Transitioning from Glory to Glory!

2 Corinthians 3:18

But we all, with unveiled faces, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Entering the realms of Glory is an exciting adventure. However, it can be challenging to practice engaging heaven. We must practice going in and out of the spirit realm regularly. Practice makes perfect. The Bible refers to this as 'the reason of use, exercise your senses...  Hebrews 5:14. As we enter the powers of the age to come, we will start experiencing awesome things from the Lord. New experiences in the glory realm will challenge and stretch us. During these stretching times, we will have to learn how to navigate the transition from glory to glory. Part of the transition will be moving away from man's traditions and embracing God's ways.

The traditions of man vs The ways of God!

The apostle Paul understood the transition. Paul grew up in the traditions of his forefathers! He was zealous for the religious customs and laws of the Hebrew people. Philippians 3:3-6. The Holy Spirit revealed to his heart that he would have to be delivered from the Jewish people and the Gentiles so he could be sent back to them again. Here is part of a conversation that Paul had with King Agrippa recorded in the book of Acts: 

'And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ 15 So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 16 But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. 17 I will [b]deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I [c]now send you, 18 to open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified[d] by faith in Me.’ Acts 26:14-18.

Paul had an encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. He experiences the glory realm, which knocks him off his horse onto the ground. Jesus started revealing his destiny as he spoke to him out of the glory! Jesus said that he would make him a minister and a witness to the things he had seen and the things yet revealed to him. Some of the things revealed to him were in the unseen realm. I believe Paul experience paradise, third heaven, and received an abundance of revelation from the Holy Spirit! For Paul, this was a lifestyle choice to live in dual realms. He is the one that received the revelation from the Lord that we are transformed from glory to glory. Like Paul, the prophet Zechariah would learn about God's ways in the unseen realm. 

In Zechariah, we get to see in a vision a courtroom session in heaven involving Joshua, the high priest. “Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways, and if you keep My command, then you shall also judge My house, and likewise have charge of My courts; I will give you places to walk Among these who stand here. Zechariah 3:7

Imagine seeing into heaven and witnessing Satan bringing an accusation against the Lord's anointed, Joshua, the high priest. Then watching the verdict of mercy, grace, and love being released to Joshua when the angel was commanded to change Joshua filthy garments and put on new ones. This is amazing! You see, our transformation happens in the realms of glory. We have access to the courts by faith whenever an accusation has been brought against us by Satan and his minions. The Holy Spirit is revealing these truths to the church. It is up to us as believers to receive everything Papa has planned for us.

Finally, I want to finish with this thought to ponder. We are entering into the Kingdom age. The age of face-to-face encounters with Papa, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit regularly. We cannot disciple nations without this reality in our lives. It is time for the king's sons and daughters to arise and shine because your light has come for all to see, for the glory of the Lord arises upon us. Isaiah 60:1-3

Spiritual Maturity!

 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.14 But solid food belongs to those of full age, that is, those who, because of use, have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5:12-14

In my last post, I talked about entering the rest of God. There is some brewing in the heavenly realms in which the Holy Spirit calls Christians to transition into their upward call in Christ. This transitional time is significant. Papa is using this rest time to help us step into the next season of our lives. This next season in our lives will be about abiding in the vine.

We can do nothing without the Lord!

We can do nothing without the Lord's guidance. He will teach us the way we should go. Psalm 32:8. It is time to mature into sons and daughters. The Holy Spirit and the seven spirits of God will train us in the ways of God. Not knowing the ways of God has cost us the ability to advance the gospel of the kingdom in all nations. We have been so focused on God's acts that it is hard for us to follow his ways. You must trust the Lord to follow Him with all your heart!

In Psalm 23, we learn that Lord is the good shepherd! I had this experience in which the Lord showed me in a vision the reality of lying down in green pastures. Green pastures speak of rest. Jesus must sit on the seat of rest in our lives. He is our rest, and without him, we can do nothing. 

 Do you not believe I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority, but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. John 14:10. 

Like Jesus, we are learning to only do what we hear and see our Father doing. We are being trained to rule and reign with Papa, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. Why are we being trained to lead? The answer is that Papa wants us to manifest as sons and daughters.

14 For as many are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the Spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, e] Father. Romans 8:14-15

19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of [f]corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Romans 8:19-21

As we learn to receive solid food from the Holy Spirit, our transition from glory to glory will open the realms of heaven that we never experience before. Jesus is showing us how live on earth as it is in heaven. Let us go on this journey together!

Entering Perfection!


Therefore, you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. Matt 5:48

We are transitioning into a new era in Christendom. A new era called the Kingdom age. The kingdom age represents the veil between heaven and earth getting thinner. I've been experiencing this new era in my life. Recently, my son had an operation to straighten his spine from scoliosis. Two days before we were to go to the hospital, I had this experience with the Holy Spirit. In the experience, I had prayed about being healed from some childhood traumas before I went to bed. I had this overwhelming sense of peace and happiness when I woke up.

I felt like we were going on a holiday instead of going to the hospital for major surgery. Words can't express how I was feeling. Enquiring of Lord about what was happening, he quoted this passage of scripture to me: 

Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to [a]perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this [b]we will do if God permits. Hebrews 6:1-3.

The Holy Spirit spoke to me about entering perfection, which is entering into rest. Once you enter the rest of God, you enter the powers of the next age. You see, there is no striving in this place. the place is the completed work of Christ. the greater works that Jesus told us about in John 14:12. In the book of Hebrews, Chapters three and four, Papa speaks to us about entering this rest. How we enter this rest is through faith.

In the mirror translation of the Bible, I love in this passage of scripture below that it expresses faith is not us striving to enter in His rest:

4:3 Faith (not willpower) realizes our immediate access to God’s rest. Hear the echo of God’s cry through the ages, “Oh. If only they would enter my rest.” His rest celebrates perfection. His work is complete; the fall of mankind did not flaw its perfection.  Hebrews 4:3.

Papa wants us to enter His rest. This rest is the place of perfection where the powers of the age to come are easier to access by faith. These powers will include radical intimacy with the Godhead, entering different realms of heaven, engaging angels and the cloud of witnesses and so much more! 

We are stepping into perfection. Get ready, we are about to have the time of our lives. Let us not let unbelief stop us from stepping into rest of God!

The Jewish People's Right To Exist!

     Recently, in a dream, I was discussing with a woman about the threat that Iran posed against Israel. As we were having our conversation...
