The pathway into His glory
Once while I was baptizing a brother, God showed me a powerful thing.
It was the most beautiful experience I ever had in the waters of baptism.
In the Spirit I sensed we stood inside the river of life that flows from the throne of the Father and I asked the Lord to come and baptise His son through me.
I saw the different levels of surrender as one goes deeper down the river of God in our pursuit of a closer and deeper relationship with Him. We read about these levels in the river in Ezekiel 47.
Then the Father spoke and said ” I am giving Myself to you through My river. How deep do you want to go in Me?”
In Ezekiel 47 we read;
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.
I saw a vision of the corporate bridal body of the Lord walking down this river of life toward the throne of Almighty God. These different levels speak of our different levels of surrender in our pursuit of Him and our desire to be clothed and immersed with His Spirit wholly. Holiness and yieldedness walks hand in hand. If you desire to be holy then you must be willing to yield yourself completely to God. A yielded life is a holy life. We are called to become wholly surrendered vessels unto the Lord through whom God’s holiness can be seen unto the glory and praise of His wonderful name. To flow is to yield and to yield is to flow. She will move with her God wherever His river will flow.
Today around the world the holiness of our God is greatly distorted because people resist being wholly devoted to Him. A spirit of compromise have entered many Christian’s lives and the world around us is judging God through His halfhearted lukewarm children.
What is the difference between the profane and the holy?
What is godliness and what is carnality?
Can oil and water mix together?
The answer is, NO!
There must be a separation and a consecration and an abandonment unto the God who’s habitation is holy.
Therefore He has prepared a people, a peculiar people and a holy nation. A people who declare the praises of Him who called them out of the bondages of darkness into the wonder and the freedom of His glorious embrace.
THE ULTIMATE DESIRE AND PURSUIT OF EVERY BELIEVER MUST BE ONENESS WITH GOD.
I love the definition of GUIDANCE. It means
We are called to move in synch with the Trinity because they have a divine plan which they desire to execute in these last days through a surrendered people, a corporate living tabernacle of tried living stones being fitted together into a habitation of God by His Spirit. We are in a prophetic time of rising and we are being brought into His fullness.
The Spirit speaks “This generation shall witness My glory in an unprecedented way, says the Spirit of God. Yes I am bringing a people into My fullness and there shall be a glory explosion 💥. You have been tested in the crucible of My purifying fires and within those fires I have called forth and am bringing forth a people unto Myself. They shall walk this earth as even I have walked this earth but greater shall be My reach and My divine expansion throughout the earth through My corporate body of sold-out to God love-slaves. And I shall glorify My great name and I shall be lifted up within a yielded surrendered people and all nations shall be drawn to hear of My fame and the knowledge of the glory of the Lord shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.
Is it not written in My word in John 14:12 Truly, truly, I say to you, He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to my Father?
Indeed a greater work shall be wrought by My Spirit within the earth through the corporate body of Jesus the Christ. ”
Colossians 2: For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And you are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also you are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also you are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who has raised Him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, has he quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
We are coming full circle and this fullness of the Deity shall manifest itself by God’s sevenfold Spirit through a people that have surrendered themselves wholly unto the Lord their God. It is time for fullness, it is time to be resurrected and to be caught up into the cloud of His glory.
1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein you greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, you are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found to praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, you love; in whom, though now you see Him not, yet believing, you rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come to you:
11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
And indeed His glory shall now follow because it’s a principle found in the life of the faithful disciple. First the cross of death unto self then resurrection into the glories of our God.
1 Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to test you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, since you are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1 John 3
1 Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew Him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as he is.
We as the corporate bride of Jesus Christ are being set up for a face to face encounter with God. Years ago during my dry wilderness season He told me, “I AM DRAWING YOU INTO THE SECRET PLACE WHERE YOU WILL SEE MY FACE AND HEAR MY VOICE ”
We come through a drawing, yes we come through a courtship and purification season and are now being brought forth into the Day of His power.
1 The LORD said to my Lord, Sit you at My right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.
2 The LORD shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion: rule you in the middle of your enemies.
3 Your people shall be willing in the day of Your power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: You have the dew of Your youth.
4 The LORD has sworn, and will not repent, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
5 The Lord at Your right hand shall strike through kings in the day of His wrath.
6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; He shall wound the heads over many countries.
7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall He lift up the head.
It is time to be commissioned by His Spirit to go forth and be released into His power.
IT’S HARVEST TIME AND THE EARTH SHALL BE REAPED.
A new Day has come!
