movement and learn his patterns in the wilderness. (Luke 4:21) Remember presumption gets you out of proper timing and you will miss the access to your promise. Don't let rejection stop you. (Luke 4:16-30; Matthew 13:53) Remember your purpose and call. (Luke 4:8-12, Psalm 91:11-12, Exodus 17:7) If you have a religious spirit the enemy will use the Word of God against you. Learn to discern the Spirit of Truth. Jesus prayed for Peter to overcome so he could exit the wilderness without his emotional weaknesses to obtain the grandeur of his future, hope and promised destiny. To enter and exit the wilderness we must go through Jesus the everlasting door. Get in touch with what causes you anxiety and fear then roll your cares upon the Lord for He cares for you. God and His angelic army split the Red Sea so we can walk right through it on dry land.
Dismantle the trip wires and explosive land mines that Leviathan has set over the threshold. Judah's praise goes through the door first to release the wind of grace for breakthrough. Decree "No snake or dragon is going to keep me from going through the door!" Put the python spirit under your feet and crush his head. This will cause him to release his coiled constructions so you are free to walk through the door. The struggle through the Dark Night of the Soul ends when we agree with God's process, repent and stop resisting change. Let the Holy Spirit wind continue to blow you through the door of vision into a brighter future.
The greatest power in the universe is love.
