The Father revealed to me how He transforms us into SPIRITUAL EAGLES.
By Pieter Kirstein
He calls us into His heights to soar with Him on the winds of the Spirit and to open the eyes of our understanding that our hearts and minds might be enlightened to start to see everything from His perspective.
How can we expect to be raised up unless we choose to humble ourselves and unless we are willing to let go of the things that wants to enslave us and keep us distracted and bound to the lower life and ways of the fleshly carnal man ?
Your treasure is found in what your heart is focused on. You live to pursue what you treasure and love.
God said to me ” find the deepest desire of any man and you shall discover his god”
In other words; What is really the foundation desire and drive on which your life is built upon?
What drives you?
What is your passion?
What inspires you?
A fleshly person is captured by, ruled by, governed by, controlled by, driven by and preocupied with the things and matters of this temporary world.
He is a prisoner of the god of this world (THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR) because his soul (mind, will and emotions) has been captured by and is kept in bondage to material and fleshly pursuits.
When placed in a balance, he has been enriched through these fleshly pursuits and is really bank-rupt compared to spiritual matters because the desires of his flesh enslaves him.
He indulges his flesh but keeps his spirit starved. He is a bond-servant of the god of self because he worships the idol of self. He is imprisoned in his own desires because he is in bondage to himself.
WHAT YOU FEED ON YOU WILL GROW ON SO IF YOU FEED ON WORLDLY THINGS YOU WILL GROW AND BE STRENGTHENED IN CARNALITY.
IF YOU FEED ON THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT THEN YOU WILL GROW AND BE STRENGTHENED IN GODLINESS.
GODLINESS IS GODLIKENESS WHICH MEANS WE BECOME MORE AND MORE LIKE JESUS. WHEN WE FEED ON THE WORD OF GOD WHICH IS THE BREAD OF LIFE AND WE OBEY IT THEN IT PRODUCES THE LIFE OF CHRIST WITHIN US.
We need to ask the Lord to increase and to strengthen our spiritual appetite and desire toward the things of the Spirit.
A desire defined is an inward drive of the heart and passion to seek satisfaction or fulfillment in a certain thing. Your passion is determined by your inward drive.
Your inward drive will cause you to be passionate about the object of your affection. In other words, the condition of your heart will be determined by those things which you pursue.
Worship is an act of admiration towards the object of your affection. It is an outward expression of an inward affection. The one who has won your heart is the one that you will worship.
He is the one that will control and rule your desires. He is the one you will be passionate about. He is the one through whom your heart will be enriched because he will become your treasure. The person to whom you have surrendered all desire shall be your conqueror.
Who is in control of your desires child of God?
Understand this: all worldly desires and fleshly pursuits must be considered threats through which the enemy of your soul operates to brake or distort your devotion, pursuit and worship of God.
Therefore the child of God are admonished and commanded throughout the gospel of Christ, through the cross of self-denial, to not conform to the former lusts through which Satan works to keep us in bondage to this fallen world.
The principle is this: If you want to live the higher life with God in the Spirit then you must renounce and abstain from worldly pursuits that causes you to be dominated by the lower, earthly and fleshly life.
These things produces spiritual death and has no eternal value and through the pursuit of these things we accomplish nothing.
Pursuing the kingdom of God, which is of eternal value, is an inward matter of the heart because the King of this inward kingdom wants to capture and conquer and rule your heart.
God gave us the golden key of a successful life when He said in Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust does corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust does corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be sound, your whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take you thought for clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Therefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, How shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
33 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought of the things for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Through a prophetic encounter many years ago while I was in a fast the Spirit of God sent these huge majestic royal blue luminescence revelatory angelic beings to pick me up and fly me into the realm of the spirit to show me how idolatry works in our hearts.
This encounter was according to Eze 14:3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their hearts, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their faces: should I be inquired of at all by them?
Eze 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
Jer 18:15 Because my people have forgotten me, they have burned incense to worthless idols, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in pathways, and not on a highway.
Eze 6:9 And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations where they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their adulterous heart, which has departed from me, and with their eyes, which play the harlot after their idols: and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.
I was held in the huge arm of one of those majestic angels in my revelatory encounter and we flew to this neighborhood full of these houses which represented the lives and dwellings of people.
Then the other angels waited outside and the one holding me like a puppy in his massive arm took me into this house which I today know by revelation of the Holy Spirit represented my life, my house or temple and dwelling place.
Then we approached the altar of my heart and I saw all these different idols standing there.
These represented the works of the flesh through sinful and lustful desires and things through which the devil was working to draw my attention away from being sold-out to God.
When we become enslaved to various things like alcohol, drugs, nicotine, television or anything or anyone that becomes more important to us than God that causes a defiling effect or influence on our lives then the demon or spirit of darkness that drives that desire sets up its idol within our hearts and is worshiped.
Eze 14:6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.
Then the angel spoke to me audibly in my mind and asked me; “What do you want to do with these? ”
Then by the power of the Holy Spirit I took each of those idols and I threw them unto the floor and the power of God shattered them into pieces.
The angel moved with me around that oval looking altar of my heart and I destroyed everyone of them.
The Father took me through a prophetic encounter to reveal His inward housecleaning process in us, because we are called to become His habitation and dwelling.
It was awesome because the more I emptied out my heart and the more I destroyed my idols the freer and lighter I became.
When I took the last one and threw it on the floor the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit suddenly came upon me and God created and equipped me in the realm of the spirit with beautiful glorious majestic wings.
I cannot explain the feeling when His power hit me and the joyful freedom that I experienced.
God showed me what He was bringing me into.
Those angels became excited like little children because they realised that I was now able to fly with them on the winds of God’s Spirit. So we left the house and stretched out our wings.
As we did that the power of God was released through the winds of the Holy Spirit and He took us high into the heavens.
I literally experienced the meaning of Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
