The call to the mountain of God
By Pieter Kirstein
In the judgment of the house of the LORD God the Father shall restore the purity of His Son’s gospel through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Government flows from the throne of grace down the river of life. This river is the flow of the ministry and the life of the sevenfold Spirit of God.
The fullness of the Deity shall come forth in Person through the forerunner ministries of the manifested sons of God. These move with the Lord in governmental authority and they have been brought into agreement with the ways of God. They understand His judgments and His counsel. Every foundation that men have raised up and built upon shall experience the fire of His jealousy for have we forgotten the zeal that Christ have for His Father’s house?
He is calling a people unto himself. God is calling for a people who are willing to renounce everything that does not come from Him. He is calling a people up into His mountain, the MOUNTAIN OF ZION which is THE KINGDOM, the TABERNACLE and the DWELLING PLACE OF GOD.
Isaiah 1:24 Therefore says the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will rid myself of my adversaries, and avenge myself of my enemies:
25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and thoroughly purge away your dross, and take away all your alloy:
26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
27 Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and her converts with righteousness.
28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.
Isaiah 28:5 In that day shall the LORD of hosts be a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the remnant of His people,
6 And for a Spirit of justice to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn back the battle at the gate.
7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and taken from the breasts.
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.
1 A Psalm of David. LORD, who shall abide in your tabernacle? who shall dwell in your holy hill?
2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.
3 He that backbites not with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor.
4 In whose eyes a vile person is despised; but he honors them that fear the LORD. He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not.
5 He that puts not out his money at interest, nor takes reward against the innocent. He that does these things shall never be moved.
I saw a vision of the bride of the Lord pursuing God down the river of life according to Ezekiel 47. That vision is recorded as follows.
Ezek 47:1 Afterward he brought me again to the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar. 2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without to the utter gate by the way that looks eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. 5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
The different levels of that river speak of our levels of surrender as we willingly yield our lives to the cleansing fire and ministry of the Holy Spirit flowing from the throne of grace. We must become a people whom the Lord has conquered and we must pursue God until our lives are completely immersed by His Spirit.
Why would anyone want to apply the truth of Jesus Christ to their lives?
Because through our obedience to Christ we allow Gods power to impact us to set us free, to change us, to heal us, to restore us, to bless us and most important, to guide us down the path of life into a deep and wonderful relationship with the Lover of our souls until we become one with Him.
How hungry are you beloved child of God? The Lord walks close to a person who desires Him above all else and He gladly satisfies a hungry heart from the bounty of His love. He always welcomes those whose desire it is to indulge Him as their GLORIOUS DELICIOUS. O that we may taste and see that the Lord is good. God the Father, Jesus His Son and the Lord the Holy Spirit wants you to become their eternal habitation as you, through your willing heart, allow them entrance into your life. We must pursue Him, spend time with Him, build radical intimate relationship with Him until He comsumes our lives completely and until every stronghold is shattered and broken down.
Until He himself as God Almighty has become your stronghold, which means until He has taken a strong hold of you in the very depths of your foundation and nothing can pluck you from His hand and until you are only motivated and driven through Godly passion and desire and please allow me to testify beloved that nothing in this world can be compared to the value of a personal devoted relationship with God, simply NOTHING. He is a joy unspeakable and full of Glory.
It is the intense desire of our heavenly Father for us to become acquainted with His Son because the heart of the Father is revealed in Jesus; He is indeed the only way to the Father. If you want to know the Father then you need to follow Jesus through humble but radical obedience. This is the reason why the Lord Himself said to the people in John 6:28-29, when they asked Him that very important question, WHAT SHALL WE DO, THAT WE MAY WORK THE WORKS OF GOD?
THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD THAT YOU BELIEVE IN THE ONE WHOM HE SENT. This faith in the Word, Christ Jesus, is only acceptable to God when it expresses itself through radical obedience because of love and only the love of the Holy Spirit has the ability to empower us unto obedience as we allow Him to empty our hearts of contrary desires which interfere with us being sold-out and devoted to God.
One day i asked the Father: So how do I have a relationship with You? He answered me and said: JUST FOLLOW MY SON AND I WILL COME TO YOU.
The Lord Jesus said an awesome thing in John 14:23, If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word, and My Father shall love him. And We will come to him and will make a dwelling place with him.
We come to the Father through Jesus and the Father comes to us through Jesus and in Jesus we become one because Jesus is the dwelling place of the Father. This divine sacred union between us and the Trinity is made a reality by the power and the Person of the Holy Spirit that dwells inside of us. The Holy Spirit is with us and in us forever (John 14:16-18)
This is what the Lord revealed to Annie Schisler about this hidden place: The Place of His Shared BeingThrough a new encounter of my spirit with Jesus, I entered a place I had never been before. It was very special and high as it was an exclusively separated place for someone very special and loved.
Upon entering, He let me know this place was for the beloved. The beauty was overwhelming and great peace and security emanated everywhere. The incomparable holiness of Christ Himself could be felt. It was a place without a single spot of contamination, purer than the purest crystal and impossible to be described with words. There was a complete absence of sin.
I could ascertain that not only Jesus was in that high place. But also the Father and the Holy Spirit were there in perfect harmony and unity! How can the holiness of that place ever be described? No adequate words can be found. That translucent purity was the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that permanently flowed together in perfect and high love and unity. This infinitely high and sublime place was captivating and attractive beyond all description.
Afterwards I saw how Jesus Himself was that place. It was actually inside His own being. Then I was able to comprehend that the Father and the Holy Spirit were actually sharing the place that had been prepared for His beloved.
That place had been set aside for those who were completely surrendered to Him, the beloved who had absorbed Him as a sponge absorbs water. Just like the sponge has nothing in itself, it is empty in itself, but with great absorbing capacity, the beloved that enter into that place can draw into themselves the essence of the Trinity while being contained in the Trinity. What a precious reward for those lives that walked the way of surrender! Being attracted by such pure and high love held in the Trinity and prepared for His beloved, is the most precious reward that can ever be imagined. I then saw how His beloved changed from being like sponges into becoming liquid itself. They had undergone a metamorphosis so Christ Himself, being wholly integrated into His nature, could absorb them. They experienced this transformation for they had given themselves in love to Him.(end of quote)
Whosoever desires to reach this blessed elevation of intimacy must follow the Lord with all of their heart. Jeremiah 29:13 And you shall seek and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Proverbs 4:5 Get wisdom, get understanding; forget not; nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the main thing; get wisdom; and with all your getting get understanding.
Proverbs 16:16 How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver!
David says in Psalm 119:104 Through Your Commandments I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
If we desire to receive understanding from the Lord then we will have to seek for it and a mans heart is revealed by that which he pursues. If your heart is full of worldly desire then worldly things will be what you seek after but when your heart is filled with the love of God then your intense desire will be toward Him and you will find yourself pursuing God as your greatest treasure. We need to understand that the temporal things of this world holds no value to a true bond-servant of Christ because once you have discovered Him as your only treasure then you gladly let go of the things of this world, IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
Carnal pursuit becomes an obstacle to the treasure hunter of eternity and this is exactly what we are called to be, TREASURE HUNTERS OF ETERNITY. This is exactly what relationship with Almighty God is all about, it is an eternal pursuit and seeking after the greatest treasure ever found. He is the greatest of discoveries that anyone could ever make and the more you seek the more you find and the more you desire the more He will give of Himself to you and happy and to be envied is the man in pursuit of God. This Eternal Living Treasure himself said, when speaking of the beatitudes of His kingdom in Matthew 5, blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Did not the Lord say in John 17and this is eternal life that they may know You, the only true God?
Christianity is the most intense, intimate and personal call and challenge to enter into an eternal relationship with the great and awesome infinite God who inhabits eternity but whosoever desires to dwell with Him must come to Him in complete humility as He declares in Isaiah 57:15 For so says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, and His name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, even with the contrite and humble spirit; to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the heart of the contrite ones.
A humble person realizes his deep intense need because he knows without a deep relationship with the Lord he stands completely bankrupt. Smith Wigglesworth said, YOU CANNOT TRULY HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS IF YOU HAVE ANY LEANING TOWARD THE WORLDY LIFE
Jesus showed me a corporate setting of the church revealed in the last supper. God said that all His disciples sat at a different distance from the Lord by choice, John was the one who reclined in His bosom and was known as the disciple whom Jesus loved. Then the Lord God chose that disciple, out of that place of intimacy to go and receive and record the Revelation of Jesus Christ. What is the Lord saying? THAT I REVEAL MYSELF TO THOSE WHO BECOME INTIMATE WITH ME. If you live a life of intimacy and pursuit of God, He will unveil Himself to you and as Hebrews 11:6 declares, God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Every time that the Lord gives you the revelatory seeds of His truth, you are to allow the Holy Spirit to plant it deep into your heart because if you resist the Sower then what will happen to the seed? I can assure you that we will give an account of every seed that weve lost or abused.
Did the Lord not say that a tree is known by its fruit?
Every time that you hear the truth of God, revealed in Jesus Christ, the Lord the Holy Spirit is standing at the door of your heart knocking, if you hear His voice and open the door, He will come into you (as the temple of God) to commune with His beloved and to transform your heart into a suitable dwelling place for God. As the Living Word His desire is to bring separation between your soul, your spirit and your joints and marrow, in other words Jesus, as a person, wants to become one with you as He weaves Himself into the very fibers of your being.
True communion with Christ is to eat His flesh and drink His blood as God declared in John chapter 6. What does this mean? The Word of God is our spiritual bread and obedience is the practical way in which we eat the flesh of Christ because we receive Him as the truth into our hearts and unless we eat His flesh and drink His blood we have no part in Him. True communion is to become one with Him. His word brings healing to our flesh and nourishment to our bones as we apply it to our lives, in other words, the life of Christ is imparted to us through the word of God. His words are spirit and they impart life to those who obey Him. Obedience is the key that unlocks the life and the power of God in His word. Disobedience and rebellion against His divine will produce death. He created man and only He knows what is best for man. If you submit to the order of your Maker then you will naturally discover true happiness because everything He does reverberates from the core of His nature and this nature is love in its true essence.
